After a week delay I finally found out I was accepted into the pre-nursing program. I have a few questions for you if you do not mind me asking:
1.) How much trouble did you have finding a job after graduation? I am leaving a BSN program to do a ASN program and wondering if this will make a difference. I still plan on doing a RN to BSN program but I have no idea if having an ASN vs. a BSN will make an impact when finding a job as there are a lot of varying opinions on the subject.
2.) Is it possible to do the pre-nursing classes in 2 semesters and then start nursing school in the 3rd semester? I know most students take the 3rd semester to take their CNA/other classes but I already have my CNA and have taken all of the english, soc, psych etc. classes. I just want to start nursing classes as soon as possible.
Thank you so much for all of your help!
Congratulations! As far as getting hired after graduation, if you want to work within the CHS system, you won't have a problem getting hired. Most of us had jobs lined up (including hard to get into departments like ED, STICU, MICU, NICU, L & D, peds, etc) a couple of months before graduation.
No, you can't skip that 3rd semester, unfortunately, even if you already have all the other classes done. I already had my CNA so I took micro and got it out of the way. If you don't have any other needed classes, you basically have to sit out that semester. It has to do with the timing of the schedule for admissions, etc.
