    Well three years to pay off $17,000 was an awesome deal for me as I will be paying off my $12,000 loan from UNC for my first degree for longer than that. I saw the three year contract as a guaranteed job after graduation lol, but I plan on staying in the area for a very long time so it wouldn't hinder any life plans for me. Anyway, I am very bummed that there is no funding. I sent my ACT scores with my application (not sure if that is what you are asking).

    I also sent ACT. I do not know why that became a requirement this year. Anyway, I am keeping my fingers crossed.

    I do not think you will have to repay the money. i think they just commit you for 3 years to work for them. If you plan on staying in the area, then that is no problem for you.

    anyone has any news about when we will be hearing from WSSU???

    I went back to look at the threads for last year and the acceptance notification was sent on October 4, 2011. Going by that date we should be expecting to hear something from them next week all things being equal.

    Someone in the nursing admissions office told me to expect word in mid-October. I'm hoping that it will come sooner.

    Hi Faithfullove,
    Do you have any Idea as to when they are going to let us know whether we were selected or not for the 2013 ABSN?

    They will not let us know and till probably mid October. But you can always call and ask what they're saying now.

    Baptist is tentatively going to offer books and tuition to maybe 20 students for the 2013 N12 class. This is less than prior as stipends and fees I understand have been trimmed. But even at that it is still something. CFNC has opportunities for potential nursing students, check out their website. (College Foundation of North Carolina)

    Hi Nana,
    Are they going to interview selected applicants as they did last year?

    Waiting is a very difficult game

    How reliable is your source about Baptist tentatively offering books/tuition to 20? Where did you hear/read that? That would be great! I've applied to the 2013 program and then want to go on for the FNP I'm trying to minimize my debt completely.

    I'm running to my mailbox daily!
