I'm here and glad to see this got off the ground. There more of us out there (distance/independent students) than even I had first known.
I have applied to Deaconess and if accepted, I will beging in June. I did check out Excelsior and decided that Deaconess was better suited for me and my situation. The folks at Deaconess are extremely professional and will answer (or call you back if need be) or get the answer for you.
I am working on my last pre-req and will finish in May. I have applied to the ASN program and if all goes as planned I should finish by July 2005.
I am glad to see all the interest in this forum and hope to share as we all go along the distance/independent road.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL,
Sheeeish, what a dope I started a new thread instead of replying to the one already in progress. I'll attempt to transfer this over.
