  1. Hi, I am very frustrated right now. My husband and I just moved to Brooklyn because my husband got a job here. I already have a BA and am planning on going to a public university to do an accelerated BSN. However, I just read on CUNY Hunter's website that they don't accept repeated pre-requisites. I stupidly failed a Statistics course 5 years ago, and, even though my cumulative GPA is good, now that course is coming back to bite me in the ass! Hunter just told me that they won't accept me because of that. Now, it looks like my only other option is Lehman college, which I hear is highly competitive. Any advice? Any other colleges to look at? I'm not from here, and I'd love some help. I just applied to BMCC to do my pre-requisites, but since I applied as a non-degree seeking student, they won't let me see an advisor (which is a bunch of ********, since I'm giving them my money). I have no idea what to do right now and I'm to the point of crying. This sucks.
  2. So... I was 100% convinced that I should do an ABSN because it could be faster, but then I started looking into ADN programs. I saw that they about 1.5 years to complete, but since I have already taken a lot of the prerequisites for an ABSN (like A&P, chem, statistics, and developmental psych, which are also classes that are part of an ADN program), then it would probably only take me half the time to complete, or probably even less (as long as they didn't make me retake the classes, which would be weird...). Therefore, I could become a nurse sooner, it would be much cheaper, and then I could work on doing an RN-BSN a little while later and, hopefully, eventually BSN - FNP. Can anyone give me advice? What would you do? I really am not sure.
  3. Yeah that's what I was afraid of, and I'm sure you're probably right about that. Well... I'll find out on Monday for sure! Ugh.
  4. I just found out that I'm not able to apply to NC A&T's program because I failed a stats class like 7 years ago. I'm crushed. That was my #1 choice. Ugh, so now I'm looking at other options. NC does not have much to choose from, so now I'm kind of freaking out. I graduated from my university with a 3.65 GPA (however, taking into account the two community college I attended, I only have a 3.3 cumulative GPA. That doesn't include my prerequisites that I'm currently taking, though). I am also currently working as a CNA. Do you think I should have a good chance of getting in? I have no backup plan as of now.

    Is WSSU's ABSN program very competitive?

    Thanks so much for your help! What do you think made your application stand out? Why do you think you were chosen over other people with better GPAs?
  6. I'm wondering... If I work for two years or so with an ADN, then do an RN-BSN program and then immediately start an FNP program? Or do I have to also work for 2 years with a BSN? Just asking because I know most FNP programs require two years of experience.
  7. Yes, sorry, the way I wrote it was convoluted. But yes, that's what I was asking. So as long as I work for two years with an ADN, then do the RN-BSN, then I can go straight into the BSN-FNP program! Awesome, thanks!

    WSSU ABSN spring 2018

    Thanks! That makes me feel better since our GPAs are similar and I also have a 4.0 in prereqs so far from my community college. I'm so nervous about this!

    WSSU ABSN spring 2018

    Hi Devin! I'm going to be apply for the 2019 cohort, but I'm curious what your GPA was when you applied? What about other people you know? I only have a 3.4 cumulative (not including prereqs). I attended one 4 year school and two different community colleges, but I graduated my university with a 3.62. I so far have all A's in prereqs. Do you think I have a good shot of getting accepted? I also work as a CNA.... I'm freaking out about it!

    Actually, I calculated my cumulative GPA wrong. I just did it right, and my cumulative GPA is higher than I though! 3.42 (not including my prerequisites which I have A's in so far). That's not bad, right?

    WSSU ABSN spring 2018

    Hey Milly, I am going to be applying to WSSU's ABSN next year, and I was wondering if you got accepted? My GPA is similar to yours which is why I'm wondering!
  12. I'm currently living in NYC, and I absolutely hate it here. My husband and I want to leave ASAP. I'm currently doing my pre-reqs at the community college because I was thinking of transferring to a school here, but I really don't want to anymore. I read a bit about Louisiana College, which looks like a good school and it looks like a good price. The only thing is is that it has more pre-reqs than I really wanted to do.... Also, if you're wondering why I don't just stay here and go to a public school since it would be cheaper: the public schools here in NYC are SUPER competitive (because they're cheap and there's free tuition here now), and they require a ton of pre-reqs so I wasn't even going to apply. So I will most likely go the private route. My undergrad GPA is a 3.65, and my current GPA for pre-reqs is a 4.0. Please help! My neighbor punched me in the chest today; I HAVE to get out of this terrible city!!!

    NC A&T ABSN 2018

    Have you found out if you got accepted? What was your GPA? I'm going to be applying in April! I have a 3.65 GPA and all A's in prereqs so far...do you think I have a good shot of getting in?

    WSSU ABSN spring 2018

    Hey! I haven't applied for 2018, but I'm applying for next year and I am just wondering what everyone's GPA's were? I graduated from my university with a 3.65, but including the community college I went to, my cumulative GPA is a 3.3.... So far have all A's in the prereqs though. I'm nervous about getting in!
  15. I currently live in NYC but my husband and I want to move there because we hate this city and want to live somewhere calmer. I graduated with a 3.65 GPA, and so far I have A's in my prereqs. I haven't taken the TEAS yet though. I've also been working as a CNA for a couple months. If I do well on the TEAS, should I have a decent shot of getting accepted?

    Cheap ABSN programs in the US?

    I would love to go to Stony Brook, but I just kind of thought I wouldn't be able to get it. Plus I'm not sure if my husband would be able to find work out there. I feel like my GPA isn't good enough for Stony Brook's ABSN. :/
  18. Thanks for your replies! Were you able to find a job pretty quickly once you graduated?
  19. I would be applying for the ABSN. My top school would be SUNY Downstate since it's only a 10 minute walk from me, and it's super cheap, but if I'm being realistic here, I doubt I'll get accepted. I graduated from my university with a 3.65 GPA, but I also attended 2 community colleges, and if you take those into account, then I really have a 3.32 GPA. So I'm worried that won't be good enough to get into CMSV. I will be taking my pre-reqs this year and will hopefully get all A's though, and I'm also going to be working as a CNA, so I hope that helps me! Any thoughts? Advice?
  20. Thanks! Do you mind telling me what your stats were like? GPA and experience? So are you now attending CMSV? How do you like it?

    Dual Degree Molloy Fall 2017

    Hi! I am interested in the Molloy program. Once you graduate, are you considered an NP or an RN with a Master's?
  22. Thanks for your reply!! I was just reading about the Molloy Dual Degree program. That sounds interesting. Once you graduate, what will you be? Is it a nurse with a Master's? Or a NP? How long is that program? I have now come to terms with the fact that I will most likely be going to private school. Oh well!
  23. Hi! I'm currently freaking out about applying for college. I graduated with a 3.65 GPA from my last school and will be going to BMCC to do my pre-requisites. My grandpa thankfully paid my tuition before so I never had to even think about taking out loans. But now things are different. I'm married, and my mother (it's her father) doesn't think I should be asking my grandpa for money anymore. (She sucks!!!) So I'm looking into the cheapest options. I see that the public schools are all super competitive, but I'll still apply anyway (except to Hunter. I can't apply there since I failed Stats a few years ago). So my options seem to be: College of Mount Saint Vincent, Phillips school of Nursing, College of New Rochelle, Concordia, Monroe, Molloy, and Adelphi. I don't even plan on looking at NYU or Columbia since they're both outrageously expensive. If you had to rate those schools, which one would be best? Worst? Which one is cheapest? It's hard finding costs for some of them! A lot of them will say $13,000 (or something like that) per term, but how many terms are there???? So scared/frustrated/stressed out right now!!!
