Hi guys sorry for the delay I was working... Rena, I didn’t get in with my GPA in fact I’m still on the waitlist and last I spoke with the guy I’m sort of in limbo (and that was the end of July before I found out about LIU). Let me explain how sjc does their admission to nursing better so maybe you can understand. Like I said I was put on the waitlist even with my gpa how they do it is obviously ranking order but since I didn’t have chemistry, religion and I’m forgetting the last class they wanted (because it wasn’t required at Nassau) I qualified for the sophomore class and not the junior class. The sophomore class only had 6 seats open for the fall, so basically each grade has a certain amount of seats and the people that had better gpa’s got letters and accepted their seats into their program. Hopefully that helps. Yes sjc is the cheaper of the private schools but once you become a nurse you will be making back your money very quickly considering hospitals in the city starting out pay is 100-110k. I’ve only heard good things about sjc program and like you guys I had wanted to go there considering I had felt they took the time to explain everything to me as opposed to other schools I felt like I was pulling teeth but as the same time LIU offered me the opportunity and nobody else did and I want to become a nurse so to me rejecting them to maybe find out I won’t get accepted anywhere else, well to me that’s just a semester I wasted.
nephoue in response to how long the program is it ultimately depends on how many classes you got done, in your case you might be considered a freshman since you’ll have to retake anatomy 1 and you didn’t take ap2 or micro so you might have a good chance for getting into the spring
