Hey there! They don't supply the public with specific acceptance rates for the ABSN program, but during an admitted students night they estimated around 60-65%. Apparently this year was very competitive. IF they are to be believed, this was one of the most competitive years, esp. for Spring. Fall is historically more competitive.
My cohort is about 150 people split into two sections of about 75. I tend to see a lot of the same people, but sometimes the cohorts crossover in class. It depends on your schedule. I, for example, have class everyday starting at 7am or 8am. Some students have a day off and afternoon clinical/simulations. I don't tend to see the afternoon folks and they all seem to be lumped together. You have no control over your schedule, FYI.
I don't, that's true. But ya'll love to talk about snowflakes all the time and seem to me like kind of hateful towards those who may have additional needs. Its consistent here and a bit old.
Its always those complaining who make the 'you should've used a trigger warning" joke. Ya'll ain't funny and ya'll kind of sensitive.
Spoken like a bunch of folks who don't really seem to understand trauma.
I understand your being upset and mystified, but when it does no harm to say a single sentence, why complain about it? It's for those who truly struggle, not for you who sits there and rolls your eyes.
I don't know many who can afford this. It is honestly pretty racist, xenophobic AND classist to create systems with steep entry fees. I'm not saying that is exactly what is happening, but systems like these are built with a very specific person in mind. I'll be a graduating nurse very soon who has everything going for me, and this fee would keep me out of CA.
I don't understand why you think this is a form of job protection; this is a massive filter and only those who have the cash can pay the entry fee.
