    Columbia SON MDE 2019

    And no time to eat or sleep too. That's the price for stuff 74 credits in a one year program instead of two.
  2. Hi, I'm curious where did you get the stats?

    Duke ABSN Fall 2019

    Hi, I will be in town on Wednesday too. I’d love to see the Duke Lemur Center too. Which tour option did you pick?

    Duke ABSN Fall 2019

    One of the good ways to find out if it’s what you want to pursue is by visiting the school on Visiting Day and see if the quality of their program justifies its high cost.

    Duke ABSN Fall 2019

    Just got an email today from Duke on my Fin Aid package.
  7. You will hear back after April 1st. That’s the deadline for put down deposit for accepted students. Then they’d move on to the waitlisted.
  8. Yes, I got accepted to Columbia, JHU and DUSON. For me, I am not into gaining study abroad opportunities since I have done it before and I travel often. I also do not intend to learn medical Spanish since I already speak two more languages other than English. Both Columbia and JHU are more expensive than DUSON for their comparable programs (I don't mind whether it's a MSN or ABSN). And they are more than double the tuition for the ABSN program at OHSU! JHU adds another year of studies which is also something to consider. On the other hand, although Columbia a one-year program, its intensity is insane! I definitely don't think I can pursue much other things while I am in the program even being in a great city, plus I prefer a more balanced school life. So I am most likely going to choose DUSON and it's a good well-rounded university overall. For you, I think it really depends what your priorities are. Are you only focusing on nursing or want a more balanced school life? How much are you willing to pay or borrow loans? The higher the costs, the bigger the risks (Columbia is the most risky out of the 3). How much does the location matter to you? How intense can you handle the amount of course load? My ranking of intensities (from lowest to highest): OHSU --> DUSON --> JHU --> Columbia. What are your goals for nursing? For the clinical rotations at OHSU, I suggest you ask the current students and see how/where do they go and their thoughts about the quality of the program. Hope it helps.
  9. For OHSU, it’s a much smaller program than the other ones. It depends on if you are in state or out of state. Plus other factors you might consider normally like location, job perspective, etc.
  10. Wow, good for you with these good choices! Do you have DUSON to choose from too?

    Vaccination for clinical

    It’s a good idea that you should stay away from a hospital setting if you don’t want to get vaccinated so that we won’t have another high-risk ‘patient’ we need to take care of. Oh and btw, you might still get tetanus which have been extinct for 30 years but coming back again because people don’t let their kids vaccinate. Read:

    Yes, the score is not the only indicator of the quality of a program. But if it asks for a top price, I’d expect a top score. And right now the passing rate is below 90%. That’s one prominent indicator of the quality of the program overall.

    Thank you for the insight and details. I appreciate your input.
