    Indiana Scholarship for Nurses

    Yes, but you can't deny that there are tons of people who abuse the system. There are people who genuinely need it, but there are just as many people who are lazy and don't want to work. I know several of them personally.

    Anyone heard about the Greencastle IvyTech Program?

    I confirmed with a contact at the school in GC that they will be offering the ASN starting for August 2007.

    Ohhh, your IvyTech Schedule sounds like it might work out for me too. How did you specify the night program? I couldn't even find the course listings when I was looking on IvyTech's site last night. Is there a separate night program for the people who work during the day?
  4. A friend of mine told me that Greencastle IvyTech is going to start offering the ASN program. Can anyone confirm that?

    Well, I went through the curriculum for the ASN degree at IvyTech. I will only have to take 38 of the 69-71 credit hours if IvyTech does transfer credits correctly. My only concern is that they will not offer enough classes at night. Anyone have any experience with working full time and going to IvyTech?

    Anyone take the Anatomy Class at IUPUI instead of Ivy Tech?

    Hey, does anyone know if this counts for both pre-req Anatomy/Physio classes at Ivy Tech? A fellow student in my Micro class said that IvyTech Indy told him that he would only have to take Anatomy at IUPUI and it would count for both. EDIT: Duh, I just re-read your original post! Nevermind! hahaha!

    So where are you going to school? Is it in the Indianapolis area?

    That would be cool! You'll have to PM me if we're in the same class!

    LPN's is this true?

    An LPN friend of mine started at $18/hr in a nursing home in central Indiana.

    Need some program advice...

    i am trying to decide which program to work towards and i know you guys know the indiana nursing programs very well. right now i am enrolled at iupui to take micro, anatomy, and physiology. here's my info: i went to butler for 1.5 years after hs and majored in bio. - i took psychology. i got an a. - i also took advanced chem (2 semesters in 1) and got an a- - tested out of english i due to ap scores. took english ii and got an a. i then transferred to purdue where i got my bs in mechanical engineering technology. - i had a 3.5 when i graduated. - took second semester chem since they wouldn't transfer all of my advanced chem. got a b because i never went to class. - got a c in calc i and a b in calc ii. - got an a in speech and an a in group comm (advanced speech) thought i wanted to go to med school, so i started in at iupui to take pre-reqs. obviously, i changed my mind. - got an a-/a in organic i lecture/lab - in micro right now and anticipate an a or a-. - enrolled in anatomy in the spring. worked 2 years in industry as a quality engineer and now an environmental, health, and safety engineer with responsibility for 1100 people in a factory. i manage the emergency response team in addition to that. i will probably be taking an emt class in the spring. so, my delimma is this... should i take forever to finish up a bsn at iupui because i can't quit work, or do i take a little less than forever doing an asn at ivy tech at night? i would really like to be working as a nurse (rn) as soon as possible. i do want to continue on to get an msn probably at a later time. any of you ivy tech people... how hard is it to do the asn program at night and while working full time? is it possible? my boss knows about my desire to go to nursing school and she said that she could be flexible with my schedule if we pre-arranged it. i'm just worried about finishing up the clinical stuff. i live pretty much across the field from hendricks regional in danville, so that would make it easy if i did my clinicals there. i'm rambling. anyways, anyone have any advice for me? i need some help!

    I'm taking Anatomy this coming Spring at IUPUI. I'm in the Sunday class since I work full time. I don't know how hard it is, though! Sorry! :)

    Any IUPUI Nursing Students?

    I'm in pre-nursing at IUPUI. I have a bachelor's degree in engineering from Purdue and I'm going to school at night while I continue working. I want to do the accelerated BSN, but I can't quit work to go full time. Has anyone done the BSN program while working? I'm just worried that I won't be able to finish without quitting my job. I'm willing to do my clinical stuff at night or on the weekends. Anyone have any advice for me? I'm new to nursing programs and the whole process. Thanks!
