    Thanks, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

    UH Manoa GEPN Cohort 2018

    Hi UH 2018 Cohort, I've been watching this forum, hoping I could jump in with some good news, and I finally can. Today, I got an acceptance letter for the AGPCNP program! I'm a mother of two who was a former English as a Second or Foreign Language Teacher, but I've been back in school doing pre-reqs and Nursing Assistant certification for a while.

    Same Undergraduate & Graduate College?

    I'm a former higher education instructor who is going back to school for nursing. My husband is completed his post-doc in engineering, so I feel like I'm might as well throw in my 2 cents since we've spend so much of our professional lives in academia. From my experience, the only people who care about having multiple degrees from the same schools are the extremely snooty-academic types. The same type of people who exclude candidates from non-ivy league schools or top programs in the country, anyway. In the grand scheme of things, I'd say that just about no one else cares if you get your undergraduate and graduate degrees from the same school. Yet, if you have ambitions of getting a tenured teaching position as nursing faculty at at a top-tier institution, it may be best to spread out more.

    University of New Mexico Gallup

    I know that this is a late reply, but I just stumbled across this question in May 2017. I love the organization Partners In Health and one of their only US sites is in Gallup. It's called the COPE project and absolutely worth looking into if anyone is in the Gallup region: COPE Program

    slow and affordable or Accelerated?

    I am a former teacher who is both a stay at home mom and student slowly updating credits. I'm now in the pre-health courses which expire within a couple of years for most programs and need to figure out what plan on. I live where community college/and BSN completions are VERY affordable. There are NO legit accelerated options for me in state, so I would have to take 14 months away to study at CSU Pueblo. I have two little ones, so of course this would be a hard choice. However, in shaving off 3 years of nursing school, I think it might be worth it. Another factor is, of course, finance. I would really like to avoid private student loans and only qualify for $12,500 a year through FAFSA for federal aid. Can childcare be added? I qualify for a number of payback programs (rural, under-served care, faculty, etc) both federally and locally, but as a 30-something I've already been burned by student loans in my previous higher education. I hear paybacks can be very bureaucratic and am not sure if it would be worth it. Final factor that is worth mentioning is that my husband is supportive of any of this. Luckily he has a good salary that could cover our household expenses plus my local tuition. However, there's no way we could swing childcare, housing and the out-of-state/but reciprocated tuition in Colorado. I'm hoping that some one has lived this before? What are your thoughts? Advice? Much appreciated! Thank you so much!

    Georgetown Accelerated BSN

    I didn't go through the program, but had my transcript evaluated from my B.A. I found that they wouldn't take many of my credits and wanted me to take their pre-reqs. At that tuition rate, it added way too much for a second Bachelor's degree. (This isn't unique to Georgetown though, I've found that many schools want you to take their nursing pre-reqs, I've been advised that if a school transfers 2/3 or the credits I would expect to transfer, that I should be happy.)
  7. Does anyone know of hospitals or LTC facilities that hire aspiring RNs and pay for CNA and/or RN training in Delaware?

    Seeking Part-time CNA training

    Good suggestion - I didn't see a whole lot about CNAs in the local section, but I started a new thread there: now I'm covered on both grounds

    Seeking Part-time CNA training in N Del

    I am a part-time student who would like to become CNA certified while I pursue my nursing degree. Are there any New Castle County, Delaware CNAs or other healthcare professionals who can provide any feedback on local evening or weekend CNA training programs? I have contacted the state agency, obtained the list of approved programs, but am really just looking for feedback from someone who is in the field and knows about the programs either firsthand, or by working with people gone through the training. Or...I've found a number of full-time programs with free tuition, but does anyone know of programs that help aspiring CNAs finance 2 months without earning a wage? Thanks for your help!

    Seeking Part-time CNA training

    Thank you, I've actually been to this website and contacted their office. I have the list of approved programs, but am really just looking for feedback from someone who is in the field and knows about the programs either firsthand, or by working with people gone through the training. Thanks again!

    NLN Exam !!!!!!!!

    I am taking the pre-reqs at the Stanton campus this semster (F07) and the Counselor for Prospective Nursing and Current Nursing Students announced in my class that calculators are not allowed. Can anyone suggest a good math review book for the NLN? I have an NLN review book, but I really need more practice on my math skills...it's been so long since I've had a calculator pried out of my hand
