    Pima CC summers?

    Thank you! I just wanted to know when I would graduate (though I won't start for at least a year) - it makes a semester difference :)

    Pima CC summers?

    For the associates of nursing at Pima Community College, does the program run through the summers? Do you have that option? For some reason, I thought it was just a fall-spring-fall-spring or a spring-fall-spring-fall program. But I wasn't sure if...

    Linguistics and Nursing

    Just language or linguistics or sociolinguistics! :) Anything. Thanks for the help. I will search those terms.

    Dnp?

    Thank you! That is good to hear. I wasn't sure if there were benefits to doing the BSN-DNP versus BSN-MSN-DNP if DNP is the goal.

    Oncology or Orthopedic OR?

    Thanks so much for sharing! I'm not done with nursing school yet, but I can't wait! All of the ortho nurses I have met have been really helpful and excited about letting me shadow them. I can't wait to have a job that's fun because it's doing what...

    Oncology or Orthopedic OR?

    How did you get started in ortho OR? Did you do ortho med-surg first or say that you wanted to work with OR? Or can you do ortho OR as a new grad? Any info would be helpful. Thanks!

    Yeah, sorry! I don't care about prestige either - I think I really meant, how competitive is admissions? :) Are you applying for next summer?

    Chinook, here's about Tucson... Okay, about Tucson. It's a great place for young children. There are some nice places to live, especially in Northwest Tucson and even near campus. The further south you go, the more people see it as being an...

    University of Arizona Accelerated BSN

    I was looking at doing Georgia State's accelerated program, but I honestly believe that there are benefits of studying at a nursing school that has a research hospital adjoined to it (usually a medical school too). I know that some nursing schools a...

    Hi Chinook! Instead of waiting to find the time to write a super lengthy message, I will post about one question you had. The interview at UA is a group panel interview - a few people interview a few applicants at a time. That is about it for the i...

    Oncology or Orthopedic OR?

    Thank you so much for sharing! It seems like I've been interested in orthopedics since I was in middle school, and reading the books about orthopedic surgery (like Hot Lights, Cold Steel) just encourages me even more! I'm glad you love your job - i...

    How long did it take you to finish up your pre-reqs?

    I'm taking my classes at Georgia Perimeter (Decatur). It's been great!

    Understanding the process and my options in GA

    If you want to take your classes online, I would try Rio Salado College. It's based in Arizona, but you can take Microbiology, Anatomy, Chemistry, and such all online. You just have to take the midterm and final at a proctor site of your choosing. ...

    Chances on getting in????

    It's never too late to get a BSN! Just take it a chunk at a time! Know your limits. The Anatomy and Physiology classes and the Chemistry classes can be hard, so just be careful and know whether you can take more than 1 science at a time. I had a ...
