  1. It used to be irrelevant. But with new grad jobs being so scarce, does it make a difference now or is an RN still an RN?

    Best ADN program in San Diego?

    Thanks, I am consindering the CSUSM accelerated program. Any info would be helpful...here or PM is fine. But mostly, do you like it there and how are the instructors? Is it true that the accelerated program is only in Temecula now? If so, are they doing clinicals in Temecula too? What about the generic program, where do you guys do clinical?

    Best ADN program in San Diego?

    Ooh I totally forgot about this thread. Your idea about BSN sounds better by the minute. Why sit on a waitlist for 2-3 years when I can finish a BSN in the same amount of time, especially when I have so little info about the ADN programs. Any advice on which BSN program to attend? I already have a bachelor, so SDSU is not an option because they aren't taking 2nd bachelor students right now. PLN looks good but I would prefer not to take out a huge student loan.
  6. I am new here, and I did my pre-reqs outside of San Diego County, so I am out of the loop as far as knowing the reputations of the different programs in SD. Where do I go to get the best instruction?

    community college "lottery"?

    yeah, as far as i know, the san diego area community colleges don't have lotteries. if i'm wrong, please correct me and tell me where. i would like to test my luck!
  9. good stuff to think about here. thanks.
  10. Is this a bad idea? A nurse I know suggested it might be. My impression is there are a lot of details and paperwork in nursing school, and ABSN programs are like a year-long cram session. Conceptually it seems like an ineffective way to learn nursing especially if you have little medical background to build on but I dunno. I'm espeically curious to know what ABSN students/grads who had no experience going in think about this matter.

    If you get sick in nursing school you're out?

    I was considering a very expensive ($50K) private ADN program. They only allow 2 absences in the entire program before they kick you out.

    need info on San Diego KAPLAN

    Please do. The 50k for an associates is insane, but if their grads are adequately trained and can get jobs, it's an option that can get someone into the profession without having to waitlist for 3 years. Also, that person is in and out in under 2 years, compared to 2.5 years for a community college program. Of course, it's all meaningless if hospitals won't hire them. To the OP: I don't have my paperwork in front of me, and it's been a while since I've talked with Kaplan, but I want to say the work experience has to be 6 months, verified by letter from employer. You'll also need acceptable scores on teh TEAS and Wonderlic tests, 2 letters of reccomendation, HS transcripts even if you have a college degree, urine test, and background check. The program is just under 24 months. I think it's 20, but don't quote me on that.

    need info on San Diego KAPLAN

    Who told you this? I'm wondering because I have been considering Kaplan.

    san diego kaplan

    Good luck on your application. Yeah, took the TEAS, took the Wonderlic, and filled out all that paperwork. Haven't started gathering anything yet however because some things would be a waste if I decide to not attend: HS transcripts, background chk, and physical exam, for example. I suppose it couldn't hurt to have college transcripts and letters of reccomendation on hand in case I apply elsewhere though. I think I'll start on that... Have you spoken to financial aid yet? I haven't. Maybe that's something you do once you've submitted your package?

    Nope, haven't made up my mind yet. I hope I can make up my mind before the application due date coming up. I'm also considering September. Btw, who doesn't look at them as good? I know people think it's a waste because the credits don't transfer to most schools if you pursue a BSN. But I don't care about that at all. I'm ony concerned if the people who make hiring decisions hold anything against Kaplan grads.
