I graduated from USA's nursing program in 2006 and I started in the summer it was difficult. My brother is starting this summer and after looking at his schedule you all are very lucky you should have a pretty easy summer for the most part. Health assessment is a little tough and pharm can be difficult at times. If you all have any questions though feel free to ask me. All in all nursing school wasn't that bad of an experience I made many friends and got a job working for usa medical center in the ICU.
Depends on were you go and if it is a university or private school. Im going to a private school and its going to cost me almost 60,000 not including cost of living. I have heard of some university costing under 30,000 though.
I can tell you I think you will do fine. I just got accepted to a CRNA program with a 3.09 GPA overall. I did get my CCRN CMC and CSC certifications. I believe these helped me out tremendously by increasing my knowledge but more importantly showing my motivation for higher learning. I also had 2 years experience before applying as well.
