    Anyone accepted or considering the new GCU program in Albuquerque?

    I would appreciate any info! Thank you! Cost? Pre-reqs? What does pre--licensurw mean? You bet! Pre-licensure means that you do not have to be an RN to enter the program. The total cost is $41,250 which is steep, but way cheaper than Pima or Carrington which are at around $50,00 for nationally UNaccredited Associate's programs. I also heard that Associate RN grads are having difficulty finding jobs without experience so a Bachelor's is becoming the requirement to remain competitive with other applicants. They also told me that in addition to financial aid, you are pretty much guaranteed one of their scholarships. The prerequisites are General Bio w/ lab or Bio for Human Sciences, Human Anatomy & Physiology I & II, Microbiology w/lab, Applied Nutrition, Pathophysiology, Intermediate Algebra, Introductory Chemistry, English Composition 101 or 1101, General Psychology, Biomedical Ethics or a course in medical related ethics, and Biomedical Stats or Intro to Stats, Prob and Stats or Applied Stats. They have an equivalency sheet for which courses at UNM, CNM, etc. will fulfill their requirement. The next deadline is September 15th for the January 2012 start. The Fall 2012 deadline is May 15th. You also need to take the Reading and Math sections of the TEAS. Admission is based on TEAS score and only the prereq GPA, not cumulative. I hope this info helps, if you have any other questions feel free to ask =)

    Also, it's a 20-month program

    You can get the info at www.gcu.edu/nmnursing, though it's more of an introductory website so you'd need to contact them for admission info, but I do have most of the FAQ's from the session if anyone needs it.
  4. Hello all! I was beyond excited to hear about Albuquerque's newly aquired Pre-Licensure BSN program with Grand Canyon University and Presbyterian Hospital. I am attending the open house and information session on Tuesday the 12th. Did anyone attend either of the previouse information sessions held or get accepted into the program? I'm going crazy with excitement and would love to know more if anyone has information on it. I've not heard the best things about UNM's program such as poor NCLEX scores and CNM has so many requirements to petition for their program. I have an Associate's in General Education so it makes more sense for me to go directly into a BSN program since a MSN degree is my ultimate goal. Also, Pima and Carrington are out because they charge just as much as GCU would, but for an ADN program that does not have NLNAC accreditation. I was even considering moving to Phoenix just to attend GCU's program so it's the perfect fit. Hopefully this will be the program that I can be a part of. Thanks in advance for any info!

    BSN program w/out RN requirement

    Wow! There are kazillions! Thank you so much for the information. You just saved me a lot of stress. I've been unable to sleep just wondering what the best option would be for both myself and my family. Thank you again!

    BSN program w/out RN requirement

    Hello everyone! I was curious if anyone knew if there are BSN programs available that do not require that you require you to be an RN? I graduate this semester with my Associates degree in General Education as I was once a Business major. I am taking my pre-reqs for Nursing as well this semester. I was just curious because I really want to get my BSN, but don't want to have to spend two years to get my ASN and then another two for my BSN. I'm getting into this late in the game and have two little ones and really want to get done with this as soon as reasonably possible. Thanks for any input!
