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 =)
