  1. Greetings! I've started the application process for the May 2015 cohort, with the September 15, 2014 deadline in mind. I've completed the academic prerequisites, with the exception of Biochemistry; and I'm enrolled in that for this fall semester. L...
  2. Touro University Nevada

    I'm having difficulty finding information regarding their nursing program or programs. This page references both an Accelerated BSN pathway and a BSN pathway. However, the nursing school pages reference only one 16-month program. The most current ...
  3. Drexel ACE fall 2015

    Good news/bad news: I was removed from the wait-list, unfortunately I wasn't accepted for admission. Good Luck to everyone, I think Drexel ACE is a great program and I wish good luck to all the students starting this fall!
  4. The general rule is you must be a United States (U.S.) citizen to work for the U.S. government. So, if applying to work with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, you must be a U.S. citizen and having permanent residence isn't enough. State and ...
  5. Drexel ACE fall 2015

    If I'm remembering correctly, previous years' threads indicate that a second round of acceptances will come in March. I was reading with an eye toward coming off the waiting list and the situation may be different for others.

    The NSBN website shows the BSN program to be fully approved. The CCNE website shows the BSN program fully accredited until June 30, 2017. If there any recent bad news regarding the program, I haven't been able to find it.
  7. Drexel ACE fall 2015

    About one week ago I received a decision. Unfortunately, I was waitlisted...that's not good! I've completed the prerequisites and thought I had a strong application. Next week I'll email Drexel to see if there is any possibility of getting the dec...
  8. Drexel ACE fall 2015

    And...FWIW, I've completed the prerequisites and haven't yet received a decision.
  9. Drexel ACE fall 2015

    Someone did ask about working. IIRC, the instructor answered that working would be difficult, schedule-wise and that she only remembered one student doing it successfully. My take would be that if I were working, I'd keep it on the DL and so the in...
  10. Drexel ACE fall 2015

    Wednesday's information session went well. Both the admissions and clinical instruction staff seemed professional, open and candid. The prospective students had far more questions than could be answered during the session's time frame. Here are so...
  11. Drexel ACE fall 2015

    On the positive side, they're looking closely at the application materials?
  12. Drexel ACE fall 2015

    $227: Chicago-Philadelphia. I'll be checking out Philadelphia neighborhoods and nearby NJ suburbs.
  13. Drexel ACE fall 2015

    [h=1]I registered, online, this morning. It seems there may be an opportunity for those traveling more than 150 miles to receive a $500 tuition break. The link didn't work for me, however. [/h] Thank you for regist...
  14. Drexel ACE fall 2015

    Yes, I just bought tickets!
  15. Drexel ACE fall 2015

    I agree! Typically air tickets get more expensive within two weeks, so it would great to have a decision by today or maybe tomorrow...LOL...I can dream.
  16. Drexel ACE Spring 2015

    I've decided Drexel ACE is the program for me, so news of a Spring '15 waitlist starting is important to me. My application for that cohort is still incomplete, as my status changed from complete to incomplete. They asked for another transcript abo...
  17. Drexel ACE Spring 2015

    My application has been complete about two weeks and changed to incomplete, today. I needed to update a transcript they previously received. I also had trouble finding a start date, though I have in my mind it is in March. The school calendar show...
  18. Drexel ACE Spring 2015

    I'm also hoping to get into the spring quarter...just waiting on a decision! My prerequisites are complete, I have great grades and great TEAS scores (...of course Drexel doesn't require TEAS.)
  19. UW-Oshkosh Accelerated BSN - May 2015 Cohort

    Thank you for your reply. It would seem, with 30 seats potentially spread among 14 states, that anyone's chance would be scant. A few weeks back I'd decided against applying to the program for this reason. But...then I scored really well on the TE...
  20. Drexel University ACE Program Fall 2011 Start

    the drexel ace website has been updated (since i last looked) and now reads: english (composition): 3 semester credits. english (literature): 3 semester credits.
  21. Drexel University ACE Program Fall 2011 Start

    Congratulations to those accepted! Does anyone have insight to the 6.0 credit English prerequisite? I "tested out" of "101" and took only "102," a 3.0 credit course. I'm not sure if I'll be expected to add another 3.0 credits.
  22. Should I take pre-reqs at CSN or UNLV?

    Another choice could be Nevada State College. CSN has substantially lower tuition than UNLV. I became unemployed in July and wanted to finish my prerequisites as quickly as possible. I was hoping to take AP I, APII and Microbiology at CSN fall sem...
  23. Drexel University ACE Program Fall 2011 Start

    I was happy to at least see this on the Discover Drexel port: Thank you for your application. Your file is currently under review. A decision has not been made regarding your admission status to Drexel University. Yesterday it was still reading so...
  24. Just started my pre-req's!

    Beyondtrouble, I fully understand your situation. I lost my job in July and just wanted to complete microbiology, anatomy and physiology. I wanted to just take those three classes this fall semester, but couldn't accept find a school to accept m...
  25. University of Southern Nevada

    Unfortunately, I need anatomy, physiology and microbiology. I'm hoping for a fall 2011 entry into USN, though I recently applied to Drexel University, Philadelphia, also. I'm a little concerned about the difficulty of me adapting to online learnin...
