    Kent State ABSN - Fall 2019

    I'm not sure, but I think 3.7-3.8 for the weekend and UH cohorts, and maybe a little lower for the traditional accelerated during the week. Maybe that's because the traditional takes a lot students. Our class was 16 students, I think there was over 150 applicants.

    4.0, and my previous bachelor degree was in maternal child health.

    Kent State ABSN - Fall 2019

    The program is very competitive to get in! Do the best you can to do well in your prereqs and keep your GPA high.

    Kent State ABSN - Fall 2019

    I worked part time the entire program. The dates of clinicals you may have a little in advance, but the location sometimes we didn't find out until the day before the semester started. With the more specialty classes like OB and psych we knew longer in advance.

    Kent State ABSN - Fall 2019

    I graduated from the UH ABSN cohort with Kent last year. When I started I was working and had 2, 4, and 6 year old little boys. It was a challange but honestly it wasn't too bad. I also got a 4.0, so it is definitely doable.

    Cleveland Clinic strength test

    I just did this a few weeks ago and am working in the NICU at main campus. The strength test 'amount' is detmined by your body weight and then it is done on an isokinetic machine using resistance. It is really nerve wracking not have a set amount to lift or something like that, but you will be fine!

    Cleveland State vs Kent State Accelerated BSN

    I recently graduated from Kent's ABSN program. GPA was a big factor for sure. There were over 150 applicants to my cohort, and 16 were accepted. It is very competitive.

    Consensus about WGU MSN grads??

    Hello! I just graduated with my BSN am looking to go for my MSN is education. WGU is appealing for many reasons. I am wanting to know though from the employer's perspective, how is WGU regarded? Would it be a hindrance to being hired to have a degree from WGU? I don't know anyone who has attended WGU, and when I asked my faculty their opinion, including our asst. dean, they hadn't even heard of it but seemed leery based on the description of the program and how it is set up. I'd hate to be passed over for a job just based on where I got my degree. I hope I am making sense! Any input is appreciated!

    About applying to Tri-C...

    I dont know about Tri-C, but I am in the accelerated BSN program at Kent. I dont qualify for financial aid either, but I do get federal loans by filling out the FAFSA. I figure in one year the degree will pay for itself. I think the application deadline is coming up for Kent's accelerated Nights and Weekends Cohort, maybe check it out?

    Cool! Will you be staying in the area once the program is over?

    Can the pants be any style? Cargo, fit, etc?

    Kent ABSN UH-Cohort 2015

    JavaRX- did you buy the uniforms through Life Uniforms? Or is there a cheaper place? At orientation Life Uniforms will be there, and I was wondering if I should get fitted, take the brand/style numbers and buy elsewhere. $140 for a uniform seems steep.

    Kent ABSN UH-Cohort 2015

    Thanks! I think the general KSU ones might still be open, though Im not sure! Hopefully we both find some funding! My first BS has me drowning too still.

    Kent ABSN UH-Cohort 2015

    Yup! July 7th! The price is definitely intimidating. I applied for all the KSU nursing scholarships I could for this academic year (application period closed for those May 1st, which I think is stupid because we dont even know if we are accepted at that point) so Im really hoping I get some of those, I also applied for general KSU scholarships too, and have loans that I got through FAFSA. The hospital I work at also provides 2-3k for getting your BSN so I'll apply for that next spring. Our acceptance was too late to apply this year.
