    UCF Traditional and Accelerated BSN-2014

    Should take about 2-3 weeks give or take. I received my acceptance email and then I received another email "TERM YR(FA12) RN to BSN Admission Decision" two weeks after. IF you follow the directions on the email correctly, it shouldn't take long. Best to sign up for orientation as soon as possible because seats fill up fast and so does the classes.

    the early orientation the better, you may get first dibs on classes. =)

    UTA online FNP ! Yay!

    I was looking into this program and barry university (orlando campus). if the price tag is what it is, I may have to reconsider the option because one of my coworkers informed me that it is online classes, but she would have to fly out there to do the skills test and exams. something along that line.

    Anybody go to Keiser?

    I did not wait 2 years. It's just that it was a long wait list and in addition to the waiting list, I was retaking 3 of the science courses in order to boost up my GPA in order to continue my education which I am applying for AS to BSN program. It varies on each Keiser campus. Like I said, I was lucky enough to by pass a whole class in order to start 8 months earlier than plan. Reason, how I got in so quickly? Well I attended a university before Keiser and got all my pre-reqs done and then I was able to pay my tuition. It all depends on that too, if you can pay for it and finish ALL the classes to have first dibs. The advisor will call you and let you know if there is a seat opening and ask if you want to accept or decline. I'm just telling how I was able to start the program. Just stating a fact.

    Anybody go to Keiser?

    It all comes down to you when it comes to taking the class. Would you like to bite the bullet and get the class done early and out of the way to be on the waiting list quickly or wait another semester to get into the program? In my case, I bit the bullet and took the class because even though it was fall of ..... I was not going to start until May two years after that. So I just took the class to get it done and start working to save up some money in order to get ready for the classes. Lo and behold I was luckily enough to by pass a whole Jan class and was able to start the following fall. So I just had to wait out a year and took about 4 classes in between to finish pre-reqs. Not too bad since I was able to retake some courses in order to keep my GPA up. It's your decision. Take it or wait it out. Depends on how fast you want to get done with nursing school. I think in the advisor case is that it may be cheaper in the long run, because each day not working as a nurse is about (not sure) clinical 8 hours is about 150 bucks. So in his weird way of telling you is that it will be cheaper to finish school as quickly as possible and graduate to jumpstart on your career. But I will repeat. ALL COMES DOWN TO YOU.

    Anybody go to Keiser?

    16 months just for the nursing core classes. Tuition changes every year. Depends on the location and the availability of the clinical instructors, we drove as far as Orlando for clinical sites.

    Anybody go to Keiser?

    I took the class on campus, do not be overwhelmed, everything will fall into place. I do not know about the TEAS test, but I know it is not free. I do not know the application fee. It's been like 4 years since I last register at Keiser.

    Anybody go to Keiser?

    yes you are correct. nursing program starts 08/27/12 A, B, C, D, is just a name to separate each month.

    Anybody go to Keiser?

    usually the beginning of each month. then you will have a month break and then the nursing classes starts.

    Anybody go to Keiser?

    It depends on how badly you want to start nursing school. Keiser classes are one month each so you will have your pre-reqs completed before you enter nursing school. it is a pricey school and class, but if you want to start school early and get out quickly keiser is the way to go. but taking classes at CC is a semester so you will be finish that class in 4 months. I do not know if TEAS are required before enrollment, you are going to have to ask the admissions counselor.

    That's true, nursing courses are somewhat transferable among certain nursing schools. But I cannot afford to continue my education at Keiser b/c I am now in state tuition and I rather go to a school that is a bit cheaper since I am paying for it. Yes, I finished almost all, but one of my general education classes and they are transferable to other schools since I have spoke with one of the advisers when I attended the nursing convention in Orlando back in April 2010. Yes I did attend the Melbourne campus. The course load was not bad, CONSIDERING I am married, not a mom yet, tech savvy, VERY flexible with schedules, professors were AWESOME with each of their teaching styles, resources were scarce especially the ones in the library b/c there are 24 students going for the same book, so I look for resources online and it's a mine online. =)

    Anybody go to Keiser?

    Yes it was difficult to land a job b/c of the number of graduates per cycle (3 cycles a year) with UCF, BCC, and Keiser each cycle. It took me about 3-4 months to find a job. But total of 6 months to find a permanent job. I am applying for my BSN program as we speak and will be checking in with the adviser of the schools via email and telephone to see what is transferable and what are not. I have to remind you that I did have 3 years of classes from another university before I attend Keiser, so those classes will replace what is needed for the pre-reqs for BSN. I only need 10 classes which is about 30 credits to receive my BSN. Looking for job was the job in itself. I learn how to utilize my networks, using my resources in Brevard County (i.e. Brevard Work Force), volunteerism etc.. And it was referral from a nurse I met working as a flu shot clinic that help me land a job.

    If anyone needs help with your classes I can assist you with finding resources online for most of the classes at keiser. I am the IT go to person when I was at keiser.

    Do your best and study smart, I graduated keiser in 2010 and it was doable. I'm bilingual and it was challenging, but that extra language will come in handy when it comes to finding a job.
