  1. Ypsilanti neighborhoods

    there are only 2 areas of Ypsi I could recommend: the cluster of houses immediately south of EMU (one of these clusters is student housing, which you may want to avoid due to noise issues. The other cluster is known as the Normal Park neighborhood an...
  2. I am interested in applying to the University of Toledo's regular BSN program for next fall...the thing is if I apply by the deadline of May 1st I will still have two prerequisites to complete. I can do them during the summer, but would they even con...
  3. UNLV is doubling fees for their nursing progrm only!

    This is very typical. Schools know they can jack tuition rates up for nursing because people will still pay them, hoping to have a "guaranteed job" once they graduate.
  4. What are the chances of new BSN graduates getting a job?

    That's what I thought 2 years ago...now I'm not sure even another 10 years will bring our unemployment rate down. There's no political will whatsoever to solve this situation, and there are massive structural issues with the US economy...we might be ...
  5. Financial Aid Problems

    I was just trying to help
  6. Financial Aid Problems

    I'm fairly certain that they take into account every credit you've ever earned, not just the ones you've earned at one school. This is to prevent people from earning 150% of required credits at one school, and then hopping over to another school to c...
  7. ADN or BSN?

    What an obnoxious post -- and disingenuous, too. We all know that while an ADN is technically a two year degree, MOST schools require a year's worth of prerequisites before admitting you. All the community colleges in my area require over 70 credits ...
  8. Financial Aid Problems

    It's really odd you got denied! You've only taken 32 credits? The rules are that once you've completed 150% of the credits that your program requires, you are no longer eligible for financial aid. In your program, that would be 108 credits...
  9. Jackson CC...info on admissions?

    Contacting the school has been less than productive. Can anyone here share with me how Jackson Community College's point system works?
  10. Online patho and other classes in MI?

    I'm hoping to complete as many non-lab courses as possible online, at community colleges, instead of my university. It's much cheaper and easier. Can anyone recommend community colleges where I WON'T have to drive to campus at all and everything f...
  11. Davenport University

    Can anyone tell me more about the accelerated program at DU? Do you have to complete all the "Foundations of Excellence" and "Foundations of Health Professions" by the time you apply to be accepted into the accelerated track? Or can you apply and the...
  12. Not sure about LPN vs. RN vs. BSN!

    I am young, single and childless, which is why I feel like life wouldn't derail my plans :) especially if I immediately went into an LPN-ADN bridge. Do Pell grants max out? Also, LPN and ADN programs are around 1/2 to 1/3 cost of my school, so tha...
  13. Any advice? Considering LPN as an alternative...

    If you have a bachelor's degree already, you don't qualify for most financial aid for undergraduates, right? In that case direct entry MSN might actually be a better way to go, because you will have access to graduate student loans regardless of cre...
  14. Not sure about LPN vs. RN vs. BSN!

    I'm a college student and it took me awhile to decide on nursing...the thing is I'm a bit late to the major and it would take me 5 years to get a BSN (I'm completing prereqs in my sophomore year, and most BSN programs are 3 years long.) So I was thin...
  15. I emailed OU about their waiting list or lack thereof and got a form email back about how all prospective students must attend an information session. No answer to my question or not. I'm not impressed, not that they actually need my application to f...
