    Jacksonville University MSN roll call

    I am doing the Clinical Nurse Educator track. I recently moved to Fl from Baltimore for a nursing position in St Petersburg. Also teaching clinicals at an area college.

    Jacksonville University MSN roll call

    Thank you so much for your input. I am very eager to begin! I have been going back and forth between starting in Jan vs starting in March. But personally March gives me more time to get my life in order. I am also a wreck thinking of these 8 week classes! If you can remember, what was your 1st semester like?

    Jacksonville University MSN roll call

    I know this is an old post. But I am due to begin at JU for my MSN in March 2016. How has the program been for those of you that have attended? It's really hard to find any current info/reviews of the program.

    Relocating to Florida

    Hello, all I will be relocating to Florida for a job in St. Petersburg. My husband will be working in Sarasota, so we are trying to find a place that is between the two cities, so our commutes aren't too crazy. We have a 2yo daughter, so we would like to be near good schools. Any Floridians have any apartment searching advice? Such as good neighborhoods, where to steer clear of, etc. Thanks in advance.

    Jacksonville U MSN

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone out there is currently enrolled OR has graduated from the JU MSN program. I am thinking of applying for the Clinical Nurse Educator (CNE) track, but I am worried about the 8 week courses. I completed my LPN-BS online through Indiana State which was pretty awesome, and there classes were traditional 15 week courses. Any advice anyone can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Indiana State University LPN-BSN 2012

    I had planned on taking 2 classes in the fall, but my fiance and I are expecting our first child in February and I don't want to be overwhelmed. So I may stick to just taking the Transitions course. I heard both classes can be brutal, so I'll pace myself and see what their nursing classes are like before I double up. I'm taking two classes over the summer (Pathophysiology and Bio-Ethics), and they are both brutal in their own right.

    Maryland or DMV Nurses Enrolled at ISU

    Yes, I'm taking them through ISU. Hopefully, I'll be able to do my clinicals on one of the units at my job. If not, I'm gonna try for NIH.

    Maryland or DMV Nurses Enrolled at ISU

    Hi, Veronica I also plan to start in the fall. I am taking summer courses now, Patho, Eng 305, and Ethics n Social Responsibility. Are you enrolled in any, or did you have to take any additional courses?

    Bio 412-Pathophysiology

    No, i have an AA in General Studies so most things I didnt need to take. Just patho, an ethics and social responisibility course and eng 305.

    Bio 412-Pathophysiology

    Yes, I am. Hopefully, I'll start in the fall which is why I'm taking these courses over the summer so that I will only have to focus on Nursing courses.

    No need for TCN expensive study guides

    ALso, pendingBSN Once you get your ISU Student ID, you will be able to go to the blackboard site and print out the study guides.

    No need for TCN expensive study guides

    i understand what you mean. i have noticed that a lot of isu's paperwork isn't updated as much as it should be. for example, the syllabus to study for challenge exams is dated 2005, and the classes that i've registered for over the summer have a date of fall '11. when i began to call isu directly, my path went a lot smoother than when i thought i had to deal with tcn. i urge people to go through the isu-nursing page with a fine tooth comb, and find out exactly who you need to speak with for your needs, as every person handles a different aspect of the program. that way, you should be guaranteed the most up to date information. i can say that when i spoke with carol layton about the challenge exams she did notify me that tcn was a publishing company and i did not need them. i also urge people to make sure they are going to the direct website for indiana state university, not just googling 'isu nursing' or 'indiana state lpn-bsn' and clicking on the first link, which i believe takes you to tcn or a site that will direct you there, not the school's website. the main website is indiana state university : nursing *i'm off my soap box* :)

    Thanks for clearing this up for a bunch of people. Without your advice the first time, I would have been $2500 in debt to TCN.
