    Has anyone from Illinois received notification? This is killing me.

    Do they eventually notify people who didn't receive it?

    Where to Take Prerequisites for ABSN

    I really don't think it matters where you take your pre-req classes as long as you do well in them. I got accepted to an ABSN program and I took my pre reqs at a community college.

    I did hear nursing changes you, but I didn't think it would be such an eye-catching change!

    The age old question: ADN or BSN?

    Yeah Tammy, I am sure it must be tough when you are not recognized for your hard work and dedication. Was it difficult for you to obtain a job with an ADN? Do you know if it's impossible to get a job in home care, long term care or assisted living facilities as well as new grad with an ADN? Or is it just hard to get into a hospital? Also, you said from your experience this is what you've encountered. Is that within Chicago or somewhere in IL? I've also heard that it depends where you are located.

    Truman College? (chicago)

    I've taken some of my pre reqs for nursing and have to admit that their administration is the worst!! Lazy, incompetent and overall no help at all!! Some of the instructors I had were awesome (Driver and Kogan) but others were TERRIBLE! Stay away from Siddiqi if you are actually interested in learning A&P, if you want an easy A, take him, but you will learn nothing. I'm sorry, he is a sweet man but that sweet man should NOT be teaching. Registration is a huge headache, as I assume it is with all the city colleges. You have to be literally on them if you want something done. Be stern and persistent if you need help and want an answer. I got into their nursing program but decided to go elsewhere. Overall, not a great experience at Truman but you get what you pay for and it's okay for fulfilling pre-reqs and the like.

    loyola absn fall 2012

    Welcome and congrats on getting in! And yes, any advice would be appreciated. I had a question for everyone who is going into the program this fall or who is already in it, do you plan on working? I know they don't recommend it and I'm sure working full-time is out of the question, but do you guys think part-time is possible?
