Just a simple person trying to find meaning on this big blue dot. My ultimate goal is to work in the ICU as a nurse and eventually become a Neuro-Nurse Practitioner/Nurse Anesthesis.

    Bethune-Cookman Nursing program Spring 2013

    No, its not the same as the acceptance letter. Its for clearance to process your application. Most likely a finanial decision will be around late November/ early December. Has anybody received a letter for a background check?

    have you ever seen a female doctor dating a male nurse?

    Most men/women go into medicine for both thr salary and prestige factor and often doctors come from mmore solidly middle to upper middle-class bakgrounds so dating a male nurse is out of the question. Unfortunatley, nursing is still seen by many as a low status job and therfore it lack the prestige of being a doctor.

    Leave you family for nursing??

    Well, I sympathize with the OP because I am in a similiar perdicament. In my area jobs are hard to come by so I choose nursing because of the interest and availability of jobs in my local area. I was in a nursing program but was unprepared for the clinical skills so I failed out of the first semester. The only other choices in my area are expensive private ADN programs that charge 25-45K for a degree. Many of the schools know this area is economically depressed, and that nursing pay liveable wadges in my area, so they charge high amounts of tuition. My recommendation to the OP is to only relocate if its a public schools offering a BSN or ADN/BSN combination. Otherwise its not really worth it. Also to the various people I see posting that there are other areas which pay as well as a ADN/BSN are sadly mistaken. If you live in a right to work state your job choices are severly limited. Health-care is the only stable industry in my area. Plus compare how much the first year of Bachelor Degree earnings to nursing. You will be surprised that nursing outranks most with the exception of engineering or maybe a few IT specialities. Plus any advanced school requires a Bachelors and GRE scores. Getting a BSN allows many to transition to a professional school. To the OP what other choices do you have?

    My transcript and becoming a CRNA

    In my program its not a prerequisite but actually a class you must pass in order to proceed to Nursing I. I passed the test but failed the clinical portion due to my lack of experience of basic nursing skills. Unfortunatley, the small town I live in is crammed with people trying to become nurses so I cannot gain re-entry. I have since gained experience in basic nursing skills by getting my CNA. I have applied to other programs but have not been able to get in. However, I am optimistic about two nursing programs I plan to apply for. In the mean time I was trying to complete CRNA science requirements so I can make a smooth transition once I gain some nursing experience.

    My transcript and becoming a CRNA

    Presently I am in my first stages of my nursing career. After entering a ADN program I made a D in Intro to Nursing but have a 3.75 overall on my science courses. Unfortunatley, this semester I had planned to take Bio2, Intro to Chemistry, and Spanish II but I will have to drop these classes due to financial aid not paying for them. This means there will probably be at least three Ws on my transcript. Would a review board in a CRNA program look down upon my D in Intro to Nursing and the Ws from this semester? I do plan on going back into my nursing program and passing with decent grades.

    Bethune-Cookman Nursing program Spring 2013

    You are right. The 70% I quoted cam from the place where I took the TEAS. I emailed the college personally and the told me I needed t score around the natonal average. I plan on taking my TEAS again and to score witin the 80% range.

    NFCC Madison, FL 2013 hopeful

    I don't think I am going to attend NFCC's nursing program. Right know its too far away for me to commute. I would really like to attend if I had the chance.

    Bethune-Cookman Nursing program Spring 2013

    Well, all of you have convinced me to apply to Bethune-Cookman. This time I will appreciate and try my hardest in the nursing program. You only need a 70 on the TEAS for Bethune. They just want the national average.

    Madison Florida is a small town. Are you a local or coming from some other region in Florida?

    Considered applying. I might still apply but I am unsure about my prospects of going to NFCC.

    Bethune-Cookman Nursing program Spring 2013

    I would like to attend Bethune Cookman's Nursing program but I am scared because the tuition is a little steep. It just seems cheaper to me to attend a ADN program and bridge over to a BSN online. Unless you have a source or scholarship you can rack up 40 K in debt from Bethune Cookman's nursing program.
