    How to be the best candidate: BSN Navy

    You would think community volunteering would be on my radar but it slipped my mind somehow. Did tons of it during my prerequisite classes, will pick it up again for sure. My GPA is a 3.89 right now, plan on keeping it up that high. Thanks for the info on languages. K. Traylor, future BSN of the USN

    How to be the best candidate: BSN Navy

    I know that good grades are very important, and I plan on keeping my GPA as high as possible considering I do not have any other obligations while I'm in nursing school. My question is, what can I do to make myself a better candidate? I was thinking about learning a foreign language (I took ASL, but I'm thinking more along the lines of Farsi, Italian, German, etc.)... Will that pigeonhole me? What other recommendations do you have for bettering ones self before applying? I'll be done with my BSN in December 2016, and my health officer recruiter said that in October 2016 we can start my packet. I just want to be the best me I can before the Navy shapes me into something even better. Thanks in advance. K. Traylor, future BSN of the USN

    South University- Tampa: BSN 4/15 Cohort

    Hey everyone, long time since I've posted!!! I've been very busy figuring out life. But on the plus side, I'm now in a school where I feel academically challenged as well as happy ❤️ I've been accepted into the BSN program at South U Tampa starting April of this year. Anyone else out there as well?? K. Traylor, future BSN of the USN

    Tampa Area Nursing Schools

    Not sure if you're still looking, but I came into South University as a junior, and I'm now in their BSN program-- not RN-BSN, just BSN. I thought it was a great transition, the school is quite nice, and as someone who has been to several universities trying to find my fit (including SPC and USF and Galen-- which was horrific), I'm so happy I landed here.

    Yeah because I think some BSN-DNP programs are 2-3 years full time.

    itt tech nursing students

    Yep. Dealing with this right now. Transferring with less than a year from an non accredited program into an accredited one, not gonna be done until the end of 2016 (whereas I'd be done in June 2015 if I had listened to other people... AND HAVE MY BSN.... AAAAAND from an accredited school). None of my nursing classes transfer (which I expected) so I'm having to start all over. Already $20k I'm debt. Don't do what I did!!!!!!

    I'm transferring with less than a year until I graduate.... Am I crazy?!

    Wow surprised this hit 6 pgs. Thanks for all of the info ladies and gents. I don't feel so bad about transferring now... it wasn't that I felt bad, it was that I was just questioning everything... should I/ shouldn't I kinda thing.. But after looking at everything, I'm glad I've made the decision. Hope anyone else experiencing this doesn't feel alone!!!

    What do you do when...

    He's saying SAC is national and that CCNE and ACEN is not needed (which is kinda true I guess?). But marking our school as nationally accredited. Only accreditations are SAC, FL BON, COE. 2-year RN program.

    What do you do when...

    Your school is telling people they have national accreditation and they don't?? I know we don't have it, because SAC is only regional accreditation, not national. But when confronted by the president of the campus, he tells me we have national... I asked him which accrediting body gave us our national accreditation.... He says SAC. So frustrated at what I'm hearing around here. This school is desperate. So ready to leave.

    I feel like this took a weird turn. I just wanted to know what people thought about my situation. I know around here BSNs are very desirable (they're firing RNs from the local level 1 trauma hospital) and especially ones from an accredited program. Just wanted to know if you guys would stay or transfer... I've already finished all of the transfer paperwork and am already in the BSN program, I just don't xfer until Oct.
