    Frustrated New Grad

    You can always go in as a Tech or Nursing Assistant for few months. That way they get to know you, and your work ethic while, you evaluate the environment to see if that is something that interests you. Hiring managers want to have their jobs made easier for them so promoting up from the ranks versus just having a name on the paper. It is a win win for both and I would start by making an appointment with a hospital HR and come prepared to talk about what you bring to the company and that you are willing to be evaluated at a lower position and pay for now. At least you'll get some pay.

    Regis University ABSN May, 2015

    Just wanted to start a thread for people they are waiting admission to Regis University ABSN starting in May, 2015. The decisions are supposed to be made by November 7th, thats only six days away. 188 applicants for 48 spots. I am anxiously waiting to hear.
  5. I am starting this thread to get input from the current and the past students of DSN. I recently moved to Denver and I am looking to apply to nursing schools in the area. For the most part schools offering the second bachelors are the traditional state schools and community colleges. Then there is DSN. While combing the threads on this site and others I found a good mix of "this school is great", or "stay away!" opinions. So I wanted to ask more direct questions. 1. The belief is that if you apply, you get accepted - if that is the case is the school a for profit diploma mill which receives no respect from future employers? If I had a degree from CU or DSN on my resume would local employers discriminate (not openly of course)? 2. How were you received during your clinical coming from DSN? 3. What was the educational experience like? The BSN costs about $50,000 that is a lot for a future nursing salary. Again, I am looking for honest feedback. And I appreciate any and all of the time that you spend answering the question.

    MSU Denver ANO Program

    I just got an email advising me that I was placed in the alternate pool and that they have no further information. Does anyone know how many applications go into alternate pool?

    Denver school of nursing- accelerated January 2015

    How long is the accelerated program? I can't find any good infer on their website. Can anyone please explain the degrees being offered for students with previous degree? Also, this school seems very expansive, is it worth the cost for a job that might pay $60,000 after graduation? Any help is appreciated.

    MSU Denver ANO Program

    I had only asked about ANO so I assumed that to be the case, but may be that was a total for both ANO and traditional. That would improve the ads a little I guess :-)

    I also applied for the January 2015 cohort. I called the office last week and the person on the phone told me that they received some 300 applications this time around, that's A LOT. Anyway, there is nothing to do now but wait. Good luck to everyone.

    I don't think they compare scores. Each school requires their you to take the entrance exam for their school only. But, I don't know anything anymore :-)

    Gcu fall 2014 hopefuls

    The test is broken out into separate sections. Bio was one of them so I took it. The proctor was clueless as to what we were supposed to do and said to take all sections. The whole test was very basic (math, reading, chem) I just wish I read through some Biology materials before taking it. Without the bio section my score should be at least 90%. After I got back home I emailed the nursing advisor to find out if my score would be enough and she stated that she has absolutely no idea as to what the admission committee will be looking at. I just would like to get one straight answer from someone.

    I scored an 86%. That was without studying for it at all. Now I wish I reviewed some of the Biology and A&P sections to get a higher score.I hope that will be enough. My GPA is somewhere around 3.6 - 3.8.

    I am taking my HESI this Monday. Do they just take the average of all scores or do they look at each section?

    I'm wondering what is the primary way that you intend on paying for GCU tuition? Since the program costs are so high outside of the scholarships that GCU advertises will you be covering the tuition with student loans or is there financial aid available?

    Did anyone do their background checks yet? How long did it take?
