    Applying to Direct-Entry MSN Boston Programs for 2015

    Wow, thank you for the input. That really helps and yes I agree with you it seems a bit weird. I believe since their in class program is so small they are trying to make money by having this Hybrid portion and trying to have students sign up for it. I do not have a problem with online courses but, I love the one-on-one in class learning since I graduated from a small private college I am familiar with that type of learning and it is beneficial. I really want to get into NEU because they programs are exactly what I am looking for and they do not need the GRE or so many Chem classes like other programs... I missed a few school's deadlines and that may haunt me lol I only took a Concepts of Chemistry course and many schools want Gen Chem 1 & 2 which I do not have, but, they have accepted my chem as Gen Chem 1 and all I need is Chem 2. I cannot get into Chem 2 without Chem 1. So this is the issue right now.... I am trying to solve. Did anyone use Portage Learning courses for their Prereq's? They offer a Chemistry, I am just not sure if that counts for both Chem's....waiting for a call back from them. If I get into the NEU DE in class program I would not need to take those chem's nor my GRE..

    Applying to Direct-Entry MSN Boston Programs for 2015

    Thank you! I applied to the full time in class learning, but If I do not get accepted to that then I was told I can still do the hybrid option. Not sure if that's what I want to do lol

    Applying to Direct-Entry MSN Boston Programs for 2015

    Hi! I have applied to Simmons and Northeastern. I am applying to Regis as well. Northeastern is my first choice but, they only have 24 spots for Direct Entry BSN/MS. That is very scary. I am freaking out because these three schools are the only ones I am interested in and I have not applied anywhere else. I am 23, I graduated in may 2014 from Sacred Heart University with a Bachelors in Business. I want to use my business degree later on and even combine it with nursing. I did study abroad in Rome. I volunteer at a local hospital in the NICU and Ambulatory since March 2014. I have been working as a caregiver for about over 5 years! I have strong personal letters and strong 3 recommendation letters as well. I started doing my prereqs and I have finished most, I need AP 2 and Chem 2. I am also taking the GRE in two weeks. My prereq gpa is not that strong because in two classes I received a C.. I will take at least one of them over to get a better grade this summer. In august my sister in law gave birth and she has been going thru postpartum depression. This really threw me off course because I had to be a full time mom and take care of the baby, while going to my classes and also working. I was worried 24/7 about the baby because I could not leave him home alone with his mother. Thankfully she is FINALLY getting better and I could now focus on school. The baby is 5 months and healthy :) I have been dealing with health issues my self which made everything harder. I have no idea how I managed to take those classes and go through all of this. I am praying that I do not get rejected!!!!! I really really want to get into Northeastern, Its really expensive but, they have the Neonatology program that I want to do. I was told by them to also take into consideration their direct entry hybrid program, which sounds convenient and also scary! Did anyone apply to a hybrid nursing program? Good luck to all!!! Hoping the letters get sent out soon!

    Simmons Direct Entry - 2015 Fall Start

    Hi, I also applied to Simmons. I was not aware of the change in deadline. Where did you see that? I have also applied to Northeastern and I am applying to Regis, the only thing is I did not take the GRE yet and I am trying to get a stop so I could take it this month. I hate waiting to hear back!
