    Keiser University for Nursing???

    Thank you so much for your feedback! I'm so glad that you had a great experience at Keiser. I am still up in the air as to which school I'm going to chose but leaning towards Keiser, so it's great to hear that you had a good experience. Thanks again! :)
  2. I have over 100 credit hours and an overall GPA of 3.65. I don't think that would be considered 'not doing well' in the basics. I have all A's in the pre-reqs, minus a B in A&P II. I will most likely get into SCF and SPC, I just didn't get into USF's BSN program. Perhaps because my essay wasn't good enough.
  3. Um... my name is Rachael Nicole, but thanks for the concern.

    Keiser Accelerated BSN 2016

    No, it's an accelerated BSN for people with at least 60 credit hours. The first cohort is supposed to start January 2016. It's 16 months long, same as their ASN. It's not on their website yet, the program is brand new and they are still working out the logistics.

    Keiser Accelerated BSN 2016

    Hi all! Is anyone going to be attending Keiser University in 2016? They were just approved for an accelerated BSN program for people with more than 60 credit hours. I am trying to decide between this 16 month program or a much cheaper 24 month community college (SCF/SPC).

    Okay, I'll be the first...Keiser University.

    BUMP! I am trying to decide whether or not to attend a community college for an ASN (24 months) or pay 25k more and attend Keiser's accelerated BSN program (16 months...they have just been cleared for this program). My only worry is that I do already have some student debt and worried about their reputation, so was just wanting to get some feedback from people about their experience and ability to find a job after graduating. Thanks so much for any info! :)

  8. Bump :) Any more advice would be SO greatly appreciated! Thank you all.
  9. Thank you for your input! I agree that it's a lot of money on top of the loans I already have. There is the possibility of scholarships and I know one that I've already spoken to that will cover 10k of the tuition for either the ASN or BSN program. I wonder if I can get some scholarships to greatly reduce the cost, if the BSN is then the better route. Hmm.
  10. Yes, I've read that also. It's also a concern for being accepted into a future NP or CNRA program. It's just that the timing element is very appealing to me, considering I'm 30. :)
  11. Thank you for your reply! I appreciate it. I have heard both good and bad things about Keiser myself.
  12. Hello everyone! I am really needing some advice and thought this would be the perfect place to get some. I had applied to the University of South Florida's BSN program for Fall 2015 but did not get in due to not having a high enough GPA. So I am trying to decide where to attend nursing school and I have completed all pre-reqs for all three programs that I am looking into (I have already applied to St. Petersburg College and I will most likely apply to the other two as well, so I don't have all of my eggs in one basket again!). The schools that I am trying to decide between are St. Petersburg College/State College of Florida to obtain my ASN degree or Keiser University. - SPC/SCF are both community colleges and around 13k each. They are both 2 year ASN programs. I would begin the nursing core in Spring 2016. - Keiser University is a for-profit school, very expensive, but fully accredited. I spoke with an advisor today and she informed me that they have JUST been cleared for an accelerated BSN program. This program would start in Spring 2016 and it would be 16 months long, but the downside is obviously the cost of around ~$36k. The upside would be that I would be done with the program 8 months sooner than if I were to attend the ASN programs, and that I would have a BSN. The problem is that I already have student debt. So I'm trying to decide if getting a BSN 8 months sooner, rather than the ASN, is worth the cost difference of around ~$23k. My career goals are NP or CRNA. Does anyone have any advice or what they would do if they were in my shoes? I am 30 years old, single and no kids and I feel like I am behind in life So I am beyond ready to get into a nursing program and to have a career. Any advice is GREATLY appreciated! :)

    @Medic6758, what did you think of South University? I was not accepted into USF's BSN program for Fall 15 and I am trying to get an idea of what my other options are. I read one of your posts about a year ago that said you had applied and were in the process of starting the ENG III class at South, but since you were accepted to USF, I assume you did not attend. I tried to PM you but I guess I cannot do so until I have 15 posts. I really want to attend a BSN program, rather than an ASN program because I have so many credits! For USF's BSN I took Bio I as my chem requirement and it looks like UT and South both require chem, which I do not have. Sorry for the rambling message and thank you for any information you can give me! You are very helpful on this forum. :)
