  1. Sooooo....I recently graduated from Gwynedd Mercy University program (traditional on campus) and I also know of some girls who graduated from the ABSN at Gwynedd. There is not a lot of information about the program on here so I thought it would be cool to start one. Anyone can post comments or ask questions about the program. If you're already student feel free to chime in or ask questions yourself. The school is a great school, definitely not perfect but I learned a lot. Ask away!!

    Be prepared for the disorganization. You can learn a lot but just be ready.

    Adapt really good studying habits for medsurg and for maternity/peds. Focus strongly on the PowerPoints and do practice questions to help you learn how's to answer the questions. You can work but I don't recommend working fulltime. Always stay up on the clinical paperwork so you don't fall behind. I think they changed up the curriculum so I'm not sure about the structure. However med surg is the class that most people struggled with and also maternity so study and attend lecture for the most part. Other than that, you will pass

    My gpa was a 2.91 when I transferred so don't worry about your gpa. As long as your sciences have a C+ or higher, you should be fine.

    Gwynedd Mercy University BSN Fall 2017

    Hey, I'm a senior at Gwynedd and I don't recommend buying any of the books except the med surg books. None of the books were helpful, I studied completely from the PowerPoints and doing questions. DO QUESTIONS and don't miss lecture. Junior year is the hardest year, so be prepared to study and focus on nursing school. It's definitely do able.

    Hello, which courses have you taken already? Typically your advisor should be able to tell you which classes are transferable. A lot of students come from CCPso I'm sure there is a lot of classes they accept. Be ready for a challenge when you come to Gwynedd and they are a bit unorganized at times but you learn a lot.

    Okay good, I think you're good. Basic anatomy of the heart and the body is all you need to know for right now. They use medical terms so it's good to brush up on them. You can text me if you have any other questions, and I know a few jobs that hire student nurses. Do you have any other healthcare experience?

    They will help you in lab if they aren't busy discussing their personal plans amongst each other. I recommend going to open labs and studing the powerpoints as much as you can. The lectures are really boring and a waste of time because they read off the powerpoint instead of teaching.

    Lol! Well I have no problem answering your questions :) I bought all of my books off of Amazon. The bookstore is way too expensive and some of the books we didn't use. For NUR 208 you don't need to buy the book. For NUR 209 I still haven't opened the fundamentals of nursing book, I use the powerpoint lectures and the PrepU. I could even sell you some books at the end of the semester for really cheap if you learn better that way. The only bonus about buying books from the bookstore is that they bundle everything together for you. But if you're willing to look on Amazon, you will be fine trust me.

    No problem! You start clinicals once you begin fundamentals of nursing NUR209. It's just for one weekend. Then after that semester you have a two clinicals every week for NUR 307/316 or 317. Depends on what you are transferring into Gwynedd, to really be able to tell you where you will start. I heard for the Fall 2017 semester you will start with NUR208 and NUR212, if that's the case be prepared to study your butt off because NUR212 is very complex but not too hard to pass. They are also very strict on the way they grade. They do not curve grades by any means and you can fail a class by a half point and they will have you repeat it.

    I'm currently in the BSN program at gwynedd and I graduate in the spring of 2019. I was also a transfer student and they took a lot of my credits which was cool. The program is (ok). I don't understand why they make you take 2 chemistries...the classes are huge so not a lot of one on one attention...everything is rushed through so you have to be able to keep up and definitely learn things on your own...study as hard as you can because the material in class usually don't match the test...besides all of that it's a really good school, I'm sure you will do well if you're passionate about being a nurse.

My GPA is a 3.0 but I have about 5 prereqs to complete. All of my sciences are done, Just a religion course, computer course, history coure and an elective...is anyone done all the prereqs and only need the nursing classes??? Just curious as to where everyone stands
