  1. Hi everyone, I am applying to the GWUH new grad positions starting in July 2020. It says at the bottom of the job listing "only one application is needed". Does this mean that this one application will apply to all of the new grad positions, or will I have to apply to each position separately? Thank you.

    CSU San Marcos ABSN Fall 2017

    It probably means your application has been started and they need to review your transcripts to complete your evaluation. Our group only has 28 people in it so far, so they are still potentially admitting people for this cohort.

    ADN+BS to MSN or FNP

    The schools that I've seen require a BSN to get into an MSN or DNP program regardless of previous non-nursing Bachelor's. If there are programs around you that do not require the BSN, then good for you.

    CSU San Marcos ABSN Fall 2017

    Did anyone get any information as to when orientation will be? They just said it would be "forthcoming".

    Do C's get degrees?

    It depends on if your school permits you to have Cs or if they will kick you out after getting a couple of them. Honestly, you should just do the best you can if you want to keep your doors open for a Master's or doctorate degree in the future.

    CSU San Marcos ABSN Fall 2017

    Hi guys, I potentially have rooms for rent in a 4 bedroom house in Lake Elsinore which is about 30 mins away from the Temecula campus. If interested PM me and we can discuss further! :)

    They want me to be an RN

    I'm not sure if you can actually just leave your previous credits out like it never happened. If a school EVER find out it will be bad. There's also ethical issues if you do this. Anyway, it looks like you can't be a traditional student, so if going to nursing school seems like the right choice currently, you should go for it.

    Advice for Biology Graduate

    If you truly want to pursue nursing, you might need to retake some classes including your science prereqs if they are not As or Bs minimum. If you have some savings from your current job and can support yourself while taking prereqs, it can work. My cumulative gpa was okay, but my science gpa was a 4.0, which allowed me to be accepted to a few programs in CA.

    Enter your TEAS V Scores here!!

    Program Type: ABSN Adjusted Individual Total Score: 94.7% ATI Academic Preparedness Level: Exemplary Mean - National: 65.6% Mean - Program: 66.1% Percentile Rank - National - 99 Percentile Rank - Program - 99 Reading Adjusted Individual Score 97.9% Mathematics A.I.S. 100.0% Science A.I.S. 93.6% English and Language Usage A.I.S. 83.3% I took the test last minute and studied for about a week. I was very surprised about my score, but very happy as well. I recommend taking it after just finishing your science prereqs so that it is still fresh in your mind.

    BSN in California

    Most of the colleges you listed are not BSN programs, except for Samuel Merritt. With a good GPA, you should have a decent chance at a program.

    BA to ADN/BSN/Direct Entry or Medical School or MPH?

    Are you in Canada? I know there's a lot more than three PA programs in the US!

    CSU San Marcos ABSN Fall 2017

    Same here, I've talked things over with at least 20 people this past week, majority of whom are nurses, and family and friends and I have decided I am going to go with CSU San Marcos over the ADN program. This hasn't been an easy choice, but I know I am worth the investment and I feel it is the best option for me personally. I can't wait to meet you all come orientation!

    Nursing school or not? ADN or BSN?

    If RN is what you want to start off with then definitely go BSN. What entry level jobs do they hire for ADNs in your area? Like CNA?

    MD office to owning a practice

    I am not an NP, but I have interned for an opthalmologist who did his MD/MBA dual degree and owns his own clinic which has been open for about 3 years. He said he makes a lot less than he would just working for someone because he has to pay staff (2 medical assistants and 1 front clerk), rent, medical supplies including the upfront cost of medical equipment, and invest money into the business (marketing, decor, upgrades) before he takes the rest as income. His revenue also depends a lot on the type of cases as most of his patients come from medicare which pays less than a patient who has private insurance. Revenue is also impacted by no-shows and the variability of the amount of patients he sees as it depends on things out of his control (marketing, scheduling, time efficiency). He also does his own billing with his wife who is an ER physician which is a lot of time commitment. He works 8am-7pm 6 days a week and is the sole provider in the clinic. Although this is different from your situation, I just wanted to highlight some of the challenges I've seen for a practitioner to own their own business.

    Ultrasound tech or MRI Tech school?

    You can try looking at your local community colleges to see if they also have sonography or other tech programs. I would be wary of the cost of the program at Gurnick which costs as much as a Bachelor degree for an Associate's.
