Hello everyone!

I am looking for current, past, and even prospective students for Riverside's RN program. I will be applying for the September 2013 professional nursing program. For current or past students, what was your GPA and teas score? Also how was the program, instructors, clinicals? I did attend the last open house in December and I was hoping that a student or recent grad would be there to talk about their experience. I love how the instructors seem to be really supportive and the small campus also appealed to me. To other prospective students what start date are you applying to and do you have any other nursing/healthcare experience? Any advice or other information on the program is greatly appreciated! :up:

25,500 is the listed price right now. Other costs that aren't included in tuition are the book estimate: 874, uniform and shoe estimate: 289, supplies estimate: 118, and credentialing estimate: 390.

Oh ok. Would someone be able to pursue a RN-BSN program after completion is my main concern?

Yes, as long as you have the pre-reqs required for that particular school then you can apply for RN-BSN. I asked the same question along with many others,lol.

If everything goes as I have planned then the only pre-requisite I'll have left is development psych. Since I can apply w/o having that I'm going to apply for the fall as well. Good luck, maybe we'll be classmates.

I took that class at TCC and absolutely loved it.

(developmental*) I wanted to take it at TCC after a little research on ratemyprofessor.com. But with living in Hampton and working full-time, it is easier to take it at TNCC.

Hello all! I'm new to all nurses but I applied to riverside for fall '13 and received my call back to take my TEAS V on the April 29. It's been a long nerve wrecking road filled with blood sweat and tears after not being able to apply to vcu due to a bad grade but life goes on so my fall back school is riverside and at this point I'm just really hoping I get in but I'm so nervous about the TEAS test I'm terrible at math although I have been studying so ill keep everyone posted!
