Has anyone had this happen?

Does that mean you lose your job if you don't get it?

I can't afford a college that is 30,000 a year, but the state college that might be around 3500 a semester may not accept me , as I had to stop out last year due to no money. Now they have such a waitlist, they're in no hurry to re-accept me.

What's a person to do?

I can understand the concern with the cost of tuition. That's why I decided to go with WGU

have you checked into that program?

There's a plethora of online programs that are very happy to have students in their RN-BSN courses....and at decent rates. Honestly, I can't think of ANYONE who has been rejected from any of them! If you have an RN license already, you've already got a nursing degree or diploma....hardly a big risk for these schools.

What is your concern about getting accepted? It's probably the easiest enrollment you'd ever have.

I was accepted 2 years ago. I actually only have 3 classes to go 'til I was done.

Apparently they didn't like that I stopped out for a year. Had to be re-admitted to the college( pay the entrance fee and all) and the college accepted me, but the Nursing program says they're now full , and the Chairperson said "I'll have to see run it by the commitee to see if we will re-approve you."

Kind of stinks. I think they're doing this now as so many ADN's are being told to get their BSNs- there's no shortage of applicants. Locally we still have one community college, but most nurses are graduating with BSN's in the first place.

Sorry, I'm not made of money. I had to have loans just to get the ADN :( Don't want to "owe " the company time and they only give you 3000/yr anyhow.

eta- one of the colleges that will accept my prior credits- just one class is about 5000 bucks :(

I will check into that. I wonder if they will accept prior credits/transfer.

Absolutely..they do!!

I just transferred credits towards the BSN from two previous colleges I attended.

There are specifics CUs that have to be taken at WGU. Best thing to do is give them a

call and talk with them about where you are and where you hope to be.

Hope this helps!!

Op, I think I would avoid any school that charges 5000 per class! Yikes!
