I am looking into Sam Merritt as it is a fast way for me to get my RN. Background, I am working and in Bay Area and would be my second career. I currently already work in the healthcare field. Right now I am debating to stay in my current field or move onto nursing. I've always enjoyed helping people and want to be more hands on than I am now. But I can't really afford to wait for community colleges or state school or move...and SMU has 3 application days?

Just wondering if Sam Merritt is worth the price tag and how did people pay for the schools?? Experiences?

Thank you!

I can't answer your question as I have not attended SMU, but I wanted to suggest that you might want to post your question on one of the posts for the people who have already applied there and have been accepted.

Not sure if you are looking for the ABSN or regular BSN, but there are a few posts which already exist from people who have applied.  You may want to search for SMU ABSN 2018 or 2019 and see what pops up. Pick one where the people are already midway through the program and I'm sure they will tell you what they think about it.

Also, the ABSN is the one for people who already have a bachelors degree.  The regular BSN if you do not have one.  The ABSN has 3 separate application deadlines - not 3 days to apply.  

Check out the SMU website and they go through the whole process, the dates,  and what you need, etc..

Good luck!
