South University- Nursing

Nursing Students Pre-Nursing

Published

Anyone heard of this school I am thinking about getting my nursing degree and finishing up my pre reqs since they are on a quarter system and can get them done at a short amount of time. I have taken quarter classes before and its fine for me this. Anyone just getting info and debating if I should go to a community college or here.

South University? As in South University in Savannah, GA?

Yes there is one in Savannah, GA but I am looking at the West Palm BEach, FL location.

Ahhh, good deal. Well, I live in Savannah, GA for 11 years and know from experience that So. Uni is very good. Challenging, but their programs are excellent.

Specializes in Nursing Professional Development.

What makes you say that they are excellent? A new campus is opening up near me and I am curious about them. They seem terribly expensive and I am always leary of for-profit schools. Are they a "for-profit" school?

Specializes in CVICU, CCU, MICU.

I took my nursing pre-reqs here, i liked the quarter system. But they are incredibly expensive and I found the staff to be less then helpful at times.

I liked the small classes and the schedule, I do not like the size of my loans though.

I was just acepted into the PBSC Nursing program which starts in January, so i am finishing there

:-) much more affordable

I just applied to their Janurary program and the thing is that the price of their tuition after all my grants got in and everything in Financial Aid barely covered my expenses and I still have to come up with a private loan alternative to pay of the remaining balance. I spoke to the Financial Aid officers and she told me that almost every student that are in the nursing program have some balance to pay every month. It kind of got me nervous and being that I already have loans up to my neck right now I decided to take some of my pre reqs at PBSC and maybe go to FAU. It seems like a good school but the price is over the top.

which program? the allied health? or nursing?

Nursing BSN

academically, their programs are really good. the students come out knowing their stuff. the one in savannah does interviews to get in and continues those while you are in program. true, it is crazy expensive. i have a very good friend going through the pa program there and have had to take out private loans as well. but she said the education and intimate atmosphere she gets there is worth it for her.

wish me luck guys, i have a tour with them tomorrow at west palm campus. I finished all my pre-reqs and hopeful start their program in the spring. It come to a point that i really don't care about the expenses, i just want to get into a nursing program, get my BSN and FINISH with school than wait forever to get into a public school. i"m 20, i want to be a nurse by 22 or 23 year old.
