Spalding ABSN Class of 2018?

Hey all! Just trying to get a feeler out of anyone else is enrolled in the ABSN program at Spalding University! I know a program just started in May but I'll be starting in June! I'd love to get to know ya!

Hi did you start your program? how is it so far?

Hi! Yes I started my program in June. We are almost done with the first session. It is goinging by very fast but it is definitely a do-able program if you manage time. I know there are a few in my cohort that even have young children that seem to be doing okay in the accelerated classes. So far, so good! í ½í±í ¼í¿¼

Wow! That's amazing. How is the lousville area? I'll be applying from out if state? What's the tuition cost like?

What's your schedule like for first semester, like when you say it's doable, is it possible you think for people without science degrees lol 13 months seems so intense! Are your instructors good? I have so many questions sorry to ask, you're just the first person I could find in this thing who's in the program!

Can't believe you're finishing 1st session and it's barely the end of July!

No worries! Spalding just redid their tuition. The traditional 22 month program is about 48k but the accelerated is just under 40k I think. The campus is in the heart of downtown so there are people who walk through campus too but I've felt pretty safe. They have those blue lights spaced out too and will escort you to your car if you feel uncomfortable. Louisville itself has a lot to do in the city, but I live across the river in Southern Indiana.

As for classes, I really don't think you'll have a problem. My cohort has a lot of students from non-science backgrounds. The department just doesn't want the students working more than 20 hours a week. I work part time but only on a couple days each week. It's crazy to think I only have a year left! í ½í¸‚

Thanks! Do you know how many are in your cohort?

How competitive is admissions? I don't have the strongest gpa lol

Are you a cna? I see they require it for admission.

Thanks for the tuition info, it's not as pricey as I thought.

That's good to know! Accelerated programs seem so scary, but then I have to remind myself that people do survive! Lol That's awesome that you're able to work during the program even if just for a few days. It's good to earn money and get work experience!

I know! Can't believe you'll be done in a year from now that's insane!

And did you get any scholarships or aids to help with tuition?
