i also have a question about the absn program if anyone can help; is it true that you must have a ba to apply to western's absn program? the site states that the program is designed for bachelor’s prepared or
post-baccalaureate individuals. also, the recent newsletter from western (http://www.wcu.edu/webfiles/pdfs/fal...ewsletter.pdf)
noted that many
(meaning not all) of the students in the graduating class had ba's.
"[font=stoneserifstd-medium][font=stoneserifstd-medium][font=stoneserifstd-medium][font=stoneserifstd-medium]students in wcu’s absn program, many
of whom already hold a degree in anotherdegree in nursing in one year,
field, complete a bachelor of science
i would gather from this statement that a ba is not required.
is this requirement in stone or are there exceptions? does anyone know?
the absn is the best program that would meet my needs, a shorter more condensed schedule since i won't be working, classes in town rather than an hour away, and a clinical assignment at the veteran's center, where i already have close contact with several nurses and administration.
since it's a bachelor’s program, i'm not sure why there's the prereq of having one already. at the start of the 2013 program i will have about 90 applicable credits. does anyone know what the curriculum difference in the absn program is as compared to the standard bsn? i cannot find the curriculum online and i'd like to make a comparison.
once i complete the bsn program i'll be moving on to my master's with a goal of a career as a family nurse practitioner. i'd love to be able to begin the master's program in 2014, but that would only happen with the accelerated program.
am i spinning my wheels trying to get into a program only available with a bach degree or do i have a chance?
