Who all has applied to either USA (July 2015) or Samford (June 2015) with hopes of beginning the accelerated bsn program at one of these universities? I am interested in hearing feedback from others!

Thank you- and congratulations to you as well! I am just beyond grateful to have been accepted to a program. There are pros and cons to both programs. However, after researching both programs it came down to the basics for me. If I'm accepted to the nursing program at USA, I will go there. Their program is only 12 months, and it's a public institution. Samford has an extra semester of courses, and the tuition is significantly less expensive at USA. I am an instate resident. My parents are funding my education, so I took that into account as well. I ultimately want to be a CRNA which is an additional 4 years of school. With all that being said, that is how I came up with my decision. If I'm not accepted to USA's program, I will definitely be at Samford! Both are excellent programs; it just came down to the basics for me.

Are you definitely going to Samford? Did you apply anywhere else?
