Beldar_the_Cenobite, CNA 470 Posts Has 5 years experience. Apr 5, 2017 I'm a veteran (HonDC, USMC, 1985) but I don't support the notion that veterans should be excused from any part of the application, admission, or graduation process anymore than should someone from any other group or class.UNLV is trying to get Veterans to come into their school first. They're trying to be more supportive. The Veteran Stand Down was recently here in Vegas by US Vets Las Vegas and UNLV people were there. Nursing relatedness wasn't present. But the ones I met with were combat medics and gave me some insight on groups available to students like the NS---whatever it's called. The nationwide group for students to get information on the program the're going in, financial aid information specific for the program, asking students what the program is like, etc. I'm only talking about excusing veterans for entrance, not admission (I think they do preference for admittance) and not graduation which should be the same as everyone else since when we're in the program and we're doing the same thing, veterans are in the same class and would obviously recieve the same exposure of workload, etc as other students who are not veterans. I'm just saying all this stress and worry and anxiety and time being put into pre-reqs to get into a school that only gives you two chances to apply...it's just overhwhelming and annoying. Sometimes I wonder, if I'm getting into this program to use my GI Bill, am I only hurting myself with it being accelerated? Is accelerated recommended for those with a bachelor's? Just things I think about. I would hate to waste my GI bill on something that I won't make it in if it's mentally like SEAL training.
