The ADN program at Kaplan is super challengingAverageNursing
The ADN program at Kaplan is super challenging as with most universities. The only down side is the cost, but you may only wait one semester or none at all to get in. Save money by transferring in as many classes as you can, but beware. If you take under 6 credits per semester, you cannot get student loans or FA. My suggestion is to keep the course load as low as possible but not so low that you lose FA. If you can take two classes per semester, you will be good to go and an focus on the hard medical surgical nursing courses. These transfers go for your sciences as well. Just remember your credits need to be under 5 years old. The instructors are great (so far) and the staff in the nursing office are outstanding. They will help you if you are struggling, motivate you to keep going. They really do want you to succeed.

Question
I graduated from the vocational nursing program inAverageNursing
I graduated from the vocational nursing program in 2011. Staff made the course work challenging and at the time, I did not like, what I deemed as busy work. However, when taking NCLEX I then realized all of that "busy work" was needed to be successful. Aside from the cost, Kaplan was a good school for me personally. So much so that I am now in the RN program at the same school. My advice is to know that nursing is unlike other professions out there. The days of 4.0 GPA may or may not be out the window. If you want to keep a decent GPA, you really need to consider working very part time or not at all. Grades suffer when students think they can work and go to nursing school at the same time. Lastly, keep a positive attitude. Nursing school is no joke.
