|I currently attend APU's nursing program and transferred in fall 2008. the semester i transferred, 3 of us were accepted directly into the nursing program, whereas other people were accepted to the school, and then took general education classes, while they continued to apply. Your chances of getting in to the nursing program are much greater if you are a student at APU because they accept about 35-40 students from apu, and about 3-4 transfers.(I had a 4.0 when i transferred, but the other two girls i think had 3.5's, and apu considers letters of recommendations and experience, etc. so grades aren't everything) Anyways! Even though it is incredibly rigorous, and God i just want to die sometimes. I think that is just because I am young and not used to responsibility and being on my own, and there are soooooo many pressures in nursing. oh god. Anyways, other than all of that, somehow, i would still say apu is a great place to attend. even though i struggle with depression… the ppl at the school are great, and other people are happy, and i'm happy sometimes. The girls are sweet in nursing, which i think is rare. I think you often find competitive ppl in nursing, whereas at apu, my experience has been primarily kind students who really do care to support and help each other.there is also a little community for transfers. You can enjoy the monthly events (like bowling, ice skating, etc.), and if you have a fabulous transfer leader (LIKE ME!!!!!) you can enjoy the random transfer events your transfer leader puts on (like movie nights, going to chapel together, etc.)and you can continue to be involved in the transfer community by becoming a transfer leader in your 2nd or third semester, all the way until you graduate :)
anyways. i don't think i really answered any of your questions lol.
but yes, there are all different types of christians here. some are authentic, while others are more superficial…
you just have to find students who have similar beliefs and passions that you do
i'm sure they are here.|
