APU is an amazing school. It's a bit hard for transfers to get involved, but the school tries hard. To get the most out of the school I would recommend living on campus, even if there is very little to do around the campus. The nursing program is top rated and very competitive, so study hard if that is your goal!

questionHey is it hard to get into the nursing program at APU, im from out of state and would like to transfer there. Whats the best hall to live in?and how is the spiritual life there, is it authentic and really true to Christ? oh and i hear alot about earthquakes, is it really bad in CAli. id really appreciate your opinion. God Bless!
questionWhen do you apply for the nursing program? what is the percentage non-transfers get into the program?
responseI 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.

questionWell I lived in Michigan if I want to work in the hospital I need experience and I was wondering since I got my nursing degree online it doesn't matter where I went to
