If you are looking for something to do while you are on the wait list, check out www.BSNatHOME.com. BSN at Home is an ADN to BSN program that partners with Eau Claire, Green Bay, Madison, Milwaukee, and Oshkosh UW campuses. If you are thinking of continuing on for your BSN, I would recommend setting up an appointment with a BSN at Home representative such as Rachel Merkel from St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I was able to meet with Rachel to discuss classes I would need to take to get my bachelors degree, such as Chemistry and Statistics. The additional general education classes you need can be taken online or in person at various universities because they can be transferred. You can take these classes (like chemistry) while you wait to get into the core nursing classes here at MSTC. One interesting thing I learned is that some classes count as credits towards two or three categories.
General education categories include communications, natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, and etcetera. So a class focusing on the history of psychology may count towards both the social sciences and humanities categories. To see what the category, or categories, the class counts towards you can look it up on the UW credit transfer wizard at http://tis.uwsa.edu/wizards/geInstitutionList.do?reqType=G&clear=yes.
