A Question From A Future Nursing Student

I am asking this question on behalf of daughter of a very good friend of mine.

Katie will gradaute high school this spring. She plans to be nurse. Katie will be attending a nursing school attached to a local hospital and will receive her RN in 2, 2-1/2 years. Afterwards, she plans to enroll at a four-year college and work towards getting her bachelor of science in nursing degree.

By the time Katie enrolls in college, she will have earned enough credits from the hospital nursing program to be considered a junior.

Katie would like to experience Greek Life when she goes to the four-year school, but she is concerned that she might be considered too old or too serious (!!!) for sorority life.

In short, Katie wants to know if she has a possibility of getting a bid...

I want to reassure her.

Any comments would be appreciated. Thanking you in advance

If she is going from nursing school to a 4-year school, would she be taking undergrad or graduate level courses? If grad level, then very few NPC groups accept grad students as new members. If undergrad, her ability to be successful during recruitment depends on the school, honestly. Without know which school, there's no way to give you an answer.

As PenguinTrax said, it depends on the school. At some of the larger Greek schools (like Ole Miss or LSU) it is very difficult or even borderline impossible for a junior to receive a bid. Then there are others (such as mine) where a juniors rush and get bids all the time. So, in short, no one can really say for sure because it just depends on the school she goes to and the Greek system.

Katie would be considered an undergraduate student; she will be working for a bachelor's degree (following her RN).

Right now, Katie is looking at Pitt, Duquesne, Penn State and WVU.

Hey, you must be a local! Or Katie is. (I'm a Pittsburgher and Pitt alum).

At Pitt, it wouldn't be a huge deal but she may be somewhat limited. Juniors rush quite frequently.

I am currently a BSN nursing student,but I experienced greek life with my first degree in business management.

This is just my opinion. I probably would not think she would have much time for a traditional NPC chapter if she will already be working as a nurse coming into recruitment. Nursing takes a lot of time especially if she works shifts in addition to the demand that a BSN degree puts on you mentally and academically. There are however BSN undergraduates in NPC chapters everywhere (they just arent working as RN's yet). This would be more feasible for her if she is wanting to do traditional greek life. If she wants an RN in a hurry and decides that earning an associates degree first works best for her, she may want to look into other greek alternatives that are non-collegiate such as Beta Sigma Phi or Epsilon Sigma Alpha.

I wish her goodluck in her nursing career!
