Good Morning! I was just wondering if anyone in Arizona has information on Central Arizona College nursing program? I would really like to go to attend Gateway's nursing program, but the wait is so stinkin' long...! I am 37yrs old (almost 38 yrs) and I don't want to wait 2 yrs. I am in the process of finishing my pre reqs from Gateway (I am almost done with them) and I am getting my CNA this summer. I am planning on working as a CNA or PCT while I am on the waiting list as well as completing the co reqs, but I would really like to get accepted into nursing school as soon as possible. I know CAC doesn't technically have a wait list. I know the residents of Pinal County have priority, but it is still a shorter wait than the Maricopa County CC's wait list. I have heard that some hospitals in Maricopa County won't hire nurses from CAC. I don't understand....A nursing degree from CAC is the same nursing degree from any of the MCCC's....right? Any nurses from CAC having problems finding jobs in Maricopa County (Banner, Scottsdale Healthcare, etc....). HELP.....!
