    You will definitely get in sooner I got in a 2 semesters early and had the chance to get in even a semester before that. Search for the other threads on this subject and you will get some relief I promise.

    I also applied this past june and was given a seat Fall 2014. Everyone swears to me I wont have to wait this long. I hope they are right!! Good luck to you and hope we both get bumped up!

    It will be definitely shorter. I was told 3 years, but it was actually 1 1/2. Get those co-reqs done now, it will be too hard to juggle those with nursing classes otherwise.

    Thank you staragate for your reply! I am finishing up my co reqs this semester and hoping to find a job in the medical field to get some experience. How is the program going so far?

    I think the program is great. The instructors are thorough and helpful. If you use the resources they offer, then there isn't much chance of failure. The people who drop out of the program did so mostly because of life events. There were some that struggled with the content, but that's to be expected.

    Tips: Plan on working part time at the most. You really need the extra time to study.

    The books they use are Elsevier. They sell about 5 text books in a package. It's EXPENSIVE, but do it. It includes a lot of online codes and a discount on everything.

    Join the SNAP boot camp. There you will be fed and given the low-down on the program.
