Maricopa County Community Colleges?

  1. Hello everyone,

    I have recently applied to the nursing program at PVCC. I have yet to decide my top 5 and wanted to see if anyone had any insight? Those who are in the program what do you like/not like about the school you are at? I have heard great things about all the schools, but wanted some insight from those who are currently in the nursing program (or have graduated) or those who already picked their top 5. I'm sure this question has been asked before, so links to previous posts are also appreciated! Any advice or tips are welcome

    Thank you!

    I have just started the GWCC?NAU CEP nursing program at Gateway this summer and I have been going there for 2 years I have nothing but the best to say about this school.

    I just got on the waitlist for estrella this month. I am doing estrella as my first choice and glendale as my second. I won't choose any more options than that simply because it wouldn't be doable for my to travel to the other schools with my kids school schedules. so I'd take that into consideration for your choices and only put down schools you can reasonably travel to for 2 years.

    I just finished at SCC. I would recommend you put the schools that are the closest to your place, but make sure to fill in ALL 5. The wait list is long and you might lengthen your wait if you only try for the one closest to you. If you get in one that is far away just go to the first block and then see if you can transfer closer to your place for block 2-4.

    The attrition rate is high for block 1 so there are usually open spots for the other blocks. I have heard that SCC and CGCC battle for the highest NCLEX pass rates.
    Hope this helps.
