I agree with all the above comments regarding finance and educators. However, it would be nice if we could enter the wait list provisionally earlier in the pre- req state. If a student's number should come up and they have not completed the pre- reqs, throw the number back in. It seems this way it would be a more continuous process rather than waiting so long after completing the classes. It will most likely be 17 months out of pre-reqs before I start ns, how much of all that science studying will still be in my brain after so long?
I agree. Also, I think that MCC's arrangement for applying is absurd. It is also very complicated, and apparantly very difficult to get clear explanations of when, how, where, and why we have to do all of the items on their list of to-do's for the application process.
I had a phone call with the nursing advisor at Mesa C.C. 2 days ago which lasted almost 30 minutes and after the call, I had no more of an understanding of what I was supposed to do (and when to do it)
than I did before the call. On the contrary, I was considerably more
confused after the call, and I decided that I will just have to call someone at another Maricopa CC and ask them.
I couldn't agree more about the prereqs/waiting set up. That is the most complicated and senseless part of the process. I have not yet found out when I will be able to apply, or what is the difference between "provisional" and "full" applications, and what is the difference between "time stamped" and "pooled" applications, or what is the advantage of any one of those over the other, despite asking the advisor all of those exact questions.
I ran into no road blocks at all in trying to aquire information about ASU's BSN program.
EDIT: I am going for the BSN, and I plan to go to grad school also to become a nurse practitioner in time - No M.C.C. for any of that.
