    Thank you so much for all this information. I was really starting to worry and it was all a bit confusing since I'm number 36 on the wait list. I will check my spam and look out for that package in the mail! Thanks again!
    I received my admissions packet yesterday in the mail. There is a letter that will tell you the orientation date and time (but the information is the same as what I received in the email). You must bring your admissions packet with you as they will be going step by step to make sure everyone does it right. Unlike what is previously mentioned, you DO need a live scan (fingerprinting) done. There is a form in the packet that gives you a list of approved places to get the fingerprints done. As for the used uniforms, there was no information in the packet about that. However, since the uniforms are personalized, I do not see how people can get used ones. On the uniform ordering form, it specifies the what is required to be written on the top of the scrubs.

    You should be getting your acceptance letter very soon if you have not already received it. After reading through this forum, I have seen information thrown around by a few different people (mostly "thirdwatch" and a few by "joshash07". Sorry) that is incorrect or inconsistent. I would suggest ignoring everything posted on here and just wait for the information yourself. Until you are formally accepted and receive the packet, I don't believe advice or information should be given out. Everything you need to know is in the packet. If its not in the packet, then don't worry about it.

    I was accepted to the program once.When I appeared to my orientation. A group of newgrads brought in used uniforms from previous students. I purchase one for about $45.00. It was NOT in the info packet. Give information until you attend your orientation.

    I never attended an info session... Nor my co-worker, who's in her first semester. I just received the packed (like everyone inmy class) and turn in the physical and drug pannel by the deadline. I was then able to register to Nursing Science 110 &111. No fingerprinting for me only for last semester students .


    That was two semesters ago. Thank God I'm not starting this semester I would hate to deal with all this drama so soon.

    Yes, thank you! I will do that! Looking more into the program I found out that i'm able to take certain courses from the curriculum of registered nursing prior to enrollment in the first semester of the program. If I take these courses i'm able to take from the curriculum while i'm on the wait list (such as int. algebra, gen. psych..), will I be finished with the program sooner? What I mean by this is:
    1st semester curriculum consists of :
    NS 110, prof nursing I
    NS 111, fund of nursing science
    *MATH 102, int, algebra

    Assuming i've already completed the MATH 102 course prior to enrollment, would that spot be filled with a class from 2nd semester? And so on? Thus, completing the program sooner?

    This question may sound silly, but I'm completely clueless on all this college business.
    Thank you!!

    Finishing your requisites to fulfill your AS degree for Nursing sooner won't make any difference as to how fast you can finish the RN program. You have to follow the curriculum, so once in the program you will be there for 4 semesters assuming you don't fail any of the nursing classes. Finishing those requisites prior to starting the nursing program, however, will make a big difference for you if you want to excel in the program. It is not an easy program and the less extra classes and activities you have the better for you. You don't want to fail any classes in particular your first semester fundamentals class. If you do, you have to reapply to the program and go back on the wait list. I graduated from the program May 2013, in case you are wondering how I got the information.

    If it makes you feel any better, I'm #196. Lol.

    I'm currently a Respiratory Therapist at Antelope Valley Hospital, and I hope to get in the program as well as do all my clinical time here as well.
