    PhilSN; Did you get into Delta's nursing program? I'm currently working on my prereq's at Delta. I plan to apply for Spring 2010. Any advice??
    Thanks in advance! :-)

    Hi F4Mom. I don't have too much advice for prereqs other than what I put on here already. I took Adamson for physio and Solomowitz for psychology and I really suggest them. When the prereqs are all done but before you've gotten in, try taking HS 3. It's the same as the nursing pharmacology class, but they offer it early. A bunch of other nursing students and I didnt know that. On the upside you don't have to take it with the other nursing classes, but on the downside the nursing students generally do better since they have clinical experience to follow everything in lecture.

    Once you get in, thats a whole other list of suggestions, lol. Good luck, and just don't give up hope! You can make it!

    Thank you for your quick reply. My counselor has also suggested taking HS3 during the semester that I apply.
    I'm currently "setting myself up" to apply at Delta and MJC. I do want to try and take Physio @MJC-they have better ratings....Although Dandury?sp? @ Delta has good reviews.(Caveat: Fri/Sat 5 hours each day!)
    For me , living in Tracy, Delta and MJC are relatively equal distances...
    Hope you are doing well in your studies-Keep it up!
    Thanks again.

    No problem at all.Physio at delta may be hard, but the hard work really pays off in the end. It's very good prep for pharmacology. A lot of the Delta nursing students took nursing at other colleges, and a lot of them aren't doing as well in pharm. My suggestion would be to just focus entirely on pharm one semester.

    Does anyone know which clinical facilities Delta uses? Any of them? I'm pretty far away from Stockton so I'm trying to figure out if it would be a reasonable commute or not.

    Delta uses Lodi Memorial, Sutter Tracy, Kaiser Manteca, Doctors Hospital Manteca, San Joaquin County Hospital, and St. Joseph's in Stockton. After the first semester, the only clinical sites are St. Joes, County, and Lodi.

    I read this same page about a week ago, and it talked about how they accept 75% in district and 25% out of district applicants. They changed the page and took that off. They also took off their ADN basic information sheet that had that info on it. Does anyone know if this means they are getting rid of that 75% district thing?

    I was wondering about that myself. They posted the results for the ADN program and there's only one list. In the past they've had two lists. One for in district and one for out of district.

    Hmmm. The page doesn't even have the accepted candidates list up anymore.

    FYI-
    for those who don't already know....what you read is true. Those in district and out of the district are now in the same pool of applicants. So if your grades are decent you'll be able to get into Delta without the wait like at MJC. But those of us who don't want to make that long commute will be forever waiting at MJC.

    they are also beginning to slowly work back into Dameron Hospital as a clinical site. i know pediatrics was there this semester.

    Everyone seems to be looking for easy courses but what the community and profession need are people who are well prepared to take care of them, not people who got through a class because it was easy. Take the easy teachers and learn little; take the hard teachers and learn a lot.
