    I, too, am an ARC alumnus! I just graduated this last December and passed NCLEX last month. Congrats on getting in! I still have yet to meet someone who had to wait longer than I (8 semesters = 4 years). Sucks but it's all in the past as this shall be for you Can't believe most of the class applied 7 times! Our class was more around a 1-2 year wait. My friend got in her first time! No fair! heheh

    Someone started an ARC page for us last semester and I really like that idea. I was sad that we hadn't done that from the beginning like you guys have done.

    If you study hard, work hard, learn the material, practice your skills, you will have a great time like I did. 2nd semester is a whirlwind and my least favorite semester. Having OB, peds and med/surg all crammed in one semester was crazy! I loved the instructors even the adjuncts.

    Try to get your foot in the door somewhere doing anything - housekeeping, central distribution, transport, dietary, linen - the job market in the area is horrible, just like everywhere else in the country. I think only one out of all of us has landed an RN job so far and she had to move out of state.

    You are also welcome to PM me when you can. Good luck, have fun and learn lots!

    I am glad I found this site, good info. I'm also heading to ARC nursing program coming this Jan 2014. Was just wondering what necessary books and study guides are pertinent for first semester students...

    Hi Cortney,

    I wanted to know how the program is going for you? I was just accepted into the bridge program at ARC for the Fall 2014 and Im so excited I can hardly contain myself. I applied at ARC 4 times and the bridge program once. I want to thank you for adding the little details about orientation I have been searching everywhere and your info is the best so far.

    Hello! I'm planning on applying to the program next year and I was hoping that for those of you that got accepted, would you mind sharing with me your grades and teas score? I'm just extremely discourage and want to see what are my chances!

    I'm applying to ARC this coming year and would love to get some insight into the program from current students or recent grads. After tallying up my scores on the prescreening sheet, it looks like I've made it into the top 30% (but I know the lottery system beyond this point is out of my hands).
