    hey sdmamma. you got in through the scripps program, correct? My friend is doing that too, she just has to take one more class. So do you get in immediately after you finish your pre-reqs or how does that work? she wasn't sure, i told her to see a counselor, but any answers would be appreciated

    Craziechiq--

    Yes I got in through Scripps. From what I understand, if you completed all youe prereqs---just the sciences I think , (u can still have general ed unfinished) you get on the waiting list, submit your app to Scripps, along with 2 letters of rec (one must be from your manager, the other from another coworkwer) and just write a "200 word statement about why you want to be a nurse..blah blah blah (the usual hoop with any program . You turn it into HR and its actually SCRIPPS who picks the candidates, not Grossmont. But each semester, Grossmont has 40 total slots, including the LVN-RN step up, and 30 of those spots are reserved for Scripps employees. So...I would say she has an excellent chance of bypassing the waitlist alltogether if she gets in through Scripps. Tell her good luck!!

    Grossmont only admits 30 LVN-RN step up students a year in the Spring, so I don't know how that works with the Scripps program. It almost doesn't seem fair to those who have spent years on the waiting list that 30 of the 40 students admitted every semester are through Scripps. Am I reading this right? I was only on the waiting list for the LVN-RN step up for one semester even though my letter said the wait was 3 years.

    After reading this I decided to ask the Department of Nursing at Grossmont College and the response was that the Scripps applicants are above and beyond what they take from the waitlist and no student that has been waiting on the waitlist will wait any longer than they would without the Scripps grant.

    I am on the waiting list for LVN-RN (since 02/2009) and yes i was informed 2-3 year waiting period. I am just curious to know how long others waited for this program.

    I submitted my application in May 2008 and was told it was a 3 year wait and started Feb. 2009 for the LVN-RN step up. I think so many people are submitting their applications everywhere, so the wait times are unrealistic. I was on the wait list at Grossmont and Southwestern.
