    Dianah, I will not violate the TOS There really are no bad teachers at City College. :heartbeat

    San Diego City College is a great program! All the teachers are really good and really know their stuff. I graduated in May last year. The teachers really care about having a good program and educate the students well. No one is a slacker LOL

    Jens and EmeraldStar I"m so glad you got in!! All your hard work has paid off!

    Now put yer skates on!!!

    Thanks Jen and Faeriewand!

    I feel like I can breathe a sigh of relief now This was my first time applying so I'm fortunate that there was no more waitlist. As for orientation, I'll be attending the one on Tuesday as well.

    Congratulations on your impending graduation craziechiq! I'm the one who keeps sending out emails to the DON about jobs for new grads! And then she sends them to everyone! LOL Someone yelled at me to stop telling everyone about the jobs I keep finding! hahaha In the California forum I've started a thread about new grad jobs 2011. Come on over!

    I was in the rn program for two years!!! It sucks! The instructors are awful to you, and your clinical instructors are even worse! I dropped out because I basically had a breakdown and was getting B's! from the moment you get in, all they do is threaten to kick you out! Trust me, go to an accelerated program. Some of the smartest people in the program were kicked out over stupid things! I wouldn't go there for free! If you want to be in mental torture from the abuse, then wait it out! I am going to be enrolling in another program this fall!

    bella, which program are you referring to?

    My apologies to everyone on the list. I got off topic and started talking about City College when this thread is about Grossmont College.

    Congratulations to jens2010 and emeraldstar - it is so nice to hear about other students getting into the nursing program!
    I am new to this site, but searched "grossmont" since that is where I applied and got accepted for Fall 2011. I was looking to see if there would be other people I could expect to see & meet in August. Even though I do not see any other Grossmont people on here - it still adds to the excitement for school.
    Good luck to you two on your start at SD!

    re: FEAR IS MOTIVATION.

    rizzy81,
    it can be a bit more difficult than in the past, simply because admission priority is on a point system. The better the grades, and other criteria, the better a chance you have. take an alternate position if they offer it. I do wonder sometimes how this can be only an associate's program, but all the energy/education you put into it will only make you a better nurse.

    I dislike what bella said, an emotional opinion only slightly derived from fact. Act professional, be prepared and you will succeed.
    It is a good program with instructors that are experts in their field, overwhelmingly nice facilities, and helpful staff. Once in the program, you control your destiny, noone else.

    I just received my first rejection letter (boo) from Grossmont's RN program. Thankfully, I was accepted into their LVN program that starts this summer. At least I have a plan B!!
