Hi everyone! Listen I am currently a student at Chaffey College. I am almost done with all of my pre-reqs and can apply to my schools nursing program in the Spring of 2012. Currently I have heard that there are around 200 applicants per 40 open slots which obviously makes getting into the program difficult at best. My question to all who live in this or around this area is "What other schools (not private) offer nursing programs that do not have such a difficult time getting into????" Any help you guys can give me would be so greatly appreciated!! Thanx

Really, Ventura only has about a semester wait right now??
Yes, I went to their orientation last week. They offer them on a weekly basis, I would suggest calling and putting your name on the list to attend one. They said they technicaly have no waiting list. The counselor giving the presentation said they had to call over 160 people last semester to fill their class. At MOST you would probably wait a semester and that's if they wind up completely inundated with applicants in the next month. They extended their filling deadline, I believe it is the end of March or May?? I don't remember exactly because I am still working on my prereq's.
The only catch is your prereqs must be completed, not in progress, and you must be a licensed CNA. You can take CNA classes through some adult eds, CC's and private institutions. The prereqs are Anatomy, Chemistry, MicroBiology, Physiology (must be taken seperately from Anatomy, not a combined course), Intermediate Algebra and Psych 5 or a specific Health Class. Psych 5 here is like human development
