Hi! I'm new here! I'm going to be starting my prereq's this summer...hopefully I'll only have to take chem, micro, and A&P (and CNA training), I'm crossing my fingers that the other classes I took when I went to college the first time (in 93-96) will transfer.
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had any info on the ADN program at Ventura College. I've heard that there is a waiting list, and it might be years!
I'm going to make an appointment with an advisor soon, but if anyone knows anything about this, I'd love some feedback!
Thanks...I look forward to learning a lot from all of you here!

I am not going to the program in Ventura, but I do live in Thousand Oaks, just south of you. I am attending nursing school at Los Angeles Pierce College (I lived in Calabasas when I submitted my application). How is the program up there? I found it incredibly easy to get my old classes to transfer as prereqs, so I think you won't have a problem.
Our community college district admits to the nursing programs
by lottery. So everyone has a shot to get in, but it's just a matter of when. Do they do that in Ventura, too? If so, the waiting list may not be long at all!
Good luck on getting in, no matter how they do it. It was nice meeting you!

I had heard that California colleges require nursing students to be CNAs before admitting them. I see it's true! How do you feel about that? What about students that are already EMTs? Would they still be required to become CNAs?
