Need advice about Chaffey College!!!!!!

  1. 0
    Hello everyone,
    I'm a CNA who is registered for the vocational nursing program at Chaffey and then have hopes to get my RN after I become an LVN. Can anybody give me any information about the college? Are there long waiting lists for both programs or just the RN? I appreciate your advice very much.

    I don't know very much about the program. I'm assuming you've already gone to the school's website. I believe there is a wait list for both programs. I had a friend who got her LVN at a private school (she already had all the prereqs for the RN program though, and I think all A's) She got into the RN program right away as soon as she got her LVN license.

    Yes, I've viewed the web site and tried talking to a counselor but I was on hold for almost a half hour. Looks like I'm going to have to do a walk-in appointment. Are there any Chaffey graduates out there that could also comment? Thanks in advance for your help.

    The LVN program has applications once a year. This time around, there were 80 on the list. They literally randomly pull 40 names out of a hat with 10 alternates. It's just by matter of luck. The best counselor to see is Ms. Star or Starbuck. I can't remember the last name. It's one of the two. She counsels students who are interested in the nursing dept. Don't see anybody else. I have experienced other counselors of no help.
    I believe they pick the same amount for the RN as well due to limited space available at the campus. However, in 2009 they will be expanding the LVN class and they will be accepting applications twice a year with double the size of students. I hope I have answered any questions.

    Citrus College in Glendora also has an LVN program with no waiting list. You only need to qualify by being the top 40 students in an intro class. I graduated in July '07, am working and continuing with my pre-reqs for the RN. Citrus has just started their RN program this year and I will be ready to start in '08. I also met with the coordinator at Chaffey. Once my pre-reqs are done I can apply by taking one class. They told me that so far no one has been turned away. They also start their programs twice a year now which obviously increases your chances of getting in. They have a great reputation for their RN program.

    Good luck.
