    BeJuled,

    Congrats to you too I wish I could join you guys, but I'm still waiting

    Do you mind telling me what number are you in the waiting list? I'm just soooooo curious and trying to estimate when I could possibly get in. Did you apply to the new point system?

    Thanks and congrats again!

    I didn't apply using the new points system and I couldn't see what number I was on the wait list because they had already taken it off when I went to look... what number are you? I know that a lot of people will either already be going to another school or won't contact them back so you may still have a chance of getting in! If I decide not to go then there's one more spot maybe for you!

    I see...I don't think I'll be starting with you guys on Spring 2012, I'm still in the 80's as of Aug 10

    Why won't you keep your spot?

    Well my number went down pretty fast so maybe you'll get in for Fall 2012.... Its a long story but basically I'm in an LVN program right now and will be done in december... but I REALLY want to get my RN as soon as possible.. so I'm thinking starting over and doing the generic RN will get me there faster than trying to bridge.. because by the time I get my LVN license and apply for transition courses then get on a waitlist for the bridge it will prob take longer than going the generic route. I know people think I'm crazy for considering it but I can work as an LVN while I'm in the RN. But I'm also considering taking my chances and going for the bridge but really don't want to miss the opportunity to get my RN since I've been waiting this long...

    Anyone want to give me any input or opinions on what I should do????

    Wow yes that's a tough one. I thought of getting my LVN too at first, but I decided to just continue on pursuing my bachelors while I'm anxiously waiting to get in. I hope like you said, to get in in Fall next year.

    If you decide to do the bridge, did you see and ask how long of a wait would be? From what I saw on the wait list, the bridge option does not have too many students on the wait list. Also, the program would be shorter for you. Starting the generic program is not a bad decision as well, at least you know you're starting the nursing program this coming spring. Whatever you decide, you have to follow what you think is best for you. Good luck to you

    If you already have a spot in the Generic program starting this spring, I say go ahead and start this spring. After you complete your LVN program it still takes FOREVER to get your LVN license (which I don't understand, but that's the way it is). So, you can't even submit your application for the bridge program until you have your LVN license. At that point you'll almost be finished with your first semester of the generic program. Going the bridge route only saves you one semester of school but you realistically wouldn't even be able to start until at least a year after you would start the generic program; so by my calculation, you'll complete your RN faster if you go ahead and start the generic program rather than wait and apply for the bridge program. Just my Best of luck to you.

    Hi everyone who got accepted for Spring 2012! I just did too. First I got a conditional letter in the mail, then one saying I have been accepted via e-mail. I have to turn back my acceptance form before September 8th...just waiting for that in the mail! Eeks. Congrats!!

    Congrats RNtobeRochelle! Were you on the waitlist? If you were, what number were you on the list? Or did you apply under the new point system?

    Hi Cheyenne ivey, I am number 13 on the list right now...15887. I don't think they took everyone off that is up to number 15 yet, for the spring 2012 program. I am number 13 right now, but they said I am accepted. Hope this sounds right? Haha. Orientation is on Oct. 24, so excited. What about you- your number? Or did you apply under the new point system?

    I'm still on the 80's...sigh! But I guess once you guys are accepted, my number will come up again I haven't applied under the new point system just yet? I will this month though, I'll see if I can get in sooner.

    Ok. Well definitely apply by the new process as well! Dang, you're in the 80's and they gave you an acceptance letter or just a provisional letter saying you "might" be accepted? Either way, that's great!
