Pasadena City College RN program - page 10
Hi, I've heard that it's not recommended to work while enrolled as a student in an RN program. I'm applying for the Spring Semester at PCC and while I do intend to leave my current employer... Read More

You guys applying anywhere else?
What CC are you guys at? PCC?Last edit by DarkBluePhoenix on Aug 6, '11
Aug 6, '11Quote from BeachBedheadFor anatomy, physio, chem, micro, english I got all A's. Overall gpa is 3.9 Do we need to make an appointment with the nursing counselor to turn in our applications or do we just hand it in person without any appointment? I still have to get my high school transcript. I'm currently at Mt. Sac right now. They're not accepting applications right now because the waitlist is too long. I really wanted to go there.Me too. What's your stats?
I can't turn mine in because campus cant process transcripts if thy are not there
Aug 6, '11I was thinking about that too. I've been hearing that many hospitals prefer BSN. I'm worried we won't get jobs because of our associate's degree..I'm applying for Cal States for next fall..it's just frustrating because each school I want to apply to have different prereqs just to get in. I was wondering if it's better to get my ADN first then go for BSN, or go straight for BSN.
Aug 6, '11Same here! What would you do if you get in for pcc and you start the program..but then you get an email saying you got accepted at CSULA?
Aug 6, '11I don't know?
I have spent a few years trying to satisfy all these schools and their dumb pre reqs.
I don't know. Definitely go to CSULA but I mean what if I don't get in?
Aug 6, '11I know how you feel..I hate that each school have different prereqs. It's either english 1c, or another chem class..sociology..ugh. I wouldn't know what to do either. ADN is faster and cheaper. Wouldn't it take the same amount of time to go for ADN and then BSN? I'm not sure.
Aug 6, '11ADN is 2 years. BSN is 3
Bridge programs are 1-3 years depending on part or full-time. I mean I doubt ill get accepted to PCC because I have that dumb B in English.
I hear ya bout different pre reqs. It's incredibly frustrating.
I'm doing my last 2, this fall which is o chem and stats, as well as a foreign language.
You done with all pre reqs?
Aug 6, '11What's also frustrating is the fact that they look at English and sociology and crap. because at the time, I didn't know what wanted to major in and so I did whatever little effort to pass the GE classes. so I'm regretting it because they take those classes into account.
Aug 6, '11I'm still working on my 60 units. I should have at least 60 units after this fall semester though. After fall, I'll need history and ochem. It's so hard to into that chemistry class. If I don't get into PCC in spring, I'll take chem and history..but I think to apply to a cal state we would have to be done with those before spring huh? So if we got our ADN first and decided to go for our BSN, it would only take a year? That's not bad. Don't think negative. You could still get in even with your B in English. The science classes are more important.
Aug 6, '11Quote from kadcOh you dont have the 60 units? You going to PCC right now? I go to Citrus College which is right down the 210I'm still working on my 60 units.

Actually you can apply CSULA right now, well not technically right this second but around oct you can
CSULA is accepting applications for fall 2012 BSN program starting sept 1-dec 1
As long as you have anatomy, physio, inorganic chem, english, critical thinking, and intro to psych done before march 23(?) of next year, you still are eligible. Plus you need to take the TEAS before dec 30th and turn it in.
You have to apply to the school oct 1 then once you get your pin and stuff for CSULA you apply to their nursing program. if you have any volunteer or healthcare experience then turn that stuff in too.
Thats what I am doing.
I think it all depends on my summer grades, my overall GPA sucks, but luckily my sciences saved me. I am studying for the TEAS as of now and going to take it before fall semester starts. I just need at least a 90% in reading and english to get enough points to be competitive for CSULA.
YOu should apply there too
