    If you score below a 62%, you have to complete a remediation plan before you can start the program. At least that's what I think they mean.

    Was the orientation for all Fall 2011 students, or just LVN-RN students? I called PCC on April 8th and I was told they weren't making decisions for the straight RN program until May. Hope I didn't miss the boat. =(

    Hi snookiejc. I don't think that the straight RN applicant have heard yet. Also--I think that last year they didn't hear until June, even thought they said May. I'm not sure why, though. I am hoping that was just last year and that this year they'll be able to tell people sooner.

    Ok, thanks so much for the information. Yes, I read that it took until June last year... that bites. I'm with you... hope that was a one time thing! Have you applied anywhere else?

    yes...I've applied and got into another program and it's a BSN program. I'm happy to have gotten in, but I'm actually still considering PCC b/c it's a much better location for me and a better time frame. I'd plan to continue with a bridge program to get my BSN. We'll see....I haven't decided yet, and can't really, until we hear from PCC!

    Hey! When is the next application time for PCC?

    @mint4321 - you should take the BSN route, as New RN grads don't a get job easily. Having your BSN, will be a plus. And you could save more too.

    Congrats on the BSN acceptance. I think I'd choose that if I had the option, but only you know what is best for you. You're right though, you cannot make any decisions about PCC until they get those notifications out. Ugh, I hate having to be patient!!!

    I'm def considering that, although I'm also considering the fact that one of the main things that hospitals/employers look for with new grads is paid experience. At PCC I could keep up my volunteering at the hospitals i'm at and possibly even work as a CNA (the BSN program I got into is an accelerated program.. That could feed right into a job when I graduate and then i'd continue with on online ADN-BSN. But when all is said and done, that's not guaranteed either, so I am leaning towards the accelerated program.

    Hey! Which school did you apply for the BSN program? Any additional classes to take before applying?
