Hi all! I am a pre-nursing student getting ready to put in my applications for Spring 2013. I was wondering if anyone might be able to give me a general idea of what Saddleback College's Nursing program is like? I really would... Read More

    There are a bunch of schools that have a ADN to BSN program so its acutally alot easier to transition from an ADN to BSN then going staight to a BSN.. while having a BSN is advantagous in getting a Nursing job, you can still get hired with an ADN.

    try to get a job at a hospital now so youll have your foot in the door, people who work at a hospital currently have a huge huge huge advantage in getting a job right out of nursing school

    i also applied so we will see, i dont know what my points are.. but i think they are in the 50-60 range... who knows we will see!

    thanks. its assuring to know that ADN to BSN route is easier to get into than straight to BSN. I am volunteering as a clinical care extender. Hopefully that might help me in some way.

    Also, do any of you know if the saddleback nursing program offers stethoscope as part of the material? or do we have to buy our own? I was talking to some nursing students and some said that it was given to them by the nursing program/school and some said they had to purchase on their own. I am wondering because I might be able to get one very cheap, but don't want to pay for it if I was going to be given one ffrom the nursing program.

    when i went to the EMT program at saddleback they gave a stethsocope.. the one they gave me was a cheap crappy one (and i hate the ones with the double tubes, they annoy the crap out of me) im assuming they do for nursing but i wouldnt think its the best quality so i think youd be better off buying one thats a good quality one

    I'm so excited for the letters to come out! I wonder if they will send them out early. I'm also thinking that since there were less applications that they will accept a wider range of students points wise.

    I stopped by the nursing office and they said they weren't even close to ready! >.<

    Only inform by mail, no email.. for some reason I thought I read that they would send an email out as well.

    Good luck!

    They're not even close to being ready to send them out? or not ready finalizing the people they accepted ? I hope they're just not ready to send the letters out.

    I think they came out a week or so early for the fall (so I heard), so maybe they will come out early this time. If not, we'll probably get them by Sept 30 like they posted. I hope we all get in.
