    I got in!! Holy crap, now I don't know what to do... because if I don't work, I can't pay for things, you know? LOL I don't qualify for any student aid (previous degrees) so I'm just all confused now what to do. I want to be super happy, but I'm so nervous/scared too- how do I make it financially? I guess I have some thinking to do!

    what about private loans?

    Random question, do any of you know any ADn to BSN programs that allow me to "co-enroll" for BSN while I'm still working on my ADN at saddleback?? Thank you in advance!

    Good luck to all!
    Co-enroll in nursing classes? I don't think you can do that because the BSN classes has prerequisites of classes that you do in the ADN program, plus ADN-BSN application requirements usually include an RN license.

    I know, it can be quite challenging trying to get into a nursing program, yet alone getting into all the pre-req bio's without petitioning. One time I was petitioning for 2 weeks straight until I finally got my physio class at golden west. Now that my pre-reqs are done, I am anxiously waiting to see if they call me (cuz I'm in the first pool if the 60 or some alternates decline acceptance). Does anyone know an estimate of how long it can take for nursing dept to call if they have an opening? I guess it depends. I wonder up until what date they will add more people from the alt list or first pool. I know there are deadlines for paperwork, background checks, etc. I assuming that I should wait until maybe begining January?

    Saddleback is going to be offering a bsn bridge I believe. Not sure if it will be starting in the spring or not. I got in for next semester also I'm super nervous tho. Anyone have any advice for those who got in?

    I had total 73. Before I applied, I met with a nursing counselor. And we filled out my application together. He told me that for the last couple years, usually students over 70 were pretty much safe. High sixties have a very good chance, and low sixties have been border line. He was very informative. I can MSG u his name if u want.

    Hi cathering,
    I spoke to that counselor in fact and he told me i wouldn't get in! boy was he wrong! anyways i spoke with my teacher and she stated that they just started the pilot program with fullerton and that they only work with students who start in the fall. I am going to ask more questions during the paperwork session next week to find out exactly what they are offering to the spring class. My teacher also mentioned that only 10 students out of the 60 are actually able to be a part of it, so I am not sure how competitive it is to be one of those 10 students. What date are you going to do your initial paperwork? i go next friday. i can't wait i am so excited! sorry for the long post!

    Hi ctgangel,

    Thanks for your response! And congrats (: my paperwork session is next Friday as well. I am also curious. I am hoping that they will have a BSN bridge program for our spring 13 entering class as well. That's definitely something I will have to ask if I get the chance next Friday. Haha well maybe ill see you Friday! So excited. Thanks again

    Hi Cathy,
    I spoke with fullerton and they are not offering anything next spring. The students that are currently in the trail run won't even start until next fall and its for one year, meaning one semester longer than the ADN program. Unfortunately I don't think that any BSN bridge program will be starting with our class I want my BSN as well. My friend who just graduated from Saddlebacks nursing program is currently obtaining her BSN online and its a year long program. I will probably do that as well, that way i can work while continuing my classes. good luck and maybe ill see you next friday!

    Does anyone know if the nursing dept has gone through the 10 alternates yet? Still having faith that I can possibly get in if they call from the 1st pool applicants. Thanks!
