San Bernardino valley college Waitlist

  1. Hello!

    I am currently on the waitlist program for San Bernardino Valley College and I was wondering how long it usually takes. I 1st applied for spring 2010 and was #406, then did the reactivation and was #256, i just turned in my 3rd reactivation notice so i should be getting my 3rd letter in a couple mths. Is anyone here on the waitlist as well?

    not on wait list.... but 2nd semester student.... my advice finish all your pre reqs for a BSN...... csusb offers a RN-BSN.... so look into those pre reqs while you are waiting ..... p s pre reqs dont help much at all once you start the program.. only class that kind of helped was make sure you understand mircro very well

    Coriaa1 I got your message, but it wont let me reply cuz I dont have enough posts!! So yes, Im in first semester. My big sister is Leann. Any good tips for me???? To answer the girls question above, your looking at three years at that number. They have dropped class sizes to 35 this year so unless a ton of people go somewhere else or they up the class sizes, I would start applying to other places.

    WOW it seems like it'll take forever for me to get in @coriaa1, yeah I heard they're no longer taking new applications till further notice. Do u know if the pt system will apply if we're already on the waitlist?

    SBVC has a couple of information meetings every semester. I went to the one on Sep 12. They said they goin to change the waitlist to pts system, but theyr still waitin on approval from the district. Does anyone know the latest news about waitlist?

    I finally start in the RN program at valley college it took about 2 1/2 years! Any suggestions/advice/pointers/look outs to those who already started in the classes?

    I know this thread is a year old, but I wanted to let you all know some new information! The SBVC nursing program website is updated with the new criteria for admissions. Even if you are on the waitlist already, you can take the HESI and apply under the new point system and possibly move up! They are taking applications for spring 2013 under the new system starting next month - 75% of the admits will be taken from the waitlist and 25% will be from points based admission!!! That means about 10 students will apply in September and get in for spring 2013! Good luck!!!
