I'm a pre-nursing student, still working on my pre-req's at Los Angeles Harbor College. I was hoping to get into the nursing program at my current school, but I'm a little discouraged by the lottery system used to determine which applicants will be accepted into the program.
I'd like to look into nursing programs at other schools, but I don't know where to start. I checked out a few community college websites but I find a lot of the same thing, and the information I'm looking for isn't anywhere to be found. If anyone has any info on the nursing programs at Los Angeles Harbor College, El Camino College, Long Beach City College, Cypress College, Cerritos College, or any other community college nursing program, could you please share your experiences? For example, is it a lottery based system or is there a waiting list? How competitive is admission? What are the REAL admission criterion? They always say 3.0 or so, but what are they really looking for?
I want to be really prepared for the road ahead and I'd like to know what my options are. I'm sure I'm not alone in my curiousity and wish I could just find this type of information all in one place. I'm hoping my fellow students & alum could offer some insight & help us all out.
Thanks a bunch!
