I'm new to this but have been looking through the posts and I'm hoping I can get a little help and advice?
I currently live in AZ but will more than likely be moving to Colorado at the end of this year. I am currently taking my pre-reqs so I should have all of them completed by the time I move out there. I have been trying to do as much research as possible but was hoping someone could kinda give me the low down of the school situation in Colorado (denver area, looking at moving near parker). I am wanting to get my ADN, and like everyone else would love to have it done quick without paying an arm and a leg.
For what I understand so far....
All the community colleges (well almost all of them) and Universities are a competitive acceptance, meaning there is no waiting list... you either get accepted or you don't. And the acceptance is HIGHLY competitive.
And from what I understand other schools like Platt and Denver School of Nursing are not as competitive, but it will be very pricey.
I'm just trying to get a better understanding of the schools out there and find out whats best for me.
I don't have the most wonderful GPA, I believe around a 3.0 and my pre-reqs are about a 3.5.
For someone thats is in my shoes whats the best route to go? Are there community colleges here that have a wait and are not as highly competitive to get into?
Sorry if this is all basic knowledge I have been trying to do tons of reasearch and want to make sure I go into the right direction.
Any help and input is greatly appreciated
