I have lived in Florida all of my life except for 5 years that I lived in Colorado (Denver-Broomfield areas) and loved it there. I returned here in 1996 with my now ex and I am strongly considering moving back there with my 2 children.
I have been trying to get into a nursing school here in Florida but all of them have at least a 2-3 year waiting list.
The information I am looking for is, What are the best nursing schools in CO and what type of a waiting list do they have?
I am a single mom so I am trying to go the fastest route which would be to get my LPN first and then transistion to RN later.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I attend Front Range Community College in Westminster, Colorado. They also have a 2 year wait list. But during that 2 years there's classes you have to take before entering the program. So it works out great. If you get your pre-req classes out of the way and theres an opening into the program you can sometimes get in within a year. Somethings to know before picking a school is the percentage needed to pass courses. At FRCC it's a 75% which is a C, anything under that is a D. At other schools I heard it's 78%-80%.

Front Range Community College (many community colleges, actually) offers ADN, LPN, and 2-year RN programs. However, the wait is also 2+ years right now.
I spoke with Carole Peters at the FRCC nursing program information meeting for September 07 and she said that they have not had room to add LPNsfor the last 2 years. They have 700-800 folks on the waitlist for the ADN and over 100 for the LPN-ADN
I called the FRCC Larimer campus and was told they were not sure if they were going to have enough LPNs to run a LPN -ADN program this time.
So, if you are a LPN already check out Ft Collins, FRCC Larimer campus!
I am in Westminster and I am considering the commute to Ft Collins so I don't have to wait forever for FRCC Westminster campus.
It's pretty frustrating that most colleges have such long waitlists.:angryfire
I try to keep a postive attitude by thinking about all the
experiences I'll have when I finally do
get accepted somewhere
