Right now I'm looking into the following programs: Bridgeport Hospital School of Nursing, St. Vincents, Naugatuk Valley CC, and Goodwin College. I'm seriously about to lose my mind trying to figure this out and application deadlines are looming! Please help me figure this out, I would love information about any of the programs I am considering...Here is my situation:
I live in Farmington and I would prefer to not have to commute 20 gazillion miles but if the program is worth it I will!
I have a semester of LPN school under my belt that I got all A's in, but I'm guessing those credits will not transfer anywhere since it was a tech school (am I right?)
Right now, I'm not working...my parents have been incredibly amazing enough to let me and my daughter move back in with them to pursue my education, so I can commit myself full time to a program if need be, and I want to get it done as quickly as possible so I can get out of their hair!
Other than my LPN semester, I have a few CC credits, and none of them are anything to write home about...Nothing failing, just a couple C's...should I take those over again to increase my chances of getting in? Is there anything else I could do to improve my chances, like write an essay or something?
I live within 5 minutes of Tunxis Community College so I would prefer to take most of my pre-reqs there-will they be accepted by these schools?
Which would be the best option in my situation? My main objective is to start nursing school as soon as possible, and not take endless pre-reqs if I can avoid that...does anyone know if the pre-reqs are the same for all of these, or are some of them more than others?
Thanks in advance!!
