I am courious as to what nursing programs are you applying to or have been accepted to?. I am applying to Goodwin College, Capital Community College and Naugatuck Valley Community College along with Saint Joseph University and University Of Connecticut. I figure the more colleges that I apply to the better my chances will be to get into a nursing program. I am looking more at attending a BSN Program thoughI will not rule out a ADN program and then continue towards a BSN. I have looked into the courses that I will need for both programs. And even though the BSN program requires a few more courses than that of an ADN program it may be worth it in the long run to take those courses and get the BSN. I called the state of CONN Dept Of Public Health that assess the qaulity of nursing programs in the state. And the women with whom I spoke with said to me that "The trend has been that the hospitals in the state are hiring the BSN prepared nurse over than a ADN nurse. What are your thoughts about this "trend ". I look forward to your thoughts about this subject.

Yes it is true they are. Not sure why. We all sit for the same test. If you do go for the AD program, make sure you go get a job as a Tech or Student Nurse it's a good backdoor way to get into a facility.
