Well, here goes. I am currently a teacher. I have a bachelor's degree in Mass Communication. I have a fairly good GPA (3.3). This spring and summer I am taking the 5 pre-req classes I need to apply to the RN program. I might have one more to do in the fall... it depends on if the class I need opens up. I'm sure I can ace those classes just fine. I am not sure if I have to take the NET since it's just reading comp and basic stuff (or that's the impression I've gotten... I could be wrong). If I did, I'm sure I could ace that too. It has to be easier than the GRE, right? And I did well on that one.
So how competitive is SCC's RN program? My fear is that I will go through all of this and then get denied entrance to the program. Does anyone know their selection process? It doesn't look like there is even a waiting list... you just have to reapply. I absolutely can't do any daytime classes since I have to keep my day job. I also don't want to be stuck teaching for the next five million years while I wait to get into the program. I'd like to be done with all of it before I'm 30.
Anyone know anything about this?

Cassiesky, do you know when the program filled up? I would love to go straight for my RN through this program, but it's doubtful I would be able to get through all of the prerequisites in time to apply.
I wish they started it more often than once a year in January....

I basically have to take all of the pre-req's. I'm not enrolled in anything right now for the spring semester. And I don't think I can get them all out of the way this summer during my summer vacation (I am a teacher.) But I am at least going to get a head start.
In the meantime I have been accepted into the Orlando Tech LPN part time/evening program that starts this August.
So I am probably going to go the LPN route just because I am impatient and I want to get started *now*! LOL ....
Then later I will bridge from LPN to RN, or possibly I will go straight for the BSN transition program at UCF, because I already have a bachelors degree in another subject. But SCC sounds like a great program....
