    You have to compete with other applicants to get into the program for SCC.
    Pro: don't have to wait like VCC
    Cons: decent competition from what I heard. There is a chance you might not get in

    You Don't compete with other applicants to get into the VCC nursing program, you just need to fulfill the minimum requirements.
    Pros: you don't need a high GPA or TEAS score to get into the program
    Cons: 1 year or more waiting times

    hope this info help u guys
    Does anyone know if the waitlist for the Advance Track (LPN-RN) is as long as the one mentioned above? I have a few more pre-reqs to finish up but am hoping to transition in without too long of a wait. I don't mind a short wait, but don't want to wait over a year!

    Advance track is different, I don't think there is a waiting time for that. You just compete with other applicants to get into the program.

    Hi vccorscc,

    Is it possible that you could send me the orientation package too. I start on the spring but it's always better to know the information early.

  8. by   Monica578
    Yes, if you get the info packet, can you email me it to me as well?

    your very welcome. please keep in mind that things DO change semester to semester. but overall its mostly the the shots and the backround tests. CPR certification needs to renewed yearly. DO NOT start your backround check, your term will get a different code from what is mentioned in the packet. But cost wise, im sure it will be the same. So you guys can kinda get an idea how much your going to need come your time :] ahhhhhhhhhhh i start in less than a month, getting excited now

    Hello vccorscc,

    I will be starting the nursing program in Spring next year and I was wondering if you could be able to send me an email to with the copy of the orientation packet as well. I want to see how the program works Thank you so much for your help.
