    I am currently attending Touro University - Nevada in Henderson, Nevada. Its a new program so I was able to get in without the 2+ year wait of some of the other places. If you already have a Bachelor degree in something else, its a very good option.

    Potiential applicants and waiting list are two different things. You can have a school to have 600 applicants for a 30 seat program. If only 60 meet the critera (pre requisites, teas test, etc...) for entrance you will have a class of 30 and a wait list of 30.

    There are a couple of ASN programs through a community college (in Indiana) that do not have a wait list. Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana This link is for state wide schools, so some may have a wait list.

    Yeah, there are no wait lists at (most) Ivy Tech, but the competition for a spot is FIERCE!

    NHCTC-Laconia in New Hampshire has no wait lists. Deadline for applying is Feb. 1st. Last year everyone that qualified got in. They did waitlist some but went right thru that and some that applied just before the semester got in. Some requirements are HS Bio and Algebra and a NLN test. Tuition is very reasonable and class sizes are small.

    Welcome- NHCTC Laconia, Community College programs include ASEP, computer tech, marine technology, graphics

    I don't know how accurate this list is... I am going to one of these schools (Coastal Carolina Community College in J'ville, NC) and while there isn't technically a waiting list, only about 30 people/year get in. It is highly competitive as they do receive over a hundred applications for the nursing school each year. I know some people who had to reapply for 2 and 3 years to get in.

    I am not too sure about Cal State San Bernardino being on the list. Maybe for the LVN-RN RN-BSN or the BSN-MSN programs only. But not for pre-nursing students..I heard the program is impacted and a friend of mine received a letter that she couldn't be admitted due to the fact their program is impacted. So, I don't know if they are referring to the other programs they offer.

    i don't know how fierce it is. they will not contact me back; they have however returned contacts with female applicants. hmmmmmmmmmm. i work with a couple of ladies who have contacted the school and have gotten results.


    i have since applied elsewhere and been accepted into the pre nursing. there are over 600 of us competing for 30 seats for the core program.

    My daughter goes to Thomas Jefferson University's Geisinger campus in Danville, PA. There are no prereq's. Then gen eds. are done concurrently w/ the nursing classes. I was unsure about this program, but so far, so good. She is learning a ton of stuff and skills. I can't believe it. It is very intense. I do not believe they have a waiting list. It is a two year ADN program and they are done in two years. www.tju.edu Good luck to everyone. I know a lady w/ a very good GPA who has been waiting a year and a half for admission to our local community college. It is frustrating. She is a wonderful tech and would be a great nurse.
    I just went on their website and couldn't find a price. Do you have a rough est of what each qtr/sem costs?

    One ADN program where I live receives 750 applicants and accepts 40 students PER YEAR. It's obscene. I don't hold out much hope of getting in as they don't evaluate the GPA of transfer students. Oyr accpetance is based solely on NLN scores. Gut telss me the seats will go to students that are enrolled f/t at their school already. I hope I am wrong.

    The other ADA program has a year to eighteen months wait. You can't even get on the list until your have BIO 111 completed. That seems tro be unusual for most schools in the area, but fact for this one.

    I applied to one and will apply to the other in May as soon as BIO 111 is complete.

    Oklahoma City University's Kramer School of Nursing - no waiting list and as I understand it, will accept any student that meets their criteria (3.0 GPA and all of their prereq's) by opening additional course sections if necessary. It is a private university, so tuition is $$$ but cost of living in Oklahoma is super low.

    WOW

    I wish we had something like that here in Australia ....I want to try & get in to do my Nursing Degree through a Hospital rather than TAFE ....

    Australia is crying out for Doctors & Nurses & have been recruiting from overseas...Our health system is in Crisis...so much cost cutting & cutting back on nurses puts the whole health industry in jeapody...be good if those higher up could see it though.!

    If you want a lucative career you should start a new Nursing Agency because they are always short ...cannot fill the many shifts availabe ...keeps me busy! I work for an Agency...no shortage here!

    Oh well move on & upward !
