Waiting List? - page 2

I am curious if you had to be on a waiting list to start into the nursing program. If yes how long did you wait for? I will submit my application in August (2003) and I will not be able to start... Read More

    Thanks! I am planning on moving to Denver when I'm done. I thought about doing it before I starting Nursing, but found that the schools were SOOOOO impacted! After reading your post, I'm glad i decided to stick out the heat for another 2 1/2 years, it'll go quick!
    Good luck with your prog, i hope you get in sooner than expected!

    I tried to get in to an ADN program only to find out that I could start the classes but there was a waiting list for clinicals until January 2006!

    I decided to go for my BSN instead.

    The cc's here go by different things but there is no waiting lists. If you don't get in one time, you reapply. Some are based on points, some gpa, and some are a mixture of both. One school is a first come first serve. All require that you have prereqs completed with a minimum of a C and most want the supporting classes completed before you are accepted. Here in NC the competition is fierce in nursing programs. I am hoping to get in this spring to a LPN and then bridge over. Otherwise I am looking at Spring 2005 before I even have a shot even though I have all but 2 supporting classes done and a 3.8 gpa. Good luck to everyone waiting! I find out Tuesday about the LPN!

    Mine has a wait list sort of. They don't actually have a list, but they base entry on when you finished your prereqs and then they look next at when you first enrolled in classes at the school and finally at who applied to school first. So although there technically isn't a wait list. You still wait. It works out to basically a year wait from the time you complete your prereqs.

    I am thinking about doing the LPN route to because I can start that sooner. Good luck to you too!
