    Nope...
    I decided to do the RVC route. Hopefully I get into the spring 2007.
    Good to see another Rockfordian

    Good to meet you too. I just met a woman who is in her first year at RVC and she really seems to like it. I got into SACN, yippee, but I don't know if i'm going to accept or not. It was my first choice but since my son has been diagnosed with diabetes I decided to apply to NIU as well. Their program is only three days a week instead of five and you go an extra semester.
    I read on the pre-nursing board you are an alternate...I hope you get the spot!! Maybe i'll see you during clinicals!!

    Hmmm...I've been a type 1 since 1980.
    There's a very good endocrinologist in Belvidere. His name is Dr. Paul Reith. He's very generous with the free samples.

    Hi there!

    I JUST applied, I'll probably get put on a waiting list (cuz its so late) if I get in...I already have degree but my GPA from my previous degree was only a 2.6 from UW-Madison, so I am hoping they take the grades from my most recent classes more seriously! We'll see....what have you heard about grades and SACN? What about the waiting list?...Hope all is well.

    Hi! I am so excited to see someone else on here who will be going to RVC. This will be my first semester there (transferred from ECC) finishing my pre-reqs. Gonna apply for the Fall 2007 nursing program. Did you do your pre-reqs there too? Is there anything you can tell me about the nursing program there or the school? I am taking bio 103 and the required math this semester.

    Hi Sail81, I hope you get in...let me know. I am not sure about SACN having a waiting list...I thought I read on the website that they have a waiting list based on GPA and other factors and that you would be notified of your position on it. I know they rank your overall gpa and your nursing pre-req gpa(which has to be above 2.7) seperately. I think the lowest gpa they took last year was well above 3.0 but I don't know if that is for nursing pre-reqs or overall. Let me know when you get word. Good Luck!!

    Hi! I will be moving to Rockford this summer. I didn't know St.Anthony's had an RN program. Is it diploma/ASN/BSN?

    Hi dnw826,
    The program at St. Anthony's is BSN. They also offer MSN degrees.
