How hard is it to get into a nursing school?
- 0Jun 15, '06 by tchunyeeHello all,
1. I plan to apply for ADN program in Iowa. Does anyone know whether it is extremely hard to get into one of the community colleges?
2. Does anyone know that whether it is easy for an RN fresh graduate to find job in Iowa Hospitals? Do most hospitals give green card sponsorship?
Thanks a lot!

There are no waiting periods in the private colleges that I am aware of, however the cost of tuitionis very high. I am starting at a private college in October. My costs will be close to $16,000 for one year. Yech!

To give you a timeline, I graduated high school in 2004 and I'm in my first semester right now.
