I am currently in my second semester of "Pre-Nursing" at Ivy Tech Community College in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. So far I am really enjoying being a student at ITCC. I have heard through the grapevine of my friends, peers, and co-workers that Ivy Tech is a bull***t school to attend for Nursing. The reason I am being told this is that there is an extremely long waiting list and acceptance into the program is almost impossible. What I am trying to do is to see if people can debunkify these "possible" myths for me and put my mind at ease about attending this college for Nursing. Truly, what I am wondering is that people may find Ivy Tech a bit too intimidating and then proceed to make up all of these lies in order to make themselves feel good about not successfully completing the program.
1. Is Ivy Tech really as hard as people say to get accepted into Nursing if you dedicate yourself?
2. Is it true that there is a long waiting list even though the college states that they are no longer kept?
Please help put my mind at ease and to help me figure out if I am making the right decision.
I don't think Madison accepted 70 people into the nursing program. But as far as the original question, it's not that bad to get into the program. Lawrenceburg and Madison are smaller campuses and don't have as many applicants as your bigger campuses so I really think your chances are greater at a smaller campus. Get your a's and study study study for the teas and you will be okay. Good luck.
