Here's what I can tell you, Albino: yeah, there's a waiting list just about everywhere. And that kinda stinks...but there are pre-requisite courses you have to take before you can get into a program, & those you should be able to take right away...kinda fills that waiting list gap. Plus, you can also use that time to get a job in the healthcare field. A Certified Nursing Assistant course was required of all students entering the nursing program at my school. Very basic course...I think mine took about 6 weeks to complete. Being a CNA is definitely not the most glorious job, but it will teach you a ton about healthcare (things you will definitely need to know in nursing school, & as you become a nurse) and it can be very rewarding. Being a CNA literally changed my life. One more thing about waiting lists: don't necessarily believe the hype. My school told me I had at least another year to wait 3 months before they told me I'd been bumped up & my classes were starting in a month! My neighbor got accepted into her program immediately after she applied because a new college opened a nursing program that nobody else had applied to yet.
That's my summary of the "in between jargon." Definitely go see a counselor @ your school...they'll be able to tell you more about what's available in your area. Good luck!
