I'm a recent grad of the SPC Nursing program. The information below may help you out.
1. Your GPA is calculated from nursing school
pre-reqs only. (Go to the HEC Website and there is a GPA calculator) Getting and A in Sociology doesn't help your GPA, you need good grades in the classes that count.
2. There is no waiting list for the traditional RN program, basically highest GPA's get in other do not. If you have a 3.7 or higher you've got a pretty good shot.
4 Program is four semesters and there is only a full-time option. Between class and clinicals you'll be "in school" four days a week.
5. LPN transitoin program is three semesters (those students have one semester by themselves and then they are blended in with students in the regular program for their last two semesters.
6. My understanding is that there IS a waiting list for the LPN program and that it's NOT AS competitive as going the traditonal route but I could be wrong.
7. PTEC doesn't have a whole lot of pre-reqs for their LPN program but you'll still need to have ALL the SPC required pre-regs done before you can begin the transition program.
If you decide to go the LPN route you have a few options: PTEC, Galen, Ultimate Medical Academy... and a few others. Note many of these will be expensive and I really don't know how good their programs are but they can get you an LPN license which is what you'll need.
