I'm in the US (temporarily) in an F1 students' visa and I want to go to a community college in MD/DC to do my pre-reqs and clinicals then transfer to a university for my Bachelor's. The rigorous training and education that American schools provide their soon-to-be RNs are nothing less than admirable. I want to be educated here to hopefully improve the working conditions in my country as soon as I get back there.
I went to Anne Arundel Comm College but for another major and the nursing program there is tough and they give priorities to RESIDENTS. If I'm on my student visa, I will be last in their waitlist even if I have a 4.0 GPA and high scores in nursing assessment exams.
Howard Comm College is NOT accepting international students in most or any of the allied health programs like nursing, radiology, etc.
I'm now interested in Comm College of Baltimore County CCBC as I've read in here that they do not have a waitlist and that your GPA and TEAS score are what makes you qualified. No waitlist--Is this true? Would anyone know if they factor in residency in the process of selecting students to get into the RN program? Do many out-of-county, out-of-state or international students get in the RN program?
Any kind of help would be very much appreciated!
