Hi. I have been accepted to start at Goldfarb in January 2013. I do know a little bit about the waitlist though.
If you meet the criteria for Goldfarb and are wait listed for the term you apply, you will be guaranteed a spot in the following semester. This part is definitely an advantage to the community college RN programs. I was looking into SWIC's nursing program before I looked into Goldfarb as well and the wait is similar to STLCC. It was just too long for me so I decided on Goldfarb.
I personally think that it is a good school. It has high NCLEX pass rates and also has one of the top simulation labs in the nation. Also the campus is amazing!! It looks so nice everywhere and everything just looks so high tech. Many people think that it is too expensive to go there. It is around $50,000 for a 20 month program. However you get a BSN instead of just ASN. So, if you are considering going back to get a BSN anyway, this is a good choice. I was hesitant to pay that much at first too, but then I thought about it and decided that I would be completely done with school sooner and that having a better paying job in nursing (I only make min. wage now), would even out the cost (In my mind, anyway.).
I also know a girl who graduated from there yesterday!! She had a job interview
for the floor she wanted back in March. She got the job and will start in the first week of June. She is starting out at an awesome rate for a new graduate. She has said that it hasn't been very hard for people to find jobs in her class. So that is a little bit of good news as well.
I hope that this has helped you!
