I'm currently working at three of the local hospitals as a LMSW (license master social worker). So my plan is to get my ADN, because I can pay for that out of pocket, then bridge into a BSN program. I know there's a lot of hype about hospitals not hiring ADN. However, I've worked at ST. Lukes past 6 yrs and they hire ADN all the time. As of matter of fact, they just hired several new ADNs in the ER depart. My gpa is a 3.5 for undergrad and 3.8 for grad. Of course, JCCC ADN program doesn't look at my grad GPA. I meet JCCC requirement for ACT and science reasoning. I have to retake Chem and Bio because I took them in 2001. BTW, I got As but their over 5 yrs. So, I'm enroll in Chem at JCCC. I'm wondering how hard would it be to get in their program? I'm a JO Co resident, so I know this would give me some points. I was also thinking about Penn Valley but was told it could be hard since I'm not a KC, MO resident. Please, someone out there give me some advice. Also, about scholarships as well. Thanks,
P.S., I'm taking a CNA course and will have my cerification by December.
