Hi i am currently a nursing student in Buffalo, NY well 'PRE' NURSING i applied to the program which only comes once a year so i applied for the fall of 07, and they can't evaluate my pre req's til the end of the spring semester, the advisor basically told me after my grades and pre req's are evaluated i have to hope that some people have dropped out, if there are not enough openings i have to sit on my tail and wait til next year to apply and i have no other courses to take in the meantime unless they're approved by the nursing department without being admitted into the program. Is there a similar situation going on at CCSN? If i wait til janurary to be admitted fine, i just don't wanna wait another year. Thanks! any help!
I think it's fine that you are looking into where you might want to work, and thinking about your future. Of course focusing on your studies now is pertinent to get there but if you have no hope and no prospective outlook on your ultimate career choice, where will your sanity go? If it is your dream to move and work in Las Vegas, don't let anyone else tell you what you should or shouldn't do right now, it's your choices, your future, your life to plan
not theirs. I mean checking out the job market for when you are done is a smart
thing to do. Are you going to become a nurse if all of a sudden reports show a decline in nursing jobs over the next few years? If you wanted to move to Nevada (lets say you had family here) are you going to move here if your research shows hospitals have already hired all the nurses they will need for the next 10 years (highly unlikely but hypothetical) so go ahead and dream and look into your future. Another thing I wanted to point out is do your own research. I cannot stress this enough. Don't take information off these boards and hold them dear to your heart. I can tell you right now I have read some incorrect information is this thread alone. If you want information on CCSN go to http://www.ccsn.edu/health/adn.htm
There is also a phone number at the top of the website where you can call and talk to someone and get the real information.
I wish you the best of luck and I hope everything works out for you. You are not "only" a pre-nursing student, you've come along way and should be proud of yourself.
