doesn't unlv have a waiting list too?? ---->> that's what i've been hearing from people around here, but i never bothered to check. i know they've changed things around since 2006, i really don't know what's going on w/ them, but i know they have a waiting list. anyway, since, there's a lot less of nursing schools around here compared to cali. and the whole state of nevada just doesn't spend money on education as much as they should (in general), this includes their medical school up in reno by the way, and there's a lot more applications each year for nursing schools (or seems like it), i think it's harder to get in into nursing schools around here... when i was taking/finishing up my pre-reqs, a lot of people in my classes who had b's in a & p, micro... etc., still take them again the 2nd time around just to make the a's!! --- these are the usual competition... personally, i think "b's" are good enough for me, but the nursing schools around here seem to say "not good enough" more & more every year now! . . . . i'm keeping my fingers crossed, my wish for this year is just to get accepted @ csn for spring 2009. . . . i'm just hoping for a chance, these nursing schools are getting tougher and tougher to get in ........ kris.
well here in california it is true we have alot of colleges. but most rn nursing programs here are very impacted. the community colleges usually have a waiting list of about 2 years and thats for the associates degree. the bsn programs here are very competitive and require alot of requirenments. you are competing with the best of the best. students who get a's in anatomy, physio, micro and other stuff. it is possible to get in but i would like to try for unlv because it is not as competitive and i love that thier bsn program is only 16 months compared to the bsn programs here in cali. they are mostly 3 years. and private schools here are usually expensive like kaplan college which is a 20 month program for your associates degree and costs $50,000 dollars and the program isn't accreditted. i always wanted my bsn and las vegas would be a great place to learn and play
and las vegas also needs nurses and would seem like a great place to live.
