Wait Lists in Nevada

  1. 0
    Hi There;

    I live in California and am in my last semester of completing the prerequisites for most nursing programs. However, when it comes to applying to actual programs, things become difficult and most programs have waiting lists that can go on for three years, regardless of grades. Are you experiencing the same things in Nevada? My husband and I would be willing to move if it meant completing my education in a better time frame. Any feedback that you have as to the climate of programs and education in Nevada would be much appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Hi Meghan. I too am in CA right now and will be relocaiting to either Boise or Reno soon. I have put a bit of time into researching what it would be like to go to school in Reno. I do not know anything about schools near Las Vegas. From what I can tell Truckee Meadows CC and College of Western NV do not have wait lists and are competitive based. Admissions are based on gpa and score on either the HESI or TEAS test. There is also University of Reno that is based on gpa but needs more pre reqs than a Cal State.
    Cal State does not have a waitlist. I agree the waitlists for community colleges in CA are way too long, the schools need to switch to something else! I'm applying to a few Cal States but do not think I will be able to afford the cost of living here while in school full time since I have two kids to support myself.
    Just check out each schools website and find out their admission critereia. Different schools have different pre-requisites so you might have to take an extra class or two. Also unlike in CA where there are tuition fee waivers at community college and the CalGrants at Cal State, in NV you will have more to pay in tuition, especially if you are not considered a resident. Check to see if the schools you are looking at are part of the WUE to save a lot on tuition.
    I hope some of that information was helpful to you.
    Best wishes

    Hi Meghan,

    Not sure if you still wanted information, but I graduated last year (March 2011) from Roseman University of Health Sciences. They have two programs - both of which you earn your BSN. One of their online program. They call that one their "Accelerated BSN program" and that's 14-months. I wouldnt recommend it. I did their traditional BSN program, which is 18 months long. I would suggest checking them out if you want. Hope this helps!

    Meghan,

    I was looking into Roseman University myself but am now having seconds thoughts due to some post I saw online. Based on what I read it seems that a lot of students get in but don't complete the program because it's so difficult. Is this true? Did most of the students in your cohort graduate with you? I wonder if they were referring to the 14 month program. Have you had any issues finding a job?

    They don't have waiting lists. You just have to keep applying till you get in. They use a point system.. You really need to have all your pre-reques, as well as some of the co-reques & medical exp. to be competitive enough to get in.. At least thats what I've found..

    they used to have wait lists...that is TMCC... 3 - 5 yrs. now (until they change it again) its gpa on your science scores (A&P, micro, etc) I've heard, w a lot of students coming from out of country etc, the entrance rate was about 3.8. UNR is thinking about interviews on top of gpa. heard the entrance gps was 3.7+

    Hi There,

    I am looking into the Utah campus 18 months BSN program. How did you find the program overall? Are the clinicals well organized and gives you enough experience to walk into the real world of nursing? Also, what is the employment rate after graduating?

    Thank you in advance!

    There's no wait list, but it is extremely difficult to get into any program. All of them are extremely competitive, at least in Northern Nevada.
