    Wow...haven't posted since May...Anyway, an update:

    I've been accepted for this upcoming Fall semester at Guilford Tech. We start classes on the 17th. I'm both excited and nervous.

    You are not required to have your pre-req's completed before being accepted into a nursing program. But at the community college level it makes you more competitive.

    Do not get discouraged if you are put on a wait list at a CC because that's exactly where I was before being accepted. I was #10 on the wait list and a classmate of mine was #29. She did not have all of her sciences completed and was still accepted into the program.

    Congrats to those who have already been accepted and good luck to those of you who have yet to apply!!!

    BTW...my undergrad GPA was a 2.88. I got a C in both A&P 1 and 2, an A in both general and developmental psychology, a B in Micro and an A in Chemistry. I have 2 years of experience as a NA and I also took a nutrition class to be more competitive.

    Anyone accepted to Stanly CC fall 2012? I haven't received my official letter of acceptance, but did check my admission status online that states I was accepted...anyone else hear anything? I'm trying not to get excited because I'll feel more comfortable once I have a letter of acceptance in hand.
