    Is anybody else thinking they are going to have to leave the state in order to get into a program?

    Hmm. I got my rejection letter and it said there were 883 applicants. 1067 is even worse!

    I was told by the someone in the nursing office they expected a couple thousand applications; certainly more than 883.

    The guy Milton who works at the Health office told me they just throw out applications that are missing anything, including transcripts signatures, etc, and don't notify people that their applications were incomplete. Maybe 883 was the total number of complete and eligible applications?

    Either way, the competition for NS in this town is stiff. PCC is my last choice, but I'm grateful to have a spot to write the essay, and hopefully be accepted into the program.

    Well good luck to both of you! I hope the right words come to you on essay writing day. I did get an acceptance letter to a BSN program out of state today along with my rejection letter so I'm not completely out of luck!

    YES! I applied to PCC, CCC, MHCC, and OHSU, plus two out of state programs just in case. Northern Arizona University accepted me and I'm not willing to pass it up on the gamble that an Oregon school will take me. I start classes in 3 weeks! If you are at all willing /able to move around for nursing school, I highly recommend it.

    It is all the way in St. Louis, but it is a really great program and they offer a lot of scholarship money through their teaching hospital. I had a 3.8 but I know of people who have gotten in with lower gpa's. There are also different pre-req's depending on whether you have a previous degree or not. It also is a lot faster than any of the schools in Oregon. The upper division option gives you a BSN in two years unlike here where it takes three. I was going to start there in January but ended up getting into RCC so I decided to stay here. I am a single mom and all of my family is here.
