I never know how to really start a thread, as replying it so much easier...
Except as of late I sorta found myself in a predicament and realized that maybe someone's been in my situation (or something similar)? Currently I'm attending RCC in CA - I've been going there for a year (a total of 50 something units/credits) and was told that my registration date would improve the more units I completed "successfully" at most I've had A's and B's with one C' in electrical. It has or the most part, prior to starting (I was a returning student) my registration date was 2 weeks before class started (which was insane to get any classes period.) Now it's about a month, but even so..
Yet I still can't seem to get into any science courses: microbiology, chemistry, a&p. Which as you know, are the pre-req's you need before you can apply to the nursing program. In the beginning I was content doing LVN, but I still need a NVN-50 class. Which I'm 18th on the wait list for. So here's hoping I get that.
I feel like I can't even get these classes and I'd still require one or two of them if I hoped to transfer, so I'm -stuck.- I currently work as a CNA but don't have enough experience to challenge the board (I'd still have to have hospital and I work in an LTC). So what I'm basically asking is - what are my options? I don't want to be in a CC forever, just so that I can even start a program, in which that too would take up time.
Thank you in advance for any ideas/knowledge you might have.
This is how it is in California. budget cuts, bankrupt state, less classes offered. Instead of focusing all my energy on studying, i'm over here stressing and using all my energy on trying to enroll in a class just to take it for prereq!
I thought it's probably a little bit more easier to get classes in cc. Nope, no chance.
Try a private, dish out some money if all fails.
