Hi there! I just wanted to get myself started in the forum
. Anyways I'm graduating high school, and I'm starting college in the fall. Both my boyfriend and I are planning on becoming nurses. We would love to be able to reach a APN level. We are going a junior college that happens to be right behind our house (very convenient!) where we will be going for approximately 2 years to do our general education and prerequisite requirements. Then we will apply and hopefully get accepted in the nursing program we are applying to. Our first and probably only choice is Sacramento State's nursing program. It's a bsn program which we are aiming for, and we wouldn't have to relocate. The only other 2 programs in the area are adn and they are a lottery system.
Sacramento State is perfect for us ! It's a BSN program and students are chosen based on a point system.
I heard it is very competitive but we will try our hardest and work our asses off for the next 2 years to land our dream job ! I'm so excited I can't wait.
