I heard some good news about my school application.

  1. The program I am applying to is brand new and the class starting this Spring is their first. Well they just announced all the pre-reqs and such in August with the application deadline in October.

    Well a RN friend of mine was talking to one of the CNA instructors from the same school's Nursing Department while they were doing clinicals at her facility. She was told that they had received 250 applications but only 12 qualified for the new RN program so far (I qualified so I am one of the 12). They have 25 spots to fill. Apparently they are worried they won't get enough people to qualify. They are supposed to be sending out acceptance letters next week so I'm not in for sure yet but it looks good from my standpoint (I hope they don't cancel the class due to lack of students though).

    I think it caught some people by surprise that they stood the program up that fast and most don't have the pre-req's completed. I had done a bunch of common pre-req's and co-req's for RN programs over the last few years and happened to already have everything done when I decided to pursue an ADN and this opportunity came up. Just wanted share, talk to you all later.

    LOL Jess! You've got a spot already, think positive!

    Lance, CONGRATS! Good luck to you.

    I'm sure they will take the next few in line that do not have all the classes yet, just to fill the spots for this semester only.

    Let us know when you get your letter!
