    yea!!! congratulations...i'm so happy for you. do you know when you will be starting? i think you had mentioned before that you may have to put it off until spring of '06? i am in the same situation. if i get accepted for fall of '05 i will postpone until march of '06. i want to give my youngest a good start like i did for my oldest. she will be starting preschool in the fall and i want to spend some time with her, volunteer to be "snack mom", etc. plus it will be easier/cheaper for childcare. i would start in march, go for 8 weeks then have the summer off. when i go back in the fall, my oldest will be in school full-time(1st grade). anyways, congrats again.....get a babysitter and go out and celebrate!!!! you deserve it.

    i do not know if that is how it works with other schools... i am waiting to hear about an asn program... most schools will send a letter with the wait list letter that explains how they work. we were pretty much told that if we got a wait list/alternate letter to hold on tight and try to get as much done (but not to rush out and do our cpr, health exam, etc) but in most cases an alternate/wait person gets moved into the program. the first requirement of acceptance into the program is attending orientation (runs form 8:30-4 on a satruday... and they do a roll count every hour). if you fail to show up or skip one part you are out of the program no questions asked or second chances... they also have people that will apply to 3 different nursing schools and get into all 3 who may pick one of the other schools to attend... so opening happen very often and seldom are students left to move over to the next year for direct entry into the program.

    good luck! and hopefully you will get into the masters program you are waiting on

    WTG!!!! I was in a total panic today because I got a letter from my school in the mail... I was ready to cry and everything because the applications starting being reviewed yesterday. I figured there was no way my letter would come THIS fast... but it wasnt from the nursing dept... instead from the fin. aid dept telling me that I am over qualified for F.A.... how I dont know but I am. I dont know how I am going to pay for 14 credits and books this summer (I have to take the classes) without the aid.

    YEA!!! Congratulations...I'm so happy for you. Do you know when you will be starting? I think you had mentioned before that you may have to put it off until Spring of '06? I am in the same situation. If I get accepted for Fall of '05 I will postpone until March of '06. I want to give my youngest a good start like I did for my oldest.

    Thanks. After speaking with the admissions department, I was told that if I turn down this slot there is no guarantee that I will get accepted for the Spring 06 semester. I am going to pay the $100 to hold my slot and my husband and I will try our best to work out something between now and the beginning of August. I know that is not alot of time but if I can't make this work, I want to give the person taking my place at least a month to prepare. All of my kids will be in school full day this upcoming school year. I have a neighbor who may be able to put my kids on the school bus each morning. My sister told me if she finds a place in my area before school starts then she will make sure my children get to and from school. I will continue to explore the possibilities. We all know how hard it is to get one of these slots in nursing school. I don't want to throw mine away until I have exhausted all options. Besides, the troops are starting to grumble. I am starting to hear alot of complaints because it's taking me so long to become a nurse. When my husband and I sat down to discuss my going to school with the kids, I never thought I would spend 2.5 years on prereqs(part-time), then another 2 in nursing school. I really thought I would be able to go to school full-time and be done in three years at most. So much for that theory.

    Damn I finally got it for the College of Lake County in IL.

    I guess a 96% on the NLN = entrance.
