    You can put whatever value you like on my comments given that I got into PCC, but declined and dropped out of nursing all together. Do you have any volunteer time on record? That might be your...

  9. ITT Tech's New Program???
    Going to a non accredited school is like buying a car w/o a warranty. You can certainly do what you want, but it's not the smart move in my book. Heck, I got into a nursing program for this Fall...

    Care1, Your self-deprecating reply struck me as childish. As for all of those 'important' questions you posted, they struck me as pointless. Why is it important for me to know how long it takes...

  12. ITT Tech's New Program???
    I'll toss my two bones into this conversation. As I've mentioned a number of times, a good friend of mine recruits in the med industry; primarily MD's and NP's. He too, is a former NP. His advice...

    A lot of people merely repeat what they've heard, yet don't know it to be true or not. "Oh well...I heard there's a huge shortage". My reply, "what sort of research have you done to verify this?" ...

  16. What if you accept then decline before classes start?
    Yes, you have it correct. I think I will say OK to PCC, then see what happens. Just wanted to get some public opinion.

  17. What if you accept then decline before classes start?
    This question is specific to PCC. The short story is that a job offer in the six figure range will be coming down the pipeline around mid July. I don't want to shoot myself in the foot and decline...

    I imagine a number of people are like me. I haven't decided to accept yet at PCC. I probably won't until the 15th. Too many things to consider and think through.

    It's not that I would expect Kaiser to make an announcement, it's that I would expect at least a few of those 700 to contact a news station to get support for their cause. All it would take is one...

    Can anyone else confirm this? I put some feelers out, and no one has heard of this. Odd that it didn't hit the news on the first day these emails were sent.
