At the end of the fall semester I will have completed my Pre-Nursing Cert for Midlands Tech College (MTC). Due to the long waiting list I'm thinking about transfering to Aiken Tech. I have a great GPA 3.175, which will most likely increase once my grades are calculated from his semester. I have thought about applying for the Merit Program and will be eligible June 2012. If I am not accepted to start clinicals for January 2013 based on the Merit Program I will most likely have to wait until Spring 2014, which seems like forever away. Being a mother to two children, working 2 jobs and being a wife my time is very precious. I do the best I can and want to make the best decision for my family. Would it be wise for me to transfer to Aiken being that MTC is such a great nursing school? Would I still receive the same opportunities as a graduate from MTC? Does anyone know what the start date for clinicals is for Aiken Tech at the present time? Thank you all for your suggestions and words of wisdom. I'm deeply torn about this!
