I think it's a good idea to apply to HCC's ADN program AND other nursing programs
in the area. From what I've heard, HCC ADN tends to have a lot of hurdles to jump over compared to the other programs. Don't put all your eggs in one basket--especially if that basket is HCC ADN. It's a great program (I went there
) but it can get real crazy/tedious when it comes to dealing with the administrative side of things. If you get into HCC, great. It's a good place to learn, and if you choose to go somewhere else, good for you. Just don't get to frustrated dealing with 'the nursing office,' those folks work real hard and sometimes there's just not enough time/resources to cater to everybody. Good luck!
ETA: Your degree doesn't really affect your application status either way, as long as you have the pre-reqs they require, you should have no problem. For the person who "tested out" of some classes. You may
have to take them (not sure what their current policy is) just call them way ahead of time so in case you do have to take them, you'll have enough time to get them over with before the semester you want to start nursing school).
