Hello - I am currently a Weatherford College ADN student and looking forward to starting my second semester this fall. I have absolutely nothing but great things to say about the program! They had a rocky past but that was a long time ago. The current director has been in place for 5 years and the program is running very smoothly and successfully. For the last 2 years, they have had a 100% pass rate on the NCLEX. My suggestion is to look into all the application criteria, find a school that you want to go, and then work towards acceptance. I know from my application experience that the DFW nursing schools
all have slightly different acceptance policies. By that, I mean that they base your acceptance differently. For example, TCC ranks by GPA, then by test scores, etc. Where as, Weatherford College allots points for certain categories (i.e. points for certain GPA, points for test scores, points for pre-req's, etc) and your total points is where you compete in line against the pool of applicants. So while I am quite partial to my school, I would have to suggest that you look into each one and then work toward their criteria. But to say a few wonderful things about WC's program: the professors LOVE what they do - they sacrifice their own time & energy to benefit the student's education, the director is consistently concerned about meeting students' desires to continue improving the program, and the classes tend to be smaller, which in turn, has created a great camaraderie among my fellow students.
In reference to your question regarding the online A&P II class, I had this class the old school lecture/lab way but I have to confess that it demanded so much learning on my part that, in fact, it only benefited me once I started the ADN program. I am not familiar with how the online class works, but I would have to say, take every advantage and opportunity that you have to learn the information now, as it will only benefit you in the future.
Best of luck to you!
