    I was told we wouldn't find out until after August 19 or 20 when we get tested on our nursing skills boot camp. Then those who pass will later be told which hospital they will be going to.

    I live in Corona so I'll have to drive far either way, but both hospitals have great reputations.

    I asked which hospital I got and they told me Cedars and they said the cohort was small only 9 so I think we are all attending Cedars but either way Huntington or Cedars is fine with me because I live in Upland! Congrats you guys! Glad to meet new friends to go along this exciting journey!

    I have one 19 month old little boy. I talked to a different enrollment counselor today than my normal one and he told me that Im on the list for Cedar Sinai. He said there were about 50 people who qualified for the program, and hundreds who applied but were not as qualified as we were. The first BSN graduating class ceremony will be July 23 in SLC and will be streamed live on their website. He said there is a graduation every January and July and we will go to one of those depending on when we finish.

    I'm finishing up my bio chem in 2 weeks, then all my sciences will be complete, I'm not gonna be ready for the Oct cohort due to financial reasons, but is anybody going to any of the other hospitals, fountain valley, lakewood regional, or los alamitos. Any word on any cohorts after October?

    I think they may be doing Riverside after the October cohort.
