    Yes i agree the cost is higher. Tcc is affordable and i have two young children under 13 so i need to be flexible. For NSU i am missing 1 math class and i science ...Now for ODU its a BSN program so i havent applied yet but considered it. Applied to NSU and sent all my transcripts just need 2 classes and to take their nursing entrance exam then i can apply to the prgram. Only bad thing is they only accept apps once a year . so i would have to apply for 2014 class but its cool. I start TCC's CNA class on Tuesday. Not required but figured it wouldnt hurt and will help with the waiting game and possible networking. There are certain classes that have to be completed before you apply . The others can be taken while your in the program. I rather take as many as possible so i can focus on the main courses

    I was considering taking the CNA class also at TCC this summer. I thought it would give me a little bit of extra knowledge. I didn't know they had a class starting next week. Do you have your CPR cert yet? I need to get mine this summer.

    Yes , the cours is only 6 weeks and they have them throughout the semester. Havent been in a hospital setting in a long time. Yes i have my CPR cert. DId it last summer at TCC. Good for 2 years

    Nice! I think I may end up taking those two classes together this summer then. Keep me posted if you will and let me know how you liked the CNA class. I would love to hear about the experience! In the mean time, we get to hurry up and wait. I wonder how many applications they received this time around. I know a lot of people who were going to apply and either changed their minds or decided to try some place else. Hopefully that will be a good thing for us.

    I will definitely keep you posted. Last semester there were over 200 applicants. I was chosen as 1 of 18 alternates but unfrtunately i didnt get called back. No alternates were called for jan start and 2 were called for the march 11th class. Hopefully i have a better chance this time around. If not i may have to go to plan B ..lol :-)

    Have you looked at Riverside or Sentara? So far I have been most impressed with these two programs.

    @Heathermax...its funny that you mentioned riverside because a girl in my CNA class just told me about it. She is trying to prepare to apply. I have looked into it and may apply there as well. Doesnt hurt to have options :-)

    Sentara is a BSN class, but has just about the same pre-requisites as the ASN classes. I am still working on getting my pre-requisites done, and as of right now I am about 2 years away.. BUT, I am applying for the LPN class, that way I can be working as a LPN and continue TCC for the pre-requisites.
