    I just attended the TADN info session at Olympic this morning and wanted to clarify that they ARE indeed admitting students for winter of 2012! It's true that the program has been restructured, and they said they expect to admit around 16 students (35 students applied for the TADN last year and 20 were admitted). Now, students take only a transition course winter course for LPN-RN that is held one day a week, and then they begin full-time nursing coursework in the spring semester. Students take summer quarter as a break and then return to full-time coursework for the next 3 quarters (fall, winter, spring). So, the program is now a 12+ month program. The nursing advisor said they restructured it to allow students who are working while attending school some much needed breathing room because they won't need to take as many credits each quarter now. When asked about the average cumulative GPA admitted, the advisor wouldn't give a specific number, but she did say that it was on the lower end of the GPA point system (included in their app packet). Overall, I like this program a lot and will be applying this week to enter the winter 2012 class! Wish me luck, I think my odds are pretty good.

    I wish they would have picked me. I graduated from Renton Tech. Well they don't close it untill December. I'll keep my fingers crossed. Maybe a slot will open for me. Congrats on getting in.

    Im sorry. I really have no idea. I have just heard rumors but usually those are false anyway. I heard from one person 6 and another 16. So honestly, I dont know. I hope you do get in!! We had to respond if we are going to attend by like the 16th or something like that, so hopefully these last few days they were looking at who said no and going down the list. Ill cross my fingers for you!!
