i attended a school abroad for my first year at WWW.IUON.ORG and then an affiliated school in the states for my second year. There was no waitlist, the school is a little pricy but I finished in 20 months. I thought it outweighed the cost and the time of waiting around to get into a program. I graduated last August and I am currently working in the ICU in a new grad program. Let me know if you want information about the school.
- Jan 31, '08 by StigmaBusterRNI'm not sure how the whole "out of state" thing factors in, but if you have your prerequisites done, there is no waiting list at either Washington State University/Intercollegiate College of Nursing or the program at Spokane Community College. As for reputable, my nursing school(just graduated Dec 07), WSU/ICN, has the highest NCLEX pass rate in the state, hovers around 95%-99%. Scc is a two year degree, WSU/ICN is a bachelors degree. Hope that helps.
I forgot to mention that there is no waitlist provided you have a high GPA and interview. My school is moving to a larger, state of the art building this year, so our enrollment will be increasing significantly.Last edit by StigmaBusterRN on Jan 31, '08 : Reason: forgot something

there are several options depending on your current situation.
adn: visit wa state board for community and technical colleges
this is a listing of all the ccs in washington by location. there are even links to each college's website. i live in the south sound (olympia) and i know that pierce college and south puget sound community college do not have waitlists- they rank their applicants strictly on prerequisite gpa and offer admission from the top-down.
accelerated bsn: none (yet).
traditional bsn: university of washington, seattle university, seattle pacific university, pacific lutheran university, washington state university, gonzaga.
direct-entry msn (if you have a ba in a non-nursing field): university of washington (mepn), seattle university (apni), pacific lutheran university (elmsn). note: these programs take about 3 years and will run you about $65k total.
a great resource for school information is peterson's nursing programs, 2008. isbn 9780768924121. you can probably check this out at your local library. i don't believe it has adn info, but it's got some great info for all other schools, broken down by state.
i'm currently weighing my options and have been looking into several of these programs, so if you have more questions, i'll try to help you out. i've been accepted to 1 direct-entry so far, but am seriously considering going for my adn, then completing an adn-msn program possibly at plu, uw, or wsu. going this route would take about a year longer, but will save about $35k, so it's definitely worth looking into if possible.
good luck, you definitely have a lot of options!

Most of the community colleges (WCC, EVCC, SCC, and others as well) as well as UW, SU, SPU, dont have waiting list.
- Aug 10, '09 by sue19hey i would be intrested in that could you please give me some more information on that.
- Sep 1, '09 by NastassjaYakima Valley Community College in Yakima has a great ADN program. Half of my class has relocated from other areas of Washington to pursue the degree. The clinicals are great, the class size has been no more than 23 and they have a great NCLEX passing percentage. The only down fall is the city you'd have to get used to, there is good and bad about it, but you can say that about any other city. It's home to other medical programs like WSU's BSN satellite program, UW's physician assistant program and the new Pacific University of Health Sciences. There isn't very much to do there, but it's helpful when all you have time for is studying. I'd highly recommend it.
- Feb 23, '10 by ceciliadixonI am new to Spokane, just moved here Dallas a couple months ago. I have already applied with SCC and have an appointment with Georgeanna on Monday. I have my BS in Biology and have taken all the pre-req's; however I just decided to go for nursing and it has been a few years since I have taken some of the classes like Human A&P etc... any information you think I should know would be great
I was told by Amy that there is a year and a half waitlist, but that I would go before the students finishing their classes this semester as long as all of my information was in by March 29th. I want to keep all my options open and apply to other schools as well because some of them do not have waitlists, but they do require you to be a certified nursing assistant.
Does anyone know where the offer CNA classes in Spokane? How much these cost etc... Should I be studying for the TEAS test?
