    I've heard great things about the school. Petra you should be able to get accepted. Have you taken the compass exam? It's a reading comprehension exam. Try to take A7P as soon as you can because these are important classes.

    Sorry for my stupid question but: what is A7P??? Ill take my compass on January 4th (hoah, time is running ).
    But - I guess that everything will be fine! I believe in God. That gives me a lot of power.
    Yes, I am sure that Wallace is a great school and the best choise for me.

    I went to Wallace and graduated from the ADN program in 1999. My 21 classmates and I all made great was a pretty airtight program. Is Mr. Ortman still teaching Med Surg III? All his exams come DIRECTLY from the notes. You can't miss there. I think the pass rate was 97% when I went. Overall great education.

    Not having enough students to apply is exactly what happened to me. I was accepted at WCC for spring 07; however, on the first day of class I learned the classs being cancelled b/c there were not enough students for the program. I was dissappointed, but I believe God has another plan. When one door closes another opens, so i'm hoping to get into CVCC in Phenix City alabama.

    I am sorry to hear that. On 03/01/07 are the application packages for nursing school starting August 07 available.
    At present my husband and I are thinking of the possibility that I quit college. It is because of the visa problems. At this time are no visas for nurses available und for a H-1B you have to wait round 5 years. We are not shure that my husband and I are able to stay the hole time. I guess we should make our decision soon.
    I wish you all the best and good luck for your plans.

    Hello, I am in the second semester of the RN program at Wallace in Dothan. They accepted about 120 students this semester and last semester was about the same when I started. Its a great program. You should at least apply, you never know until you try. I was accepted first try so I say go for it.

    Those of us who were accepted into the program get an automatic spot in the fall program. Hopefully I can get closer to home.

    I am just getting started and very nervous. I moved to Ozark, Albama just 2 weeks ago from Charlotte, NC. Economy had an effect on me where my lover and I had to leave due to not having no where to live. I moved down with my bestfriend/bother from the military and his family. I never had as much support like I do now.
    I pray I make it through. Being a nurse has been a dream of mine for years. As a child I told my father I wanted to be a doctor and ever since til this day he calls me Doc. I hope to make him proud of me and my mother. My family period.
    It's good to hear WCC has a high passing rate. I have one friend that told me WCC nurses/instructures do a weed out process. That's one thing I am nervous about. Expecially being a black male. I mean I wonder sometimes if they would be more worried about helping me or weeding me out. Either way I am focused and at this point in my life I never wanted something so bad as this. I know I will pass, I'm just trying to get prepared for the trails and tribulations I must face and overcome.
    I hope to meet a good friend in school, someone I can study with and someone that is focused and determined to pass. Someone that is head strong and someone that can take a little challenge in life. Who knows maybe I'll meet a good friend on too.
