I am contemplating applying for the spring 2015 program. The open enrollement opens in Feb 2015 is that correct? Im hoping to get in to a school next year, I just completed all my pre-reqs. Have you applied to anywhere else Luv2Fly22?

The application period is in progress right now for Spring 2015.

I am applying everywhere I can ;)

Where do you live? I live in fairfield and am applying to PUC in napa, santa rosa jc. I would love to apply to american river however by the end of the enrollment period i wont have my current nutrition class completed which is a total bummer. I also heard that san joaquin deltas open enrollment is approaching soon. I hope we both get into a nursing school next year.

Deltas application is already open and I think it closes in one week so if you are applying make sure you so it soon! I also applied to csu chico on a long shot and delta. My points for delta are 77, for ARC are 85, and for chico it should be 89 but I'm worried about my cumulative gpa because they use nursing CAS at chico:/ I got into the ARC program for this fall but didn't accept as I wanted to try for chico. Now I'm kind of regretting it since it's lottery :( what are everyone else's point totals?

how do the point totals work?

Google search ARc nursing and it should take you to the page with all the info. Points are under the point criteria form, but it's pretty much the same as most schools.

The points criteria form that you fill out will let you see if you meet the minimum entry criteria. The majority of the points are made up of GPA and TEAS values. There are other areas you can add points if you meet those criteria as well. Just know that once you're over the number of points to be considered a qualified applicant, it doesn't matter as much whether you blow out the points or you just barely squeak over. A qualified applicant is a qualified applicant and you'll be subject to random selection, and if selected, which semester you'll start.

If you're not selected anywhere this time, as soon as you're able to reapply, do it. It took me 4 years to get into a program and I was qualified each and every time I applied.

Omg it took 4 years?? I'm really regretting not taking up my spot at the ARC program this fall now lol I wanted to wait so I could apply to chico too but now I'm probably just going to do one of the community college programs and do a bridge program after.

Yes, it took me 4 years. That was under the "old" application system which is very, very different from the system that's in place today. I ended up going to SCC but I was also selected for ARC for the very same semester. SCC's process is very similar to ARC's and most of my classmates that I graduated with got in during their first or 2nd application cycle.

I'm not saying you made a poor decision as it was probably the right one for you at the time. Just apply and keep applying at every location you're qualified for (and can afford) until you land a seat. If it's an ADN seat, fine... you can bridge later, though it knocks you out of consideration for BSN-only jobs for about a year after you graduate and begin your BSN upgrade program.

Ugh I know the whole magnet status fad is annoying, it's unfair to those who do get your bsn because the pay increase from adn to bsn is very minimal (under a dollar at most places). I applied to delta community college in Stockton also and they admit the top 90% on their point scale and only do lottery from the last 10% so I should get in there if I don't get into ARC. What sucks about chico is nursingcas doesn't follow the losrios forgiveness policy for repeated classes so my cumulative gpa, including the grades of the courses before repeating them, are added to your gpa:(. I had 90 pts which would have guaranteed me a spot in their program but they require a min 3.0 cumulative gpa and without the forgiveness policy mine is only at 2.8. Wish I'd known that before I paid to apply, have my transcripts and teas score sent :(.

Hello, I am applying for Spring entry as well. Have any of you done the language proficiency verification form? It says community member, who do they accept as community members? Do neighbors count?

Hmm I haven't done it because I doesn't pertain to me, but if you are unsure just give the nursing department at arc a call. They are more than willing to help:)

Great will do thanks :)

Oh all this waiting for nursing school! Hope we all get in somewhere soon! Where else have you guys applied?

I know I'm trying to study basic nursing stuff to get a head start for when we start! I applied to arc delta and chico and my best friend also applied to all 3 :)

Knowledge is power.

I'm applying..I applied last semester too and didn't get in the lottery. I am hoping the second time is the charm!

Does anyone know how long the application process takes to go from qualified applicant to whether or not we've been selected?

I think according to other threads I've read on all nurses we will find out around November 25th
