Hi There!!

Im new to this site and I am looking at getting started to take my pre req's this summer. A little background on me:

I am 28 years old with an Assoc. degree in early childhood ed and a BA in early childhood ed. I have always had an interest in nursing but never tried prusing it til now. I had preemie twins in Sept. of 06 and my kids spent 40 days in the NICU. I was so intrigued by everything and took as much of a role in thier care as I could. I would LOVE LOVE to end being a NICU nurse.

Im only looking at getting my associates right now and I was wondering what schools you all went to?

Im looking at Wayne County Commuity College and I am going to the informational nursing prgram seminar next week. I just was seeing if anyone on here went to that shcool and what your thoughts and reccomendations are? I am also looking at Macomb but it seems that WCCC takes double the amount of students per year.

Or if anyone has any rec's on any other schools where I can get my assoc. in nursing would be great!

Thanks!

I didn't go to WCCCD but I did go to HFCC. I would recommend HFCC. Very hard program, but well worth it. I don't know what WCCCD and MCC programs are like. You could also try Oakland County and Washtenaw county, commnuity colleges both have ADN programs.

I am finishing my pre-reqs at wcccd and preparing to apply for the spring nursing program, i really enjoy attending wcccd and have came across some great teachers who have taught me a lot. The admission into the nursing school is competitive but on the upside there is no waiting list. Hope this helps and good luck.

Hi, If you already have a degree then you are eligible for (and may be interested in looking into) the "second bachelors" programs. Eastern Michigan University, University of Michigan, and Wayne State all have these programs. I am sure there are lots of others. Best of luck!

I would definitely look into the 2nd degree program if you already have a bachelors. 1 year and you have a BSN. It's a rigorous program and not for everyone. But it may fit what you are looking for. U of M has one, Eastern, U of D Mercy, Oakland Univ, Mich State, Wayne. I am attending Oakland Univ currently.
