Fall 2011 Victor Valley College RN program Applicants

  1. I am applying to VVCs fall 2011 RN program in March and I was wondering if anyone else was in the same situation as I am? I have heard that there is a definite waitlist of a year and I have also heard that it's a lottery pool?! Can anyone tell me how the applicants are chosen and if anyone has gotten admitted before a year of waiting?

    I am. I also applied to RCC last month but VVC is also one of my top choices and I would hate to be on a waitlist forever! Once I complete my RN license, I am going to apply to LLU for my BS (to save $) and I heard LLU isn't as hard as many others...it's just a lot more expensive!

    You should apply at Chaffey College too in Rancho Cucamonga, it is a random lottery and you might get in on the first try! As far as VVC i'm not sure about the waitlist, have you spoken to a counselor?

    I'm applying this month too. I went to the informational meeting last month. A new director took over the nursing program @ VVC last year and got rid of the fall application in the fall of 2010 to try and reduce the wait time. From what they said in the meeting, it worked. This year there will be two application times again, one in the spring and one in the fall. However there is literally no wait time right now. In fact they're going to be selecting anywhere from 5-15 people from this spring application to start in the fall because they have a grant for the fall class and don't have enough students to fill it yet. The students will be selected by random draw, alternates will be chosen for back ups for the fall, and the students that don't get in will definitely be in by Spring of next year from what they were saying in the meeting. Pretty much made my year. Hope this helps .

    Cool, we will be in it together. I think I am one of the oldest guys in the room. I was up front in an orange shirt. Maybe see you for uniform fitting today, but for sure in class next week.

    Since you were at the most recent informational meeting, maybe you can help me. When I attended the meeting last year one requirement was that 24 credits of prereqs be taken at VVC. Has that changed or is it the same? I feel like I am wasting my money retaking all these classes that I already took at Chaffey College. Thanks in advance if you can answer that

    That is correct. The following is from their web sight:

    Completion of 24 or more units at VVCC and/or Barstow Community College. These units must be from the prerequisite sciences and/or the general education courses as listed (excluding the Biology and Chemistry prerequisites to Anatomy, Physiology, and Microbiology).
