I'm attempting to gather information about various Nursing programs
here in Florida, and I have my eye set on pursuing the one offered by CFCC.
There is an information session that that particular community college offers which I'll be attending in upcoming weeks; but before I do so, I would like to ask anyone who should like to respond a two point question.
It's my understanding (based on, yes, double- and triple-hearsay), that CFCC currently has a waiting list of (about) two years. I also believe, according to a particular academic advisor, that there are going to be admissions changes being made, primarily focusing upon extra pre-req classes and a higher stat standard, based on GPA and an admissions test.
So: i) What is the CURRENT process of admission to the ADN program offered by CFCC? Is it primarily "first come is first served?" and ii) IF the admissions process were changed to reflect the above changes, for the purpose of weeding out "less" qualified (motivated, hard-working, etc.) students, do you believe the waiting list would be reduced significantly?
I, like many other students who desire to be an RN very strongly, find it to be very frustrating to wait a very long period of time before beginning core Nursing studies. The ratio of prospective students to available seats is high to low, so, although it is understandable that the wait is long, it is not acceptable that the criteria should be based on time of application alone.

It seems DBCC has a LOT of Liberal Arts classes you are required to take for the general education portion of their ASN. I've never seen "Art Appreciation" listed as a pre-requisite for successful completion of Sciences degree. That's very interesting!
Do you know what the status of a wait time is for this college?
(It seems excellent by the way.)
Edit: reading DBCC's information on their ASN program more clearly, OBVIOUSLY, you don't have to take all of the Liberal Arts classes they list; they are merely to be considered as potential options. Woops! :imbar
