  1. Hi All,

    I just posted a long thread about my situation. Briefly I am in a position where I must sell my home (Texas) and I am exploring the option of relocating to enter an ADN program. I have basic information on several programs and the prerequisites, and regardless of where I end up I will have a semester or two before I am eligble.

    My question for those of you who are in ADN programs in these states; what are the waiting lists like? For the most part I am not getting any information on this, and I hoped some here might be able to tell me how long they had to wait. Specific cities I am considering are Denver (metro), Colorado Springs, Phoenix, Portland, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Las Vegas. Or any schools within driving distance of these cities.

    I'm looking at several options, including staying in Texas, but any input here would be helpul.

    I'm in Clovis, New Mexico. I'm attending the community college here and there is no waiting list. At the most, a person would have to wait a semester. We're about 10 miles from Texas about 85 miles west of Lubbock and Amarillo. Albuquerque has an extensive waiting list from what I understand.
    Good luck!

    I'm in Colorado Springs in the BSN program. We have a waiting list, with the school taking only 50 students per semester (Spring and Fall), possibly at least 100 on the list. For the ADN at the community college here, when I took a pre-requisite course there, they were accepting 60 per semester, with maybe 100 or more people applying (not sure if this is the case now). I last the attended the CC a year ago. Good Luck!!

    The ADN colleges in the Phoenix area are great and to my knowledge don't have a waiting list. In fact, you can apply to 5 different community colleges with the same application since they all are basically the same program with the same prereqs. All you have to do is rank your 1st choice, 2nd choice, etc. and you are pretty much guaranteed to get in somewhere. I was told there was a waiting list at my first choice college, but there really wasn't since I got in! You can choose either the traditional program (2 years), accelerated (16 months), or evening part time.
