Oct 13, '02Occupation: Nursing Student! Joined: Oct '02; Posts: 16This year there we're 125 seats available in my program and i think they said something like 200 applicants. Im not sure how they accept students, it think its based on the entrance exam, or your GPA, i know you have to have a mim. of a 2.50 to get in. i didnt even know how competative my program was untill i talked to some other students. I applied right from high school, like SEPTEMBER of my senior year...maybe they saw how anxious i was!...Good Luck

They are starting a mid-semester class that will take Nutrition, Pharm, Intro to Nursing, Skills II, and Assessment IN 8 WEEKS!!! They will also have 8 weeks of 8 hour clinicals running concurrently. The higher ups that don't give a darn about success are setting these people up for failure. Could you imagine??????
