i took my prereqs at the community college around here in the hopes of joining the asn program there, but there was going to be a wait of a year. so i transferred to the state college's nursing program which lasted three years. i graduated with a bsn in the same amount of time i would have graduated with only an asn at the community college. the good thing about the state college's program was that they admitted you based on your good grades - not on how long you had been on a list. they admitted 60 at a time back in 1999 when i joined, but have increased their program to twice that with admissions into the program twice a year now because of the demand. tuition is about $650 a quarter at the state college.

it is difficult to get into nursing school where i live also (n.c.) i am so thankful that i was able to get in on my first try. after getting my prerequesites in order, i went ahead and took the psb exam at my school. i didn't feel like i did very well on the test, and i had to wait a couple of weeks to find out if i would be granted an interview. even after the interview, you have to wait while the staff narrows the list down some more. this has been some of the most stressful stuff that i've had to deal with. anyway, praise god, i made it in! i'll be entering adn schooling in the fall of 2002, and didn't have to wait a year or two. i realize how fortunate that i am, and i'm going to do my very best to become a good nurse. i'm very excited to say the least. only about 1/3 of the people who apply for the adn will get excepted at my school, and they don't maintain a waiting list. you have to take a test, and you gpa is figured in also. that's why some students who are trying to squeek by with "i just need a "c"in that class to pass", should rethink their attitude. your gpa counts bigtime. good luck to everyone, and take care. peace. darby

hmmmm....that does make sense. but doesn't it make you wonder why i started with 80 in my lpn class and only 30 are accepted for the asn class?
hope i make it in the asn class!
