I was spring 2012 cohort and I graduate this December. I was actually accepted at other programs and decided on GCC after attending orientatioms at all of them. I absolutely love the program, instructors amd clinical experience. I feel like they do a wonderful job at preparing you for NCLEX and help with job placememt after graduation.

That's awesome! Congrats on your success in the program! That's so good to hear your experience has been positive:) and you feel prepared-that's huge! Are you planning to work with your RN or bridge to another program (BSN/MSN)?

I plan on bridging for bsn then msn and eventually my doctorate since in 2016 that is what will be required for an NP.

40 per cohort usually with 5 or 6 alternates

Thanks for the info! Hopefully Ill get in. I've been trying to get into nursing school for three years (I got into a master's program but wasn't able to go) so I just want to find out soon, tired of the anticipation!

That's my plan too, eventually obtain my DNP. Well, you're almost finished with one step in getting there with the RN program, so you're on your way!

Thanks for responding, can you go into detail about the job placement assistance? One of my coworkers, 1st year, attends GCC for nursing and tells me the professors are so-so, and that its pretty difficult, former A student is now receiving B grades.

Its absolutely tough, but that is nursing school. Don't expect the As to come easy. Theres too much information and 2 years is not even close to enough time to learn it all, but that doesnt mean you won't be prepared. You will feel lost after first semester. There's so much thrown at you and itd a completely new way of learning amd studying. After 2nd though things start to come together.

As far as job placement every professor I know will take the time to write wonderful letters of recommendation and most hospitals love GCC grads. Our school has a wonderful reputation at the hospitals and our school also does interview prep and posts about job opportunities all the time.

I am applying to citrus too, do you know how they do their selection process?

Hey Bsherm,

Did you get a letter from Citrus? I just got a letter that I was selected as an alternate. I am still hoping I get selected by GCC!

Is it LVN-RN?

I haven't gotten a letter yet but I honestly don't think I made the cut. I think I only had around 53 points but I guess you never know. I'll probably get my letter tomorrow.

You never know, so very true...your letter might come on Monday. I only had 61 points, which didn't seem super high either.

Well hopefully I get good news. But like you, I'm really hoping I get into Glendale's program. It's much closer and their pass rates are highter. Also, congratulations on getting an alternate spot, it's nice to know that you still have a chance :-)

Thank you, just stay positive, I am sure you will get good news soon. Trust me after 6 rejection letters when I get the mail part of me is like I don't even want to open it...lol...and I know what you mean, I am still waiting for GCCs notice as well-I would really love to get in to their program plus not have to take the TEAS again for Citrus. What other schools are you waiting on? Did you apply to Pasadena? Acceptance emails should be going out this week for PCC.

Thank you, I hope you're right. I am currently on the waitlisted at SMC but I won't start anytime soon. I also applied at college of the desert, which is my last resort but they prioritize COd student anyway. I didn't apply at PCC (missed the deadline) but if I can't get in anywhere this fall I'm going to apply for te spring semester.

You will, its just a painstaking process waiting. How long have you been on the waitlist at SMC? I'm supposed to hear tomorrow from them if I'm on the waitlist. Did you take your NLN-PAX exam yet? That's great that your not giving up either. It will happen! I hope you get in at GCC for fall! Sounds like you're ready to start already, I get it.

Lol! I've been ready to start! I got into USD's masters program a few years ago but something happened and I couldn't go, so since then I've been so impatient and eager to start! Haha, I've only been on SMC's waitlisted since October and I haven't taken the NLN-PAX yet. I'm hoping to get in somewhere else before then.

Omg, that bites...you got into USDs masters program before and weren't able to attend. I'm sure applications have increased immensely over the last few years there too. I spoke with one of the Deans at Samuel Merritt because I wanted to start an Entry MSN and she said when they started the program in 2007 or 2008 they were practically begging people to apply (Wish I had known what I wanted when I graduated w/my bachelors degree in 2007!) and now its increasingly harder to get in, but the ABSN program is a little easier. Its still a little too pricey to me for an ABSN and the move to Oakland since that's not my end goal. But I can only imagine having gotten into a masters and how frustrating that must be. You're clearly super bright and have a lot of perseverance to reach your goal, its just lame having to rely on a lottery system to get into an RN program, but you will. I keep telling myself when I get in to make a mental note of these days of waiting, I really feel it makes me appreciate that it is possible to get where you want to be...just takes time and hard work. You'll get in.

I hear ya on trying to avoid the extra testing if possible...that's like Citrus for me. I've already taken my TEAS and now I have to take it again...but I just have to suck it up and do it...unless I get in somewhere else before the end of May. (HOPING!!)
