I'm not sure of how the process goes in the state of Conn. to get into a nursing school or how their wait list are. But I know Mass and the state that i'm in has a lot of qualified individuals who are not getting into the nursing school that they would like so you could imagine how long someone who may be on the low end of the qualifications will have to wait for.

Basically, its getting harder to get accept to schools on the first time you put in your application wether the candidate wants to be in the excelerated or non-excelerated RN or LPN program. So an individual will have to "sit it out" for semester and try getting in a second time. That will lengthen the time it takes to become an RN. I've been looking for a school that doesn't have a long wait list or a school which does not have a complex entrance into a nursing program and it...is...hard.

The schools have all types of exel programs but the problem, as you may know, is there are too many applicants to chose from. And if I read correctly, your basically trying to get through nursing school for your RN in 15 months (the amount of time your husband will be away). I may be wrong but I believe when you start the actual nursing courses it will take about 2 to 3 yrs to complete.

Anything is possible, but just be aware of the possible set-backs...good luck

I do not know about CT schools. In MA your best bet is to go to a private school. All the state schools wait list. Private schools are more $$, but the way I look at it time is $$. If you have you pre-reqs done it will be easier to get in. Good luck, and thank your husband for fighting for us, I will pray for him and his men.
