    Sept. 17th at 10am and 3pm for Anderson info sessions.

    Last I knew, Anderson and maybe all the other East Cental locations only have RN programs starting in the fall each year. You definitely want to check if you were planning to apply for spring. I was very surprised to learn that, because I went to an Anderson info session with intentions to apply there for Spring 2010, but then they said they only have the program in the fall. So, I will only be applying to Indy. I think New Castle did have an RN Spring program but I think they said this past Jan. was the last one to start in spring. Not sure on that.

    In any case if you were thinking of applying to any East Central campus for Spring, call to find out if they even have a spring program. I think it should be listed on their website for pete's sake!

    I went to the info session in March 09 and I plan to apply in April 1st, 2009 deadline. The RN program starts in the Fall 2010. You are correct - there are no Spring 2010 RN program, that's just when you APPLY.

    LOL that might have been the info session that kgle and I went to as well! I just was surprised to learn that they don't even have a Spring RN program. It doesn't say anywhere on the website that they don't, which I think it should. I was totally planning on applying to Anderson for Spring until I found out they don't even have one.

    Nevermind Looks like I can't make it, even though it wouldn't matter to miss the first class since I have already taken the class, but I am trying to be responsible! Chris, if there is any new information make sure to let me know!

    Well that info session was a waste of my time at least. The Admissions rep and Career Services rep spent over an hour talking. . . and dumb people would ask specific questions for their personal situations. . . I had to leave early to get home and the nursing part was only halfway done. I've been to other info sessions where the whole thing only took about an hour! Sheesh.

    So Kim/MistyMiss, did she talk any more about mandatory summer classes for those starting in January? That's the whole reason I went, to find out more about their new summer offerings. Grrrrrr. Oh well I was glad to meet you! I hope we both get in for January!!

    The only other information about the Summer session that I recall, was that it was half time. I took that to mean 6 or 7 credit hours. She may have defined it more, but my brain was melting down at that point. It is a shame that they took that much time to explain the admissions/career services stuff. I am thinking that they do that to cut down on the Q/A session, unfortunately with today's group, it just added to the time. They spent an hour explaining the basics, just to have to answer basic and/or personal situation questions for another half an hour! Gotta love community college, "Better late than never"!

    It was so great and so fun to meet you Chris I am very much hoping we both make it in also and are able to share in our journey!

    I went to the info session back in July and felt that it was a waste of time due to the large number of people asking questions regarding their personal situations. I did not find any new information that I hadn't already obtained on my own from either this site or by reading the nursing handout/FAQs. I might attend another one later this year just to make sure I didn't miss anything...the people around me kept talking to each other the entire time about the silly questions they were going to ask. I know no question is a silly question, but had they been paying attention or did a little reading prior to raising their hand they would have had their answer

    Hello all,
    I am new to this forum but I do have a question for those of you who have applied at multiple campuses I am applying PN only at Fort Wayne, which is currently my home school. I would like to also apply at South Bend just in case. My question is would I have to apply for admissions first at South Bend before they would accept my application. I called and talked to someone in admissions and she seemed to think that if I applied at SB that it would screw up all my classes, financial aid, ect.. at Fort Wayne. I have tried calling other people (Director of Nursing program, Program Assistants, ect..) at SB but all I am getting is voice mail. If someone could shed some light on what I need to do I would greatly appreciate it... SB has an info session tomorrow morning so I need to decide what I am doing. Thanks so much!!

    i felt the same way at the info session i attended in march. it seems that the program director needs to announce in the beginning that if you have personal situational questions, see them after to talk about your personal situation or set up an apt with an advisor - otherwise it's not general info and it is not benieficial to the group as a whole. such a waste of time! i would also suggest that people read the hand out (readily available at the nursing dpt) beforehand then come with silly questions. yeah and some questions were very silly
