Has anyone out there attended VVC school in Victorville and gone through or are currently going through the program that could give me some usefull info?? im so lost and frustrated :sniff: and i would like to know around the usual time it takes to get in so i can work my butt off and save so i can finally get in =[ and oh one more thing. in their website it says they will mail response letters about a month or so after they take apps but does that mean they tell you then and there if you in or not? or is it just letters saying they got ur app???? someone please help!!!!:hdvwl:

I spoke to the Director and even though the college says its in the process of changing the system to a point system/grades that so far its not happening soon. And by soon I got the hint she meant not this registration period coming up. She said they wil still send the names to be randomly drawn out. So we will see if we get lucky! OHHH and she said that its definetly a year waiting list now! So if your names pops up and the class is full, they will keep it for next semester or so on.

I am also applying to Victor Valley. I do not know anything about victor valley

I do not want to alarm anyone but I have many friends who are complaining that the some of community colleges in CA are not BRN accredited.

Some schools have lost BRN accredidation.These schools are trying to get back BRN accredidation.

Many of my friends are in RN programs which lost BRN accreditation. The teachers are cruel to the students. Half the students are failed out of each semester.

These schools need only high NCLEX scores so they eliminate most of the students before the NCLEX and only allow the geniuses to take the NCLEX.

Before I apply to Victor Valley I would appreciate if someone can tell me if Victor Valley is a school where the teachers help the students?

I want to know ahead of time.

Do the teachers know how to teach. ? Are the teachers impossible?Are the teachers fair?. Does anyone know any students who attend victor valley RN?are they telling you good or bad things about the school?thanks so much. i was just trying to be honest and i hope i did not offend anyone.

so did you apply in march 2011? did you get your start date? I was in the same situation but at least it shortened the wait list so really we would have started the same time either way

Since it's so competitive even getting into an accredited junior college program in Socal, I would be more worried about even being able to get into nursing schools in the first place. It's kind of hard to be picky nowadays, that is, unless you have been accepted to multiple schools.. which is very possible, and if you have, congrats

Hi, I understand your frustration on getting into the program. I to, completed all my prereqs in the spring of 2010 and was not able to apply until this spring. I am happy that I did get on the alternate list and can possible start this fall if can get through pharmocolgy and nursing accessment in their accelerated classes over the summer. Everything I have heard about the VVC nursing program has been positive. They have a very high graduation rate and some good instructors.

VVC is a great nursing school. This fall will be my 2nd semester Nursing Process 2 of 4, and although there are rumors here and there about various issues and instruction issues, I have never experienced anything but very knowledgable and helpful instruction. Also, as far as accredidation goes, this happens every 8 years apparently, and this spring semester we had the BRN folks at the campus and it was basically a complaint session for those who aren't doing well, anyway, we have been accredited for another 8 years.

I love my classes, they're tough, but it is a good school. People from all over socal come here because of the reputation and the pass rates. The teachers here really want you to succeed, and have been very available for students.

Good luck!

A little late on the posting, but I am attending VVC, will start NP3 in 9 days yikes!!! From my experience VVC has a great nursing program. When I aplied they still had the lotery system, because of the high deman there are always more students that they can accomodate so they did a random computer name pick. The wait is 2 years but I got called a year earlier than my due start date.

The teachers are awesome, but of course you still have those that are not always so friendly, like everywhere else. It is a tough program. But they have a high NCLEX pasing rate for the same reason that they are tough, if you graduate from this program you will most likely pass the NCLEX, thats the beauty of VVC, that's why their reputation is so high. I understand that they are changing things around though, and now the drawing will be based on a point system. Good luck to all applying to VVC, if you are on the wait list dont dispair, you will be there sooner than you think, and believe me, it will be worth the wait=)

Hi! I am in my last semester of the prerequisites and I am very concerned about the "points system", I have been working my butt off and I have a high C average 2.8 and I feel like if they go the point system that I will be screwed and I have started this process back in 2003! I am FREAKING out! LOL Should I be? I am hoping that since I have been continuing my education into this catalog year that they can not make me follow the point system if implemented. Like when they added classes to the gen ed curriculum I didnt have to take the classes because I was concurrently enrolled....I feel soo close I can taste it, yet so scared and confused about the enrollment process...:confused:

Hi! I know this post is old, but I am just starting my pre-req's at VVC. I am hoping to apply in Spring 2013. The counselor told me the waiting list is 1 year, so I will hopefully start Spring 2014. This is fine with me, but I'm not sure if it is guaranteed that I will be able to start then. When they say the waiting list is 1 year, is it really? I would hate to have to wait longer than that because I am quitting my job to go back to school. Thanks!! :)
