I've been selected for "early acceptance" in the RN program at JSRCC, is there anyone out there that is either applying for Spring 2010 or that has been selected early? Also is there anyone who has gone through the program? Is there anyone that has anything else to say about the program (other than the director and her staff). I am currently in a nursing program (diploma) and it is so terrible many wish that they had gone elsewhere, and I am considering transferring. I know the grass isn't always greener on the other side, but I would love to find a school where it isn't all show, where the teachers aren't on a power trip and where the teachers want to teach. My experience at JSRCC had been ok for general educatin classes and the application process has been surprisingly effortless and one particular advisor and teacher, went over and beyond to help me. Please let me know anything you may know about the program!

I'm probably applying for Spring 2010. I'm taking my last 2 pre-req classes in the fall. What did you do to get early acceptance?

For early application you had to have had all your pre reqs completed and a GPA of at least 3.5. I was lucky I happened to have everything in order. Just make sure you have everything completed when you apply, they emphasize the fact that they have too many completed applications to consider incomplete applications.

So is it even any point in me trying to apply for the spring since I haven't finished the pre-nursing classes?

But I will be finished before the spring semester starts.

You have to have the courses complete, with grades. They use that to determine how competitive you are. Double check with the nursing program. There is an advisor and faculty member there that can really help you. She has her act together and will guide you through the whole thing. Don't have her number, but if you call JSRCC main numer and ask to be transferred to her, they will do it.

I attended JSRCC right after high school but quit the program after the 2nd semester. If you would like more detail send me a private message and I will explain. I ended up returning to nursing school when I was 33yo and I much preffered the program there. It is tough but the instructors especially the second year instructor are very approachable and will do anything they can to help you if you are trying your best. The class sizes are much smaller too usually start with around 30 in the 1st semester and finish with around 15 or so. Many people drop out because of family issues, needing to work too many hours while going to school or whatever. During the last year you really become more like family than a class. Not to mention pass rates on board in 07 it was 100% and in 08 it was 99%.

Hi, my name is Charlene I have taken all the requirements needed I am applying for Jan 2010 RN program spring. I wanted to know if for early acceptance did they look at your current gpa or was it the cumulative. I wanted to go and apply and see if I can calm my nerves early lol. So far the school has been great but i have only taken general like u. I found that the teachers are very helpful but thats my opinion. Thanks In Advance

I'm not sure if they are still taking applicants for early acceptance. They look at your GPA that consists of all your prereq courses. Anything else doesn't matter, make sure you've got great NET scores! Good luck on your application process!
