    One of the people on here said she called admissions and they told her we would not be getting letters until October. I really am hoping she was wrong. But she said they told her that the board does not meet during the summer to make any decisions.

    I left the comment about letters not going out until late September/early October. I spoke to admissions last week (July 10) and she reconfirmed that no decisions would be made until the Fall and that letters would be going out late September. I'm sorry I was hoping that we could find out this summer too.

    I am taking classes this Fall at Delgado City Park Campus. I'm taking Jazz Appreciation, Medical Terminology I, and Trigonometry.

    After speaking with a few friends who are taking classes at Charity, the classes they told me to try and take was Medical Terminology (I and II) and Dosages & Calculations.

    I did the same thing on my HESI and scores reflected it. I will be attending Charity Fall 2012. I'm so scared of this new curriculum they are starting this semester. GOOD LUCK!!!! I will see you in January.

    I will be attending fall 2012. We were told they only took 130 because of the curriculm change and a lot of students withdrew last semister so there were 25 spots for those students. If the transition goes well I think they will be accepting 300 again.

    What changes are they making to the curriculum?

    @Shawn39, CARE is a program at LSU. It's an accelerated BSN program for people that already have a Bachelor's degree. It's really fast paced and rigorous though because classes are shorter time periods but you may be in classes for like 12 hours a day and there's not much of vacation breaks at all. I was interested in it but being a single mother I'm not sure if I can commit to so much time plus I don't my GPA to suffer. But I think it's a great idea, if I were younger with no children I think I would probably apply to the program.

    So you live on the Westbank too? Where on the Westbank? I live in Algiers. If I get in to Charity in the spring I would LOVE to know someone that is a little further along in the program to recommend teachers and clinical locations and whatnot. Right now I don't know anyone that is in nursing except the communication that I have on this forum! Where are you taking your clinicals at?

    Hi, I applied for Spring 2013 also. I have been anxiously waiting for a letter because online it said they would be mailed mid July. I just got off the phone with Charity. The lady that answered the phone said that the letters wouldn't be mailed out until SEPTEMBER ! !! ! ughhh....really? I asked her why it said mid July online. She said she was aware of what it said online but they wouldn't be coming out until September ..:uhoh21: BUMMED out now !

    Why wouldn't the committee meet during the summer for this. I think this is pretty important. Don't they know how anxiously waiting all of us are. Now we have to wait till September. This is ridiculous

    I'm not sure why they wouldnt meet During the summer. They need to correct the website saying that the letters would be sent by mid July. Def got my hopes up
