I don't know anything about the RCC program, but to my knowledge Citrus is the only school that doesn't have the waiting list. When I was there I happened to live about 10 minutes away, but a lot of my classmates were driving 50-80 miles one way just because of waiting lists everywhere else. Right now for my RN program I am driving 40 miles one way.
I do have a schedule conflict if I want to take the Occupational Health NRS100 class. I was wondering if you have any recommendation for Chaffey College? I don't know if they have a waiting list, but do you have any idea how their program is like? I did go to their website;
All the following requirements for LVN Program at Chaffey College are:
2. High school graduation, pass the GED test, or pass the High School Proficiency Examination
3. Evidence of satisfactory physical and emotional health as determined by health examination and proof of immunizations
4. Completion of NURACT 420 and 420L and NURACT 450 at Chaffey College
5. Completion of MATH 401 or equivalent with a minimum grade of C
6. Biology 424 (or Biology 20 and 22), completed prior to application to the VN program. Biology Course(s) may not be over 5 years old at the time of application to the VN Program
7. Current cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) certificate (American Heart Association Healthcare Provider or American Red Cross Professional Rescuers), required each semester prior to entering any course with a clinical laboratory component
8. Current status as a California Certified Nursing Assistant, or completion of NURAST 400, 400L, 405 and 450 at Chaffey College.
I have met those requirements. What do you think should I do other than apply to Chaffey College? Should I keep learning about 20 months at the adult school because I am already starting my LVN courses there (Jan 2007). or should I give Chaffey a try (if not too late to register)? Meanwhile, I kind of want to use my college credit i've done over the past, I mean call me pompous but I kind of felt outcast studying basic Math and English at the adult school. I'm used to a lifestyle such as studying like a real college student cramming for tomorrow's test. Also, I don't want to waste 20 months away easy. I just want to get things done in 12 months to get my ADN and RN license faster.
Ahh! I am anxiously overwhelmed! It would make my world easy if there's a bypass to all the waiting list for California nursing school. Thanks for all your help and advice that were so helpful to me.
