    I might email the admissions director next week, I'm kind of intimidated to do so. Night weekend courses are only in the fall to start. Day students are lucky to have the option of fall or spring. I was reading a book I got at barnes and noble called fundamentals made easy by the incredibly easy book series. It has good info about what we will get into. I always go into the bookstore and read the nursing books in the medical section.

    You should e-mail them, or call the school & ask to speak to someone about your nursing application and they will transfer you over to the actually nursing advsior ( I have done this many times) .. just to touch base see what they think my odds are of starting in fall etc.. That is funny you mentioned B&N I always go there also. I got chicken soul for the nurses soul.. but an informational book is a great idea, ill have to check that out. (Just nervous it might confuse me, but cant hurt to read through)

    I guess it won't hurt to try to contact them. I read the chicken soup nurse books 1 and 2. They were really good. I wish someone else would apply to our thread so we could form a little mcc 2010 group. It would be cool if we invented a study group if we get in.

    Ya, let me know if you try calling.. That would be awesome, I am sure once we start the program we meet a lot of people & can show them this website and get a study group together , I am sure we all will have questions and info to share

    Have you tried calling yet? I went to B&N last night to look at nursing books. I found that Fundamentals of Nursing book: made incredibly easy book! I love it, it seems like a really great book. I have only read through the first couple of pages but I am excited to read it !!.. I know you are not taking any classes this semester but it has been the fastest semester EVER. I have an exam on the 14th then the final on the 17th & then im done w mirco & I feel like it just started(crazy how time flys.) I have to buckle down and study hard for the next 2 weeks then I can't wait to have free time to read this fund. nur book thanks for telling me about it!

    Ur welcome... it is a good book. Soooo I called and spoke with the nursing admissions director and she said I am a qualified candidate but... there were many other applicants before me as well as people waitlisted from last years evening program and they are just about full already for 2010. That means I will get a letter saying I am accepted but I will be waitlisted for 2010 and probably get in 2011! Can u believe that. I wanted to die. There are so many people who applied for the evening program who can't do days. She said the letters are going out in dec/jan with the decisions. So it sounds like I might be accepted, but will have to still wait! Aahhhh I'm goona die.. I could even get a call in the end of the summer saying a spot opened up for fall 2010, or not. So I am really going to be playing the waiting game. This totally stinks. I don't know why they would still be accepting apps for 2010 evening class tho. That will lead people on. Oh well I just have to wait for the letter I guess. Glad u got the book. Good luck with ur final u wiil do good!

    WOW. I really can't believe that. I thought a year & a half was redic.. nevermind 2 and a half years. The waitlist really is getting out of control. I hope that you get a spot!!!!!! goodluck!.. I hope they send the letters out sooner then later , it is driving me nuts , I want to know so bad. Ya that is weird it still says on the website "accepting applications for fall2010" if its already full, hmm. Hopefully you will get a spot or someone will decline there spot and you will get offered it!!

    I hope they send the letters out around christmas, that would be nice.. well I can hope for the best and cross my fingers that I do get in for 2010. Having to wait until 2011 is sooooo long; but I will wait if I have too. Maybe someone will not be able to accept their spot and I can slide right in. Fingers crossed... I hope you get, I don't think the wait was as demanding for the day program. She seemed nice over the phone, friendly but couldn't spill all the hey as long as it says "accepted" on my letter, I will wait. In less than 2 months we will have our answer yippee!

    I know right, the waiting game stinks--but as long as it happens it's ok. Yes, I feel the same way on the phone with her , super nice , gives you info. but not enough.. def. can't spill the beans (I wish.) ha .. Keep me posted goodluck!

    Ok so I just got an email from the admissions director, get this, I will be waiting until atleast 2012 for admittance into the program! She said people from 2007 just got accepted into 2010 classes. She said the 2011 evening class is already picked too so I have a 2 1/2 year wait!! I can't believe this. What am I gonna do now? The day classes don't have that long of a wait so she suggested I switch to days but there is no possible way I can do that. I am really bummed out. By the time I start, u will be just about done the program. Oh man. ;(

    Wow!!!!!!!! I can not believe that! Seriouly!? That is crazy. Was this e-Mail because you called yesterday? ... Hopefully some of the people who applied in 2007 have found other programs and will decline there start date. Since you have taking all the non nursing clases is you did day you could probably do fund nur clinical one am and lab the other? If you switched to days , or is there no way you could miss 2 days of work during the week? The waiting process stinks I'm sorry!!!!! Well get there!!! I think that is rediculous though. So long!!have you applied anywhere else?

    i havent applied anywhere else because no other college has an evening weekend program. i took my prereqs a while ago when i lived at home with my parents in lowell. now i live in danvers with just my 9 year old daughter and myself so i am limited with what i can do during the day. clinicals start at 7am and i cant do that because she has school at 815am. only the night time will work. i do hope some of those people decline, although if they are at all like me, they will still be waiting. i do plan to wait as long as i have to i guess. i hope atleast i get in for the 2011 class... i still cant believe it though, it kind of makes me gives people false hope when they complete the admissions process that they will get in quickly. when i went to the info session they did not mention the wait to be that long. well alot of people will be disappointed when they find out 2010 is full. im sure everything will work out for you tho. day students have an easier time getting in the semester they choose i believe. well i am still looking forward to getting the letter in the mail. that will be proof of hopeful acceptance into the program.
