I am taking pre-requisites to get into a nursing program and was hoping some of you nurses wouldn't mind providing some feedback... I would really appreciate it.
I am hoping to get some honest advice about the schools below and their nursing programs
. I am looking for any and all feedback... both positive and negative. Even if you didn't go to these schools yourself, I am curious as to what your opinion of them is within your profession and how you feel they stack up.... and how well they train their students. Thank you so much.
Middlesex Community College
Thanks in advance....

I have nothing against Mass Bay. But be advised almost every community college has a "WAIT LIST" There are 2 types of Wait List:
1. The true Wait List, you complete your pre-reqs and get accepted into the program in say 2009 (Ball Park). Quinsigamond Community College operates like this.
2. The ITS NOT A WAIT LIST, competitive system, which Mass Bay has (which I don't think there is nothing wrong with it), but technically it is a wait list. Since you will have to wait, if you don't make the deadline to get into the program, or don't have a high enough GPA (I Forgot the requirements, for the GPA but it isn't out of site, its reasonable, Mass Bay doesn't like to publicly post information it seems, their web-site sucks, I will try to find my handouts from the Nursing Info session from Mass Bay). It is very confusing, more community college run like this.
Bottom line is do your pre-reqs, and be prepared to wait a little while.
Massosit has a weekend program also for Nurses.
