    OP - you might want to re-think your decision to go to HACC. Many, many students take pre-reqs there thinking that they are nursing students. You're not really a nursing student until they accept you into a clinical rotation, and the spots in those rotations are few. I know several people with A averages in pre-reqs who did not get into clinicals and ended up in a practical nursing program as plan B. At least one of these students was ON THE DEAN'S LIST and DIDN'T GET IN TO CLINICALS. In that track it can take 5 years or more to become an RN. Even if you are accepted into clinicals at HACC it will take 4 years to become an RN.

    You can start at Lancaster General in a full time program and be a nurse 2 years later. If they accept you - you're in. That's all there is to it. You will get a wonderful education from a school with an excellent reputation. It's worth travelling a few extra miles each day.
