I am starting my prerequisites in fall 2010 for nursing at hfcc, i heard the waiting list can be up to 3 years. Is this true? I completed some prerequisite's and i am a 4.0 student. I have a cousin in the program and graduates next month, he said he got called four months after putting his name on the wait list? Is math 074 required if you placed into a higher level math with the compass? Any tips/thoughts about nursing program?

I don't know about the whole getting called after being on the wait list for four months. That means he was called befor all the students who have been waiting almost two years (like me). I was put on the wait list march 09...I was told i would be in winter 11 or spring 11. (I have a 3.78). So yes there is a long list of people waiting to get in and yes it may take up to 3 yrs...but and here is the silver lining in the whole thing: 1. once you take your net and pass you are in, you just have to wait till you get your letter 2. they are opening up a spring semester to HFCC students (this was once reserved for Henry Ford Hospital employees). Given that I believe the wait won't be as long for you as it has been for others. If i was you though...with that awesome GPA I would switch to Wayne State University; they have not entry test to get in and as long as you have no repeats in you pre-requisits than you will get in for sure. Its a longer program though...but if you are going to wait 3yrs you might as well take their 4yr BSN (unless money is an issue)

I've been on the HFCC nursing wait list since May 2009. I received a letter for admissions into the Spring 2011 class, but I had to defer it to Fall 2011. Good luck!!
