Napa Valley College Spring 2021 Applicants

Posted

Hi!! I am starting this thread for those individuals applying to NPV ADN program starting in Spring 2021.

The application window opened today.

I was so stressed at the Post Office this morning! I was able to get my time stamp for 9:02 am. Hopefully I get in! Good luck to all the applicants.

Nice. My post office didn't open until 9 so I didn't get time stamped until 9:05

I wasn’t able to get mine time stamped until 9:03🤦🏼‍♀️ Hopefully there aren’t too many applicants this year

Now the waiting game...

Did you apply to other programs?

I applied to COM and SRJC as well. How about you?

Good luck to all! I was able to get mine time stamped right at 9:00am! I got waitlisted for CCSF but hoping for it!

CONGRATS! Would you be commuting or moving?

I applied to SRJC & Mendo. Didn’t make the lottery for Mendo, but still hopeful. We should find out about SRJC next month and they are selecting applicants for Spring 2021, Fall 2021 and Spring 2022.

I will not be applying to NVC ADN program. I did look into it and talked to a school counselor about it. What I was told, it is a first-come, first-serve for those who qualify. If you got your prerequisites completed, the minimum GPA, grades, and TEAS score, and CNA license then you'll get a spot till they're filled. I assume they'll waitlist a few afterward.

I have met a few people who got into the program and graduated.

If you're applying to NVC, I would suggest applying to Solano Community College too. They're a lottery system, but their requirements are very similar; no CNA licensing.

I would also suggest applying to a couple BSN programs such as CSU East Bay. All the CSU programs are very competitive. You did need to have a pretty high GPA, grades, and TEAS scores. But some programs give you bonus points for veterans, healthcare experience, school attended, etc. They are significantly more expensive than an ADN program; you'll probably spend more in the first semester than the whole ADN program.

If any of you have a bachelors already, do not forget the direct entry programs (MSN and NP) or accelerated BSN programs. These are significantly more expensive than the BSN or ADN.

@Rocky Karpik I would be commuting! NVC and SF are both about an hour from me

Oof! That’s quite the commute but now I don’t feel as bad as my commute to NVC is also an hour (without traffic).

Does anyone know what last years cut off was in terms of time stamps?

Based on last year's thread it looks like someone who sent in their app at 9:03 was high on the wait list and ended up getting in, but I'm not sure what the final cut off was.

Anyone know what the program's schedule looks like? I can't find any info from previous years.

Hi All I also applied for the 2021 ADN program. Good Luck to all !

Hi, everyone! Another applicant here! Best of luck to all; it is such a nerve-wracking wait! I applied last year at 9:04 AM and was waitlisted, but did not get in. I was able to get that 9:00 AM timestamp this year, so I am very hopeful! I hope everyone is staying safe despite everything going on in the world right now.

Allana Finley, CNA, EMT-B

Anyone else irrationally checking this post everyday waiting to see if people are getting acceptance letters?? This is torture LOL

I applied at 9:01am, good luck to everyone!
