i really want to be a nurse. those of you from north carolina:is it possible to become an rn by going to gaston college for two years?
i became a member to get a feedback from certified r.n.'s because that is what i want to become. any advice or help you can give in becoming an rn would be incredibly helpful.

I am not familiar with Gaston College, but there are many community colleges that offer nursing. Have you considered Gardner-Webb University? It is not too far from Gastonia and they have a nursing program. There are colleges in Charlotte too---CPCC, UNCC, Queens, and probably others. If you want to be a nurse, go for it.

Gaston has a very high pass rate for NCLEX so I wouldn't discount them.
And don't bet on getting a ADN in two years from anywhere, including the pre-reqs, most programs run about 3 years or more.
Like the other poster said, you could go to Central Piedmont Community College — Central Piedmont Community College
, UNC Charlotte - Home Page
, Queens University of Charlotte
, Gaston College - Home
Or you could go to North Carolina Board of Nursing
for a listing of the schools.
