    Hi Everyone,

    I just discovered Deaconess College and would like to begin in July. It sounds like everyone loves this school - that's good. It must be a legitimate school. That was my first question.

    The next one is, how difficult is it to find a hospital where you can do clinicals? I live in Northern Virginia, near D.C. Anyone near me?

    Also, they say you do your science courses at a community college, which is good (less expensive). Can you also do nutrition and developmental psych at a community college?

    Thanks a bunch!!
