    I am a former CARE XIII graduate. Just some advice for those of you going in. First of all, this program is intense and requires ALL of your dedication. You will have classes and clinicals all week including weekends at times. You will have to study everyday and maintain a grade of 77 or above, absolutely no curves will be given, not even for a 76.9, trust me. You will go all year long and holidays will be cut short. Now the good news. This program is totally something you can do. Have confidence and trust in yourself. I had 3 kids, worked full time and went to school and graduated. It was not easy but the students and faculty are wonderful, even if the food is not, lol. You will graduate in 22 months, not 18 as stated. Believe in yourself, remember nothing worthwhile comes easy, and you will be fine. Congrats to those who make it in, and good luck to those who are waiting. I know you can do it!!

    Hey GraceBSN, I was told we should hear back within the next two weeks as they're still reviewing files... I am nervous too, yet ready. Hope this helps!
