    For those trying to get into nrn 18 for the bridge program :
    The bridge program is changing its admission policy starting with fall. You will be given priority based on your score for the advanced placement test. It's not a super easy test either. Plus nrn 18 has a lot of homework. So just be prepared for it.

    I believe sciences must be complete prior to applying. General eds can be in progress. Call SON to verify. The point system is changing and I'm not sure if that still applies.

    Hey, since I'm taking my last pre-reqs which includes micro, does it have an effect on me getting into the Fall 2017 nursing program? The application period is between January to February.
    If your taking micro in spring you won't be able to get in till next spring

    Hi guys, like a few people here, I applied to more than one program, and I'm so happy that I got accepted to RCC. I was also accepted to Mt. Sac. They're both great programs and I need to make a decision. If you had to chose between the two, and distance wasn't a factor, which would you chose? I started another thread, but didn't get any replies. I apologize if this is off topic here.

    What kind of stethoscope were you required to purchase for the program?

    Choose mt sac maybe I can get of the alternate list... I applied to 3 other schools and I only got on the alternate list at rcc.. next semester the point change and it evens the field more for people that are not in they field already

    I'd go to the one that was closest to me I don't like dealing with a lot of traffic and such... you would have a foot in the door for la hospitals which pay more than riverside hospitals

    RCC is closer, but the schedule is pretty much Mon-Fri and Mt.Sac is Mon-Wed with a 3hr class on Thurs, but only in the 1st and last semesters, so fewer commuting days. Thanks

    I would pick the program that has clinicals at places you potentially want to work. RCC has a higher pass rate than Mt. Sac, so keep that in mind as well.
