Yea it is like GCC. In fact the app is the same for all of the Maricopa CC's. You just select your choices. I think that it is easier to get into block 3 than block 1. Probably alot of people drop out in 1 and 2. Not sure how long the wait is. I was told that if you are very flexible (i.e., make all the allowed choices -- I think you have 6) you might get in the first time.
How long did you wait to get in at SWSC? I am taking my CNA class there next month. I have done all of my prereqs, except bio 202 which I am taking now so it makes sense for me to go into the RN if the wait isn't too bad.
Yea, the counselor at gateway told me it is easier to get into block 3, she said you just choose the school you want to go to and apply, you don't have to do the "pick 3" and waitlist/lottery thing.
What other schools besides Rio are going to be your choices?
I started my process with SWSC last summer, I think sometime in like June. I took the test, and then turned in all my paperwork. My "start" date is Feb 22, but they are putting the HCC's and CNA in the beginning of the program so the LPN program doesn't officialy start until May. So I guess you could say my wait was about a year. but I am getting a bunch of my RN prereqs done in the meantime so it's worked out.
Are you doing the day CNA class? You'll have to let me know how it goes. I start that at the end of march after the HCC's are over with.
So you must have done your HCC's with RIo? Was there a lot of homework or was it pretty simple?
