Hey everyone I am new to this so not sure where to post this question so I will start here. I am currently attending a community college and trying to get my pre reqs out of the way so that I can get on the waiting list there for the RN program. Problem is there is a 2 1/2 year wait to get in as of now and I don't even have my name on the list yet. I am wondering if there is a quicker route or if anyone in knows of anything in Colorado that would get me in school quicker. ... Thanks in advance!
Yeowch, a 2.5 year wait. Isn't that a shame? Near me, near Chicago, there are five different community colleges that I have talked with over the last ten years or so and all of them have waitlists, (I do think I am kind of high on the list since I finally did put myself on one!) Although, it turns out that even though four year universities cost more that they might be a better route towards your nursing degree.
I am believer in attending a junior college to get all of your core courses and pre-requisties done and then transfer to a four year institution to complete the final two years for your RN.
I do not know if you can move to do this but, you have those two years to wait so, maybe looking into this could be an option.
I met a student from Seattle who decided to get the experience of Chicago and chose that as her school.
