I'm finishing up my last two pre-requisites this semester (Chemistry and A&P II) at Howard Community College. I'm not an out of state applicant but I am out of county. I just put in my supplemental application for the traditional RN evening program starting this fall. I was told by an advisor that as long as you meet the admissions requirements, you should be able to get a seat in the program. Your out of state status only comes into play when the number of seats gets low, THEN admission is granted by in order of priority, with Howard County residents being at the top. If you don't get a seat on your first try, HCC will give you priority the following semester. So, granted you fulfill all the admissions requirements, you will get a seat...just maybe not as soon as you planned.
Unfortunately, I don't have any experience with the clinical portion of the program yet, so I can't help there.
