    ANybody applying to NVCC for Fall 09?

    DC resident, Before I applied, I was a Maryland resident, and was going to have to pay the out of state tuition fee fire the first year of nursing school. HUGE differenece in price... but I wasn't accepted so I spent that next year establishing in state resusency and boosting my pre-requsites. I also even got HLT 141 and the humanaties elective our of the way. I just found out that I've been accepted for this years accelerated program and Im now an In state resident AND I'll have less of a coarse load since I was able to spend that year taking supporting courses that are apart of the nursing curriculum. Hope that helps!!! - Anna

    ANybody applying to NVCC for Fall 09?

    Hey there, I was just accepted into the accelerated online nursing program. Thus far, I've completed all pre-req's, psych, humanaties and all other non NUR corses that are apart of the nursing curriculum. I applied last year and wasn't accepted, so I spent this whole year taking any classes I could that would alleviate my course load for when I DID get in. In the case that anyone reading this isn't accepted, don't fret; just apply again the following year and spend that time taking all the classes you can that are IN the nursing schedule so you aren't crazy stressed when you ARE accepted. Just for the record, I re-took Eng 111 to bring my "B" up to an "A" and re-took NAS 161 to bring my "C" up to an "A", giving me all A's across the board for my pre-req's with the exception of one B. Keep in mind, your pre-requsites are the ONLY thing they are taking into consideration when selecting the next generation of nursing students. Also, traditionally, the accelerated program only takes the top 15% of applicants, so I strongly suggest applying to BOTH programs; the accelerated AND traditional, which you will have to do seperately. Hope this helps, Anna
