I start on September 1st and my orientation was in June. My orientation was only 2-3 hours long. They gave us our schedules, book list, reading assignments, rules and regulations and a small tour of the nursing department.
At the orientation for my program there were a lot of men, more than I was expecting. I don't think that they look at the sex of the individual that is applying for the program, only at the requirements such as grades. I could be wrong but it seemed to be a pretty good mix.

My sister and I took all of our prerequisites together, we both got into our school's Nursing program for the fall and we got the same class schedule, we don't choose our schedule the school makes it. We are so excited to start the program together! I find that having class together benefits us greatly! Studying is so much easier and you have someone to keep you on track.
My school only takes the prerequisite gpa into account to get into the program and you can only take a prerequiste over one time.
Check what rules your school follows so you know what you need to do to get into the program. Good Luck!
