here is my dilemma. At my community college, all eligible qualifying nursing applicants are entered into a lottery system. I've heard more than a few times, "expect to not get in your first try"... Why, I'm not sure. According to the director there are no additional merits
so my potential situation is I do not get accepted. Possible solution is to use the free time to knock out either bsn nursing program prerequisites and apply to both programs the following semester in which case I may end up wasting a ton of time on prereqs that'd be waved if I get into the adn program and follow with an adn-bsn.
Or, I can continue my $15/hour job and knock out a few adn-bsn general Ed classes. The risk, however, is that I can only reapply to the adn program and if I get declined again... You guessed it... 6 more months of a bunk job with poor pay.
So... Risk wasting time on bsn nursing prereqs thatre waived with an adn, or risk a second declination from adn while
working only on adn-bsn bridge classes?
