So, I am feeling kinda defeated right now. I was trying to do everything I could to get into the Penn Valley RN program next Fall but to get enough points to have a fighting chance, I need to get my CNA. I cant find any CNA programs that would have me done in time that fit my schedule so my earliest chance of being able to start the RN program is Spring 2012. I was thinking that by that time I could have my AA done at MCC and go to Graceland or UMKC for my BSN and be done by the same time I would be done with my ADN at Penn Valley. I just don't know anything about the programs at Graceland or UMKC. Does anyone know if either of the schools admit Nursing students in the spring semester? Are the programs difficult to get into? Also, Which school is least costly? Any answers would be greatly appreciated!
