  1. Hello! I am currently a nursing student in California and will be graduating next month on December 13th. It is my plan to move to Colorado in early January and take NCLEX there to be licensed in Colorado. I am just really confused in terms of the "State of Primary Residence" section of the application. I will be applying right after I graduate, at which time my state of primary residence will still be California. But once I move to Colorado (around January 5th- 3 weeks later) I will be surrendering my California drivers license and will be obtaining a Colorado drivers license to prove that Colorado is now my state of primary residence (Side note: I need to get a Colorado drivers license and car registration pretty much immediately after I get there considering my California car registration expires on January 8th). So, basically, by the time I take NCLEX I will no longer be a resident of California and will no longer have the California drivers license that will be listed on my Colorado application. Will this pose a problem in testing for and obtaining my nursing license? Is there any way I can update my submitted nursing application after I establish CO residency? I suppose it would be easier to wait and apply to the CO board after I move there but I really want to start this application process as soon as possible because, well, the sooner I apply, the sooner I test, and the sooner I can start searching for a job. Also, the CO application asks for a nursing school transcript to be submitted. Do I only submit the transcript of the school that issued my nursing degree or do I also submit a separate transcript from the school I attended to complete my prerequisites? I have emailed the Colorado board but the responses have been a little vague, at best, so I'm hoping someone here can shed some light on this matter for me. Thank you so much for your help and for taking the time to read all of that. Hopefully it wasn't too confusing, haha. Regards, Ryan
  2. Thank you both for your responses! Scaredsilly, that is what I've gathered upon doing my research on employment in the area. I, however, aspire to work in an outpatient setting so hopefully I'll have a better chance! Either way I'm sure it will take some time to find something.
  3. Hello everyone, I am hoping someone can help me out with this because I am struggling to find the information I need! So I am a nursing student right now at a locally reputable school in Los Angeles, California and am due to graduate with my ADN in December. The school I'm attending is regionally accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. I understand this regional accreditation will come in handy, in terms of credit transfer, when I pursue my BSN. However, the program I am in is not ACEN (formally NLNAC) accredited. This particular accreditation is not very prominent in CA. Originally I was going to stay in California upon obtaining my degree but some factors have come up in my life that are steering me towards Denver, CO after I graduate. My question is this: Can I take the NCLEX in Colorado and be licensed there if I graduated from a non-ACEN accredited program in California? My goal is to enter a nationally accredited RN-BSN program ASAP after graduation but that, obviously, requires the RN license first. Thank you for any help you can give me! :) Sincerely, Ryan

    Got an 83% on my TEAS. I currently have a 3.1 Science GPA and a 3.5 overall but I have 4 classes in progress (will be done in December). I really hope that's good enough!! *fingers crossed*

    Mount St Marys ADN for Spring 2013

    How's everyone coming along with the application process? Just took my TEAS today. I think I did well but won't know for a few days... bummer! Getting closer and closer to "acceptance letter" time... so nervous- I really hope I get in!

    Mount St Marys ADN for Spring 2013

    The community college programs here in Arizona have a two year wait list. But Mt. St. Mary's doesn't- it's competitive admission.

    Mount St Marys ADN for Spring 2013

    I applied for Spring 2013 as well. I currently live in Phoenix, Arizona and am taking my pre-reqs out here. I've finished all but 4 of them which I am taking now and will be finished with in December. When I spoke with the nursing adviser back in February she said that I need to have all pre-reqs done before starting the nursing program. According to her, we're allowed to apply with pre-reqs still in progress, given that they will be completed before January. I hope that was the correct information! Would be disheartening, to say the least, to be denied and have to apply again for the fall semester. My fingers are crossed for all of you as well! Good luck :)
  9. Hi Kendall! So sorry it took so long for me to respond, I've been sooo busy with class. Any who, it's nice to know we're in the same boat! Did you figure out what you're going to do? I've decided to go with Mt. St. Mary's in LA, hoping to get into their ADN program in January 2013 and then switch to their BSN program after I finish. But they require more pre-requisites than Arizona so I've been taking summer school classes and will be taking on a full time course load next semester just to get all of this done in time. Stressful but it will be worth it! Good luck to you as well! :)
  10. Thank you so much for your responses! I actually finished my pre-reqs for the nursing program in Arizona and am on the dreaded 2.5 year wait list here. I'm 23 years old, 24 in september, and really don't want to wait that long... I just want my degree already I never thought I'd be moving to California but my uncle, who lives in LA (encino hills area), recently offered to have me live with him and go to school out there so I can quit working for the duration of the program. In Arizona I've worked full time and supported myself while taking a part-time class load to finish my pre-reqs but the thought of having to work while in the actual nursing program doesn't sound very logical... . I went to the BRN website and compiled a list of about 20 schools within a 60 mile radius of my uncles house and plan on reaching out to them and seeing what their requirements are. Unfortunately I won't be finished with microbiology until December 2012 and, from what I'm reading, it looks like most schools require that to be finished before even applying? The only school I've found so far where I can apply with pre-reqs still "in progress" is Mount St. Mary's. So there's something else to check into. Gah! So much info to sift through, lol.
  11. Bump! C'mon guys I really need some help. Thank you!:thankya:
  12. I currently live in Phoenix, Arizona and am planning on moving to Los Angeles in January 2013. I'm trying to find an ADN (ASN) or BSN program with no wait list. I have many of the "standard" pre-reqs completed and plan on taking more classes in AZ during the fall semester before transferring to LA. I've already checked into and plan on applying to Mount St. Mary's but would like to have some back-up plans just in case that doesn't work out. It's so difficult trying to find this stuff out while currently not in California. Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)
