    BSN vs ADN and Residency

    Hello Everybody. My plans have been to enter a two year program beginning in the Fall of 2018. I am recently reading that with an ADN you pretty much need to get into and complete a one year residency program to even get hired by a hospital. In the meantime, over the last few years, I have been working on my BS (General Studies) and have accumulated 88 out of 129 hours. So here are my questions: 1. If I get my BS and then do a one year second degree to get my BSN, will a residency program still be as necessary to get hired? 2. Is the talk of residency programs to get hired, over-hyped? 3. By BS will take three semesters (full time) to complete, and then two to three to complete the fast track BSN (and cost more), vs 4 semesters to complete ADN --- feeling torn on what to do..weigh in with your experiences. Thank you!

    Weatherford ADN Fall 2017

    I have heard it is definitely 6 weeks. I applied; I know I am short on points for Fall 2017, but figured why not? You never know!! I am currently taking my last two pre-reqs, so I only get one point for each of those. If I don't get in for Fall 2017, I will reapply. Did anyone apply for Bridgeport campus? Anyone know the points for previous semesters at Bridgeport?

    Weatherford College - ADN vs LVN - Campus Options

    Help -- anyone? Need info as app deadline is approaching!
  7. I was planning on applying to the Weatherford College ADN program for Fall 2017, but I am starting to doubt that I have enough points. Final two pre-reqs are being completed this semester, so I only get one point each for those. Need one more class to get 3 bonus points. The rest of my points are maxed out, except TEAS which I am planning on retaking. So my questions are -- should I try applying for the LVN and then bridging to the ADN -- this will require a flight to take the ACCUPLACER as I am currently working out of state on a contract job? Are fewer points typical to get into the other campus locations (Bridgeport and Granbury)? Are my chances higher at those locations if I am low on points? A friend told me she got in with 26, but I am seeing others say they didn't get in with 30. HELP! Thank you!
