    I got accepted and start in march. Thank you for the info! Is there anything else I need to purchase that you know of besides books?

    In March? Are you already an LVN? From what I understand, for the generic track, they only start in August and January. The main thing is to get the required book asap, because there are a lot of readings and it is best to get started early. The other stuff can wait until you actaully start and talk to the instructors. Different instuctors will suggest different things. We were told not get everything too soon because of that.

    I am not an LVN and I am in the generic program. They did mention that they started everyone at the same time last year and it was a mess. This year, they have a group staring in Jan and another in March. I have started reading and doing the study guides. :wink2:

    I can completely understand what you are going through. I am also a military spouse (hubby is an E-8) and started school in Hawaii when we were stationed there. I had to transfer when we moved to Louisiana. That put me a year behind. I did finally graduate this past december and we found out a month later that we are moving again to the San Antonio area. I my recommendation for you would be probably to do the 2 year program and get done that way you will have your license before you have to move again and then take advantage of the tuition assistanc. Accpet the help from others if they are genuinely willing to give it. You need to take care of yourself too. Good luck.

    Quote from TurtleSoup
    I just finished my prequ's at St. Phillips and I really enjoyed attending that school. St. Phillip's doesn't have an RN program, unless you're an LVN, so you'll have to transfer somewhere else unless you want to become an LVN first. San Antonio College has an RN program with no waiting list. The only catch is it's competitive and you probably won't get in unless you have all of your prerequ's completed and a mix of As and Bs (at least) in your classes. You can apply with a C average and A & P I, but I wouldn't bother They said they get about 1200 applications a semester and accept about 120.
    I am a student at SAC working on prerequisites to get into their RN are soooo speaking the truth about it being ultra competitive :uhoh21:
