    I received a letter from El Centro yesterday. I have been accepted to their program at North Lake beginning Fall '07. Did anyone else get in? I'm looking forward to this journey and I can't wait to start!!! Any advice for first year students is greatly appreciated!

    Congrats! There are several threads in the general nursing student forums from other students at ECC/NL. Welcome!

    And yes, the whole grade thing does bite. But, all schools seem to have a horrible retention rate, not just ECC.

    ok so southwestern adventist has done away with their adn program and now only have a bsn program. i went up there today and they do have a lvn to bsn program but when i ask her about when the admission deadlines were she says "oh if you have them in by mid july you should be ok to start in august"..am i missing something here... i thought every nursing program had set dates... i don't know about all this , it cost something like 6k a semester and ill be spending 4 semesters there. that is more than i paid for my house and cars combined....:uhoh21: i still will be short 4 classes and must cram them in during the summer 2 religions, micro- computer applications and a non american history...i can do it but dang....anyone here go to southwestern adventist or know anybody that does....

    Admissions there tend to be less competitive for several reasons -

    The cost - 'nuff said. Many people are very put off by that quote right up front. However, they have (or did many years ago) great financial aid programs available!

    The location - unless you LIVE in that area, it isn't a very convenient commute.

    Long commutes to clinical sites for the students who DO live in the area or on campus. Walls and Huge&Ugly are the nearest facilities, and you can't do ALL of your clinicals there. You have to get up very early and do some driving some semesters to make it to clinicals.

    The logistics are just more than some people want to manage.
