As Looking4ever wrote in my previos blog the competition is very tough to get into the nursing programs. I looked at 3 different colleges and found the one that I felt was the best fit and smaller class sizes etc. One college here had a 3 year waiting list to get into the clinical training. Another college was doing a 4 year degree only, I already have one degree and at age 45 I didn't need to be in school another 4 years.....LOL
So the program I choose had a stepped program of LPN to RN in 2 years. That type of program gives you a little more clinical experience and then after the first year you get an LPN license adn can work while you finish school which is what I did.
The school application process went by grade point average, a personal essay, references, personal experiences, and a lengthy application. Then all these were taken and a board of reviews chose what they felt were the most qualified to pass the course. 600 applied for 60 spots and I was fortunate enough to make it on the first try. There were 5 men and 55 women in my class. AT the end of the first year there were 2 failures, and 6 that chose not to go onto the RN level for various reasons but were assured a spot for the next year only if they re-applied. The8 spots for the RN level were filled with LPN applying from other programs or who had been working as LPN's and wanted to be an RN.
All the people made it through our RN class.

By the way I will be posting my grad photo in my profile.
