I have been looking at Registered Nursing Programs to go to, and every one of them say that it is very competative to get in. One hospital that offered RN program said "hundreds apply each year for the approx. 20 positions available in the class." My questions are Is there some level of exaggeration of how many apply to how many get accepted? What would increase my chances of getting in? I've been out of HS since may 2003, and my SAT scores of 920 and ACT scores of 19. any Ideas?
