There are several schools in the Greeley area that offer nursing programs. Two that stand out are University of Northern Colorado (This nursing program accepts you based on grades.) and Front range community college in Fort Collins(This is an associates program and it accepts you based on a waiting list) You may even look into Cheyenne, I hear they have a nursing program that has a little shorter waiting list.

All nursing schools in this area are just like the ones everywhere else......2-3 year waitlists. UNC in Greeley is VERY competitive.

Too true! One of my co-workers just got into CU School of Nursing after a two year wait, and she has a bachelors's degree in sociology. At CU, instead of a wait list, you just keep re-applying, according to her. Front Range in Boulder would only offer the LPN program (also after a two yr wait), then go on another wait list for the RN program.

I don't know what it is like now, but my husband went to nursing school (BSN) at Mesa State in Grand Junction five years ago. He had no problem getting in. Of course, he already had a B.S. degree in Science. The program at Mesa was the cheapest in the state for a BSN, and has the best student/instructor ratio.

Smile I will be moving to Colorado and need some advice

I am planning on moving to Colorado this summer in July, so I can finnish up my undergraduates for pharmacy school. I will need one and a half more years of undergraduates at a community college and I know there are many choices for that, but I need to know of a town where I can live that is closer to the mountains but only about an hour from the university of pharmacy school. I would rather not live in the city, and need to have good place where jobs are well paid and the living is nice. I would also like to be where I can rent a house that is in good condition with a garage. please let me know if you have any suggestions.
thanks for your help
