Hi! Just wondering is anyone going to CACC? I am taking my pre reqs there now hoping to get into the nursing program this fall. I took my ENG 101 two years ago and quit without withdrawing and I am taking that over and goin to ask for course forgiveness and 3 more pre reqs will they see the grades from this semester in enough time to decide that I can get into the nursing program for this fall? I am trying to get into the LPN program. If anyone has any advice for me please feel free. Thanks, Niki

I'm trying to get into the fall program. I have 195 points so I'm hoping this will get me in. I guess I should have not used RNDL for my user name since I'm not an RN yet, but couldn't think of anything. "oh well"
Have you taken all your basics yet?

Hi! YAY! Someone finally replied to this thread! I am trying to get into the LPN program. I have finished my math. I am taking BIO 201, PSY 200, ENG 101, and MUS APP now. I know you do not have to have all of these for LPN but I plan on doing the LPN-RN mobility program not long after I work a while with LPN. I made an 81 on my reading compass test and I had an A in math...I have no idea how to do the point system so I really don't know how to do it. If you know how, would you mind adding my scores up. I can't remember my exact high school GPA was but I know it was about 3.2-3.5. Where are you from? Looks like you have a really high score!!!! I will be saying a special prayer for you!

I am from Alpine. I have finished all my pre-req so I'm just waiting for the letters. My husband will make me go back to work if I don't get into the program.
CACC is not the most organized place so I'm a little concerned about things getting lost.
If you can, try to get all your pre-req stuff done first. Is there a reason why your not going for the RN now? My sister-in-law is doing the mobility and she kicks herself daily for not getting it all at one time.
I really don't know what classes you have to have for LPN so I'm not sure what your points would be. I know CACC gives points on GPA as Jeff State does not.
Good Luck sweetie.

Hey! I have heard of CACC losing things so I have contacted the director of nursing at CACC many times to ensure that she has everything. I am going to LPN because I need to start working alot sooner than two years...I have two little boys under the age of 3 and I don't want to put more on me than I can finish. Good luck with getting into the program..I don't think you will have any trouble if you have 195 points, I think only 200 are available. Where is Alpine?

Boy how times have changed........... I went to CACC for my LPN and ADN.... they didnt do points then. ... (early 90s)....... just wanted to say good luck!!!

I'm waiting for CACC, too, already took most everything I could take and have a perfect GPA, hoping they don't lose anything of mine b/c I've already gone in there and made sure they had everything for my file and they didn't have my transcripts from past college or high school in my file....it was in a misc stack of papers b/c it was in my maiden name. I would have DIED if I'd spent the last year bustin' my tail only to have them lose something! If I don't get in at CACC for some reason, I'm transferring to Jeff State for the fall and applying there in the spring.
Good luck, everyone!
BTW, hey Dana! This is Steffi!

It is so great to hear of more people going to CACC. Where are you from? Are you going for LPN or RN? Everyone I talk to is trying to get in the RN so maybe there is room for me in LPN.

I'm trying for the RN program. I live in Chelsea so it takes me about 30 mins to drive to CACC which is still closer than a lot of people I've met there! Good luck w/ the LPN program!!! I'm glad to see others at CACC as well!

I see your name says bamamama, do you have children? I have two little boys under the age of 3 so it is going to be a challenge!!! I am really hoping to get in...they said I should hear something by the middle of July.

I have 2 boys also, and am a single mom, my boys are 10 and 6 so I am a little worried about balancing it all but I know I'll work it out. I'm dying to see if I'm in this fall. I'm so ready to get started and get it over with, ya know?

Boys are so fun!!!! Atleast they will be in school while you are going to school. My boys will be 3 and 2 in the fall. It will be a huge challenge but we can definately do this!!! I really hope and pray that I get in this fall also. I can't stand the waiting game!!!! I definately know what you mean by wanting to start and get it over with. Good luck to you and your family. Hopefully I will be seeing you around campus soon!!!!
