Good morning! I am a current LPN working on pre-requisites for application to the CCC-NP for Fall 2013! I'm taking most of my courses at Holyoke Community College and hope to transfer to Northwestern Connecticut Community... Read More
- 0Mar 20, '13 by HelenaHandbasket3-4 pts is a lot for a student. I'm surprised. In the beginning of my last semester of LPN school it was rare for anyone to get 2 pts on an assignment. Towards the end it was routine to have the top students take 2 pts and rare that they would get 3 pts. That was on a Med-Surg floor though. We were constantly leaving the unit to go to testing or surgery with our patients so juggling 2 was difficult and managing 3 was a real challenge. Realistically, I love it when my patients are off the unit! It gives me a chance to get caught up and check in with my more stable patients. Thank goodness we don't have to go with them everywhere they go!!!!
- 0Mar 20, '13 by jmc10I'm glad I read this- I didn't realize about the acceptance "letters" this year... I would have been going crazy in April!! I am just as crazy as you are- I check all day long to see if my GPA has been calculated. All of my reqs are showing as met, which is a relief. But I'm still worrying all day and every day. My hubby was like, I thought you would be calm by this point since it's mid-March but I think I am going to be on edge until mid-April!!

Transfers being just that, students who are transferring over to the school, most likely those who have already completed nursing classes and are not entering the first year courses such as LPN's applying for the LPN to RN bridge, or nursing students from other schools who are transferring out of their current school for whatever reason (moving, dislike of program, etc)
- 0Mar 22, '13 by ORnurseCTCT Pixie explained it perfectly. Each program has a readmission/transfer committee. They decide who can be re-admitted, accept or deny transfers in or out from other CT CC's. It's for any student that drops or failed a course. I've seen students fail and return the next semester and some fail and be denied immediate readmission. A lot are medical and are usually right back in the next semester.
- 0Mar 22, '13 by jan286I thought anyone re-applying would get thrown into the pool with the rest of us if they are starting at the beginning. Anyone transferring into the nursing program would not be competing for a spot in NU 101, so that shouldn't affect us. Man, I wish it was April already!!! This wait is killing me! LOL

But if they are 're-applying' due to a failure of a previous class (people do fail 101) or after coming back from a leave of absense, they would probably be considered over any 'new' applicants who want to be in the same class.
