Getting ready to apply: CT Community Colleges- Nursing Program 2013 - page 18

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... Read More

    I'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!!

    What do you mean "deadline for re-admit/transfers"?

    Re-admits are probably people who took time off for whatever reason (medical, maternity, personal reasons etc) as well as those who may have previously failed a class and are now being re-admitted b/c the class is now available for the person to retake.

    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)

    Readmits are people who have not taken a class at the school for at least 2 years.

    CT 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.

    Oh you meant readmission into the nursing program. I thought you meant readmission into the school.

    I 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

    If they are re-applying because they didn't get in with their last application, they would be in the pool with the rest of the applicants.

    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.

    Does anyone know how many spots there are in the community college nursing programs. I applied to Gateway and just checked their course search for Fall 2013 and in Nurs 101 it shows 48. Does this mean there is only 48 spots? I'm really not sure if I'm reading the course search correctly. Any insight would be great.

    NAM2bRN: I just checked, yes it says 48. Not sure if that's all they accepting...some colleges, such as Norwalk, accept about 100 students, but divided into 2 semesters. so 50 start in the fall, another 50 in the spring. they all get accepted at the same time, but are assigned to one semester to start. It is not many. My NVCC accepts 125, but we went down to 108 (now in NUR 102). People drop out quickly, and some fail. The problem is when you're first admitted to NUR 101, some of the people that withdrew/failed NUR 101 are trying to get back into the program...so the actual number that they're accepting is lower
    Good luck to everybody! I'm wondering if you know of anyone who received any ineligible letters...

    NAM2bRN,

    It should change to 96 students before you register, I'm sure it just wasn't changed from the current system. Gateway will no longer have students in NUR 101 start in the spring, all students accepted this year will start at the same time (fall).

    NurseWannabe86 & StudentnurseCT: Thank you for the replies. Wow I didn't know Gateway was only doing a Fall Semester, because the Application said 2013-2014. This Spring 2013 semester must be the last that they are having because I know that there is a Nurs 101 Spring class going on now. When looking at the Course search I know the first three days & times listed are for the lecture & clinical times, but what are all the other days & times listed? These programs are very competitive. I am so nervous but I remain positive.
