DTCC nursing students!!

  1. Hello nursing students!! I am wondering if there are any DTCC prospective nursing students here? I am applying in August to Stanton's program! Anyone else? If so, how are you doing on your ranking sheet with points? And have you taken the NLN yet? I'd like to talk about scores and this new HLH 130 course!!!

    Or if anyone is currently in or previously had clinicals at DTCC please share your experience and give any tips!!!

    im interested in the jan 2014 nursing class....but im currently studying for the NLN exam. i know the higher i score the better, and i believe the deadline to take the test is 7/15..also the HLH course i hear you dont need it to apply for the program so i guess u can take it while you have a seat in the program...im not tintrested oo sure about the ranking system but with the classes ive already taken my number is at 25 so im hoping thats a good start but then again i could be adding the points wrong but hopefully i have a good shot at getting accepted i really need this

    Awesome! Have you taken the NLN yet? And yes, I did find out that you do not need the HLH course to apply. 25 seems like it could be a little off since you hadn't taken the NLN yet. Are you done all of your pre-reqs? I need to get it too! Best of luck!

    hey every1 its getting close to time to apply!!!! goodluck, and yea your are right i was calculating my score so wrong i think. i go see my adviser tomorrow and hopefully he can tell me how many points i have. i took the nln and got a 84 so hopefully that will be good enough. Does anyone know the minimum points that were accepted last year?

    Not sure but Im guessing 20 and above out of a maximum of 25 points. I just finished MAT119 which hadnt transferred in. Applied Aug 1st and Im ready for an answer already

    Correction, I think 25 out of 29 points is whats necessary
  12. by   imanb

    Hi everyone, so are we to just drop the apllication off in the brown box? we dont have to submit any other documents? im applying to the stanton campus aswell
  14. by   besaangel
    Yes it is the brown box on the admissions desk. No further docs are needed until they send you the awesome acceptance letter. You will then need to submit an acceptance folder with a copy of your CPR card, immunizations, high school transcript [again], drug test, background check, physical exam and another application to clinicals.

    But until the acceptance letter comes, we are fine

    I did think it was strange that the "application" was a simple demographics page
