    I just spoke with the administrative assistant with the RN Program and she recommended just waiting a bit to purchase the textbooks because some of the books are changing. Also, she said we will receive a 41 page handbook at orientation that will give us lots of information and we will be receiving uniforms some time in October.

    I would just like to ask, what was everyones GPA's? i(if you don't mind me asking) I did horrible in A&P, and I am so scared that I ruined it for myself with the nursing program. I am getting high grades in everything, except that stinking class. I have never wanted ANYTHING more than to be a nurse. Do you think I will still be able to get in with a C in a&p???

    just my point of view, someone once told me that they really focus a lot on the a&p grades. so i think getting better grades in these two classes will make your package more competitive

    I am not 100% sure on this but when I first started taking courses at CTC last summer, my advisor said that you have to get As and Bs in all of your classes because they won't even look at someone with Cs. Now ... that may not be completely true but the ones that I have spoken with so far that were accepted all had 4.0s and I have a 3.8 because I made two Bs. If you make a C in there, I would try to retake it for a better grade if you have the chance. It is VERY competitive. I had a couple of friends who made Cs this past quarter and were not accepted.

    I am actually applying for LPN first but I have 1 concern for the future when I go for my RN. I took ENG 1101 in 2009 and got a C. If I make A's in all of my other prereq's should I be ok as far as GPA.
    I am also looking at the LPN-RN program at CVCC.

    It's really hard to say whether a certain GPA or grades will be good enough to get you into the program since it all depends on the grades of the people you are competing with at the time you apply. Also, grades are only a portion of the selection process.

    Congratulations to all that have been accepted! I won't be in town when you have orientation, but really listen to the advice given to you by my classmates that are there!

    So, CTC ADN C/o 2012.. How was your first day of class!?!?!?

    I'm really glad I found this thread!! I am currently at CTC, NOT in the program yet. It's tough for me b/c I work fulltime, am married & have a family. I'm also probably a bit older than most of you, but this is what I want to do... so here I am. I have the class I am currently in and 2 more before I can apply to the program, BUT a post said to take all the non-nursing classes first ( to include Microbiology, Speech & Humanities) so it looks like it might take me a bit longer than expected before applying.

    Hi - If you have all the required prereqs done by the application deadline, then by all means don't wait to apply just because you don't have all the other classes completed. It just makes things a little easier on you if you have the time to get them done prior to starting the nursing courses. Good luck.

    I'm a little late to this post, but I will be transferring down to Fort Benning next May and I am looking to pursue my ADN. I will have a few credits from Community College up here in Virginia that hopefully will transfer. I've looked on the CTU website at the suggested sequence, is that ALL the credits you need for the program? I only saw one ENG class listed and I saw that some folks were saying they took 2. I also notice no Medical Terminology classes are required, does that mean they integrate that in w/ some of the nursing classes? I probably won't be able to apply until March 2013 to make sure I have all of my pre-reqs. CTU should allow more CLEP too. Do you know if A&P requires any pre-reqs of its own? Up here, you have to have Biology in order to take A&P. Thanks!
