Questions about CCGA's ADN program

  1. 0 Hi guys! I am a little confused about CCGA in Brunswick. I've been calling for a few days and leaving voicemails. I only just now was able to get an answer. She told me that they make you take an entire year of Core classes before entering the ASN/ADN program. So I asked, "So you mean an Associate's Degree with you guys is going to take me 3 years?" The woman said yes. Then she reiterated that I needed to speak to an advisor, which I've been trying to do. So my questions to you all are:

    1) Is, to your knowledge and/or experience, she correct about an ASN/ADN taking 3 years with them?


    2) Is is always so darned hard to reach someone when you have questions and/or issues?

    I've heard great things about CCGA but I'm getting an awfully bad experience right now.

    All ADN programs I have seen require at least 1 year of pre-reqs before beginning the program.

    It's amazing how things differ from State to State. I'm in Ohio and things are way different in my area. I think I'll be going straight for BSN instead. Thanks for the feedback though!

    The ASN program itself takes four semesters, so it all depends how long you will take to complete your cores. A lot of students begin the 2 year program & take the other required cores (Micro, Probability & Statistics, etc.) for the BSN at the same time. Therefore, when they graduate, they can jump right in.

    Regarding the length of time it takes to reach an advisor, it is a lot easier via e-mail. I make appointments with the secretary of the Nursing Department & that way I know I have the advisor's time & attention. So far, they are pretty good to reach. Sorry you had a tough time :/. Good luck!!

    Thanks for the advice. As it turns out, we probably wont be moving back to GA after all, but your reply is really appreciated. Thanks again!
