    Wow! I hear it is really tough. I havent even applied for the program yet and I'm scared. What was her grade point average? And do you know what she got on her NLN exam. I just want to see if I have a chance.

    Thanks

    i'm an alternate for fall 08

    i applied with A's in all the pre-reqs but i only had one or two support courses done. my nln was like 158 IIRC. i pretty much didn't get in b/c of the support courses so they're pretty important to have. KCC doesn't count courses you're currently taking so the A&PII Micro an stuff i took this past spring didn't count when i submitted my app. i shouldn't have any difficulty getting in for spring 08 but after talking to the UHM advisors they said i shouldn't have trouble getting in to UHM either. i'm pretty sure i'm gonna go with UHM.

    there's a couple KCC nursing student posters on forumshawaii.net as well in the "school life" section. they come on here every once in awhile but i think they frequent forumshawaii more often. just look for some of the nursing threads in the school subforum

    I think I mixed up colleges. I meant Kingsborough Community College in New York.
    ( KCC) Sorry.

    haha i was wondering why those numbers sounded completely different from what i've seen of KCC (hawaii)'s program.

    KCC (hawaii) has a wayyy higher retention rate.

    In Hawaii? That is amazing! What is the actual percentage of people who finish the program? Thanks.

    i would say at least 90%! hopefully you have a class that supports each other.

    around there. i know Manoa's BSN program graduates about 90% usually. i think KCC was about the same.

    both programs are very highly competitive so it's pretty rare for people that can't hack it to get accepted in the first place. that and both programs have great instructors that want you to succeed.

    Yeah, uh, I think that would be me =]. But like I said in the above thread, if you have any questions about the KCC ADN program feel free to PM me. I just finished my first couple of semesters but any helpful advice that I can give, I will.
