I don't recommend KCKCC. You might be able to get in without a waiting list, on a low GPA, and the price is right, but there are a few other things you will want to consider.
Consider that they perfer that you have all of your prereqs out of the way before you get into the program. That's another year right there.
Consider that it's actually the clinical experience of a four year program crammed into two. It's extremely difficult to carry the usual lecture/clinical coursework and ANY other elective that is required, due to the tremendous workload and spontaneously scheduled ordeals that you are required to showup for. Good luck finding a job that is THAT flexible that they will accommodate an unknown clinical schedule (until the very last minute) and last minute scheduled items.
We were NEVER allowed to see our scantrons (the form you enter the answers for exam questions). In fact the administrators absolutely refused to show proof of our actual grades.
Unlike other nursing programs
where they put instructors on either side of the lecture hall, allow you only a pen (so you can't change your answer) the original test form and a blank sheet of paper. Even though they go over the test, they NEVER correct the scantrons.
You watch your GPA deteriorate so badly (in part due to the fact that they refuse to correct scantrons). Some students lost scholarships
due to that fact. They overwhelm you, especially in Med/Surg that many 4.0 students actually had to drop their jobs to maintain just a bottom C.
Although students have actually had to obtain attorneys to gain access to their scantrons to prove that they actually passed a particular semester, the nursing program still continues this practice.
The real downside is that, once you're in the program and you want to transfer out of it, (and believe me, you will) you can't because of your deteriorated GPA. Your only recourse is to drop, take other courses to boost your GPA and get on a waiting list for another college. Be aware, too, that you can only drop while you have a C,,,otherwise it's counted as a "fail".
Mistakes have been made in which students were granted points on quizes or extra credit only to have them taken away and the instructors and administrators "don't make mistakes", even though you have it in writing,,,they won't rectify that either. In those cases the students were failed by one or two points which would have been covered by the actual points that were taken away.
Some students have had to repeat a semester only to be told partway through that they actually did pass the first time. All too late to get back with their original group.
And please be keenly aware that KCKCC has had nursing students commit suicide while in that nursing program. Draw your own conclusions.
Bottom line is, if you can't tolerate a ton of pressure and unrealistic demands, don't sign up for this program.
