I am new here and so happy I found this site! I am currently working on my nursing pre-reqs for CCBC. ( I have my bachelors in Business) So I just have the sciences left to complete. I will be starting with Bio 110 in Jan 2013.
I would like to hear from anyone who has been accepted into CCBC's nursing program
Which program did you attend (Essex RN, Essex LPN to RN, Catonsville RN, Catonsville Online or Dundalk LPN)?
What was your Nursing Pre-req GPA? (AP 1 and 2, Micro, Eng 101 and Psyc 101)
What was your General Pre-Reqs GPA? (Engl 102, Math, Developmental Psych, Soc and Comm)
What was your overall GPA?
What was your TEA score, and if you achieved an advanced what did you use to study? Or what do you suggest?
What advice would you give to help someone get accepted into the program?
Thanks so much, this will help give me a picture of what I need to achieve to have a better chance of getting accepted into the program.

I was accepted into CCBC Essex for the Fall semester of 2011.
I had a 4.0 GPA upon application to the program and scored a 91% on my TEAS.
My credentials were above average, but after just graduating (in May) from Essex, I would like to suggest one thing: run the other way. I was warned by other students about the program having horrible instructors and clinical faculty but thought to myself "Maybe they're just lazy or oversensitive". However, I have never met a group of more unsupportive, rude and unfair people in my life. Just a suggestion.
Best of luck.
OMG- you are scaring me. I just started the program and so far I have found the instructors to be supportive and nurturing but very firm in their rules. One thing that bugs me is how they basically own us. They actually change class times. It is only the 3rd week and they have done it twice where we are required to come 30 minutes early. And they often let their lectures run 10 minutes past dismissal time. It is hard to manage when you have other obligations.
I am sorry you had a bad experience- Best of luck to you
Also- we could not use rate my professor for nursing classes as they register you- you have no say in your schedule but they do try to get you set up to your preferences as far as lab sections, etc... They were able to give most people what they wanted as far as that goes. I did use ratemyprofessor heavily for prereqs and glad I did.
