Hello!!! Are you in the nursing program there? I was accepted into the RN Program and will start in about a month!!! If you are a NS please tell me all about the program!! What do you like and hate about it? I want to know EVERYTHING! Thanks for responding to my email!!!
Well, first off, congratulations on your acceptance! The nursing program at HCC is very competitive, only about 40 students out of 400 applicants get in. I am not in the program right now, as I am planning to transfer out of Harford next year. I have been completing pre-req's, and only have micro left now. I've been at it since 9/03, and am just ready to get out of here, and get my BSN. Harford is a good school, in small doses. Now I am to the point that everything about this place is frustrating me to no end. It's very difficult to get a straight answer out of anyone here, the advisors have steered me in the complete wrong direction, preventing me from being able to transfer sooner. I currently have a 3.61 GPA, have been told it MAY not be strong enough to get in, blah blah blah. The NCLEX passing rate is falling more and more each year. There have been several problems with finding and keeping good professors and faculty members. I don't mean to seem negative, just please understand my frustrations! I have been here for three years now..Things have been stacking up for me over time, being that you're in the program already, I doubt you'll have the issues that many of us have endured!
Have you already completed all the core science classes and humanities electives? If not, let me know what you're interested in taking and I'll do my best to offer some advice! HCC does have some really great individuals on faculty, you just have to find them!
