    The old program is being phased out for a new program...the old program is a 5 year track where ur gen ed course are mixed in with ur nursing classes. The new program is shorter and u take all ur pre reqs before entry into the program...the class cycle is also different as u take all non clinical classes first and finish with clinical classes...don't be scared its a good program it's just a few kinks they need to work out

    Very tru williams3929. There are some kinks and to darmor11, our class was kinda of a guinea pig trial and error test. If you look at coppins program currently, it has been changed again to incorporate gen eds with nursing courses. I am not sure of the length, but you can visit the website for more info. The program is still pretty good, and you learn a ton!!!

    If half of the class is still failing then the new program isn't that much different from the old one. From med/surg and patho to the first semester of the senior year there's usually half of the class failing.

    Why do you think half of the class is failing? Are the professors stretched to the limit and they need to hire more professors? It just sounds crazy to me.

    It's a lot more than that is not an easy thing to take in so much info, adjust to a change in question styles w/ only a week to get it all in ... As far as the instructors the only problem is that they are split between the classes and aren't as available to sit down with as they usually are, u can usually catch them via email

    I wanted to know if anyone can please. What are they looking for when applying into the program. I am trying to apply for the fall 2013 and a little nervous

    Make sure that you log on to website and check for requirements. The biggest thing is to have good grades. In my class they accepted student as low as 2.6. Because the new class is smaller the requirement will be higher. I do know you need to pass teas.

    Hello. I'm a little late in the game, but I wanted to know how long did it take to find out you were accepted into the program or were asked to take the entrance exam? I really want to get in I just applied and feel like pins and needle. My gpa is 2.97 and that's not including what I will get this spring semester. I thank you in advance.
