Does anyone have any experience with the program at FCC? I am currently taking my pre-req's now and I'm worried about getting in. They keep raising the GPA every year, now it's a 3.39 min. and you... Read More
Jun 9, '11I haven't checked in here in a while! But my spring semester went well and I just started a five week summer class. I met a nursing student from FCC last summer who said she went into the program with a 4.0 and was only able to maintain B's & high C's once nursing school started, so I am imagining that is pretty typical. Have students ended up dropping out from your class? How are your teachers?
Did many of the students choose to get their CNA after the first semester? Questions, questions.
Keep up the good work! Can't believe I only have three classes left to take before I start.
I noticed that even the fall program is now up to a 21 point requirement with over a 3.5 gpa, whew!
Aug 25, '11Yes we have had a few drop/fail out. Maybe 10 ish from an original class of 32. New students get added every semester though that are repeating classes, or just coming back after a break. I have found that there are a lot of students in my class that just want to PASS, but there are a number of people that are doing pretty well. I'm in my LAST semester now and have a 3.9 so.............just hope it stays that way I cant speak for the day option but all of the instructors I have had for the evening/weekend program have been excellent and supportive. I am kind of freaked to go out into the real world and leave all that support behind!
A lot of people DID get their CNA after first semester. I think we have 4 or 5 working as CNAs right now. And yeah, the program gets more competitive every semester!
Jun 19, '12Just read this entire thread and I wanted to thank everyone for all the great info! Hope everyone is doing great!
