Hi, Is anyone else applying to this program? The application deadline is July 15. I am planning to apply - now trying to figure out how I can take the prerequisites in time! Ryan... Read More

    aj207- The reading part is tough. Also, there isn't much prep materials out there specifically for Accuplacer, which makes it harder. The good thing is that you can take your time if you're just doing the reading part.

    I also plan to apply to Roxbury and Bunker Hill. They both have a January program which is when I want to start, and they are close to where I live. But I hope I can get into QC because I don't want to spend time studying for TEAS.

    Yes you can take just the reading portion and not the other two. I don't know whether they will still give you 3 hours if you're just taking the reading portion, but I think they probably would.

    That's awesome if I could just take the reading portion. I'm pretty content with my other scores at this point. I'll have to check it out. Are you planning to take it again? Do you have all your pre-reqs done?

    Yeah I will retake the reading portion since it can't hurt. I don't know if I can do better though.I'm finishing up chemistry this week and have bio. I'm taking A&P1 in the summer but that won't finish til august. Having bio is fine though.Are u done with pre reqs?

    Yeah, I actually have a BS so a lot of the classes I had already taken (bio & chem). I just finished A&PI last week at QC - it was a really good class, you'll like it. I'm going to register to take A&PII in the fall. Even though it's not a pre-req I'm trying to knock as much out as possible so I can mostly focus on the nursing classes. I'm really hoping to get in, but if I don't I'll just apply for Jan 2014. They're changing the admissions process for next year so I might have a better shot if it doesn't work out this time around.
    You should be fine though. Your test scores are definitely competitive enough. Good for you for taking it again though, like you said, it can't hurt.
    The only thing I'm hoping is that they don't extend the deadline like they did for the full time program. I've had July 15th on my calendar for a while now!

    Same here..I have a BS/MS (finance), but I took bio/chem a long time ago and the grades were bad so I have to retake them. My other general ed courses are fine and should be transferable. I also plan on knocking off all the non-nursing science courses (A&P 1&2, micro, growth & development etc.) before January. That way I have time to work part-time or more options to apply to other programs if I don't get into QC.

    I think you have a very good shot at getting in with your scores, and I hope you do! Do you know what changes will be made to 2014's admission? It's a good idea that they change because this "ranking system" doesn't make a lot of sense to me, and they probably lose out on some great candidates with this methodology.

    Hey Erica, I'm thinking of applying for the bridge program too, but the Plymouth campus. I have to take the accuplacer too, I haven't applied yet or even started thinking of the accuplacer yet because I'm finishing up micro at my local CC, hopefully in a few weeks I'll start to study for that. I had to take the TEAS for my school so I don't know if the accuplacer is similar or not. Good luck!!

    Hi Ericad85- If you have the iPhone you can find the official Accuplacer preparation app. Others have said that it's around $2 and well worth it. I don't have iPhone but there are a few sample practice/guides out there. Here are some that I found pretty useful:

    If you go to the link below you'll see where it says "upcoming changes to the admissions policies for selected programs"Quincy College

    I think they're switching to the TEAS V & they're also looking at your pre-req grades & I think there's an essay too. Also, they're taking into account work experience & if you've taken classes at QC. It seems to be more comprehensive than the way they do it now. The only drawback would be that you have to study for the TEAS, but I'd rather have to study than take the accuplacer that seems to have limited 'studying' materials available.

    Thanks aj207. I wouldn't have found that information myself. The point system makes a lot of sense though but definite requires a lot more work to apply.

    Keep in mind that these admissions changes would go into effect for the cohort applying for the Full time Fall 2013 program. So anyone applying for the part time program starting in January 2013 is still only going to have to take the Accuplacer.
