    CCCC does have a nursing program to get your RN. I have heard very good things about their nursing program (very well put together). It is very competitive to get into though (then again, it's competitive to get in almost everywhere now), and they accept a lot of students that have all or most of there prerequisites completed.

    I wasn't planning on taking Pharmacology Calculations (a prereq. for CCCC) till the summer. I need to save up money to live on my own, and I don't want to take a unique pre-req. course if I don't end up getting accepted (hence waiting till after I find out in the summer!!). I have all the other prereq.'s done and a pretty strong academic background (BS in Sports Med ~3.8 GPA). Do you think that'll be enough to outweigh the fact that I haven't taken Pharm Calc? I hope so!!

    I don't think it should be a problem but I'm not positive. I don't know if anything has changed. I took Pharmacology Calculations in the summer of 2004 and there were students that were entering into the actual nursing program for the fall of 2004, so they did allow it before. I would just double check and make sure that all of your prereq. transfer over. I don't know how long it has been since you have taken some of the science courses but they have to be within a certain amount of years or you have to retake the. You would have to call the college about that though. As far as the GPA, I don't know what to say. I had a 3.76 and didn't get in or even get on the waiting list but a co-worker of mine had about the same average and got into the nursing program. I would just make sure that your application is in early and that you have a good essay. I think one of my downfalls was not having my application in early. Anyways good luck with everything. I hope that you make it in. I heard that they have a really good program.

    Hmmmm... That's strange. What degree did you and you coworker have? I actually only sent in a resume, but after your post, I think I'm going to send in an essay too (deadline's jan 5th...the director of admissions said they won't start reviewing until mid-january). Thanx for the advice.

    This is actually going to be my first degree. After I got out of the Air Force, I started working in a nursing home. I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do and didn't want to spend my money going to school just to find out that I didn't enjoy it. Soooo years after being a CNA, I decided that I wanted to become a nurse. But, about the essay. I would send one in only because they do not do interviews and the essay is really the only way that they get to know you. Good luck with everything.
