    I started filling out the application today, but then backed out of it. I''m going to wait until I have all my final grades. Including the grade from the class I'm taking over the winter session. Does anybody know anyone who got in with a gpa lower than a 3.4?
    Personally no but i would apply and see what happens. There is always the lottery and if your a and p 1 grade is high and your teas score is good that will also help you. Good Luck!

    [QUOTE=motosteph;7060536]Wow everyones stats sound competitive. Stay positive, if we dont make it in this year there is always next year. I got waitlisted last year, but i think i grew as a person and student during that time, and i wan to be a nurse even more. And thats totally right, these stats arent a true reflection of how good of a nurse you will be, or how well you do in the program.

    I was waitlisted once too! It stinks but a year goes by fast! It feel worse at the time but looking back, not too bad.

    I was wondering what was the computer applications exam and if that was new to apply this year. Also, what classes are going to be part of the GPA. I took the teas yesterday and i got an 85.3%. My GPA last year when I appllied was 3.49 and I got a B in A&P. I was waitlisted #21 last year but my teas is a lot higher.
    I think that exam is for students who wish to bypass the required computer class.

    [QUOTE=LouiseD;7066470]Anyone know what the program is like at Northwestern Connecticut CC? My first choice is Gateway (mostly for the hours and that is the area I would most like to work in as an RN) but I don't know what to put for second choice. I heard that NWCC is partial evenings and weekends and I like that it's accelerated, but I'm not sure if they are as reputable as the other



    I start at NWCC in January. We have class Tues 5-9 and clinical Wed and Thur (night or day option.. well you pick top two and where they place you they place you). They are doing away with weekend aspect as it was hard to see certain procedures (post op floors are quiet on the weekend i guess). There are 36 students in a class at NWCC and the campus is nice and nursing lab brand new. You go throughout summer but "skip" the fall semester by starting in Jan.

    i am one hour from school... 16 mon program and i have to go there about three days week. Some of the clincial sites (two days) will be a closer commute. I would say two hours is a bit far.

    Um, why is abstinence only education a good thing? Kids aren't stupid. They realize they only way to for sure not get pregnant is by not having sex (duh). Are you really saying we shouldn't teach birth control in sex education??

    I agree. Safe sex is effective but abstinence only is taking ten steps back...
