Is there anyone else on here who is waiting for a response from WCCCD's nursing department? I applied June 30, and am going slightly crazy waiting for my acceptance/denial e-mail! Let's get to know each other, hopefully we'll be... Read More

    Hi!
    I have a question regarding WCCCD. I am in the process of deciding whether I want to apply to EMU or WCCCD. I still have a few prereqs to do and I cannot decide where to take them. My question is, if I only take 3 prereqs at WCCCD will I still have a shot? So far I have a 4.0 and healthcare experience. Good luck to you all!
    You have to have at least 12 credit hours from WCCCD to apply to the program. When you apply, the only grades they look at are English I, A&P I and II, Microbiology and Psychology. Just try to pick up the 12 credit hours and you should be able to apply. Oh yeah, you have to attend an informational meeting and take the TEAS test. There are other requirements, so I strongly recommend that you attend the meeting as soon as your time permits. Good luck!

    What address do we mail the 10 panel drug screen to?

    It should be mailed to the Northwest campus. It should say attention ----------------. The schools' address is :8200 W Outer Drive, Detroit, MI 48219.i told them to mail a copy to me, can't risk any stories.

    Thank you principles. I don't know why they didn't include this address in our acceptance letter.

    So many people say you can't work while in the program but how do people survive financially? I plan on applying in June and the fact is I have to work. I have tried to figure out how to earn extra money but working full time and taking classes at night leaves no extra time.

    Take out loans do whatever you have to do to finish the first 7 1/2 weeks. You may be able to work after that. Not full time though. I work 3 days a week now

    why is the semester only 7 1/2 weeks? we still graduate in 2 years so I don't understand why the semesters are so short

    Thanks ShanayJ. I think I can manage that first 7 1/2 weeks by only working a couple of days. I will have all the co-req's done, will the schedule still be that packed in the beginning?

    I would like to work as a CNA as I work towards my RN degree, both for the experience and for the steady job (I am a father and a husband). Should I take the CNA program through WCCCD (which is 10 credit hours) along with one of my prereqs or co-reqs?

    Also which classes (pre req's and co req's) are the real tough ones, I know everyone is different but is there a general consensus on which classes to watch out for? I plan on taking ALL the pre reqs AND Co reqs before applying so I am trying to figure out a balanced schedule.

    Hi ARock&AHardplace! I plan on having all co-req's finished too. I am just taking A & P 1, it's hard but I am doing well. I am having a harder time in the lab I've taken Micro and did really well but it is a hard class. Nutrition isn't hard but there is tons of homework.

    I've heard people say not to take the WCCCD CNA program just because of the cost and time vs going to the Red Cross. I'm not sure how true that is though. Good luck to you.
