Holmes CC new night and weekend ADN course

  1. Has anyone been accepted into the new night and weekend ADN course @ Holmes Community College. If so, how many nights during the week and is it every weekend? What are the hours like? Is this the only college around the Jackson area that offers night/weekend ADN courses? Does anyone know how Holmes CC's nursing program is rated, good, bad, mediocre etc.?


    Thanks

    Hey Nancy! I was kind of wondering the same thing. I applied for this program and am waiting to hear something!

    This is the only night/weekend course I've seen in the Jackson area. I heard the date of November 1 as the date of notification, but I don't know for sure.

    As far as Holmes, I'm in the freshman class this year and I have been quite pleased with the instructors and the level of instruction. The Ridgeland program is only in its third year. While taking A&P this summer, the instructor mentioned that 47 of 48 graduates took and passed NCLEX this year. Pretty good pass rate for the first graduating class.

    Hello! I am proud to say that I am one of the 47 who passed the NCLEX from Holmes CC in Ridgeland. It was so amazing to me how well everyone did considering we were the first graduating class. We went through some trials to make it, but we succeeded! I think that we as a class are pretty much functioning well in our new roles as nurses.

    I'm glad to hear that Holmes has a goodreputation for their nursing program. If you all don't mind my asking (the people that have attended the nursing program at holmes), what were your ACT scores like, math and eng subscores too. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you WannaBeNurseKatie. Let me know when you make it in.:wink2:


    Thanks for the info
