Hmmm it takes about 4 full semesters to get done with the prerequisites. I just recently graduated from TMCC this spring.
When i applied, my GPA wasn't the greatest between 3.0-3.3. Let alone good enough for UNR mind you which i hear is atleast a 3.6 to get in. hehehe
It really isn't that hard to get into the program, it's just having a decent GPA on all of your SCIENCE classes (i.e. BIO 190,223,224,251 etc ) ... Ok to explain it even further please go to http://www.tmcc.edu/nursing/download...AdmissProc.pdf
That link describes the new admission procedures that are taking place at TMCC. Please read these websites or go directly to TMCC Nursing Program website at http://www.tmcc.edu/nursing/
From the feeling i'm getting on the TMCC program, they have raised the bar in getting into the program. For instance, i started in Fall of 2005. We started with 56 students right (i think) for the first semester, second semester rolls around we lose 3 but gain 3 so we have the same amount of students. Third semester rolls around we lose about 15-20. So we're down to 33. Midway through the 3rd semester we lost 3 more people. So in the 4th and last semester we only have 30 people. Do the math 56 to 30 is an EYE OPENER..
To me it sounds as if our school is trying its best to decrease the amount of people who fail out of the program. Anyways i'm finished with it, and i have to say it's a solid program. Very great program to learn fundamentals and hands-on. If you have any questions regarding how the program goes, just message me.
