    You can't take Nursing 130 and 131 at the same time.

    Cece: is ABSN programs not an option for you?

    You must be a Union County Resident. Even though you took only 2 courses (CHEM & PSY) in the Spring 2011 , they already invited you for Nursing 130. Congratulations! Hope I'll get mine too , I've been in school for a long time. I've earned total of 40 credits already. 31 credits transferred and 9 credits earned at UCC. I don't have a degree yet so ABSN not an option for me;(

    If you're crossing over the pond into NJ, you didn't want to try applying to the ABSN programs over here? There are plenty of NY students in my ABSN program, UMDNJ. If you have a 3.0 from your previous degree, you're pretty much guaranteed in. I did my prereques at Union County and never thought about going to Trinitas. If I were to go into an ADN program it would have been Muhlenberg because they have an accelerated ADN program for people with their college degree already. Not sure if you knew that.

    I'm just trying to help you get to the RN quicker since you have a degree, because I was in your same shoes and want you to be aware of all the routes before settling.

    I tried UMDNJ. Didnt get in. I did not know Muhlenberg has a program like that. I am a little worried that sciences are too old. I been trying to get into a nursing school for 1 and 1/2 yrs. I will research more about the program.
    Thanks for your help. I really appreciate it.:bowingpurlol

    Oh, sorry to hear that you didn't get in. Well you have shown great perseverance by not giving up. Apply to both Trinitas and Muhlenberg if you can to maximize your chances of getting in. Good luck and I hope you get in. Continue to not give up!

    Thank you. I am not. No matter how much money or time it takes I am going to be a nurse. Do you have your bsn yet?

    Thanks for the congrats!

    Yes I only took two classes at Ucc everything else was transferred over. I am an essex County resident. Today was registration, which was from 10;30 am to 1:30 pm. I am a little scared some people in the registration class was stating that it was alot of memorization and that out of the summer class only 20% passed. They made it seem like a daunting task. I am taking A and P 2 with nurse130.

    @Cecelia: I'm currently at UMDNJ.

    @askrunu: I took my prerequisites at UCC and the students in my class was saying the same thing. They had nothing good to say about Trinitas. However, I wouldn't allow that to sway you. You must study hard and do the best you can. Be the 20% that pass. Nursing is tough no matter where you go.
