Pccc/sccc

  1. Hey everyone -

    Just have to say I just graduated from PCCC - through the Sussex location :-)

    I LOVED this program and highly recommend it to anyone -- you will work your tail off - but it is WELL worth the effort.

    If anyone is out there looking into the program or has been accepted -- feel free to drop me a line :-)

    Hey Kattabba,

    I am looking into apply to their nursing program. Could you tell me how much was the tuition and how long it took you to graduate? Also,
    what other schools did you look into before applying to nursing programs?

    I want to start applying and its already pretty late for me =/. also, i have a b.s. in psy from SBU ( Long Island, NY) already and was wondering if they will accept my credits.

    Thanks!

    Hey Smiles :-)

    Let's see -- Tuition is a per credit fee -- I think it is around $100/credit if you live in Sussex County. Nur.1 , 2, & 3 are all 9-10 credits -- so tuition is about $1000 per semester. The other fees add up though - including books (figure at least $200-$500/semester) and uniforms (I think I spent somewhere around $100??) Nursing Shoes (Walmart - $20) and a Stethescope (I splurged and got a Littman at Allheart.com -- cost me about $70).

    I had started at William Paterson and was completing my "pre-reqs" when I disovered that it would take a lot less time (and $$) if I transferred to a community college. I checked into CCM -- I had gotten my AS in Chem from there -- but since I was no longer a resident of Morris County I was told my chances were slim to none to get accepted -- so I pursued the program at Sussex.

    I had to take a few pre-reqs (you will need A&P 1 and 2, Microbiology, and Basic Chem). They will take a lot of your credits -- after taking the rest of my pre-reqs at Sussex I took my NLN (a standardized test) and then applied to the program. I got in -- my grades were pretty good - and I did well on the NLN.

    I know that the next program starts in January of 2008 and will be an evening program. Give the college a call and have someone look over your transcript -- I can't remember the person's name right now -- but make sure it is someone directly involved with the Nursing program :-)

    Any more questions -- feel free to e-mail me! Or you can post here :-)
