    Hi MrsComboCurlz!
    I also plan on attending one of the open houses in September. Is there any one thing in particular that stood out to you? I will be going into the program with all of the prereqs completed except for nutrition. It would seem some schools say nutrition is a nursing course, while others say it's not. I don't want to waste time completing a course that may not be accepted somewhere.

    Well...I have ALL the Pre-Req's finished as well. But.......they've had some recent changes, before all prereqs had to be a grade "C" and up to be accepted. No longer so, now it has to be a grade "C+" and up to be accepted. This for me means I have to take Psych 101 over because I got a "C" in this course back in 1998! Sucks big time ;0( . So I'm just gonna knock it out now this semester at the CUNY School I did all my Pre Req's at. I start next Thursday. Also....Intro to Chemistry is not shown to be a Pre req for Hopfer on their curriculum but it is....Chem MUST be done b4 entering their program. The advisor told me this last Thursday at the open house upon going over my application w/ me. So thank God I did it already...most nursing programs want Chem anyway. So it's great going into the program having to do the Nurs classes ONLY! Lord knows its enought on its own! All the best to u in whatever ur doing...;0)

    I had to take Sociology over because I got a C in it 17 years ago! Being that chemistry is not listed in their list of courses to complete, do they accept high school Chem? I was able to use high school Chem to complete my prereq in A&P.

    Yeah I'm almost certain HS chem is fine, but call or wait till u get to the open house and make sure! Overall the staff seem very very caring and helpful...they stressed it so much that their a small school and they want and help EVERYONE to succeed while in the program.

    I do like the small school feeling. I would be traveling from northern Queens and have to pay a toll, but it would seem worth it. I also like the 8hr Saturday clinical. Another program I am considering is a 1 day 12hr, or (2) 6hrs clinicals per week. I work f/t so, any time saved is a good thing. I am surprised there is not more information on the school mentioned here recently. Any idea how many applicants they accept?

    I believe we were told 36-40 students for the evening.

    Hey, it's best to try and gets many of the liberal and sciences classes out of the way before starting in Jan. To definitely help lighten your load...but the only thing is MOST colleges is about to start for Fall 2012 this week...would u be ably to take whatever course u may need now, before Jan 2013? If not you'll have to take them w/ your nursing classes during a regular semester and some during the summer while attending Hopfer. They'll advise you BEST during the open house. All the best to you.
