Hey everyone, I didn't see a thread for the applicant pool for SCCC Fall 2013. I applied to the night program as my first choice and the day program as my second choice, at the Selden campus. I was wondering what program everyone... Read More

    Thank you good luck as well. I hope I am lucky enough to be accepted again. My gpa for prereqs is only a 3.56. My prerequisites were AP1 B+, AP2 A, Psy B+, Micro A, eng B. any one who takes micro has an advantage if you did well. Honestly it depends on how high the competing applicants gpa's are. But sccc is very competitive. They start from the top gpa and work there way down till the seats are taken. So 4.0, 3.7, then 3.5, and so on dont quote me on that exactly but that is what admissions told me last year. I also have my Bachelors degree so I have all the programs requirements except the nursing courses which I have mostly A's in so I believe that helped me as well. Last year they told me anyone with a 3.5 or higher usually gets a seat.

    Good luck! Have you tried SUNY farmingdale state college? They have a few options for nursing majors.. I don't think tuition is thattt bad . They recently starting interviewing nursing applicants before acceptance so that's nice

    And by the way , since you already have a BS from a different school it's very important you apply to a nursing school that has a accredited BSN excel program. Sccc does not, and they may make u take liberal arts courses again. Employers in NY are trying to become or maintain magnet status , which puts nurses at a high standard requiring a BSN . If you go for ur associates then you will most likely have a very difficult time finding employment

    Going to Suffolk is my last resort. I was in Liu in Brooklyn's accelerated and I couldnt afford the 16,000 a semester. I did not get into stony brooks accelerated so im waiting to here about there two year bsn. I graduated from Farmingdale with my bachelors but the deadline had already past to apply. As far as Suffolk goes I don't have to retake any of my liberal arts courses especially since I got my associates degree from them. So if I have to go to Suffolk ill have to get right back to school for my bsn. But thank you for the I for action.

    Not that Suffolk is a last resort school I just meant that obviously for me a bsn would be best.

    The magnet care thing is spreading fast but a lot of hospitals will consider you for employment if you prove to be in school for your bsn while holding your Rn license with an associates degree. In my case, since I am already a CNA in a hospital, they told me they would transfer my position to an RN after graduating from sccc and pay for my bsn while I work for them. But everyone's situation is different. I agree going straight for your bsn is the best option especially if you aren't in a position like me. Pretty soon I am sure they will take away associates degree programs all together and people won't have the choice anymore.

    Wow your job sounds like a dream. Congrats! I hope you take them up on that offer and get it in writing , it's very important !!! I made the mistake of being a CNA for a business that made too many of those promises and couldn't afford or accommodate for all the positions offered. There's still CNAs working at my place still waiting for RN jobs (about 6 months now) ;(

    Hello everyone,
    I heard that letters will be going out in the mail by the end of next month. Anyone else hear that or is it just a rumor??
