    Thankyou! I hate this waiting process..! I am living in Florida right now and I have completed my pre-reqs here, A&P 1 & 2.. Micro.. etc. so itd be ideal for me to go straight to nursing, but I will take what I can get. I have heard some really great things about the school and I would just really love to attend.
    The school is amazing and has the best reputation in the area. We get the best clinical selections and our grads are consistently chosen before any of the other schools. It was the ONLY school I applied to so I'm feeling very blessed that I was selected. GOOD LUCK!

    Unfortunately my GPA wasn't competitive enough to get into the program for Fall 2013 and I suppose I didn't actually apply to the pre-nursing program on time so I am on the after deadline list at the moment. Chances are looking pretty slim that they will call and say they have a spot for me, but I am trying to stay positive. I am re applying for the pre-nursing program to begin in spring because I really would love to attend the school and boost my GPA so I can earn a guaranteed spot into the nursing program. Did you go straight to nursing or did you do their general studies courses first?

    I did their pre-nursing program. Since I was an early childhood major, I already had all of the non-science classes finished.

    oh okay, do you mind me asking what your GPA was going into their pre-nursing program? That is really cool you were an early childhood major, are you planning on going into pediatrics? Thats my plan, I mainly want to go into nursing to specialize in pediatrics. CCHS is still my number one choice at this point but I am of course looking at other schools as a back up. I like the idea of living in North Carolina, as someone living and going to nursing school there do you have any insight on any other schools in that area or state worth looking into? Thanks for your advice (:

    My GPA was 4.0 when I applied to the pre-nursing program and so far I've maintained a 4.0 at CCHS. Mercy School of Nursing is a sister school of CCHS and also affiliated with Carolinas Healthcare System. Queens/Presbyterian SON is keeping their BSN program but have cancelled their ASN program due to low NCLEX pass rates (they were put on probation but couldn't get the pass rate up). CPCC (the community college) also offers an ASN program but it doesn't have the best reputation. UNCC has a BSN program as well.

    I don't think any semester for pre-nursing is more competitive than another. It's pretty competitive no matter what. Pre-nursing was definitely the right route for me. The majority of my classes from my previous major transferred (ENG, SOC, PSY, etc) so that was a huge relief. Since I didn't have any sciences to transfer, the pre-nursing program was perfect for me! I took the required A&P 1 and 2, math/dosage calculations, and med term classes and earned guaranteed admission. I took micro in the fall since there is an "off" semester between pre-nursing and nursing. Now, the only class I have is the nursing class...which believe me, is MORE than enough! It's 4-5 days a week with 2 days being ALL DAY and then hours and hours of studying and preparing for clinicals once you get home. The hardest schooling I've ever had but it is so worth it!
    Hi RunnerRN, I am planning to apply to CCHS for Spring 2014.. but I haven't decided yet if I want to apply for Nursing or Pre nursing. If I apply as Nursing and I'm not accepted, will they automatically consider my application for Spring pre-nursing? Do you have any tips? Also it sounds like you did pre-nursing.. do they have a summer semester and if so, would I be able to start in spring, do the summer semester, and then (hopefully) start the actual Nursing curriculum Fall 2014? Sorry for all the questions

    When you apply, you can check boxes for both the Nursing and Pre-Nursing programs. If you only check Nursing, you won't be considered for Pre-Nursing. Nursing starts in January and August;Pre-Nursing starts in January, May, and August. USUALLY the way it works is this: You do 2 semesters of Pre-Nursing (A&P 1 and 2, Medical Terminology, and Math) to earn your guaranteed admission. If you've earned your spot, you'll have an off semester, which is when most people take Micro and their CNA course (required!). For example: I took A&P 1 and Math in spring 2012, A&P 2 and Med Term in summer of 2012 and earned my spot for January's Nursing class. I took micro in the fall (I already had my CNA and all the other required classes, like ENG, PSY, SOC, etc.) However, I was waitlisted (along with several others) for Nursing for fall 2012 so if a spot had opened up (which didn't happen), I would have started Nursing in fall 2012. If you have other classes that you need (like ENG, PSY, SOC, etc) most people take them during Pre-Nursing to get them out of the way. I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend getting all of your other classes out of the way before starting Nursing!

    I hope that helps!

    That was really helpful, thanks for responding!! I am taking my CNA course this summer to get it out of the way and I've done all the pre-reqs except Micro, and A&P 1/2. I'm hoping to be admitted to Pre-Nursing Spring 2014.. if you don't mind sharing can you tell me what your GPAs were and SAT/ACT when you got into Pre-Nursing? I'm just wondering if I'm competitive enough. Also as far as gaining admission to Nursing after Pre-Nursing, do they just rank Pre-Nursing students according to GPA?

    THANK YOU again
