To add to the previous msg....
I am currently in CPCC's program and will graduate in May.
It is an excellent program. Applications for admission for next years program are due some time in december I believe.
With CHS and Presby you need your CNA when you apply.
You do not need it at CPCC. All programs are going to get you your degree ..but you also have to look at how well you're prepared to take the NCLEX....or it wont matter what kind of degree you have. I would also advise taking as many prereq classes as possible before starting..especially if you have a family or like to breath occasionally. All the nursing courses at CPCC are during the day..they are at the vast majority of the schools around here...I havent heard of any night classes yet...you may have a clinical or two at night..but plan for the day.
One word to learn for nursing school..FLEXIBLE.....
that is the one word they taught us at orientation..
I still have the occasional panic moment trying to fit everything in...but the end is in sight..
hope this helps
ANS is a wonderful thing..............
