OCCC Fall 2013 Hopefuls!!!

  1. 0
    Hi guys! Just wondering if anyone knows how many points it takes to get into the nursing program at OCCC. I'm applying for fall with 15-16 points. I'm hoping my chances are good, but I'm not sure how many points it usually takes. Any knowledge on the subject is appreciated. Thanks!

    I just had my points tallied today and the minimum number of points the last couple semesters has been 16. Anything more is helpful and anything less you may not get looked at. Hope that helps!

    It is typically more competitive in the fall and the preference point cut-off is higher than for the spring semester. I just started this spring and everyone with 17 points got in. A few people had 16. Fall 2012 was 18 points I think. Just make sure you do as much as you can to get the extra preference points such as taking the TEAS. It would be too late now to take Pharmacology or Intro to Nursing for extra points if you haven't already. But if you haven't yet I would definitely take them over the summer to get more points for the spring app if you aren't able to get in this fall. Good luck to you with your Nursing career!

    I talked to the guy in charge of admissions, and he said that the cut off for spring, as well as last fall, was in the 16 point category. (I.E.- all ppl with 17 pts got in, and some with 16-with the higher GPA's) he said that the cut off has been 17 before, but that's the highest. Hope this helps! Good luck to everyone applying!

    This will be my 3rd time applying. I applied last fall and the cutoff was 17. I was in the 40s as far as alternates. For spring 2013 I was alternate #15. Both times I had 16 points. This time im applying with 17 points and crossing my fingers. Waiting on my cna card to come in the mail so I can turn in my application, currently taking a&p2 and alp that I have left is microbiology. Considering lpn school if I don't get in this time and then doing the career ladder pathway.Good luck to everyone!

    @brit57 - I too have taken a CNA course. I have my state exam scheduled for the 27th (they were WAY booked up!) A friend of mine talked to the guy in charge of admissions for the nursing program, and he said that as long as you have passed your state exam, he can look you up in the system to prove you have your license. So don't stress too much about the paper card. If you don't have it, just make sure he knows to look you up in the system! Good luck on getting in for this fall!!

    It may take a long time for your CNA card to come in. I waited weeks to get mine. If you can I would verify your license online with the OK Nurse Aide Registry
