I have heard that you need to be a student in Spring more than not. Do you have all of your prerequisites completed? I ask because if you need to complete HIN 268 it is completely closed for the Spring semester, and they will not accept a summer course. I believe they also want you taking the HESI exam on their campus. *Anyone please confirm or deny this as being a must so I don't give false information.
I am currently at Lehman but have decided to not apply to their accelerated program because of their painful administration. People do not answer phones or emails by when you need them to (or at all). Their website isn't always up to date and it should be a powerhouse of information if they don't like answering phones. To add ANY SINGLE nursing course, you must gain permission in person, the exact day classes start adding for the semester. Be prepared to wait outside the door before the nursing office opens, or be prepared to sit there for hours, they close as fast as they open. CUNYfirst will show these classes are not full but they are! Lehman's nursing program doesn't use CUNYfirst or update it. That means if you want to know if a class is full or not, you need to call constantly and hope they answer the phone. If you don't live in the Bronx, just hope someone doesn't get there to add the class before you can.
I'm sorry to be a downer but I have been a student at a few CUNYs for years and this administration is truly the worst and not student friendly. It's a great program, but they make it so you are fighting so hard to add classes rather than to actually EXCEL in them. Please apply to other nursing programs
as well just to ensure options. Go to open houses!
If you get into Lehman's and want to go for it, please keep on them and make sure to know exactly when courses can be added, so you can be there first.
