2012 CCP Nursing program - Page 8Register Today!
- Mar 27, '12 by cupidsqueen420Hey just to let you know.. the program only accepts 135 students, that being said.. they take people who scored an overall 9 and 8 always and then possibly 7's. I don't think a 6 is even eligible unless they had a really bad year with applicants doing poorly. Also you had to score higher than a 15 on the AHT to even be considered or awared any points for taking it so the counselor you spoke to is misinformed. Everyone that I've talked to on here scored a 20 or higher on the AHT. Acceptance letters are still being sent out (someone received one late last week i believe) but with an overall 6 i don't know how good your chances are.(not trying to be rude or anything) Also you taking the classes that link to the program and only having nursing classes left has no bearing whether you get in or not. (i know that is stupid but thats how it works). The school doesn't even look at what classes you've taken to make a determination only that you have a c or higher in chem and bio at the highschool level, your current gpa, and your AHT score are recorded in the point system and the point system is what they base your acceptance on. Time has nothing to do with it.. in fact the earlier you applied and took your AHT the earlier you heard about admission. There are 5 other people on this forum.. 3 of us heard about our acceptance before the end of Feb. the other 2 just received notice recently. You will definitely get a letter no matter what.. you can check your cirriculum in your MyCCP account to see if your major has been changed. Some people saw their majors change prior to getting their acceptance letters. I do know that orientation packets are supposed to be going out in the next few weeks for those that were accepted so if you do not hear anything by the end of April.. then i would get worried. Hope this helps!

- Mar 28, '12 by ManScrubzQuote from bcolli11Honeslty no one here can really make a sound judgment on whether you'll get in or not. It's not up to anyone here...I got in with certain odds against me...im on academic probation for 3 withdrawals within a two year period but I'm also on academic honors for having a gpa of 3.7 and I scored 21 on the AHT. I do know this...this was a real bad year because there were a lot of low GPA's and AHT test scores so GOOD LUCKHello everyone
Ok I'm a little worried, no scratch that, I'm very worried. I took my AHT on 2\23\12 and I have not heard a single thing from CCP. Sadly I only got a 6 however I talked with the counselor about my chances at getting in and she stated that probably not but considering I took most of the classes required while in nursing-- except for the actual nursing classes-- and have a
B.S. already she stated that I still have a pretty good chance at getting in. In addition to that, she stated that most of the individuals who took AHT got below a 15 and that has was weird to say the least, so that coupled with my degree and the classes I already took gave me hope the I would get in but I still haven't heard anything. I need some thoughtful words of encouragement or a straight forward "your not getting in" type of response from all of you who already got there acceptance letters. In closing, I would like to ask two questions
1. If I was denied, how come I haven't gotten a letter yet ? Were they sent out already ?
2. I heard the longer you wait the better your chances are; so does that mean I'm still being considered ? Or they just haven't got around to sending out my denial letter lol ?
Whoever can shed some light on this stressful situation it would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance !!!!!
- Mar 28, '12 by ManScrubzQuote from NNPwannabeDo you know how likely it is to get an alternate clinical time...im asking because I work overnight and am trying to guage whether I should purchase a vehicle or notThey also use Lankenau and Holy Redeemer. Clinicals are 7am-1 pm. They may have alternate clinical times and will ask for volunteers for those times. Unfortunately you dont get to pick where you have your clinical at, you get whatever they give you.

- Mar 28, '12 by NNPwannabeQuote from ManScrubzThey send an email to all the students listing the alternate clinical times and locations. Its on a first come,first serve basis so the first students to respond will get those times. This the email i received last year for the alternate clinical times:Do you know how likely it is to get an alternate clinical time...im asking because I work overnight and am trying to guage whether I should purchase a vehicle or not
Here are the list of clinical sites with alternate times. If you are interested in one of these slots, please email me today. Because we have some students in lab today until 12:15pm, I will take email requests begininng at 1pm. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, you must be absolutely certain that you can attend clinical during this time before volunteering. Changes to the clinical assignment will not be made once you have been assigned to a site.
Lankenau Hospital - Thurs 2-6pm, and Friday 7-3pm
Thomas Jefferson University Hospital - Wednesday 2-8pm, Thursday 6:45 - 12:45pm
Holy Redeemer - Wednesday 2-8pm, Thursday 2-8pm
- Mar 28, '12 by NNPwannabeQuote from cupidsqueen420I'm not sure how true that is because we were told that they want us to be prepared to travel to wherever they decide to place you. It doesnt matter where you live or where you work or if you have to arrange child care, you have to be able to get to and from your clinical site. It would be sooo nice to get a hospital thats close to where you live, but its not guaranteed.I heard they go by your zipcode in choosing where your clinicals will be.. is there any truth in that?
- Mar 30, '12 by bcolli11Just spoke with the Nursing counselor and being that she is the closest person, that I know of, to the admissions process, I chose to believe what she said. She stated that I'm still being considered. In addition she stated that they were now considering individuals who accumulated 6 points, which was my score. After the end of the conversation she urged me to be patient which, to me, implied that I just had to wait for my acceptance letter. Any thoughts ???? For me, it seems that my odds of getting in have increased however I don't want to put, for lack of better words, all my eggs in one basket.
- Mar 30, '12 by ManScrubzduring this time of year i'd say patience is the best thing because almost every local program has passed application deadline...so the "eggs in one basket" idiom would have to wait til next year...keep hope alive though
