Hi, Just wondering if anyone has received their acceptance letters for the fall 2012 program yet and if so how many points did you have?... Read More

    Cupidsqueen for the clinicals I honestly just registered for the first one. I figured they all look the same and they'd put me wherever they put me and I'll see where I end up. It would be nice to have some say where we go, though, but either way it will be good to get some varied experiences.

    Bcolli I was told that they only accept 9's, 8's and 7's, but I'm sure if not enough people scored that high they would start considering 6's to fill the 135 spots. Perhaps they're filling as those who were offered spots are sending back declines if they prefer to go elsewhere. I will pray for the best for you.

    I'm well aware that they only accept 9's,8's,and 7's as I've been told that from numerous people on here along with actually reading it in my student's manual. If it's meant to be than it's meant to be thus my decision to not post on here again until I'm accepted.

    during 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
    Will do !!!! Just to clear up what must have been some confusion in what I wrote, CCP was the only school I applied to along with being fully aware of my options and the consequences that would result in me only applying to one school. When I say "eggs in one basket" I'm more or less conveying my belief that I will be accepted based on what I'm being told.

    It was nice to meet some of you at the CPR training. I must saying I'm getting a bit nervous about finding a job, even though I haven't started school yet. I hoped to work at the hospital near where I live because they're the only place that accepted ASN nurses without a year experience. I'm volunteering there this summer and hoped they would hire me as an aid while in school. Anyway, I just checked their employment listings and it appears they changed everything. You now need a BSN to be a nurse there, and a be a BSN student to work as an aid. Even the long term care facilities don't take new nurses. Yikes. Are you all concerned, too, or is it just me? I guess now's our time to start networking!

    Yeah I just registered for the first available as well. If they offer the alternate clinical times I guess you would then be able to pick your hospital based on if you are one of the first to accept the alternate times.

    I'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.

    Yeah I wasn't sure. I forget who told me that but I wasn't sure how accurate it was. I prepared myself to just do whatever they make me do so it doesn't matter to me where I have to go..of course it would be more convenient to be close to home but I was prepared to be downtown for most of my stuff. I guess if they offer the additional clinical times and places you have a better chance of getting what you want if you response right away.

    Hello everyone,

    I have just recently gotten accepted for the 2012 nursing semester(literally got the letter today). I was surprised to say the least, since I got a C last semester in Chemistry.

    I was actually 99% sure I wouldn't get in. Either way, it's a surprise, and congrats to everyone else that has gotten in! I plan on giving my check this week, does anyone know how the class selection/physicals and all that stuff starts?

    Hey cupidsqueen420, my e-mail is cjettel1@ccp.edu. Hopefully it's not too late to come to your cpr session.
    TeenBean87 I'm sorry I wasn't able to get you added to our group however, I can try to arrange another group if you are interested. One of the girls that was supposed to make it to the first class was unable to and the woman who conducts the class would be more than willing to do another one if I can get another group together. I need at least 3-4 people and we would have to arrange a meeting place. Let me know if you are interested and I can see what I can do.

    Pazuzu, There are 4 portions for the nursing class that you have to register for.. a lecture, seminar, lab, and clinical. Most of the dates and times are the same so there isn't much to chose from. All classes are during the day for lecture, lab and seminar. The clinicals only show day times available but I was told from someone who was accepted last year and was unable to attend that they may email us with additional clinical times on a first come first serve basis. We should all be receiving orientation packages in the mail within the month because orientation is usually the first week of May. At the time of orientation you must have completed the following..criminal background check, child abuse clearance, drug screening, CPR certification, and proof of health insurance. The orientation package will have all the information you need to get all of those done. Hope this helps.

    I see, that makes sense. So do we need to complete the criminal check/CPR certification and stuff BEFORE the orientation, or do we get told AT orientation when we need to do those things?
