I am outraged at how bad things are getting for the pre-nursing students at CCAC. They change policies about the classes in the middle of the night and don't tell anyone and trying to get correct information from advisement is... Read More

    I think. . .your frustration with not getting into the program is understandable, and if what you indicate about your grades is true you probably just have to reapply and wait. But (as someone else mentioned) the list of prerequisites are the *minimum* required to apply to the program. There is no guarantee of admissions here or to any program: that's just a fact of life.

    Of COURSE they made the requirements more strict when they didn't have enough seats, and understandably so. That's not illegal or grounds for a lawsuit that's just how admissions works.

    Well, I apologize for the way I came off it was just upsetting seeing that you were plotting against and blaming the school as if they commited some awful injustice. There are other schools and CCAC is the one you chose. There were rumors about this for over a year and unfortunatly you didnt have enough classes done in time for the change. Instead of complaining and saying your going to sue a school that has the right to do what they want in their selection process, you should just take the 2 or 3 extra classes and apply for spring next month or next fall. There was no surprise the application stated exactly how they would be choosing people yet you applied with anyhow knowing your current situation. Of course your upset, you were expecting an acceptance letter, but you shouldnt have applied after you found out the new criteria because there were hundreds who had taken those courses and would get placed above you during this application period. You should have enrolled in the other courses as soon as your situation permitted you to. Im sure you are a wonderful canidate but just a few classes short of being competitive which can be easily fixed in a semester or two.Everyone was affected just the same by the change and some were just more prepared by doing more than the minimum courses.

    Well said Mizz1371. After having many friends complete CCAC's nursing program, I can tell you, if you do not have those prerequisite courses done, you are setting yourself up for failure no matter how smart you are.

    so even if you were not informed before january 15th from keeping up with the website, your advisors, nursing office staff, or even your fellow pre-nursing classmates about the rumors of the removal of the pax and change in gpa requirements a potential applicant would have been well aware of it before turning in their application. so completely reading your application packet could have prevented anyone from being unpleasantly surprised when acceptance/rejection letters came out.
    tpejjj is far more right than wrong!! i have been dealing with the nursing program and their unethical -and probably illegal practices for many months. they don't know sh*t from shinola. i could add a lot to the first message as i have so much of this crap in writing through emails and letters sent to me following up meetings that i have had with higher-ups. i highlighted the above information because it seems logical that that would be a wise way to find out information but i was chastised for talking to further to people at the school as well as looking more at the website than i was supposed to, my age and the fact that i have a degree in another field were used against me because they thought i should "know" certain things regarding their processes.

    just because some people get through a process unscathed doesn't mean that everyone has.

    I feel your pain I totally qualify and was denied because early on in my college career I dropped and failed courses but I retook them with As and I currently have a 4.0 grade point average and all generals finished. I really feel like it should say on the application YOU WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED IF U WITHDRAWED OR FAILED IN THE PAST. I'm so discouraged and am looking to be reconsidered I didn't have the luxury back then of living at home with mom and taking one class per semester and I balanced two kids two jobs at times to survive and full time school but I messed up. That doesn't mean that's who I am today I have straight As now and have redeemed myself and they just denied me and didn't see that!
