For the RN program in Hostos, you need to go through:
(1) finish all the prerequisite courses(A&P 1, Chem 1 and 2, Pschology and some English).
(2) preclinical period: one semester. Students' need to take Nursing Concept (2-credit course).Students have test very week they meet.
(3) After you pass nursing concept with a "C", then you are officially labeled as "a nursing student". After another 2 years, then you are done.
I am taking Nursing concept this year and I think it is tough although I get all "A"s in all science courses. But the professor is good.
Still I am transferring next semester, to an Accelerated Program, because the program at Hostos is too long for me. BTW, since your gf already has a BA, why not go to some Accelerated one-year program?
Good luck to her.
Quote from hobbs39
My gf has decided to try a career in nursing after getting a BA in Criminology from John Jay last year. She got a late start in choosing schools and enrolled at Hostos CC in the Bronx this past semester, mostly taking pre-reqs (Psych, Med Terminology, Chem I). She was looking to get an Assoc in nursing to start. She was thinking about transferring but after reading here about how hard it is to get a seat in these CC programs, she is having second thoughts. The director of the program is really trying to keep her in HOSTOS and I was wondering why.
Does anyone know how good the HOSTOS nursing program is? How about other Community College programs such as BMCC or Bronx CC or LaGuardia?
Thanks in advance
