Prospective Ocean County College, NJ RN student

  1. Hello Everyone,

    I am new to, however I believe this site might be of much help to me as I embark on this trip through the Ocean County College nursing program (hopefully!!). Does anyone have any tips/advice for me...I currently hold a BA from Rutgers (in Economics, ha!) and OCC applied 18 RU prereq credits...I only have A&P 1 and 2 to take and I will be able to apply for admission?!? (And put on the list?!...not really sure how this whole thing works). Anyway, I plan on taking A&P1 this fall (professor Reischer?!--anyone have him??? Any thoughts???) and A&P 2 in the Spring of '11...after which it is waiting time!?! I also plan on working full-time while taking my A&P's at night, however I don't know if I'll be able to fit nursing classes into my 9-5 work schedule once I am actually in the nursing program.........Anyone else out there who's decided business world is just not for them and they want to go into nursing?!? Or am I the only one if anyone has any thoughts or advice for me, it will be much appreciated !! Thanks a bunch!!!

    Many people at OCC have changed careers and decided to go into nursing. Most hospitals in the area are not hiring AAS nurses, it helps to have a bachelors degree in something.
