    I think I might be able to provide a few tips for you! First you should call registration and tell them you are interested in the nursing program and need to speak with an advisor who knows requirements for that program. As for financial aid, CCRI also have people who can guide you through that as well. Take a look at the CCRI website and it will provide phone numbers for the different departments. Sometimes these people can be less than helpful, don't let that discourage you, you just have to be persistent. Some of the prereqs include: intro to health, anatomy, phisiology, microbiology, dosage calculations, general psych, dev. psych, and a humanities elective. Once all prereqs are completed, then you can apply for the nursing program. The nursing program is performance based, so the higher your GPA the sooner you will be able to start your clinicals. I'm at the point where I have completd all prereqs and waiting to hear if I have been accepted into the January 2009 day program. Hope this has helped and best of luck!

    I'm reading these posts seeing that it takes 2-3 years for your spot on the waiting list to expire?! wait, does that mean you take your generals, apply right away during the 1st year of your generals and then do the nursing program for the remaining 2 years out of the 4??? Thanks! btw, how hard is it to be accepted into the nursing program?? what do they take into consideration? or do you just get automatically accepted when you get accepted into the ccri college itself and then just wait for a spot to be open??
