    Hi, I'm a student at CCRI and I was wondering, does the CCRI Nursing Program accept students with a GPA of 3.25? I know the requirement is 2.7 but I read a blog about someone not getting accepted with a GPA of 4.0 :spin:

    Congratualtions!! Happy for ya! I'll be applying this February.By the way for those who need to apply, I spoke to someone from the Nursing Department and they said that October and June are the most competitive application periods.

    mgalano- if you call the nurse at ccri or email her she can give you labs and clinics that you can go to that will give you a discount on your titers and immunizations. I got my Hep a and b vaccinations free that way. The Hep b series would have cost me $300- with insurance. Hope this helps.

    I just found out that I will be getting health insurance as of January 1st (instead of feb) is that cutting it too close to the start date (january 24th) i know i will need to get the tb tests done because they need to be 2 weeks apart

    Just curious to the poster who got in Lincoln 2011 with a 3.2 overall gpa, What were your 3 grades for anatomy, physiology, dosage? If the school is saying that October is the most competitive, and you got in with an overall 3.2 but other applicants I know applied this enrollment with an over all 3.8-4.0 and an A in the 3 above classes used for priority tie breakers for admissions, got rejections.. Really makes me wonder what CCRI is really doing in the "competitive admissions" selection.
    Not saying you don't deserve to be in the program or your not a good student, but CCRI nursing staff wrote the rules and set the standards, yet they are not following their own rules based on the fact that your gpa is lower than others you got in and they did not. They were already busted some time ago for taking bribes to bump students on the long waiting list to the front of the line over others. Now that they claim to be "performance based" we look at numbers/scores only and take the highest first is obviously not true. Sad really all the hoops you got to jump through just TO BE ACCEPTED never mind complete the program, and now new grads will be unemployed for quite some time after school.

    in anatomy i got a B+, physiology i got a B and dosage i got a A, in micro I got a B+

    and why are the new grads unemployed? Fortunately for me I know the VP of a boston area hospital and won't need to wait for employment.

    and also, they applied in the October open enrollment and already received their rejection? did they receive it via email? my friend is still waiting to hear from them. they called me and emailed me telling me I was accepted.
