    I'm actually not a student at CCRI lol. I go to RIC, but again, I did a quick search on the website and found this link: https://bannerweb.ccri.edu:9443/pls/...disp_dyn_sched

    Just search for available classes according to the term (i.e., Summer 2010). If not, you could always call the school to get the info you need. Hope that helps!!

    Nursing 1 class is two/three hours in the morning twice a week and clinicals are also two days 7-3 pm. So four days total, FYI, in class all they do is read off power points, so its not really vital for you to be there.

    I know at my campus they take attendance and if you objected to a question on a test they would go back and see if you attended class on the day the material was lectured on. If you missed class then they pretty much didn't give you a leg to stand on. I do agree that you shouldn't focus on the lectures but try to focus more on the reading material, thats where the test questions come from. Nursing 1 clinical usually begins with 3 weeks in the nursing lab going over basic CNA stuff and watching videos, then a few weeks in a nursing home and then the remainder of the semester is medsurg in a hospital.

    And this is why I'm currently doing my pre-reqs for nursing at CCRI....no waiting list!!! I've met so many students who were waiting at RIC.....one for 2 years! not for me thankyouverymuch!

    That, and I had an awful AWFUL experience with RIC as a whole during the three semesters I was there as a communications major. I will NEVER go back there. Ugh.

    But I agree. While a BSN is "better", for many people(like myself), it makes sense to go the ADN-RN RN-BSN route. I'd rather pay under $5k a year and get my RN, rather than loads of money for 4 years, you know?

    But at the end of the day.....no waiting list!! haha

    Sorry you had a bad experience at RIC, that's a shame. But to clear things up, there actually is no waiting list at RIC. You either get in or you don't; they admit the students with the best grades. I had all A's and B's in my prereq courses and had no problem getting in, am paying $6000/year in tuition (lowest 4-year college tuition around) and I'm graduating in May with a BSN....not too shabby

    I'm glad to see that CCRI no longer has a waiting list, merit based admissions is so much better. Good luck getting into nursing school!

    ............................ I posted but saw this was like a year old!

    I go to ccri and I love it. I checked out other programs and schools and time and time again kept hearing they have the best program. I feel I made a good decision in this after much research and referrals from friends (and strangers) in the medical field.
    All I can say is choose your school according to what you want and need, I'm going for my adn but will continue all the way to NP. What matters is your competency, ability and determination to do your best.
