Hello All! I've recently applied to Collin College-previously Collin County Community College for the Fall 2010 cycle. I was wondering If I had 14 points is it possible that I get in? I know it's so competitive. Did anyone get in... Read More

    For Collin Applicants or anyone considering Collin for an ADN, here is a reply to my inquiry about our accreditation status. The original email was:
    >>>>Dear NLN,
    Thank you for promoting high standards and excellence in nursing! I have a quick quick question that hopefully can be answered without too much investment on your part.

    Per your website, Collin College, formerly Collin County Community College, is accredited and has been since 1993. Has the school ever been on probation or had it's accreditation suspended? Please let me know. Thank you in advance for the time and effort!

    Sincerely,
    Gregory <<<<


    The reply from the NLN Accreditation Committee was thus:
    >>>>NLNAC is unable to provide the information you are seeking. Since NLNAC neither “suspends” nor puts programs on “probation” you will need to contact the program directly or their current accrediting agency.

    NLNAC can provide you information on whether the Collin College was NLNAC accredited in a specific year and you can search our website at www.nlnac.org under NLNAC Accredited Nursing Programs to find out if the program is currently NLNAC accredited.

    Collin College's accreditation status is already provided above. This is the last I have to say to defend the program and the professors I've come to know thus far, at this time. *group hug* Let's move on, in a positive, productive manner.


    CONGRATULATIONS LGrotjan!!!! I'll be there Friday, feel free to stop by and see the lab if you have the time. We have an awesome new birthing mannequin in our sim lab. I'll be in the hospital lab or across the hall doing laundry. If only that glass slipper had fit....

    Hi MyTwoGirls2010,
    I'll be in the lab around 09:30, after turning in my weekly clinical paperwork and returning the wheelbarrow I used to deliver it back to the shed. Just kidding, it's not that bad, and you get a bit more used to the paperwork, and better at it, as time goes on. I'll see you Friday!

    I'm sure this is late, but I don't want to argue about what school is better. I love Collin County. LOVE IT! The classes are hard, and they do have a low tolerance for bull spit , but you learn soooo much.
    The instructors care, but you need to show them that your giving it your all and you are trying to understand what is being taught. They want to help you, don't be afraid to ask for it. Collin county isn't for everyone, but it is a good school. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but you should choose for your self, what school is the best fit for you.

    To answer your question..........yes it is possible to get in with at 14. traditionally you have a better chance in getting into a January start date, than in the fall. But it is possible.

    Good luck and hopefully my answer helped a little bit.

    Hello everyone,

    I am looking for someone to take on the excelsior rn program journey with me. Is there anyone out there who has gone this route? I'm a Registered Respiratory Therapist. I'm starting in 2 weeks.

    Hello everyone! I just got my letter yesterday and I was put on the waiting list for CCCC. I have also applied to Grayson but really want to get in at CCCC. Can anyone tell me how the waiting list works? Has anyone ever been on the waiting list and not get in? How long does it take to find out if you are being brought in off of the waiting list?

    Any information regarding this process will be very helpful.

    Thanks in advance for the help!!!

    I just got in to the Fall 2011 cycle. Pretty sure they wait until they determine how many will be accepting the invitation to start, then calculate how many spaces left they have. If 5 then I guess they take the first 5 off the list. You should call them and they probably can give you some info. on where exactly you stand on that waiting list. Best of Luck!

    The wait list is usually huge and most do not get in, but a few do. If you talk to the nursing office they can let you know where you stand on the list and what your chances are of getting in.

    RN2BDFW is right. My friend is waitlisted and called and has a meeting with them next Thursday so she knows what to expect.
