To gain admission I was told you have to have at least 15 transferable credits, I recommend get as many as you can. Also you want to make sure you have at good GPA. Out all of the classes I took at TCC, 19 of my credits apply to their nursing program. Could have had more but my first few semesters I was figuring things out so some of the classes didn't count. Here is a link to the page that shows what classes at a community college equate to the classes they have in their curriculum: http://cofvb.hamptonu.edu/docs/Trans...rev_071111.pdf
I hope this will help you out, it really helped me. When I spoke to a rep in the nursing dept she recommended I get my science classes out of the way as well as my communications class. I especially recommend getting your sciences done. I just found out I have to defer my enrollment due to unforeseen circumstances in my home so I will be attending TCC to finish up a few more classes in the Fall and then I will start at Hampton U in the Spring. As far as schedule, there is not a set time frame you go to class. Your schedule basically depends on what classes you need to take that semester. For example if I was to attend school in the Fall then I would have went to class on Mon from 9am-11:50am and 1:00pm-2:50pm, on Thurs 2:00pm-4:50pm, and on Fri 9:00am-11:50am.
