I also live in Brooklyn and was considering their me day program, however I'm concerned about where there locations for their clinicals will be... They're located n southern jersey right? It's a pretty far commute and though their one day Rn program Seems promising-I don't think there's any feasible way for me to get to clinicals on time. I've read the info. On their website and I do believe you have to pick up your assignments for careplans the day before your assigned clinical.

Please share your plans on which program you'll be attending, and how you will commute. It would be very interesting to hear since we both live very far from the campus.

-thanks,

Hey Cece.....im so thrilled to hear you are also considering this program at Cean County College.:heartbeat:loveya: Hmm..pick up the assignment/Careplan the day before??? didnt know that. I am use to traveling outside due to the fact i was attending Trinitas School of Nursing also in Jersey. Which took me an 1 hour and a haif training it, and driving about 50 minutes. I drove sometimes and took the train other times at the time. But now i no longer have a vehicle. So what i did was looked on NJ transit and put the destination in and it gave me 2 hours (Sucks but i hear people have done it) to get there. I work a full time Job so the program 1 day of week is PRICELESS.:yeah:...i thus far have not heard of such a program. Ive never been there but since u havent either..maybe we could meet up if u like to see where it puts us. Also..i googled and saw alot of threads about Ocean County from current students from Allnurses speaking about the 1DAY program....so do that after and tell me what u think....Sooooo i also was thinking bout Hudson Coummunity College but to me right now Ocean's only fault is being Far away....

I have a vehicle too but I also work full-time and am married with 2 kids and I just don't think I would like to spend the time commuting so far even if it only 1 day a week (not including going the night before for care plans). This program is so unique. I wish they would implement more programs like it. It really does fit the need for people who have busy schedules. If they opened up a school like this in NYC people would flock to it!!

I'm not sure when you're looking to apply but I probably have about another year of pre-reqs before I start applying to programs, but I'm researching now since competition in NYC is ridiculous and I'll need to start taking all the pre-reqs I need now for all of the programs I'm looking to apply to.

Have you heard of Holy Name Hospital in Teaneck, NJ (about 25 minutes from the brooklyn bridge). They are a hospital with their own Nursing School located on the same area as the hospital (where most of the clinicals are done). They're not too pricey but in no ways can compare to the affordability of OCC. The program is a diploma program with the option to take 3 additional credits to receive the associate's. I have family right in that area and was also considering moving to teaneck - it's a really beautiful area. They also have are top ranked for the NCLEX.
