Hi Folks,

I plan to apply to the BHCC for the associates' degree, which would start in Winter 2010. Has anybody else here attended BHCC? What are the students like? What are the rotations like? Do you develop a nursing specalization during the program? Is it possible to get a job in the ER after graduation? How is BHCC regarded among potential employers?

Really, I'd appreciate any and all information form other prospectives, current students, or alumni/ae.

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

I have no attended BHCC but I did attend the nursing information session today and it was helpful. I also plan on applying to BHCC at some point depending when I finish my pre reqs. Have you attended an information session yet? Well anyway I really like what I have heard about the program but the woman who is the head of the nursing department made it quite clear today that it is a highly competitive program. It did make me a little nervous hearing this but I guess no matter where you apply it is going to be very competitive. I am not sure about what the students are like because I do not attend the school but going today there was a variety ages and ethenicities as well as both male and females. From what I underestood today the only time you really focus in on a speciality in nursing is when you are going to school to become a NP. As far as getting a job in the ER, I know CNA's who work in the ER so although I do not know personally if after attending BHCC RN's have gone on to work in the ER, I would assume you could as long as you pass the state exam to become an RN. She did tell us today that Boston hospitals have not been hiring new grads but she said not to worry because there are PLENTY of jobs in the surrounding cities and towns. Hope I helped a little. Good Luck!

I was there too!

The program director said that after they've invited the first round of people to apply, a wait list is also created. She said that the wait list tends to be pretty short, though.

I wonder how BHCC creates the wait list. Do they specify a certain number of people who are ranked below the first round of invites? Is the wait list just of everybody who fulfills the preadmission requirements, but who didn't rank as high as the first round of invites?

At any rate, good luck to you in your application process.
