I would like to wish all applicants the best of luck! This waiting part is very stressful :eek: I am trying to be optimistic and think of a plan B, C, D! CCAC is not the only nursing program in the city. I want to get accepted, but if I don't I will give myself a day or two to sulk :crying2: but then move on! I think they need to do away with the NET, and look at each student as a whole. I have a 3.8 GPA and scored a 82 composite on the NET.

Everyone keep your heads up. If you don't get in, don't let that stop you from reaching your dream! For those of you that get in..work hard and good luck! :yeah:

I called the nursing department to check on when they were sending letters (I'm obsessed, I can't help it). The woman said November 5 or maybe a little bit later. Which knowing CCAC means an extra week or two. :o I just wish they would pick one date to send out letters and stick to it. Everytime I call I get a different answer and it's always been pushed back.

***?! The people that get into the program ave to get vaccinated and get clearances. They will have things they need to do in order to prepare for the program that take up a good amount of time!

If I am accepted in the the program, I know that once we get our nursing class schedules that the only open a&pII class will be available to me will just muck (f***) up my schedule.:angryfire This goes for all of us. They said the last week of October and it'll be half way through November. This is terrible!

Sorry that i'm venting on here, i know you all feel the same way.

Hello again everyone..

Soo... i called the nursing department today, only because I'm really on edge about this, and she told me some news that made me want so reach thru the phone and slap someone. :) just kidding, but now seriously, she told me they wont be sent out for another week and a half. This is getting just plain ridiculous.:down:

Feeling everyones pain!

OK WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH CCAC! HOW FREAKING LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GO THROUGH APPLICATIONS??????? IN OTHER PROGRAMS PEOPLE ARE NOTIFIED WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME FRAME THIS IS ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!!!! I AGREE THAT EVERY TIME YOU CALL YOU GET TOLD SOMETHING DIFFERENT, WHICH IS UNCALLED FOR THEY NEED TO GET THEIR STORY STRAIGHT AND GIVE A DEFINITE DATE THAT LETTERS WILL BE MAILED PERIOD!:angryfire I too am worried about scheduling other classes they told me to schedule the classes that I needed and if I get accepted to drop/ add. That works ok for me but what about people who need to take A&P 1 or A&P 2 those classes fill up fast. If you have to change it you may not be able to get in!!! bad.png I am soooooooooo very frustrated by all of this. Someday we will get our letters hopefully before next fall.....LOL I too am just venting I have to remind myself that someday I will look back on this and joke about it, but right now it's not funny.

I know how you guys feel! I applied the first week in January and I didn't get an acceptance letter until the first week of May. That's 5 months I had to wait!

Thank you for sharing,:nuke: It makes me feel a little better knowing that someone else who got accepted went through waiting a long time too. Can you tell me did you have enough time to get everything that you needed done? Like scheduling other classes, clearances,..............etc or were you really pressed for time before class started....BTW how are classes going?

I got my letter the first week of May and everything- titers, drug tests, clearances, etc- had to be turned in to the school by July 14 or else I would lose my seat. I had turned in everything on time except for my TB results, so I went to the health department and the DON told me CCAC had called and told her to excpect me to show up. Don't wait until the last minute. Save up enough money now because you'll have to pay for your titers ($60), clearances, fingerprints, drug tests, etc. (I tried to submit my titer and TB results from work to CCAC, but the school wouldn't accept them.)Once that important stuff is taken care of, then you can focus on books and uniform.

School is challenging, but I'm doing good. There are lots of readings and and we alternate between exams and quizzes every week. Clinical kind of sucks, depending on what kind of nurse you are working with. Some nurses like to teach and answer questions and others just think your a CNA for the day. Plus there's a lot of paper work to do!

Thank you Choco for sharing! I know that some schools require a CPR certificate. Are we going to need that to start the program? Are we going to need to purchase anything other than books, uniforms and a stethoscope? I don't mean to hound you but i'm antsy and want to focus on being as prepared as possible (i feel like i'm throwing myself to the wolves! LOL!)

I hope that your classes are going well and that clinicals get better for you!

I'd be willing to bet that the letters are mailed on Friday, meaning most local people would get them on Saturday. That way, they get less calls to the office, (since they are received on a weekend). A lot of places seem to do this. Just an idea. Good luck!
