Cerritos College vs. Long Beach City College

Posted

Hi,

I just wanted to know peoples thoughts on both schools. If you are in the program in either campus, How do you like it? How are your teachers? Or I even would like to hear what you have heard about the programs in either colleges.

They both have a good reputation as nursing schools. The NCLEX pass rate for both is excellent. I'd just like to know how the teachers are. Any info would be great.:)

there are a few threads on cerritos... just search it :)

Hi Apgar10

I found your posts about Cerritos and they were really helpful. Thanks for taking your time to reply. I'm accepted into Cerritos and will be starting in January! I really like the campus. Right there I can say is a big plus compared to LBCC which I didn't get into. Things fortunately happen for a reason and after reading your posts I feel a lot better coming in this Spring. Our Orientation teacher seems really nice too. I keep hearing from a friend going to LBCC right now that her teachers were kind of mean. No offense to anyone going there right now who reads this.

Anyways, I am so excited. If you have any tips I'd love some but I'll probably go back and read some of your posts anyways. I'll start soon on everything they suggested to do. Take care!

sooooooo how was the first day? :yeah:

Hi Apgar

Nervous, crazy, hectic. Learning outcomes are taking a lot of time, reading assignments are so long!! I am so scared! so crazy....having anxiety already. lol

So far the first week is good! Very exciting learning new things and meeting new people. Plus the teachers are super nice and helpful. How was your first week Apgar?

Apgar is not new student, I think she was admitted Spring 10. so she's a year ahead of us. LOL. And from what I heard, thirst semester is the toughest. I love Cerritos College, teachers are super nice and they really help you and not just leave you there on ur own. so glad I am not at any other schools.

Application dates are March 1 to 15 every year. I heard they got about 450 applications this last time. Don't know how many of those were from LVNs. Work hard... LVNs sometimes have a tough time in the program. http://cms.cerritos.edu/registered-nurse/nursing-homepage

Hi Everyone,

My name is Mony. Recently I got accepted for both schools, Cerritos and LBCC. I am still thinking about which school should I go for it. I would love to hear advice or recommendation regarding to the situation in both school. If anyone can share, I do appreciated it.
