Good luck to you, and hopefully this hesi thing does get sorted out. But it's not gonna happen if we all just sit and wait for it to happen :scrying: We need to band together.... But I guess no one will take action until the end of this year, and students start dropping like flies.... Spread the word! It's only way to make a change. I'm trying my best. But I'm only 1 person

How many students left the program during this last year? Were they first or second year students?

Well, we started off with about 100 students. I heard rumors from 2 different instructors that after our midterm this last semester we had at least 50 students drop. But that's counting our classmates that dropped during our first year. Either way, that's a scary number. They even extended the drop date this last semester because so many students relied on this one test to decipher whether or not they should stay with the program. My question is.... Why do we lose so many students? I know that we may lose some... But this many?? I see a huge problem with this, and too many people just turn their cheek.

As for being assigned a school according to where you live?? I heard that this is true. What will be happening is you apply to a CCC. Then if you are accepted, you will be told which school you will be enrolling to.... Sucks if you ask me, because Malcolm X nursing program lost their NLN accredidation. I wouldnt want to go there. Actually, if I had a choice, I would stay away from all CCC!!! But that's just my opinion.

Sorry, not sure. I want to say yes because that's what I had heard from faculty. But there were still a lot of kinks and unknowns that needed to be worked out and answered. So they may postpone until they figure out how all this will pan out. If I hear anything else I will let you know

So much for my last comment. CCC head honchos said they are handling all applications, regardless. Applicants won't be notified until after the beginning of May, 2011

The nursing office said Truman faculty will be handling the applications for Fall 2011. Next year, CCC

I filled the application on line, and when I completed it, it says "your application is not complete until you send transcripts and all documentation before March 15th" where are we supposed to send them to?

i called Dr. Gurney, Director of CCC nursing program, and she said if you applied to one of city college nursing program, there is no need to apply again.

As for the selection process she said and i quote " based on academic competitiveness"

Hello everyone! I was just accepted into Daley's RN program and will start in Fall 2011. Does this HESI abolishment apply to me as well? My friend will be graduating sometime this month, and she scored below the preferred 850 (she scored 650), and said that she and whoever else failed -are required to take a review course, but are still allowed to sit for NCLEX-RN. So, I think this applies to me as well, but I want some hard proof :lol2:. I've been dealing with CCC since 2006 and I'm not going to let some HESI take me down. Let me correct myself, my friend will OFFICIALLY graduate in the summer after she takes the new Human Diversity Requirement that was thrown at the RN students out of no where. Gotta love CCC :crying2:.
