College of New Rochelle 2013


Hi all!

I didn't see any threads for CNR's Accelerated or Individualized program for the upcoming year so I decided to go ahead and start one. Has anyone out there enrolled or is planning to enroll? Who knows anything about the college's reputation? When I completed my FAFSA I had a stat pop up saying that the graduation rate for CNR (cum, not just nursing) was 29% and retention was something like 60%, vs. NYU which was 84% and 92%, respectively. Crazy, right? Not sure where they were pulling the data from...but still raised some questions. Anyway, I enrolled for the Individualized track starting this Jan as I have a few outstanding pre-reqs (sociology, anat & phys II, writing II). Hoping to meet some future classmates on here!

Moved to the New York State Nursing Programs forum.

Did you get the letter from them saying they now require the TEAS. I had a feeling that was coming.


Specializes in surgical, geriatrics. Has 5 years experience.

I haven't been accepted yet but the director of admissions told me I would be eligible for the summer accelerated BSN program EXCEPT I'm missing one math class. I got a C- in precalc in college and they've asked me to take the CLEP to show proficiency. I'm pretty mediocre in the math department--I got my lowest % in the TEAS and NLN in the math portion--has anyone taken the CLEP? How hard is it? Which one is easier--college algebra or college math?

Never heard of the Clep but I really hope they don't ask me to take it. I registered to take the teas but I didn't choose a date yet. I need to find out the deadline so I can have enough time to study and not take away from my current class work.

If you're missing a college math class or got less than a C+ (I was unfortunately in that boat), they will ask you for a class or the CLEP. I am dreading it big time...

I think I got it within two days via email, so quite fast.

I just got my acceptance letter for the accelerated program but I'm going to decline since I got into a closer, less expensive program. I hope the spot goes to one of you :)
