Yo

i think so far only ineligible applicants would have heard something.

I know because I got that "application deemed ineligible" email a while back. I had to follow upand The program director hit me back saying they updated my application pretty much the next day. If I had no chance, would they even have bothered? I have to think they wouldn't, given the obscene amount of applicants.

3.5 nursing gpa,

As in Both anatomys, and 86.7 on the new teas for anyone wondering

@Reyes1810 I too got an ineligible letter about a week and a half ago but it was made in error and they promptly changed it to make me eligible again, so I do wonder if like you said that if I had no chance of getting in then would they really have changed it. What is your school of first and second choice? I have yet to see many other male applicants on this thread or in person. Just curious because I wonder if being a male has any benefit when being considered for admission. I know that's kind of silly and they don't say anything about it, but if so, I hope I don't have to compete against you for my school of first choice (gateway) because we have very similar credentials but you have a better nursing GPA than me!

Does anyone know what classes are calculated in the nursing GPA? Is it the admission classes and any classes you took toward the nursing program? Or is it another set of classes?

I have been getting so many different answers.

I think I can officially say UB looks at your TEAS score more than your GPA. My friend applied and was denied because her TEAS score was a 62, her GPA was a 3.9.

I think that is so unfair because your GPA should reflex what kind of student you are over one TEAS score.

Have you heard anything back?

@Future_Rn2019 Someone (#FutureRN) posted earlier in the this thread with a list of the required classes for admission and completion of the CTCCNP nursing program:

The Nursing GPA is based ONLY on the classes that will count towards your ADN graduation requirements. This includes:

ENG 101 Composition

BIO 211 Anatomy and Physiology I

BIO 212 Anatomy and Physiology II

CSA 105 Intro to Software Applications

CHE 111 Concepts of Chemistry

MAT 137 Intermediate Algebra

BIO 235 Microbiology

PSY 111 General Psychology

PSY 201 Life Span Development

SOC 101 Principles of Sociology

ENG 102 Literature and Composition

HUMANITIES ELECTIVE (Contact school of first choice for list of classes to fulfill this requirement)

** Note: BIO 105 Intro. to Biology (Not included in Nursing GPA)

so any of the courses that you have already taken from that list will count towards your 'nursing' GPA when applying to the program. Obviously, if you have taken any of those required courses outside of the CTCC system then the course grades will likely have different weights (AB = 3.5 while A- = 3.67 etc.) so you will have to calculate all grades accordingly..which makes it difficult.

Also, UB isn't a part of the 6 colleges offering the CTCCNP so I wouldn't take their admissions decisions with too much value when assessing your likelihood of getting accepted to the CTCCNP. Because you are right, the GPA should have the most weight when applying and it says that specifically in the information packet. But, who knows, I haven't heard anything back so I guess we have to wait and see.

Haha well I wouldn't worry too much man, I think we would both qualify as highly competitive applicants. My first choice is Gateway. Being a guy helps I think, theres this initiative at Gateway that basically tries to be more inclusive of men in the program. Men in Nursing – Gateway Community College

I can't see it being supremely helpful, more like, they'll set aside at least 10 spots for guys or something like that.

if I get anywhere within the first 10 spots of the waitlist Im happy.

by the way, did you do most of your pre-reqs at gateway? Ive heard that they try to get more of their own gateway students in there, so, whatever can help!

So for anyone interested, the fall class schedules are posted. Looks like if I get in, I'll be in Waterbury 9:30-11:30 MR, 1:00-2:30 R and Clinicals TW 7:00-3:00 (this is for third semester, nursing 201 and 202). I didn't take note of the nursing 101 class times there. It looks like the rest of the schools are posted. Registration begins April 10, so we should definitely know before then!

I am taking micro and APII together now! I actually have my second test in Micro tomorrow and I am super nervous. My first test for AP didn't go as well as I have hoping but my teacher is cruving our grades so, I'll be okay. I did amazing on my first micro test! Micro isn't actually hard at all just a lot of memorization

That's refreshing to hear about Micro! Everyone talks about it as if it's more difficult than AP- that was concerning considering i want to be able to gauge more of my focus towards Nurs101. I second Reyes1810- You can do it! You are so close, just keep working hard!

I don't know if anyone has noticed but the nursing course days/times are available for fall (just in case anyone was wondering what the program hours were going to be like). On a side note from that, i do know that clinicals are not all the days listed. From what i understand there are different groups who have it on different days to begin with then about halfway through the first semester we get our first placements which could be any shift (day/time). (Capital Students)

We're so close guys!! Two(ish) more weeks... the anticipation is killing me!

So this is the listing for NUR101 at Norwalk:

MT 11:15 am-01:05 pm

MT 11:15 am-01:05 pm

WRFS 07:00 am-01:30 pm

WRF 07:00 am-07:30 pm

WR 03:00 pm-09:30 pm

WR 03:00 pm-09:30 pm

Also omitted from the course offering is the number of seats. :facepalm:

How in the WORLD do you figure out how long you have to be in this class for?? LOL

WRF has class 7am-7:30pm... 3 days a week?? That would be 37.5 hrs a week! When all the other options combined add up to much less... (Combine MT + WRF = 32hrs. MT + WR = 19hrs)

Oops, okay, I think I understand now. That whole list of times is for the whole group of incoming nursing students. Everyone registers for all of those slots. I believe the schedule changes throughout the semester, and that the reason for duplicate slots is when they break into two smaller groups.

Or, maybe I'm completely wrong about everything. Find out soon enough, I hope!

@Reyes1810

I hope I'm not waitlisted! I would like to just get in and stop worrying about it...but no I didn't take any of my pre reqs or any classes for that matter from gateway so I suppose that isn't very helpful, did you?
