Has anyone else applied to Harford's Fall 2017 Nursing program?

I recently attended their drop-in session, where we were given information on the new admission requirements, as well as a tour of the clinical labs, classrooms, etc. I was impressed!

Hello Brooke,

I did apply and I'm very nervous since my GPA isn't that high, only 3.4 and my TEAS is 65%. Also, I took all my prerequisites at CCBC. So I'm still hoping I'll get in.

3.4 isn't bad at all! Did you try doing your points on the new worksheet?

The advisors told us that 12-14 is competitive to get in. The points system has been revamped from previous years,and although you have to take the TEAS, it doesn't have a lot of weight on their decision, it's mainly your GPA and the new points system. 65% is proficient, which is mainly what they're looking for.

I think you should have a good shot!

Thank you! I hope so too! I got 15 and I have heard a lot of people getting in with a points of 19-23. I hope I'll be fine! How about you? What's your points? I want to apply for the ATB nursing program. I wanna do the HCC and Towson program. How about you?

I have 16 points, so I'm hoping for acceptance too! It's confusing with the new point system they're using this cycle, but like the advisor said, 12-14 is competitive, so hopefully we're good!

I was thinking of doing the ATB through Towson, but I have a 7 year old little girl, so I don't want to be completely overwhelmed and have no time for her. Depending on how the first semester goes, I may look into it more, or wait until I finish the RN program.

Best of luck! The wait is so stressful!

Hi! I applied for summer/fall 2017 with the summer accelerated as my first preference then fall traditional. I also have 16 points. I'm in A&P2 now my last prereq and have a 3.7 nursing GPA and an 82% TEAS test score. I'm hoping to get into one of the programs but nervous. Have y'all gotten a verification email or anything saying they received your application or anything?
