    It's not directly speaking of the NURSING program. It's in regards to ALL the programs. It's about all CCC's. The changes she is trying to make will affect us too.
    ah ok thanks. i sure hope that HESI thing is fixed. I am applying this year and hopefully everything is sorted out by next year. I have been reading horror stories about HESI test.

    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 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

    thanks. I have one more question. I have been hearing rumors about dividing ccc students based on where they live. Like north side students -> truman. South side -> Daley college. Do you know when it is going to be implemented? do you have any info about it ?

    thanks

    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

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

    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

    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"
