So excited I just got accepted into the CCP Nursing program for the fall 2009!!! YAY!!!...I was wondering if anybody knew if there was some sort of deposit that is required in order to hold my spot for the fall?

Thanks

Congrats.

Yes, it was on the acceptance letter (got one too). You have to send $50 and that little card back within two weeks (might be three) or they give your spot to someone else.

Orientation is in May...

congrats to you too! i didnt get a little card to send back about the deposit i guess i will have to go to the nursing department this week...thanks.

My deposit request didn't come at the same time my acceptance letter did- I think I got it 2 weeks later. But it was $50.

I am thinking about applying to the nursing program to begin in September of 2010. This hole point system is making me nervous! I already have a BS and graduated with a GPA of 3.1 and I have no F's or W's, so based on this system I heard about I should already have 5 points. Is the Allied Health Test hard or it is something I shouldn't be worried about? And would an 8 be good enough to get in?

you should be fine...they take the 9's, 8's, and 7's first. The AHT isn't hard at all...it's just fast...the content itself is easy but most complained they ran out of time. I myself am one of those test takers that read and re-read questions to be clear...you don't have time for that here... I would say just work on increasing your speed. Good luck!

I was so anxious about the AHT and it ended up being a piece of cake. The problems that stuck me up were the mixed fractions ones. Do you have to take many prerequisites at CCP? I took enough classes there to qualify for applying as a CCP student instead of a student with a BA, and since I was getting much better grades as a CCP student that worked in my favor.

I only will have to take maybe 4 or 5 courses: a&p 1 and 2, micro, nutrition and maybe the 2nd part of english comp-- my college only required 1 part for english comp. I am hoping to start with some courses this fall and then apply for nursing in October.

Also, I am hearing all different stories with people who already have a BA, do I have to take the AHT or no? I read on the website that I may be exempt from taking it. But, then where would the other 3 points come from or would they be guaranteed?

Everyone has to take the AHT. You used to not have to if you had a BA, but this changed. I recommend going to an application orientation as soon as one is offered. They'll answer a lot of questions and the website is out of date and not as helpful as a sit down with them.

I guess this changed according to hiddencat, but yea that was a problem with the system. When I first applied, I did so as a BA holder, which gave me 2 points in lieu of the aht, but that only brought my total points to 6 (since I had 2 w's from my previous degree). Where as had my AHT score counted I would have had 7, and maybe have gotten in. It was unfair to BA holders because the max points you could get was 8.

So I reapplied the next year as a CCP student, you only need 12 credits to do so, and got the max points possible. I just graduated last week!

How often do they offer the AHT and do you have to write and essay? Also How much time do they give you when taking the test? for some reason i am very nervous.
