So, it's different from the initial ATI Teas exam?

Is this like the final each semester? Do we have to pay the $70 for the exams?

No you don't pay for each exam. They are test that determine if you can pass on to the next semester of the program. You take your classroom final then you take the ATI exam. You can get an A in your class & on your classroom final but if you don't pass the ATI exam then you have to repeat that class. They are different from the TEAS exam. The actual score doesn't matter it's pass or fail.

Oh, wow. I'm freaking out. I'm currently working full time. Given 1st hand, would you recommend me continue to work full/part time? Like how intense is 101 and 102?

I was wondering the same thing! I'm currently working full time as a PCT, so I'm a bit nervous about juggling both. I've heard mixed advice, with some working full time along with taking care of a family and others recommending not working at all if possible.

Does anyone know how scheduling works? For example: Can I take a morning lecture class and an evening lab class or do both classes have to be in the same section??

Don't freak out! My goal is to prepare you for what's to come not scare you. Yes you can still work full time & do well in your classes the first year. The first semester will be a breeze if you are working as a pct. The second year will be more difficult. A friend I work with dropped down to part time during his last year. As far as scheduling you have to pick a lab section that is attached to the lecture. The program isn't that bad if you guys stay on top of your readings, don't miss any classes/clinics & communicate with your classmates. It won't be easy but I don't think any nursing program is. Good luck all!

Any recommendations for which professor we should try to take? Any we should probably avoid?

Lecture: Nancy Kipnis, Imelda Duyungan, Roy Carrarini, Susan Neal

Lab: Maria Preston, Maricruz Diaz, Debray Wyatt, Carla Thomas, Ines Montero, Dawn Wilson

I will always recommend Kipnis and Neal, but idk how the others were because I haven't taken them. Also, the lab section when registering I believe is actually the clinical section. Because it will say lecture is 2 days a week, but one of those days is actually your lab. So your lecture is one day 3 hours long, the other day is your lab. So the part that says lab I believe is who you will be picking for clinical. I am not familiar with those choices for clinical so I can not recommend. But for lecture, Kipnis and Neal were phenomenal, ESPECIALLY Kipnis.

Also yes, at the end of each semester (except 1st semester) you have to take an ATI Exam which is pass/fail and you have two attempts to pass it. You do not have to pay extra for it, and it is not like the TEAS, it is all nursing related relative to which semester you are in.

Uniforms for RN program are at Working Class on 95th & Cicero (must buy there to get the CCC RN Program patch sewn on the tops) but the pants you can basically buy whatever navy blue scrub pants you want that match the scrub tops. Per uniform policy you are supposed to have white (leather) shoes. You need a stethoscope. Your ATI books will be supplied to you from the nursing department during the beginning of the semester. Those are not your only books for class, you will still need to buy books for class. If you are overdue for vaccinations, go get them NOW because they require titers and physical forms due before the start of school. Keep the questions coming lol. I wish I would have had someone to answer my questions when I was first starting.

Also, there is background check, and drug test they require but from a specific company. They will give you more info on that as well as required vaccination records and physical forms. Congratulations everyone and enjoy your summer now before this all starts.

Yes you can enroll in a payment plan! That's what I needed to do & it worked out well. You will set up the payment plan through your my.ccc.edu account.
