I went New York for college then decided to go back to my home in Maryland for college. It mainly depends on closeness of curriculums. You could always ask the school you wish to transfer to if they can look at your transcript of courses you have already taken and see what transfers. Also you could take the nclex exam in your own state as well. At my old college in NY, we could take the nclex there or sign up to take it back in our home states that way we would be certified nurses in whatever state we wanted to be certified in. Maybe try talking to an advisor of both schools and see what the best bet would be.
Sometimes it is best to stay where you are to get certified, then see what you need to do to have your certification changed to a different state.
For me, I can say most my nursing courses did not transfer, but the prerequisites did. Sometimes the course could transfer, but because of clinical it would not transfer over. Clinicals, for some reason, do not transfer well because it hard to judge them.
I would say to see if you could cancel a few extracurriculars out from your life for a while to get more study time. Get the time you need down for more studying, then add in extracurricular activities (such as night out w/friends) when you know you can spare time or need a mental health day. Also see if any type of testing accommodations can be made available to you. Ex: I have testing anxiety and got the option to test in a separate room and have time and a half on tests at my previous college. My scores went from low 50s and 60s to 75%or higher. Also don't be afraid to form study groups, see a tutor for assistance if possible to make sure you have everything down and even meet regularly with instructors to see if they offer extra help as in study techniques and clearing up questions.
It depends. I transfered my junior year as well. It really depends on how well the curriculums for both schools classes match up. If there is even the slightest difference, most times the credits for classes won't be accepted.
Hello everyone. My name is Emily.
(I'm new to the site here and not sure how to use it completely yet.)
I got into CCBC Essex day program for the fall of 2017 and was wondering who else got in as well. Also, I would like to start a study group with anyone who wants to join me, so we can support eachother and survive nursing school together lol. I feel it is better to go in to nursing school knowing people around you to help you with getting off to a good start. It even helps take some of the nervousness and jitters away knowing someone is there to help.
Reply to say if you got into Essex day nursing program and if you would want to possibly be in a study group with me.
Hi. My name is Emily. I was wondering if you can give some words of advice and wisdom about ccbc nursing and possibly ways to succeed in the program. I have the first semester jitters already.
Hello. I applied to ccbc essex nursing days for fall 2017 and got in. Did you get in? If you did, do you possibly want to study and whatnot with me when the semester starts? I may not be doing the ATB program, but we will share some classes and it's better to have a study group and have people you know and can rely on.
Hope you all are having a good summer. Does anyone have any suggestions on comfortable shoes? (Especially for when we start clinicals) I've been browsing around but would love suggestions on any that you may personally tried/purchased. Thanks!
Nurse mates dove are very comfortable and I love them.
Did you get into essex days? I applied and got into essex fall 2017-2018 this year. If you do the nursing program we can study together and whatnot if you wanted to.
