Hi All,

I'm new to the forum:nuke: but, i did a search before i posted this and i wanted to get a little feed back from students attending the WCCCD program and/or the HFCC program. I am currently taking my pre-req for the WCCCD program, but i also work full time and i'm a single mom... I have a great job w/benefits but I have made the decision to make a career change and I can't work and be successful in the program so i will be quiting my job after my acceptance into the nursing program.... (that's at least a year from now so i have a lot of time to prepare)... I have heard some great things about the WCCCD program and also so some not great things such as them not being apart of the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission. (Does this matter on the larger scale of things?)

I have a good friend who attended the HFCC program and she speaks highly of it and the things she learned there along with there teaching styles. I am trying to make a decision on which program i want to attend for nursing and I need to do it fast as I need to have all my classes takin care of if i plan on applying to the WCCCD program in the fall of 08 or getting on HFCC waiting list.

So i just have a couple of questions in regards to the different programs such as:

1) Does anyone know the passing scores for the NCLEX from students at either school on the first time around.

2)What is the style of teaching at the different schools

3)What is the percentage of graduates from the program.

4)How is the overall feel for the WCCCD or HFCC program from your point of view.

I just wanted to get some students point of view before i made this very big decision that's gonna affect me and my daughters lives... I know school is mostly based on what you take out of it but i just wanted a little feedbcak from people who are attending or have attended the program. I also plan on going to both schools and pulling up the test score info. But nothing is like actually talking to a student pushing there way to the top.

Hi - I don't have any answers to your questions specifically, but I thought if you might post this in the Michigan forum you may get more responses.

I took one of my pre reqs at HFCC, but am on the wait list for Schoolcraft.

I probably wont be much help, be I have take classes at WCCC and HFCC, overall HFCC seems to leave be much more organized. I start at HFCC this august (yeah me.) I was on the wait list for a year- I hearit is a little longer now. WCCC is setup like a ranking/raffle. HFCC has less pre-reqs, no micro, nutrition, pathophysiology. I would try to get on HFCC waitlist, but still stayloron track at WCCC- especially if you like it there. Both schools has its ups and downs. Best of luck. If you have any more questions pm me.
