Here's my current situation:
I'm a student at HFCC. I'm not even on the waiting to get into the nursing program (which is 1 1/2 to 2 years), and the only classes I have left are A&P 2 (I'm in A&P 1 right now), and Chemistry. I failed my NET test by 5 points (their requirement is a score of 65), as well.
Well, this is my 4th year in college...I've changed my major a couple of times (First to Nursing then to Liberal Arts then to Elementary Education, and now I've decided that Nursing is the career I want to pursue). So, suffice to say, I'm not really wanting to wait at least another 4 years to finish my schooling. Tranferring to a University is sadly not an option due to finanical constraints.
I've been thinking about transferring to WCCC, and I have a few questions.
Here are the classes and grades that I have at HFCC, that I know will transfer over into the nursing program (pre-reqs and co-reqs)
English Comp I: C+
English Comp II: B+
Intro to Psychology: B+
Lifespan and Development: A
Intro to Biology: A
(Other than my A&P class, I'm also taking Medical Terminology
and Advanced First Aid this semester)
I plan on taking A&P2 this spring semester; and if it's offered, I'm going to take Microbio in the summer, in order to satisfy my pre-req's.
Now, considering I get A's in both A&P's and Microbio, and pass my NET test, I have a few questions:
1. If I apply for admission to WCCC this spring, get accepted, then transferred over, would I be able to start the Nursing program in the start of 2008? I know I wouldn't be able to apply for the fall 2007 term, since my pre-req's wouldn't be done by time I would need to apply.
2. If I can't take Microbio this summer, and if I take it in the Fall, will I be able to get into the program in the beginning of 2008, or would I have to wait until the next Fall Semester (2008) began?
3. Will I have to re-take Eng Comp. I? I know a C+ is passing, but my friend had to re-rake Microbio since she only had a C in it.
4. If I re-take the NET at HFCC, will it transfer over to WCCC, or do I have to take it WCCC?
Oh, and also...WCCC acceptance is competitve, right? Would they base my GPA off of ALL my classes from HFCC, or just the ones that apply towards the program? Annnndddd....would having some of the co-req's completed give me any sort of an advantage?
Okay, I'm done =) Sorry this is so long-winded. I know I need to talk to a conselour soon. Any help is GREATLY appreciated! =)
