Anyone here attend or graduate Ocean County Community College? They boast that they graduate more nurses than any other community college in NJ.

I agree they do need to maintain a steady program and curriculum. I finally got in this January (night classes). I finished all my pre-reqs and had to wait only a year since then to get in. My first night of class there people were discussing how long it took them to get in and it was anywhere from 4 years to right in. The one girl who got right in after high school said she put in her letter of interest into the program when she was a junior in h.s..but Im still trying to figure out how that worked she got right in being that she's still missing pre-req classes that the school had specifically said needed to be taken before entering the program! But from my personal experience so far with the staff has been a breeze. No problems at all. I've been to the school nurse, and the faculty in the nursing building and admin. building. I guess I haven't caught them at a bad time but they've all been very nice and informative to me. I do hear things about people having bad experiences but I just never witnessed it..yet anyways. I must say the program is vigorous and you get tons of material thrown at you..example: 14 chapters on the 1st test only being day 8 of class. And double that for the 2nd test. In the meantime we have Practicums and ATI testing we need to get done. It's crazy! But people are doing it and people are always telling me they have one of the best programs in the state. (hard to believe) But Im always hearing it. Good luck in the future with whatever you chose to do!
