North shore C.C


Has anyone attended North shore community college? How did you like it? I am looking into the LPN or RN program and was wondering what kind of GPA or prerequisites others had that got accepted. And also where you clinicals are?

thank you.

Hi I went to NSCC graduated with an associates RN in 2006, I liked the school alot, most of the instructors were great. We did our rotations at union, salem, beverly. Psych i did at tewksbury state. My suggestion is to do all the non nursing classes prior to starting the program , all your a&p's microbiology etc. Its almost impossible to do it all without doing that. Another suggestion, I know u dont know what this is yet, but when taking a test, and u cant decide between two answers, always apply the nursing process or maslows heirachy of needs to it, it usually helps. Anyway good luck. Pam

I've taken all my prerequisites at NSCC. Some teachers are better than others, but you sure can't beat the price!

i have a bs in sociology and want to become a cnm.

i first need my rn--and i have applied to nscc for fall 2012

what was the course load like in the first semester--in particular the schedule? i have 2 young children and am trying to plan for daycare for fall 2012.

i have already taken composition 1&2/ psychology/chemistry/sociology/microbiology.

does that mean i take less credits the 1st semester?

what was your experience like the first year? what were the hours you spent in clinicals/lectures?

thank you so much for any info!
