    all you need to apply is:
    1. placement in math 118
    2. english 101 ready
    3. highschool biology and chemistry as long as they're not more than 10 years old (if they are older than 10 years old there are equivalent classes ccp accepts). check out the first of the 2 links i pasted at the bottom that will tell you everything you need to know to apply.
    i took the allied health test (aht). i don't think its fair to brand the test as easy or hard because those words are subjective and whats easy/hard to me might not be the same to you. i can tell you there is a basic reading, basic grammar, and a basic math section. i guess for whatever its worth i can give you my personal opinion which is i didn't think the aht was difficult, but it went by very fast because there is a rather short time limit. you must attend an information session in order to apply and get scheduled for the aht.
    the chances of you getting in depends on how may points you earn. the points system described in the second link below is exactly like the description in the application booklet you will receive once you attend an information session.

    Hello everyone,

    I applied for the Nursing program at CCP this past October. I took my AHT. I heard from other people who got into the program last year that acceptance letters are going out in February. Has anyone else applied? if so what is your overall score?

    I applied in October also. Took the AHT in December and scored a 19, so that means I should have 8 points. We won't hear till March because the last AHT is the first week in March. The waiting is driving me crazy!

    Yeah me too... I scored a 20 but because my gpa is a 3.37 I only have a 7 even with no w,d,or f's... which is crazy. I assume you had a 3.5 or above. If I only had one more point on the test I would have had an Last year acceptance letters went out as early as mid-february even though they told people March so I hope we hear before then. Did you apply to any other mursing programs?

    I think you have a good shot of getting in. I would imagine they accept 7's based on how they did on the test, and you scored pretty high. CCP was the only school I applied to since I don't have all the prereq's for the hospital schools yet. Last year there were a few people who posted getting a letter at the end of February, but I'm not sure if all the AHT's taken done by then. I hope you get in. I'm just going to try to relax about it, but it's hard

    Yeah my plan is to wait and see what happens with CCP this year and if I do not get in I will reapply next year but also apply to Aria, Abington, and Northeastern as well. I have been taking classes halftime for a year and a half now. I've been taking classes that are all part of the nursing program at CCP so that if I do get in I can still remain halftime. Do I got all of my english, math, cst, and sociology done. If I don't get in this year I'll probably take Chemistry 110 over the summer because that is pretty much the only prereq i do not have for the other programs because CCP does not require it for their nursing program. You will definitely get in this year unless some crazy amount of people scored a 9 which i doubt. Since you got the 8 I assume you will get a letter before me since I'm more in limbo so keep me posted.

    Hello all fellow ccp nurses! I am looking to apply and had some questions. I am transferring to ccp this fall, and only need A&P I and II, Micro, and the computer class plus the four nursing classes. My question being, how many nursing classes can I take per semester? Am I able to survive this schedule..

    AP I

    and once I have been (hopefully) been admitted to the program how many nursing courses are you able to take per semester?

    I would strongly suggest taking A&P 1 in the fall, A&P 2 in the spring and Micro in the summer, and take computers with any one of those classes. Don't double up on lab sciences. You really need to know your A&P so it's better to focus on one at a time because those classes are very, very hard. (I have a graduate degree and found A&P to be harder than any class I took in grad school). You can also take Micro in the summer between nursing 2 and 3, after you finish the first year of the nursing program. Lots of people do that; you don't need it in order to start the program. You can do the same with computers.

    You'll take Nursing 1 in the fall, Nursing 2 in the spring, Nursing 3 the following Fall and Nursing 4 that Spring. There's no other way to do it and trust me, it's enough. I wouldn't suggest taking ANY other classes with nursing. You're going to be reading 100 pages a night and being tested on 30 chapters at a time. It's doable, though, but I want to be honest with you so you know what to expect. Good luck
