    Ocean County College OCC Nursing Waiting List

    I'm sure the test won't take as long as they say no matter how long the new version is. I don't know why anyone would sit there until the ticket is done haha, that's funny. My SATs were only a 990 and I think you had to have a 1100 or better. I have all the pre-req's done and the only thing I have left is Microbiology which I am taking this semester. So I am *hoping* I get in for this Fall. Good luck on Monday!

    Ocean County College OCC Nursing Waiting List

    These are the new requirements for the TEAS test, they have it on the OCC website now, but I got it in a letter too: ATI, the company that offers the TEAS test, has moved to Version 5 of the test. Beginning January 2010, all students testing at OCC will be offered Version 5, and should look for study guides that reference this version. If you have already taken and passed a prior version of the TEAS test at OCC, you do not need to take the test again; the pass on the prior test still counts. To improve your chances of success on this test, take you general education courses first. The TEAS test consists of reading, math, science, and English. If you wish, take the review class. Students who fail the TEAS test the first time can retake after a mandatory waiting period of 6 weeks. Students who fail the TEAS test on the second attempt are required to complete the OCC TEAS review class offered through Continuing Education before attempting a third time. Students who fail the test on the third attempt cannot retest for two years. If you are applying for Spring 2011, your deadline to take and pass the TEAS is the prior June 30th. If you are applying for Fall 2011, your deadline to take and pass the TEAS is the prior December 31st. Applicants for Fall 2010 will follow the old requirements and will be directed to test in April if you are accepted. Not giving much time for it I guess! How long is the test? I heard it's close to 5 hours.

    They said in the letter I got yesterday that they changed the version they're using to Version 5, which apparently is the newest version of the test. I'm wondering how different it will be compared to the one you took. Hopefully not too bad. Is it kind of like the SATs? I took those. If I get accepted for this coming fall, I only have until April to take it. Hopefully I'll find out by the end of next month if I'm accepted. Thanks for all the advice!

    Thanks for the clarification. I'll definitely wait until I get my acceptance letter til I get my physical. I got a letter in the mail yesterday stating a bunch of changes they've made to the program. Seems like they modify it every semester. They said clinicals are available 7am-7pm Monday-Sunday and now they don't have specific evening and morning programs, just spring and fall and when you get accepted you determine which one you want since they offer both morning and evening classes now each semester. I would say that's definitely an improvement on the program. They changed the rules around about the TEAS test too. I am a little worried for that. How was it??

    Getting CPR Certified

    I hear that once I get my acceptance into the Ocean County College Nursing Program, I need to be CPR certified. I went on the American Heart Association website because I was told I could get certified through a class there, but there are 28 different courses to choose from. Does anyone know which is the correct class to take? Is it Heartsaver CPR or BLS for Healthcare Providers? Or is it something else? I want to make sure I do the correct one. Thanks!!

    "Full physical from dr. I got my letter around last week of Nov, and it had to be done by Oct 15th, anything older was not accepted." What do you mean by that? You got your acceptance letter into the Nursing Program in November and you couldn't have a physical any older than October 15th? Sorry the wording is just a little confusing for me. I just finished all my pre-req's for the program this past semester (Fall 2009) so I am hoping to get in for the Fall 2010 program. I haven't had a physical in years, should I get one now or wait until I see if I get accepted?? Great advice about the cost of getting in, I had no idea it was that much! Thanks for the heads up. I can't remember if I filled out a letter of intent when I registered for my Fall 2009 semester, and I know I didn't do one yet when I registered for Spring 2010, I have to go back and sign one. Will that make me lose my chance of getting in for Fall 2010? I just started at OCC last summer so I am not used to having to do that and the people in the office certainly don't remind you.
