  1. Tarrant County College Fall 2014 Nursing Program

    For us, there were spots for people with extenuating circumstances (i.e. weddings, babies) and then for those who had high GPAs. There were definitely more people who applied for the spots than got to take summer classes.

    Hey Alian18, I started at TCC in Spring 2012 and my experience at TCC has been great! Your clinical groups are never more than 10 students and my largest theory class was probably no greater than 30 students. For the most part, every teacher I've had...
