    Anyone Accepted into CCBC's Nursing Program???

    First welcome and it will be a great journey. I've just completed my first semester of the Essex evening and weekend RN program. I absolutely love it. It's very challenging but you'll learn so much. I love the clinicals and actually working with the patients. To answer some of your questions. The only classes they look at is English, Intro to Psych, human growth and development, sociology, a math and the science classes. I entered the program with an A in everything except English which I had a B. My math class was statistics. I also came in with a business bachelors. I had a 76 on my teas which was proficient. I used the teas study guide for that and did two practice exams on the ati website. My advice to you is to try and get an A in everything. I know people who have gotten in with a 3.0 with a C in A&P I and and B in A&P II but it's very competitive. So of course the higher the GPA the better. And they especially look at the science classes. It also depends on which program you decide to do. The day program at Essex and Catonsville has more openings at about 60 people per class. The evening weekend program is about 40 students and the online is about 20. I would only recommend the LPN program as a last resort. Lastly I would just say enjoy the ride. Your pre reqs will fly by and try and learn as much in A&P I and II because you'll use it a lot in nursing school. Good luck and I hope this helps.

    I think you look solid for the program. I definitely know that people have gotten into the program with lower grades. Although the evening program is difficult to get into. They accept like 40-47 people. I started back in August. It's been a challenge but definitely a solid program. I really like it so far. Had my first patient last weekend and it was great. Good luck and keep up the good grades and you shouldn't have a program. And so far our teas looks very good.

    I really liked HCC and the teachers there were absolutely amazing and it's a solid program. Here are the reason why I chose CCBC. I took the evenings and weekends and they have a lab on Wednesday that starts I 4:00pm. I work full time and I would have had a really hard time making it there on time. That was the main reason. Second, because I work full time I liked that CCBC wasn't accelerated. HCC is an intense program and I wanted to do the best I could and learn the most. I was told by faculty that not to many people survived the program who worked full time. The last reason is because I began my journey at CCBC and I have several friends that will be in my nursing class, especially a close one which kind of sealed the deal. Are you leaning one way or the other?

    Hey, I was accepted to HCC and CCBC. They both are very competitive programs. I applied for the evening weekend program. At HCC they accept 20 students and CCBC 40. You can go to HCC Website and they give you the point system they go by. I believe it's based off 30 points. You want somewhere around 22. And CCBC average GPA is a 3.4 but I know people that got in with a 3.0 and both pretty much want a proficient on teas. An advanced will give you an edge. I'll be starting the CCBC program in August!!! But I would add that HCC is an 18 month program and it's a very good solid program and the professors are amazing.

    It's nice to meet you. My name is Greg. And I read your other post and don't feel bad because I'm just as nervous. Like you I've been working hard at this and I tend to be a nervous wreck. I need to learn some breathing techniques. Lol but I think we'll be great!!!! I'm just gonna try and enjoy my summer and the free time.
