I am currently a pre-nursing student at APSU and I will be able to apply to nursing programs in the Spring of 2015. I was just wondering if anyone has been through the NSCC program? If so, how was it? I am just keeping my options open in case APSU does not work out.

I have seen one stand out negative review from someone in the first nursing class that matriculated at NSCC. I am currently enrolled at NSCC and have two part-time semesters of pre-reqs to go with the intent of applying for the Fall '15 class. The thing to keep in mind with NSCC is that it is still a small program that only matriculates 50 students per year once per year (Fall), so if you miss out and want to continue applying to NSCC, it is a 12 month turn-around. Most of the other schools in Nashville have an intake twice annually. In the two semesters I have been at NSCC I have liked the school much more than I expected I would as an adult learner.

I begin the nursing program in just a few short weeks at nscc and could not be more excited! It is a smaller class than many programs but I don't consider that a bad thing. It gives you a close group with lots of support! The instructors I have met so far are very kind and seem to care much more about the students as individuals rather than just pushing classes through. I have a family member that has already completed the nursing program at nscc and LOVED it! She is now a mom & baby nurse at one of our local hospitals and is doing very well. Whatever program you choose good luck!

I advise to stay away from NSCC. There are other great nursing schools....dont waste money or time in a nursing school system that does not listen to the concerns and needs of their students. They are not professionally prepared nor are sensitive to student issues and griefs. Please do your research. Contact me if you need to know more.

I do not know anything about NSCC but I graduated form APSU's program in Fall. It was a fantastic program in my opinion. Do everything you can to be selected, because it doesn't just produce nurses, it makes competent, well qualified nurses that are ready to start working! Every program has good and bad, APSU is no exception. However, from my graduating class I believe we have our 100% pass rate for NCLEX back, which is fantastic. If you can make it through the program, you're golden. Any questions, feel free to ask.

I am currently in the NSCC program and I love it! The instructors really want you to do well and will go out of their way to help, if you ask for it. They want you to be a great nurse, not just a good nursing student. A big part of nursing school is being aware of your weaknesses and knowing when to ask for help. It's a hard program, but I think it's great.

@Optimis Can you tell me a little more about the program? Is it possible to do part-time or how many days per week are classes and clinicals?

The program is set up so that everyone takes the same classes together. It isn't like you can just take one class at a time. You are only ever taking 2-3 classes at a time and generally have either class or clinicals 3 days a week. There is no flexibility in the schedule. A lot of people had part time jobs, but it is diffficult. No one in my class had a full time job.

May I ask a few questions about the NSCC nursing program process of being accepted? How was the interview process and do you know the likely hood of getting accepted if you got proficient on the TEAS, have a 3.1 gpa, and Ca or better in classes required to get in.

Thank you! I'm appyling for the fall semester of 2018
