Unofficial Official Nassau Community College Spring 2020

Posted

Hello all,

I did not see an active thread for Nassau Community College for Spring 2020 admissions, so I thought it would be a good idea to create one.

The application submissions begin September 13th and will close October 11th (unless it is changed). Nassau is now a BSN program that is partnered with SUNY Empire State University.

From what I was told by the Nursing Department, once we have completed the ADN portion, we are to take the NCLEX and pass before moving onto the next semester which is strictly SUNY ESU online classes. I was also told that there is an option to complete the BSN elsewhere once we have passed the NCLEX.

By the time the Spring semester comes around, I will only have Microbiology left to take. I hope I get into the Spring semester for nursing.

Thank You

Hi, good luck @FutureRNKT

I'm also applying for the spring 2020 and Im currently taking Patho and lifespan. I completed everything else already. I hate sharing stats cause I feel like im bragging but Im a competitive candidate at least in my eyes. lol. I went to the nursing Dept the other day they have the applications out already. Ok funny story but I thought the application was going to be a packet that asks you different things about yourself and why you want to pursue nursing at nassau and for your stats. anyways it turned out to be a one sided application with like 6 questions I think. When I saw it I laughed at myself because I made out to be worse in my head.

how many spots do they have for the day program? I turned in my application today and based on past posts I think I calculated my points correctly... I fall between 150 and 155 so (fingers crossed). it sucks that in the past noone has come back to say or talk about what the first few weeks is like... I want to minimize the shock that is to come if I get in.

Hey,

It is hard to say how many spots are available since some students get accepted into the first semester and some get accepted into the second semester. As for the number of slots available for the day NUR 101 for Spring 2020, there are 8 slots for each of the 8 sections (64 total) and 8 slots for the 4 evening sections (32 total). Keep in mind that this is only the slots available for the classes itself. Those that get accepted into the first semester will not count as part of the slots.

As for the points you have, I am sure you have enough points to make the list. I hope I do. Most of my classes are transfers from my previous degree and so I cannot see how many points I have for those. I am not even sure which classes satisfied the classes for the program. After this semester though, all I need is microbiology. My TEAs score was not the greatest (80%). If I do not make it for Spring 2020, I would be taking Microbiology in Spring and studying for the TEAs as I did not study this time around.

Just to clarify on the slots, the number I mentioned are the seats for the sections, not how many students will get accepted into the program if they apply.

Also, how would I calculate the points I have? Is it the number of credits the class is worth multiplied by the qualifying points? or the GPA?

Unfortunately, I did not make the cut. E-mails went out this morning. There were about 15 students ahead of me.

You do not need those to apply to the program, however, it does help your application as admission is based on a point system. The more classes you already have completed, the more points you have (grades also come into play as well). I would suggest you start taking classes as it would boost your application. ATI TEAS include material from A&P I and II so it would help to take those classes. There are also review books you can use to study as well.

EDIT:

Here are the classes you can take before starting the program:

ENG 101

MAT 102

PSY 203

PHI 110

AHS 131

PSY 216

AHS 132

AHS 202

ENG 102

BIO 131

Fall 2020 admission opens in February.

E-mails were sent out that morning. I called the office to see how many points I had and was told there were about 15 students in front of me. I still have classes in progress so after this semester, I would have more points for the next cycle.

Where do you find the point system??
