Wallace State Nursing Class of 2013 (starting in Spring 2012)
- 0Oct 8, '11 by NikkiMacI received my acceptance letter in the mail today. Stoked is an understatement more like shocked actually because I only had 161 points accumulated with my grades and TEAS score. I had it in my head since applying that I wouldn't get in considering the cut off for Spring 11' was 165 points. Nonetheless, I am in and very happy! I wasn't expecting the letter until the end of this month because that's when they said they would send them out. I had previously applied to the Dental Hygiene program for Fall 2011 but was #46 and they only take 30 students. Dental Hygiene has always been my first choice with Nursing second, now I am stuck between accepting the Nursing offer or waiting another year to go back to Dental Hygiene which I know I would get in this time around because I have good ACT score and I finished all the pre reqs (I was missing two when I applied the first time)
Anyone else out there that is starting the Nursing program at Wallace State Hanceville in the Spring of 2012?
- 1Oct 9, '11 by cpl_dvldogNursing school is such an intense program I don't recommend anybody even attempt it unless they are 100% sure that is exactly what they want to do. It will consume your life for the next 5 semesters. One question to ask yourself is, depending on your age, do you want to do nursing for the next 30+ years? If the answer is no then choose what you do want to do. No need it taking a nursing seat away from someone that does.
- 0Oct 9, '11 by NikkiMacI am 33, started college in 2004, went for a year and stopped. Started back in October of 2010, finished all the pre reqs for most any medical program. When I started school in 04 I wanted to be a Nurse, I have wanted to be a Nurse my whole life up until a conversation with my Grandmother who is a retired Dental Hygienist of 50 years. The thing that I like about Dental Hygiene is the fact that you can work part-time if you want to. Most DH's work for several different practices a couple of days per week to get a full week. Is the same true for an RN? I have a couple of weeks before I have to commit to the Nursing program and I definitely want to give another student a chance if I can't make a concrete decision. Thank you for your input
- 0May 27, '12 by HM-8404Did you decide to go into nursing? I just got my acceptance letter for this Fall and was wondering what the first semester class schedule is like. Is it 4 days a week, how do the instructors seem to be, etc?
I have been accepted into two totally different programs, WSCC ADN and UAB RT programs. I am waiting for one more letter before I make my final decision on where I will go.
Any info you can give me about the program at WSCC would be much appreciated.
