Merritt College Fall 2012 - page 2
I have been accepted to Merritt College ADN for fall 2012. Any others that have been accepted as well?... Read More
May 21, '12 by cabbitI have also been accepted to the Fall 2012 ADN program at Merritt College. Like the rest of you, I am also a little put off by the negative comments on some of the forums here.
Chris SN: You rock! Thank you so much for listing the chapters that are covered in Fundamentals of Nursing. I will study them over the summer.
Everybody else: Study groups are probably the way to go for the first 9 weeks (besides individual study). I look forward to meeting you all at orientation soon!
May 21, '12 by cabbitHi, I was also accepted to Merritt College ADN program for Fall 2012. Would love to put together a study group! I live in Berkeley, by the way. Let me know if you're interested!
May 22, '12 by ThatGuy.I work all weekend (sat 6am - sun 4pm), but I'm definitely willing to join a study group.
Since we most likely won't be able to depend on the instructors for help/support It'll be great if we could all meet up at least once a week and go over what we've studied and the material we're having trouble with.
May 22, '12 by Epiphany2000Hello fellow admits,
I've also been accepted into the program for the fall. Like others, I'm wary of the negative comments. I'm going to make another trip to the campus, talk to some key people, and read everything that I can about the program, the professors, and so forth. In all likelihood, I'll accept the offer. The alternative would be to re-apply to lottery based schools for spring/fall, 2013. I am also on the wait list at Napa Valley College, Cabrillo College, and Santa Barbara City College (with probably at least another year on each list).
I'm all for getting a head start by getting a study group going. We're all going to need as much support as we can get, most of which will have to come from ourselves and our fellow students.
Congratulations to all the admits. In 2 years from now, we'll be getting pinned !
May 22, '12 by sacfall12I also got accepted into Merritt this Fall. I'm from San Jose. Is anyone want to carpool and join a study group?
May 22, '12 by uni1602Hey all,
I also got the acceptance letter for the fall. I live in Alameda ( seems like there are a few others 20 miles around me; San Leandro, Richmond, Berkeley)
Let's wait until after orientation, when we have a better idea (or not) of what is going to happen =)
Anybody else's freaking out?!
May 22, '12 by jon510hello i also got accepted to merritt this fall. im from richmond aswell i have a question. the classes for the first semster are drug dosage and fundementals of nursing? i already took drug dosage class at contra costa college. will i have to retake it or is testing out of it the only way? oh and id like to join the study group. see you guys at the orientation!
May 22, '12 by DisneyDreamerI'm looking forward to meeting all of you at orientation and getting a study group together. I also took drug dosage calculations already. I'm hoping to test out if they don't count it towards the program.
May 22, '12 by cabbitStudy group people:
Anyone want me to start a Facebook page for a study group?
It might be easier to keep track of messages to each other with a group page. If yes, just reply to this and I'll post the exact name of the group page on Facebook (and make it open to anyone who wants to join). Soundie goodie?
May 22, '12 by cabbitI'm also freaking out a little, but trying to contain it. I just ordered 4 books from Amazon to study over the summer:
(1) Fundamentals of Nursing by Potter, et al (I bought old edition for 9 bucks).
(2) Fundamentals of Nursing by Taylor (same title as #1, but written more clearly, I hear).
(3) Dosage calculations book
(4) NCLEX practice exam book (since our tests are supposed to be in NCLEX format, which I'm unfamiliar with).
Those might be some good materials to look into if you are worried about the first 9 weeks of this program.
