Has anyone seen this addendum on the nursing curriculum packet page 9 for the 2017-2018 school year? I'm really, really hoping they're not adding any more prerequisites because I'm chomping at the... Read More

    Has everyone taken Micro?

    @xoCrash, at least you have something to look forward to either way!

    @Laur318, i'm doing the same thing! Sometimes even multiple times a day... we have less than a month! Most people found out by April 5th last year!!

    @esrun326, my school of first choice is CCC, i wonder the same thing!

    I took micro (and a lot of my other courses) while living in FL. I actually have nothing but nursing classes to take.. all pre and co read are done. Just the transition summer course and two semesters of nursing if I get in at Naugatuck.

    @FutureRN you should be just fine! As long as your teacher is decent and cares about you as a student you will be able to get a B or an A. It's a lot of memorization, just like A+P.

    So over the weekend I was sent a letter that was ineligible for the nursing program for fall and I did not have all the requirements.. OMG..After crying my eyes out I read he email fully and realized, The requirement in question was made in error and I just have to show proof. The letter said I did not sent my official transcripts from another college, Which I DID!! and i forward the email of confirmation. The told me to send an e-transcript and everything should be fine....I have never been so stressed in my life!!!!

    @xoCrash, Awesome! that way you can just focus on the nursing classes/labs/clinicals, that's ideal!

    @esrun326, thank you!! I certainly hope so I'm just hoping I'll be able to get into a micro class that will work with the nursing schedule!

    @Tesha860, OH I AM SO HAPPY YOU LOOKED AT IT AGAIN!! Thank goodness you did! I would have reacted the exact same way- deep breaths now

    Guys the real count down is starting to begin! 2-3 more weeks until we find out.
    I hear Univerisity of Bridgeport applicants have already found out. (A couple of my classmates in my micro class have already gotten their decisions)
    I am getting so nervous each day that passes.

    Did those UB applicants get in? Waitlist? Denied? I did not get anything yet.

    2 were accepted and one was denied because her TEAS score was a 60 and the other is still waiting for a decision. The funny thing about it is, one of the girls that were accepted had a lower GPA than the girl that wasn't accepted but happened to score higher on her TEAS. I guess UB looks at TEAS scores more than GPA.

    @FutureRN_2019 I certainly hope that is true...I only have a 3.3 nursing GPA but my TEAS score was an 86.7 so I'm hoping that being a male/having a good TEAS result will get me accepted if my GPA is looked down upon.
  10. by   Future_Rn2019
    If your applying to UB have faith! The girl that didn't get accepted had a GPA of 3.7 with a 60 on her TEAS and the other girl that was accepted had around a 3.4-3.5 with a 68 on her TEAS!
    You never know what each school is looking at more.
    Good luck!

    Not sure if registration has started for classes. Been watching to see when they release courses for next Fall. Looks like they did says Nursing 101 has room for 125 students next Fall.

    Taking Micro and AP2 now. I don't find Micro to be challenging. A few issues I had was I haven't used a scope in 8 years and took a few weeks of re learning how to use a scope. The scope is important ha. Some days we are doing more than 3 labs, not often, that is intense your just fried by the end.

    Lectures are straight through. Did okay think a B on the first one. Will admit I failed the 2nd test. The 2nd test was a lot of repetitive knowledge from other classes. I will admit I struggle, it's a learning curve, with 4 chapters then a test. That week I had micro and ap exam. AP2 exam was postponed due to snow. Just studying 8 to 10 chapters of various information with micro and AP2 was tough.

    Mostly it's straightforward. With my class about 6 to 8 weeks of Micro intro. Now starting to get into areas where can relate to real world like viruses.

    Really is about time management and deep breathing, ha.

    I'm trying to convince myself that at this point no news is good news.. right? Has anyone else heard about any people hearing that they didn't get in or is it just people that didn't meet the minimum requirements?
