    @studentnurseCT.. How far along were the pregnant girls in your class. I just found out so I'm pretty nervous about their flexibility. I work in the hospital as a CNA so its going to be pretty easy knowing what my body can and cant do. Also this is not my first pregnancy. I'm not sure if I can do the first semester since I think I'm due November 21. Im only 6 six weeks I think so far.

    @yrienay ... im 5 1/2 months preg w my first and almost done w my first year of nursing at NVCC. Im due the end of july, but i would say if you have the help and support to just do it. Where did you apply too? If you get acceptepted you should talk with your OBGYN and see if he will induce you or have a scheduled c-section when you have a break. IF youre due around thanksgiving you should have a break around that time and only about a week or 2 left of clinicals and then your final. Then youll have about 5 weeks off until you start your spring semester. It goes by very fast, i remember when i was stalking allnurses.com waiting to hear if anyone had received acceptance letters this time last year and i cant believe i only have about 6 weeks left and im halfway done! We started with about 125 and we were down to about 90 people by the time last semester ended. You have to make nursing school your #1 priority or you will set yourself up for failure. Goodluck to all that applied and enjoy the summer while you can!! lol

    Thanks nvccstudentnurse. I applied to Capital 1st and NVCC 2nd. Yea I have plenty of support and thats not really what im worried about. Just the timing and the amount of class Ill miss. My daughter was natural with no epideral and within a couple hours I was feeling fine and didnt need to take any medication at all so hopefully it goes that good this time around. I just wish it happens on a friday.. lol.

    @nvccstudentnurse, can you remember around what date the first semester ended? My sister in law is getting married Dec 22 in Jamaica and we need to be there 2 days in advance. Sorry a little off topic

    Hi I'm new here! I was reading all of your posts and am very nervous too! I applied to NVCC as my first choice and unfortunately, I had a problem with my transcript from my other school. I know the school received it 2 years ago, but for some reason they couldn't find it. So I received the "ineligible" letter and went back to the school with the original receipt (the deadline for reviewing was March 26th). the lady accepted it and said that I was all set. Now, I read that some other students had the same issues...do you guys think that they really put us on the eligible list or that they don't consider us? I'm so nervous that I can't even type right now anyways...I'm very nervous about that! They did update my file online a day before it went offline. I wish everyone good luck and hope you get in! I appreciate any answers thanks!

    allforthekids- i've been at 3 different community colleges over the past three years, and never once have any of our classes gone past the 16th. I think you could probably check the academic calender for this year. I'd ASSUME that clinical would coincide with the regular semester, but i'm not well qualified enough to know that. ps-where in jamaica? just got married last year and went for my honeymoon

    nursewannabe - if they updated your files, you should be all set. mine was fine, and everything listed as "met", although I had a slight roadbump because i was just married, and changed names halfway through the process. in any case, you'll know soon enough, but you should be good!

    @saramisu
    I sent you a reply, not sure if you got it. but I was saying thank you so much! it feels like a relieve now! I was just wondering how the ranking worked...I read on last year's thread that all the papers of the accepted students were dated back to the 28th of March, even though they received the letters 2 weeks later...So I'm just worried...I handed in my transcript on march 26th (monday), and it went offline that following thursday/friday. I would like to know what day they did the ranking/lottery, but I don't think we will find that out
    did you apply for this fall? at what school?

    I applied to ccc. I think they spend a huge chunk of time ranking everyone, then send inelegibility letters, and add in those who in fact Did have the proper documentation in. Although they make mistakes, I'd bet most people who are ineligible are so because they really did forget something. Anyway, where did you apply??

    I applied to NVCC. well look, I applied 2 years ago at NVCC. I brought them my transcript in an envelope to school on the 16th of Jan. 2010. and guess what, they had a paper with the stamp on it, but not the official transcript! So it's not that I forgot to do it, the school just never told me! I never received a folllup-up email in january that something was missing. plus the red sentence online "that the NGPA will be evaluated after Febr 1st" made me believe that we won't know the GPA until some time in february and since they didn't sent me an email in January, I assumed everything is fine...until I got that ineligible letter which really made me mad! but the lady was very nice about it, bc they did have the paper saying that the transcript was in. IDK what the heck happened to my transcript, but whatever...as long as they put me on the eligible list I'm happy. I'm so worried that they didn't though...since the letter came from the State of CT....we shall see next week! yea I would really like to know how the perform the ranking haha with 350 applications lol

    Thanks for all the suggestions, and encouragement. I'll have to see if I can make a summer class work only thing is it looks like most are full now and I would need to find one that won't really interfear with my work schedule. I just hope that if I get into the nursing school I get in to the spring session. If not I'll push through it in the fall, you do what you have to sometimes. I'm sure I'll make it. This has been a long week so far that's for sure!

    I know I'm a little ahead of myself here but on mycommnet the clinicals are listed as Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday 7-11. I assume this is because your clinicals could be assigned on any of those days on either 7-3 or 3-11.. but the clinicals are only two days out of the three possible right?
