    CTDon - I tried emailing mailing yesterday...I'll be calling today. I know I have time to register before orientation, but I want to make sure they haven't screwed up my paperwork like the whole transfer classes mess where they told me I wasn't eligible for the program haha. If I have time today before class, I can stop by again too....

    Called today... first they gave me a run around "Did you speak with a counselor", etc... The I get the "Oh, someone changed in but this little box needs to be clicked and apparently that must make a difference". Ya think? Now when I try to register, I get the Pre-req/test score error. I emailed the Nursing counselor and he should take care of it. I'm so close!!

    I'm having the SAME EXACT PROBLEM right now. I'm meeting with him tomorrow. Also, have you dropped of your health forms yet? I brought mine to the 8th floor, to a woman in an office. Jeez, I hope that was right. Oh the many things that can go wrong, yikes!

    @ Saramisu - Wow you've already dropped off your health form?! Did you get a flu shot already or did they tell you you could wait till the fall? I spoke with someone who said to have it done by October but I'm still worried since I've been given the wrong info so many times!

    Also, does anyone know if/when CPR classes will be held at CCC? I'm pretty sure that there were at least two held at CCC last summer.. I tired calling the number on the back of the acceptance letter but I had to leave a vm and haven't gotten a call back. I'll have to try again tomorrow..

    Oh, also FYI I had the exact same registration problems. The advisor (who shall not be named said it was because they didn't have a final grade on Micro.. even though it's not a prereq. Makes total sense. :icon_roll Anyway, once I emailed him that yes, indeed, I am passing and, no, there is no possible way that I will not pass.. he fixed it and I was FINALLY able to register. I thought that the whole 'I'm still in Micro' thing had been put to bed when we had met face to face three weeks ago and I told him that I was fairly certain that I could never go back to class and I would still pass.. but no. Had to follow up with a couple emails. Sigh.

    They told me I could wait until Sept for the flu shot. All my titers came back positive within a couple of days and I had a freak accident last year so coincidentally had been given the TdaP last year.
    Have you paid in full yet? I am in the process of straightening out my loans, and I've paid the student fees. I don't want to get kicked out forever if it takes an extra week to go through. Anyone have any clue? I know under normal circumstances, I had until about July to pay my tuition in full, so long as I paid the student fees.

    I registered! Yay! I think we have til July (first maybe) to pay for the semester. I was waiting for a grant to go through and it was just applied! Now I just have to pay the difference. They might give us info about CPR classes at orientation. I don't remember if the letter said when we needed to be certified by. I did mine already by going on American Red Cross' website and signing up for the class listed in the Infopacket and Nursing Handbook. Also, if you have loans you're waiting on, I would communicate with your loan company and financial aid. I know my loan company doesn't distrubute any loans until August.

    @saramisu - you were right to hand in the health form on the 8th floor. I spoke to registrar and the counselor the other week and they both said it needs to go to the nursing secretary.

    Does anyone know if I can just hand them a copy of my CPR Certification when I hand in my health form? I stopped by my old work's occ health to get a record of my Tetanus booster that they gave me in 2009. Now I'm just going to a local walk-in clinic that I've been to a few times (I don't have a PCP) and they said they can do all the titers, a physical, and the TB test. However they told me that there is no titer for Tetanus, they just need a record of the vaccine. I didn't realize this... is this right?

    CCC listed the books for NUR*101 finally. Doesn't look too bad, I though it'd be more expensive than that. I'm not sure about the recommended books by the bookstore though. I've heard that we'll have enough readings to keep us busy without supplemental study guides. Does anyone who is finishing their first year have an opinion on this?

    As far as CPR certification goes, you have until September 1st to get certified. I am also planning on handing in a copy of my card with my health form.

    @mssjez, I thought the books were going to be more outrageous than that as well...but then again, this semester is only one class. I'm sure as we move along there will be more opportunites to expand our personal libraries! I'm looking forward to hear what current/past CCC students say about the supplemental study guides.

    Personally for me going to NVCC for the past three years I've had a problem every fall for my loan. They always threaten me that they will cancel my classes if I don't pay or they loose all my info, or they just pretty much forget I exist. I've paid all my fees already and applied for my loan. Every year I end up going to financial aid and fighting with them. So my plan for this year is to go to financial aid asap and settle everything, they will contact your loan company to make sure they distribute your loan on time. To be extra safe, contact the loan company yourself and make sure they send it before the due date. It's such pain every year! I'm so nervous that they are gonna screw something up! :-(

    Can anyone explain the payment arrangement when you get federal aid?

    @ saramisu - yeah, I paid in full when I registered so I don't know how that works. I hope they aren't unreasonable about it, it seems like paying by July should be in plenty of time! Thanks for the confirmation on the flu shot in the fall thing - I was a little worried about that.
