    Thanks guys. I think that if I do get in then Im going to try to talk with a guidance counselor to discuss my options. Hopefully it all works out because Im dying to finish school already.

    Does anyone know how the 2nd choice school works. I applied to gateway but there are only 45 seats and capital was my 2nd and they have 162 seats I am so mad at myself for applying to gateway as my number one. If I dont get in I am going to be sooo mad!! Also, I hope working at Yale helps... I wonder why they ask you where you work unless it is to help me!! GOOD LUCK EVERYONE! Also, I work with a guy who was number 17 on the waitlist and got in so dont give up everyone it can happen they called him at 11am the day of classes and said be here by 2!

    Hi everyone, this is my first time posting here. I have applied to the program as well, and can't wait to hear if I got in. I would like to wish everyone good luck! I have applied to TRCC & CCC 2nd. The two things I'm worried about most is taking micro while in the program and figuring out how to make enough money to get through school when I leave my full time job. I was wondering if anyone here knows any more detail about TRCC schedule besides the lecture class on Monday's? Im trying to figure out if I should try to keep my job now or find something part time. Thanks for any insight any can provide.

    I'm in Micro right now as well and I have to say that it actually isn't as bad as I expected it be. Compared to A&P I & II - it's a breeze. Although I have to admit that my Gen Bio instructor taught with an intense focus on aspects of Microbiology, so a lot of Micro is review with a couple of extra details (thank you Gen Bio instructor!). I have heard that it's generally considered a tough course to do while in the nursing program.. especially if you're also working. I'm not sure if Micro is offered during the summer, but if it is, you may want to consider taking it then.

    Livetolearn - If it all possible, I'd try to take it in the summertime. Not only can it be intense, but if you don't take it by the first semester, you can't move forward in the nursing program. I don't think it'd be impossible to take while in the nursing program, but I personally would rather not take it. However, just like anything else, as long as you put time into it, you'll be fine.
    I too, am leaving a secure, decently paying full-time job. Some nights, I toss and turn wondering how Im going to make ends meet with part-time work (if i get in). Other times, I have full faith that it will work out. If this is something you truly want to do, it will turn out alright. It has to. It's not going to be easy, but it will be ok.

    I have definitely heard that Micro is intense during the programs because you're also taking your core nursing class and clinicals/lab. I'm sure it's doable, otherwise it'd be a requirement for admission. It is the type of class that is as tough as the professor makes it (like most classes). Find out some information on the professors before you sign up and make sure that they present the information in a clear way and previous students did well because of the teaching style. Good luck!! One week!!!

    Hello everyone, I'm in 102 at Gateway. We started this semester with 3 pregnant students they are working with all of them. There are 96 spots 48 fall, 48 spring. They ask you where you work because most likely you will not have 101 clinicals where you work. We took a few students off the wait list but not many, they told us 120 did not get in. We are in the new campus in September, Yale donated $500,000 for our program and they are naming the lab area the YNHH nursing suite. It's going to be nice! I wouldn't take micro and nursing together. I think for the most part your second choice will never be an option.

    How do you like it, is it as hard as they make it seem "impossible" basically. I applied to GCC as my first choice I'm wondering what you mean about the spring & fall though? You apply once a year than they can accept you to whichever semester they want fall or spring?

    Half start in the fall, the other half start in the spring. A&P and Micro were a walk in the park compared to nursing, 101 is a lot easier than 102.

    studentnursect - Great, thats awesome. A&P and Micro gave me nightmares. Oh well, I figured as much. Are clinicals alright? I was reading a post from the woman last year who said it's a dog eat world at clinicals. But, I figure if you're engaged, putting in the time and effort, and taking it seriously, it's got to be ok.

    And i'm sure they mean it, but do they REALLY mean it when they say to work part-time? I'm prepared to do so, and I'm going to plan on working 20-25 hours per week ( I currently work 60, probably why a&p and micro feel like they suck up all my time - I have none!) Do you think that amount is pushing it?
