    Friend of mine asked the Dean of Nursing if letters went out & the answer was no, mailing mid- month. Apparently admin is clueless.

    @William87 I also received the same letter! I was so mad when I opened it!

    I currently work as a CNA in the hospital, for three years in december, but i have been a CNA for 6. I have always wanted to be a nurse, actually when I was little I wanted to be a Doctor, but as I got older i realized how much work it would be. So, my goal is to be a N-ICU Nurse. I obviously want to try it out first, if it is way to emotionally draining I will most likely work in Labor & Delivery. Definitley something with infants. I've worked with Geriatrics for the first three years of having my CNA and now I work on the Womens Surgery, Med/Surg, Orthopedic floor. SO i feel I have experienced enough to be confident about choosing to working with infants. I am very grateful for the experiences I have had, and feel it will make me an even better Nurse. The only thing I worry about is learning everything i need to know for working as an RN. Watching and being around them you realize just how much they actually know!

    I am currently a secretary /monitor tech at oak hill hospital. i used to work at brooksville regional and i just always liked the hospitals and got used to the routine of it all. I was a CNA before this. I want to be a PA or NP im not sure which one yet i just need to get started on the right track!! I really am banking on getting in this program as I just get married and me graduating means building our house on our 2 acreage wedding present! lol I hope to get accepted and make a lot of new friends as i have heard the ones you make in nursing school are sometimes the ones that stick! :-) good luck to all!

    Update on the letters. I always try to call and talk to as many different people I can , in order to piece together any information I can ,as to when the letters are coming out of if I got accepted or not. Originally I called the person who is responsible for sending out the letters and she told me they would be sent out the first week of October, because they committee already met at the time she told me this. She also mentioned that she was new to sending out the letters, I guess someone else did it last go around. I talked to someone else today who told me the one who is responsible for the letters won't send them out until she completes a few tasks for the people who have been accepted. I can only speculate what those things are. Maybe the packets that we receive once we accept the seat, the ones that tell us what we need to do, such as background check, shots etc. This could also mean she has to change our major so that we are able to sign up for nursing courses going forward. I once asked the person in charge of sending out the acceptance letters if we would notice our major changed( in wise) before the letters are sent out and she said that might not happen simultaneously. Anyway I now think the person I originally talked to, who said the letters would go out last Friday, maybe didn't realize how much work was involved before sending out the letters and overestimated the speed at which she could complete the task.

    Also, she hasn't answered the phone, so she is probably very busy.

    They supposedly send all acceptance and denial letters out together.

    I've got serious ants in my pants waiting to hear back. I had to go up to the financial aid office for paperwork and the girl there told me that last year they didn't hear back until November, I NEARLY DIED! A buddy of mine that already has been through the program said he got his in early to mid October! I'm dying to get started on the background check, CPR cert and shot/immunizations already!

    When I got my letter it was just that...a letter. Actually it was two pieces of paper one was a letter and the other was an acceptance form. You have to turn in the acceptance form and then they send you the packet of stuff. The form had to be turned in within 10 days or the seat would be forfeited

    Sounds like everyone has great reasons & motivation to become nurses.

    Hi guys! Im so nervous... I check my mail everyday and I never normally check my mail ever. I want this so bad. I would love to work in pediatrics or geriatrics one day but would be happy doing nursing in any area when I start. I know this is what im supposed do so now I just hope phcc agrees. Good luck everyone.

    I wonder if any of the 150 applicants this go around got a denial letter yet?

    How long does it take to stuff 150 letters, the committee already met and has chosen the people to go into the programs, that much they can tell you.

    Has anyone signed up for NCH0050 bls yet? You might as well get registered for a class sometime after mid October , the fee won't be due till the day of. And if you don't get in you can drop it before you have to pay.

    just think, when everyone one who gets an acceptance letter this go around for all the health programs, lpn, rn ,etc; they will be rushing to sign up for basic life support, you could miss the section you want and have to go on a day that is inconv. for you.

    by the way jazacmom said when she got her acceptance letter it was two pages, the letter and acceptance form.

    So if you are like me it will be comforting to know If i got in or not before I open the letter. So an acceptance letter will weigh about 13grams and a denial letter should way 9 grams, because its just one page.

    This way if you have a scale like me when you get the letter you can weigh your letter and know before you open it.

    I guess that sounds a little crazy.

    Its nice I could use the scale for something besides that yayo
