    I want days, with kids and church there is no way I could do both at night.

    Okay, just to clarify... are they going to give preference to Duval and Nassau students every semester and they are just starting that this summer? If so that's awesome for me. I live in Duval. I heard a lot of people from Clay apply to both FCCJ and SJRCC so maybe that will affect it significantly.

    I think they are going to be doing that from now on because there are A LOT of Clay students there. It sucks, and while it may be a factor for next semester, I have a feeling that a lot of students are going to be using other addresses. To me, it does not make since. I am a Clay student and some of the best students are in Clay. SJRCC only lets in a small amount and does not offer the same amount of hospital exposure. But I guess it is whatever our new nursing director wants. And she is doing a good job in turning the program around so I guess I cannot complain. =)

    As you know they take less students each semester, like fall they accept 168, spring 144 and summer 96. For the spring term it said they would only consider students from Duval, Nassau and Baker, I didn't apply for fall so I don't know if they took other counties. What I am trying to get at is that when they accept less students, they only take certain counties. I have heard that some people are trying to change their address with the college.

    The new rule is in affect starting this summer, as I know someone who is a clay resident who got in for spring, and she was near the cut off in points. Oh well, all of my friends have gotten in already or live in Jacksonville so I really don't have anything to worry about. =) good luck on getting in!

    Thanks for the info. I take the NAT tomorrow... I'm so nervous! :chuckle It's my first time taking it. At least I will have some idea of about how many points I will have for that.

    Some girl also told me they aren't allowing the up to 20 points for medical experience. Is that true?? I don't care because I don't have any but she has been a CNA for a while and seemed really peeved that they weren't counting that anymore. She sounded pretty certain but that was the first I ever heard about it. But like I said if they are, that just makes it easier for me lol.

    i actually have 185.8 not that it will make any difference but i seen what i put and was like wait i have .8 not .5!~ i know so silly! it is not going to matter in the bigger picture of things i am sure.. i am trying to get in for summer. i did not think the nat was hard at all it is timed and that was the biggest problem i had! i took it twice and the first time i was so dumb i did not look at the book because i talked to others who told me that i did not need to. the second time around i knew what to expect so it was a little better for me. the biggest advice i can give you that really helped me alot is if you do not know one of the questions write the number down on the extra paper you are given and move on!~ and if you are running out of time go back and guess or if you don't know it when you come to it and you know you are not going to know it guess. i had a friend also suggest that if i ran out of time towards the end guess all c's instead of guessing all different letters. i am not sure if it helped i unlike my really really good friend ran out of time both times i took it on the first section. take a deep breath and go in there with confidence and understand that you have come this far and you can and will do well! i will be thinking about you! good luck!~

    I spoke to Ms James yesterday. When I mentioned that my DD would be applying when she gets discharged and that the extra 20 pts would really boost it for her....she stated that my DD needed to make sure not to misplace her DD-214.....what that implies to me is that they are still giving the extra 20 pts for those already in medical fields. (DD is a combat medic)

    Also, since I am looking at getting into the evenings/weekends program, I asked her what the cutoff for that was this semester. She said 196. (Obviously, with only 24 slots, the points would be higher.) It looks like I am pretty safe with 219.

    She also told me that you do not need your BLS/CPR card when you apply, just by the time you take your physical. I am scheduled for a class tomorrow and I was waiting before applying.

    Just thought I would share.

    I guess I'm a bit confused, as she can not tell you the cut off points if all the apps are not in yet, I know some people are still applying...

    Ooops! Sorry that was confusing. "This" semester is Spring. That means NS has already started. NEXT semester is Summer....and that is the one *we* are applying for. Make sense?
