    Okay, campuses are FINALLY open! That means they're going to be updating accounts and such!!! So I checked my webadvisor account and they've added "Applicant/A.D.N. Basic" to my Progress Toward Degree Reqs! Surely this means they've opened my application up and entered me in the system!? Eeeeek! So exciting! Now if they'll just cash the application fee check! This is a bit torturous, but...at least I know they've got me entered in as a nursing applicant!!

    UPDATE! As soon as I posted I checked My Documents (checked earlier today and nothing was there). They've updated that they've got all of my paperwork from the application. YIPPEE!!!

    They have mine listed under docs, but as not received need ASAP. Kooky... how would they know to put them there without receiving my envelope when my app and transcripts and check were in the same envelope?
    Let's hurry up and wait, shall we? lol.

    Oh, geez! Well, at least you know they've got your stuff too! They're just being a little wonky with it, lol. I'm stalking my email accounts and webadvisor...this is pathetic! I've got to start swamping myself in these spring classes to keep my mind off of it! Lol.

    I'm getting so excited! Now the communication has actually started and I don't feel so unimportant, lol. Hope you all get some good news soon too!

    I got that too, and since my docs are still waiting I started to reply then saw the "do not reply to this message". Ugh! But, since it said they'd update as they review, I guess that means I need to be patient!

    At least they let you know they've received everything. Some other person probably has to manually go through and update that other list. Patience during this process seems to be very difficult, for me at least!

    I just checked in and all my docs are received and my "progress toward degree reqs" has been updated to show adn!! This is one happy girl!

    YAY!!! See? It's the little things that make us so happy now, lol.

    Just received my email this morning that they got everything and checked my documents and everything has been checked as received!! Yay! Now time to wait until March for the acceptance letters to role out. This board is really lacking people. Maybe not as many people are applying to nursing this semester? Better for us.

    As for campus and time, I am also going for SS days. I love the campus, the parking there and the easy drive. I would hate to have to drive into Dale Mabry every day!

    Hope everyone had a safe and happy new year!

    I applied for the transition program at HCC on December 27th and some of my documents are still not processed. I received the system generated email as well. Oh well now the waiting continues.

    I forgot to submit a copy of my CPR with my application does anyone think that will be a problem with my application?
  12. by   k.2012
    Sharynhopeful, which transition program did you apply to? LPN to ADN or paramedic to ADN? I'm applying to the basic ADN program so I'm not 100% sure about the transition but this is what the application states under the transition option for LPN to ADN:

    NOTE: The following must be submitted with this application
    Provide a copy of a valid Florida LPN license.
    1. Produce evidence of having completed CPR: Basic Life Support for the Professional Rescuer course from an agency that provides a two (2) year certification such as the American Heart Association BCLS-C course of the American Heart Association BPCLS course.
    2. Applicants seeking experiential credit must provide proof of 6 months full-time employment during the last three years as a licensed practical nurse.
    3. Applicants seeking articulated credit and waiver from work experience listed above must have graduated from a Practical Nurse Program in Florida, having completed the Practical Nurse Program within five (5) years of starting the Registered Nurse Program, and provide an official transcript from the Florida Practical Nurse Program at the time of application.

    If you're doing the paramedic to ADN, then these are the 'extras' that you are to submit with the application:

    NOTE: The following must be submitted with this application
    1. Provide a copy of his/her current paramedic license.
    2. Provide proof of 6 months full-time employment during the last three years as a paramedic.
    3. Provide proof of current certification in advanced cardio-pulmonary life support skills.

    Hope this helps. Like I said, I'm not familiar with either of the transition programs or what will affect your application, but this is what I found directly on the application.
