    I have a question...Can anyone help me please?
    I am submitting my nursing packet but I am confused about the physical/immunization form. Do I have to include that in the packet because it says that in success camp you have to provide it? Also, I received my transcript from DCCCD and it says to submit that but the envelope says not to open, do I include it in my packet envelope closed? If anyone can help me out, I'd really appreciate it!
    Thanks!!!

    Keep the transcript in the envelope. Once you have the packet complete take it to Ann Cortez do this before the dead line. She will go thru the packet with you before you turn it in to make sure that you have everything complete in it. We did not have to turn in the physical/immunization form until success camp but they may have changed that. I know that other nursing school want it with the applications because you have to be done with all of the shots before you can do clinicals. Ann is wonderful and will be the best resorce that you can have during Nursing School. Remeber that everone goes to her and she is the first contact that we have so be nice to her.
    Good Luck!
    Nursing School is a journey that will be over before you know it.

    The physical/immunization information doesn't need to be included in your application. When I turned in my application she (Ann Cortez) told me that they will give you enough time during success camp to get everything done. Get those shots early though! :-)

    I think you can wait on the immunization stuff until Success Camp. Not wait to have everything done, but wait to turn it in. We turned ours in at Success Camp.
    And yes, leave your transcript unopened in your application folder packet.
    If you open it, it will be invalid.

    Also, if you haven't had a tetanus shot in the past 2 years then you might want to go ahead and have a Tdap with the rest of your immunizations because it is required for your pediatric clinical.

    just wanted to take a moment and tell all the new applicants...
    good luck!

    bh is a wonderful program. now with that being said i want you to realize that there will be many times that changes take place at the very last moment, be patient, i just want you to know up front. there are many people involved in scheduling; clincals for example, the hospitals have to say "yes", then they have to staff accordingly, and then they may have a problem, and then it becomes your problem...get it? but don't be discouraged, all programs have their own set of issues, bh does a very good job at what they do and have a wonderful success rate.

    if you have any questions feel free to post them here on this thread. there are several past students that still sign on and give advise and answer questions. you are not alone! you will feel like it at times, but your not if you just speak up.

    so take a deep breath, hang on, and have fun!
