    Howdy!
    I'm down here in Houston - Clear Lake area. I'm still working prereqs at San Jac South. I'll be attending either San Jac Central or Alvin in the fall. From the posts, it seems I'm the only one from this area.

    I guess that explains why I didn't get a response about which of the two schools above are considered to have the better programs.

    Just thought I would say hi. I'm originally from SE Texas but now living in Austin. I'm in the process of completing my pre-reqs at ACC and intend to transfer to a 4-year nursing program somewhere else in the state.

    Cheers!

    Hey...I know TWU has a nursing school in Dallas...it's supposed to be really good - they actually get a little more attention than the Houston campus, so if you are looking, you might want to check them out. Everyone I have met there is very nice, and there is a lot of pride in the TWU students.

    Really, which program? We Houston students seem to be the minority here.

    HEllo fellow nursing students,
    My mane is Shirley and I'm entering UTMB (UNIVeristy of TExas Medical Branch) BSN in Aug. I'm soooooo excited I see that not many are from the southeast. UTMB is located in Galveston. I've lived in this area all my life but will move to Tennessee after graduation. To vette, I took microbiology at Alvin and talked with some of the nursing students there and they said it was a good program. I personally enjoyed the school, slow paced in a way like people aren't worried about fashion or looking pretty all the time, more focused on academics which I personally liked. It just seemed old fashion in a good way. Alvin is in the country...

    I just did my pre-reqs at SJC-South and am starting the ADN program over at central, wow, 4 weeks from today. So, I guess we'll be in class together.

    I've got Fowler for Foundations and Washington for Assessment 1st 8, Fowler again for Skills and I'm taking the Tu/Th clinical (Shipferling).

    So, lovely orientation wasn't it? I loved the fact that they wouldn't cancel DURRING the hurricaine but cut us loose AFTER it had already gone by. One in my group joked that it was just a loyalty test.

    Nice to see a fellow SJC student on here. You're the first I've bumped into in a year.
