I was just wanting to see how my fellow students are doing with applying and having to wait till October to find out if we got accepted into the program starting Spring 2013. How did everyone do on their TEAS? Any questions... Read More

    Yes, I took all my classes at Savannah State and they took English 1101 and my Cpu class. Med Term was the first class I took at Chattahoochee last year and this will be my second. I made a B in College Algebra and a A in Psych. I will get a second opinion because I thought that sounded crazy.

    Yes Callie, some schools still have it in the program. My friend goes to Columbus Tech and this is her first semester in the program and she is taking Diet and Nutrition and Pharmacology. And the girl whos book I have went to Chatt Tech and she took this class in the program, so it is exciting to know this is more of a nursing class. We will learn about special diets for infants, women that are pregnant/breast feeding, diabetic patients, patients w/ kidney dieseases, terminally ill patients and so on. How to incorporate their meals in our care plans and how to correctly make a meal plan. We will learn about the type of diets Dieticians and Speech Therapist set for elderly patients like a liquid only diet, mechanical soft diet, pureed diet and so on. We will also learn about when patients are on certain meds, what foods and drinks they cannot have while on this particular medication. It may be interesting after all. I hope Lisa continues with the program as well!
    I really wish you were able to join the program with us, if we get in. You have great passion and knowledge for this profession. Did you learn it all from being a CNA?!

    Mine were transferred in from Baker College in Michigan... and they had no problem transferring them in... maybe the semester switch will help with the transfer! I always have found Marietta campus to be the most helpful, just an FYI.

    Yes, I love everything about nursing. My best friend is a RN and she does all of the care planning at her job, so she was very informative about this course. I work in a Rehab Center and we learn the different types of diets when we are passing out trays and recording the percentage of what the patients eat. We also have to know what supplements certain patients are required to take, so working as a cna will give me a little advantage because a lot of things will be familiar to me. Also, I don't know if you all ever go on youtube and watch the videos from current Nursing Students, but I love to. They give you so much information to help with the things they wished someone had told them! If you get a chance, check out NurseNacole, Nurse Brown Skin, and my favorite: Nurse Stephen, he has a really great story. They will give you motivation and help you through your journey. I may not be able to be with you all through the program, but we can always keep in contact!

    Thanks Callie, I will wait until after the beginning of the semester and check on those classes with someone else. I went to advisement and asked her about the classes, I will contact Admissions this time.

    So this class we are about to take used to be in the program curriculum? Wow, I had no idea. So we are actually going to learn how to properly feed our patients... I am really excited about this now! Now I see why people are saying can jump up and bite you in the butt. Yay! I need a good challenge to take my mind off the next 2 months waiting for this letter.

    Lisa- you are still planning on continuing if you get the acceptance letter right? Despite the financial issues? I hope so!
    Yes I am!

    I've been following all your posts and just wanted to say GOOD LUCK to all of you! You sound like a fun group of motivated students and look forward to seeing your posts about acceptance. I took the TEAS V last week and made an 82..my math score brought me down. I ran out of time and couldn't get to 6 questions, so now I know to really move during the math section. I bought the online pre-tests and thought they were very similar to the actual test, and gives you an opportunity to see how the test is done. I know money is an issue for a lot of us, but wanted you to know that I thought it was worth it. Good luck to all of you!
