    Everyone will have to download the RN health info check list that is sent to you once you have been accepted and take it to your PCP to have it filled out. MMR, Varciella, Hep, Tuberculin test and Tetanus.
    Thanks for that info! How soon after application deadline (tomorrow!) did the e-mails for the mandatory meeting go out last year?

    Keep forgetting to ask, does financial aid for gwinnett cover if you take courses outside your degree requirements? Not sure where I got the idea to ask.
    I don't know if HOPE or Pell do; that's something you would have to ask the financial aid office. I think if you get student loans, they would automatically go to cover tuition as long as you're at least a part-time student.

    HOPE does cap the number of credits it will pay for. I would definitely go see them in the Financial Aid office to be certain, though.

    Late Feb. Testing takes place all of March. I advise everyone to wake up very early the day to sign up for the Kaplan so you choose the latest date to take the test. So you can have sufficient time to study.

    Out of curiousity, what if you dont have a PCP? I am certain I've had all these shots before, but this was all back in my hometown many years ago. :S I suppose I should start getting in contact with their health dept. Seeing as it might take me a freaking year to get in touch or get anything from them!

    Is your hometown in Georgia? I can't speak for adults, and I don't know how far back it goes, but Georgia's Immunization Registry is computerized. I just had to order immunization records from my daughter's doctor for her college application, and they printed it off the GRITS system. I know a couple years ago at my checkup my PCP told me it was time to update my tetanus -- I assume that info came they same way, as he's only been my PCP a handful of years. I might try to start with your local Health Department and see if they can access your info through GRITS.

    @divs: Early feb? Gah, that seems like forever. But if they go out that, that'll be earlier than last year, according to RN_Student.

    @aalewine: It has seemed like forever, hasn't it? I am so ready to get into the program and get moving. The waiting is killing me.

    I know! I just want it to be done with and I just want to know if I'm in or not! How did everyone do in their pre req classes?

    Quick question for those of us applying for Fall 2013: are we all current GTC students? I'm in my fifth semester at GTC.

    To answer your question, I'm proud to say I'm applying with a 4.0 GPA. It was hard work -- especially with A&P II over the summer, but I did it. Now I just need to rock the Kaplan.

    How about you?

    No, it's in Miami. Good news is that they are able to fax it over. So hopefully that's enough to bypass needing to see a physician. I may just have to update tetanus because I took it back in the 90s. Really sucks because I'm so not for vaccines, and the idea of taking one makes me extremely anxious.
