    I also do not have my CNA, so my schedule is like this:

    Monday
    4:00 - 6:00pm - Theory
    6:00 - 9:00pm - Nursing 140 (CNA class). This has already ended. It only lasted 6 weeks.

    Tuesday
    OFF

    Wednesday
    4:00 - 10:00pm - Clinical

    Thursday
    4:30 - 6:30pm - Nursing 140 (CNA class). Already ended.
    6:30 - 8:30pm - Clinical Topics (We have now moved this class to go from 4:30 - 6:30pm)

    Friday
    4:00 - 6:00pm - Theory
    Thanks so much for posting this. Just one more ? Can u apply to get hour CNA license after that class is over ?

    My understanding is that we can sit for the CNA exam, but not until the semester is over. CNA licensure requires a certain number of clinical hours, and we won't complete all the clinical hours until the semester is over (they count our regular clinical hours for the nursing program as the clinical hours for the CNA requirement).

    Hope that helps!

    Thank you Matka for posting evening times, I'm sure that really helps the incoming night students. Does anyone know though what a daytime schedule may look like? As always, rumors fly and go in so many different directions - I've heard you have to be at your clinical site at 6am. I'm sure this could pose childcare issues for people including myself, which needs to be figured out in the next month or two. Does anyone know if 6am clinical times is legit or is this a rumor like all the other stuff I've heard?
    It really depends on who you have for clinical, but 6:30 am is usually the time you have to be there. Definitely before 7 am for the day program. And you can sit for the CNA class once semester 1 is over and your grade has posted to your official transcript.

    Katie I will most def say a few prayers for you because you will be in the nights program with me and it would be great having such an awesome person in my group. If it is meant to be it will and we can only pray for you now. Last semester that is how a few got in. Fingers crossed, prayers and if not you have many classes to take. Good luck
    That would be excellent I see a study/supprt group in my hopeful future hehe!

    I meant you can sit for the CNA exam, not CNA class!

    I got accepted into the day -- Spring 2013 program at JJC. I think what helped is having all my pre-requisites done. I am excited because this is a blessing to finally have a career. As with most other students, I am a mother and in my mid 30's. I am hoping to get in touch with like-minded individuals in the day program that can motivate and push one another to excel. I read it is going to be hard, but doable. There are people that graduate after all! I want to see my picture on the frame outside of the nursing department in the graduating class of 2014. Good luck to all. Stay positive. Pray. Any recent students that could help me with a reading list to get started since I have a couple months to idle? This is a great site and the students that have helped informing others and posting and motivating -- You are indeed very caring and rightfully need to have karma come out to you and nurture you with health, wealth and happiness because of your kind deeds!

    I have heard to start looking at nursing incredibly easy books. They have some in the jjc library to. I got one today. Just good to start looking at. Also freshen up in math ratio stuff for medications. I have the math from nursing 100 good idea to look it over if you can. Good luck and congrats to you as well.

    Hello everyone - For any of you new day nursing students, you may be curious about your upcoming schedule. It's been bothering me, b/c I need to get childcare in order, so I called the nursing department and below is the entire schedule they gave me. We of course pick only one time for each day, those are just all the classes available.

    Theory is Monday and Friday -
    8-10am
    10-12 am
    or 1-3

    Clinical Topics I think she said - this is Tuesday
    8-10
    10-12
    or 12:30 - 2:30

    Clinical will be either Wednesday or Thursday
    8-12 (1st 4 weeks in class)
    7:30-12 (following 5 weeks in nursing home)
    7:30-12 (remainder of semester in the hospital)

    And for those of you who do not have your CNA, you will have to add the Nurs 140 class ontop of this schedule.

    Also, I asked earlier if anyone knows if we have to be at our clinical site at 6am, because that is the latest rumor. Obviously, the above schedule dictates this is NOT the case - we only have to be at our clinical sites that early in the FOURTH and final semester.

    Hopefully this will help some of you understand what our schedules will look like and maybe clear up any confusion. The lady who I spoke with said we will ALWAYS be done before 3pm every single day too, so I'm sure some of you have older kids that probably get home around that time - hopefully you can be there to greet them while wearing your scrubs and stethoscope

    So proud of all of us, is everyone getting excited/anxious?

    I really think this is VERY INACCURATE. Please don't go by this....the ladies in the nursing office really don't know much. They are just the secretaries. You will never get out of clinical at 12pm and showing up at 7:30am???? I really doubt it. Sorry, but I just don't want you to think this will actually be your schedule. It won't. You WILL have to be at clinical way before 7:30am and you will never get to leave by NOON!! Maybe on the first day, but that it. And if you have to take 140, you may be stuck in class till 4pm on one of these days. Believe me, I wish this would have the real schedule
