    Hi! I want to apply for 1/07 but hopefully fall 06 but their website is down. i saw a few people said they took anatomy and physiology 1 and 2. is this a prerequisite to get into the program? i have a friend that applid 2 years ago and she had only taken a/p I. do i need to take both of them to get in or just the first one?
    Your friend is correct, A/P1-Lec and Lab,Math 118,and English 101 are the course that are required to begin the program. Good luck

    Yes, I begin April 17 and Orientatiom begins April 10. Sorry it took me soo long to respond but my online courses keep me very busy.
    Congrats to you

    I heard that this is an accelerated course... What is your take on it so far? Is it gonna be hard? Hey, aren't you also taking classes now-(and they will overlap?) how are you handling that? Whew

    I have one on line math class that is bustin my butt...and I'm taking my final lab for anat2 this semester... I'm spending more time on this math class than anything.. I think I've already logged over 250 hours on it already....so I knew exactly what you mean about your online class...

    We are over the hump now,,,, just have to stay positive and see the light at the end of the tunnel....isn't there someting like 45 days till the end of the semester..... time to start countin down....

    I applied for charity for fall 2006. Since the hurricane I know everything is messed up, but I hope I can still have a chance at getting in for this coming fall. I called charity today and they said that they have to make a decision by January 23. So I just have to wait a few more weeks to see if I get in. I have been back and forth to charity since I returned home from atlanta. They lost my application and pax scores. I had to go fill another app out and bring a copy of my pax scores. Anyone one else hoping to get in fall 2006???

    Hey everybody, I am new to the site. I just graduated in January from Charity and enjoy reading your posts. I was part of that dreaded senior class of Hurricane Katrina. I am now relocated to Ft Myers Florida with a 10 week old (who I had the day after the final on Jan. 19th) and a 6 year old. I have many a Charity story...know what teachers to take and "stay away from" and what hospitals give the best clinicals. It was the hardest thing I did but If I can do it with a 6 year old, 9 months pregnant during Hurr. Katrina YOU ALL CAN DO IT. Just email me of you have questions and most of all GOOD LUCK.

    hey guys, I have had a few people email and ask about teachers. I am assuming all the same teachers went back. I do know some have moved around to different levels but I will list my top picks for each level
    BASICS- BONDS, MANIERI, LEEFE
    NAC1-BAGBEY, BREEDEN (was my senior instructor but moved to NAC1)
    Mental- EVANS-HERRON
    PEDS- GARCIA, AMIE (think she may have retired) NO STEVENSON!!!!!!!
    NAC11-DODSON (very nice), MS CALL

    Their are many other good ones but these are my top teachers. When you get your sections and know your teachers, post their names or email me and I will let you know wether to stay or run for your life.

    Really wish you all luck and study hard!!!!

    YOU CAN DO IT

    The best thing to do is to take both before you get in if you have time.
    Nursing school is hard enough w/o adding prereqs to the mix

    get a good recorder and make sure if you get a copy of the t-notes (you'll find out what they are) that they are current. Some are so old they are useless. Get the study tips book they reccommend. The questions in the book help you get a feel for the test questions. Remember most of the questions may have two right answers you have to pick the one that is "more right". Make sure to have a 3 inch 3 ring binder for the first day.
    They pass out the course guide which is about 300 pages and basically your bible for the semester. Since the Hurricane most of the elevators get stuck about three times a day. TAKE THE STAIRS!! I just finished Nac 1 in accelerated format. It was hard but I got a B. I am taking Peds/Mental Health over the Summer also accelerated. After all this Nac2 should be a breeze. Good Luck to everyone starting in the summer and fall.
