- Dec 14, '10 by ErindelIm so happy for you!! That must of been some feeling opening that package... So does it explain about orientation? Thats in may right? Hey do u know anyone else who got their letter yet? Im just really discouraged now because I thought i was in for 2011. Oh well, what can i do....
- Dec 23, '10 by LynM75Well, it's official another waitlist letter. For those applying for the Spring 2012 you must now take the TEAS test and attend a mandatory nursing information session. The math for nurses test will no longer be given. Also those already on the waitlist, even though we are qualified applicants must do this as well. What a bummer, right before Christmas.
- Jan 2, '11 by ErindelHi guys, hope everyone had a nice holiday and new year.
Well I got waitlisted again for a third time!!!
I am so disappointed. Congrats to those who got in, and to those who just
Finished their first semester. Can anyone let us know how the first semester went?
Look forward to hearing some responses.....
- Jan 3, '11 by patno86I remember seeing the new application procedures right before I received my acceptance letter, and thinking to myself I wonder if these will apply to me if I don't get in for 2011. I can't believe existing qualified applicants will not be grandfathered into the new system? Erindel - I was wait listed three times as well before the fourth time was a charm!
- Jan 4, '11 by ErindelWell i guess you know what im going through! I hope the fourth time is a charm for myself as well.....
What date did they give u guys to respond by to accept your seats in the program? Maybe someone wont accept by that date and
A spot will open up...heeehee.... Wishful thinking... I think its infair we are not grandfathered in. I feel all the time i spent preparing
For the math for nurses test and the cpt was a waste of time. Oh well i have to go by what they want now. Well im still happy for you that you
Got in. you have something great to look forward too!!!
- Jan 4, '11 by JamesMErindel- The first semester was not easy by any means. There are certifications in the lab almost every week. Many found them to be stressful because in order to master them, you had to spend a lot of time in open lab every week. The tests came straight out of the powerpoint lectures; study those and you will be fine, but there is a lot of material in each lecture and there are a lot of lectures on each test. All the professors are very helpful. Clinical was the easiest part for me. Just make sure you do adequate patient research and you will be fine. The reading was the biggest killer all semester. SO MUCH! I made it through first semester unscathed, lets see how the next one goes. Good luck everyone!
- Jan 5, '11 by ErindelHey James, thanks for responding... Congrats on making it through the first semester!!! I can imagine how much reading is required for fundamentals. I think clinical will be easier for me.. Whenever i get there! Ha. Did you guys go to two different clinical sites? Was nutrition incorporated into the program? I hear pharm next semester is a doozy.. Goodluck with that. I think intergenerational nursing sounds more interesting. Have you gone to studystack.com ? It has alot of pharm help in the health/medical section. Well again congrats and goodluck!
Keep in touch when u can.
- Jan 5, '11 by JamesMThere are 4 different clinical sites to choose from, and you do two of them; One is a nursing home (which they wanted us to call an extended care facility) and one is a rehab from surgery. Yeah, i hear that pharm is a doozy but they are giving us the reading list next week to start it before the semester starts. Intergenerational nursing has 4 different clinical components: pediatric, rehab, maternity, and community. Should be an interesting/stressful semester. I will try to keep you posted as often as possible.
- Jan 6, '11 by ErindelI bet you will do great next semester. Study hard and enjoy clinical. Itll go by so fast for you, then youll be done!!
Enjoy your time off thanks again for responding.
- Jan 6, '11 by LynM75This whole TEAS test is bugging me, not the fact that we need to take it, but the fact that I had to take the Math for Nurses twice... I failed (by one point) the first time in June 09, so I couldn't submit my application until I passed it. I was taking A+P over the summer, so after that was over I studied for the Math for Nurses test in August and got a 98. Then I put in my application...the one thing that held me back is no longer a requirement! I might have already been in the program...sorry I'm just venting here, I'm a little steamed. best wishes to those in the program already, I'm sure all of your hard work will pay off in the end.
