    Hi guys!

    I recently took the TNCC course and did not pass the written exam. The lectures were barely finished and I did not feel like I had been given any direction on what to focus my studies by the end of Day 1. It has been almost two weeks since I took the exam and I feel like everything I gained through lecture is slowly slipping away. i have lost all confidence I would love some input on how to go about focusing my studies as well as tips on how to best go about the process of elimination while looking at a test question. I did not find them to be similar to NCLEX (ABC). I have attempted to find practice questions and have not had much luck..I am having a freak out moment so..ANY feedback would be MUCH appreciated!

    I only applied to MCG and Emory- but had planned on applying to 5-6 more. As for what was said about ATC, I was only going on what people told me while I was a transient student there during the Fall. I am sure it is not as bad as people make it out to be.. The ASN program is wayy different than the BSN (which is why I have decided to suck it up for another 2 years). If I were you, I would not write ATC off of my list. From what I hear they have a very good program!

    I took at class at ATC as a transient student..... I do not know anything about their ASN program but have heard that it is difficult to get into. ATC is wierd about the dumbest things though.

    In the health field, some go to college knowing that is what they are going to do while others have a story to tell. I think they forgive more than they let on.Out of cuiosity, what schools have you looked at that do not allow W's?

    Yes. I decided to go into nursing after changing my major quite a few times . It would have been a miracle if i had graduated without any W's. ha. You will definitely have something on many applicants. I would imagine that most applicants have at least 1 W but maybe I am misinformed?!

    i too went through a lot during my academic career and really capitalized on it in my essay. Experience sets you apart period, no matter how much you may have. It shows them that you know what you're getting into and wont back out once you have your eyes opened a little bit. I wouldnt worry about the vol. experience....just keep your head up!

    I had a competitive GPA but they forgave quite a few W's. Also, I was not very involved at schools, besides my volunteer work at the hospital/hospice/etc. That's all to say.... not everyone they select are stellar students. For MCG, grades are not everything which is why the essay is so important. I know its hard to not be worried but just give it a week or so......

    I was told the same thing when I called. The Athens class size is much smaller (25-30) than in Augusta (about 80 people) I lived with a girl who went to the Athens campus.....after seeing some of the differences, I decided that Augusta was Ta better fit for me. Feb.10th is when most of my friends started receiving letters last year.

    Thank you!!!I am definitely relieved! I was accepted to MCG-Augusta, which was my first choice. Which campus did you apply for?

    I had a 3.55 and a fair amount of volunteer experience. I think the shadowing experience will help you stand out from those who are going into this w/o any exposure. If you have any other questions, feel free to send me a message. I hope everything works out!!
