    Hey man, only around 5-7 ?'s on Algebra. You're gonna write your essay on why you want to be a nurse, how you plan on succeeding in the program, what attributes are necessary to be a good nurse etc, etc. If I can pass it, I think anyone can . Best of luck man, lemme know how you end up. I would schedule your test soon because the semester is starting April 6th.

    I was just on UMC's, Valley Health System, and Sunrise's family of hospitals websites. They're listing jobs up the wazoo. If they're not hiring, why are they listing all these openings lol?

    Tuition is 45,000. Because I'm only 22 I had to declare my parents income as well as mine so I was only able to get Federal unsubsidized loans. I got 19,000 worth of loans, leaving like 26,000 remaining.

    No. I went to the info session. A week later I took the NET test and maybe a week after that I did my interview. If you're in Admissions calls you and schedule you for a Financial Aid meeting. You get your paperwork, fill it out, bring it back. FA goes over it. Then you do all your paperwork with Admissions, do your drug test and background check and then you're in like flint.

    Will my EMS background and acute care experience look good on my nursing CV when I get out?

    Not too hard. I took the NET test and did an interview. You find out after that if you're in or not. I'm extremely excited.

    Hey all,

    My name's Nick and I'm brand new to the forum. I'm an EMT and I start the RN program @ Apollo College on April 6th. My mom's a RN and my dad's an MD so of course I had to enter into the bastard child of medicine, EMS. I've come to my senses and I am so excited to start nursing school. Anybody else starting Apollo in April? I've been browsing hospital websites gandering at jobs. It seems like UMC is one of the only places that routinely hires newgrads into the ER/ICU? Is that right?
