    Hey all,

    I'm an army wife whose husband is currently stationed in Texas. We're originally from the Baton Rouge area and when he gets out (in about 2 1/2 years) we'll be moving back. I'm in an ASN program right now and I'll be finished before we move back. My dream is to work at Womans. I love the hospital, plus myself and my two children were all born there. These are my questions:

    1. Is Womans on some type of hiring freeze? I hear the city is "saturated with RN's". Is this true?

    2. I will have an associates degree because the military is paying for it. They will not pay for a BSN. Does Womans hire RNs with just an associates? I am planning on getting my BSN but I'll need to work while doing so.

    3. This isn't really a question but if anyone that works there or has worked there could give me some insight it would be greatly appreciated. Like I said...my dream job!

    Thanks! And you as well. I registered and got my classes. Now it's just books and supplies and I'm ready!

    Yeah I think I've got my scheduled figured out for the most part. I'm going to try and register at midnight on the 28th to make sure I get my first choice of classes! I have two kids so I really need the schedule that will work best for the three of us

    No, I'm taking A&P I, English Comp I, Intro to Nursing, and a dev math course . It's been at least 5 years since I've been in school and math is definitely NOT my stongest subject. But I decided to take the class because I eventually want to get my BSN and I'll need some foundation skills in algebra.

    I'm starting my pre-reqs Spring 2011. I'm going for the RN program as well. I'll be taking A&P this spring.

    You will do fine. I started my program this August, and I absolutly suck at math. I used the test prep booklet, worked the problems out in the book over and over, everyday until the test, and passed with about 20% higher than I thought I would....Not saying that it's easy, but the prep books are usually right on the money. Good Luck!
    How long did you give yourself to prepare? I don't have to actually register for another 3-4 weeks. What amount of time would you recommend taking to study?

    You should check out the TEAS info under the "student" tab..lots of questions answered there

    That's helpful, thank you both. I am worried now that my math skills won't be good enough for the THEA. I've been out of school for a while and whatever I did absorb from high school has probably long since been forgotten. I suppose there are study guides for the test. At least I hope there are!

    Hey everyone, I'm applying now to start my pre-req's at Central Texas College. I noticed in their course list that there is no math required. Is this normal? I'm not very proficient in math and it seems like it's a necessary skill to get into the actual program itself. This is a two year program for ADN. Does anyone have any insight?
