    Just a quick note not to stress over completing every item for Certified Student Profile - your instructors will review your portfolio and you are allowed a set time frame to have everything completed. I believe it must be complete by the time you start your clinical rotation which is week 6 or 7. Your instructors will go over everything with you on your first day. As long as you have started everything you will be okay.
    THANK YOU! I appreciate you taking the time to fill us in on that. It may seem small, but it will save me many sleepless nights LOL!

    Does everyone have 3 things marked incomplete under the certified background to do list? I feel like I'm forgetting to do something.
    I show:

    • Fingerprints as incomplete (waiting on approval, i think it's the last step listed)
    • ATI testing page as incomplete (I test 1/2/2013)
    • Clinical requirements as incomplete (have few vaccine boosters to complete & physical form still to upload)
    • Action plan for student success compliance as incomplete (I haven't uploaded because there is spot for instructor signature and not sure if we are supposed to wait to get signed)

    Here is what my email (SPC email account) said:

    Thank you for submitting your health program application to the Health Education Center. You have been approved to begin the admission process for the Associate in Science in nursing beginning in the spring 2013 term. The academic requirements are only a portion of the admission criteria; you are responsible for the completion of the items below.

    Admission to your selected health program is contingent upon you completing the following steps;


    - Return the Notice of Intent – All students entering a health program are requested to review their academic records and the curriculum of the program they are entering. This is to ensure you understand the program’s academic requirements and are aware of any outstanding requirements that may still need to be met.
    To confirm you have completed this review and your intention is to continue the admission process for the provisional start date listed above, please complete the Notice of Intent survey found below before November 27, 2012 to indicate that you accept this provisional start date. Failure to complete this survey by the deadline provided will end the admission process and you must reapply for future consideration.

    Notice of Intent Survey


    - Complete a Drug and Background Screening - Students entering a health program are required to successfully complete a drug and background screening. Completion of the drug and background screening by the assigned due date is required to continue the admission process into this health program. Students who are not in compliance with the St. Petersburg College drug and background screening criteria will not be admitted into the health program classes.

    Instructions for Completing the Drug and Background Screening

    o The drug and background screening must be completed by December 5, 2012 to maintain eligible status.
    o To submit your screening order go to: www.CertifiedBackground.com and click on “Students” then enter package code: si22
    o If you need assistance please contact CertifiedProfile.com at 888-666-7788 or studentservices@certifiedprofile.com and a Student Support Representative will be available Monday-Thursday 8am-8pm, Friday 8am-6pm & Sunday 12pm-8pm EST
    Students who do not complete the drug and background screening by this due date will be removed from the admission list and need to reapply for a future admission start date.


    - Attend a Mandatory Health Education Center Orientation ( If you attended the November 15th nursing orientation you do NOT need to come to this one)
    The Health Education Center requires students entering into a health program to attend a mandatory orientation session. This orientation will be held at the Health Education Center and will consist of a Student Affairs session followed by a departmental session with the program's director. Registration for your classes and information about the immunization and physical requirements will be addressed at this orientation.
    The Health Education Center Orientation will be held on December 5, 2012 at 3:00 PM at the Health Education Center. Sign in will begin at 2:30 PM in the main lobby. If you are unable to attend this mandatory session please contact the Health Education Center records office at 727-341-3757. If you do not attend this orientation and we do not hear from you before this date, you will forfeit your place in the admission process.



    Best wishes on a rewarding academic career.
    Regards,


    Damon M. Kuhn, MBA/PA
    Administrative Manager

    I apologize, college algebra is not required for RN, only BSN. I completed my AA degree while doing pre-req's so I took it but not required. Truthfully, get the info by going straight to the reliable source, an HEC advisor:-) Let me know how it goes. Tammy is great in so many ways but especially in her kind yet realistic view of your current chances of being accepted & also excellent at recommending ways to improve those chances!!

    See, my advisor didn't tell me that. She said I could still be accepted while still taking my final prereqs. So annoying & disappointing. So, what do I do in the meantime? Should I take more classes at SPC, such as college algebra (I'd need that for BSN, correct?), and forgo the LPN program at PTEC? Ughh! I need to speak to another advisor. I heard Tammy at the HEC is really good.
    Tammy Cappleman http://www.spcollege.edu/instructors/id/2654

    Is my angel!!! I have been meeting with her and only her for the last 2 years to prepare! I would review the requirements for RN program and then the classes needed for BSN program. Btw, College Algebra & statistics are pre-req's for the associate degree nursing program so if you have not taken those I would recommend meeting with Tammy ASAP to receive factual guideline info and form a plan to completely prepare. Best of luck!!! Also, I never made an appt with Tammy, walking in I never waited more than 20 minutes.

    I'm in my final semester of prereqs (Stats & Microbiology). An advisor & i planned everything fron day one. I applied July 1st, and got rejected Nov 1st. I have a 3.75 gpa. I'm devistated. Now foe the past 2 Weeks, I've been running around like an idiot trying to make PTECs deadline for their Jan2013 LPN program.

    Anyone else not get accepted? Do you know why? What are you going to do now?
    The issue is the point system that they use for acceptance. You could have a 4.0 GPA but they set their point system up so that a student with one class still in progress and a 3.8 to 3.9 GPA has less points than a student with a 3.5 GPA and all prerequisites completed. I was accepted for January 2013, but only through my Earn as you learn program at BayCare, my employer. I knew that I could not get in through St. Pete only because I was still in microbiology this semester. If you apply for the next semester then you will have no problem getting in with all pre-req's complete and that GPA.

    no im not an employee so that's probably why
    Ashley1120 ~ Congrats on the EAYL acceptance!! When you get assigned to a hospital to work at during school, let me know! I work at Countryside! Looking forward to meeting you whenever we do have orientation lol!

    I havent even recieved that email yet! But I havent been for my health screening yet and to sign the promisory note, ect. so I assume I will get it after that....
    I haven't been notified that I needed a health screening? Are you an employee? I am so I'm hoping my health screening task is fulfilled? Who knows, & the school is closed for Vets day:-(

    I was also accepted through the EAYL program & have been so freaked out about not receiving any information about orientation, checklists to complete, etc. all I have received is an email stating when to pick up my tuition voucher.

    No, they did not tell me to come sign paperwork. I just know that I have to go do some health testing on November 22nd. Should I email her to see if I need to go sign something? I am not an employee maybe that has something to do with it.
    I am sure that is the difference:-) we (as employees) had to go through health testing upon employment. I probably have to sign work agreement, etc. because the background check and other details were completed upon employment also. It is rare that non-employees get in if enough employees apply so way to go!!! Looking forward to trudging through the program with you!! Let me know where you are placed as a tech while in school, I work @ Mease Countryside!

    Do you know how we go about doing our background test and everything for EAYL? I haven't received an email to do one yet?
    I believe we get all of that information when we go to sign our paperwork this week in Dunedin. They did instruct you, when they called, to come up and sign your paperwork at the hospital this week correct?

    Congratulations gogator123

    Do you know if they already called everybody who got accepted, or are they still calling?
    The team resources manager (initials TR) said she would be calling all EAYL applicants 10/31. If you haven't heard from them just call. They have always been nothing but helpful and it can't hurt to inquire. Good luck!
