I am interested in knowing about the program as well. I've registered to start the FNP program on Monday. All the information I'm finding is very outdated. I know their has been several graduating classes. It would be good if we could speak to one of them about the program
Hello all! I am about to start the FNP program at United States University on Monday Sept. 4, 2017 and would like to welcome any input from anyone who has any experience with them as I have been able to find very little about the program. I have also started a facebook page for the students since there isn't one at this time and think it will be a great way to get information out to people about the program. So if you are currently a student or looking into the program please don't hesitate to comment below and join the facebook page "United States University Student Nurse Practitioners". Thank you in advance for your input.
well im still waiting for my acceptance letter. Its November 1st and they have to let you know something by the 15th so the countdown begins. I sure hope they dont wait until the 15th ...Its killing me
Still waiting for my letter. 1 month left to wait....Still hopeful !!
One week ladies.. so excited for you all!
Hey so how's the first class going? Cohort 2 starts in 2 weeks. I am so nervous/anxious!
Congrats on your A's !!! That's so great to hear! I think we all feel like its going to be overwhelming and hard to adjust to, but I guess I just gotta suck it up and make some sacrifices these next 2 years and be selfish with my time
Well now we are down to 12 official days. Nervous, I think is an understatement...... I can honestly say I am concerned with the work load. I have not heard anything positive and this concerns me. However, I am keeping my glass 1/2 full.
Nursing school is a very positive experience. Just going through this first class though, many of our lives have changed so quickly and we are still trying to adjust and find what works for us. There is a lot of reading and reading for understanding to apply the knowledge is different from the memorization we are all used to. But in my opinion, nursing school is not as bad as I thought it would be. I will say ive never been so tired though. I have an 8 month old and I choose to give her my time during the day and wake at night while she's sleep to read. That's how I balance my life at home and school. Everyone has to find out what works for them. Lots of us have children and jobs and we do just fine. I made A's on my first two exams and I didn't go crazy with studying and reading.. its all about balance and finding what works for you. Its a very good experience and goin to clinical allows you to get a break from classroom stuff and really experience the career you're aiming for. Sorry if this is long. I just want to help in any way I can. We worked so hard to get in so we all need to help each other stay in. Hope this helps.
Silvanto.. bio 101 is not a prerequisite for TCC. I believe it is for TCC in hampton. Counselors suggest bio 101 for people who aren't confident in science, but I didn't take it because it was a waste of time and money. You couldve went straight into A and P or micro. Did you pick up a nursing booklet from the counselor office? As far as advice, try to get A's in all of your sciences, english, and corequisites. While you are doing the prereqs make sure you take the other classes in the curriculum as well.. the psychologies and ethics. Just ace everything or try to get B's, no C's. You can also look up the nursing curriculum on the TCC site. They want you to have everything completed except nursing classes by the time you apply to be one of the best applicants, however, minimally, all you need is the two englishes, two of the three sciences, high school chemistry (think there's a 5 year limit? Im not sure) and sdv 101.
This link shows all the classes required for the associates degree period
If you have any questions let me know and ill try to answer as best I know. Also you ratemyprofessors.com to look at student comments of particular teachers.
As far as the biology and chemistry parts, it was high school level and I couldn't remember the content. The A and P was a lot of stuff I hadn't learned yet. I just took the second part of A and P this past summer. You will do fine. Since the test is so new, they said they don't focus too much on that. The science grades and corequisites is what they focus on. And with a 4.0 you are ahead of the game. Be confident. Did you already attend an information session? Its mandatory.
Feel like Ive went go through hell and high water to get it!! Nonetheless I was accepted into the nursing program at my community college for this fall! So it started with them not being able to mail the acceptance letters until this Monday.. Well Tuesday everyone got their letter. So it was no question in my mind that I would get mine Wednesday! Well when I didn't receive that letter I freaked! I called the nursing director and found out that they had sent my letter to the wrong address :h no::. Fortunately they are really sweet they allowed me to come in and get a copy of my letter and my schedule!! I start orientation nxt Wednesday! I can't explain how far the lord my Jesus has brought me!! I'm humbled and honored to be given this opportunity I know that if it wasn't for him I wouldn't be here!! I'm very excited and I just want to say god bless all of the newly accepted nursing students starting Fall 2012!
most hospitals require that you have experience of at least 1-2 yrs and clinicals don't count. So I would check on their requirements for applying first. Or if you know someone on the nursing admin team or someone who know's someone on the team then that would also help out as well. Yes a hospital is a great place to work for a first job if you're lucky to get in. I'm currently working at a nursing/rehab facility which hires new grads which I think is also a great first experience but dealing with the same routine everyday doesn't give you that much more experience than you would hope for. But again it is a good first experience... well for me, anyways, I don't know about other people.
Try to apply everywhere you can and don't limit yourself because you never know who might be hiring you and if you might like that first job.
