    Hey Virginia!

    Before attending the meeting on July 13, call and make sure they did not change it. I was also planning on attending and they said it was moved to July 27. Please call to make sure.

    The date was changed to July 27 at 4:00. It will be held at the Downriver Campus instead of the Northwest Campus. Does anyone have any idea what goes on at the information meetings?

    They tell you the dates for the application meetings. They tell you what you need to apply, pre-req. and they tell the way the pick the 120 people they let in, sort of. Other then that....its a long meeting of telling you if you are wanting money and that is the only reason you are doing nursing it isnt a good match for you because it is a lot of work. They stress that you should get all the co-req's that are not nursing classes out of the way before you are in the program and that your shouldnt work a 40hr job during the program and stuff like that. If you are ready to apply they MIGHT give you an application at the meeting but they didnt give me one dispite it saying they would. Hope that sums it up for you

    It lasts around an hour and a half. The discussion is on what you need to do to apply and also a discussion on some of the rumors going around. It is informative. You now get your application at the application meetings. So if you have a copy of the info for applying to the program, the info meeting covers everything on that literature.

    Hi all,
    This is my first post and reading all of the WCCCD students post for over a year now. I am finishing my pre-reqs and co-reqs now. I will be applying for the program in the Spring of 2007 at WCCCD. I'll be attending the nursing information session on July 13 and taking my NET in August.

    My sister completed the nursing program at WCCCD in December 2005 and passed her boards on the first try. She's been very encouraging to me through this process.

    But to all my fellow WCCCD students out there, keep the faith and stay focused.

    Hi there, that is awesome your sis is a grad. I bet she does have alot of encouragement for you. I have wondered how the grads do on the boards. That is good news to hear that she passed on her first try. Did she already have a job lined up before she graduated?? I have a hospital in mind where I would like to work, but I have to get accepted first. I am still waiting for that letter to come...any day now. Good luck to you on your application also. When I applied on May 24th, there were a lot of people there. Make sure you have absolutely everything in order when you do apply. The background check has two pages, so make sure you print them both out. Hope you get in!! On myspace.com there are some grads pages on there. They graduated a few years ago and they both have awesome jobs. One is a flight nurse as well as an ER nurse. The other works at U of M. Keep up the good work and good luck to you.

    Thanks for the info! I haven't finished all my pre-req's, but I'm just about done. I still wanted to attend an information meeting. Just so I can know everything ahead of time. Do you think that it would be wise?

    I went early before I even started the pre-reqs. good thing that I did because it really showed what pre-reqs you need... the main cataloge for the college is incorrect and a lot of the list you get in the counsiling offices are incorrect as well. Plus it lets you get down and understand what is required of you. Like I said I went just after finishing BIO 155 before I started the pre-reqs for nursing...also I did complete ALL co-reqs so basically when/if I get into their program this fall (no, no one knows if they got in, this place produces mail about as fast as a constipated person purduces a turd) I will only have to do nursing classes. From what I hear the first 8 weeks of the nursing program is hell and that is just nursing classes not anything else... so I could imagine that it would be really bad if you had another class to finish along with this program...
    I am currently taking 13 credit hours for the summer..the last classes I needed SOC100, DT130,BIO252, and Eng120. Although it makes me bang my head and wish I had a vacation I am really happy that it is done NOW rather then waiting and trying to fit it in somewhere along the way.

    I can be honest with you...I took a LOT of online courses(doesnt mean they are easier some are but some are harder), in fact the only classes I have had that were in person is A&P I and II and DT 130. Everything else has been online and this semesters SOC100 is a telecourse. I would say that if they had offered DT130 online i would of taken that (they are next semester as well as SOC 100 online). Anyway A&P needs a class and that really is the only one I found that I cared to have a class for but online classes are not for everyone, but I REALLY like them. SO if you need any online teacher suggestions I dont mind helping you with that.

    I am going into my second year of pre-req's. I took all of Spring semester online. Fall semester I will have 16 credit hours. I will be taking DT 130, Eng 250, Lifespan Development online. Bio 155 and Math 112. I am a little skeptical of Bio 155, so hopefully you could let me know what I'm looking forward to. Also what was the Net like? Is there anything in particular I should be looking out for? What really are the pre-req's needed for nursing since the list I got from the office is incorrect? Thanks!

    BIO 155 isnt a pre-req of nursing nor a co-req. I didnt take that online but I have heard very good things about the online class.
    HSC200 online is Great you will like it.
    The pre-reqs are:
    A&P 1 and 2
    Eng 110
    Microbiology
    Psy101

    I know some of the lists do not have psy 101 as a pre-req. The NET is easy but if you are rusty in math then take that first and THEN take the NET cause the net is heavy math and its all mental math so even if the teacher allows for calculators Try without.
    Other then that make sure you have a good A&P teacher as you will use it a lot and the foundation is the most important step.
    Then be sure to not stress to much, take deep breaths and plug away.

    I meant to say that I am taking Bio 155 and Math 112 on campus. Who are some good instructors for Bio 155 or other science classes?

    This class is no joke. It was tougher than all the science classe put together. It is an overview of all the biology areas. I struggled and worked very hard in this class, which happened to be my first class. I did make my A', but worked very hard for it. On the up side, I learned a great deal in this class. Are you saying you took Nutrition online? I didn't know you could take it that way?
