Hi everyone! I am a new member. I recently applied to NHCC evening/weekend nursing program for a Fall 2007 start. I already have my BA in another field, so I only have A/P and Micro to finish up... Read More

    If memory serves me right (which it may have only been two years ago but somehow seems like eons ago LOL) we found out mid-April or so. They told us the first of May but we did end up getting them a few weeks before we expected them. Still, it felt like the longest two months of my life (ok, being at the end of a pregnancy with what ended up being a 10 lb boy was the longest two months of my life, buyt you know what I mean ) Luckily A&P usually keeps one so busy that there is no time to think about much else!

    Good luck guys, and let the fun begin today! (here's me waving and wishing you good luck tonight)

    Holy smokes! A 10 lb boy! You poor woman:uhoh21: I could barely handle 2.

    So A&P is definitely going to be brutal. I think I can handle the content, but I am a bit worried about handling my time correctly. I have been out of the loop so long and now have the kids. I am going to try to stay ahead of the game. I also have online Med terminology and Int comm. They seem ok though.

    I got my card today stating that they recieved my App. I am not counting too heavily on getting in since I still dont have 3 bio grades in that are Prereqs, but what the hay, I have nothing to lose. If I dont get in I'll jsut spread my few classes out over the next year. Anyway, thanks for hte head up on maybe hearing in April. That would be great b/c then I'll know if I need to load up on summer classes or if I'll get to enjoy some summer sun:spin:

    I'm in the day program, the program has definately been challenging. I have worked as a nursing assistant for a long time which has helped me tremendously! I think the care plans where the biggest challenge. I honestly don't mind the class part of it, but the clinicals make me so nervous

    Why do the clinicals make you so nervous?

    The thing is that I know I am smart and I know my stuff, but when I get in there, It's like my brain shuts down or something. I am generally a nervous person, but I'm working on it!

    they will send you all the info. Usually you have to sign up for an orientation session, you will have to get certified in CPR for health care professions and have proof of immunizations before starting in the fall.

    Once you get your acceptance letter, you have to accept or decline, and you will have to pay 100 dollars to hold your spot. You sign up for orientation which I believe is in May, and they will give you all the rest of the info about items that you need, CPR, immunizations, etc! Good Luck!

    Oh, I forgot to mention that the 100 dollars that you give to hold your spot goes straight onto your tuition balance once you start!

    Are there any classes or test you have to take over the summer? anything you need to do prior to Fall start? also what kind of math do they have you doing?

    Thanks for taking the time to answer, I appreciate it.

    No tests or anything over the summer, it may be wise to read ahead if you get accepted! Usually they will post the readings up for you to see after orientation in May. Also, the math is basically dosages, there is a dosage calculations book that you can get at the bookstore if you want to study over the summer. The first math test is just cross multiplying. They also, have you take a medical terminology test but that one isn't bad! you can get that one at the bookstore also!
