Nhcc - page 3

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

    Nothing much to add to what NuHAH said, but to say you got to find out ahead of time what reading to do In our E/W class we felt like we were entering a secret society because none of us had a clue what to expect about anything nursing school related until the first day of class...even then we were all lost until about 1-2 weeks into it LOL

    The dosage test is alot of converting (teaspoons to mL), inches to centimeters, mg to g, etc. I think we had some you need to give 250mg of Tylenol and have 125mg tablets, how many do you give, etc. At least now they let you use calculators! I remember the second semester dividing out to 5 places on paper...Yuck!!

    Hey everyone! I'm at Hennepin Tech right now to get my LPN and I'm going to do the mobility option at NHCC when I am done. Do you have anyone in your classes that are doing this? I went to NHCC as a PSEO student when I was a senior in high school so I have many of the prereqs done except for the biology courses. I was thinking of doing some of them this summer, I don't know if or how the A&P course I have to take at Hennepin Tech will transfer to NHCC, does it just cover A&P I? I guess I will have to ask a counselor but I wanted to know if anyone had any info first. Did anyone have any trouble taking any of the biology courses over the summer?

    chuchie~we have about 8 LPN's in with us this year. I wouldn't recommend A&P over the summer, too much info to cover. I took micro over the summer without any problems. The only thing with that is that you have to have biology completed before you can take micro. I can't see biology being that difficult to take over the summer if you have any biology background and if it seems to come somewhat easy for you.

    Thanks for the info! I'm going to apply for the summer and over the next year to get all my pre-reps done with so I can apply and start the Summer transition part of the mobility program. That's too bad that I have to take General Biology before Micro, because last night I was really hoping that I could do these two in the summer, take A & P I in the fall, and then finish with A & P II in the spring inconjuction with my classes at Hen. Tech. Of course, there is always the risk that that these classes will fill up even before they let me register. I see on their registration site that they have continuing and returning students with 20 plus credits get 1st priority for summer so hopefully that will be enough to overcome that problem! Ahhhhhh nursing school and it's many problems...........:spin:

    Have you heard back about your acceptance status yet?

    I was actually just coming on to see if any of you had heard yet and see that xptp beat me to the punch.

    It shouldn't be much longer but I know it feels like years...keeping my fingers crossed for you guys.

    YEA CONGRATULATIONS

    I can't believe I will graduate in about 30 days. So it is possible and it does go by fast (at times..LOL)

    Where did you sign up to do clinicals, the cities or St. Cloud?
    Let me know if there is anything I can help you with and again CONGRATULATIONS!

    Hi there and thanks!

    I will do my clinicals in the Twin Cities. What about you? What's orientation like? What about the load of information and the class content? A&P 2 is getting so tedious, although I'm doing fine. I am trying to figure out how I am going to arrange my time. There is a possiblity that I will be going through a divorce and am currently seperated. I have an 11 year old daughter so I'm just trying to figure out schedule wise. When did you start the clinical weekends? Also any advice about what to brush up on over the summer? I fill be working full time as I have to and can't leave my current job it supports me, but it;s not in healthcare. THanks for all your support!
