- 0Nov 8, '11 by mmeyers83Hello! My name is Michelle, I am new to this site, applied for 2012 RN program and I have chem and micro left after APII this semester. Taking dosage calc in Jan. I am so ready to start the program! I read all the previous posts on this thread, the program sounds demanding but rewarding. Anyone who has done or is in the program at SCC, what are clinicals like? My mom is an RN for 30+ years and she says at first the instructor will be with you and after a while you are by yourself and quizzed on a pts medical info like allergies etc. and clinical students are basically free labor. At least thats how it is at her hospital in STL. I know clinicals are obviously necessary but I was wondering how your experiences have been? Thanks!

We are free labor but we learn a lot. You have your choice of day or evening clinicals and everyone seems to love them.

U should take two bios and a chem in high school if u still can... It will help get some prerequisites for the nursing classes (not program) done... And save u some time... It could be a year or two process, although they say there is "no wait list" but they have admitted upto fall 2013 already so you do end up waiting!Get in there ASAP! The website says call for an appointment but now they only take walk ins 9-7 m-th and until 5 on fri.For those of u waiting to take dosage test for admimissiOn prior to fall 2013, not including lpn bridge, they admit the first 80 people to pass the dosage test, and have about 250 people scheduled to take it and they are having a great passing rate and plan on stopping the exams soon due to filling the 80 spots!!!! Sucks! And you are schedule in the order you cOmpleted the application process...
