    Hey, if you received a letter pending an interview then your pretty much in the program. There are other threads about the interview process. It's more of an orientation and registration more than an interview. I guess they have to say "tentative" because if you don't go to the interview your not officially accepted. I know two people in the program (started in jan '13) and they filled me in on what is to be expected. So breath easy, your in the nursing program. I have my interview 5/20 @ 9am and I'm super excited!! Good luck to us all!

    It was actually fairly quick. They give you a packet with all your info, physical paper, a math test your suppose to bring back the first day of school, and your schedule (it goes by section) they also give you a slip to take to registrar to register for your nursing class. After the chairman speaks to you they have you define some words. I had initiative, responsible and they asked us to write a brief paragraph about how we handle stressful situations. Then you go meet with one of the prof who reads your paragraph, go over the classes you've taken and what you need to take (advisement) and that's basically it. There's also someone there signing you up for CPR classes if you want to take it at NCC it's June,3,4,5 at 9am for $60.

    Yes, I started at 9 and was done by 10. In the interview they just go over what you wrote in your paragraph answering the question. They go over the definitions you defined and they go over the classes you've taken and what you need to take. They make sure you understand all the requirements of the program and clinicals. Then she writes down on a paper a summary of what you discussed and you sign off agreeing to it and that's it! The prof I interviewed with didn't ask me anything about what I wrote down but some people were asked to elaborate on what they wrote. Others where asked "why do you want to be a nurse". The beginning lecture by the chairman of the program was the longest part. Your in a room with a bunch of people and then after you go thru all the paper work then they call you one by one to meet with the prof for the interview process. Honestly don't stress it! The stress will come in Sept!! I think we're all in the same orientation on 8/29 so hopefully we'll meet there

    I honestly don't remember how long the one on one interview was, but it wasn't long. Maybe 5,10 min the most.

    Thanks!! I just read the posts that you wrote below. You pretty much summed it up! It was a piece of cake, my instructor didn't ask me any questions. I'm in section T11. How about you?
