- Jan 5, '10 by grechi2009how long were you on the waiting list and when did you get your waiting list number? I am very confused on how the waiting list works....I am number 44 and I am just wondering if I will at least be admitted for the fall of 2011 how many students do they take a year for the clinical part?
- Jan 5, '10 by grechi2009hi purify me,
when you got your waiting list number in jan of 06 did you get a letter saying that you cant start clinicals bc the class for fall of 07 was already filled up and they called you later to tell you you can start or did you just not hear from them after getting your number so you just assumed you were not going to start until sept of 08 and then they send you a letter saying you got in for fall of 07? I am just trying to see if I have a chance to get in bc I have been in school for four years and I am looking at applying to christ since there is no waiting list and I can start this fall and in the letter I got from rwc it said I wont start this fall so I wont be able to start til fall of 2011!! They only take students for the fall right?
- Jan 6, '10 by PurifyMeWow, looks like I missed alot of questions. I'll do my best to answer them. : JTwildone05: EVERY quarter, your note book will look massive. You have to print out notes for each and every lecture, then take notes on those notes....really. I organized my binder by test topics, if it was on Test 1, it was in a section of my binder labled TEST 1 and so on. Be glad that you don't have any other classes to take except for clinicals, it should make for more study time and possibly time to work if need be. Several of us were in the same boat, so when class was over a 12:00, we could go have and rest for a while before work or studying. As for paperwork. there is a lot of it. It will overwhelm you in the beginninhg, but each quater youwill get better at it, you still hate it and home time consuming it is, but you will get better at it. Math questions are on every test. If you need help with math go see Frank in the science lab in SAHB, on the second floor, he'll help you.
grechi2009: I didn't not get a letter telling me what year I would start. I olny got a letter telling me that I had a waiting list number. Since I was told it would be 2 years, I expected to wait that long. In April of 2007, I got a packet, tellimng ,me I was accepted in the Fall starting class. They only take students in the fall. If you choose to apply to Christ, know that they no longer offer tuition assistance and that this year some of their graduates had to fight for jobs because they were slim. RWC is cheaper, but I understand not wanting to wait, but honestly it will FLY by.
- Jan 6, '10 by JTwildone05Thank you SOOOOO much for the reply. That really helps a lot. I am pretty organized since I have paperwork for my current job so thats not a huge problem. MY last question(I promise). I am so petrified of math so my question is, what are so examples of math that are on the tests??? Thank so so much. Its greatly appreciated. JT
- Jan 6, '10 by PurifyMeThe will get harder as the qaurters go on:
1) You patient weighs 68kg, how many lbs is this:
2) How many Ml per hour should you run 1000ml of D5 1/2 Maintenance IV fluid over 24 hours.
Not too had. I promise
- Jan 6, '10 by JTwildone051) 68 X 2.2=149.6lbs
2) 1000/24HRS = 41.7 of d5 solution
am I even close LOL??? Your pretty much amazing for being so helpful. Thanks- JT
- Jan 9, '10 by PurifyMeCorrect! Just remember to round and they will tellyou to which place. You are welcome. Good luck!
- Jun 27, '10 by medsurgcutiehey, i am seriously considering raymond walters college of nursing to get my rn. to jtwildone05 and purifyme, how do you go about finishing all your classes before clinicals start? i have two children and it seems that if i could do that it may help me find time to sleep at some point. that is my biggest problem when am i going to sleep? anyway thanks for the replies and all the info you've given so far it has been very helpful. anything else you can dish up about raymond walters would be appreciated.
- Jul 11, '10 by smartin13I just graduated in June and had all of my classes prior to the start of the actual nursing classes. I did take several classes towards my BSN while doing classes/clinicals. I worked the entire time I was in the program.
My first year I worked 32-40 hours a week, second year I worked 24-32 hours. I got good grades and never had to pull an all nighter. I know several people who worked during the entire program and did fine (actually it has helped us find jobs after graduation) however I also know people who had to quit their jobs because they were failing.
Like PurifyMe said you will not be able to choose your locations, instructors, or days. Things may change and you will have to be able to work around them. Most of the teachers I really liked, maybe one or two I didn't. I did rotations at several nursing homes, B North, Jewish, Christ, Shriner's, Mercy Anderson, Mercy Western Hills, Hospice of Cincinnati, an adult day care, and with a home health care orginization.
Good luck on your journey!
