Miami Dade College (MDC) ADN Class of 2014!

  1. 0
    Hi everyone, Let's get this discussion going! As we wait over the next few weeks for acceptance letters, I thought we would start a discussion for our class and get to know one another!

    I have found so much information on this site and I am already planning on doing my CPR, drug, TB, and titers, as well as the background check before we get the letters. From what I understand the wellness center gets super busy when everyone starts trying to get their stuff done for nursing school. So I'm planning to do this early. If you want the link to everything we have to do before orientation let me know.

    I think last year they received letters in mid-June if I remember correctly but it varies each semester.

    Background info about me.

    I applied to the Medical Campus for both the Accelerated Option (AO) and Generic Full Time but at this point my goal is AO.

    Haven't received my final grades yet but my GPA should be 3.7 (its currently 3.52)

    and my TEAS score was 88 (that was the most stressful day ever!)

    To calculate your score you #1.) multiply your GPA x 10 (3.52 x 10 = 35.2) and #2.)then you multiply your TEAS score by .6 (because it counts for 60% of your admission score) so (88 x .6 = 55.8). #3.)Then you add these two together. (35.2 + 55.8 = 88)

    Good luck everyone! Can't wait to meet my nursing school (NS) family!!!!

    Hey!

    I also applied to the Accelerated option and the Generic Full-Time, as well as the Generic Part-Time. I wanted to make sure I had as many chances as possible of getting in to the program. I am so anxious, and I cannot believe we have to wait at least 6 weeks to find out if we got in! Congrats on your overall score, it's great! My overall score is 79.2. Hopefully that's enough.

    Can you share the link you have for all the requirements prior to Orientation? That would be really helpful!

    Thanks!

    Tati- I'm anxious too! I've been on this website several times a day every day! I can't wait to start checking my email and I have it marked on my calendar. You should get in with that score. They do several rounds also because so many people give up their seat.

    This is the link but its use it only as a guideline because sometimes they change things.

    Hello all....I am presently in the last 8 weeks of the AO program at MDC. Good-luck to you all! I think my combined score was an 84, and I got into both the AO and Generic tracks. I believe most of my counterparts had at least a score of 80. I would just work on the CPR class for now if you haven't done that. The shots/titers/health screenings, you can wait until you get the acceptance letter. In fact, that stuff isn't really that necessary until the program starts. The screenings are really for the clinical sites, so you have plenty of time to get those done. If you want to, you may also want to get at least a flu shot, as most hospitals now require you to get one to attend clinicals there. The Wellness Center can do everything but it's very hectic, and if you have a primary care that can take care of everything for you, I would go that route.
    Good-luck to everyone. I was on the site for something else and decided to check this board. I know how anxious I was before I got the acceptance letter! It has been a very quick year in AO but I am looking forward to the light at the end of the tunnel. AO is not for the faint hearted and although it has been very fast, it has been a year filled with much stress and many long hours!
    Feel free to contact me further when you get into the program for some quick tips before the program starts :-)

    Thank you for sharing your experience. This wait is agonizing and the only thing that helps is reading post like yours. All the best to you!
