Hey everyone! Upon reading some other nursing students post that applied last year to start TCCs nursing program this Spring 2017 I figured I would make one for us students applying for the spring 2018 start. I want to get into the evening/weekend cohort so I can stay with my young one during the day and then go to class when his dad comes home but I will be applying to all cohorts. I took chemistry at ODU and received a B and have also taken HS chemistry. Attended my open house session. I have A's in ENG 111&112. B in SDV 101. This semester I took A&P I, PSY 200 and PSY 235. I will most likely get a B in A&P and A's in both PSYs. I'm taking Micro over the summer and then A&P II and PHI 226 in the fall. Applications are due August 15th. I have not taken my HESI A2
yet I plan to do it at the end of July. I bought the book the school recommended for studying for it but have not studied it much yet I plan to once this semester is over. I am so nervous about applying. I've worked SO hard and I feel like it would be so devastating to not get in. I've read some other posts and I'm nervous about not having A&P II and PHI 226 completed by the time I apply. I hope they will look at my other grades and know I will do well in those classes too. I made this post so if other students find it we can encourage each other, answer each other's questions, and keep up with each others progess- after all we might be classmates in less than a year- might as well make friends now, am I right?
anyhow, good luck to all of us!!!!

It's such a long shot for me, and sometimes I'm even wondering to myself, "why bother applying?"
I only have MICR 150, BIO 141, ENG 111, SDV 101, & PSY 201 --- which are 5 out of 9 co-requisites.. granted, my cumulative GPA is a 4.0. I took the HESI A2 today, and somehow scraped up a 91%. I have all my pre-requisites done, and am taking the rest of the corequisites this fall so if I don't get in Spring 2018, I can have a shot at Fall 2018.
Regardless, it's hard knowing that people who are also trying for the same seats have bachelors, have all their co-reqs done.. you know? Is it just me that feels a little hopeless? I'm trying to look on the bright side, but man I'm really reaching for the stars here. I hope I get in though. Hahaha!
