Anybody thinking about El Centro/ Northlake in the DCCCD for Jan 2006?... Read More

    Wow! That's really great. I hope I can do as well. I will keep doing my best and striving for A's, but I want to avoid becoming a wreck if I make a B at some point.

    I never cared about anything but passing until I decided to become an RN. It was weird at first. Then, the longer I talked to everyone, the more worried I became about whether I had a chance or not. Someone I talked to claimed they were rejected from El Centro with a 4.0. That really had me depressed until, upon further questioning, I found out she had 2 B's in her prereq's. NOT a 4.0!

    I guess I'll find out in 19 short days!!!!! It's nice to know I'm not the only one out there obsessing about my letter and my GPA!

    I have made all A's since I started for my ADN, but as y'all know I have a B in Algebra from 2002, and a B in American Lit from 1992.

    So, 3.77/3.82 is my best offer. I don't want to take Algebra over again if I don't have to.

    I just hope I can manage an A, or at least a B in this chemistry class!! lol

    I have my last Chemistry exam on the October 19th, so hopefully I'll be able to concentrate.

    Do you already have CPR card? I have read that it is needed for applying.
    Do you know any place that have cheap CPR class?

    Were yall aware that DCCCD requires that you CPR cards be maintained ANNUALLY, as opposed to Bi- Anually. Yes, its a pain, but what can ya do. Just dont get your CPR till right before yoiu enter program.

    Just a thought from a DCCCD'er

    I took the CPR for health prof. class at Brookhaven in August, because it was required for application.
    Shanna349, are you in the El Centro/North Lake program?

    ECC/NLC requires it to be replaced before your 3rd semester, whether or not it expires after that.

    BHC, I believe, requires it every year.


    **Welcome, Shanna** Congrats & good luck on the NCLEX, and your future career!

    thats an annual recert..

    yeah our whole class griped about how our cards didnt expire for a whole year, but we were told it was a DCCCD thing, not just a BHC req'mt.

    Hi Shanna349,

    I was had a couple of questions for you about Brookhaven:

    1) Do you remember what the lowest number of points was for acceptance?

    and

    2) How was the HESI? Did the study guide help much? (oops I guess that's 3 questions, huh?!) I'm a little worried about the A & P section.

    Thanks in advance,

    Sandy

    The score went up after the year I applied. I would venture to say that you need at least a 21 on your HESI (86 or above?) and definatly ALL your supports completed to give you a good shot at placement to the interview process. ...but then again, you never know who's applying, so dont hesitate to turn it in cuz it cant hurt!

    Dont worry about AP.
    and no, the review did not help much as far as content of questions. Study the basics of AP in your AP book.

    Good Luck!!!

    The reason the CPR cards are only good for a year is because the HOSPITALS require them to be renewed every year - including any students who are doing rotations there. Even housekeeping, admitting, pharmacy and non-direct patient care staff have to have annual CPR in most hospitals. That's why DCCCD requires you to renew them every year. It isn't their fault
