    Hi ev1! I'm attending UTA and just have the Fall semester left to finish prereq's!

    Katie - any more advice on taking the NET? I plan on taking it in October/November... I haven't bought the study guide yet but will soon so that I have as much time to study as possible. Learning style, reading rate, and stress level -- what the heck is that about!!

    What a great thread!

    lol reading rate, etc is just a waste of your time. haha DCCCD doesn't even use that info for admission into the nursing program.

    I bought the NET Study Guide and I think it was helpful.

    Good luck!

    Hi Fun2Care!

    So, what does DCCCD stand for - I'm confused on that one! Your applying to Northlake and El Centro, right? What are the requirements there? I think I'll apply to most of them... UTA, TWU, Tarleton... maybe El Centro...

    Nice talking to you all!

    About the NET:
    The questions are not hard on the test, but there is no time to finish it. During the test I didn't see how much time I have left. It was frustrating. Practice math and reading a lot!

    Has anyone found out the acceptance GPA for the Fall 2005 nursing program?

    I'm just wondering if it stayed at 3.77, went to 4.0, or down... & how many non-nursing courses did the ones that got accepted have completed?????????

    ALSO, I registered for a CPR class at Arlington Memorial Hospital, and paid $45.

    I'm finishing up my last non-nursing course (A&P 2) now. August 29th, I have to get my physical, PPD, and last HepB. By then, I should have my transcripts, and be able to make copies of the physical & shots and mail off the application.

    Then, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait until October along with everyone else.. lol

    I have no idea. Can you call El Centro? Do they give info on phone?
    I registered at Brookhaven College, $50 for CPR.

    Hi! I had gone to the information sesssion for the ADN program at El Centro College on the most recent one this month and they said it was 3.77 was the lowest and they didn't say anything about how many of the non-nursing courses they did complete. She had just talked about how someone who had 4.0 for the pre-q and no support courses done would be accepted over the one who had 3.5 pre-q and all of the support courses done. I am also applying by August 31. I have to get my 2nd Hep B shot and my 2nd chicken pox shot and then I will turn everything in.

    Oh wow $45 for CPR? I had to pay $65 for the one that was held at El Centro. Wish I had looked around at the prices. Anyways good luck!!

    LKG6....$50's not bad either

    lalajenn....thanks for the info. If it stays at 3.77, then I have a chance! lol

    I DO NOT WANT TO TAKE ALGEBRA OVER AGAIN!!!!

    As for the CPR.....I thought it was awfully low. I made sure to ask if it was a recertification class, and they said it was both new and recerts together. I looked around, because I wanted something close that worked into my schedule. (8 AM at El Centro....YUCK!) lol

    I was wondering if anyone knew what to do if you don't have copies of your immunizations records? I think most of my shots where done thru a clinic that doesn't exist anymore. Any info would be appreciated =]

    2 of my friends who went through the nursing program last year had the same problem. They made them take all the shots over. The Health Occupations office made me take mine over for another healthcare progarm at El Centro. They are pretty strict, So you should really call up there to find out ASAP>

    EL Centro's Health Cneter does offer them at a reduced rate.

    I have a copy of mine that I got from my high school. Luckily, they still had my file in a storage room. I called ECC, and they said that was fine.

    I think Dr.'s offices only have to keep records for 10 years. I was born in '73. So...it doesn't matter even if I did know where I got all my shots at. LOL

    I finally got someone to answer the phone, and asked her what was the cut off for the fall semester. She argued with me saying, "We haven't had a fall semester yet." So, I explained again what I wanted. Then she said, "Our deadline isn't until August 31st." I said, "No, that's for the Spring." "I'm wanting to know the cut off GPA for the students that got excepted for the Fall semester. (For the 3rd time..lol) Finally the miscommunication ended...I guess it's just still early. lol

    Right now, they are at 3.77 with 11 credits of support classes completed. She didn't know the GPA of the support classes. So, if it stays the same, I have a chance.

    By the time I register (after A&P 2 is over next week) I'll be at 3.77 with all 17 credits of support classes completed.

    :angel2:GOD, PLEASE HELP ME GET IN AT NORTH LAKE FOR THE SPRING '06!!!! :bowingpur :bowingpur :bowingpur
