  2. Great Bay CC Clinical sites
    I'm pretty sure we're wearing a Barco 7178 three pocket unisex vtop. It appears to be still available, and thank god for that because women's tops wouldn't be too flattering on a guy my size, lol....

    The scrubs are Barco in Hunter Green, but I see you've already done your research on that. There was a small selection of white labcoats we were allowed to choose from also, but no white scrubs. I...

    I'm quite impressed with the program and most of the faculty here. Clinical sites can extend as far south into Lawrence MA, but for the most part all are within thirty minutes of campus in Dover,...

  7. Male nurse working with female patients.
    It's been my experience in clinical that female patients over 50 or so sometimes aren't comfortable with male nurses. Don't get me wrong, they'll let you do their assessments, wound care, and med...

    Overall I'm quite happy with the program, they want us to succeed, and although it can be quite tough to get in, once accepted the failure rate is quite low. It sounds like the new scoring system...

  11. GBCC 2011 Hopefuls
    It's a great score, I'll graduate in May and you would very likely have been accepted in my class with those scores and A+P completed. I wouldn't worry too much about the science, a 91 is great, and...

  12. Are there any scholarships or grants aside from FAFSA??
    I'd strongly suggest picking up work-study. There are many scholarships at my school that you must be nominated for by faculty and I've found that work-study gives faculty the opportunity to get to...

    As far as English and Math on the NLN you might already be pretty strong and not yet know it. You won't be able to rely on a calculator, every thing must be done longhand on paper. But... it's...

  16. What are the steps to getting into GBCC?
    Keep on with the health science classes, they certainly won't hurt you. I'd suggest taking all the science and math you can handle. You'll have to take the PAX-NLN test. GBCC offers workshops...

  17. How much did you pay for books your first year?
    Spent $900.00 and the bundled package was actually cheaper than had I purchased it at I believe everything was published after 2008, so there isn't a great deal of used items yet. My...

  18. What does it take to be accepted to GBCC?
    I would definitely suggest retaking the NLN before next year's application deadlline. The school accepts your highest score. CAPS offered a few NLN workshops in the fall, and I have heard good...

    The summer schedule is posted, and the school is offering a six week A+P 1 course followed by a six week A+P 2 course. I sure wouldn't want to do both A+P's in twelve weeks... Is it a possibility...

  23. What does it take to be accepted to GBCC?
    Betty, you're probably absolutely right in that you were denied because of A+P 2. I was accepted, and have completed A+P 1+2, and most of my pre-reqs. Had a 162 composite on the nln with 99's in all...
