  2. CCAC Boyce Fast Track Fall 2014
    No, its just a regular physical. If there is an apparent physical disability the practioner is not going to sign off on the form but otherwise you're fine. Deep breath, you're freaking yourselves out.

  3. CCAC Boyce Fast Track Fall 2014
    Its been a really great experience. I am very happy with the program as a whole. Nursing school is very time consuming and if you want to do well then you are going to have to dedicate yourself to...

  4. CCAC Boyce Fast Track Fall 2014
    They don't actually have you lift anything, its more just being healthy enough to deal with the physical aspects of nursing care. Also, don't waste your money on the lab jacket. I'm entering the...

  5. CCAC Allegheny Evening ICU clinical opportunities?
    I love CCAC's nursing program. The instructors that I have had thus far are excellent. Each and everyone brings something new and unique to the table. You are not going to have much say as far as...

  6. CCAC Allegheny Evening ICU clinical opportunities?
    Your best bet would be to get a PCT position at UPMC. You may not get a position in the ICU but you will at least get your foot in the door.

  7. CCAC Nursing Hopefuls for spring 2014 start
    This entire process is going to cost you a small fortune, it's best to just come to terms with that now. The two step TB is basically 1 test one week and then a second 1-3 weeks later. You HAVE to...

    They will not except any backround checks that were previously done, you have to use the certifiedbackround.com platform. Your TB test will also have to be redone if it was not the 2 step. If you...

  9. Upmc question!
    If you're on the do-not hire list I don't think you can even do clinical's at the facility (if you decide to go the RN route). That would seriously limit your options in regards to the nursing...

    I'm taking a notepad and a pen, I would consider anything else to be over-kill. That's just me though.

  14. CCAC Spring 2014 Applicants
    Don't always believe everything you hear about previous classes. It seems like admissions at CCAC are very ebb and flow. I know when I first started pre-reqs two years ago about 75% of my AandP1...

    As far as our schedule goes I think our breaks are the same length as the other campus's, we just have the shorter summer semester. I may be wrong though.

    I'll have to check Barnes and Noble, I always use Amazon I'm a sucker for free shipping and fuel perks. Were you able to get your choice of schedules in the lottery at registration?

  18. Which would you take?
    While I agree with you in terms of a professors personality I am referring more to using the site to get an idea of how grading is done. For example is it just limited to a set number of tests, is it...

  19. Which would you take?
    I would go to ratemyprofessor.com and make a selection based on the teacher. A good teacher can make a world of difference (as does significant bonus work, which some offer and some don't).

    No, you do not have to pay for it. The price is included in the certified profile fee. There's a barcode on the paper you print out so you don't even have to do paper work. It was pretty easy. As...
