Southwest Tn Community College

  1. 0
    I just found out yesterday that I was accepted to the nursing program at SWTCC!!! I'm very excited yet scared to death at the same time. I'm looking for advice and what to expect from former students. Where did you buy your scrubs, stethoscope, and shoes??? How are the classes?:wink2:

    Hey Shandra2008,

    I really don't have any tips other than to do your best on your pre-reqs and make sure you get ALL of your application stuff in on time. If you have to mail something call before the due date to make sure they got it. Luckily I called the day before the due date and there was one form or something they didn't receive and I was able to fax it over. I made a 125 on the NLN (I'm terrible in math). Had A's in A&P I & II and a B in Microbiology, don't really think that they look at your GPA. I was accepted the first time that I applied to Southwest but was denied twice at Northwest MSCC. Good Luck!!!

    Hey TN NurseStudent21,
    I have no earthly idea which teachers are good or not!!! I know nothing about Southwest. I took all of my pre-reqs at Northwest. Do you know anything about Southwest? Where did you take your pre-reqs? I'm just too excited!! Do you know what supplies we need? What color are the scrubs and where do we get them?

    Shandra2008, I actually looked at Phillips in Arkansas and decided it was just too far for me to drive. It looked like a good school though...good luck, hope everything works out for you!!!
