    @nickasarbata - I just received my acceptance letter last night and she wrote that the next steps email with our campus placements would be sent out by November 2nd. Also I saw on the status update page: https://sites.google.com/a/austincc....cation-status/ that they wouldn't be sent until next week. Hope that helps!

    Taylors Video Guide to Clinical Nursing Skills


    Author(s): Carol R. Taylor
    ISBN10: 1608311457 ISBN13: 9781608311453

    I think this is what your looking for. Also available to watch in library at EVC on a 2hr loan or one day checkout. At riverside they have it to check out as a textbook. If you use the students resources under the taylors fundamental book and use the access code that comes with your book under the students resource tab it has some of the videos posted there as well. I took this class and did the same thing. Bought the book ahead of time so I just didnt want to pay for the DVD's.

    I got CEC, my first choice! Excited to begin! Annoying that they've still got delays, but I sent my CBC today and working on all the medical stuff next week, so it feels like things are starting to happen! Congrats to all, excited to meet those of you who'll be at CEC, and soon it'll be time to review for that skills checkoff and try to remember dosage calculation which I completed more than one year ago!

    Thanks jennieanne. I finally got the DVD but I haven't even watched any of the video. Lol. For the most part I remember a lot from my Cna class I just need to tweek it a little. I got my acceptance letter n I also got my hybrid class thank God! I know there was someone who answered this question but I need a little more info.Does any one know exactly how many days a week do u have to take off work for lab/ Clinicals for hybrid? My work is ONLY days which ends at 330pm. After that it is the call team, also on the weekends only call team works. I read somewhere that someone was able to work 3 days a week while in hybrid but I don't know if that person was able to work at night. IM nervous b/C I don't know if I'll have time to work n I can't survive on Jus taking call. So anyone in hybrid can answer this?

    I'm in level 4 hybrid and by the looks of the calendar for this fall it has changed a lot from when I was in level 1. To get a good idea of the schedule, go to the ADN website, click on level 1, then click on hybrid, then click on one of the two courses and there is a calendar for Fall 2012. It shouldn't change too much for ya'lls class next semester.

    Sorry but I can't contain my excitement! Just took my last nursing school exam today!! Made a high enough grade on the final to keep my A in the class and finish the program strong! Don't let anyone tell you that getting an A in nursing school is impossible because it isnt.

    I can't believe it is done. Ya'll are in for a unique, unforgettable journey and I wish you all best wishes in starting your nursing school adventure!

    Side note for anyone reading this thread who are still applying or working on pre-reqs.....while waiting to get in, it would be most wise to start working on any BSN classes that will be needed. There has been talk that ACC will transition to start requiring that all BSN pre-reqs are completed before applying to the ACC program so you can just bridge easily to one of the local ADN-BSN programs right out of school. This might be starting in the next few semesters.

    also, has anyone done the drug screen yet? i'm sort of confused on how it works... we 'pre-register' for the test.. and then what? does it give you a list of places to go? or do we just bring some kind of form to the testing site of our choosing? thanks for any clarification

    Thank you! My work has an academic partnership with UT Arlington so we get a discount. A couple of months ago we had a career fair at ACC and they had UT and Texas A&M come and talk with us about their ADN-BSN programs. Texas A&M has a very affordable all online program....around $7,000 while UT was in the range of $13,000-16,000, and it was mostly on campus as they don't have an online program. You pay for the UT name.

    Hey kind of late on answering your question, but yeah you pre register just so that you can pay for it, really. You should be able to type in your address so they can find the closest office for you. Once paid, they will send you an e-mail (the one you need to bring to the site is a SEPERATE e-mail- so look out for 2 of them). Print it out, take the drug test and then your done. If you need a copy for your records of your results, then you need to e-mail them. Go to precheck and there e-mail would be there. I didn't need my results, but then I kept getting e-mails from the nursing recruiter that only 25% of students are doing this right (they repaid for the background), and so I started to get nervous and requested for one, just in case.

    So we are getting close to starting the program! I'm excited and lazy at the same time. This whole month off of no school was Greaaattt..... I don't want to relearn dosage...ugh. Speaking of this, is the dosage calculations test in the beginning of the program hard? This isn't for ACC but some other nursing program, this girl had to take a dosage test every level, can only pass by a 90 so she can only miss 2, and each level it gets harder. Does ACC do this?

    Yes, you will take a dosage exam before every semester begins. It's how you are allowed to give medications in clinical.

    The dosage exam during the first week or so of level 1 at ACC only covers simple doses for po meds. There were no IV calculations since you can't give IV meds until level 2. It was a ten question exam I believe and you have to make an 80 or above. Most of my class passed on the first try, a few had to retake and they did fine.

    The rest of the semesters will cover po and IV calculations but they aren't tough. You had tougher questions in pharmacology.

    Know your conversions....especially ounces - mL since you will be using this all four semesters when counting I&O's in clinical and on tests.

    Hi,
    I'm starting my pre-req this 2013 spring with anatomy and co-req classes. I'm planning on taking micro, physio and pharmacology over the summer and take HESI so that I can apply for spring 2014. People say it's overwhelming to take micro,physio and pharmacology all at the same time, but I just want to turn in my nursing application as soon as possible and I get bonus points every time I re-apply so that's a plus! I was wondering if HESI is offered in August? and is allowing students to take HESI exam within 6 weeks before the semester ends still available? thank you!
