    Thank you so much! I will go ahead and get started on the immunizations since the Hep B takes 6 months. Once we apply for the nursing program, I hope they have people to help us through the next steps so we know what to expect.

    Yup...Hep B takes a while. I started last Nov so my last set should be in May...just in time for the application window.

    ratemyprofessor.com is an AWESOME website. I too use that when planning my classes. So far it seems to work out. I'm loving my profs this semester...they make the course seem so easy...but then again we are in the 2nd week of the semester so I guess I'll see how it goes.

    Does anyone know if we can register for the HESI now?...I know you can take it 6 weeks before the semester ends when completing your pre-reqs. I just didn't want the date and location that I wanted to be full.

    Wishing everyone the best of luck this semester!

    You can email and ask. That is what I did. I was taking my last pre-req, physiology, in fall 2009 and the last HESI date of that year was December 18th. I emailed in October and stated my situation and that I was in my last pre-req and wanted to turn in my nursing app as soon as the app period opened and they let me sign up for it.

    Thanks RADIATIONRN2BE!

    I will definitely ask the nursing department.

    How's nursing school so far? I'm considering doing the hybrid program as well but I still have lots of time to decide.

    I'm wishing you the Best of Luck this semester...and all of the semesters in nursing school!

    It's going good. Definitely stressful. Like it has been said on here before, it isn't super hard material, it is just A LOT of it. We had our first clinical day today which was just an orientation to the hospital so it went quickly. Hybrid is awesome!! The instructors are excellent and really are there to help you succeed. Since beginning classes last week I have spent about 4 hours a night studying and reviewing the material and watching the videos on the ADN website. We have our first mastery checkoff over physical assessment tomorrow afternoon. It is hard to believe I am finally a nursing student after spending the last two years doing pre and co-reqs. I never thought this day would come. If ya'll have any questions I can do my best to help out. I remember turning to this forum when I was starting pre-reqs and I always appreciated any info from someone who actually went through the program.

    I am also down to my last year of co's and pre's. I never thought this day would come that I could say, "At the end of this year I will apply to nursing school." It been a long road. This year will definitely be the toughest. I am taking Microbiology with my elective this term and in the fall will take Pharmacology and Physiology. I got my CNA last summer and have an interview at St. David's next friday for a CNA position. I really hope I get it. I hear the best nurses are those who started from the bottom up. I want ever advantage I can get before entering nursing school.

    I wish everyone the best..... Keep moving forward and never give up

    Hello all, I'm hoping that one of you out there has taken our favorite Micro teacher at ACC Cypress Creek and have some of his old tests - he said he did not mind us using old test for study. I think this would help me alot.
    If you do - please email me and let me know how I can arrange pick up. Any help in the bea-man class would be great.
    Thanks!

    Anna,
    Thanks for your email. I've tried emailing you but the email address I have does not work. I would love to meet up with you at school. When do you have micro? Please email me again.
    Thanks!
