I applied to Lone Star - ADN program Spring 2012. I was accepted as an alternate. I am hoping to get a call from the nursing department saying there is a spot for me. If not I will be reapplying for the next application period... Read More

    What are blue cards?

    I believe they have something to do with background checks.

    Forget what I said about Mont. County and a $45 fee for CPR. I just brought up the actual form after talking to someone there, and they, too, want $65. Think I will wait for orientation to see if there is anything cheaper.

    Also, if any of you up this way are going to get your finger prints done, the place is off of N. 336 Loop (east). Go over the bridge and past the Pepsi plant. It will be down a little ways on your left. I had to call them on my way there yesterday, because I didn't know that the numbers descend and then start going back up again on that road (as well as odd and even switching sides!)

    Blue cards is a card that you will recieve in the mail from the BON (board of nursing) showing that you passed the federal background check. You should bring this card with you to orientation.

    @ Julienizon A blue card is a statement from the BON printed blue card stock about the size of a post card or larger size index card saying that your background check is clear. You have to watch carefully for this card to come in the mail so you do not miss it or accidently throw it away with those rediculous weekly circulars that fill up your mail box.

    Still waiting here! Hoping to get some kind of confirmation either way soon to put my mind at ease.

    I know that I at least made it in to Tomball, but I still want my darn letters! I guess they will be coming with news of UTHSC acceptance or rejection, though I really don't think I made it. Hoping that this early start program I'm hearing so much about makes it easier to get a BSN done. Also wanted to comment on how much I love you all! I think it's wonderful that we're technically in competition with each other and yet everyone is being so supportive. All of you will make awesome nurses!

    If you don't get a letter to Tomball pretty soon that's a good sign! That probably made it into NH, too! Or Cyfair. But I'm sure NH. Here's hoping for UT...did you interview there or are you waiting to hear about that part? I didn't even finish my application to UT or TWU...I was planning on just using Moco as a backup, but I realized I live way too far from the med center to sign myself up to drive there every day. If I was single and childless, maybe, but I think I'm better off taking a little longer in school in exchange for more convenience. Anyway, I'm sure you'll hear from NH next week and you'll have some good news to share, and good luck with UT! I was really happy to hear about the early acceptance program....before they had it at Lonestar I was really annoyed at the way the timing would have to work...there was no way to graduate, take the NCLEX and apply by the deadline for the next semester, but I didnt want to wait to finish. So yay!

    I'm hoping it means I got into NH! Gas prices the way they are...if I had to go to Tomball, I'd have to see if they had a park and ride. UT didn't have interviews this application period, which kind of depressed me. My grades arent SUPER stellar like some of the other applicants, but I excell at interviews. Oh well! UT is pretty darn far from me as well, but I don't have offspring to contend with. It's got to be hard being a parent and a student, I can't even imagine! It's wonderful you got into Moco! Life just got a little bit easier and a little bit more challenging all at once. Congrats!!!
