Navarro College Nursing 2013
- 0Jan 9, '13 by amac77Is anybody else out there applying to Navarro? The deadline is fast approaching and I'm already a nervious wreck. Last year's students started a thread to support each other during the wait and I have read it so many times. I thought it would be good to start another one for all of us who are already worried sick...hoping and praying that we've done enough to achieve our dream...
- 0Jan 15, '13 by cheyenneoswaltI haven't turned everything in yet. I'm not sure if i trust the postal service either. Have you been to one of the information sessions? I'm going to the one on January 19th. I should have went to one of the earlier ones but I wasn't able to due to a busy schedule. Do you have all of your vaccines and everything? I'm having some issues with the chicken pox vaccine. I had chicken pox when I was a child but I was told that I should just go ahead and get the vaccine anyway because it is cheaper than getting a titer done. It has been way more difficult that I expected because none of the health departments do adult chicken pox vaccines anymore. Walgreens does but they want $145 each...which pretty much ends up costing more than the titer. I'm just worried that the titer might come back too low.
- 0Jan 15, '13 by amac77wow! i paid $40 for the titer at the tarant county health department in arlington. they say they won't do it if you have insurance but they didn't check. i had a mild case of chicken pox when i was 5 and my titer came back positive but it took about a week to get it back. i have everything but the last hep b shot.
i'm going to the info session also. i wasn't going to go to one but i have a few questions that aren't getting answered on the phone. now that it's down to crunch time, i want to corner somebody and find out.
are you applying to the lvn also? i can't decide if i want to or not.
- 0Jan 16, '13 by cheyenneoswaltI got a titer done today at labcorp for $59. It was more than I wanted to pay, but it had to be done. I haven't looked at the lvn application but it might be a good idea. I know that there are a lot of people applying to both programs and bother programs are good so it probably wouldn't hurt.
How well did you do on the TEAS?
- 0Jan 17, '13 by amac77i'm sure your titer will come back positive. i had such a mild case and i was so young and mine was.
I got a 93 on the teas. i'm studying for the accuplacer test since it's been such a long time since i took algebra. i'm going to the info session for lvn on the 24th. if i still can, i'm going to apply. how did you do on the test? do you have an idea of how many points you have?
- 0Jan 17, '13 by cheyenneoswaltI made a 90.5 and I'm not sure how many points I have. I do not have any current medical certifications or anything so I will be lacking all of the points available in those areas, which I am a little worried about. Do you have any idea how many points you have? I need to try to calculate mine.
- 0Jan 17, '13 by amac77I either have 131 or 126. Iím not sure if I will get the 5points for my bachelorís degree because itís a history degree. Initially theysaid I would because Iím a teacher and thatís a ďrelated fieldĒ but I got myteaching certifications after my degree. I have my emt-b certification and I didwell in my science classes...that gives me some extra points. Have you read the thread from the students that gotin last year? People got in with 102 points so unless there have been majorchanges to the point system or this is a really strong applicant poolÖwe shouldboth be okÖhopefully. I still have to take a psychology, nutrition, and theorientation class so I wonít be getting points for those.
Iím kind of afraid that Iím going to go to the info sessionand realize that Iím missing something that I donít have time to fix.Last edit by amac77 on Jan 17, '13 : Reason: incorrect format
