Hi all! It's getting to be that time again. Where we eagerly wait for a reply from the nursing school. I read on the official SAC Nursing page on Facebook that we should be notified no later than... Read More

    Hi I was accepted into the program for spring.
    I finally decided to go with the program and now my links from the original email are gone! The generic BSN packet, and the BON fastpass. Does anyone know where the school has them located on the new nursing website?
    I have my immunizations and I did the backround check for another school I jsut want to make sure I have everything in order. I apreciate the help

    Congratulations to everyone that got in! I just finished my first flex in the program and it was a bit crazy so I thought I would give you all some advice! Read before class starts and make notes on everything! All the little boxes in the chapter count! Find a good study group and put it to use trust me you will be each others sanity! Finally don't forget to have a little fun. After our final a bunch of us went to Luther's across the street and had a beer to celebrate getting through the first class! Get ready for a whole new world!
    Hi Noelle, congrats on getting through the first flex!
    I have a question is it possible to work full time with and attend this program? What is the class schedule like?

    Hi everyone!

    I was waitlisted but got accepted into the nursing program, too, but for the Flex II semester. Is anyone else starting then, too?

    I have a bunch of stuff I need to get together. Just saw the email at work today and let out a little scream of joy. Good thing I was alone I have most of my shots done, just last shot of Hep B, CPR, Background and Drug left.

    Hi schmoodle, I switched to flex II since I am trying to relocate...I have my hands fulls without adding school to the mix too! I am going next week to do my drug test and then drop off my packet...I will be so glad to be done and have all this stuff finished. Am a little nervous, since I dont even know my way around San Antonio, but excited too!

    I just finished reading this entire thread. I'm really looking forward to orientation. I'm trying not to allow myself to get too excited until everything's done and I've turned in my packet.

    I skimmed through previous threads for SAC nursing in different semesters and noticed the blue background check card takes a while to be sent to you. Did you guys receive the card relatively quickly in the mail? I hope that doesn't become a problem for me... I have to turn everything in before Dec 1st.

    I received the background card in about 3 weeks...maybe a few days less. It was pretty scary for awhile- My son gets the mail and sometimes throws away important stuff because it's stuck in the ad section.

    I was also moved to Flex I, at my request, so that I can possibly work as a CNA this summer- and get this schooling thing finished!

    Good luck to everyone and congrats on acceptance!

    Hi, I did my backround check for another school, but it was the same process and it took a little under 3 weeks, but make the appointment fast! I ended uo having to drive a few hours away because I waited until the last minute to schedule it.
    I was admitted to the flex 1 program and I am really excited! Anyone else starting in January? Does anyone know if this program can be completed in under 2 years?

    I scheduled mine as soon as I got the email but couldn't get an appt anywhere until the 8th. I really hope that's enough time. I think I might be barely making it before the Dec 1st.

    I do have friends that are working full time but it is very hard for them.. as for the schedule I go at night so I am there M Tues 4-8 Tuesday night I have to go to the hospital and pick my patient and get all of their info (takes a couple of hours) then go home and make their careplan (also a couple of hours) then wed thursday I am at clinical from 4- 9. Now you won't have to go to the hospital on Tuesdays until you get into Commons but you should be studying a lot for foundations.. So if you have to work full time I know it is doable but if you can afford not to I would say try going part time! Hope that helps!!

    Hi thanks for the response Noelle, yes unfortunantly I will have to work. I work Tues - Friday full time so it will be difficult. The student guide says we cannot mix day and night classes but it this a definite rule?
    This thread has been really quiet lately! Where is everyone? : )

    hey, who is starting flex ii with me? getting ready to move to san antonio in a few weeks and want to make some friends also, if i read correctly, we need to go to the campus on 1/5 to register for our classes and that we will be assigned classes at that time (had a moment of panic when i saw that classes are already full.) was also wondering, for flex ii how do we catch up on classes, or do we have to wait a semester to graduate???

    Instead of January 5th it is now December 12th from 8 to 12.

    I have my Course Numbers ready and waiting to register and get this show on the road!
