Hi everyone! I was just wondering were there any others who were applying for Spring 2013. I was in nursing school many moons ago (2003 el centro), and have decided to take care of unfinished business. I'm super excited about... Read More

    Hi everyone,
    I submitted my application packet yesterday with 25 points. I hope it will be enough points. So hopefully by hearing from others we can all get a sense of the point range(s). I wish everyone the best of luck in applying for this program. I was a little bummed that they changed the point system because I would have had 17 on the old system and felt confident with that number.

    Hello everyone, I am a newbie. I am anxious just like the rest of you. I am praying that we all get an acceptance letter to at least one of the schools that we have applied for.

    Hello everyone!
    I've been stalking the board for a while now and just thought I'd leave a comment.
    I will be applying for spring 2013 with 21 points due to the last minute changes. I'm hoping to get in, but if I don't then I plan on getting in at TCC since I'll have a 4.0 and I got a 96 on my hesi! Good Luck to everyone! I hope it goes well!

    Hey Maunakea!

    I'm applying with 25 points also. I would have had 17 with the old way also! Hopefully, our numbers will be good enough this time. Have you applied before or are you applying anywhere else?

    Hi Kellikelli,

    This is my first time applying and I will also be applying to the Methodist/El Centro nursing program. This program is open to employees, their family members and volunteers. I volunteer at the Dallas hospital. They only accept I think 20 students, so it can be even more competitive than the traditional El Centro. I do not know how many people will be apply for the Methodist program so I will wait to see what the decision is for the traditional. With the Methodist program you stay within the Methodist health system, (except for psych and peds) they pay your tuition but you have to work for them for 2 years after.

    I also really have an interest in working at Parkland because it is a teaching hospital. I hope that you will get into the program.

    hello,
    I am a student looking forward to being accepted into El Centro Spring 2013 program. I have submitted my application with 24 points. I am a bit on the edge if I will be accepted. After seeing other posts with points higher than mine it makes me a bit uneasy, but I wish everyone the best of luck.

    Any suggestions on what insurance is affordable and worth something just to get me by for this program? I currently have United Health Care but for the cost it seems to cover nothing.

    Maunakea- I just got into the student volunteer program at Methodist- orientation was last week and my placement meeting is tomorrow. Any advice on which areas of the hospital I would or would not want? I'm also curious- so they have to hire you after graduation? Or you have to accept any position you're offered? Do you know how that works?

    Hi RNNelson79,

    I am not sure if you are able to pick the area you would like to volunteer. I was given my location based on what they needed filled.

    They do hire you after graduation. You are obligated to work for them for 2 years or pay them back since they paid your tuition. I do not know how accepting a position offered works.

    If I am accepted and do decide to go thru the Methodist/El Centro program I can give you more information.

    Thanks!
