Navarro ADN-RN program Fall 2012 - Page 27Register Today!
- Jun 15, '12 by RED1984Kryssal, Fridays aren't on the schedule.... So I'm hoping we are "off" considering its only an 8 credit semester, I'm gonna assume that it's only a 4 day week
- Jun 15, '12 by RaeAnn04Adb yes I'll be working but, I do hair so I make my own schedule. I will just work when I can. And I'll probably take nutrition this summer, hopefully I can still get a spot. Thanks for the info. Also, i have heard we r off Fridays.
Also y'all were talking about scubs, there is a big scrub shop at parkland and got mine there.
- Jun 18, '12 by mrskennedyHello everyone! I've been on allnurses.com since I decided that I was going to apply to nursing school and I've spent the last 30 minutes reading through this particular post (all 27 pages!) It was as if I was reading a mystery novel hoping that you would all get accepted. By the way, congratulations!
I applied like all of you for this Fall 2012 class, which I had worked so hard for over the past couple of years maintaining a 3.8GPA, I've finished all of my core classes and all that I have left are nursing, with a child and husband to take care of. Sadly, I was put on the active alternate list. I was heart broken when I got the e-mail after hearing from my A&P girlfriends that they had been accepted. We were all sure we would get in and even planned to carpool to Corsicana/Waxahachie in the Fall (we attend the Mexia campus.)
Anyway, onto my actual reason for commenting (other than to say hello and congratulations) I called last Friday on the 15th just to ask if I would have to go through the whole process all over again when applying next time. While she (the older one) was talking to me she asked me my name so that she could look up my file. She then said she couldn't find it (I was in full panic mode now) and placed me on hold. When she came back she said the most amazing words "How would you like to be IN the program this Fall? We have 8 spots open and you're 3rd on the list." I nearly passed out from my excitement and said "ABSOLUTELY!" I'm awaiting the e-mail, which she said would be coming in the next few days. So, it still hasn't sunk in and will not be official until I receive it but I am beyond excited. She said the only way it wouldn't work out is if something very unfortunate were to happen to one of the instructors, which is not very likely. Now, I'm playing the waiting game AGAIN and have been furiously checking my e-mail hoping that it will be there.
I am keeping my hopes up since I asked her over and over again if she was sure I was in. She also told me to wait to do CPR because they may have someone at the school that will do it for free. So, maybe we will all run into each other at the orientation in August. Congratulations again everyone!
- Jun 18, '12 by timmedicoHi mrskennedy!!!! Congrats to you as well!!!!!! Getting into nursing school is one of the best moments of our lives, and the journey is just only beginning!
If you need any help with anything, just let us know (I check the site many times a day for updates). When you get that acceptance email, there are 14 attachments (9 documents, 3 pdf's, 1 excel, and the "Congrats" flashy picture .gif). The books are definitely cheaper on Amazon and they arrive really quickly. Also, if you need any shots there's a few options out there that are free (Baylor is one of them). You might contact one of the nurses in charge of the program (can't use names) to set up the drug screen payment thing (it is online and temporary, so they have to bring it up again if it's not still there).
Again, congrats!!!!!! I hope we all meet at orientation!
- Jun 18, '12 by RED1984HI MRSKENNEDY!! Reading your post gave me chills.. like a mini mystery/drama novel- first i was like then !!! I'm SO HAPPY that you got in I can't wait for August 1st to roll around <<Orientation Day>> YAYAYAY
Anyways, I just wanted to say hello and CONGRATS!!
OH- if you're checking your email via your phone, make sure to check it on the computer too!! I was checking mine on my "smartphone" (iPhone) and it never came through because of the huge attachments.......Last edit by RED1984 on Jun 18, '12 : Reason: Adding info :)
- Jun 18, '12 by mrskennedyTimmedico - Thanks so much for replying, it's wonderful seeing how encouraging everyone is. Thanks for letting me know just how much I will have to fill out/read in the e-mail. I've already updated all of my shots and just have to do the TB skin test and the drug screening. I usually buy my books online since they are always so much cheaper, can you tell me how many books there are in total for the first semester?
Red1984 - Thank you so much! When I got off the phone and told my husband, I couldn't keep from crying. I know they have to have a way to weed through the tons of applications they get, but I felt like I worked so incredibly hard and it almost slipped through my fingers. I have never been so excited to go to school and I'm sure I'll be laughing at myself later when I'm physically and mentally exhausted from all the work. Thanks for the heads up, I do check my e-mail on my phone but I check the computer as well just in case. Crossing my fingers I'll have mail tomorrow!
Also, I have a question for anyone who might be able to answer it - I see that most have finished all of the basic classes and the only thing left will be nursing classes, which is what I've done as well since I knew I would need to focus all of my attention to just nursing. On WebAdvisor the program evaluation adds in those basic classes so since we've taken those, does this shorten how long it will take us to graduate? That may be a stupid question, I just didn't know how that worked.
- Jun 18, '12 by timmedicoThere are 13 total books that are listed (however, the NCLEX review is optional). If you'd like to know the book names/isbn # and such I can give you that information as well (although I can't PM it here unless you've posted like 15 times on allnurses).
I can answer your question. Unfortunately, we cannot finish any faster than 2 years. The program is staggered in such a way that we must take certain nursing classes before others (for instance, we have fundamentals of nursing and pharmacology a semester before Common Health Care Needs...we have to know the basics first). It's not a stupid question at all! I asked the same thing and hoped for it, but it's a 2 year program no matter what. But having the other classes out of the way is gonna help a lot! Won't have to worry about anything but Nursing exclusively, and I think that'll make us better nurses.
I'm hoping you get that email tomorrow too!!!!!
- Jun 19, '12 by kryssal5Congratultions Mrs. Kennedy!!! I bet it was a shock to find out the way you did!
- Jun 19, '12 by mrskennedyI got the e-mail today (and all 13 attachments!) This makes it so much more real. I had my TB skin test and my last hepatitis shot done today as well. Now, I just have to get my books, scrubs, CPR class, and probably a million other things as well. I'm opening up all the attachments right now, but I just wanted to let you guys know I'm officially in! Can't wait to meet everyone!
- Jun 19, '12 by RED1984Woop woop!!! congrats again mrskennedy!!!
