    When I said HCA Methodist I was referring to the two HCA (Plaza and Plano) hospitals and the Mansfield Methodist. I forgot to put a / in between the two names.

    I know we've been through this before, but does anyone else feel almost life their life is "on hold" right now? When people ask what I'm doing now, I'm tired of telling them that "I'm waiting to hear about nursing school" because I feel like that's been my response for so long now. Ugh, I just don't have patience and I know that's not good. Guess I'm just feeling down about the whole "waiting" thing.

    lharvick - Do you by chance know how many spots they had for Methodist Mansfield? Just wondering as I know that hospital continues to grow and expand. Thanks!

    It is 10 for every hospital is the way I understood it from the meeting unless you were in combination with a children's hospital then together they would have 10 spots. (Ex: JPS and Cook's Children only have 10 spots available combined).

    @all4faith: The clinicals are usually Fri/Sat, Sat/Sun, or Sun/Mon (mostly Sat/Sun, though)....I have a couple of friends in the program now and I don't think there is a break for spring break, necessarily....they do get some breaks from clinicals between "semesters" or before the start of new classes, but not sure that it would fall on Spring break.

    I hope this helps!
    Thanks!!

    MelTex2012 I know EXACTLY how you feel - you are absolutely not alone - it's gut wrenching to know that you have worked so hard (grade average was NOT an issue for me) and yet you were told to "wait" - it's so hard - I read posts from some people who are getting in after applying 2-3 times - I am done with all required courses and am just "waiting" - so yes my life is also on hold and it is quite disconcerting. What to do from here - do you start something else only to have to stop that if you get "the call" - do you throw in the towel and say I'm moving on and if I get "the call" I won't answer it - it's so hard ~ I honesly don't know that "wait list" is a good thing in some ways. Holding patterns are not necessarily a good or sane thing. Sorry to sound disheartened, but I am

    So who all turned in their waitlisted acceptance letter? Has anyone talk to their counselor these last couple of weeks about when calls from the waitlist will start?

    I turned mine in within a couple days of being notified... I haven't had any communications with my counselor... I've never had much luck with that endeavor... ever...

    Hello,

    I'm new to the thread...just found it this evening when I was looking for some information that I couldn't get from my advisors about upcoming schedules etc. If there is a "spreadsheet" of sorts in google docs can you please send it to me as well. I would like to have contact with other students for the Spring 2013 On Campus Program. My email is ashleyallisonfields@gmail.com. Look forward to meeting everyone at orientation, and I WISH I had found this thread six months ago...it would have been so helpful!

    I got into the On-Campus program with a 3.81 GPA/4.0 Science with no considerations and no parternships. I was wait-listed for the Academic Partnership program. I accepted the on-campus program because like many other students I was only able to apply to one program due to location, work, etc. I just received my update on MyMAV blackboard regarding all our required deadlines before orientation etc, and I got a copy of what our schedules are "supposed" to look like and I had a few questions. I was hoping someone might know an existing student that is in the on-campus program that could shed some light on the scheduled days that just states "[COLOR=#000000]Smart Hospital will be providing times for skillspractice." I'm hoping these are really only "practice" days because the schedule shows we're in class almost a full day two days and in clinical one full day/or in lab. I'm relocating to the metroplex for school/work and before I find an apartment, it would be nice to know how many days a week i'm going to have to drive to campus. I have an office across from Northpark mall downtown and one in Plano, so I need to be pretty central or find a good mid-point between work and school. If anyone lives in the Las Colinas/Irving/Valley Ranch area that has some good leads on nice but affordable apartments i'm planning on going up this weekend to start looking and I would LOVE any suggestions. Working full-time and going to school full-time hasn't exactly left much free time to apartment hunt online.

    Again I look forward to getting to know everyone a little better and hopefully meeting some of you soon
