Congrats on your acceptance into the program!
Can I ask what you applied with (GPA, TEAS test score, classes completed, county, etc.). I'm just curious as to what they look at when they accept an applicant as I applied with a 4.0 GPA. Also, did they give you a deadline for you to let them know you accept their offer of admission?
I appreciate your post about the Fauquier Campus and I tried to investigate further on the VA Board of Nursing website. I found an agenda on Education Information Conference Committee dated January 18, 2012 that references the following:
Repeat Initial Approval Survey Visit
Lord Fairfax Community College, Fauquier Campus - Associate Degree Nursing Education Program, Warrenton
: Recommend placing the program on conditional approval and withdraw the authority to admit students
until such time the Program Director submits the following:
1. Evidence that current students will obtain the required amount of mental health clinical hours as evidenced by signed clinical contracts, dates and time of each clinical experience and where each student is assigned;
2. Plan of action that addresses how the previous graduates who have not passed the NCLEX-RN exam will obtain the required mental health clinical experiences beyond the long term care experience;
3. Evidence that there is a sufficient number of faculty to prepare the students to achieve the objectives of the program;
4. Provide a completed preceptor packet to include the performance of skills for which the student has had faculty supervised clinical and didactic preparation [18VAC90-20-95.D.3.];
In addition, a Board representative will conduct a site visit to verify compliance with the mental health clinical experiences.
