    New Question for current nursing students:

    Classes are monday-thursday 8:30-2:30 right?
    Do we get a lunch?
    Also, the semester ends in May for regular students, do we follow the same schedule? As in, we will get a little time off after the Spring semester ends and the Summer semester begins?

    Oh, big question here, do we HAVE to wear the Dove brand uniform pants from Barnes and Noble or can we get any white pants from a uniform shop?

    Thanks a bunch

    Is it hard to get into tcc nursing program? I'm retaking A&P because the first time I made an F in it ( personal issues). I should end up with either an A or a high B this time. The rest of my classes I made As in and I will be taking A&P 2 next semester. Any suggestions

    Just do your best and apply with all of your ducks in a row. Study for the Hesi A2 exam...Math, Chem, especially.

    Ask TCC for an academic renewal on that F, and they will strike it from your GPA.

    Good luck

    Yes you will get a half hour lunch break.

    Yes, you will have about 2 weeks between spring and summer semester. It follows the same start dates as everyone else.

    It would be better for you to get the dove pants. If you don't you run the risk of your pants not looking the same as everyone else's and then you might not be let into clinical.

    just graduated. yes you need stethoscope, buy one within your budget. Buy white sneakers cheap but with no colors/Nike swoosh etc. Buy dove clothes from their website, and books online and you will save a lot. Don't buy anything unless they tell you it is acceptable or needed. Semesters are 16 weeks, nursing classes are 8 weeks so you will take 2 classes back to back a semester and then take regular breaks for TCC after each semester. You need a second hand watch not digital. Make friends/study partners asap and work as a team and you'll do fine. Most people keep their books for reference. You register for classes like any other student but if you are in a cohort a spot in a class is reserved for you and their is no worry or need for early registration, just by the regular deadline. Program is excellent and has an excellent first time pass rate on NCLEX. Everyone from my class I spoke with has passed NCLEX with minimum 75 out of possible 265 questions. Spring break is same for you as any other TCC student. Don't believe what you read on rate your professor etc. They are all teachers who help those who want to succeed and are willing to work for it. Good luck

    dnadeau, you had to turn in your intent to attend the school already. The rest you have to do on it's own timeline listed on the admission checklist.

    The nursing orientation is Nov. 29th

    The medical form needs to be completed within "6 months PRIOR to admission" into the course, so that really means hurry up because we don't have 6 months. ASAP!

    Everything else needs to be completed beforehand.
