    Did you graduate from the ADN program?

    No, I took all my pre-reqs, except for Anatomy and Physiology 2 and Microbiology there. I ended up transferring due to the 2 year waiting list for clinicals. Are u going to Elkhorn or Kenosha?

    Hi there, I am currently waiting for my acceptance letter into the Kenosha Gateway program. I am so anxious!!! I am actually really happy that they made the requirements harder. I talked to Rich Lenz and he said that there were a lot fewer petitions this time. Im so ready and excited to start clinicals. Have you gone to other schools? I was at uw madison for 2 years, then came to uw parkside to save money and live at home but i didn't get accepted to the parkside program and I have a 3.7 so i don't know what they're looking for. do you work as a cna? I am so excited!!! I heard we get phone calls and letters go out the 24th of August so let's keep our hopes up

    Hello there - I've been on the waiting list for 2 years so I was hoping to get in this semester, I'm not getting any youger and for me that is a big deal!!! I still need to take developmental psych so I will be doing that this semester and yeap... I also work as a patient care tech but only part time -I have 3 kids and an a very supportive husband.
    I am very excited but at the same time very nervous and I know I will be very dissappointed if I don't get in... so I can't wait to find out!!!

    What kind of dept. are you a PCT in, I was a PCT up until this last week? I am now becoming a Nurse Tech in the ER I work at. I will be praying that you get that acceptance letter. Good luck!

    I work in the ccu as a nurse tech and plan to be a student nurse intern in January when i hopefully start clinicals. What semester are you in at GTC? do you like the program so far? Ive floated to the ER a few times too.

    Wha do nurse techs do? Is this like helping in the ER? It sounds very interesting...

    Have any of you received any letters or phone calls? I'm still waiting - I check the mail everyday anxiosly!!!

    Nurse techs work alongside the RN, like a CNA. We do a lot more than i ever thought i would be doing such as taking blood (phlebotomy), charting, and telemetry/heart monitoring work.
    I have also been checking the mail waiting anxiously; no call or letter yet. Good luck to you!!!

    Your job sounds very interesting! You get to learn and do many exciting things. I imagine all that experience will become very helpful when you become a nurse...good for you !
    I still haven't heard anything from Gateway, I wonder how much longer. I was really hoping to have something by now. Keep waiting...
