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!!!
hmm...i have all the pre-reqs done but was thinking about taking oral communications in the fall. have you taken it? Im also a pca at st. cat's. where do you work? I know what you mean about the time thing...ive been in prenursing for 3 years and so ready to start clinicals.
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.
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...
