Hi fellow hybrid peeps. I chose hybrid as well. Have you guys done PreCheck already and signed up for/taken a CPR class? I haven't decided where I should take it.

Thanks Austin404! It's always nice to hear from someone who's been there. As for the mastery checkoff based on our nursing skills course that occurs in the beginning of nursing school, do you remember when you did it? The first day/week of seminar? Lab? Clinical? How long was it? We're having 30 minute scenarios in class right now, and I was wondering if that was what the checkoff would be like. I can't imagine they could throw in everything but the kitchen sink, it would probably take too long, but what do I know?

Rent your level 3 books unless you plan to be in OB...definitely buy the Lewis book, though.

Sungal,

I did the CPR training at Life Sustaining Training (north Austin), and REALLY enjoyed it. Check them out on Yelp, great reviews.

Who else is in CEC? :)

Do any newly minted, incoming Level 1's need practice on 1105 Mastery Skills for checkoff? If so, please contact me! Friday/ Saturday mornings are best. Message me here. Thanks. Colleen

hello everyone!

Just found out that I might be getting in to the Fall 2013 semester after all and wanted to ask if anyone

has any information or experiences to share regarding the different campuses at ACC. There are still

slots available at the CEC and Eastview. As I live in central austin both of these are geographically desirable

so that doesn't help my decision-making process. Any insight into which one is preferable? Thanks in advance

for your response!

Congrats, superfuzz!

Both of the campuses are good. Some of my friends are a semester ahead of me at CEC and they really love it, I hear no bad things about it at all. But I also haven't heard anything bad about Eastview.

I'm about to start level 3 at CEC and I LOVE it. I have a friend in Level 4 at EVC and she has had a lot of issues with the way the lectures run and how test questions are set up. CEC is a really unique experience in that you are learning in a hospital environment and get to mingle with other nursing students and even medical students from time to time. We have our own labs which are much more laid back than EVCs labs. The library is huge and has a great selection of nursing related books. There is also no printing limit :) The teachers are incredible and I have had no issues with testing as long as I study the material given in class. I would suggest giving the CEC a try as it's a great and unique learning environment. I feel very lucky to be there :) Good luck.

Hello Everybody,

I am new here, ready to put my first application in for Spring 2014. Anybody know what was the cutoff numbers for Fall 2013, seems like it is above 60 now. I am planning to take my BSN pre-requisites when I am waiting for the admission. Good luck to everybody, seems like I will be here for 2-3 semesters waiting, lol.

I don't know what the cutoff was, but I was accepted with 55.1 points (my first time applying) when the second round of acceptance letters went out. I guess a lot of people declined or didn't pass the background check because I was ranked 176 out of 406 applicants, and they originally offered places to 117 students. This just goes to show that you never know what will happen! Good luck!

Hybrid Level One's: Meet this Friday 8/16 btwn 10-1 at RR Open Lab to review 1105 mastery skills! I don't know about anyone else, but I could use the practice. Does anyone know how much information will be on the check-off? Is it like the final check-off from Skills? Anyone?
