Hi everyone! I just got my acceptance letter from TTC as we'll however my start date isn't till Spring 2014! That seems like light years away. I'm finishing up Micro and A&P 1 now and all I will have to take next semester is A&P 2. I was really shooting for Fall 2013 admission. Any thoughts on if applying to this Merritt Program and if it will help move my start date up?

@carebear I was in the same boat as you not too long ago. I got accepted for Fall 2013 and was devasted/ and happy cause i was like thats soo far away (got my letter in March) but I did the merit and did not get that, but since I was one of the first people to apply for spring 13'( the website had just switched to Fall13' when i did my app) I got my move up letter in September. So there is still a chance you will get in for Fall, just have hope cause I know I was just like you.

Just checking in! First test next week in 104 and we get to go to our clinical sites! The really good stuff is happening in lab, and even though it IS a LOT of material, it's still exciting and fun! How are y'all doing?

Okay, for all of those future/current RN students that are going to Trident Technical College. I will let you in on a little secret that Trident Tech is not telling you about... I graduated in December 2011. This program is very hard, and about 25% of the original class will graduate on time. The secret is called MAGNET! Currently MUSC, Roper Hospital, St. Francis (currently holds Magnet status), VA hospital are all currently preparing for this. The problem for an ADN is in order for these hospitals to get this status 80% of your nurses have to be a BSN. It took me 6 months to find a job, I have years of hospital experience, and it is not at a hospital. Yes, there are some (very few) ADN new grads that got a job in some of these facilities, but it was because they worked there as a CNA or knew someone. There are MANY cases of ADN grads working as a CNAs in these facilities when they are an RN, waiting on a job to open up (6 months - 1 year), got passed over, and they never got hired! Please be advised go BSN if you live in the Charleston area and are planning to stay, do not waste your time. Too many ADN nurses are not getting jobs and are being passed over for BSN. Trident Tech knows all of this and they are not telling you!

@ rnstudentcharleston, I'm starting the program in the Fall. Any words of advice? Is it really as hard and trying as everyone has stated? Did you get all of your Pre req's out of the way? If so do you only have two classes a semester? I've finished all my prerequisite so all I have are the nursing courses. When can we take the dosage exam? And last question for right now...what classes did you take first semester? What teachers to take or not to take?

@benm93...

Hey, glad to meet someone else who will be attending Trident in the Fall. Did you receive the email that they sent out about taking the drug calculation course this Summer along with Nur 105? I know we can take Nur 104 without passing the dosage exam or taking the class. I don't currently live in SC is if I took those classes in the Summer I would have to quit my job now, find a place there to live and pack up to move there which I wasn't planning on doing until later on in the year. I'm trying to make as much money as I can before I head to school. I'm going to talk to my advisor and see what she recommend. If I do have to make my way to SC earlier to take these classes I will have them out of the way which will leave more room to study for Nur 102 and Nur 104. What classes are you planning to tak?
