I decided on UCONN one year accelerated! Yes, I left Noreen a message declining after I got the email reminding me to accept my spot! Relatively sure the waitlist will work into the 30s this year. I had a handful of friends all apply and turn down spots at NVCC!

Good luck at UCONN and CONGRATS!!! Do you mind sharing your GPA/ TEAS? I would really appreciate the Info... xx

Hi everyone!

I came upon this thread and saw some of you were looking for more info regarding clinical scheduling and how to make it work with your employer. I am about to graduate Norwalk's program so I hope I can give you some sort of an idea of how this works. Clinical can be any two days of the week, first semester I believe it is usually Thursday/Friday or Wednesday/Thursday and I believe the time frame first semester is only 6.5 hours so from 7a-1:30p. First semester is a little bit different than the other 3 semesters because you spend one day in lab at the school which is considered "clinical" and one day at your assigned clinical site which may be a nursing home or possibly a hospital. They do suggest you quit your job but since this is highly unrealistic there are many people who have passed through the program with a job and kids at home. This is not easy and the people who did not have to work definitely have had an easier time managing work loads and studying (people aren't lying though that as the semesters progress it only gets tougher). You can definitely pull off working part time when you are not in lecture or clinical so don't be discouraged, you just need to put in a little bit of extra effort and stay up on the weeks lessons and assignments. I may be getting ahead of myself but for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th semester you will have clinical two days a week still but the scheduling is a bit different. Clinical can be morning or evenings Tues/Wed, Wed/Thur, Thur/Fri, or Fri/Sat. Something they did for us in second semester which seemed rare was that they offered clinical on a Saturday for 12 hours so you only had to be in clinical one day a week rather than two days. This was first come first serve based on student interest. I hope this helped a little bit, I know it is all very confusing and overwhelming at times. Congratulations to all of you though and I wish you tons of luck on this journey!

Congrats on graduating. Best of luck for your future plans....:)

Also thanks for the informaton.

I was told today by faculty I wont mention any names at NVCC who said not to bother Noreen in admissions that calling obsessively (I only called twice) and asking for an update on the waitlist could make me seem not stable and she's seen students who were taken off the list. :( so worried about being passed over for some reason. I wonder when people heard that they got in last year. Nursing limbo land is so hard.

I definitely believe it but I can't believe she would do something like that poor students who are already under so much of stress.

Curious anyone know if you are allowed to repeat prerequisite classes that are C+ or higher?

Of course at least for community colleges otherwise no one would get in. It's how you improve your chances of getting in. They take the highest grade earned for that class.
