Yes i understand. Nursing school wasnt the easiest the first time around n all my classes were in person. But this time around i have more kids n my life is busier. But we'll see. Are you applying to other schools? I planned on applying to El centro but heard they werent accepting any students at this time.

I definitely understand. It sure wasn't easy the first time! I applied to weatherford but didn't get in because they didn't accept my one psych class because it was an exam based and I didn't want to retake it until I see if I can get into TCC. I'm sorry to hear about el Centro. TCC is more convient anyway so I'm really hoping/praying it works out. I'm so glad the real countdown has started. Hopefully these next few weeks will fly by for all of us. I did see on a previous forum that it looked like the fast track got their emails a week before the reg track. I'm not getting my hopes up too much that we will find out early but it would be nice because we only have a month before we would start verses the 3 months the reg track has to prepare and make plans. I want to take my daughter on a trip before nursing school would start but can't plan anything yet until we know. Can't wait to find out!

I am not sure what my odds are. I am pretty nervous about it. I spent one year and $30,000 at Chamberlain College of Nursing which turned out to be a gimmick and not a school I would ever recommend anyone attend. So I am taking my chances at getting in the ADN program at TCC. I am a little worried as my science grades are--> A&P 1 "C", A&P 2 "C", and Micro "B" and an 87 overall on the HESIThe reason I did not do so well in my A&P classes is because my professor was out both semesters with newly diagnosed cancer. So all we did was powerpoints and take home test which where not easy at all. I have been in school for 6 years now and I am just getting overwhelmed and over this process.

I would try and take Ap1 and Ap2 over. Tcc is based mostly off those 3 science classes and Hesi. I completely understand your frustration of being in school forever. Ive had to take a few classes over to atleast be competitive. But dnt give up..apply anyway u never know. Good luck.

I would also recommend retaking your A&p's. I got a C in my first round of a&p after an awful professor. I learned that ratemyprofessor is your bff. I retook it in the summer with stacy Vasquez who was awesome and I highly recommend!! Then I took micro the second summer session as well and a&p2 in the fall and took a professor that was really recommended and pulled off an A...barely.

I took Stacy also this past summer and he is awesome!

I totally feel you on being frustrated with nursing schools and the whole process @kortneymccoy because I too had a similar experience with wasting time at a school that I ended up realizing was not where I wanted to get my degree from. Have you looked in weatherford? They do a point system and I work with a girl that had a C in her science course and got in. As long as you have enough points, it won't matter so much the C. They take the TEAS so you'd have to take that instead of the HESI but I'd recommend going onto their website and adding up your classes and seeing how many points you have and if it seems realistic for you that you have between 26-30 points with whatever TEAS score you think you can get I'd apply to them this summer for their spring start if you don't get into TCC because it may save you from having to do your sciences over. Just another option. Keep your head up and don't give up!

I'm taking history and gov online this semester. Thinking of signing up for the second of both of those for the summer.

How is history online? I'm also taking history but I'm going to class and it's so interesting! We don't use a book at all and just take notes from lecture. I don't have to know dates, don't have to write papers and the final is not comprehensive, so I'm happy! Is govt pretty easy? I signed up for both govt classes over summer.

Oh you got a good class! I'm actually surprised that I'm finding these two courses interesting as well! Both my classes online are pretty easy. There is some reading from the book in history but my gov class I don't need a book. There are readings posted for each unit with videos and other links. We have 2 debates we have to write in gov. Only writing in history is on each test but it's a small portion of the test. I think there's 3 or 4 tests and a bunch of quizzes, about 1 weekly. I really enjoyed doing these online since I just got done doing the 2 science courses with labs the last semester on campus. It made for a nice break from a set schedule. I would def reccommend taking classes like this online. I'm going to take my summer courses online. I'm not sure if I'd take a literature class online or statistics since I'm bad in math. But definitely the history and gov can be taken online easily.
