    Good Luck you guys! FYI, check your irsc e-mail. We were told the letters would come traditional postal service ... then got suprised with e-mail notifications a couple of weeks early.

    i missed the last information session, because i accidentally marked down the 4th thursday instead of 3rd :/

    ive got everything else i needed done, i even turned in my paramedic license. i know its mandatory, has anyone been rejected for missing it ? or does anyone know whether i can attend the next session even though its after the application deadline and have it still count for the same semester ??

    i really hope this doesn't ruin my chances i feel like im already a competitive applicant

    I STRONGLY suggest that you call or e-mail the nursing dept. We were told if you miss it you have to re-apply next semester.
    The sooner the better. Good Luck!

    thanks for the advice, thank gawd i emailed "you know who" and she responded attending the next session will be ok. im guessing since everything is so new and changed around with the dates and deadlines theyre decided to be a little lenient with applications this time around or something. i dont know and i dont care, im just glad to still be in the running

    Another random question for you, PDowling, since you're already in the program. I have a half sleeve tattoo...I'm sure there's a "no visible tattoos" clause in the you know if I'm going to be allowed to wear an undershirt in order to cover it?

    @pdowling Are you able to work while in the program?
  11. by   PDowling
    @efryauff Yes, they allow a long sleeve white undershirt. .... and you are right, they don't want to see tattoos.

    @Allison1993 Well, I am currently working 12 hour shifts on Sat and Sun. It's making it a LOT harder to get everything done. However, I have no choice ... bills have to get paid, and I am paying for school out of pocket right now. If there is any possible way to limit your work thats what I would do. But most of my class does work part time ... so it's do-able.

    PS Sorry about posting the faculty names - I didnt realize that!

    Ugh! Has anyone heard anything yet? I applied also but I did pretty bad on the NLN. I got a score of 105. My total points are 128. :C Do I have any chances of getting in? Unfortunately I have all of the old pre-reqs done! AP 1 & 2, Micro, Stats, Nutrition, and Chem. I also have my AA degree and CNA license.

    I haven't heard anything yet either...! The waiting is killing me! I have everything else done as well and only need the core classes. I am guessing we should hear by sometime next week...hopefully.

    Good Luck!
