Anyone attend North Hennepin in Minnesota?

  1. Hi, I am starting the ADN program at North Hennepin Community College in Minnesota next month. I was wondering if anyone here is in the same program, I am really nervous about it. The staff I have met do not seem very nice, and they assigned me a clinical spot that is almost 2 hours away from where I live.

    I am starting nursing classes at Inver Hills next month. I don't where my clinical spot will be, although I have heard that they try to get it close to where you live. The instructors here seem really nice.

    I don't know anything about North Hennepin, but hopefully it will get better once you are in the program. Have you talked with anyone who is currently in the nursing program to see what they have to say about it?

    Good luck in your classes!

    Good luck!

    Congrats on getting in - are you day or night student? I'm in the night program at NHCC, starting next month. Don't sweat the instructors - they really don't warm up to first year students from what I've heard - guess because first year they don't know who's going to survive and who's going to wash out... Relax, study, enjoy... You made it in where many haven't.

    I don't know about NHCC either, but it's nice to read messages from other Minnesotans! I'm applying to Inver Hills.

    I grew up in MN and would have gone to St. Mary's or the U if I still lived there. Miss it!

    I'm always happy to see other Minnesotans as well!

    hey dcs! I am also in the night program. Where did they assign you for clinical? They assigned me to St. Cloud!

    Hello Fellow Minnesotans!! I go to St. Ben's/St. John's. Anna's mom, you don't seem very excited to be in St. Cloud, I'm sorry to hear that's not what you wanted.

    LOL, sorry, Giggles, I have nothing against St. Cloud, it's just that it's about 1 1/2 hours from where I live! I live in Blaine.

    Won't know until next week - My orientation is on 7/23. I was wait listed until 5 weeks ago. Let me know just in time to take A&P II, my last Bio course. Luckily, there is a lady in my class also in the night course who had her packet with her and I saw that I have to get my CPR done and that the last day for it is this weekend at NHCC. I wouldn't have known this in time if it wasn't for her. You would think the school would let me know that little fact! Oh, well - there goes another weekend...

    Dave, I guess I'll see you on Saturday, because I am taking that same CPR course. How cool to meet someone from here in person!

    I'm also attending NHCC this fall, I'm in the day program. Does anyone know anything about their program. I moved to MN from Fl only 3 months ago and I don't know anything about school around here. The closest one to where I live require you to be a nursing assistant first. And I'm also taking that math class online. This is my first time posting. I want to say hello to everyone.

    Liline, for NHCC, you don't need to be a NA first. Did you go to an orientation yet? What do you want to know?
