Joliet Junior College (JJC) Fall 2021

Posted

Anyone applying to JJC for Fall 2021? What was your TEAS score, how is your application looking, are you excited?!

I got an 82% on the TEAS VI and am finishing up retaking pre-req’s as I have a few C’s and old science courses!

Hi! did you get in! I am placed on the alternative list! 

Yes!! I’m so excited! I got my acceptance letter late last night but I saw it this morning. I’m so nervous, but looking forward to it! I honestly was worried that everyone got an 82 or higher 😂

Yay! Congratulations! I wish you all the best on this crazy scary journey! Hoping I get to join you!!:) what prerequisites are you finishing up?! I am trying to get micro out of the way!

I started in the fall 2020. Use this time to get those beefy prerequisites over and done with. If you’re working and going to do school full time as well, you’ll have no time for all that! Good luck! 

I hope so too!! Keep us in the loop, I’d love to know. I’m retaking A&P 2 (already retook A&P 1), Human Development, and I’m taking Nutrition. The only 3 I have left is Micro, Soc 290, and Speech which I’m taking this Summer! I wanted to have all of them done before I started 😂

How do you like the program? I was thinking of working part-time after the first year as an LPN. Are you working?

I like it. Some things have been hard because of covid, but that’s out of everyone’s control. I think everyone’s making the best of what we can do while still maintaining safety. I’m working full time and doing the evening program. It’s not easy, but that’s just my situation. Thankfully my employer is flexible with me if I need to dip out to go to clinical or something. As long as you stay organized and on top of the recommended completion dates they give you and really find a study method that works for you, it can be done. This semester is medsurg and OB. OB is A LOT of content so buckle up LOL.

I won’t be working full-time thank goodness, but I have 2 kids and an doing the daytime program. I’m already looking for as many resources that can help me prepare! I’m in a few FB groups as well. I’m hoping OB won’t be as bad as I think because I’m a mother of two, interested in Midwifery, and already done a ton of research (mainly on fertility, medications, and hormones though). I really hope I can make it through the first time 😂

Hi Group! I applied for the LPN to RN program for Fall21 start. I’m still waiting for the email. All pre-reqs are completed except Speech. Looking to take that in the Summer if I get into the program. Been a LPN for 6 years. Anyone else apply to this program?
