Maricopa community colleges class schedules

U.S.A. Arizona


For those of us on the waitlist one of the major questions we always seem to have is "I wonder what my class schedule for a particular school will look like"? I decided to start a thread that was dedicated strictly for those of us who wonder this on a daily basis sometimes. This question has been answered on several seperate threads dating back many years, but I thought it would be beneficial for us to have a "one stop shop thread":clown: If you are a current student or new grad and wouldn't mind helping those of us out who are still trying to figure out which program would work for us and need to get a better understanding of what blocks 1-4 would look like schedule wise, it would be greatly appreciated.

I am greatly aware that none of the information posted should be considered set in stone, I would however like to hear what students have experienced when it comes to schedules for all of the programs that are currently being offered through the Maricopa Community College program. :redpinkhe

Good luck to everyone who has been accepted for spring 2011 and those of us still waiting.


In block 1 at GWCC spring we went Monday & Tuesday 8-4 with 50 minute lunch. We had 8 eight hour clinicals and 4 eight hour alternative clinicals on Thursdays and Fridays. The first few weeks we went 2-3 additional eight hour days for labs. In block 2 over the summer we went 12 eight hour med surg clinicals and class for ten-eleven weeks for 3-6 hours a day, it lightened up at the end of the semester, we did not have alternative clinical. In block 3 we went 2 days a week (Monday and Tuesday) for the first month, then 1 day (Tuesday) all for 3 hour classes. We had 4 - 12 hour med surg clinicals, 4 - 12 hour OB clinicals, and 4 - 12 hour peds clinicals, and 1 - eight hour alternative clinical. In block 4 we are scheduled for 2 days a week for 3 months and med surg (ER/ICU) and psych rotations. You can look at the different schedules each block on their website, just search for the NUR's.

In block 1 (Fundamentals) at GCC we did Monday and Tuesday lectures from 8 - 10:50 and then lab from 11:50 - 1:50, Wednesdays we were in lab (I don't remember the exact times) for the first 6 weeks, then the following Wednesdays were clinical days. Usually from 6:30 - 1. Thursday we had lab from 8 to 10:50.

Thanks for the info guys, Im really hoping and praying for this Fall, so we will soon see:coollook:
