I had many classes that I took at a different college that were part of the pre or corequisites for nursing. Those grades do not count towards your actual Nassau average, but they do get counted (with whatever grade you got) for admission to the nursing program. My gpa from the 12 classes I took at Nassau was 4.0, but my gpa for admission to nursing was 3.9 because of those classes from my previous degree. The 3.9 didn't appear on my transcript, but that's the number they based my admission on.
KKING, all your grades will count except for the effective communication one. I had credits from another school and even though I finished 9 classes at NCC with a 4.0, my grades for prereqs taken at another school were added which lowered my gpa to 3.9.
All your grades look good except for sociology. You would probably have gotten in for day this year. I'm not positive about evening, but I know some of my classmates have Cs and got in. I think it depends on who your competition is.
Good luck with everything.
You have to try and get the best grades possible, but even with a 4.0 you probably won't get in if all you have are the 4 prereqs. You should take as many of the non nursing classes as you can before applying b/c they will take someone with a 3.5 and all those classes finished over someone with a 3.9 and only a few classes finished.
You should try to do really well in A&P 1 and 2. 2 is not a prereq, but I wouldn't apply w/out it. Also, if you take all the english and social science classes you will probably get good grades which would boost your GPA.
The grades needed to get in vary with the applicant pool each year, but I'm in the evening class and know at least one person that got in w a 3.75.
I'm starting Nur 101 in the fall in the evening program. I'm pretty excited and nervous at the same time. Good luck with everything.
Alli, I actually just re-read your post. I was actually wondering about the spring semester so that I could try to work out a work schedule for the year. I will still go to school tho, because I'm real curious about who my teachers will be.
Thanks so much everyone for replying. I will go check the schedule at school. I really would have never thought that they would know the schedule this far in advance.
Thank you so much for replying.
I was interested in applying for a new position and was wondering if I would have a constant schedule throughout the 2 years. I guess I will not be able to do that since I may need to change my schedule every semester. I am a little bummed because that job sounded very interesting.
I remember that at orientatioon they said that eventually you will go to clinical 2 days a week. What days are they for the evening program? Are they always the same? We have clinical on Thursday now, so do we keep going on Thurs every semester, or does it change?
"We all got our payouts and just simply moved on. "
Mother23, thanks for taking the time to write this. I was seriously considering applying for this once done with school, but if the situation is that dire I don't know if it's worth it. I want to get ICU experience and they were the only place I really found that hire GNs. If anyone knows of any other places that would hire a new grad ADN in the ICU I would be very grateful if you shared.
Can you explain what you mean by the payouts? Is that something you had to pay them?
Also, I know that you have to take critical care essentials I and II. Not to sound stupid, but do you get to keep that on your record if you leave early?
Thanks everyone for answering such a silly question. I guess I'll wear the stupid tights just in case. Also, maybe the support hose will be better than regular ones so I'll give them a try.
Alli, it's good to know that maybe I won't ever have to actually wear that dress...
And oh yeah, the guys don't have to wear anything special.
At our orientation the other day, they said that women must wear white stockings or tights under our scrub pants to clinicals (no knee highs allowed) in case that we need to change into a scrub dress. Why would we ever have to change into a dress?? I really HATE tights and have no desire to be running around in a dress.
If anyone knows what this is for, please let me know cause I really can't figure it out.
I'm taking algebra and trig for the 1st summer session, and elementary functions in calculus for the 2nd....Yeah, It's gonna be a looong summer.
Alli, thanks for your reply. I already took it out and for some reason, the hole starts closing right away. I can't keep taking it in and out because it hurts/bleeds and I really don't want to get an infection. I will miss it though....Also, I just wanted you to know that I always appreciated your thoughtful posts and all the info you provide.
Nat, how do you know what teacher you will have?
Also, this is the site for Austin C.C. and I thought it was awesome. Helped clarify some procedures. http://www2.austin.cc.tx.us/microbug...actical_1.html
Try http://www.microbelibrary.org/index.asp, it has tons of pictures. I used it throughout the semester because the pictures in our lab book were terrible.
