    The externship doesn't start until January 5th I believe, they just require that you be done with block I by December 31st. I guess they start interviewing quite early, it was a total fluke that I found the job posting, but definitely a good one :-)
    That's pretty cool!! Good luck with the interview!

    If you've had it already, let us know how it went.

    I did not think that you can extern when you have not completed Block 1....has that changed?

    I know that Banner takes into consideration your NET scores, your GPA, your application essay answers and your prereq completions into account. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you how they weigh all of those things out when determining whom to call for an interview and final acceptance though.

    I work dayshift 0645 to 1915. I'm part time and work 3 shifts a pay period. One week I work one day, and the next week I work 2. My schedule works great for having three kids at home.
    I want your shift when I graduate. I want to work part time. But I am sure that it is better for me to work full time first and then transition to part time. I have three kids under 9 yo at home also.

    Thanks again for everyone's input. It seems like most of you work the 12 hour shifts.

    Does anyone know what scrubs we will be wearing for the Banner program? Is it the same as the MCCD Nursing program (the teal one w/MCCD logo)?

    I applied at the same time that you did, Oct '07 to the MCCD program. I was told that the wait was 1 to 1.5 year wait. I also applied to the Banner Fellows program in Jan '08 and was accepted - starting Block 1 on 7/14. I do believe that the more schools/programs that you are willing to attend (read: flexibility), then your wait time will decrease. However, if you are only wanting 1 particular program at 1 particular school - you have extended your wait time.

    What hours do you work and what dept/unit do you work in? I have an understanding that most units are run on 12 hr shifts, 7-7pm or 7-7am...I am sure that is not the case for every department. However, I was wondering what is a normal shift for any given unit?

    After seeing the thread about the Baylor plan, I was wondering about the variety of shifts that are out there.

    Aawww, I am sorry to hear that. I pray for the best for you and your family. I know that you have to do what's best for your family right now. I am sure that you will find a way to reach your goal. Take care and God Bless!

    If I had not gotten into the program this month, then my next class that I was going to take was a pathophysiology class and some other lower level courses that I would need (and could take at comm college level) to apply to my BSN. Good luck on getting in this semester!

    I just got back and I was OK on all but the Hep B shots, so I started that today. I just have to go back Monday for my TB skin test read and I am home free (with immunizations at least). Now for the hard part - nursing school.
