Nice to know there are a couple more with me!! So how does that work with the TBA clinicals. Do they have a certain time to notify you, or will you find out in orientation?
I'm in the Mon-Wed 5-7 class. Unfortunately, by the time I could get there, all they had left were clinicals that were TBA. So I still have no idea which day my clinical is...ugh. Although any day is fine...just hate not knowing.
I wouldn't do American Red Cross. If you have a clinical at Methodist Hospital, they won't accept ARC. You must have American Heart Association BLS! Southwest doesn't tell you this. I found out the hard way. Do yourself a favor and do the AHA now.
I took it over the summer so the schedule may have been a little more accelerated, but we had about 8 exams(about 1 per week), all closed book and the midterm and the final were proctored. They ranged from about 80-150 questions or so depending on the chapters. There were also several assignments where you just answered basic questions. Those were more time consuming than difficult. As far as the labs...part was a computer program. You had to identify unknown microorganisms running the correct tests with proper "procedures" within a certain number of virtual days. I became a pro at those so let me know if you need help.
I was taking this class through the entire summer while I took A&P I the first half and A&PII the second half so I'm having a hard time remembering all of the detail. Hope this helps ya!
I think I'm just gonna sign up for the CPR class that the American Red Cross is having Dec 11th. It is called "CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer and Health Care Provider or Lifeguard". It is $80 and it's also an all day class (8-5)...ugh.
Xander-She said that she has homework but it's easy. And the tests are 100 questions with 25 of them spelling. She's made A's on all of them. So I think it's safe to say...NO PAPERS!!! yay. I hate them too.
fleur-di-lis-RN2b-Thanks so much for the info. I'll call a little later. Anyone interested in doing a group CPR class?
Xander-One of my friends is taking Medical Terminology now at Southwest. I'll ask her if she recommends it. She was accepted for spring as well.
Also, does anyone know of a good place to take the CPR class? Other threads on here had outdated links.
I'm in too!!! Yay. Congrats y'all!
I have applied for spring 2011 at Southwest as well. 400-500 applicants?? Now I'm panicking!! Goodluck to you all and I hope to see you in the spring.
