Is the $3500 for Subsidized and Unsubsidized loans? There are also "Alternative" student loans, which I don't really know much about, but do
a search on this website for "Alternative Student Loans" or "Private Student Loans"
Hope this helps!!
I worked 40 hours a week in Blocks 1 & 2 and got decent grades, but I was
in the P/T program. In Blocks 3 & 4 I will only be working 1 day a week as
an extern. I am taking out students loans to help pay for bills. I don't know what you financial situation is, but have you thought about student loans?
Congratulations !!! :hatparty: :hatparty:
Ill be doing the FT one.
How do you like glendales program? I hear its one of the best in the state.
Hello my name is Jared and this is my first post to the Arizona board, and just wanted to say hello to everyone A Little about me. I am 24/M Pre-Nursing student nearing the completion of my pre-reqs at G.C.C (spring 06 im totally done FINALLY! I was a former Scottsdale community college lifer until this semester,tired of the drive), anyways, I was curious to know if anyone here goes to GCC now as a pre-rn student or are currently enrolled in the RN program. I would like to extend my friend circle to people going into the same line as work as me ( im really big on comradery),and my current class load limits me to really finding out who the other pre-RN/RN students are. From my past experience on other forums i made friends with many other nursing students at S.C.C (who were also scattered around the campus)So if you currently attend GCC leave your post THANKS!
P.S. if you have messengers my profile info will give you them also
Just trying to determine if there are any in-state programs in which I could get an MSN/CNM degree.
I will start Block I this winter (hopefully), and was wondering - what skills are learned during Block I here in AZ? Catheters, EKG's, what else? Also, when are IV starts covered, in Block III? Thanks in advance!
Thank you again!
Wow, I am taking Patho now, will that make this especially hard for me or maybe give me an advantage over the others that had patho a while back?? Guess it seems it could work both ways, although I even forgot parts of anatomy! I can't believe how little I seem to know now!
All your feedback helps. I need to get organized.........FAST. I have to relearn also how to be a college student! I have taken a class here and there for a while , but haven't had a full schedule for I don't know how long. Your tips hopefully will help me a lot. Your help has been appreciated more than you know.......I have no one else to ask!
I am in the process of forming a study group.......hopefully a good one. Honestly, right now, I hope I come up with a better plan cuz I am trying just to get the reading done this week. And no outline, so I don't know how I will remember it!:stone Well...........deep breaths!
I'll let ya know what I come up with............Hey, you didn't tell me where your clinicals are!!!:uhoh21:
The reading alone looks like it would take 10-15 hours!!!:uhoh21: Do you "skim" the reading or something? Some of it seems not so important, do you just try to get out the important stuff? I am thinking as I read that I am never going to remember this! Should I be taking notes or something? I think of doing that, then I think, but how will I study too and finish the reading too. Or is this herein lies the stress of nursing school?
I just feel like I don't have a "plan". I feel very disorganized. It has been a long time since I have juggled multiple classes and took notes other than during lecture! Can you give me any more tips to organize myself and my studies...what do you do first, the second, then last as far as throughout the week? If you can tell me, what were your grades for Block 1 doing what you did? Also.....is everything out of the books on the tests or could I actually skim read the reading and study hard the power points?
Oh, where are your clinicals at Block 1? Thanks!
Kabin.........no I have Patho with ******.....thanks for the tips though!
Ok, Luann and GlendaleStudent, I know you are in here!!
Well, I have started school and am sufficiently overwhelmed I believe.
Wanted to know now....Glendale Student......you work FT. Tell me how you prepare for your classes. Do you just read and then only take notes in lecure and study lecture notes for tests? I am sortof trying to feel out whether I should even bother outlining info from the text before the lecture, only because I have patho as well and don't know if I will have time.
Please give me an idea of how you break up the assignments and what your study schedule is like (what you do first, second...)
I'm flailin' around here. This is the most school I have had in over ten years! Thanks so much guys!
Anyone else have any tips.........please respond!!!
Thanks so much for your replies. Everybody has been so helpful. Where in the east valley do you live?? How long does it take you to get there? Why did you pick GCC as a school? How long of a wait did you have? It just seems like I have so many questions and don't know where to turn. Once I'm in the program I will be in it for 2 years of my life so I want to make the right decision.
I was just wondering about the GCC part-time program. I read under another thread that it is just on Fri and Sat's. Is this true?? I live in Gilbert right now, but if I only had to drive there two days a week it would probably be pretty doable. I've got my app in right now for fall, but fall's full up and I'll have to redo it for the spring aps and was just wondering if I should put that down as an option. I've tried calling the advisor, but we all know how hard it is to get in touch with them :chuckle . Any suggestions I'd appreciate.
Glendale Student and Luann.........do you guys work in healthcare now? If so, did going to nursing school help you get your job?
There are a few relatively quick entry options such as Grand Canyon University and, I imagine, the Pima Medical Institute. Usually the downside is cost, but remember some hospitals pay off student loans for a few years of work commitment.
