    Since karate therapy was canceled due to nurses almost killing each other during practice; we had to use a punching bag instead...
    Forget about karate! I just hope she isn't thinking about me right now...

    Anyone know of any childcare that's not too expensive?

    I suggest that you finish all your prereqs before applying to any program. Getting into nursing is hard and very competitive! I finished my prereqs Fall 2010 got denied for Spring 2012 and for Fall 2012 I was waitlisted and finally accepted. I waited for a year and a half and spent countless nights without sleeping because I was very worried about my future. Some times I even asked myself if I had made the right choice... I had a 4.00 on the prereqs and a 76.7 on the TEAS V. The most important apect is when you finished your prereqs, for if you finished this year and you apply for next year along with someone who finished a semester before you, they will pick whoever finished first! TEAS and GPA only matter when you compete with eople that finished their prereqs on the same semester...I applied for Generic Track with SSC...

    You should check that with FA, not with those people at the FA front desk (they never give accurate info)...

    Mary, I was an alternate, so I know what you are feeling. Word of advice: start getting your ducks in a row now because if they call you, and chances are they will, you won't have the luxury of time to get everything done, and there is a LOT to be done. Make sure you get your proof of immunizations or get them up to date now because that was the most time consuming part.
    When did they tell you that you were accepted? A month after your "Alternate email"? I feel as if someone left me on hold while on a very important telephone call...

    I'll might as well start getting my paperwork together... Need Immunization papers... Anything else I may need? Are the uniforms and the rest of the stuff they ask you to get expensive? I know the Background check is about $40, ouch...

    I'm an alternate for the AS... On the top ten... I have to wait and they have up to August 6 to tell me if I made it in!!!

    My email said that everyone who was accepted was from FFall 2010 or earlier and with a 3.0 and I'm an Alternate for the AS. Turns out the part about picking people from Fall 2010 was a "mistake" because it was Summer 2010. I finished my prerrqs by Fall 2010 with a 4.0 GPA and yes, they still are making me wait! I'm on the top 10 Alternates for the AS and they have until August 4 to notify if a spot opened up for me... To those who ask about GPA, don't worry about it because they'll make you wait 2 years anyway! The funny thing is that the first semester around 20 students drop out and by graduation, less than 50 are left...

    I haven't been contacted at all yet... Does that mean I'm not being accepted?
    I haven't been contacted either... hoping the email arrives next week... if not, i won't even bother opening the rejection letter that comes via snail mail...

    If you apply to both Generic and Concurrent and got into both. Please accept the Concurrent but PLEASE deny the Generic so it is given to those who wait on SSC Generic Track! Thanks...
