    Hello Lmccrn62,

    Can you tell me which other hospitals they would give as an option for clinicals? and which one would you recommend?
    I am not sure if the school will be making changes with the Rutgers and Umdnj merger. So I would check. Newark Beth Israel, morristown are good places. There are others but they maybe specialty specific.

    Thanks for the input GladtobeaRN,

    I believe that I read some where that if you do well on the TEAS test you might don't need to take the NALC. Im really nervous about this test, specially the writing part, I am good at writing essays, but not when I'm being tested on it. Hopefully I do good, so I don't have to take the class, because the days they are offering the class I wont be in the country, so its gonna be a impossible for me to take it.

    Thanks again for the info.

    No need for you to be nervous about the TEAS. You've already been excepted in the program. It's there just for you to see what areas you're better in than others. They don't kick you out of the program because of bad TEAS scores. In fact, some who had bad TEAS scores became honor students within the program. There's a writing portion because you'll be doing writing projects in the program including a big Community Health project which is a 40-80 page report. Brutal to say the least.

    NALC is a benefit because you get the TEAS and writing portion done before the rest of your classmates, plus its a time to build friendships. The only time you need to be nervous is when you have your first exam in a few weeks after the program starts.

    Hi all and congratulations!

    I just got an email talking about how there is no more dates left for registering me and and probably some other students for the TEAS test until after the term begins. It says we'll find out more information about this during orientation.
    I'm glad and also a bit worried? In order to attend NALC classes it says you had to have taken the TEAS. I sent an email back with the NALC registration form completed. *crosses fingers*
