Huron Road School of Nursing... - page 2

Hi, I am considering attending this school. However, I am a bit concerned about safety issues in traveling there. It seems it's in a high crime area, and I'm looking to do the E/W program. ... Read More

    Mommaofallgirls,
    Well.... i had been constantly calling like an annoying bill collector. LOL. I did my group session in March (where like 20 people were there we got our files, telling what other classes were needed if any, and we had to write a paragraph on why we wanted to go there and be nurses.....is that what happened for your group?) But I had another class to take. I completed the class the end of June. The "commitee" reviewed my file the end of July. I called a week after it was reviewed and was told they're gonna offer me the class for next month (Aug), and I should be recieving something in the mail that says the same thing. Now Im watching the mailbox!!!! Should get something today or tomorrow. If I were you, I would call and ask for Student Services. They know your status. As for it being "too late".. I was told that they only had a "few" spaces left for e/w and they do look at a lot of factors to determine when they will let you start the program (GPA, degree already?, all support courses taken?, i think they may also look at the answer to that question they make you write at the group session?, and your financial aid status because that takes WEEKS if you havent completed it already and had it sent to huron) anyway, dont give up, you just might be one of the select few. If not, Janurary is right around the corner, and they may offer you that class

    Vicki429... congrats! but what other "stuff" did you have to do once you were fully accepted and before class starts? ie. physical exam, background check, Teas test, are you registered in classes yet? etc. Just trying to prepare myself for whats needed beause im waiting on my offical letter any day now, although they are offering me Aug. Always trying to stay a step ahead, ya know As for MicroBio..... GOOD LUCK! that is one tough class. I took it at Tri-C . Of 25 students, 11 passed and most with C's. I think the instructor's personailty made it tough for us, but I know ppl who have taken it else where and its still hard. They say, if you make it thru Micro you'll breeze thru some of your RN classes. lol.

    Hey everyone... check out this website to see how other students rate your teachers. Its VERY useful.

    BubbkyRN2be - There are quite a few things you have to do, but it's not as big of a deal as I thought it would be. I had to get a physical/tb test/drug screen (all done in one shot). Criminal background check isnt anything...you just have to go to the CC administrative campus and that takes 5 min...they also give you your id badge. If you don't have a current CPR card, you have to get that. I just ordered most of my textbooks on amazon.com because they are less than the CC's bookstore. Here's the website with all the textbooks for this semester.

    http://www.webmedbooks.com/ccf/Cours...14794/de=17629

    I definitely recommend ordering them now from amazon...they aren't much less, but a good 6 of them were $5-$10 less and weren't much less on half.com. Also, if you buy directly from amazon and not from the people, you can get free shipping....some of the books on half.com are less, but with shipping come out to be the same price and you might as well get new ones for the same price.
    I also had to go to that book store to order our uniform ($120...).
    The TEAS test is on the 19th or 21st (you get to choose) and they don't care what score you get except for the Math section (they're using it as a grade for pharmocology i believe???) I would study for that section just in case.
    Orientation depends on what your doing (mine is on the 18th...).

    Hmmm....I think that's it.

    As for microbiology, I didn't have too many options regarding professors because it has to work with nursing classes. I survived undergrad with rateyourprofessors.com (I have a degree in something else already...big waste of time). lol Some are difficult but good teachers.

    M.O.A.G. - ( i totally just nicknamed you :wink2: ) definately CALL directly. Ask if the commitee reviewed your file beacause they just had a meeting on July 28. I emailed once back in March.... still no response. They're always really busy!!!! call , dont leave a msg, just keep calling till they answer. It seems kinda crazy, but it works. And they usually answer first thing in the a.m. or late in the evening, around 4:30-5:30. Good Luck.

    I've been trying to call but they must be REALLY busy now because I can't get through at all. Did you get anything in the mail yet?

    I do feel better now that I know how busy they are, though.

    Thanks for your input!

    When should I apply?

    Also, do you get to choose your schedule and locations of the classes or is it set up for you?


    I'd also like to know any other opinions on the school and any other useful information.

    Hey Mommaofallgirls.... what ever happened with Huron for you????
  11. by   Mommaofallgirls
    Nothing! I did get an email. Asked about a course, to which I replied that in our last conversation they were supposed to be looking at the one I took during my undergrad and hopefully accepting that one--gave them that info in June. Since that last email I have not heard back either way. I think that the problem could be that seats are full for evening. It was an issue when I interviewed but I told them I couldn't switch to days. I didn't interview until close to end of June. I can't seem to find out my status. I noticed on the info book from email that they accept late registrations until the 28th. I am just wondering if they are waiting to see if spaces open up??? I wish I could go days, but I can't. I feel kind of frustrated at this point just wondering what the issue is.

    Yes, its a very stressful process. The evening class is probably full. Class start Wednesday nite.. Dont give up! They also told me that if someone drops the program within the first week, they will call people to take their seats If you dont hear anything by next week... definately get in touch with barb by phone, so you can get set up for Janurary. The best times to call her is the evening. i think she stays late.

    Hi Everyone,

    Am curious about Huron School of Nursing....I am doing pre-reqs and core courses at Tri-C right now. They are placing for Spring semester for Nursing. Of course, I need to pass their Nurse Entrance Exam with a 80 percent in the math portion which I think is really high! Anyway, I am starting to look at other options in case I don't get into tri-c.

    I have a bachelor's in English from Ohio State and I have completed Psy 1010, Bio 1100, A and P 1 at tri-c. My math, english and electives are transferred in from my B.A. I am taking A and P 2 and Psy 2020 right now. I will take Micro in the spring and then all my non-nursing courses will be done for tri-c.

    Was curious as to the pre-reqs for Huron and when one can apply? Do I need to wait until my grade posts for A and P 2 at the completion of this fall semester? THe website is a little confusing (for instance says they have a diploma in nursing for those with a bachelors, but I could find nothing about that online) and I was hoping to get some info from those who have been through the application process.

    Thanks in advance and good luck to those beginning the program!

    Becky
