Tri-C in Cleveland - page 2

A while ago I posted asking about the nursing program application process at Tri-C. I just wanted to update that I received acceptance into the Spring 2010 semester :D. The process was actually... Read More

    Hi SA,

    I really don't know what we need for the first semester because they haven't sent me the date/time of orientation. They did tell me that in November I will be receiving the letter of date/time and that it is mandatory. I am assuming that is when they will tell us exactly what we need.

    Wow, you are done with A&P I? That is great. I am registered for it in the fall online and also ENG 1020. I will have to take A&P II in the Spring when I start nursing school and I am thinking it is going to be very hard taking nursing classes,A&P II and Microbiology all at the same time. I wonder if I will be allowed to take Microbiology in the summer 2010.

    Good luck to you as well.


    Just got your other message. I purchased the study guide through ERI when I registered for the NET. It is called The NET Study Guide. For the math part I say practice decimals and percentages, I had a lot of that.

    We are "in limbo" which I hate because I am a big planner! SA, I am taking A&P I and Psych 2020 in the fall - the psych I am taking online.

    I did not purchase the study guide from ERI. I have the Kaplan review book and a few others. I am not too worried about Math because I heard its pretty basic. Is that true? Is geometry covered on the NET b/c that's where I may need a brush up if it is.

    The books I have go over the reading very well and I've heard that can be tricky.

    I was able to join the ADN group on My Tri-C Space which has all the useful information about the program including uniforms, scheduling, CPR class info and more. None of it is for the Spring class yet but it still gives you an idea of what's needed.

    It took a few days to get accepted to the group but I would definitely advise joining if you haven't already. SA, it says you have to be a nursing student officially to join, but like I said they let me on - I just said I was finished with my pre-reqs and interested in more info and I was accepted.

    SA, I don't think there are "appts" per se. I think all that happens is that you call the nursing department and press 1 which gives you a voice mail where you leave your student ID number and name. Then you just wait for the letter with information about the NET.

    I spoke to someone on the phone, who said that after leaving the voice mail the letter about the NET should come about 2 weeks later. As NewStart said hers came about a week later so I think the 2 weeks the department told me would be max?

    I am going to go ahead and schedule my NET I think. I figure if grades are posted as you said Thurs/Fri-ish and I call then, I should be reviewed by the 17th which is when I want to schedule it.

    NewStart, you can take A&P II and micro in the summer if you wanted to. On the ADN group I read somewhere in the files that all the science courses needed to be finished before the 3rd semester of Nursing Courses so you would be fine.

    My plan is to take them next summer if I am lucky enough to get accepted to the Spring!

    Thanks! We might see each other at the ENT; I will take it at Westlake as well, as that is the closest. In the meantime, good luck to everyone for every step towards the new career!!

    Hi Everyone,

    I just talked to a rep at ERI/ATI about the NET exam. He said that he has just received a call from Tri-C with the request to schedule another exam. After I said that I would like to take it before Oct, he said it may be scheduled at the end of Sept and said I should keep an eye on their website; it should be up within a week. So, before you go through Pearson, make sure that there is not one through ERI still available.

    Otherwise, you will have register with ERI (because Tri-C only accepts ERI exam) and they will set up with a code for Pearson. You can call ERI at (800) 292-2273 which is their sales department.

    Good Luck!

    I just called this morning and paid the money to ERI/ATI to schedule it myself with Pearson! Thanks for the info though. I'm glad they are adding another test. Although I'm sure the people who already paid for October might be upset with an earlier test being scheduled.

    I am getting married in October so I kind of want to get the test out of the way this month, before its crunch time for the wedding and fall semester is underway.

    I just got a copy of the ERI study guide from a friend and took the practice test they offer online today. I got a 100 on the math and a 68!! on the reading. It's odd because I am a total bookworm. So I guess I have a lot of studying to do before I take the test. Although its difficult to study reading comprehension!

    Good luck with everything and thanks again for the info!

    New Start 2010,

    I am starting the program in Spring of 2010 too! Someone on here asked you where you were taking your classes, but I couldn't find your answer to that. Are you taking day classes at Metro? That is what I am signed up for.

    I did see that you mentioned that you have A&P I online this fall - great choice. I took that this past spring online and LOVED it that way. I'm assuming that you have Lee Famiano? I have her again this fall for A&P II online, plus I have microbio this fall - started reading that book already and I'm a little nervous about that class : /

    It's great to "see" other nursing students on here - I just came across this site kinda by accident and thought that it was neat, so I just now signed up =)

    Well everyone.... Take care and rest up for those fall classes starting in just ONE SHORT WEEK ..eeekkk!!!

    Hello Momma412,

    I am starting day classes at Metro campus too. Yes, I hae Lee Famiano as my instructor for A&P I and I am nervous.

    I have read here on allnurses that microbiology is actually not that bad and it that it could be fun. So you should be fine. Are you going to school full time this semester?

    Now we just have to wait until Novemeber to get our orientation date/packet.
    Good luck on your classes

    I took my NET yesterday, and I am really nervous about the reading section. Does anyone know what is next after recieving the results. And if so how long does it take to be "accepted." i am really nervous!

  10. by   NewStart2012
    For the reading section you only need 65%. I got a 73% and I felt the same way you did after taking the NET. In about a week you should get your results. In my case I received the application from Tri-C the day after I got the results from the NET, hopefully it will be the same for you. When you do get the application just pick the term you want to start on, sign some papers and mail it in. I believe it was about 2 weeks after they received my application that they mailed me my acceptance letter.

    Good luck!!!!!!!

    New Start 2010,

    Don't be nervous about Famiano's course. I will not lie to you though - it is a LOT of memorization, but if you put sufficient time into your studies you should be just fine. If it was that bad with her online, I wouldn't be taking II with her this semester =)

    I am just half time this semester. I only have A&P II and Microbio. I am finished with everything other than those two classes, so those were all I could even take before the actual nursing courses begin in January.

    Good luck with your classes as well. Have fun in A&'s very interesting!!

    I just took the NET tonight and I PASSED!! Huge relief!

    I took it at the Pearson Vue testing center in Westlake and received my results before I left.

    I was really nervous because I kept getting grades all across the spectrum every time I took a reading practice test. Anyways, I didn't even finish all the questions in the reading comprehension test, so after that section I was sure I'd be retaking.

    Now it's just a waiting game to see what semester I'll be placed in! So relieved right now....
