Tri-C in Cleveland - page 40
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
May 3, '12Quote from aharris1GOOD FOR YOU!! I am so happy for you. What campus are you at? At East, I took it with Mike McCraith. He gives you extra credit, teaches really well and is very patient and kind. He turned out to be a good friend of mine as well and will be giving me some tutoring on Nursing mathFunny you say take 1250 someone who I work with that is about to graduate nursing this month told me the same thing so I switched to 1250. It looks much easier than 1200 what do u think have u took this class ? I also am almost done with my sciences this summer a&p 2 and fall Micro.
I got through with a high B but math is not my forte. There are things like stats stuff, like "what are the odds of rolling a 3" so you learn about ratios. We also did stuff like with interest, compound and simple interest. There was also some graphing stuff like with algebra but there is only a portion of that. You will be so happy you took 1250. I've told SO MANY people to take 1250 and for some reason, they werent comfortable with it, so they suffered through 1200! oh well.
Again, good for you and GOOD LUCK! You will be so happy you took 1250. Find some students in 1200 and and listen to their nightmares! 1200 is so unnecessary!
May 3, '12Yeah I agree I went to tutoring for math at campus and would see people in there for 1200 struggling:uhoh21: I know Im not a Math person and if I dont have to take that class Im not. I am at Eastern campus and Im taking that class with McCraith as well. Thanks for the advice though I appreciate it. Are you in the program already or starting?
May 4, '12Quote from aharris1Lucky you! You have McCraith. LOVE HIM!!! You will be FINE! I took his 1250 on a full course load. Had I taken a lighter load, I may have gotten an A, but oh well!Yeah I agree I went to tutoring for math at campus and would see people in there for 1200 struggling:uhoh21: I know Im not a Math person and if I dont have to take that class Im not. I am at Eastern campus and Im taking that class with McCraith as well. Thanks for the advice though I appreciate it. Are you in the program already or starting?
I am starting Nursing in the Fall! (1300&1450) I am so excited. Orientation is at the end of the month. They are so stingy with the syllabus and the book list. Jeeze.... It's like top secret information. I dont know why....

Unless you totally stink at math the math review book isn't really necessary, and neither is the Lab and Diagnostic test book. Nor is the medical dictionary.
May 4, '12Quote from ScottEHow do you know this is the book list for the new semester? Did they post the book list already??This is the book for 1300

May 4, '12Quote from purplcavThey have been using these books for a long time. You can look at the Spring 2011 1300 and 1450 syllabi on the group site.How do you know this is the book list for the new semester? Did they post the book list already??
This is the math book.
May 4, '12Quote from ScottEHow do you know they wont change the editions or get new books? I wouldnt buy books until I get the list. But thanks for postingThey have been using these books for a long time.....
May 4, '12I am taking A&P 2 on Tues and Thur I have to take it kinda different b cuz I took it previous to them changing the way they offer it I am going to be taking 233B and 234B. Whatever as long as I get it done. Good luck this Fall I cant wait until I start did you wait long after applying.
May 5, '12Quote from aharris1I've had my career all mapped out, so I applied last year because I WANTED to start this fall. So it all worked out as far as when I was finishing my sciences to when I actually start the program. But I know they are admitting for Spring 13 still, so if you want to start then, you have a good chance of getting in for the January 13 semester! Good luck on your AP and getting into the program.did you wait long after applying.
May 9, '12This summer I will be taking math 0960 +& eng 1010. Fall I'll take psy 1010, math 1200 +& bio 1100. So I'll be applying probably jan 2013. Is there a chance I can get in fall 13?In spring 13 I'm gonna take a&p1 and psy 2020 .summer 13 a&p2 and micro. Should I wait an extra semester to apply? This is such a long process I don't wanna spend 4-5 years on an adn when I can go to cleveland state for the same amount of time and get a bsn. I do have a daughter though, and i'd like to work at least weekends. I just thought the workload would be lighter in an adn program than a bsn.Also, I didn't even want to go for my rn. I wanted to be an lpn but i have heard from one person that the market sucks for them in this area. Maybe I'm just rushing things. I reeally want to be a nurse but it seems so out of reach sometimes.
May 9, '12I am an LPN so I can tell you that you're right, you need to get the RN!! Its a tough road but it will pay off in the long run, believe me. I am in the lpn to rn program currently at tri-c and my opinion is to keep plugging away like you are doing now. If you have kids & work, tri-c is great considering how many on-line classes there is and even when you get into the program they have an evening weekend option for people like you. You can't even apply until the prereqs are done so I'm doubting that you can get in 2013 because your math is putting you behind, you need 1200 math or equivillant. It will go by quickly....you can do it
May 9, '12Hi hopefullyfuturenurse,
I too was in pretty much the same situation you are in now. I was able to start my application process this January/February, and around mid-March I finally completed the process, and was accepted into the Fall 2012 program. So, it is possible to start in Fall 13 if you apply in early 2013. Do not waste one day though. There are many steps you will have to follow in the process and there are many people trying to get in after finishing up their December classes. I am also on a similar course track. I'm finishing up my A&P1 and PSY2020 this week, then I'm taking Micro and A&P2 in the summer. It is do-able. (I work full-time and I'm a single mother).
I also agree that you will want to get your RN and not your LPN. I have LPN friends who cannot find work. And unfortunately, in order to go back to school in the LPN to RN track you must have 1 year of work experience, but they can't find jobs to get that experience so they can't even go back for their RN!!
