Tri-C Nursing Program-Starting in Fall 2011 - page 2

Hi All, I was looking for fellow students that will be starting the nursing program in the Fall of 2011. I am excited :yeah:about starting and just looking for others who I might be in class... Read More

    I will be starting the accelerated program in Fall 2011. I was accepted back in August and according to the Tri-C website it looks like they are still admitting. I am not sure how long the wait will be for applying. I am sure it depends on how many others will be applying with you and which program you are applying for. In my experience, I would make sure to have your backround check done and accepted by Tri-C as soon as possible. I had friends who heard back about their backround check after 2 weeks. However, it took close to 2 months for mine. I had to make a lot of follow up calls to get it resolved and I didn't have anything on my backround report that should have held up the process. I would hate to see this happen to someone else. It was frustrating for me.

    Qcobra is right!

    Make sure you get the background check done quickly. There was a mishap with mine and I had to wait a whole month afterwards to receive my app. Fortunately, it didn't affect me getting into the Fall 2011 program but it easily could have because the apps only go out once a month so get things done promptly. Good Luck in your App process :-)

    Thanks mel...when did you apply for the program?
  5. by   MelMelH

    I applied at the end of the summer semester in 2010. I was accepted by September 2010. Besides the background part, things went pretty smoothly. So, will you be done with your pre-reqs at the end of this semester?
  6. by   J845
    Yes, I will have bio 1100, math 1200, and english 1010 all done this May! Woohoo!

    That is good! Make sure you call the nursing dept a little bit before the grades are posted and again when they actually do post. Good Luck! Let me know if you have any other questions about the process.

    Wow, I feel like it's been forever since I applied for the program. I finished my prereqs Fall 2009 and applied for the program early 2010. I had been accepted and then that is when they added the background check into the process and I had to do that and then get reaccepted. It's crazy to think that when the program starts this August that it will have been nearly a year and a half since I got my acceptance letter. Time really does fly.

    Wow LeahMarie,

    You have been waiting a little while to actually start the program. But you are right...time does fly and our orientation is coming up in May and that is right around the corner. I am so anxious and ready to get it going already :-)

    Thanks a lot for the tips, Mel. I hope you can keep us updated on how things go once you start the program. Would you by any chance know where the clinical sites are?

    Well the sites this semester 1300/1450 for Metro Days were

    Southwest General
    St Vincent's
    2 at UH
    and Cleveland Clinic I believe. One of the sites was canceled so there are only 7 this semester.

    If you are in the Metro Days program take the Southwest General clinical.

    Did they cancel South Pointe I wonder? That is the closest one to me but either way, I have to go wherever is available.

    Yes, I will keep you updated as I go through the process. That way you will have a head start when it's your turn
