    Good luck to you both! Which program/location did you apply to? I applied for the part time/PM @ SHC (Shea) location to start this fal. Do either of you know what the first block schedule looks like?

    Best wishes!

    I applied to the Grand Canyon daytime position. I have a friend that started the summer program a couple weeks ago and he told me his schedule was something like:
    Monday lecture - 8-1
    Tuesday lecture - 8-1
    Wednesday lecture - 8-1
    Thursday - off
    Friday clinical - 12 hours

    Something to that extent. 4 lecture days and 1 clinical day. The enrollment counselor told me that scottsdale schedule was evenings like 4-9pm daily and 1 12 hours clinical rotation? She also told me that the Glendale location had the most openings so because that was my preference I had a decent chance getting in.
    I'm nervous because I applied after the deadline because my enrollment counselor told me they opened up more spots for this fall and that they were accepting apps till end of May now. So hopefully this is true and I have a good shot! =)

    Good luck to you, Nick. I sure hope you get in!
    I didn't realize they added more spots which is great. I was afraid the part time/PM program would be more competitive so I will have to see what happens. My alternate is day time fast track but hopefully I won't have to go that route. I have a full time job that I love so I am really hoping I won't have to quit working.

    So day program has lectures on M-W and clinical on Friday with TR off? That's really nice! From what I understood, PM program is with lectures on M-R and 12 hr clinical on Sat like you mentioned. I sure wouldn't mind it if lectures were only on M-W and we had Thurs and Fridays off.

    Please keep us posted, Nick!
    Good luck!!

    I've asked for the main GCU campus/accelerated program. But said I would take whatever I could get. Not sure how many applied vs spots, so I want to make sure to keep my options open.

    Good luck to you, Mrs. O!

    I can't remember when the notification for acceptance would be mailed out... any idea? For some reason, I thought it was sometime in mid June but I could be wrong. Please post & let us know if you got in! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for all of us...

    did ya'll receive that e-mail today from your enrollment counselor? if not, here it is...


    we currently are in the process of finalizing everything with the acceptance process. acceptance results will come out and we’ll know if you’re accepted around the middle of june. we’ll be notifying you of the results from acceptance via email.

    should you be accepted we are going to have an orientation meeting to go over the necessary immunization requirements. the date will be june 20th @ 9am over in the college of business (william lecture hall), here on gcu’s main campus at 3300 w. camelback. immunization packets will be passed out and requirements for those immunizations will be reviewed at that time.

    we mainly wanted to notify you of the date and to plan on attending if you are accepted.
    dude and dudette's.... i'm getting nervous..... anxiety is kicking in a bit :/
    i hope we all get in.....

    Good luck to all! I got the email as well. I have all my shots and stuff already taken care of, since I'm currently working at a hospital and had to have them prior to employment. The hospital is making a copy for me so I can just take everything and hand it in.

    Hey all! I noticed a few of you were able to choose whether you wanted to go to school in the mornings or evenings....I was told we werent able to choose when we wanted to go to school. How does this work?! Thanks!

    Mrs. O, which hospital do you work at? I also had to have all my immunization completed prior to taking a CNA course at PVCC so I have all of mine completed. The only thing I may need is TB skin test prior to starting in August. My last one was done last Oct, so if they need one within 6 months, then I will probably have to have it done. I wonder if it's a 2 step TB skin test like the one for community colleges. I work at PCH.
