A Happy labor Day to the AN family; I hope you've all had a pleasant day with you families and friends. I'm hoping someone on this forum can provide me with some insight; I've been accepted into the PCC bridge program beginning on 10/26. I could use some heads-up on what to anticipate during the 8-week transition semester, if anyone has been through this program.

Any information will be appreciated, as I prepare for the mandatory orientation in a couple of weeks. Thanks in advance.

Hey, I was also accepted into the program. From what I've heard the transition course is 8 weeks and is about 1-2 days a week totaling about 6 hours/week. I heard it's very easy compared to the program that starts in January and goes over a lot of dosages.

Hi izzo, congrats on making the cut. I made it as far as the alternate list last summer; I'm looking forward to hit the ground running. See you on campus :)

Hi!!

Is this thread for the spring 2016 cohort? How do you all think it's looking for alternates? I'm an alternate but have no idea where I am on the list =[ were any alternates at orientation ? Any no shows? So anxious !

Hello Medulla,

there were 20 of us at the orientation, however I don't know whether there were any no-shows.

Well, I believe all those who showed up had to have taken and passed the TEAS, because we had until 9/11 to accept or decline the admission offer, and also to have official TEAS scores sent from ATI. During the orientation, we were told we had till 10/26 (1st day of class) to complete a to-do list, including immunizations, malpractice insurance, test prep material purchases, textbook purchases.
