Pre-Reqs and Supporting classes COMPLETE!!

Specializes in Operating Room.

I have now completed ALL of my ADN pre-reqs and ALL of the supporting courses!!

Here are my grades:

Pre-Reqs:

Anatomy & Physiology 1: A

Psychology: A

Comp. English: A

College Algebra: B

Supporting Courses:

Anatomy & Physiology 2: A

Microbiology: A

Speech: A

Developmental Psychology: A

Elective (American Lit): B

For the Fall '05 class, the acceptance GPA cut-off was 3.77 with only 11 credits of support classes completed.

If I figured it out correctly, I'll be applying with a 3.77 for the pre-reqs, and I'll have all 17 credits of support classes completed, with a GPA 3.82 (for the support classes.)

I'm not posting this to brag because I know there are many with higher grades than I have. I am just so excited, I had to share it with everyone!!!!

I'll have my physical, last HepB, and PPD on the 29th of August. Then I'll make copies of each, and put the originals in the envelope. Then I have to decide to mail the application in, or go directly to the school and hand deliver it.

(Has anyone ever had a problem with just mailing their application?? I'm almost scared it will get lost in the mail!!)

I'm taking a break for the fall. I feel I may need a break before starting the RN program in JANUARY '06!! If I don't get in, I'm not sure what I'll do. (I guess get a job or something, and wait.) lol

ANYWAY, I AM FINISHED!!! I AM READY TO GET ACCEPTED IN THE NURSING PROGRAM, AND ONLY HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE NURSING COURSES & CLINCALS!!!!! I AM SOOOOOOOO EXCITED!

That is so awesome. You should be REALLY proud of yourself. I'm really happy for you. I wish I were finished too but I'm just starting. Two years for me before I can get into a BSN program. That is if Chemistry doesn't kill me first.

Congrats on your success :balloons: :balloons: :yelclap: :balloons:

Thank you!! :) :balloons: :balloons:

Good luck on your program as well. I'm opting not to apply to a school where Chem is required. I figure I'll suffer when I do the RN-BSN route later! lol

Where in Tx are you? We HAD to have chemistry for the RN program. That and Statistics. I'm applying in Jan for the RN Transition Since all my prereks (sp) and supporting classes are through

I'm in the DFW area. Some schools in the area do require chem, some don't.

Congrats on finishing all of your pre-reqs and supporting classes! It's a great feeling isn't it???

Thank you all!

Thanks, and your welcome, JessicaGmz! :)

I'm not sure if smart cookie is the correct term, but hopefully those grades I busted my butt for will get me right in come January!

Now, my CPR class is this coming Wednesday (17th), and I will have everything ready to apply! :)

You sure did work hard. Now, we start clinicals together and we have each other for motivation and help. :icon_hug:

Congratulations! When I mailed in my application, I spent the extra $ for delivery confirmation for my own peace of mind. That doesn't necessarily prevent it being lost in the mail, but at least you will know that they received it!

GOOD LUCK!!! :Melody:

Thanks! I thought about that as well. I'll figure out what I'll do at the last minute I guess....as soon as I put the physical, etc papers in the envelope and seal it. Then I'll decide. lol

I know from the time I mail it or drop it all, time will slow down. From August 29th to mid October will seem like forever.

:icon_lol: Maybe I'll just concentrate on Christmas coming around again, and it will seem like tomorrow! :icon_lol:

Good for you. I just finished all my pre-req to get on the waiting list, which I am so happy about. I never thought I would pull this summer off by taking Chem, Bio and Eng and Finally passed the NET test. I am hoping to start NSG school next fall. So while I am waiting I am taking:

Fall Semester- A&P I

Sociology

Physical Ed. (STress Mngmt) online

Winter- Psy- Life Span and Development

A&PII

I am pretty nervous about the A&P classes though. I hope I can do almost as well as you did. Was it really hard to you, any advise on what supplies I should get as far as Flash cards ect??? Thank and good luck

Eventually I'd like the BSN but for now I am on on my last 2 pre-req (starting soon) for the ADN. I was going to start the req's for the BSN in January while doing the clinicals for the ADN. I am not going to overload though. Just one class at a time then maybe do an RN to BSN. Not too sure, but am looking into that.

I am excited too. At last, the fun begins :)

As far as A&P goes, I bought the flash cards, but didn't use them. I bought a coloring book, but didn't use it either. I know several people that bought either/both, and used them, and it helped them. So, it just depends on what you need to make the grade.

I did make my own flashcards with index cards. I either wrote on both sides, or pasted a small picture of something on one, and the answer on the other.

I made a CD of my lecture notes and listened to the CD to and form class, and on the way to take the tests.

I made powerpoint quizzes, and I studied those. (http://www.nursingjourney.com).

I also recommend using your schools science tutors, if they offer them, if you have any trouble. Spend as much time as you can studying, take your own pics of everything you need to learn such as models, bones, etc., if needed. (I have a bunch of pics on my site as well. If you see anything that you have in your class, print that pic out. You can write numbers on the areas where you need to know, and write the answers on a different sheet of paper. This is now a study method for you, if you can't go to, or not offered open lab times.)

Good luck and congratulations on making your goal of placement on your school's waiting list! (My program doesn't have a waiting list....you're either in or not.)

With determination, you can do well!

I'm trying to make up my mind to take a break or take a class that will be needed for the RN-BSN.

I definitely want to do it within 5 years. I don't want to take A&P 1, A&P 2, and MicroSUX! all over again!! LOL

Either that, or I won't do UTA-Arlington's RN-BSN program. I probably will do an online RN-BSN program instead.

Yes, that is part of the reason why I wanted to go for it before the 5 yrs. Also, wanted to get it out of the way now that I don't have any little ones. We would like to start a family soon, so it is an intricate decision. :)
