    Bergen CC Nursing Spring 2018

    Hey guys! I just finished level 1 this past semester .. if anyone has any questions I might be able to help out a little :) I'm in the day program so some things might be a little different for us but I'll try to answer any questions as best as I can :) Congrats on getting in & prepare for a wild ride.

    I'm in the same boat -- starting nursing school this fall. I have a 1/2 sleeve but mine is from my shoulder to my elbow so I'll just be wearing a 3/4 sleeve white shirt under my scrub top. I really want to finish my sleeve but it'll have to wait until school is over I don't want to have to be forced to wear a full sleeve shirt -.- I'm in the medical field already as an x-ray tech and I've never had an issue regarding my tattoo so I think it's completely crazy the rules schools enforce. I completely understand wanting students to "look professional" but I don't agree with the stigma surrounding tattoos/piercings. Oh well .. it's just a few years. Gotta deal with it. My hubby wears those nude tattoo sleeves to cover his forearm tattoo at work, they sell them on amazon pretty cheap for a pair of 2 sleeves! Good luck :)

    @ anyone who took CPR class already -- if anyone has the 2015 AHA BLS student book & would be willing to lend it to me, I'm taking the class on 7/11. Please & thank you! :)

    Starting Over at 25

    I'll be 26 in September when I start my first semester of nursing school .. I graduated with an A.A.S in radiography in 2014 & realized that I want more patient care than being an x-ray tech offers so I decided to "start over" also. After orientation with a bunch of 18 & 19 year-olds, I did feel kind of old but nursing is what I see myself doing for the rest of my life so I'm glad I realized it now as opposed to many years from now. Age is most definitely just a number -- I had a pharmacy school intern at my job who was over 50 (with 6 years of school ahead of her), her kids were all out of the house & she was finally able to pursue her dream of being a pharmacist. She is my inspiration. You are never to old to follow your dreams!

    Bergen CC Nursing Teas

    Not sure if you still need info but I got in to BCC for Fall 2017 with a 3.86 cumulative GPA/4.0 in sciences & a 79.3 TEAS. We're the first class apparently with the TEAS so there was no previous class to compare to. Good luck! :)

    I don't think they gave an official list of the books we need yet except for Fundamentals of Nursing I which we need to bring with us for orientation. The book is by Judith Wilkinson & it's 3rd edition. I found it on amazon & rented it for 16 bucks. & @ pureanea thanks for the info! def gonna look into that place :)

    Ugh. Spending so much on books hurts .. it's so awful. & Where did you do your CPR? I was certified already but of course it's expired so I need to take care of that ASAP.

    Teas test

    I felt that there were a bunch of questions on the actual test that were similar to the questions from the practice test you buy off the ATI website.
  12. I got in for fall 2017 on my first try with a 79.3% TEAS, 3.78 cumulative GPA & 4.0 GPA in sciences.

    Definitely :) my name is Marta -- excited and anxious for orientation. A girl I know from my gym graduated last May from the program told me she was ready to quit after their orientation so that should be fun haha. & I haven't heard anything further from Bergen but I got an email from the background check company with the results on Friday. I submitted mine on 4/17 though so give yours another day or 2 and I'm sure you'll hear back.

    Hey guys, I just checked my web advisor .. my admission status changed from "ready to test" to "minimum credentials reviewed". I'm not sure what that means but ...
