  1. Hi - I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the TGH Critical Care Rotation Program or the ICUs at TGH? I am a new BSN grad and have been accepted into the ICU orientation program. I ask because I am slightly apprehensive about diving straight into critical care...but I think that is a good thing. I trust in the program as well as the process. Just hoping to find someone who has gone through it in the past. Thanks!!!
  2. I have a couple of questions about becoming a nurse in the Navy. I spent 5 years in the Navy as a Petty Officer Second Class. Now that I am out, I have a year left in a BSN program in Florida. I am very interested in getting back into the Navy as a nurse. I've seen a couple of flyers around school talking about joining the Navy immediately after graduating. I've also read on Allnurses that some people recommend getting a year or two of experience and then trying to get a commission. I also remember reading that you have more options in the Air Force if you get some experience first. Does anyone have any advice on this subject? I know it takes a while to get a packet together. Just wanted to know if I should call a recruiter and get the process started now or get some experience first Thanks in advance!
  3. Long story short, our LTC clinical site backed out at the last minute. We are now going to an ortho floor instead. Our clinical starts next week. Can you give me an idea of what to expect? I'm in an accelerated program and have only been in school for about a month. Everything is still very, very new. Thanks for the help!

    Did everyone else have to pay another time for fingerprints once you have an appointment?

    Did you hear that from UCF or CastleBranch? I am almost positive I'm overreacting, but I don't want something little to mess anything up.

    I am in the same boat. I submitted the waiver as soon as I read the email on Friday; it still is pending review. My email also said UCF must receive it by the 16th and it may take 3-5 days. I'm freaking out a little too since I already turned down my other acceptance offers.

    I know it's still early, but has anyone heard anything about financial aid? My wife and I are really hoping to get some sort of loans.

    Thanks for the tip! I think I may have finally figured it out. Also, anyone else having problems getting their background and fingerprints done. I submit the verification form to CastleBranch as soon as I got the email. My account still say "Pending Review." Is this happening to anyone else??

    I did accept the offer, however, I am still unable to join the group (even with my UCF email). Anyone else having that problem?

    Lanntis - Thank you again for answering our questions. If accepted, what would our weekly schedule be like? I remember you saying the clinical times can vary, but what about lectures and labs?

    Lanntis - Thank for answering all these questions. What are some good areas of Orlando to live in? Also, what is the traffic situation like around town?

    Since we have to wait for a decision to be made, I have a question - Does anyone know what the schedule for classes/clinicals is like? I'm wondering how feasible it would be to work a part time job if I'm accepted.

    Applied on Jan. 3 and still missing the prerequisite check as well. On a side note - has anyone heard anything about the program? I've been able to connect with students at other schools to get some "gouge" on what to expect. Unfortunately, I haven't made contact or heard from other UCF students. Just wondering if anyone else has heard anything.

    Looks like we have the same green checks on our applications. I submitted a transfer petition months ago. They were all accepted so I'm not too worried. I have been accepted to UMiami. I only want programs that start in May.

    I did. I applied yesterday and am anxiously waiting for them to finish reviewing it. Have you applied to UCF? Also, are you applying anywhere else?

    Hopefully that is the case. Only a few more days until the application opens!!
