    Help getting kicked out have a 4.0

    Contact the program director and/or whoever is in charge of that area right now and explain your situation and tell them you will submit the TB test as soon as possible. If you already have it submit it now. If not then get the test done as soon as you can, if can get it done tomorrow that would be even better. I was a few days late in submitting an antibody titer for clinical and I contacted one of the faculity members and submitted a petition. It was approved and I wasn't kicked out, so don't assume the worst. They may be lenient, especially since you finished you already first semester

    ASU Traditional BSN Spring 2019

    The application deadline is coming up and I haven't seen a thread like this yet for traditional BSN at ASU for spring 2019, so I thought I'd make one to see if anyone on here is applying. I'm applying from California as a competitive transfer with a 3.92 GPA and 87.3 TEAs score giving me an advancement score of 1.85. What are everyone else's stats? And does anyone know about how many direct admits there are and how many seats are open for competitive applicants? I saw there are 64 total spots available.

    ASU BSN Spring 2019

    That's good to hear! I'm trying to not think about it but the time frame for when we get decisions is coming up and I want to know already!!

    ASU BSN Spring 2019

    I'm hoping we'll find out in a week- 2 weeks from now! I have no idea about the book pack but I personally would buy it just to be safe. Nursing school is supposed to be reading heavy! And even if you arent assigned the reading its good to have the books as reference. Where is the link to the book bundle? I've actually never heard about that yet

    SFSU BSN Sp19 App

    CSU Chico Spring 2019

    I applied but I didn't calculate my points. My gpa is high but my TEAS score is 87.3 so I'm not too hopeful, but fingers crossed
  13. brivsac

    ASU BSN Spring 2019

    I tried making a thread about this last month and didn't get any replies haha. I applied with a 1.85 as a transfer. I have my fingers crossed there will be competitive seats open this cycle! Are you guys applying as direct admits or transfers?

    CSULB BSN Spring 2019

    I'm applying for the spring 2019 semester too but I haven't calculated my score yet. I'm applying to a few other CSUs plus Arizona State. I honesly don't think I have a very good chance of getting into any CA schools but I'm going to give it a shot. My gpa is around 3.9 and TEAs score is 87.3 but I have no idea if that's high enough. I have volunteer hours too but I haven't checked to see if csulb accepts volunteer work

    Tips for the teas 6 exam

    If you can afford it, get the smartprep study material on the ati website! It goes into much more detail then the study book and has 2 quizes for each section and pre tests for each subject. Its a life saver for the science because without it it will be hard to know what to study

    FON 241?

    I am planning on taking FON 241 at Rio Salado and am unsure in whether to take the 8 week or 14 week class. I heard the midterm and final are proctored, is this in both the 8 week and 14 week class? I also heard it is a hard class, would I be better off taking the 14 week class? If I can I'd like to get it done with and do the 8 week version but I worry about the difficulty level. If anyone who took the class could give me adivce I would really appreciate it! Thanks!

    FON 241?

    Nevermind, ignore my comment above. I just saw your other reply and you said you took it at Mesa
  18. brivsac

    FON 241?

    Did you take it at Rio?
  19. brivsac

    FON 241?

    I've taken A&P and a nutrition class before so that's good to hear. I may check out Mesa just to be safe because I'll be taking both HCR 230 and 240 8 week classes at the same time and I hear it's easier there. But that's good to know someone didn't struggle in the class at Rio, I'll still consider taking it there.
  20. brivsac

    FON 241?

    I'm considering taking it with a different school too. Is it better at Chandler Gilbert?

    Rio Salado FON 241?

    I am planning on taking FON 241 at Rio Salado and am unsure in whether to take the 8 week or 14 week class. I heard the midterm and final are proctored, is this in both the 8 week and 14 week class? I also heard it is a hard class, would I be better off taking the 14 week class? I will also be taking HCR 230 and 240 around the same time. If anyone who took the class could give me adivce I would really appreciate it! Thanks!

    HCR 240 prerequisite

    Did anyone who took HCR 240 at Rio Salado complete A&P or microbio at a different college? I took both classes at a different college, got an A in both, submitted my prerequisite approval form but I can't seem to enroll. Other prereqs I need for other classes at this school have been approved and I can't get any help from calling the school about this. I'm wondering if those prereqs have to be done at Rio? I can't think of any other reason I'm not able to enroll. Did anyone else have trouble with this?
  23. brivsac

    HCR 240 prerequisite

    Thank you both! I've been calling the past few days and am geting the run around. I'll try the advisment number

    Clincial Advice?

    I have just recently started clinical for my CNA class. I enjoy most of it so far, the residents are angels but I feel like a burden on the CNAs and nurses. Whenever the CNA I'm partnered with goes on lunch or break, I'm left alone and told to answer call lights. The problem is we're still new and I don't know how to do/am not allowed to do most of the things the residents want. Some examples: one woman I responded too had dementia and couldn't speak. I tried but I could not figure out what she wanted. I got a nurse and within 15 seconds of talking to the resident she figured out that she just wanted to know the time! Another time I responded to a call light, a man wanted to be transferred from his wheelchair to his bed. Students are not allowed to transfer alone, so I went to look for a CNA. I found one, told him what the man needed, and he told me to wait. Once he was able to help me we went into the residents room...and the resident could pretty much get into bed himself, he just had to have someone with him. I felt so stupid! I made the resident wait and I bothered a busy CNA to pretty much help me with nothing! Another time when my CNA was on lunch one of my classmates told me a resident in a isolated room(I'm not allowed to go in that room) that my CNA was assigned to needed to be changed. I told her I cant go in there and we had to find an RNA to tell her. That same time when my partner was on lunch I was responding to call lights and a woman wanted to be turned. I couldn't do it alone and didn't feel comfotable attempting it by myself because I didn't want to hurt the resident. Once again, I had to hunt down a different CNA for help. She was busy and said the resident would have to wait until my partner got back from lunch. Later, a nurse asked me to help her change a dressing on the same resident. Right as we were about to turn her, a CNA came to help. The resident said she'd rather have the CNA turn her instead of me (completely understandable) I stepped aside to help/observe when the CNA told me to take my lunch. I asked if Incould stay and observe real quick then take my lunch and she said "no, you need to go". I understand that the CNAs are probably going to be annoyed no matter what with all us students running around with them, but I don't want to make it worse for them by always asking for help! My instructor is always nowhere to be found and even if I scour the entire facility I still can't find her. When I'm left alone I try to ask other CNAs if they need help so I'm not just standing aroun and they always seem annoyed, and if I get call lights I can't even help the resident half of the time and have to get someone else! I don't need my hand held when I'm left alone, and I wish I could just do things myself but I'm not even allowed to do most of it alone. What can I do to not bother the CNAs so much? I want tto he a help to them, not an annoyance. Also any tips on what I could do when left alone? I try to do nail care, brush hair, or just tak to the residents but most of them are asleep. This is kind of making me anxious for clinical every morning and I'd rather be able to actually focus on learning skills and not constntly runnig around trying to find an already busy person to bother.
