    El Centro / NLC Fall 2019

    It seems like a lot but if you have them all on hand like that it should be a breeze. So for Castle Branch - you select the package and then register (Fall ADN Northlake) and pay $25 for access. Then yes, I just scanned my immunizations in after I went to my PCP to get them. There is a button for you to upload each requirement (so save them all to your computer at 1 time then upload 1 by 1) If for some reason Castle Branch doesn't accept it, it will say "Denied" next to it and it will also have feedback for why it was denied by the Castle Branch staff. No problem!

    That sounds great, and simple too! Yummmmmm I love red beans and rice, is it homemade? I've never tried to make it at home!

    We actually go through Castle Branch now. The PDF I added to this thread is the most updated ADN packet. Part E in the PDF has a link where you can go to select the Castle Branch Fall Compliance Tracker package. When I sent my immunizations in, some were completed the same day and it took no longer than 4 days for me to be completely compliant in their system.

    Yeah I don't expect it to be easy but it will be doable. Good luck on your search!

    El Centro / NLC Fall 2019

    Hey everyone! I am in the Spring 2019 ADN program starting next week. Good luck to all of you - if you haven't had a chance to check out the ADN packet here is the link: https://www.elcentrocollege.edu/cd/dcc/Health/Documents/ECC/packets/adn_packet_219_final.pdf This was updated Dec 17, 2018 and pages 5 and 8-10 detail how the points are awarded. Best of luck to you all!

    Advice would be appreciated :)

    I think the only thing that could hinder you would be the herniated disc - for the RN program I'm in we had to get a complete physical. But, if your doctor clears you on the physical you shouldn't have any problems! Just be careful when lifting patients in clinicals!

    Yessss, they sell Ezekiel bread with no sodium at Sprouts it's delicious! I usually make my tuna with chopped radishes, onion, pickles and jalapenos (lots of jalapeno juice too!) I don't like mayo so I just add a spoonful for binding and the picked juices for flavor. I will have experiment with my own shakes/smoothies. I've always said I prefer eating the food rather than drinking it but I see how much more convenient it is. Sweet potatoes sound amazing in the egg muffins, I will have to try that next. I usually only eat a plain baked sweet potato as a side, but never tried them in a recipe. I season my sweet potatoes with a blend of cinnamon, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper - it's so amazing! You have to try it! I usually mix the seasonings in a 1:1:2 ratio (because I like it spicy) It's also great to sprinkle on sliced sweet potatoes with a bit of olive oil and bake until crispy. Ah, yes - a dressed oatmeal is a great idea! I will definitely use that! Yum! I love chickpeas and tomatoes together - and that Hidden Valley Ranch Seasoning? The best! I will definitely throw that in my rotation! I don't think i've ever had soba noodles but your recipe sounds amazing. I like roasting chickpeas in the oven too! So good! Love all the snacks - I will have to try the kind bars - and the Iconic - I googled it and it just looks delicious! I am super excited to try it! Thanks for the heads up! I think so too! I'm going grocery shopping tonight - if I whip up or pick something tasty that would be great to pack I will be sure to share

    Advice would be appreciated :)

    I think going the LVN-RN route would be a great idea for you, or even CNA-LVN-RN. That way you can ace your courses that are geared toward healthcare, and be working in the healthcare setting. Also, every school has different cut offs so if you try A&P and Chem again and pass it's possible you could get in - just depends on where you stand in ranking with other applicants. I definitely recommend speaking to an advisor at your school after taking and passing A&P and Chem to see which program may suit your situation best.

    I've seen this on pintrest but have never attempted it - I will definitely have to try it though. Do you have any favorite mason jar salad recipes?

    Love this idea - How do you keep frozen until it's time to heat? I will have to see if we have a community fridge in our building. Thanks!

    I love leftovers too! I prefer to eat cold lunches or eat my food cold because I don't yet know about the availability of a microwave. Veggies and hummus is my go to snack along with string cheese! I really love Ezekiel Bread and hard boiled eggs too, maybe with an avocado! Yum. I also love a spicy tuna sandwich with lots of pickles and jalapenos. Never tried any of the flavored tunas but they seem great over salads. I am looking for more recipes for cold pasta salads. One of my favorites is chopped kale, chopped broccoli, chopped chicken, halved cherry tomatoes, and any cut of whole wheat pasta with mozzarella cheese, mixed with a good heap of pesto and olive oil. Sometimes I buy a rotisserie chicken to throw in there instead of boiling my own to save time. This will usually last me 2-3 meals plus a serving to eat once I finish making it. I plan on dropping by Sam's for prepackaged servings of nuts and maybe granola or low fat protein bars and string cheese. Do you have any other dry snacks to recommend? I think my biggest challenge will be getting in a hearty breakfast. My plan is to make egg muffins - I usually crack 12 eggs into a bowl and season with salt and pepper, then add chopped broccoli, tomatoes, green onion and spinach. Place in muffin tins and bake for 20 mins or so. Of course I have to do this all on a Sunday because I am not a morning person. A whole grain waffle seems like a good option too because I can grab it and eat it while i'm driving, that's why I need other breakfast options aside from my egg muffins lol. I was thinking of buying a low fat protein shake for mornings that i'm running late - do you have any recommendations or do you make your own shakes? Thanks you so much, I am excited to see what's in store!

    Hi all - I'm beginning my first semester of nursing school next week and plan on packing a lunch since I will be in the middle of downtown with limited quick/healthy options. Would anyone like to share their quick go to (semi) healthy and portable lunch ideas? If this is in the wrong forum, I can move it - just wanted to know if any fellow students would like to share here. Thank you all SO MUCH!
