    I am in the FB group too! But I want to keep this thread up just so future applicants can stalk us. lol I am hanging in there. Word is that the last group got notified of acceptance just 10 days post closing. Today is day 10 technically. I am trying not to get excited at every new TCC email notification, but it's happening already.

    400! Woooooow. And there are still three days left to get apps in. Crazy! I have read a few of the 2019 threads in here and definitely saw people with two Bs getting in with high HESI scores. I know it depends on the applicant pool, but I think you've got good chances. 96 is amazing!

    Can I Be a Nurse?

    I wouldn't give up just yet. Math can be learned. Get your GED, and then enroll at a community college in your area and talk to an adviser. You will need to take some basic math courses first before you can take the college level math courses required of a nursing program, and I have never heard of a CC not offering plenty of basic math classes and tutors for people in the exact situation you are in. Take advantage of the resources available to you, because there are plenty. With math, there is usually an "a-ha" moment when everything finally clicks. Also, look up the professor ratings online, make sure you sign up for classes with effective professors, it makes all the difference. Everyone needs to start somewhere! Good luck

    Yes! I am taking a full load of classes for the same reason, lol. I am taking Math 1332, sociology, English 1302, and History this semester. These classes also apply towards the BSN, so it's good to get them out the way now before we are busy with the nursing classes. Trying to think positively, here

    Hi LoveVy, welcome. I think your HESI score puts you in there! Are you taking any classes this Fall semester? I can't believe we have an entire month to wait.

    Which job would you take?

    I have personally gone from a 10 minute commute, to an hour long commute (for a former non-nursing job, I'm just a nursing student at this point). Let me tell you...it sucked! It adds two hours to your workday, and fighting traffic makes you mentally exhausted. I wasn't happy when I got home, I wasn't happy waking up in the morning knowing I had to drive for an hour. I'd take the second job in a heartbeat. Plus, you get guaranteed holidays at home with the kids? Make those memories!

    It said that my Spring 2020 nursing application had been received and processed, that no further information was needed, and to check emails the end of September / early October for notification. This was sent to my TCC email addy.

    Yes. Did you turn yours in? I turned my app in last week. The lady in the office reviewed it right then and there, and I received a confirmation a few days ago. I need September to go by quickly!

    Why is there a 7 year limit on prerequisites for nursing?

    With nursing, you are dealing with people's lives. The anatomy and physiology knowledge needs to be fresh. On the other hand, if someone has a math degree they haven't used in 10 years, no one is going to die because they forgot how to graph a differential equation. With that said though, every school I have looked at in Texas has a five year limit on science courses, but most schools waive that requirement if you have been actively working in the medical field for several years.

    Thank you! I remember getting an email on this. I definitely plan on getting my BSN after graduating from TCC. I've only looked at details for UTA so far. How is everyone's progress going? I have one more week of micro and lifespan, then I am DONE with all the gen ed classes and the required pre-reqs.

      Hey! I am finishing up my pre-reqs for a ADN program right now. I have also taken several core classes towards my BSN, as well.  I just have one more class to go, Microbiology, which I am starting next week...it's a short 5-week term. I have to apply to my school by August 30...and the class ends Aug 8! I am cutting things a little close, but I have a good feeling about it all  🙂

      Also - don't even think for a second that you are a below average student! This is my second go-round at college. My first attempt at college (long long ago, lol) was a major FLOP.  Once you get serious about your career, though...you get serious, even if it means studying every free minute of every day!

      thanks for that word;) I hope that works for me! as well !!

      but going back to school is scaring me to death at present I'm preparing for IELTS EXAM I have a long long way journey like traveling to Mars.

      so many requirements just to get into pre-nursing college. that might take me a year to get into pre-nursing only,

      Meanwhile trying to figure it out if I can find a good college as I do not want to waste a minute...lol 🙂

      that's great that ur being ready for both i hope you get a good grade in that, good luck!!
