  1. Hello, I noticed on your feed that you are apart of the Abilene campus. How do you like it so far??

      Hi! I'm sorry for the late response. So far, it is great! The staff is very helpful and nice, they really want to see us succeed. I'm only one a little over a month into the program but so far so good 🙂 The campus is nice, we have our own sim lab where we get to practice our skills and a lunch room and study rooms. The only thing I don't like is how small and empty Abilene is lol cause I am from Dallas.. Are you looking into doing the accelerated program here?

      That’s awesome! I understand what you mean about small, especially compared to Dallas. I am trying for the summer program but I’m still waiting to see if I’m accepted or not.

    Anyone know a good website to buy a Littmann stethoscope from? I saw some on Amazon but read some bad reviews so not sure if I should buy one there or not

    Yeah that is why I am confused as to why I was offered so little.. I am wondering if that is the case for all of us. I am not married and considered a dependent. However, I do have fair credit score and open accounts with Wells Fargo. I guess I'll still give it a try and see if I qualify and also try to apply for scholarships.

    oh okay.. I have been looking into that as well because I have Wells Fargo but I am scared I won't qualify since I am not working full time. What is the limit for regular loan options with a first degree? I borrowed less than 10,000 for my first degree so I did not think it would impact my offer for my second degree. I went to the webtech and under the student tab there is a financial aid link and once you've clicked on it it gives you the option to view/accept your financial aid award. I meant that its under MyTech tab, sorry not the student tab

    I just got an update for FAFSA and I wasn’t offered much in loans.. how is everyone else paying for the program? I thought they would offer enough loans to cover the program I can tough it out for spring semester but will funding be this low each semester?

    I am feeling a roller coaster of emotions as well about not getting my first choice! But I am just grateful that I got in because nursing school is very competitive!
  10. Hey! How are you feeling about Abilene? I know you said it wasn’t your first choice. Are you having to relocate? 

    1. Jessica Corona

      Jessica Corona

      Hey! I am feeling very excited but also kind of sad that I didn’t get my first choice lol but I’m still extremely grateful and I knew what I was signing up for when I sent in my application. At this point I am willing to do whatever it takes to become a nurse so yes, I will be relocating to Abilene. It’s only for a year 🙂 How about you?

      Yeah for sure! We can make anything happen for a year. And honestly, Abilene has the nicest campus. It’s SO nice! I live like 1.5hrs west of Abilene, but my sister and brother-in-law are nurses and live there. So depending on our clinical schedules, I’ll just stay with them some during the week if needed!

      You’re right! And yes, I’ve heard a lot of good things about the Abilene campus so I’m just really excited!! 🙂 Oh okay, that’s good! I’m glad you have family there, I did hear from the current students that commuting is possible but with clinicals and tests it can get tough! So it’s good that you have somewhere to stay 🙂 I will have to find a permanent place to live over there but it’s okay!

    I applied to Dallas as my first choice and Abilene as my second! I would also like to know how many of us applied to each location lol

    Same! It sucks that it’s taking longer than it has the previous years I really hope it’s tomorrow.

    I got the IdenToGo link before I had my interview and I went ahead and got it done just so I wouldn’t have to worry about it later if I was accepted or so I could already have it for other nursing programs I plan to apply to if I don’t get in!

    Yeah you’re right, I’ll try not to overthink things! @atxmitch
