    Los Medanos Fall 2019

    @Jordelorde I did not have to pay before, during or after where LMC will need a copy of your transcript with your numerical score for each of the three modules in lieu of the certificates. I hope this helps out and congratulations on your acceptance!

    Los Medanos Fall 2019

    I just wanted to let all the acceptees and alternates know that once you complete all the forms and upload all your supporting documentation and fill out all your dates for immunization on ImmuniTrax the process seemed to be quite quick. For example, I waited until I had everything in hand before starting the process and submitted everything this past Monday right before midnight and I just got the below pending approval email which points to just a three-day turnaround which is quite fast considering all the paperwork ImmuniTrax needed to process. But just to make the process as easy as possible I did try and organize everything exactly the way ImmuniTrax asked separating out CPR, Physical Exam (including self-assessment), PPD, Titer and Vaccine paperwork along with any supporting documentation for each of these requirements erring on the side of providing them with more information than less. In the end, I think waiting to upload everything at one time when you are completely finished is probably the easiest way to go so they do not have to touch back with you and vice versa.

    In reply to Jordelorde I have attached the cover letter (contact information redacted) from the welcome packet which lists the many documents and deadlines that are coming up in August 2019 which I hope helps out everyone and again congratulations to all the acceptees and good luck to all the alternates.

    VerifyStudents.com by CorporateScreening.com were really helpful and responsive in resolving this issue within 12 hours of my support request email so if for some reasons you have any issues, website or otherwise going through this process it looks like they will be resolved quickly. Incidentally, I had my drug screening test and the whole process took about two hours mostly due to waiting even though I got there quite early at 8:00 AM especially since drug screening test do not start until 9:00 AM so plan on blocking extra time. This drug screening was quite a bit more formal following federal guidelines than one I had for employment a few years ago where you are asked to acknowledge, initial and sign your name at various steps, assets and forms which takes you back a bit while it is going on, but all in all everything went smoothly if you blocked out enough time.
  11. Thanks for posting these great resources which are quite helpful. Along these lines, does anybody use any online nursing study resources pointed out here among other articles and web searches? NRSNG Scrubcheats NCLEX RN Mastery Studystack Nursing Picmonic UWorld Epocrates Some of these programs are quite expensive so it would be great to get some real-world advice on what works best not only for studying in nursing school but for preparing for the NCLEX too, what do you think?
  12. I found this to be true when I was taking the Nutrition and Statistics prerequisites for the UCSF MEPN program this past Spring 2019 at DVC where I always performed several points higher when I just slowed down a couple of days before a test and got as much sleep as possible. The preparatory work is great, but your actual performance will be determined on the examination and not by working and reworking problems or studying the material over and over again or so it seemed for me in these two classes. But with my acceptance into the LMC RN program, I will wait and apply to an MSN program after I work as an RN and get a little bit of experience under my belt. Along these lines, I came across this wonderful TED2019 April 2019 talk Sleep is Your Superpower where Matt Walker author of Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams Scribner (2017) talks about the importance of sleep in preparing your brain to learn and write those memories after you learn. So what is the consensus on getting more sleep before a test, helpful or hurtful?

    I just checked my email and saw that VerifyStudents.com by CorporateScreening.com sent an email which I have attached which listed contact information for Client Support at 800-229-8606 or email at CustomerService@CorporateScreening.com so I just sent them an email explaining the error.

    I went through VerifyStudents.com by CorporateScreening.com for the Background Check, Drug Screening Test, and ImmuniTrax Process (BG / DS / IMM) and received this "An error has occurred with search preparation. Please try again later or contact Corporate Screening." I called their Corporate Headquarters at 800-229-8606 and left a voicemail so hopefully, I will hear back in the next day or so. Did anybody else experience any problems with the website?

    Los Medanos Fall 2019

    For my first post, I wanted to thank Nurmimi87 for starting this thread on January 17, 2019. I ran across allnurses while preparing for the LMC administered TEAS VI on June 12, 2019, but only found a thread for 2018 at that time and not 2019. I picked up my LMC Fall 2019 RN Program Admissions Packet this past Monday and was wondering if anybody has gone through the packet and started working through all of the requirements? On another note, I second Jordelorde in saying if you are on the alternate list your chances of getting in are great as I believe it was BethAnn who said prior to administering the TEAS VI that they had gone through the entire Alternate for Fall 2018 and even admitted an alternate after classes had started so keep believing! So again, congratulations to all those making it through the LMC RN Program Phase II Accepted and Alternate lists.
