    Was RN school easy for you?

    PLEASE DON'T ANSWER IF IT WAS HARD FOR YOU. I keep hearing about how hard nursing school is. Well, I know that, or everyone would go and pass! I need to hear some positive stories! Have you heard of Hypnobirthing? One suggestion is to block out the negative stories that people always offer up so that that doesn't become YOUR reality. Please share with me what you enjoyed about nursing school and HOW you made it easy for YOU! Thanks in advance!

    LPN to RN without the bridge option

    Thanks for this! I started a post a few days ago wondering if the LPNs going into the bridge seemed to have it easier or not because of their experience. I'm a LPN going into a full 2 yr program and people are all about scaring the crap out of students, so I was just trying to get an idea of what it would be like going in with some experience under my belt.

    RN school easier for LPNs?

    If you took classes with LPNs (schools that bridge in LPNs will add the LPNs to the 2nd years of the RN program), do you feel the LPNs caught on a little easier to the information? I'm an LPN going into a RN program and I'm looking for any gleam of hope that I will have a leg up on getting through my RN program. My program only allows ONE fail in 2yrs (long story, I got my LPN in a different state then I'll be going to school in so I'm doing a full 2 yrs) and all scores have to be above a 79%. I'm trying my best to convince myself that I will be ok.

    Was RN school easy for you?

    Thank you. I keep seeing people say instructors "had it out" for them. I've never experienced this in my many years of pre-reqs (it took foreveeeer lol), I wonder why some people think that. Like, what would be a clue? Lol

    Tacoma Community College Fall 2019

    For the ladies that got in, in fall, I'm curious...what did you guys do during orientation? I'm just wondering why it's a full day.

    Tacoma Community College Fall 2019

    Hi Britt, so because of the new requirements, a lot of people didn't qualify for the original July deadline. Everyone that qualified got in! (Unless they declined and went elsewhere). So even though we all got in, they did still do the lottery to decide if we got fall or winter. If there is room for you all in Winter, I have no clue why they would still need to do the lottery. They are pretty strict about the deadlines, so I doubt more people applied...are you still in the waiting period where those two people that were ineligible could challenge it why they are ineligible (basically bring proof that they are eligible)? That may be it. I think one or 2 people got re-added to our list while we were waiting too.

    I'm pretty sure fall starts the 23? I could be wrong. I'm winter start, so I have some breathing room.

    Thanks, I was wondering exactly this. I'm going to try to catch a black Friday sale and get a smaller laptop then what I have. Mine is pretty big and heavy.

    VANEEP - ULTIMATE GUIDE

    Was this a standard form or something you created? They really want my letter to say "unconditionally". My current letter simply says I'm accepted, but they said it would be "stronger" if it says unconditionally.

    VANEEP/EISP

    Anyone complete the VANEEP recently? I have some questions out to the ONE person they have working on the packets but I'm sure she is swamped and I want to make sure I have everything before it's too late. So if you've recently done one, maybe you can help me. What did you use/what was accepted for "validation of program costs"? Are there instructions/requirements for the mentor? Do they have to go to my school? Be from my work? Thanks for any help!

    Tacoma Community College Fall 2019

    It's officially official! lol I got my letter today. I don't know if other winter letters will go out today or not, but I let her know I needed mine for the scholarship I'm applying for. I can relax and celebrate now!

    Tacoma Community College Fall 2019

    Well, that sucks. Thursday is my only day off during the week and I work 7am-530pm I'll figure something out. Hopefully we'll just hear from her on Tuesday
  14. EV1518

    Tacoma Community College Fall 2019

    Well, it's good to know she's off Monday. If I don't hear anything Tuesday, I'll call Wednesday. If nothing, go in Thursday. Yea, you would think it wouldn't be an issue if you stayed in winter and it's not your fault if she wasn't there today or Monday for you to reach her. They should have a back up person so she doesn't have to do everything. Hopefully she'll get your email first thing before she moves your spot or anything. I was just curious, your email...did it say you'll receive an official offer in the mail? Does it give you program start and expected end date?

    Tacoma Community College Fall 2019

    Yea, I was thinking I'll try to go up there Thursday. If I haven't gotten anything by then, then a visit is definitely warranted. I work 10hr shifts, so Thursday is the first day that I have available. I'm trying to be patient and understanding that Theresa has a lot on her plate, but with this deadline for my scholarship, I need to look out for me.

    I emailed her too with a question regarding the acceptance letter (I have two weeks to complete my application for the scholarship at my work), haven't heard a thing. And I just tried calling and no answer.

    Still waiting on official acceptance letter/email. They've opened up a special application period for more applicants for Winter. Katie, did she offer you fall yet?
  18. EV1518

    Tacoma Community College Fall 2019

    Maybe you moved up when I declined! I hate that she seems to be so inconsistent at times. I can't wait to get it in writing! I have 2 friends and an aunt that are ready to celebrate and I'm just like...yes, this is a step forward, but I want to see it in writing! lol

    Tacoma Community College Fall 2019

    Yes! It's such a relief to know 100%!
  20. EV1518

    Tacoma Community College Fall 2019

    Just got a call! I'm Winter, but alternate 3 IF I wanted fall. I told her I'd like to keep Winter. And I asked when she thinks she'll get the letters out, she said she'll try for tomorrow morning! I was so worried something was wrong. And I asked if they would cancel winter or something like that if they didn't have enough students. She said definitely not. If anything they would hold a special lottery or something like that. I can breath a little! Still waiting though lol
  21. EV1518

    Tacoma Community College Fall 2019

    I had the same thought, "what time did she start sending letters yesterday?" lol
  22. EV1518

    Tacoma Community College Fall 2019

    How are you holding up? lol I just keep waiting for it to pop up at any time.
  23. EV1518

    Tacoma Community College Fall 2019

    I thought Highline was still accepting applications until the end of August? Oh, I see that's for Winter! Nevermind lol
  24. EV1518

    Tacoma Community College Fall 2019

    lol I was giving her today since she doesn't have to do denial or waitlist letters. I was going to call tomorrow. I think fall is full Is that what you needed? Miracles can happen! And there may be people that decline Fall, so a spot may open up. If you do indeed get Winter, just let her know that if a spot opened up you'd be interested in it for Fall. They claim you can't switch quarters but with such a low cohort, maybe they will allow it

    On a positive note, it's good to know people in the quarter ahead of us! You guys can give us a heads up on which classes and teachers are the toughest lol
