    I was wondering if anyone is applying there and what are their total points/TEAS/etc.

    Need advice/ CC Debt

    I would just focus on school and just pay the minimum each month. Then once 11 months are up put all of it in the CC once you start working.

    How to be a better PCT/CNA

    Hi there, I just got hired at a hospital as a float pool CNA and I suffer from G.A.D and clinical depression (depression/anxiety well controlled by meds). I'm honestly terrified because although I was a caregiver for 5 years, I feel being a CNA is a whole new level. I have 2 more days of orientation and just thinking about it makes me cry. I guess I need help toughening up because I want to be an acute care NP in the near future. My first day was a disaster. My CNA orienter left me alone with a 5150 and she went AWOL. I was not supposed to be alone with a 5150 on the first day and everybody knew this CNA is "rude/condescending". Most of the nurses were very sweet to me but this CNA kinda made me have palpitations. My second day was much better with a new CNA orienter(sp?). I learned so much but I have trouble with time management and with my pyxis (we used this system we must use to get beside commode/toothbrush/etc). It is a teaching hospital so we get many new grads on the floor. I have the weekend orienting for evening shift. How do I better prepare myself with time management? I was in nursing school but failed out so I'm a little familiar with how CNA report goes. But I still never done an ostomy (clean/drain/whatever) before. I try to manage my anxiety but I hate that I get palpitations and my hands get shaky. I plan on doing this for 2 years then head to RN school. Any help/tips?

    THANK YOU! Yes, I’m taking an emt/CNA course then retake the TEAS again to boost my chances. I’m going to apply for Hartnell and Evergreen for Fall 2022 because I want to save up and have a lot of debt to pay still.

    Hi there, I recently moved to the South Bay Area from Los Angeles. I used to be in an RN program but failed out. I still would like to go for my RN but how do I make my application stronger? The schools I’m interested in are: Evergreen cc, hartnell cc, Cabrillo, Monterey, and Gavilan college so far.  I'm taking a cna class to be certified. After that I’m thinking of taking EMT to refresh my anatomy and physio and be certified. I don’t know if it’s worth repeating anatomy and physiology because currently I have  anatomy Grade B (taken in 2013) physio Grade B (Taken in 2014) micro grade A  I’ve also been an Medical assistant for 5 years. Any input is appreciated. I haven’t taken the TEAS 6 yet either I only taken version. 5

  9. Hi did you apply? I got my acceptance letter yesterday, they sent them out early because they are moving the start of the program to Summer (probably June), instead of Fall.

    College of the Canyons Spring 2020

    Yes I plan on applying a few RN and LVN programs. I’m more applying for the fall. Right now I’m thinking whether I should apply for a 27k tuition LVN program that’s has good hours or a cc LVN program. the 27k LVN program starts in July and I can save up. But it doesn’t have a skills lab. Which I want. the 6,500 tuition cc LVN program is I either in antelope valley or Pasadena and they’re both far but it’s cheap and I may transfer to the bridge LVN to Rn program because they get priority in application. It doesn’t start until like August.
  12. Hi there, Bakersfield adult school is one of the places I’m thinking of applying for the lvn program. Has anyone been to this program before?
