    San Joaquin Delta College ADN Spring 2021

    I totally understand. Also, there is another program called WorkNet that they will offer you. You will get information with your packet soon. I highly suggest signing up for that if possible. It is income based but definitely helps. They will help pay for books, stethoscope, shoes, etc. if you qualify. No problem at all! I understand how you feel as I have 2 kids of my own that are still pretty little, so it is tough. See what I mentioned above about WorkNet. It's a great program if you qualify and definitely helps with the financial strain. Of course!

    San Joaquin Delta College ADN Spring 2021

    Orientation was done over zoom about a week before the semester started. Don't feel bad, I don't mind helping at all! My situation was a little different since I was added to the program late. I had to do all of the background stuff (titers, drug test, order books and uniform, etc.) as fast as possible whereas they will give you guys around a month, if not more. I don't think there is anything really to do ahead of time. You will switch classes every 8 weeks and will have different clinical sites every semester. So for the first 8 weeks, we had Fundamentals and now we have Med Surg (you will get a separate grade for both). I would say go into it not with the goal of getting A's. I know we all are used to getting A's or else we wouldn't even be able to get into the program but nursing school is a whole other situation. You have to have a 75% at the end of each 8 week class to move onto the next one. It sounds like no big deal but it is not easy. Especially that first 8 weeks. A lot of people barely passed and we lost 3 people in our cohort. However, once you get past those first 8 weeks, you are locked in and they will give you plenty of times to remediate if you get below that in the future. You just have to make it the first 8 weeks. Also, you will have to adjust your way of studying. There is no way possible that you can do all of the work we have. Right now we have about 40 chapters to read in a week and a half, 50+ quizzes, videos to watch and lectures to watch. And that's just for your Thursday/Friday class. So, you kind of have to learn how to focus on what to study on (something that I'm still figuring out). I did not take HS 95 because by the time I added, it had already started. Honestly though, there is so much work to do that I wouldn't have taken it anyway. How it works now is that on Mondays, we either go to campus and learn a skill (catheters, feeding tubes, etc.) or we stay at home and watch a video learning the skill and then record ourselves doing the skill and upload it to be graded. Tuesdays and Wednesday we have clinicals (for the first 3 weeks, you don't have clinicals but will have skills on campus). Thursdays and Fridays we either have a zoom lecture or we have a recorded lecture that we do on our own time. Think of it as 3 different classes almost. Skills, clinicals, and lecture. I think it's challenging right now because of Covid. The professors say that if it wasn't for Covid, we would be on campus a lot more and take a lot more time learning skills, etc. Unfortunately due to Covid, we can only be on campus 10-20 at a time and are taught a lot of skills in a very short period. It's OK though. You'll learn a ton at clinicals. I hope this helps. Feel free to ask any other questions you may have!

    You are correct. I got confirmation on this yesterday. The 20 for St. Joe's are for current employees of St. Joe's. But you would qualify for either regular or fast track. The 20 spots that you wouldn't qualify for are St. Joe employees through their program. You would either qualify for the fast track or regular.

    Right now we have to be on campus on Mondays from 8-11, Tuesdays and Wednesdays we have clinicals at the hospital from 6:30-2:30 and Thursdays and Fridays we usually have lecture over zoom from 10-12:30. Of course this can all change depending on Covid. I guess they said normally we would have lecture on campus for 5 hours but with Covid they're limiting the time we spend together. Yep, that's what I've been told so far. 60 regular and 20 for fastrak 🙂

    Hey guys! I just wanted to say good luck and don't get too hung up on the points you're applying with. I am a 1st-semester student in the program and was initially 15th on the waiting list with 70 points. They actually called me the first day of the semester as they had someone drop out and I got in. Then they added 2 more people a week later who were further down the waiting list. There is only 40 in our cohort but I've heard they will be accepting 80 for Spring (top 20 for fast track). So, even if you end up on the waitlist, don't give up hope!

    Nothing so far. I haven't contacted them at all though. I'm hoping we do hear back by September 1st.

    A&P in 6 weeks, along with 13 other credits?

    I think it's definitely doable but it will be a lot of work. I took A & P 2 in 8 weeks as a night class along with English. I did well in both, but I was constantly studying for A & P as we had an exam around every 9 days or so on a specific body system. If you think you can handle it along with your other classes, I say go for it. I do think you need to have both A & P classes for the TEAS. When I took the TEAS, it was question heavy on the cardiovascular system which is covered in A & P 2 (at least at my school). Good luck!

    Aww, I'm sorry! I'm down there too. I'm guessing they won't have many decline their spot since other schools have acceptances on hold. Oh well, more applying I go. Good luck!

    I emailed the health services department last night and heard back about a half-hour ago. I'm curious how many they'll let in.

    Hey everyone, for those who are on the alternate list, I heard back from them today and I am #15 on the list. So, it sounds like they have a pretty good amount on the alternate list as well. Did anyone else find out what number they are?

    San Joaquin Delta College Fall 2020 ADN

    I'll let you guys know when/if I hear back. Hopefully, they do go far down through the alternate list again, but I'm concerned not many people will be declining due to schools like ARC and MJC waiting on acceptance. Oh well, just gotta go with the flow.

    Oh for sure! That's a lot better. CONGRATS to everyone who got in! I emailed to see where I am on the alternate list. Hopefully, I hear back tomorrow. 🤞
