    San Antonio College RN Program Spring 2021

    @SummerSea sooo much information, I'm going to check that out, thank you! I have wide awkward feet too and I got some wide Reeboks. I use Altra shoes for jogging and they have lots of wide shoes. I'm not sure about scrubs, hopefully we will find out soon. @Gennaveeee1 I think the link got removed 😕 @JadeNP congratulations! Which track are you doing, generic?

    San Antonio College RN Program Spring 2021

    Hi again, everyone! How's it going - has it all sunk in yet? I'm pretty excited!! Looking forward to knocking out all the enrollment steps when they send us our packets next week. My CPR and first aid certifications expired so I'll have to find somewhere in San Antonio to re-do those trainings asap. I am pretty sure my vaccines are all good to go though. How are you all preparing? I bought some shoes for clinicals. I already had this pair of shoes, so I know they can be comfy for lots of hours on my feet... but I just had to get them in all black 🙂

    San Antonio College RN Program Spring 2021

    LOL, I searched the older posts too but didn't pay attention to the date, nice observation hey, as far as san antonio nursing programs go, here's what I've heard: - avoid Galen (was told this by my pre-req professors) - UIW... super expensive, can get the same credential (RN) for much less - Texas Lutheran... good program but also too expensive - SAC... most affordable and long standing history - BSHP... lots of good reviews of this program, same associates degree as SAC but more expensive, advantage is the hospital affiliation and great clinical rotations -UTHSCSA... lots more pre requisites and application requirements but challenging program My questions are: Is SAC your first choice for nursing school? If yes, why? If not, why not? And where else have you applied? What are your impressions of the other programs?... I am really interested in SAC but don't know any nursing students who go there. Otherwise I'd ask them all about their experiences.

    Hi futurenurse00! Here is a link to their PDF of admission criteria: https://www.alamo.edu/siteassets/sac/academics/programs/nursing/admission-policy---oct-2019-update.pdf It includes info on GPA and TEAS scores. They use a point system to score applications. Hope this helps!
  9. Hi everyone! I'm starting this discussion for anyone interested and applying for SAC's Spring 2021 semester. This is for the nursing program in San Antonio, Texas. Drop in and say hello!!
  10. Hi Allisonarr! Did you apply for the morning or evening program? Thanks for the advice, Bougielou! I emailed them this morning.
  11. Yep, I've heard positive things about BSHP too. UTHSCSA is a great backup plan! I went to one of their info sessions and checked their admissions requirements - I’m short one Chemistry course. Just curious, have you emailed the admissions advisor at BSHP to confirm if they received your application and supporting materials? Their auto-response email after submitting the online application says to email them. How soon after submitting your application did you reach out by email? My CPR certification expired recently. Do you have any suggestions on where to take it? I want to try and get that taken care of soon.
  12. That's a quick turn around time with admissions decisions! SAC takes a while. I hear'ya on the NCLEX pass rates. That's my biggest concern with SAC. I was just looking at the NCLEX pass rates on the TX BON website and SAC is consistently lower than BSHP. Considering cost, BSHP is much more expensive than SAC for an associate's degree. From what I've heard, the clinical placements with BSHP are good because they are part of the Baptist Health System. Hmm... A LOT to consider if we are offered admission. Are you applying anywhere else?
  13. I didn't see a thread either, thanks for starting one! I almost didn't apply to BSHP because two of my scheduled TEAS exams got cancelled during covid closures. Then I saw that they pushed the deadline from June 1 to July 1 and decided to keep trying. I took my TEAS this morning and my total score was 90.7%. I got all A's except an 83 on the science. As soon as I got home I did my application and ordered my transcripts. I'm not sure how I feel about my application because I don't know what competitive TEAS scores and GPAs are for this school. I got a B in Microbiology, B in A&P 1, and A in A&P 2. Guess I will just wait and see. I think they have more spots available for daytime students. I also submitted an application for San Antonio College for Spring 2021.
  14. Is this for Baptist School of Health Professions? I submitted my application today. Did you apply for the evening program or daytime? I applied for evening.
