  1. ARC and SCC fall 2022

    In previous app cycles they would mark you as “qualified” so you don’t have to submit all the paperwork for the next open application period. You would only need to submit the letter they sent you indicating that you were qualified during the last ro...
  2. ARC and SCC fall 2022

    SCC acceptances went out. Got my email for fall 2022 @ 12:26.
  3. Sierra College Fall 2022

    Congrats! I don’t know about uniform or piercing requirements. I imagine they will cover it in orientation.
  4. Sierra College Fall 2022

    Did anyone get an acceptance email?
  5. ARC and SCC fall 2022

    I got an acceptance email. I figured they sent them to all the students selected bc signed docs are due next week.

    FYI... Some acceptance emails were sent from Sierra college.
  7. ARC and SCC fall 2022

    I submitted my app online and mailed it in the first week of Feb. According to my tracking number, my ARC and SCC packets arrived on 2/5. My status for ARC and SCC have recently been changed to "application received". At least I know they got it. ...

    Someone on another forum got accepted today.
  9. ARC 2022

    I'm not sure how they've separated the batches but I physically turned in my app on 9.15 and my status updated to "application qualified" today around 4:00 p.m. Hope this helps. ?
  10. If you don't mind, I have a couple of questions about Sierra's program.  I was on the waitlist this past round, didn't start and now I'm guaranteed a spot for Fall 2022.  Needless to say, I'm anxious to start and I hear it's very intense so I want to start off on the right foot.  Since you started the program, can you recommend a general review manual or anything you wish you would've done before starting the program such as reviewing dosage calculations, pharmacology?

      I really appreciate you taking the time to respond to my inquiry.   I will absolutely look into that.  Also, as far as the uniform, did they require specific items such as brand of shoes, watch, stethescope?

      They have a uniform that you have to purchase from them. Expect to pay about $1200-$1400 on orientation for your uniform and books. You will need a stethoscope, medical scissors, pen light, shoes (all leather or synthetic material - no laces). You can buy a blood pressure cuff to practice taking a manual blood pressure now and outside of class, but you do not have to.

      Final question, I promise.  I am going to start buying a few items.  is there a color requirement for shoes or stethoscope?

  11. ARC 2022

    My status changed from “application submitted” to “application received” 3 days after I turned in my packet.
  12. ARC 2022

    I dropped off my app yesterday to the portable tent at ARC. Hopefully they update the system regularly, but I know it’s a lot of work.
  13. SCC/ARC Fall 2021 Sac City/American River College

    I don't know anyone that personally went through the nursing programs but "Sierra College Nursing Program is Ranked 3rd in State". SCC is ranked #39 an ARC is ranked #40. Also, as far as NCLEX pass rates, for 2019/2020 school year 100% of Sierra st...
  14. Sierra College 2021 Applications

    I got accepted my acceptance as well! They want a commitment to their program like NOW, so if someone got into more than 1 program yet committed to Sierra, that opens up spots for others. Keep your fingers crossed and good luck!
