    Question about nursing school

    I guess I was really lucky to dissect a real cadaver in my Anatomy class. I went to a community college, where a local university give us cadavers. There were 6 cadavers, and we actually have to dissect them with tools. The body wasn't yet dissected, and we were the first students in the lab to dissect the body. The formaldehyde bothered my eyes very much, and I had to wear goggles. The smell was horrifying! I was so nervous at first, but after that experience it wasn't too bad. I looked at it as a learnig experience. The head of the cadaver was covered, so we didn't see the face at all which makes it a lot easier. The dental program in the community college I took the class decapitates the head, and after the cadaver is done, they bring it back to the local university that gave it to us, and have the families of the cadavers come to the cremation event. I'm very thankful to those cadavers that donated their bodies to science. Our professor also took us the the county coroner's office, and we actually watched a live autopsy really up close in the same room without looking outside a glass window. I guess the dissection up close prepared us to watch a live autopsy.
  2. I'm not really sure what they look for? I even appealed the rejection letter, and the director told me that they don't accept appeal letters, and I have to reapply again next year. However, I got accepted to Ohlone College. I really dont' mind if it's not an accelerated program, at least I will become an RN. Good Luck to you!! Make sure to apply to lots of schools. -tgal-

    Anybody got accepted at Ohlone College this Fall 2008?

    Thanks! Congratulations on getting accepted at SMC! Yes, I agree with you, Janet (counselor) is very helpful and a pleasant lady to ask for class advice. I can't wait to start in September. I'm looking forward for orientation. Congratulations to your friend who I will meet eventually when we start the program.

    I'm Going to be a RN!

    Congratulations on your acceptance! :) We are on our way to becoming a nurse :) I still have to take the TEAS this Wednesday. The passing score for my school is 67%
  9. YAY!! I just got accepted to Ohlone College this Fall 2008. I can't wait to start the program, and also a bit anxious. Anybody here going there? :nuke:
  10. Congratulations! Wow! My heart was crushed when I saw and opened the letter telling me that I was denied!! I'm happy for you that you didn't have the same reaction I did. I really don't know what else they're looking for in a candidate? I'm so ready to get started with this program. Good Luck!
  11. Thanks! I applied to two other schools, but SFSU is really my first choice, and where I want to go. You should expect an acceptance letter this week. I emailed the coordinator, and she said that this is the week where they mail acceptance letters. Good Luck!
  12. I just received my denial letter in the mail yesterday, and my heart sank as soon as I saw the letter because I already knew that I was denied since the envelope was small. This is really frustrating!! I work full time, and attend school part time, and it seems like my hard work is nothing. I'm feeling discouraged right now because this is really the school I want to attend. My experiences, and GPA are excellent, and I also met 2/3 of their supplemental criteria. I also had great recommendation from my Anatomy professor, my manager who's a Registered Nurse, and I volunteer at Stanford Hospital. I'm currently a medical assistant who has experience both clinically and as well in utilization management. I'm not sure what criteria they based my application on? It's very discouraging!! Anybody else received a denial letter from SFSU?

    Good Luck to you! I have been really anxious about this month. Yes, they are mailing acceptance letters this week for SFSU. I emailed the coordinator last week, and this is the week they are seding out letters. I'm so nervous!!
