    The ADN program students wear red scrubs with a black/white patch on left arm. They are actually pretty cute!

    Calling ALL Weatherford College students

    LOL! I can tell you are really excited! That's awesome! Let's see...the first semester of clinicals is at a nursing home. This semester we go to Westside Campus of Care in Ft Worth but I think they have another location they use as well. The second semester (Med Surg/Maternity/Pedi) clinicals will be at a hospital. Most of the clinicals are in Fort Worth with the exception of the Mental Health summer semester which is in Wichita Falls for 4 days. My classes are M 1-9:30p, W 1-5, Thurs 1-9:30, Sat 8-3 clinical. I am in the night/weekend class. The day classes start at 8am and go for pretty much the same amount of time. There are 20 people in my class and 3 are guys. The second semester students have a class of 40 and I know they have at least 5 or 6 guys in their class. It definitely makes things more interesting with the guys in class!! lol. The only advice regarding teaching style is to understand that the first semester is mostly trying to get you to 'think like a nurse.' It's definitely different than any other school/classes I have taken before but they will help you adjust. As long as you give the time and effort, you will do fine. I spend the days I am not in school studying and doing clinical work. I would say about 20 hours of work outside of class. Hope this helps! If you think of anything else, let me know and I'll be glad to answer your questions.

    Calling ALL Weatherford College students

    Hello! I am currently in my first semester of the ADN program at Weatherford College. It is a great program with wonderful professors. It has been a lot of hard work but very enjoyable. Let me know if you have any questions about anything specific. You made a great choice in WC! Best of luck to you.
  4. I am currently a part of Weatherford College's evening/weekend class. This is the first time they have offered the ADN program this way and so far it has been awesome. We attend class M & Th from 1-9:30pm with a 1 hour dinner break, Wed 1-5 and all of our clinical work is on Saturdays. The fall class is during the day M-F but they may offer this program again beginning in January 2010. Let me know if you have any questions. Best of luck!

    Hi! The letters usually go out the day before our spring break...so for you, it should be March 13th. It sounds like you have a pretty good chance with the amount of points you have vs. possible points. Best of luck to you! Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Hi! The first time that I applied the point scale was different. The total possible was 18 points and I had 16. I was an alternate at that time. When I reapplied, I had 23 out of 26 points and was accepted. It is based on the pool of applicants that apply and how you rank among them. I have heard from each semester that a lot of times it will come down to right before the semester starts and they are calling alternates to fill spots. Best of luck to you!

    If you recently applied to start in the fall, the letters should go out the Friday before spring break. In this case, it would be March 13th. Best of luck to you!

    TEAS at Weatherford College

    Weatherford started a new nursing program beginning in the spring. In the past they have only had a fall class but this year decided to add a spring class. The classes are 1-10pm, 1-9pm, and 1-5 during the week and clinicals on Saturdays. They are accepting 20 students and the application period is during the summer.

    Anyone else apply for Weatherford's night/weekend class starting in the spring? The application period ended last Friday and I was curious if anyone was waiting on the letter like I am. =)

    ? for those at Weatherford college

    I applied to Weatherford this spring and was told that usually about 180 people apply and they accept 40. Last year they took 12 alternates and this year they took 20 alternates. Hope this helps!:nuke:

    Hi! I am a little familiar with Weatherford. I applied this last January and just received my letter that I am an alternate. The school is nice, the town is very quiet and nice, and I am very excited to attend when I get the call. I have been going to TCC for all of my pre-req's. TCC's nursing program is very competitive. I was told by the secretary of the nursing dept at WC that 180 students apply and they accept 40. Not near as bad as TCC. Definitely take WC into consideration when applying...I am looking forward to moving that way!

    Hi! I hope you all can help ease my anticipation! I received a letter 2 days ago from Weatherford College that stated I was accepted as an alternate. It instructed me to proceed as if I was accepted with the shots, CPR, background, etc. The school is closed for the week for spring break and I am anxious to know how the alternate process works. Are they numbered? I know they take 40 students...how many alternates in addition to that? Anyone have any information? Thanks for you help!
