  1. Texas A&M HSC RN-BSN

    Has anyone recently attended or applied? I just applied and am curious for any information from people who have attended or applied. Does anyone have any info on the number of applicants that are actually accepted? Also, it says it's online....but I ...
  2. Texas Tech Fall 2015 RN-BSN

    Hello, I also applied and am waiting for my acceptance. Texas Tech requires statistics for admission. I was not accepted the first time I applied because I had not taken stat yet. Also, from what I understand they do accept everyone who meets the min...
  3. Nursing school vaccinations

    Hi! I am going to apply to WC nursing program in June for spring 2011. I wanted to work on getting my vaccinations next month. This is probably a silly question, but do you just go to your family physician to do that? And do I need to ask for somethi...
  4. Is this a HIPAA violation?

    I have a friend on Facebook who works (not a nurse, but works at the desk) in the ER at a hospital in my area. She sometimes posts things on facebook that happen at work in the ER. Recently, I saw that she made a post about the shift she was working,...
  5. Allowing Pt's Parent to Take Meds Home

    You should think like a nurse rather than a mom. Give the medications in the hospital. That's your responsibility to your patient.
  6. Tarrant County Spring 2012 Applicants

    For those who will be doing clinicals at Plaza, your clinical instructor is really great. She is so calm and nice. Good luck!
  7. Tarrant County Spring 2012 Applicants

    It's awesome! I have had a great first semester. It is what you make it though, so always remember that. Keep a positive attitude (and it will be hard). NS is so tough, but also rewarding. Listen to advice from your instructors, study almost everyday...
  8. Tarrant County Spring 2012 Applicants

    Hey, I would recommend going with V-neck. Everyone in this semester has one. All of the clinical instructors will have different requirements, but some are VERY particular and I don't think they will be changing their ways anytime soon, lol. A lot of...
  9. Tarrant County Spring 2012 Applicants

    Hey I just wanted to remind y'all, TNSA also sells scrubs for $2 a piece. You may be able to go to the TNSA office after orientation to see what they have. Last semester, they gave us a mini tour of the TREC and that is where we picked up our nursing...
  10. RN Benefits

    Hi! I was wondering what the benefits are for an RN working in a hospital as an RN in the Ft. Worth area. I was wondering about medical insurance, how much vacation, etc. Thanks!
  11. Tarrant County Spring 2012 Applicants

    I was accepted to the nursing program last app period. Our schedules were posted at the campus and we were able to go up there and look at them. They may do it differently this time because of security at the TREC campus or something. I can't remembe...
  12. Tarrant County Spring 2012 Applicants

    Congrats to all of you!!!

    M/W 1-7 clinical T/Th 10-12 lecture Thurs 1:30-4:30 skills Skills will always be on a day of your lecture, not the day of clinical. It's only 1 day per week. the morning clinical is from 7-1 I think.
  14. Tarrant County Spring 2012 Applicants

    @txhusker-I believe there was only one Saturday clinical offered (10 students) this semester. They will put you at a hospital (make sure that you update your address with the nursing department, not just the school if you have moved recently) near wh...
  15. Tarrant County Spring 2012 Applicants

    My schedule works out for me. I quit working right before school started. I really don't see how I could work and do this at the same time. I also have no children. I do plan to get a job after this semester is over (part-time). Nursing school is ext...
  16. Tarrant County Spring 2012 Applicants

    Hey all! Not sure if this helps, but Student an Txhusker are correct. You would not be able to take other nursing classes and graduate early. It is a set program and you will have to follow it. Also, the classes will all be at the TREC so that must b...
  17. Weatherford College Spring 2011 applicants

    Hi! Who is applying to Weatherford for the spring 2011 semester? I took the TEAS yesterday and didn't do as well as I was hoping. I am going to retake it and hopefully then I will have 18 or 19 points. It seems that the point system has changed and i...
  18. Tarrant County Spring 2012 Applicants

    Student-No, I didn't pay for two drug tests. I found out about TCC before the drug test for WC was due (barely) so I just paid for TCC. I was super bummed about paying for the background check 2X's though. TCC does the check through Group1 and then f...
  19. Online Nursing Schools

    I'm not sure of any online schools for BSN. Have you considered an ADN program?
  20. Clinical Hair

    You can also ask someone at a hair salon for help with this issue too. They should be able to give you some tips for styling your hair.
  21. Clinical Hair

    You may want to think about having your hair texturized (thinned out). You can have that done at an upscale salon. You will be able to keep your long hair but have it weigh a LOT less. Then every other time or every two times that you get your hair c...
  22. Tarrant County Spring 2012 Applicants

    Hey guys, I applied and was accepted to the fall program at TCC. I just wanted to wish you all the best of luck! I'm going in to my 4th week and am loving it!!! Student- All of the nursing schools do not do the same background check!! WC used L1 but...
  23. how competitive are texas nursing schools?

    It is really going to vary from school to school. Most schools don't have the exact same criteria. An example is, some may only look at your science GPA an entrance exam scores. It just varies. I would suggest looking at the nursing program websites ...
  24. Is this a HIPAA violation?

    Okay, so maybe it is a HIPAA violation if she gave the date that the patient came into the hospital? I did find a list of HIPAA regulated patient identifiers and "dates" is on the list. Either way, it seems like there is a fine line that she seems V...
  25. Is this a HIPAA violation?

    Again, she is not my coworker. No, it is not the same thing at least not from my a point of view. I don't do clinicals at the location where my friend works, nor am I employed there. Not to mention, I did not say what hospital it was, I just...
