    Flu Shots

    It is not mandatory at my hospital, but we do have to sign a form that states we were offered the shot, but refused. Our hospital also provides them free.

    People who just graduated...ATT yet?

    You can also go to the GA BON website http://www.sos.state.ga.us/plb/rn/ and see if they have received your application yet...just click on "Check the Status of an Application" on the left side of the screen and follow the directions.

    People who just graduated...ATT yet?

    I gave you a heads up about this in the "All Current GPC Nursing Students" thread. GPC told me the same thing about the NCLEX...that they were sending the paperwork, wait for the phone number to call...I didn't get my ATT until March (I graduated in Dec.). You need to contact Pearson Vue. The GA board of nursing will NOT send you anything until after you pay for the NCLEX. Go to http://www.vue.com/ register for an account, pay the NCLEX fee, then they will notify the board of nursing that you paid and the board of nursing will send your ATT. Then you go back to vue.com and schedule your NCLEX. I did what GPC said...wait 4-6 weeks for the board of nursing to send the phone #...and it was wrong. GPC was actually fast about mailing my paperwork, it was there within two weeks...too bad I didn't know I had to register before getting an ATT.

    When I attended GPC we had a Med surg book by Mosby. Now GPC is using a Prentice Hall book.

    I graduated in '05, but I still have some notes from webCT. The reading assignments will be different due to different books, but the content is the same. PM me your email and I will help in any way I can.
  7. How much is your final worth? If it's worth 20% of your total grade you will only need a 56 on the final to get a passing grade of 75%. Break it down and figure out what you actually need to pass. Maybe if you are able to see what you need it will help ease your fears. Good Luck.

    Thank you!

    What is BCLS?

    What is BCLS? I know it is Basic Cardiac Life Support, but where do I get certified? I checked the AHA website and it lists ACLS, BLS for Healthcare Providers, PALS..But no BCLS. Is this even a real course?

    GPC Students - how was your semester?

    I know a few that got over 75. One girl needed 77.5 to pass & thats exactly what she got. All I can say is try your hardest, review the material, and pray. I really feel for you.

    GPC Students - how was your semester?

    Nobody was really safe for the final. Everybody I knew needed at least a 65 on the final to pass, some needed 80's. We lost a few during the semester, but two people failed because they did not score high enough on the final.

    GPC Students - how was your semester?

    I graduated in Dec. in a class of 18. More than half of my class had failed a previous semester. IF you fail, you can use your time off going over what you didn't grasp the first time. ALOT of the test questions are used again (or the same concepts) so go to the test reviews. You can graduate from GPC. I had no choice, I didn't have the resources to transfer to another college, but if you can, look at all your options. I had one classmate (that had failed a previous semester) during 4th semester that was already regeistered for class at Athens Tech. That way if she failed again she could start class there in Jan. and not have to sit out a semester for the application process. Also, 2nd year was easier for me. We had quizzes and they helped to bring my grade up. Good Luck. Bo

    Nclex/state Results

    I believe from reading your other posts (and your screen name) you are from GA. If so here is a link to the GA board of nursing web site & the schools pass rates. http://www.sos.state.ga.us/plb/rn/NCLEX-RN_2001-04_Results.pdf

    is this normal?

    At my school, before entering the nursing program, we have to sign a Truth in Advertising form which states how many students graduated the last year & how many passed the NCLEX. For 04/05 only 40% of the students who started went on to graduate; 70 out of 174. This was my class and I only know of a handful that dropped classes, the rest failed.
  16. At my school I needed: Composition & Rhetoric I Algebra Communications (speech) Word Processing and Research Skills Chemistry & Lab Human Anatomy & Physiology I & Lab Human Anatomy & Physiology II & Lab Microbiology & Lab Political Science U.S. History Principles of Psychology Phys. Ed (classroom health type course) Your choice from Humanities You could start the nursing courses before taking Micro, but it had to be completed prior to 3rd semester. A Regents test in writing and reading comprhension must also be passed prior to 3rd semester. It's wasn't too bad :). I am suprised that your school doesn't require a math class. ETA: History, Political Science, and Phys. Ed are requirments of my school. Everyone takes them.
