    Linfield Accelerated Summer 2011 Cohort

    You have to have one year total (3 terms) of bio and/or chem classes combined (besides the A/P requirements) For example, I had: Bio 102, Bio 112, and Chem 101 that counted for my year. (Chem 101 and Bio 102 were the last classes I took for my pre-req's because none of the other schools that I was applying to had the one year requirement.)

    The school doesn't create cohort pages... they rely on the students to do that. They were really impressed when we did it last year for the Summer '10 cohort because we were the first group to be talking on FB prior to the start date and it really helps you start to make connections with your cohort and become a more cohesive group. It's nice to start building the friendships and relationships a little because you don't have to compete against each other in nursing school and can all work together towards a common goal of graduating and passing the NCLEX. I suggest you do what we did: Make a group, keep it public until through the first couple weeks of school and then make it private and just for the students in your cohort. You can discuss/clarify assignments, schedules, etc. and just express yourselves a little bit in a safe environment where everyone is in the same boat and you're all working to get through this together. Good luck! Looking forward to seeing you on campus in the summer! Tasha Summer '10 Cohort

    Wow, Nora! I'm so sorry! I can't even begin to imagine... I'm glad the faculty and staff have been so helpful and supportive! It really makes a big difference when you're dealing with such hardship and heartache. Thanks for the words of encouragement! :) See you in a few weeks!

    Oops... nevermind... I just saw your post on the FB group and double-checked the list. You hadn't transferred over when my list was created, but I'm pretty sure they'll schedule you in for Friday, June 25 from 4-6 pm because it only has 8 students. You should receive an info. packet in the mail, soon. :)

    No, you're not. No worries. You are correct, we are registering on orientation day. The schedule for the Resources Analysis Assignment was in the envelope they just mailed us with the orientation information. It is on a yellow sheet of paper and has the cohort split into groups of 10 and scheduled for different days/times during the first week of school. As far as the rest of the schedule, I found the schedule at: Courses | Linfield College, Portland Campus and the calendar at: Academic Calendar | Linfield College, Portland Campus

    Okay, just to clarify, here is the actual Summer schedule: Nurs 103 will be from 9:00-4:00 MWF with an hour break for lunch from 12:00-1:00 through July 9. Then we'll start Nurs 106 with lectures on Mondays from 8am-12pm and either TTH or WF clinicals from 8:00-3:00 like our letters stated. Nurs 106 will go from Monday 7/12- Friday 8/27 and then Fall Semester starts the following Tuesday.

    Thanks, Terri... Somehow I totally missed the form on the backside of that paper. I think I was just totally engrossed in going through all of the other material and that looked like a student group or an ad that I set aside to look at later and forgot about. :-P

    You guys want to meet at Starbucks at 8:00 on Monday, June 21? I think that would give us enough time to chitchat and get back to Linfield for Check In at 8:45. No, I haven't heard from a mentor, yet.... I just checked my Linfield email yesterday.

    The schedule was a yellow piece of paper they just mailed us along with all of the orientation information. I'm game for a pre-orientation meetup! :) Where's the Starbucks? I don't recall seeing it.

    THANK YOU! Everytime I've looked for it, I've always googled Linfield Academic Calendar and never been able to find this one! Wow... absolutely no break between Summer and Fall. We're going straight through until Thanksgiving Break with only a couple days off for fourth of July and Labor Day. :sofahider

    Hey Guys, I'm just finishing up my Bio/Chem pre-req's right now, as well. According to the Summer information letter, the syllabus will be emailed to us by June 14. I did find the Spring NURS 103 syllabus online, although it was taught by a different instructor and it was prepared for spring term, rather than the condensed summer term. However, I suspect the reading will be similar... and there's a fair amount of it. It looks like the spring term class was only held once a week, 3 hrs a day, for 15 weeks... whereas ours (according to my tour guide who took NURS 103 last summer) is 3 days a week, 4 hrs. a day, for 3 weeks. (Although it looks like they've changed it up a little because according to our letter it is going to be six hours of lecture two or three days/week.) 8-o. I already have most of my books and everything (yes, I'm excited), so I'm trying to get a headstart on it. I wish we had a schedule for summer and had some idea how long each course lasts. Does anyone know when summer term ends? I haven't found an academic calendar that includes summer dates. Just FYI, I do know that our fourth of July holiday falls on Monday, July 5, not Friday, July 2. Looking forward to meeting you all. Is anyone else scheduled for the Resource Analysis Assignment Lab on Friday, June 25 from 4-6pm? (Jessi76 - I believe you are, since I only see one Jessica on the student list.... my name is Tasha :-) ) For those of you who are interested, here is the schedule/information that my tour guide gave me regarding the accelerated Summer start cohort class/work load:

    WOW!!!! Lots of congratulations to all of you who got in!!!! :D Way to go! And for those of you on the waiting/alternate lists.... hang in there. As andie has indicated, many of those who have been accepted to these programs have been accepted to most of the programs they've applied to, or are on alternate lists, so your chances of getting in are probably much higher than you think! Hang in there!!!!
