    Starting HCC L.V.N. program in the fall, worried...

    Thanks! Yeah that is pretty much the advice I am adhereing to. I know if my GPA is in order and if I'm open minded, I'll be fine. I'm fortunate to have worked at a home health agency since 2003 so I've already been able to net work.Good luck to you as well!!! I'm pumped for this hahaha I think I'm one of 3 or 4 guys this year lol. My fiance LOVES that hahaha
  2. All i seem to hear is how bad the job market is right now for ANY nurses let alone new grad LVN's. It has pretty much taken some of the wind out of my sails I have a month old son and I hope this isn't going to be a fruitless venture. I am going through LVN b/c the waiting list for RN is long, I can start working (or so i thought) and get my ADN at the same time, and I would have experience coming out of the ADN program. Anyone else starting this fall???

    TEAS test in 13 days! Applying to HCC LVN

    I have my interview for the LVN program tomorrow. I am so nervous but I feel prepared. My little 2 week old son provides me all the motivation I need. :) The app process goes like this. -attend the info session -take your prereqs (ap 1&2 sub for allied sciences ap) -take intro to health professions they like that. - LEARN the material dont just memorize it. -get your transcripts from H.S. and college ready -start your HepB shots at least 6 months prior to applying -take TEAS test -go apply with test scores, transcripts, and immunization records with you -pray, or what ever works for you lol -do not let anyone deter you from your goal. any other questions let me know.

    LVN program @ HCCS

    I would literally sit by your computer the night before registration opens. That's what I did and I was able to get into nutrition this summer. 45 minutes after registration opened all of the classes were full.

    LVN program @ HCCS

    I just finished applying and I'm wondering how many people are accepted into the program as i head they took in about 150 apps. I took AP 1&2 getting a B and A respectively. I took vnsg1216 with an A and scored a 91% in the reading and 97% in the math portions of the TEAS. I'll let you know if I get in. lol

    I took the test again this afternoon and scored a 91% in the reading portion and a 97% in the math portion. The minimum is 70 so I am very excited. I was in the 98% national overall and 99% program

    TEAS test in 13 days! Applying to HCC LVN

    Well I finished the semester with an A in AP2 and a B in AP1 as well as an A in Health Professions. I took the test on the 11th and although I finished in the 98-99 percentile on every subject (92%math 89%science 89%english) I faltered in the reading portion and missed it by one point (69%) So now i'm retaking on the 20th and THIS time I wont be up for two nights in a row studying and finishing projects from health professions b/c my lap top crashed haha. I really think the lack of sleep caused me to lose concentration and make really really silly mistakes. I will keep everyone updated, wish me luck!!!

    TEAS test in 13 days! Applying to HCC LVN

    You are not supposed to and it is HIGHLY unrecommended but I did it and I am sitting at a 91 in AP2 and an 89 in AP1. Also, I had ******** for my poff and let me tell you.... he was the most changelling teacher I have ever had, BUT you come out of there knowing what you're talking about. Anyone here recently get into the LVN program at HCC?? I was wondering what you did and what your scores were. Just so I know what my chances are haha

    TEAS test in 13 days! Applying to HCC LVN

    Version V is what I am taking. I just took my first practice exam in the Kaplan book and scored an average of 80 between the reading and comprehension & vocabulary I rushed through it like crazy and I don't know why. also i cannot send PM's for some reason. Test is on Tuesday!!! I am freaking out.
  13. I am kinda starting to freak out b/c when I registered for the test I did not realize that my AP2 final was on the same day and my AP1 final was the NEXT day. I'm starting to worry I might not have the grades in my prereq's to get into the program. I'm taking A1 and AP2 with Weirsema (for those who go to HCC, toughest teacher out there but you WILL learn) with an avg so far of 92 in AP2 and 89 in AP1. I'm also taking their Intro to Health Professions class with an A there as well (super easy class). LOOOONG story short, i wanted to know if anyone could give me an idea as to how i would stack up against other lvn hopefuls?? And if 13 days is enough time to study for my TEAS test (need help in math and chem only really) and get the minimum 70% on it? Thanks for any advise and encouragement, I have a child on the way and this is something I have been working for all semester. Thanks, Armando
