    NVCC Class of 2013 Meet and Greet + Q&A

    Name: Morgan Years at NVCC: 1.5 this time around Joined the FBook Group: Yes Track: Traditional Career Goal: RN with focus in pediatrics or maternal and newborn Planning to Transfer: Eventually Classes Completed: SDV 101, SOC 201, ENG 111, NAS 161/162, CST 229, HLT 141, PHI 220, PSY 201/202, currently 90% done with HLT 250. About me: I am currently a stay at home mom with a two year old son and a four year old daughter. I just turned 28. Before staying home with my kids I worked for a large medical practice managing a group of medical receptionists for close to 8 years. I always have had a great respect for medical professionals and after staying home and taking care of my kids I have developed a passion for understanding more about health and how to care for others. I am super excited about starting this program and I look forward to meeting you all and taking on this challenge. Questions: Is anyone else doing their CPR class through Newport Enterprises?

    I noticed a month ago that my degree progress report had that on it too. The date for it is the same as my general studies major and I seem to remember that I had chosen NUR and had to switch to Gen Studies too. I had never noticed it on there before but it could have been there, I have not known what to make of it either. Geesh, hopefully this doesn't drag on too much longer!

    I still have nothing in my organizations and no letter yet either. I am anxiously waiting for SOMETHING. I feel like the link might not show up this time around and maybe they are doing something different but maybe it just has not happened yet. As for schedules, I have a friend who got in last year and she said the first semester everything is assigned for you and that you do not get your schedule until the orientation date. I could be wrong, and hope I am because basically you have no say. I think that you are able to swap clinicals with other people if they have a day or location that works better for you. It is a little frustrating. I hope we all get some word soon!!!

    No link here at 7:38, or the other 5 times I checked it since getting up at 7:00. I really just want to know either way. Maybe today is the day.

    I went back through last years posts and it was on the 9th that people started mentioning the link showing up on Blackboard. I wonder if they will be doing the same thing this year, I have been checking every few hours. I remember them sending letters out on a Friday last year because I got my letter on the Saturday after it had been 2 weeks.

    Acceptance to NVCC Fall 2011 Program!!!

    I had a 2.9 the last time around. I had taken my first A&P course 8 years ago and I had gotten a C and I had one other course from back then that I had gotten a C in as well. When I wasn't accepted last year I decided to retake those courses and ended up with an A in each of them so that brought my GPA way up, along with taking more of the pre-requisites and co-requisites and doing well in those. My concern is that while I think I did OK on the TEAS maybe I didn't do as well as others, and also maybe there are people who have applied with previous degrees who have similar stats. Everyone, think positive. This is my second time through the application/acceptance process and the first time around just motivated me to do better this time. I think that I will be a better nurse (whenever) because of it.

    I was thinking the same thing earlier today as I stalked my mail lady. At least we are waiting together.

    I averaged 85 for the TEAS sections, I did really well in the reading section but not so much for the math. My GPA is 3.8. I have taken all of the pre-requisites and co-requisites for the program, I just have the actual nursing classes left (after pharmacology this semester). It is definitely a competitive program. I will definitely follow up whenever I get my letter! Good luck!!! :)

    I am not sure how I am going to get through the next 2 weeks. I was not accepted to the Fall 2010 program so all I have done over the last year is re-take classes that I did not do well in to bring up my GPA to be more competitive. I hope it was enough!!! Good luck to you all!

    How Competitive is Northern Virginia Comm College?

    I applied for the traditional nursing program that started in 2010 and was not accepted. I had a 2.9 GPA and was in the 80s-90s for all of my TEAS sections. I also live in Fairfax County. Since then I have retaken some courses that I had not done well in and brought my GPA up to a 3.79. I am hoping to be a lot more competitive this time around.
