    Evergreen Valley College...input please?

    La Angelita- did you decide to go the ADN route or the BSN route? Determined2b- one thing that I found particularly helpful was taking the TEAS exam ahead of time. It really took the pressure off knowing I could study at my own pace and would have more than one chance if I needed it. If you do not take the TEAS ahead of time and are offered a spot at EVC, it seems they give you one chance at the exam. If your score isn't passing, they automatically put you into a remediation plan. Just something to think about :)

    TEAS-V for SUNY Downstate

    I purchased ATI's study manual for TEAS V. It helped tremendously. You are right, there are a lot of earth science questions on the exam, but I only had maybe 5 chemistry questions. I spent about 5 weeks preparing for the exam, just working through the practice exams and finding where my weaknesses were. Best of luck on your exam!

    Job market for recent grads?

    Thank you for your helpful response, RNTriathlete. I will absolutely look into working at a local hospital while during my program, that's a great tip. Do you think that volunteer work at a hospital is favored in the same light as working? Also if I may ask, what general area is it that people from your class have been able to find work? Thanks again :)

    Job market for recent grads?

    I am needing some advice from recent graduates in California. I am going to be starting nursing school (ADN) in the bay area this September, and I am wondering how the job market has been? I know it is difficult to find a job in this economy, and I was wondering what cities/towns anyone has had luck in? I do not have the option to look for jobs in other states after I graduate, but I am not tied down to any area in California in particular. If anyone can give me ideas as to where they have had success, or even where they haven't, I would greatly appreciate it. Also, is there any advice you can give me from your experience as to what I can do to make myself stand out from other applicants? I know I am 2 years away from graduating... I just love to plan .

    wow congratulations! I've known several BSN SFSU students and they loved the program.

    LaAngelita- I got an email from EVC today, I start in the fall! So excited. I hope you got good news as well!

    College of the Canyons Stats

    Congratulations Sunglitz! Nice Day- I can't remember the number they told us at orientation last semester, but I believe it was somewhere around the 40's. I could be totally wrong though... I have been an alternate at a bunch of schools so I may be mixed up.
  9. My commnet says wait-listed at three rivers... maybe only they updated?

    I'm not sure how it works either, my stats aren't very good. I guess we will get more info at the orientation this month. I know for the fall '10 class the whole alternate list was used up. Spring '11 had a few left that were not used. Here's to hoping...

    Nice Day and Sunglitz- I got an email today- I am an alternate again :-( I hope you both got better news than I did!

    Yes that was for version IV. I've been accepted into Cuesta College in SLO and Evergreen Valley College in San Jose. Hopefully I will get into COC, its definitely my #1 choice.

    Of course! Anatomy/physiology was B/C, micro an A, English an A and all non nursing classes have been satisfied from my B.S. Overall GPA is 3.1 and my teas was a 94%. I also have work experience as a phlebotomist, so that may have helped too. One thing about COC is they require students to have an LA county issued fire safety card. They offer only one class at the school each semester and it fills up super quickly. If you can, sign up for it ASAP. I waited too long last year and ended up scrambling to find a hospital that offered it outside of employees only. Good luck to everyone applying :-)

    Hey Sunglitz- Did they give you any more information on when they will let applicants know by? I applied last round, was wait listed and never got called up. I applied again on the off chance I get in for the fall... but I was also accepted to 2 other programs as well and my time window to accept my seat is short. Thanks for your help! Best of luck :-)
