    SWTCC Fall 2014 Nursing Hopefuls

    So how does this process work? Do we go get all of our info on May 30 that tells us what physical forms need to be filled out and what color scrubs we need and all of that? Or should I/we call the nursing dept and go ahead and get the physicals out of the way before we go pick up the nursing packets? I don't want to mess anything up! I am so ready for August to get here already! I honestly don't think I have looked forward to starting another semester as much as I am looking forward to this one! Any of you guys live close to Millington? I make a horrible study partner (between working full time, church activities, and my son and his activities I have to study when/where I can so scheduling a study time with someone else NEVER works out for me) but would like to think it is a possibility if the opportunity ever arises

    I don't do facebook so I guess after we get started I will just have to exchange numbers with all of you for some good old fashioned texting/calling lol

    Well like i said earlier, hopefully they don't make you guys wait as long for a response! The last month or so has been pure agony for me!

    my index score was only a 56 or 57 ( I had an A in ap 1 and B's in ap2 and micro). I got a 132 on NLN and I forget what my gpa is (3.73 I want to say but don't quote me). I have already done english comp 1 and probability and statistics and nutrition. All I have to take are my actual nursing courses thank goodness because it looks like I will be attempting to work while going through the program (we will see how my grades look by the end of the first semester to determine if i will be working my second semester or not lol)

    aahhh ok ok. I was confused lol. Sorry! @callen901 I totally understand! I have heard some nightmares from Baptist students (waiting forever for clinicals among other complaints). I don't think they have an official waitlist at SW but I think there may be a few students who don't hear anything immediately, that way if an applicant doesn't not accept the acceptance offer then they will have back up students if that makes sense.

    lol how would I know if they are going to be accepting more students? Anyone can look at the classes for fall 2014. As of this morning it still only had 60 openings for Foundations class so I guess that is all they are taking this semester? Hopefully for spring they will be better equipped and prepared for 120 and hopefully you won't have to wait as long to hear from the nursing dept as we did! I think we are in the new building. . . .maybe. Wherever Walnut Street is that is where we have to go for our nursing packets. Right now I am not very suited for answering your questions, but anything I find out I will be more than happy to share!

    So to those of you who received acceptance offers from southwest and other schools (Baptist, etc) how many of you are going to go with southwest?

    When I clicked on the student requirements link under the Financial Aid tab this is what I saw: [TABLE=class: datadisplaytable] [TR] [TD=class: dddefault]Please call 333-5924 to complete your admissions status.[TABLE=class: datadisplaytable, width: 98%, align: right] [TR] [TD=class: dddefault]* Please visit our website at Admissions or call the Admission Office at 901-333-5924 to obtain an admission application.

    The class availability still only shows that there are 60 openings. I also found out that if you've applied for financial aid (which I have) then they can't process it unless you are accepted (since I have completed my pre-req's and am now at a point where it's either get into a degree program or get out). I noticed today that there was a student requirement message on my financial aid account so I called the financial aid dept and asked about it and she said that it just means I have to gain acceptance into nursing program before they can move forward with processing (the notice said something about I needed to complete my admissions status or update it....something to the effect of me needing to fill out an application). Anyway, thinking I was being slick, when she asked if there was anything else she could help me with I said "Yes, you could let me know if I am in or not! You don't have to directly tell me....just tell me if you know if you can start processing my financial aid application!" and she chuckled and told me the nursing department will make their decisions soon...........SIGH!!!!!
