    Congrats everyone! Make sure to start your clinical paperwork ASAP! Word of advice, for every form that you get filled out by a doctor or your immunizations...make sure it has the facility name, address, contact info. Get a signature from the doctor..even in your immunizations and titers! That should save the headache of having to redo clinical paperwork. I'm in NP1 southshore now so if you have any questions I can help the best I can :)

    You learn pharm as you're learning your fundamentals. We just finished our first month and started to learn medication administration, so not that far into it yet to tell you what you will learn. I believe there is a separate course in the summer, but it is NOT required. The program is actually changing the curriculum starting with your spring cohorts. I don't really remember what will be different as it doesn't really to me. You will find out about your acceptance/denial via hawkmail.

    You start your "clinicals" in class/lab so you can start learning some skills before you get to the hospital. You won't get to the hospital until a month after you start

    Good luck everyone! I was accepted this fall with a 3.7. Believe the GPA cutoff was 3.66 but alternates with 3.5-something getting called back! I'm sure you all will be fine :)

    Hillsborough Community College Fall 2017

    I wasn't mature enough for college- hence why didn't do well either. Also I struggle academically. It took me going back to school in my late 20s and now early 30s to understand that I have to put in the extra effort to do well. I went from B's and a few C's to straight As....In the sciences! Want to know why it took me this long to try nursing? Because i didn't think I was competent, but when I earned my first A in A&P, I felt that I was. Now I feel like I'm not all over again. Two B's is what's hurting me--- like really?

    If youre seeing that on your "progress towards degree" it shouldn't be because mine showed 5/26.

    Applicant stats change all the time! Maybe there are more applicants, but who knows what they are bringing to the table--you know? For instance, the program I was in prior had a point system. The year before had a cut off of 84 but the year I applied was 74 (luckily i had an 84, i was sweating bullets). This year i was told it went up again. Also consider those who applied and got accepted into other programs or don't meet the basic criteria (e.g. didnt fill out the application right, didnt take all the required courses.) Probably the bulk of people who were not accepted in the spring are re-applying with same GPAs while some of you bumped yours up. A lot of variables to consider and hopefully they work in everyone's favor.
