    Its not letting me quote tonight, sorry!! Admissions has already gone over everything you have taken and need to take. They will give you a print out and register you for the nursing classes only. You will need to register for the remaining on your own. :-)

    No, cost doesnt include books or supplies. Only covers cost of classes and lab fees (including ATI access). All other supplies and uniforms and books are extra. Try Craigslist for previous students selling. Or amazon, i got mine pretty cheap.

    I wish I could tell you that this gets easier guys!! Hang in there. The ride is bumpy :) When you are accepted, you will be running like a chicken with it's hea... oh nevermind. But, it is indeed psycho crazy the amounts of things you will need to get done and get turned in on time to guarantee your seats. Take a breath and realize that all this waiting is preparation for your patience and adaptability you will need to be the best nurses out there! It's all good, guys & gals. Enjoy the process because your head will be buried before long! Oh, and don't be disappointed if it takes another week to get your letters. They run a lot later now with the new dean of nursing. This process is not a smooth one, trust me! They need to work out about a million kinks. Rainbows & Butterflies everyone... rainbows and butterflies (it's a happy world I live in )

    Just think if it this way, every time they have to pick up the phone (and they won't tell you anything, trust me) is another 5 minutes they are spending NOT printing and sending your letter! Just sayin' :-p

    Here you go everyone :-) https://allnurses.com/florida-nursing/phcc-fall-2014-a-889734-page114.html#post7998208 hope it builds some confidence! As for professors and class. We are all in one class. The two professors trade off teaching lecture (Tuesday 9:00-2:30) Then there are 3 clinical instructors. (Class is Tues and Thurs 8:00-3:00) Again, all in one class. The two professors take turns teaching clinical skill. The class is divided into three equal groups. Each group is assigned a clinical instructor. Each instructor goes to a different hospital for clinicals. That will be your clinical group for the duration of your schooling. hth!!

    Sorry for delay everyone!! As for stats of those of us in this semester, we had a running list too. I dont have it saved but i'll try to find the page. Check under PHCC 2014 Fall HOpefuls (or click my profile and search my previous posting to get you to the right forum) ScarletJones posted an updated list even noting who made it so that would be the best list to find (again, i'll search too)Honestly, scores calculated in the low 80% got in!! You are all looking good!

    We have a new dean of nursing so expect the letter to be accurate. Ours were spot on. We all figured they were just saying a scripted response too (which it really is) but they in no way were early! Didn't get until 1st of July. Hoping proves different for you all, but don't be disappointed if the letter they sent is actually accurate. And be prepared for that to be the last accurate information you get... just sayin'

    Hello all! Just wanted to send a few things out there for you to chew on since you are all anxious anyway :) Uniforms: Tops from Bookstore. White pants from anywhere. I actually think the ones at the store are nicer than the ones you buy elsewhere. Some don't like that they are elastic, but they look nicer in style. Not a flare at the bottom though so if you like that don't get them from the store. I got mine from Wal-Mart believe it or not! And, I don't even shop there often but another nursing student 2 semesters ahead of me gave me a heads up. Just make sure they are white. Undergarments: Men?!? Get yourselves some white boxers to go under and save yourselves Ladies, wear nude and white hose are a great way to cover up!! Shoes: All white, small logos or small stripe of a color is accepted. That's about it. DON'T GET MESH ANYTHING! You will be covered in so many bodily fluids. You do NOT want that in the mesh. Get all leather so you can wipe those things down. Letters: They will not come when you expect them... Just come to terms with it! Ours came a couple weeks after the previous classes did. Also, it will NOT be a thick envelope. It's an acceptance form you return either accepting or declining your seat. Once you get that turned in they will email you your novel of paperwork that you will rush around for the next 4 weeks trying to get finished as economically as possible. Have fun with THAT!! Campus: You don't get to pick. They give you what they give you and you take it! Sorry, but it's true! Hope this gives you all some information to settle your nerves for 30 seconds or so. Start shopping for shoes now to save yourselves on thing you have to do. Don't reace to go get any physicals at this point. Unless you do it this way: They have their own form your doctor will have to fill out. You can't just submit a copy of office notes. Dr. has to fill out PHSC's form. (hint, you can find the form online here - Admissions and Registration Forms | Pasco-Hernando State College Look at the bottom of the page and print it out. Get that out of the way and you will be so much happier!) Best Wishes to ALL!

    For everyone already creating a back-up plan: First of all stop stressing before you even hear!! ;-) in all honesty though, just make sure where ever you go is accredited. Otherwise no sitting for boards, and no license! Yikes!! You all are fine... Your scores are competiive. You got this!!
