    Memorial Hermann Summer 2016 Residency

    Dallas Fort Worth a metroplex so they have an identical cost of living. For free majority of national statistics, they're treated as one city. Unless the state has recently redone the Texas-only cost of living analysis, you're not going to find a seperate value for Fort Worth. The way it breaks down, per the 2015 cost of living analysis, if you're single, Dallas is literally less than 100$ more affordable than Houston. If you have a child, Houston is several thousand dollars more affordable than Dallas.

    No, cost of living in most parts of Dallas is higher than most parts of Houston but Houston tries to attract more medical professionals so the pay is typically higher.

    Do you remember the names of the ICU people? I forgot to get a business card and I don't know what to put on this Thank You card

    I thought I was alone! What are you applying to? I had, in this order, ICU, IMU, NICU.

    Lonestar, Paramedic to RN Bridge, Grade in Prereqs

    Thus why I put the name of the program in my question because, when I spoke with the four program heads at each branch, they all said pretty much the same thing, "Yes, the bridge is super competitive and you need great grades... but we've never actually had enough people apply to the bridge program to turn anyone down. We've actually had to close the program at one of the campuses so we could raise the enrollment rate at the other four."
  10. I am having a small issue with my prerequisites and was curious as to what sort of grades I need to qualify for the bridge program. I was doing amazingly well until this last semester when my husband fell ill and I spent the last two months working extra shifts to cover hospital bills. My studies fell to the side. How would a few Bs, maybe C's affect my entry? Of the three courses that are in jeopardy, retaking two of them in the Spring would successfully put me a year behind in applying for the program which I just find unacceptable. I don't want to walk into the counselor's office with a sob story but I also don't want to wait a year to apply! I've literally missed a test in each course because of hospital or work requirements, with the rest of my test scores being high and the extra credit, I can probably swing a "B". I need to know if it's worth getting my hopes up or if I should seek out another bridge program that either starts later this year or is willing to accept my scores.

    Micro online what was I thinking?

    I absolutely adore my hybrid Micro course but, then again, the only thing I'm really dreading about Nursing School is that all the classes are physically in a building. I would recommend getting the micro coloring book online, reading any notes your professor posts online and making sure you know the answer to all the chapter objectives.
