    ARC LVN to RN Summer 2021

    Anyone else out there waiting for a response on your application?
  3. I was an LVN to RN bridge student with one semester left when I had to withdrawal for personal reasons. I left on good terms and had planned on returning the following year to finish fourth semester. The director of the program said that I needed to pass the re-entry exams in order to pick up where I left off. I passed one exam with flying colors but missed the second by one point. I was told that this was my last shot, and to try other schools. I was devastated because i had been so close to finishing. After several unsuccessful meetings with the director of the program, I decided to move up the chain of command. I wrote an appeal letter and sat through many meetings with the faculty. Those attempts led nowhere, and I was told multiple times that my only other option was to attend a different program. Now that I have come to terms with the fact that I won't be able to finish school where I started, I am left to wonder what options, if any, are available to me. At our final meeting, the director informed me that transferring into another program's final semester may be an option. I am curious to know if anyone out there has transfered from one program to another, or know someone that has. In my opinion, I was treated unfairly in this situation, so starting another bridge program from the beginning just doesn't sit well with me. I have one semester left. Is there anyone out there who has been in a similar situation, and if so, can you offer any advice, or tell me it it worked out for you? This past year has been very difficult for me, so I am hoping for some good news. Thanks in advance!

    What does San Diego pay?

    I work in psych in Sacramento and RNs start out at about $45-50 per hour full time with benefits. (DOE). Per diem would be more like $50+ per hour. If you have ICU experience, depending on which hospital you work at, the lower end would be $50/hr and up. Kaiser, Sutter, Dignity Health and UC Davis all have competitive rates. Good luck!
  6. Anybody in the same boat? I have always struggled with test anxiety, which is the culprit for my not-so-great grades...is there anyone out there who has taken the TEAS test with grades like mine and done ok? I could use a little encouragement right about now!

    Waiting...and worried

    I am 32 and have often felt the same way about age. It has always bothered me. I had my daughter at 19, dropped out of college, went back here and there. I finally got my LVN in 2008 and am now almost ready to apply (if i get a passing rate on my TEAS next week.:) My coworker, who is in his 40's, just had his first RN program orientation. He was worried about being the oldest in the group, but said he felt relieved when he saw the group. Basically he said there were all ages of people. Education is important, and nursing is a career that will always be in demand. Feel proud of yourself for taking the next step! The wait is something that no one can control. Just know that it will happen when it's supposed to. I will be in that position soon, so I hope I can take my own advice!
  8. I am thinking about applying and I was wondering (hoping) that someone out there has some info to give me I'm interested in knowing about the program hours, where the clinicals are held, etc., if anyone happens to have that info. Thanks in advance!!!
