    Hello future nurses!! Congrats on getting in! I'm a second semester student at GC if anyone has any questions. I know the process is all very stressful and exciting at the same time. So I'm here to try to ease some of your anxiety. Again, congrats!!!

    LAVC Fall-2015 Cohort! Who else applied?

    Yeah I submitted it already but it doesn't seem fair "lottery wise" for the people who haven't even been invited to take the teas yet. People are being accepted before all applications are considered complete. I just called and the lady said they are running the lottery for the first 40 people who applied with complete files. I was told I was number 4 when I registered so I hope I hear something soon. My friend attends their program and says they are so disorganized there,

    Dreamon8, when did you submit your letter of intent? I'm wondering if the livescan deadline is the same for everyone. My deadline to submit the letter of intent was Friday May 29th. I can't imagine them only giving us Monday and Tuesday the get it all done...

    Well that's not fair because I didn't get mine in time. I'll see what they say. I work on the 2nd so the 3rd is the only day I can do it.

    Did any of you guys get instructions on where and when the deadline is for fingerprinting and drug screening? I didn't receive anything after I submitted my letter of intent and I'm worried it's due before orientation on the 5th

    Livescan- nursing school (arrests vs. actual charges.

    Thanks Mr. Murse. Yes, I'm in Ca. I agree with you, I don't think it is that bad.i just don't really want to have to disclose any information about the arrest of I don't have to. I don't mind telling the I got a ticket for disturbing the peace... Loud noise. But I really don't want to get into the arrest. I wish I knew for certain what they can see.

    Livescan- nursing school (arrests vs. actual charges.

    In and just wanted to add that by the time I have to deal with the BRN (take my NCLEX) it will be Spring 2018 so the charge will be 7 years old. Don't know if that makes a difference.
  14. About 5 years ago I was arrested for domestic violence (no physical abuse took place at all between my husband and I, it was a disagreement And my brilliant idea was to get the police over to mediate-it was more a matter of the officers asking one of us to leave and neither of us would...being brats I suppose, that really bit us in the butts because they decided to just take us both in) we were fingerprinted and everything and since it was a Saturday, you guessed it- we had to stay over the weekend. Well once we sat down with the DA separately) we told her what happened and she basically laughed and said okay we will drop it to disturbing the peace (infraction) and you will plead no contest, get slapped with a 50 dollar fine (but not have to pay it because of time served) fast forward 5 years. I was a clinical care extender 3 years ago for one year (internship within a hospital livescan required) I've worked in 2 hospitals as a CNA -livescans were required cNA certificate required me to go through ca department of public health. Have worked in skilled nursing facilities background checks were required. Now keep in mind I always list the charge on every application (not the arrest tho) I do this because like 4 years ago I applied to a hardware store and didn't list it and it came back as falsification of my application.i had no idea infractions were considered misdenors. So now I list it on everything. My my question is, I just was accepted to nursing school, with the BRN, do they only see the charge , or do that see the arrest? The arrest was domestic violence and that just sounds so bad, how ever the charge was dropped/ reduced to a lesser charge of disturbing the peace. I'm wondering if the livescan check is more detailed than the one that's conducted for CNAs, I also wonder if it will even show since I already work in hospitals and haven't had any problems. Anyone with itch insight or similar experience please let me know.real information please, not guesses or opinions. I already drive myself crazy guessing. Thanks everyone.

    Mes7kk I think most of the people who posted to this forum applied to the generic ADN program. Not the RN/LVN. Maybe you could start a new forum with a title to attract others who have applied to that particular program to get more insight on what might be going on or maybe try calling PCC. The student worker told me that some times mistakes happen and not all emails reach their destination. Now would be a good time to call to make sure your email mistakenly didn't reach you.

    LAVC Fall-2015 Cohort! Who else applied?

    It's my second time applying only because I wasn't actually ready to apply anywhere last spring because I had my baby in January but my best friend (who was accepted there 4.0) convinced me to apply. It was a good idea because they invited me to take the teas which is the indicator that you've passed the first round by meeting the cut score. That was enough for me. I never took the teas on their deadline so I wasn't accepted. Anywho, I have a 3.6. Hope that's helpful.
