    Alvin Community College (Texas)

    Anyone have an idea of how the class schedule is the first semester of the LVN program?
  2. I was looking on the Alvin CC page and it says the GPA is based on the completed courses and not those in progress. With that being said, has ACC admitted anyone with A&P in progress? I know they say in theory you can have a 4.0 in the other courses (ENGL & PSYC) but should a prospective student bother applying with the aforementioned A&P in progress? In that scenario ACC only says that all prerequisites be complete prior to the start of class. Their #1 criteria seems to be HESI scores followed by completed prerequisite GPA.

    Pathway Advice please

    That's awesome. I did speak to the nursing school and you can in fact test out as a CNA after the first semester of the ADN program and after the first two semesters and a summer session, can take the NCLEX-PN. I wish I didn't have to wait until January 2020 but that's life. I will be 44 when I start school. I'm here in Texas.

    That is my initial instinct. I was somehow thinking that there might be an unforeseen advantage of being an LVN first. Part of this stems from me being in this industry for 30 years and growing to tired of it. It's why I ended up a CNA years ago. I know as a salaried manager I can hold this job until starting school in January 2020 while knocking out the prereqs. The hours aren't my problem. The problem is the lack of any control over my schedule. It is my ideal situation that I would be able to have a schedule that permits me to spend a reasonable amount of time with my family while they're still young. Boys are now 5 and my wife (which if I tell her age I die, 😂).

    Pathway Advice please

    Unfortunately, life changes have me.looking at these options for nursing school. Option 1. LVN Aug 2019 - Aug 2020 Transition Program Jun 2021 - Jun 2022 Option 2. EMT-B now EMT-P Aug 2019 - Aug 2020 Transition Program Jun 2021 - Jun 2022 Option 3. A&P 1 this summer ADN Jan 2020 - Jun 2021 I'm desperate to get out of working 70hr weeks in restaurants. The first two options just get me away from the industry sooner. Looking at it on paper I should go with Option 3. But I welcome your opinions on the other options.
  7. I didn't see a thread for this and it's a small program. I do want to get info on if anyone is applying, weekly schedules (those already there), the impending commute (it won't bother me, I drove from Jersey Village to Conroe 7 days a week for work) and what to expect.
  8. Good morning, everyone. I didn't see a thread for this and it's a small program. I do want to get info on if anyone is applying, weekly schedules, the impending commute (it won't bother me as I drove from Jersey Village to Conroe 7 days weekly for work) and what to expect. Haven't got in but want information nonetheless.

    From my limited knowledge, it must depend on where exactly you apply. Pure odds alone would suggest NH as the "easiest" to get into with 120 slots. CF one of the hardest with around a third that total.

    I ask the points question here because I know y'all have more experience with it than I. Say i were to apply at (from 1st to 3rd) CF, NH & T. If I submit with a score of 7.22 do I have a shot?

    No. To my knowledge, A&P I and Engl 1 are the classes and HESI is the exam. Maybe they take the higher of the English courses, but the scoring sheet is online.

    B Fernandez AP 1 A which gave 16 points Engl 1 B which gave 9 Total is 25 ÷ 7 = 3.57 HESI 88 ÷ 25 = 3.52 Added up is 7.09 (I think)
