    ASU Post Bacc - 2019

    Our schedule for fall was a little wonky. It's hard to really give an accurate description because classes got switched around for days/times for the first half versus second half and a bunch of classes weren't required. But consistently we had class Thursday Friday from 7:30 to 10:15 and then Thursday 12-1:15 and Friday 10:45-1:15 followed by 1:30 to 2:45 (sometimes). Then Tuesday Wednesday on certain days you have lab/clinical for complex care the first half of the semester. Then the second half you self schedule for immersion/transition to practice. We also had one easy leadership class online. Monday's we had clinical for community health. You have a lot more free time and wiggle room in fall. But your schedule could be different as your spring schedule is slightly different than ours was. But you'll find out your summer and fall schedule about halfway through spring semester I think? In terms of professors, it could change. They were all pretty approachable and are fine if you call/text for clarification so take advantage of that as needed. scheduling a meeting for office hours is helpful to review old exams!

    Over the summer it's pretty much mandatory to go to every class and you have class or clinical every day of the week.

    I didn't need the access code last year either. When in doubt, emailing the professors to ask specifically if they derive any course points from feature of the access code website is smart to do. A lot of times in the community college coursework there is one generic syllabus for a class and the school tells them what book they have to list and it's usually the newest one with all the bells and whistles. If you email the teacher they can clarify for you (:

    It's straightforward. You're told what classes you have to sign up for and you take them together at the same time. The only difference is your clinical group. That'll probably be multiples of 8. On blackboard the class section numbers will correspond to each clinical group 1-6 (or however many your cohort has). Make sure you're viewing the full list of all classes instead of just open or write down all the numbers so you make sure you know which is 1,2,3,4,5,6 etc. if you decide to form a group ahead of time instead of randomly choosing try to coordinate that through Facebook. Inevitably not everyone might know that some people wanna be together already. People were usually pretty good about swapping out of a group and into another "random" group, at least that first semester. I think we had groups shift around every semester just based on people deciding they wanted out of some groups or times/days conflicted with something else in their schedule. But it is first come first serve for the clinical groups. Everyone signs up at the same time! You also sign up kindly for clinical placements (each clinical group will correspond to a site unknown to you/the program yet). Once those sites have been identified it can be difficult to swap around because your info has already been sent to be sites and it can get confusing. Some sites will only take a certain number of people so you could potentially get bumped (I think they asked for volunteers when this happened).

    I am happy to meet with you guys and can see if some of my friends/classmates would be willing to meet up as well. We have our last day of class on November thirtieth so it will most likely be after that. Last year we tried coordinating by adding a poll to the old class's Facebook group and having current and future students give their preferences. Do you think something like that would work?

    UNC Nurse Residency / New Grad Summer 2018

    Hey guys! I was just curious if we need letters of recommendation for our application. I haven't created a profile/account to begin yet, so I was hoping someone who has already applied could provide that information. I want to be able to give my letter writers some time to craft a good one, if need be. I couldn't find anywhere on the website about it. It just said a single resume and single cover letter outlining the top two unit choices was recommended of us. Thanks!!

    You will definitely have to live off student loans and rely on friends/family to help you watch the kids and/or get them to/from childcare on days where the hours are long (finishing at the hospital at 7:30 pm, having to arrive places by 6:30 A.M. depending on the hours of your childcare site)

    A lot of people commute a ways to class and clinical.

    FON 241?

    And I took it as an 8 week, and it was just fine! Definitely one of the easier prerequisites, and I actually found it interesting!

    FON 241?

    I did not have to take proctored exams when I took this class online. I did it at a different Maricopa community college, but now I can't rememebr which one. I think Mesa!

    Yeah in the medical track I'd prefer the palliative care unit, but I don't know how much those preferences get taken into consideration!

    Vanderbilt Nurse Residency Winter 2019

    I'm trying to decide between the medical track or the oncology track! I am in a three semester program as opposed to four semester, so I'm happy applying at the end of second semester doesn't count too much against me. In terms of clinicals, I will have community health, complex care (ICU/ED), and my immersion left in the fall.

    I honestly felt like the teas secrets book went over things just fine. There is so much content that the book can not possibly touch on all of it. I also have a science background so maybe some of my ease came from familiarity and being able to draw on more detailed facts using previous knowledge. Nonetheless, the TEAS does not go into extremely detailed processes, at least not when I took it.
