Hi all,

I've been waiting anxiously for this school! Has anyone heard back yet? Is it going to be a email notification or letter? And has anyone been admitted to the school itself?

Goodluck ! :)

I just spoke to Theresa from the SON office. She said those who are accepted will be receiving a phone call this week, and those who aren't accepted will get an email.

I was admitted to the university on April 21 and the admission office kept telling me that if we were admitted to the university, that we had to have been admitted to the School of Nursing (they did things different for Nursing Majors this year), and that I should just wait for notification from the SON.

Hope this helps, I've been so anxious!!!

YAY!!! i also got my acceptance email last night... On the web portal it showed if you got accepted to both the school and the nursing program, that is why it took them a while to post it.

Congratulations to you all! I'm so pleased for you, and know you must be very excited, scared and raring to go.

Try to take some time this summer for yourself. When we found out that we were accepted for this Spring semester, we had less than two weeks to get everything ready before orientation started. Go to the beach, the gym, or camping while you can. :)

When you start classes, they will introduce you to the Mentor program. You can be paired up (if you choose) with a student who is a semester or more ahead of you. I was paired up with a wonderful girl who is a third semester, and it's extremely helpful to have that person cheering you on.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Again, Congratulations.

I went by the older criteria.

I had B's in Oral Comm., Anatomy, and Organic Chem, and A's in all the other Pre Nursing pre req's.

I did 100 hrs of volunteer work and had letters from my highschool teachers advising that I was captain of an auxiliary team and also president of the honors society for French.

I had documents showing I took 3 yrs of French in middle and high school.

I did not take the TEAS test.

I'm not sure how many points this accrued, but hope this helps.

Coriander, what's a typical week like during school. (hours per week for lecture and clinicals) I'm, very curious!

Thanks!star.png

A typical week in nursing school... LOL. Okay, I'll do my best.

This is for first semester. I'll go class by class.

N206-Fundamentals: LOVE this class. It's by far my favorite. Studying for exams is quite easy because she has wonderful notes, and gives you outcomes for each section so you can go through those. (I'm not saying the exams are easy!) Clinicals are so much fun... the day before your clinical day, you go to the hospital to pick out a patient (this is only for total patient care days) and then it's' quite a bit of paperwork to get that ready for the next morning. Add in two care plans (which took me at least a fully day to do), and there is a lot of work for this class.

N202-Client Assessment: I also really enjoyed this class. The labs are long, but since there is so much to do, it goes by quickly. There is usually a lot of laughter. The exams are to the point, and the professor's notes are also well-organized and easy to follow.

N200-Informatics: There are only a few assignments during the semester, but be sure to bust your buns on those. She grades hard, very hard.

N208-Pathophysiology: Well, this class wasn't as interesting as I'd hoped it would be. The material is interesting but the way it's taught is extremely difficult to follow. Our class ended up having a "discussion" with the professor before class one day because we were having a TOUGH time with her quizzes, and everything else. USE THE MED-SURG book to supplement the info from the patho book - it's in plain English as opposed to the patho textbook which makes you feel stupid, and that you need a Ph.D. to know what the hell they're talking about. LOL

All in all, I probably take one day off a week to just relax and do absolutely nothing. I haven't gone to the gym because I've been exhausted. Currently my brain feels like it's leaking out my ears from so much information. I usually spend a few hours a day (3-6) on homework or reading or various assignments or paperwork.

It's hard, but it's absolutely worth it. Every second is worth it, even the bad ones. You know you worked your butt off to get in, and it's a joyous ride for the most part.

p.s. I forgot to add this part: Form study groups. Even if they're small, they are incredibly helpful. I am not typically a study group person, but it's enjoyable getting together with a few friends and discussing the material, and then getting sidetracked with other things. :)
