So I guess I'm the only one...

Posted

...on this forum that applied to Sandhills CC. Oh well, any advice from any nursing students? Studying, and clinicals. Just really bored and want to chat. Thanks.

Always up for good conversation -- haven't frequented allnurses in quite some time....new formats, etc....is there a way for us to chat on here? email me anytime! best of luck & maybe we'll run into each other sometime!!!

Thanks for the well wishes! I don't think we can chat though, but I am really enjoynig the site.

Sorry to see you haven't gotten any responses about the school and it's program. A while back I had started some threads asking about a few others and didn't get much of a response either so don't feel bad. I guess Allnurses isn't very popular with NC students?

Are there many applicants applying into the program?

I don't know how many applicants are applying, but the NCBON website has only 140 available seats for their program. I called the school, and was told that the letters went out friday, or if they didn't go out friday they would go out Monday (tomorrow). So I should know by the end of the week if I got in or not.

Before I even applied to the program, I met with my advisor and she said that since my grades were good and I scored high on the HOBET, that my chances were pretty good for getting in. But I don't wanna get my hopes up.

Howdy....

I haven't applied for the Fall 2009 class, but I will be applying to the Fall 2010 class. My significant-other is currently in her second semester of the program. She is doing well, and puts the time in. So far she has lost approx 10 people in her class, for one reason or another.

Hello- thanks for joining in. :-)

Did she get in without waiting or reapplying? I hope in southeast NC high grades are enough to get a seat in a program. I know in other places a great GPA can only get you a shot in, but no guarantees.

I'm hoping to get into Watts in Durham, but if not I'm going to apply to some schools closer to the Fayetteville area.

Central Carolina, Robeson, Sandhills, etc. Maybe even Johnston although it's a bit farther out.

I hope good grades are enough too, dreamon. So bunji, did your SO have to reapply, or was she excepted the first time around? I was wondering how the instructors were as well. I expect it to be really tough, but do the instructors do their best in making sure the students are prepared, and that they aren't just collecting a paycheck?

Also, I saw that Central Carolina had a 100% pass rate for the NCLEX, and I also considered applying to Robeson, but couldn't get anyone to respond to my email, and the phone number was wrong.

I just took another look at Robeson's 5 year pass rates, and I don't like what I saw. Maybe that in addition to not being able to contact them is a sign.

SJack011: To answer your questions, no she did not have to reapply. She had already completed A&P I & II, Micro, Psych & her other electives, so she only had the Nursing classes to take. I believe this helped her on the Stage II College Course Worksheet. She has people fresh outta high school, and people in their early 40's, with and without college. So I'm not sure what exactly they use as criteria...

Thanx for the info bunji. I got my acceptance letter today, so I guess good grades were enough. I finished most of the corequisites too, but I still have to take cna I, English 112 and a business course. I also have to get CPR certfied. I am going to have a busy summer, but I'm looking forward to it!

I was looking at the CNA I as well, and the SO told me that 1/2 of her class didn't take the course, they just took the test and got the certification.

Something to think about...

Congratulations SJack011- please keep the board informed of how you like the program. Good luck!

Thanx dreamon, I will.

hey Bunji, who is eligible to take the test? I don't have any nursing experience, and am thinking only people that have some experience would be able to take it. I have a meeting with my advisor in 2 weeks, so I guess I could ask her then. TIA for the info.

I am a second year adn student at SCC now. My advice...

Class:

Read the material in the books. Listen during lecture and make notes on your powerpoints. Ask questions - there's usually several others that have the same question that are too intimidated to ask.

Clinical:

Tell the teacher if you don't understand or need help. They will usually help walk you thru as long as you don't pretend. Start early on any projects, especially ones that involve getting information from another person. I stayed up til 2 in the morning working on a project that is due that morning.

Our teachers are there for you. They want you to succeed.

Good luck!!!

If you have any questions, post em!
