    Anyone know the cutoff for fall 2011 at North Harris? I heard it was low like 10.90? is that right? I just wanted to make sure. Anyone thinks that the cutoff would be the same also this coming up?

    Do you have to attend the M-F 8-5 for three full weeks at the start of the program? This is a problem for me. I can do one week, maybe two but not three full weeks due to my part time job and lack of childcare for that length of time.

    Hi Browneyes,
    I can't say for sure what your schedule will be for your entering nursing class this Fall, because they have done it a little different for the past 2 entering classes. As far as I know they plan to do the same next Fall as they did for us in 2011. The labs are everyday for 3 weeks, but even though they say they are all day, they're NOT. They tell everyone to be prepared to spend all day there and this is standard, but the reality is once you are placed into a clinical group, your whole group will have a set lab at the same time, each day for approx. 2 hours each day, but be advised it may change every week. For example mine was from 8:00-10:00, everyday the first week and then the last week they rotated the groups around so the same people didn't have to be there so early and my group had lab from 10-12 that week. The problem is you will not know what time you will have lab until right before school begins, thats why they tell you at orientation that you have to be prepared to be there M-F 8-4. I know this really sucks! but unfortunately it is just the way it is in the nursing program. It is culture shock at first, because it is simply not like regular school, but after the those 1st 3 weeks you will follow your regular schedule. Lab is really fun though and you learn alot!!
    Good luck
