Trying to get ahead at ACC

  1. I am starting the ACC (Austin Community College) ADN program in the fall and am looking for info as to what to study this summer to get ahead? I have heard it is a very tough program and I want to get a head start. Anybody out there gone/going throught this program?

    Hello Jimmmy! It's a little late on the response but I just discovered this website. I am also starting the ACC ADN program this fall. My best guess is to make sure you know your dosage calculations. Go the The ADN Homepage, then Students, and then Level 1 Bulletin. There are 5 dosage reviews. I take that as a really big hint!

    Also, review your stuff from Nursing Skills! I think the instructors will get frustrated if we don't at least know the basics, Oh and PERSON! Remember that? Explore the Bulletin page, there is a lot of info.

    Maybe I'll see you at orientation in August! Good Luck!


    If God brings you to it, He'll help you through it!

    congrats on getting into the program. i'm living in vancouver now, but am a born and raised texan and i was living in austin going to acc for the 3 years before i moved up here. i thought about doing the acc nursing program but there is a HUGE waiting list (or there was at the time) so, i passed.

    anyway, best of luck. i've only heard wonderful things about the program (like it's MUCH better than UT's).
