    Hey Girls- I GOT IN!!! YAY!
    I just got an acceptance package yesterday. Wahoo!! With it came a very long book list for first quarter.... so I thought I'd start by seeing if either of you were looking to sell your books... I'm not sure if they carry over to other quarters or not. But, worth it to ask!!!
    How did you both do for your first quarter? Anything in particular you'd recommend I do/not do myself? I'm SO excited!!!! And one question... are you allowed a choice for clinicals, for either the day or night shift? Or, do they just assign you? thanks!!!

    Congrats yup we still need to use the books through out the quarter so we can't sell it. On first quarter they will assign the clinical site based on your location, if you really need to be assigned to a specific location you just need to talk to the instructors they might be able to accomodate your request, but still not sure.

    Just do your best It needs a lot of time and dedication to pass One thing for sure, you will be trained by the best instructors. Karen and Shannon are great mentors

    Good Luck!

    Hey girls- I have a couple questions..

    On my list of things to get before school starts it doesn't say a stethoscope.. any clue why? Also, can you tell me what days your clinicals were first quarter and what the time choices were? I saw the schedule in the office, but forgot to copy it down! Thanks!

    You definitely need to buy a stethoscope which will be used for the entire program, the rest of the materials will be provided by the lab. For clinical hours, it really depends on which group you'll be assigned but it's usually 6-2 p.m scheduled at the later part of the quarter

    I am in 4th quarter now and loving the program. Can't believe how fast this has gone. Feel free to send me a PM if you have specific questions. The instructors are amazing and the experience has been very positive.

    I finally got to put my part 1 application in yesterday. I am in Anatomy this quarter with Marrs. Love HER! There are rumurs that the entire program at EVCC is changing pre reqs and also on acceptance. I have heard that they will start requiring the TEAS and will use that primarily. Also, Repeats are no longer a penalty. I have a 4.0 in my sciences so far and a Cum 3.7 overall. I am looking to apply for next Winter Quarter. I could do Fall if I push myself, but I think Winter might be a better fit for me.. not quite sure yet. I am also thinking of applying at Lake WA as well and possibly Bellevue.

    Anyone still in the EVCC program or have graduated? Things you loved, hated?

    Anyone going to Everett?

    For anyone considering it, here's what got me in to their nursing program.

    Accumulative GPA: 3.26
    Science GPA: 2.92 (with a few repeats)
    TEAS: 82.0%

    Not stellar by any means, but I made it! Plus this upcoming spring quarter we move into the brand new building. Can't wait!!!
