Posted

yup..i thought id be the 1st to starting this thread-never too early !!!;)

well guys and girls ..it is time to congratulate those that have worked so hard that have been accepted in every fall 2011 rn program. great job:redpinkhe:redpinkhe:nurse::nurse:

it is time to move on to the next fall and spring round of movers and shakers :yeah::yeah:

bring on the new introductions

:idea::idea:

Calling all Coyote Pre Nursing Students :yeah:

Any one here that is Pre Nursing at Weatherford College or will be attending Weatherford College??? :nurse::nurse:

Hi there Coyote ... WHOOO HHOOO .. Good Luck to You.. I am Pre Nursing but a Fall 2012 Hopeful

How were your Pre Req classes at WC???

My prereqs went great, glad to be finished. My TEAS test today did not fair so well!

I only got a 78%..... That is so frustrating :( The science portion killed me, alot of these things I have never seen before and I don't think the study guide does a good job of preparing you.

oh simcr i can tell you are disappointed with that teas .... you can retest before september right??

you can retest the science section only (i think):heartbeat

did you get the teas v study pack with the practice tests ??? that's what ill be getting. glad to hear that your prereqs went great!!! ...

i am taking 13 hrs this semester english,elem alg,ap1 & lab,psych. i am still applying on the feb deadline for fall 2012 with my alg ,apii and micro in progress. i am going to start cna school on mon and will be done by july 26th my summerii math class was cancelled since not enough to make the class.this will work out for me since i was going to be attending wc cont ed cna school every sat 8-5 (would not have been cna till dec 2011) this way i will have 6 mos cna under my hat when i apply. (provided i can land this part time deal i am working on )

ps

i have heard thru several nursing educators(not at wc) or what they eluded to in conversation is that there will be a new selection type of process coming our way.. since there are so many applicants for nursing school, it is getting harder and harder to narrow the selection process by gpa & entrance test scores .. here comes the group interviews,one on one interviews and looking at those that have taken their own initiatives to be a part of the nursing profession (cna,phelb,pctechs) next we might have to be making a creative u tube video appeal speech :jester::idea::yeah::lol2:just kidding

What do you mean September? I thought the deadline was July 31st to WC??

We are headed on vacation and will not return until after deadline (if its july) so i had to settle with the one test and my score. I will research the September and double check.

You are super busy! Good luck!

I hope that interviews do take place, i think it is needed to truly see the person instead of just taking points. Another thing I wish WC would do is give points for taking your prereqs at WC like Tarleton does, I think that is fair since we are already attending that college.

I may be wrong too on the September deadline..I'll double check that one :confused: Gosh Vacation sounds good in this heat!!! I think the interviews used to be done years ago and at some point just started on the point system of GPA and Entrance Test Scores. You are so right about giving points for prereqs at the college that you are planning to attend for any degree plan.(Nursing to General) I hear really good things about Tarleton! I am of the mindset right now whatever it takes!!! I am applying for the ADN spot and the LVN spot. However I need to be a RN that is what I will do. Even if it means I just bridge LVN to RN:heartbeat:heartbeat The end result is what counts.

Well I just added Internet Medical Terminology to my Fall Line up!!:clown::clown:

You have great plans. I am 38 and i really just need to settle into a career finally! I have been to college once and have a degree in accounting, then realized yuk, i hate sitting in an office all day. I will probably apply to Tarleton also but would rather go with WC due to price.

I took Medical Terminology online last summer, it was super easy.

Your fall schedule is the exact same as my daughter (yeah...get to go to college with my kid) she is taking all classes you are except medical terminology because she is in that class right now.

Have you taken a TEAS test yet, I took one in January just to see what it was like and how far off i was, after being out of school for so long. I did get the study guide and i took the online practice test as well. I just with I would have paid more attention to my classes senior year instead of boys.:uhoh3:

I did not take Algebra at WC, my daughter says ** because hes HOT! lol

*** i thought was the only one to teach micro, that is who i had. You won't need a book in his class, he has made his own notes and you just print them from a website. The class is alot of info and a little hard. I was frustrated most of the semester because i coulnd make above a 87 on his test but the last two i finally made A's, i was determined, so i pulled off an A in his class.

I heard *** was hard but i did not have him so that is secondhand info. For me *** was great, he tends to get off topic alot but I learned alot and was able to pull off A's in both AP 1 and 2.

I took AP 2 and micro in the spring semester together and did ok but they were the only 2 classes i was taking. Good luck in the fall i hope you enjoy your classes.

It looks as though we will apply for Fall 2012 together since I don't think I have enough points for Spring. It is completely discouraging, I have maxed out points on GPA and core classes, the only way for me to earn points is the TEAS test. i will probably study real hard over fall break and then see if I can up my score.

Have you heard from others what WC TEAS scores are looking like?

I have never seen **, so just taking the young girls info... go for it, there is nothing wrong with winking and looking!

I took concepts of physical fitness in the mini mester in May. I went to class 6 times and the rest was online. I wanted to take something physical like aerobics but I needed that point for the core reqs so i had to take it now.

I am sitting at 16 points (only got 5 on the TEAS) and with only 20 spots there is no way i will get in.

The first TEAS i took had acid/basic, mitosis, meosis, and some other things so I studied all that and the test i took yesterday, did not have any of that on it.... the test are all over the board and there is really no ryme or reason to it. Im glad they don't require you to pass the science section to apply.

I got 78% overall

Reading 92%

Math 75% (don't know what happened, i do have an accounting degree :)

scienc 61%

grammer 70%

I would love to see some numbers from other apps for weatherford college. I will really have to step it up for next fall

SIMCR .. I really sense the frustration since none of us want to be or stay put on the sidelines..I am just ready to get the show on the road too!!! That is why I am going to be applying for the ADN and LVN program(i'll PM you what KL just sent me for that ) Fall 2012 I will be in a program(positive thoughts) and the end result is all that matters:idea::heartbeat:heartbeat:yeah:

girl you did good on that TEASV it is a hard test ..but if it were me I'd retake it when I could to see if I can better my score If you retake the TEASV and score the Math to 85 and science to 80 and Grammar to 85 how many points would that increase??

We gotta get you over that 17 point mark!!! DEAL!!:D We Coyotes need to be a support system going into this

If memory serves .. there were a few 17 pointers that got accepted in the past year

I have always been weak in Math except for $$ and Budget Forecasting,Sales Projections ,P&L's ..but perhaps(as Mr Tex42 says) in my Cougar age range some eye candy would help me conquer my fear:coollook::redbeathe:yeah:

Where is the Vacation???

Quote with TOS

I will definately retake the test for Fall admission next year, that gives me months to practice. The part on the math that killed me was metric conversions..yuk...they didn't even teach that in school in my day.

We leave on Sunday for 25 days, we are headed to Glacier national park in Montana and then Grand Tetons and Jackson Hole in Wyoming.. Backpacking, whitewater rafting, and temps in the high of 75

Hello Simcr and Tex! I have applied for spring 2012 also! I sent my packet in a few weeks ago. I will also apply at TCC and TWU. TWU is my first pick cuz I really want a BSN. I've heard it's so hard to go back after you get settled into an RN. either way, I will just be happy to get in somewhere :)

Good luck to you!!
