FSS 118 - Freshman Seminar-Nursing Interest


Intended primarily for first semester college students with a particular interest in nursing, students will engage in an exploration of issues related to college success and will gain an understanding of the requirements for admissions to the nursing program. This course will assist students in engaging themselves in the college community; understanding diversity and relationship dimensions; and understanding college resources, policies, and procedures. It will also assist students in acquiring a self-understanding of one's own strengths and intelligences and how these can be applied to academic goals, wellness issues, and issues related to future academic plans, both within TC3 as well as following a degree at TC3. Students wishing to enroll after their first semester must request permission of the instructor. Because of the similarity of the course content, students may not receive credit toward their degree for ACAD 100, ACAD 150, or any other FSS course taken in combination with this course. Prerequisites: Prior completion or concurrent enrollment in ENGL 099 and RDNG 099 if required by placement testing. 1 Cr. (1 Lec.) Fall semester.
