    Hey all! Just applied to NAUs spring program as well. I chose Tucson as my first choice, and Flagstaff as a second choice. I don't care where I am, as long as I'm in! lol I scored 93.5 on the HESI, have a 3.7 gpa, and 2 full time health care jobs. Still nervous though as I have 5 classes in progress.........but if I can score that high without even finishing my bio's that should say something right?! I hope they look thoroughly enough at each application to notice things like that. My IP classes are all I have against me. Ugh never been so nervous in all my life guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is killing me

    I sent my application in the last week of September and took the Hesi on Sept 29th, overall I thought it was very easy! I got 92% in all my sciences and 100% on my math section. Overall I got a 92.3 on the Hesi so I am happy about that as I was stressing big time over that test. I am very nervous and the wait is killing me! I got a 92.3 on the Hesi, have a 3.8 GPA, and only have 1 class IP, and have volunteering experience at a hospice here in Tucson. I applied for Tucson as my first choice and Flag as my 2nd choice. How is everyone else feeling right now?

    cliff that's awesome your stats are great! i would be amazed if you didn't get in. i feel confident in my stats too but no matter how good you do the wait is still unbearable isnt it!? i think we have about 3 weeks wait left! if you look at previous threads of nursing applicants youll see most the people on here got accepted, so that's encouraging.

    im not too sure about UA or yuma, but NAU doesn't take previous health care experience into account. its purely a point system of hesi, gpa, ip vs complete etc. and as long as you have their minimum requirements for health care/volunteer experience then you get full points in those sections. just don't want people without previous experience to be discouraged

    if anyone gets any word on how the application process is going, averages etc, then please post it! ha i doubt we will hear anything but its worth a try. and good luck to everyone! were almost there!

    Hey everyone! Just curious...did anyone else besides me have NAU as their primary?

    Hope everyone is hanging in there. I am routing for everyone on this thread. You all sound like you have great credentials and I hope that we all get in where we want to be the first time around!

    Happy almost November, by the way! That means we only have about 3 weeks until letters go out. Does anyone know if the letters are sent to out school or home address?

    NAU is my primary too wooot! and im pretty sure they send the letters directly to you. if you have time you should read some of the nau application threads on here from previous semesters, i think it gives a good idea what to expect and they have answers for a lot of the questions people on this thread have

    hey guys! it's great to hear from all of you, and it’s nice to know that others are in the same boat making the journey to the nau nursing program. i also listed nau as my primary! all this waiting is killing me! i hope we all get in!

    i heard something exciting from my friend that i thought i’d share with you guys… she said that she talked to one of the nursing advisors yesterday, and they said they were going to try and get the letters in the mail by the end of this week. that way we can know if we’re in or not before we have to register for spring classes. so, maybe we actually won't have to wait until the week before thanksgiving!! she said they were going to 'try' (key word) to get them in the mail, so it may not happen and we'd have to wait... but it would be great to find out sooner rather than later!

    fingers crossed! good luck all!

    Leahheart28- I just heard the same thing about letters coming by the end of the week!! i was getting on here to see if anyone else had heard. that is so crazy!!!!! before it was too long of a wait but now its way too soon haha im not mentally prepared for this!! well if it is true then good luck to you! and i hope to see everyone on here with acceptance letters!! there are plenty of seats and i dont think it would be that crazy if everyone on here got in

    ChrissyLove123- cool im actually glad they take it into account. i dont have any experience but it wouldnt be fair to those who do. i always thought it was weird that they didnt.
