    Hi everyone! I just got accepted to the Tucson campus for fall 2014!!! And my science score was a 60- the minimum score you can get. So I was pretty surprised I got in, I walked away from the Kaplan feeling pretty disappointed in myself. But after talking to others, apparently many don't do well on the science portion. I think my gpa of 3.9 is what helped me. I'm so excited to start, but nervous too!

    Hi there twss2323... Thanks for all of the advice you've given us prospective students! It's a blessing to us! I'm considering applying to the Tucson campus for the spring 2015 semester. Could you please give me an idea of the hours per week you spend in clinicals and studying?

    First semester clinical/lab was 8 hours a week, another 4 hour lab, and then a 4 hour lecture. There's also a couple online classes. I'd say 30+ hours with reading, assignments, and studying.

    Hi there! Do any current students have any advise for those of us preparing for first semester? Any topics we really need to polish up on before we jump in?

    Welcome! Sign up for a mentor when you go to orientation. Us second semesters will be mentoring you all. You will love your clinical Professor, -----------------. She is by far the most terrifying, hilarious, and caring person I have had so far. Yes she is all 3!

    If you would like to get a jump ahead, get your patho and pharmacology books. Read read read. You will not have enough time to read all that is assigned. Get practicing on medical calculations and knowing your meds.

    My other tip for you new students, make friends with your cohorts. These are going to be the people you spend the most time with for the next 2.5 years. You will need their support.

    And don't be late. Period. It is only tolerated for the first week and then you are asked to leave the class for the day. One student wasn't able to give her presentation for because she was 10 min. late.

    Im a senior in the NAU Traditional BSN program. I would be happy to answer any questions you guys have! I also highly recommend going to the first SNA (Student Nurses Association) meeting and signing up to get a mentor. It helps alot! I don't know if you can private message on here, but feel free to pm me if you have any questions!

    Hi!
    My name is Ebone and I am applying for the Spring 16 start and I know this post is old, but I was hoping I could still get some advice! I currently have a 3.75 GPA and I haven't taken my Kaplan yet but I'm going to study my butt off to get at least an 85 overall. The thing I was wondering the most is if my GPA is competitive enough! I'm so nervous, I literally have never wanted anything this bad I just want to get accepted into a nursing program so badly. So if there is anyone that is in the program or just go accepted I would greatly appreciate some advice.
