Northern Arizona University Fall 2014

  1. Hello Everyone! There's no forum for us NAU students applying for the fall 2014 semester, so I started one! I'm curious what scores everyone is applying with and what campus you are applying to. I got a 81% on my Kaplan with a 65% on my science I have a around a 3.89 GPA and am applying to Flagstaff campus. How about everyone else?

    I had similar stats when I applied to the Tucson program, and I got in on my first try. I'm now in my fourth semester. Good luck to you!

    I am currently an alternate with these stats:

    82% on the Kaplan with an 80% on the science portion
    3.64 GPA

    Since your GPA is significantly higher I would be surprised if you didn't get in.

    It's good to hear from everyone! Do you mind if I ask what you got on your science portion? Since nau looks so heavily on your science portion, I was wondering if you got in with a lower science score?

    Also, does anyone know if this is the only forum for NAU's fall 2014 nursing program?

    I have applied to Yuma campus only with 85 on my science (89 overall). I have read on previous forums that Kaplan in mid to high 80s and GPA above 3.6 is competitive.

    Hi guys! I'm currently in the program at the Tucson campus. If you have any questions about the program, I'd be happy to answer them. Good luck to all of you! And for those of you anxiously waiting, we got our letters on May 1st last year. Don't confuse acceptance to the University as acceptance to the program (it's easy to do), you've gotta wait for that nice, fat acceptance packet to arrive!

    The Yuma campus is great. Only 10 students per cohort. All clinicals are in Yuma. YRMC offers an extern position after your first year of school. Great clinical and didactic instructors. Also less applicants. If your willing to live in the armpit of AZ I highly recommend applying there.

    I'd love to have an idea of what the first semester looks like in the program. I know it's rigorous but how many hours spent in lab, clinicals, class, etc?

    Does anyone know of anyone getting in with a lower science score? I know NAU looks highly on that and didn't know if I could even be considered with that.

    Since no one has replied here, I will say that with all my time on these boards, I've not see anyone get in with a score in that range. I know this Is not the news you wanted to hear. I will say that when I took the Kaplan studying the specific areas for the science really helped me. If i remember correctly, it was all physiology. Cardio, urinary, immune, fluid balance. Mostly bio 202 related. Hope that helps.

    first semester i had:

    Nur 205 Fundamentals of Nursing, 4 hr lecture/week
    205L Fundamentals lab/clinical, 8 hr/ week
    330 Intro to the profession (something of that sort): 4hr lecture/week
    214L health assessment, 4hr lab/ week
    214 health assessment, online
    215 Pharmacology, online
    Bio 320 Pathophysiology, online

    Your class schedule will probably be similar to this with the exception of patho and pharm. from what I heard, they are combining them into one class, in person.
