    Hello all! I've been reading this thread since page one. I'm a Veteran and was geared towards Everest for a number of reasons. I just found out that WCU in Ontario and North Hollywood have waiting lists for the veteran affairs yellow ribbon program. So there goes being able to get in. I will be at the info session this Tuesday to get the ball rolling here. I'm hoping that the use of my post 9/11 Gi bill and grades from my LVN program (graduated with honors) along with community service will help out during the selection process. I know it may seem stupid, but I so tempted to drop off my resume with the admissions rep. Btw, I'm a new LVN that just passed NCLEX 2weeks ago. Anyone trying to get in to Everest for the January class; feel free to respond.

    Andrew, I am also a veteran but unlike you, I am about to finish the rn program in 5 months. I am receiving the yellow ribbon program but not for every quarter because I already had all of my pre-reqs done at chaffey so there are some quarters that I am not full time. Dropping off your resume, just save your time and paper cause it wont help. its all about how well you do on the hesi, then how well you do in your interview, and so on. don't be discourage by how many people are in the info session, cause there will be a lot. and don't ask about the lvn bridge, cause in reality, there is no such thing. just take it for what its worth and when the faculty tell you that its going to take up all of your time for the next 2 years, believe them. I hope this answered some of your questions but if you have more just ask away.

    Thanks for the info. I have decided to not go with Everest due to the school not being ACEN ( formerly NLN) accredited. Meaning, those classes will have to be taken again if I go for a BSN at another school. I wish you all the best with the rest of the program though. Now, if I can only find a LVN job that will be super flexible with school.

    lol, they are going to be here in 3 weeks so that the school does receive the ACEN. But even if the school doesn't receive the ACEN the credits do transfer to a few schools for your BSN. As a matter of fact we just talked with grand canyon university last Wednesday about transferring. but oh well best of luck to what ever you decide to do.

    Does GCU allow you to have your clinicals and theory side by side for each particular subject as required by the board of Nursing with the state? If so, that's great! Good luck with Everest and I hope you guys do receive the ACEN accreditation!!!!

    Earlier I posted I was not going to go to the info session because they are not accredited. I looked at the ACEN website, and it shows that the school is a candidate for accreditation. The program is under review from august 2011 to august 2013. I had to go through the ACEN meeting notes to find this, as it's not listed on the website in a graph or chart like other schools. Being a candidate does not mean the school will become accredited. But, I figure what can a info session hurt? And, what if they do get the accreditation this year? All good reasons to sit down and listen to what they offer.

    As far as entrance is concerned, is the HESI a cumulative score or do I have to score a certain percent on each tested section? I know that west coast asks for a cumulative HESI for their BSN. I had a chance to download the Everest student guide from 2012-13; and it states 70percent in each section that is tested for HESI. Which has me wondering why; as the school is by far ACEN accredited right now. Or perhaps they increased the percentages while they are under ACEN review. If you know, please fill me in.

    Anyhow, thank you for letting me know about the ACEN and Everest! I'll be there this Tuesday to ask questions and what not.

    The hesi shows how you did in each subject. I don't know exactly how they graded it, I just went in and did the best on every section. Once you finish the test, they go over your results with you right there and then. This test actually drops the applicant pool by almost 3/4. The only bad part is it takes so long to find out if you get in, almost 6 months.

    Wow! 6 months sure is a long time to be waiting. Must be nerve racking.

    I just posted a looong reply to answer questions. don't feel like retyping it, but you can PM me for more details. As an Everest grad, I can tell you the ins and outs of the place and can give you some tips

    Hey, Jmira.... Thanks for the PM offer. I'm currently at work, but will shoot you off a pm tomorrow. I have read the thread since page one; so most of my questions were already answered. I'm just curious as to wether or not the program received the ACEN (formerly NLN) nod for accreditation. And if you feel your education prepped you for NCLEX. Gonna hit ya up tomorrow to ask clinical site questions. Thanks again!
