Kaplan San Diego ADN Jan 2010 - Page 4Register Today!
- Jan 7, '10 by Emilynn09I scored an 81%, I have a BS in Business and have everything done BUT the Science courses, and I got in. No medical experience. So, you never know. My counselor told me that I needed to have a 95% to be competitive so I thought I wasn't going to get in, and I did. I was VERY surprised when I was selected.
- Jan 7, '10 by tinker_bel06Wow..Your giving me great hope already... I made it to the 90% percentile so I hope that's what you mean by 95%. I was looking at the averages of teas scores and they seem to be around 80%. Well I will go to the school on Monday to get more information. I still have to do the calculations test. Also I have to see if my counselor is still there. I called her but she never returned my message.
- Jan 7, '10 by Emilynn09My original counselor told me I needed to score a 95% on my TEAS, she also told me a bunch of other wrong information. I requested another counselor only to find out I had been misinformed about a lot of things. I am not sure what happened but the original counselor I had no longer is employed there *shrug* I know they also go by GPA, I had a 3.6 in college, and 4.0 in all the Pre-Reqs I had completed for the program; they take into consideration a lot of factors when making decisions. The DON supposedly selects the class all on her own plus 10 alternates.
- Jan 8, '10 by tinker_bel06Oh wow, well thanks for the information. I shall see monday.
- Jan 8, '10 by liberty_bellHi guys. I don't know if this is an option or not for those of you wanting to get into the RN at Kaplan. If you don't you could always take the LVN program in Vista and then your 2nd year you can bridge to Kaplan in San Diego. Just a thoght. The PN program you DO NOT need any medical experince. You only take the HESI, if you pass your in. Easy peasy!
I'm actually already an LVN. I took mine at Grossmont health occupation center a few years ago for free. It depends on your income, but I think the most it will cost you is less than $3,000 now. It used to be $2000. Its ROP. I thought it was a great program. You get what you put into it. And there is no waitlist. You just have score high on the entrance exam.
- Jan 9, '10 by Emilynn09Tinker, if you are already an LVN then you would apply for the Bridge program.
- Yes, that's what I am doing. I have a friend that got in last year for bridge program but she didn't have any classes done and got in. I am just worried about them not taking me because I have too much done. So anyway I am still going to find out more info on Monday.
- Jan 9, '10 by Emilynn09Quote from tinker_bel06I don't think that your having classes done has anything to do with getting in. If you are worried about it, turn in your transfer courses after you are accepted. You have until the day before class starts to transfer courses.Yes, that's what I am doing. I have a friend that got in last year for bridge program but she didn't have any classes done and got in. I am just worried about them not taking me because I have too much done. So anyway I am still going to find out more info on Monday.
- O.....thanks for the tip..
