    Thanks Twilight Saturn...hopefully I will get a TEAS test date soon! Is there a requirement on how long the essay has to be? I think I have about a 3.3 in pre -reqs so i hope I can still get in!

    Hi guys! Twilight is right the test at orientation is nothing you can study for it just tells you what your strengths are. As for starting the program they have really changed the order of classes. I think they started this new order of the program with the January 10 cohort. For us, health assessment (NSG 211) was our first class and that was one hell of a roller coaster ride! TOUGH class. I think you guys start off with nursing theory or something like that and I don't imagine it being difficult at all. My cohort doesn't take nursing theory till almost the end of the program. (Doesn't really make sense why nursing theory would be at the end does it?) Anyhoo - Just try to relax and enjoy the next couple months of having a life.

    Omg I haven't received my packet yet. But good thing for this forum.. I didn't know the irientaion fee was that much! Eeeek!

    Tutubalu: When I took the essay the requirement was a maximum of 1 pages. I am not sure if they changed it though.

    Hiphippo: Yeah, I know the orientation fee is a lot, but that’s the price we pay for getting our degrees faster at a private college! I know people that are starting before me at other colleges and I am going to finish a year or more before them. It will be worth it!!

    does anyone know where to get cheap health insurance that covers the requirements (emergency visits and hiv preventative)??

    Hey Hiphippo,

    I was just wondering what your pre-req GPA , TEAS score and general GPA was? Im assuming you already heard if you got into the program, I think I read a post earlier that you were waiting to hear. I turned in my application a couple of weeks ago for the October 2010 cohort so I am just waiting now I guess!

    Hello tutubalu,

    I did get but I wasn't accepted the first time. My prereq gpa 3.0 I don't know what myceeg gpa is. I retook the teas and got an 87. I haven't asked yet what my essay score was. It took like a month or month and a half to hear from them after u take ur teas n essay. Good luck!

    Hi all,
    New to the the board. I'm waiting to see if I got in to July 2010 cohort. Are all of the theory classes in the evening? I'm trying to keep my day job so I don't have to take out rediculous amounts of loans. I know, I will be very, very tired

    Hi Expharmagirl,

    I'm in the same boat as you, I'm waiting to hear about the October 2010 cohort. I received an email about the application being in the review process and I am waiting on a TEAS test date and essay date. How far along are you?

    Hi tutubalu! I have taken the TEAS/Essay, just waiting for that acceptance for July 2010! It takes a long time for everything. I know people that didn't get notified of TEAS dates until right before the last 2 dates, so start reviewing anyway. We were told we would hear of our acceptance status the last week of Feb or first week of March, which makes us ineligible to reapply for the October 2010 cohort if we don't get in for July, we would have to wait until the next one. My grades/TEAS were pretty high, I don't see why I won't get in, but still, that sucks! They have 1 person doing EVERYTHING there. That's why it is taking so long! I hope you hear something soon!

    January and July cohorts are typically "night" and April and October are typically "day". This only applies to theory and can always change... My pediatric theory currently is from 12-5 for this rotation even though typically in other classes it has been 9-2. Clinicals can be whenever and wherever so you really gotta be flexible. Hope that helps, good luck getting in!
