Has anyone had any luck with applying at National University for their nursing program? I applied back in Oct 06 and have been waiting to hear from them. They are supposed to notify in 3 months. I... Read More

    Hi everyone!
    I posted a thread about National San Diego about a couple of days ago, and found this one... so I decided to just post questions about National on here. (I'd love to read all the posts but there's 117 pages!!! LOL!!)

    Well, I'm really interested in the program, and I looked on the website but it's just so vague.

    - What is the GPA requirement? I saw the required prerequisites but no GPA requirement.
    - And how hard is it to get in?
    - Also, what is the tuition like? I saw that it's $200 for theory and $400 for clinical courses... but I'm sure there's more to be added!
    - If you're in the program, how do you like it so far? Should I even consider National??

    I am applying to the BSN program (generic). Thank you for your help and support!

    I just sent you an email through here. You need to respond back to me so I can send you a real email with an attachment. I can't attach anything through allnurses.

    Hi everyone!!

    I've been reading through this thread a little everyday... it's such a long one!! LOL! But super informative and I'm glad there is support out there such as this forum.

    I wanted to inquire about the biomed stats needed for National. Is that specific to National? I already took a stats class, specifically called Probability and Statistics. I'm wondering if that can be transferred over for National's Biomed Stats class?

    I saw on here that they're not accepting Elementary Probability and Statistics? I'm afraid that they won't take my class and that I'll have to retake it. And geez... that is not a fun class to take a second time! =)

    Also, I have already taken my TEAS somewhere else. Does National require that you take the TEAS with them? I see that there's a proctored essay? Is that during the same time you take your TEAS? When I took my TEAS, there wasn't an essay. Or is the essay given separate from the TEAS?

    I will be joining the online forum next week, but wanted to hear what eveyrone here had to say. Thanks for your help and advice. And congrats to everyone who got in!

    I believe you have to take the NSG322 they offer (unless you were already enrolled as a student with National before Spetpmber 2009, in which case they will accept a general stats class). I've noticed a lot of the schools are moving toward requiring some kind of bio or med stats.

    I took it online with National and it wasn't super difficult. The only "issue" I had was the Thursday night online meetings, but the instructor was flexible on this and to be honest the meetings were super helpful for completing the homework.

    Also, I have already taken my TEAS somewhere else. Does National require that you take the TEAS with them? I see that there's a proctored essay? Is that during the same time you take your TEAS? When I took my TEAS, there wasn't an essay. Or is the essay given separate from the TEAS?
    They allow you to take the TEAS elsewhere, but ask that you re-take it with them as well. National does not charge you for your first TEAS. If you already took it elsewhere, (iirc) your higher score will be used for your application score. The proctored essay is one of National's admissions requirements and also becomes part of your application score. It's administered on the same day as the TEAS, but I think I remember them saying that you could make alternate arrangements if necessary.

    Hope that answers your questions!

    Agreed, you have to take the biomed stats unless you were a student w/NU before 9/09. As for TEAS, you can take it elsewhere, you just have to complete the essay at NU (at least that's how it was when I applied in Nov for the July 2010 cohort). You have to bring a copy of your score.

    ripplecal, I just took mine for the October cohort also! They said they would mail out the letters by the end of this month so we will see! How do you think you did? I am nervous!

    tutubalu, Um, I got a 85 on the Teas. I think the essay went well. We will see! I am really nervous too. How about you how are you feeling about it? Good luck!

    Hey Guys,
    I jut applied for the October cohort as well! The difference is that this was my second time applying I scored an 82% on the TEASE and had all A's and B+ in my sciences. I was devastated to say the least when I got my denial letter. Apparently I bombed the essay and getting low points on the essay really brings the total score down a lot. So here I am going through the nervousness once again! Good luck to you guys and hopefully we will all meet in October
