I am a bit confused. On the St V website, on the Nursing admission requirements it says "An admission requirement for the nursing major is high school chemistry and biology or equivalent within the past five years with a grade of "C" or better."
I called and spoke with who I believe was the Director of Admissions. When I inquired about what the minimum level college bio and chem was needed he stated..basic chem and a human bio..and he added "they don't even have to have labs with them". Humm, really? Thats odd, all the other programs state that Bio w/Lab and Chem w/Lab are required..ok..if you say so
He also gave the deadline for applications for admission, I told him that I still needed to get my Bio & Chem done as they didn't fall within the 5 year or less requirement. He told me that I could still apply and I could do those classes while I was in the program. Now, for those who think I misheard him, I stated back to him exactly what he said to me and he replied "yes" I had also called a few days prior inquiring about something else and the woman in the admissions office who answered also said, be sure to apply by July 16 to be eligible for consideration for the Sept 2010 class that will be starting. I told her that the chances of me getting the Bio and Chem done by that date was impossible. She too stated, oh that doesn't matter, you can still apply and be accepted. You can do those classes while in the program. I even repeated, these are the two REQUIRED courses for admission, NOT classes that are taken the first yr of the program. She said she understood that and that it didn't matter, if i had completed both Chem and Bio, I could still apply and still be considered for admission.
Now, how does that make any sense? Both the "general admission" requirements for the college AND the RN program both specifically state that Bio and Chem are needed for application.
Sorry so long winded but..now to my question..has anyone applied to St V's who hadn't gotten their Chem and Bio done before applying?? I would love to apply but I can't see wasting the application fee, if once they see that them Chem and Bio aren't done, my app goes in the circular file.
