So, I am deciding on whether or not to apply to the St. Vincents nursing program.
I know I will have to test out of A&P and Micro as I have already taken all of them. I lookd online and could only find old posts about the testing process.
I noticed that St. Vincents started offering Review classes for each subject. I was wondering if anyone has taken then- and then passed the exam. I'm assuming the review classes are helpful- I was just wondering if people found it easier to just take the class.

Everyone I know who's taken that comp test for A&P has failed. Some had JUST had A&P at another school so the info was still "fresh" per se. I doubt a refresher class would have helped as they had just taken the classes..how much fresher could it get
(and many had A's in the CC A&P)
I'm pretty much resigned to the fact that I'll be taking my AP's at St. V's.

Three women in my NUR124 class took the comp test and passed the test. So, it is worth looking into.

I am at St.V's and from what I have heard from just about everyone (staff/students) is that pretty much no one passes the comp tests. I am sure that it is possible to pass just highly unlikely. I would try taking the test ASAP and just plan on re-taking the courses in the fall if you don't pass... but I would hurry up, you don't want to let too much time go by if you're planning on attending in the fall, as a&p classes tend to fill up pretty quickly and there is a process you have to go to if you have not yet applied to the school. Good luck!
