- Sep 20, '08 by Homemaker4nowThanks MIC for the info. I know Terry campus has a ruberic because I spoke with an advisor. She told me that I have a good chance in getting in because I have all A's(A&P I & II, clinical math, Micro). I have to take the NLN soon. However, I am applying to other RN programs as well. I would like to get into Terry because of the evening program. It works out because I have a family.
- Sep 21, '08 by MIC!Homemaker4now, just make sure you focus on the NLN. But, I'm sure you'll make the clinical list. Because I don't know anybody who has all "A" grades in MicroBiology, Clinical Math, A&P I, and A&P II. I'm sure there are some that do have those same grades, but not many. You are very smart by applying to other programs at the same time. This will leave you with options. My wife and I are doing the evening clinical program also. It was a natural fit for both of our schedules. Even though it takes longer to complete clinicals if you opt for the evening program.
And BTW what is a ruberic??
- Sep 21, '08 by Homemaker4nowWhat I was told that the higher the score on the ruberic like a 16 is good. For example, if you get an A in A&P I you get a 4, B get a 3, C you get a 2. You get this score for your A&P's & Applied Clinical Mathematics. However, for English Comp.& Critical Reading & Thinking you get 1 point. The NLN also gets a points value from 2-6 depending on your composite.The higher the score the better. I met a Delaware student applying to a program over here NJ at GCC is accepting apps. for the LPN to RN. She told me it's too hard to get into DelTech. I just pray I get in because I really need the evening program.
- Sep 23, '08 by MIC!Getting into the evening clinical program is not as hard as getting into the day clinical program. Because most people prefer to go to school during the day. While people who have full time jobs, family, and otherwise difficult schedules choose evening clinical program. And as you already know some of the student body either live with their parents or have no responsibilities during the day.
- Jan 11, '09 by lillypad274I'm at Stanton Campus DTCC. It wasn't too hard so far, but they say it gets a LOT harder after 141 and 142.
- Oct 15, '12 by Knights2014If you are starting from the beginning, definitely go to DTCC to do your pre-requisites. They are cheaper and easier to score A's. But after that, you should apply to a BSN program, just because you will be more prestigious. Most hospitals are trying to get rid of the Associate degree nurses, so if you are looking for a secure spot, I highly recommend applying to a BSN program, let it be Jefferson, Neumann, etc. Good luck to all
