    Thank you
    They do the scores a little differently than RN. Let me see if I can find it and il post it for you k. But off the top of my head: TABE test scores, GPA, and work experience. TABE is worth up to 10.0, GPA is worth up to 10.0, and work experience (1.0 is maximum, .25 pts for each full year up to 4 years) is just extra credit. I had 10.0 for TABE, 9.75 for GPA and 1.0 for work. TABE + GPA divided by 2 and then add in work experience. So my score was 10.88. If you want an application just email the school. They are very good at emailing you back

    Hi everyone!

    I applied for the summer term with 217.96 points, so I'm just waiting for the official news from FSCJ. Although I'm pretty confident, I don't want to start getting things until I know for sure! I heard that the packets come earlier than the 8 week timeline that we've been told so I'm just going to keep checking my mail! Fingers crossed for big white envelopes =)

    Thank you a lot,
    How was the TABE?
    I thought the TABE was okay and I did very well on it. It's very similar to the TEAS. I took it over a year ago. And I think it's free to take? Now the PSB-NAT for RN, I did not so well on. It wasn't the questions, it was the time limit. All the questions I answered...I got right. Lol. I just kinda froze while taking that test. I was cool beans with the TABE? grr. I'm taking the PSB-NAT again in late march and I'm going to show that turd who's the boss! Haha ;0)

    hahaha

    I am studying the Teas book, and I am planning to retake the NAT in march too, but you are applying with a score over 200 for RN? Right? If that the case, you should be fine. When you got accepted for LPN, you gave me a second plan, I should take the TABE and I might get accepted for LPN. I know LPN is a long way for me because I want a BS in nursing.

    I wish that was my score I applied with 189. I won't be able to add micro points till the spring semester since they changed the dates so it was meant to be I guess with the LPN. My long term goal is to be an instructor...MSN/Clinical ed...teaching CNA, LPN and RN. I only teach health and safety now, but I love it. So learning the LPN training I think will be good for me. It's been fun getting ALL my stuff together...material wise for the program! Im sure the RN materials will be crazy too! Lol. Not looking forward to the goofy outfits tho. Lol. I do hope they're stylish But id go for it Rayanita! its not working backwards, just a little slower



    Also, anyone else who got accepted to LPN, I've created a group on Facebook. It's private so you'll have to message me about it. We can discuss more topics than on here, like teachers names, hospitals and stuff. And it will only allow us to see each others profile pic and names. We won't actually be friends...at least until we work together. Hehe.

    Hang in there guys! I know you probably don't want to hear this, but embrace the wait! Enjoy this last bit of time you have left! Once you get your acceptance letters (yes, they are big, white packets), all hell will break loose! And I mean that in a good way! The acceptance letter has directions of what you need to do by a certain deadline (about 3-4 weeks after the date of your acceptance) and you will find yourself running around like a crazy person trying to get it all done. We all thought waiting was the hard part too until we had to get a billion things done AFTER we got accepted! And if you plan on getting Worksource, the headache of trying to get the scholarship will begin! But it's all so exciting and worthwhile (and pricey)! Letters will probably come out when you least expect them to!
