- Apr 7, '12 by gtqueen371If you interviewed, you've come a long way. The nursing program gets approximately 900 applicants per semester. They interview about 150-160 people, and they accept around 80 for traditional and 40 for accelerated. If you do not get in, I recommend trying again! Showing your determination goes a long way. Also, make an appointment with F. She is very open and honest and will let you know what you need to work on. In addition, use the interview resources in the career center. They know how the interview is set up, will ask you questions similar to the ones in the nursing program interview, and they will tape you so that you can see what you did wrong or what you can improve upon. Just thought I'd interject and let you all know that you should all be proud of yourselves and keep pushing forward, regardless of what the letter says.
- Apr 8, '12 by brianaeliseHey qtqueen! Thank you so much for your encouraging words!
How are you liking the nursing program so far?
- Apr 8, '12 by gtqueen371I love the nursing program. It is strenuous at times, but well worth it. It will be even better on 12/12/12 when I graduate! P.S. If you want to get a head start, pre-nursing students can participate in the Student Nurses Association. We have speakers/events once a month.
- Apr 8, '12 by hellenvnThanks so much for your nice words and advice. My gpa is 3.65, Teas is 85 %, my interview go well but one thing is that i do not have experience in healthcare. I am praying that I will get in......Gtqueen371 do you see any nursing students have the same situation like me and get in????
- Apr 9, '12 by KSUBioGradThank you for your encouragement qtqueen371! Are you in the traditional or accelerated program?
- Apr 9, '12 by gtqueen371hellenvn,
Honestly, I can't say one way or another if you'll get in. I can say that if you got an interview, then you were in the top 150-160 out of around 900 that applied. Your GPA and TEAS matter more before the interview because that is how they select people for interviews. Once you get to the interview, its outcome will generally weigh more at the end since everyone that gets an interview had the grades to get one. If your interview went well, then I wouldn't worry. It is NOT necessary to have healthcare experience. There are many students that do not have this type of experience. Some of the accelerated students are second-career students, and their first career had nothing to do with healthcare. I know it is hard, but sit back and try to enjoy the time you have right now. The letter will come soon, and once you are in the program, it is a whirlwind. If I could go back and change something, I'd have taken it easy and relaxed with the time I had left. Because, I'd give anything to have a moment to relax now. Haha!
I am in the accelerated program.
- Apr 9, '12 by MrsCheddarHey all -
Just to clarifty - (for the traditional program) - they asked 100 people to interview this year and 80 will be accepted. Also, I know for sure that at least 3 people didn't show up for their interview (?!?!?!), so hopefully that increases our odds. I got my numbers/info straight from the nursing advisors.
I keep hoping that something will pop up on OwlExpress while we wait for the letters. If you're pre-nursing, there's a check-off box for "Admission to Nursing Program". All I want is a little check
- Apr 9, '12 by brianaeliseQtqueen, thank you for taking time out of your day to be so helpful to us!
MrsCheddar, Is that on degreeworks? I just hope the letter comes as soon as possible! lol
- Apr 9, '12 by KSUBioGradgtqueen, yes thank you for all the info! I am applying to the accelerated program. I was thinking about trying to work part time while I'm in school. Do you think this is even do-able?
