    I know it is really much easier for a resident vs a non-resident to get in, but...what I really would like to know is do you have any news of any non-residents getting into the program?
    I have all my pre-reqs completed, as well as all my co-reqs (except pharm 203) and I have a GPA of 3.92. I am taking the NLN in January,
    and I really want someone to tell me I am not wasting my time!!!
    Thanks for listening!

    I believe what matters most is your grades and the nursing entrance test. (NET) With that GPA and if you take the NET at University of Hawaii at Manoa School of Nursing, since you only have pharm left which you could do in a summer sesstion at Kapiolani community college, you're better off going to UH Manoa and getting your bachelors for only 1 more year.

    manoa accepts non-residents. kcc does not. that's the bottom line.

    btw UHM also accepts NLN scores so if you're considering UHM don't worry about having to take a second different exam. you also don't need to request the NLN exam scores be fowarded to UHM (another $50). UHM will make a copy of your personal score sheet if you bring it in. KCC on the other hand, will ONLY accept NLN scores DIRECT from the NLN. so yea. make sure you designate KCC as the school when you take it.

    Thank you everyone for your replies...I have looked over the UH Manoa BSN program, and I believe I have a pretty good shot at getting it.
    I will be applying for Fall '09 , which leaves me just enough time to finish the program before my husband will PCS in Fall 2012...If I don't get in on the first try, I will not have enough time to complete the program.
    Wish me luck, and again, thanks for all of your replies, and suggestions.

    Any ideas on how competitive it is to get into to Manoa? A good NET score & a good GPA, anything else seem to factor into the application process? I will go talk with the nursing advisor sometime this week.

    pre-reqs:
    http://www.nursing.hawaii.edu/prereq...n-nursing.html

    admission is primarily based on pre-req gpa and test scores. cumulative gpa is also considered (kcc doesn't look at the cumulative). you pretty much need all A's and a few B's with pretty decent scores.

    a couple important things to note is the 6credit limit on retakes and that you must have completed all but your final science courses when you apply.

    Fall Applicants: All prerequisites excluding PHRM 203 must be completed prior to admission into the program. At the time of application, you are allowed to be enrolled in your FINAL science course, science lab, and non-science course.
    Spring Applicants: all prerequisites must be completed prior to admission into the program. At the time of application, you are allowed to be enrolled in your FINAL science course, science lab, and non-science course.
    any courses you'll be taking spring09 do not count as completed since you'll be turning in your app by march 1. i'm not sure which pre-reqs you still need so you might need to find an accelerated winter program if there's more course you need COMPLETED by 3/1/09. i'm guessing you still need your chem? have you done all your labs (micro/A&P)?

    Actually I have looked over thh BSN program and I do have all the pre-reqs completed:
    I have taken Chem 151/152, Mirco 130/140, ZOOL 141 & L /ZOOL 142 & L, as well as the ENG, MA & the FG's...I have completed those will all A's
    I have also already met all the graduation requirements for the general education at Manoa (except for thsoe that will be incorporated into the nursing curriculum.)
    So I am feeling a little better now, knowing that hopefully, my time hasn't been wasted.
    I guess if I know we were going to stay here, I should have applied for Sp '09

    Thanks again, and wish me some luck. ANy more advice or suggestions would be appreciated!

    oh that's awesome then. just go meet with a nursing adviser to double check if there's anything else you need. you could always retake courses for a higher grade but i guess since you're applying for fall09 only, the retake grades wouldnt' count when you apply.

    did you already pay for the NLN? the NET is a lot cheaper ($25 IIRC). gotta check on test date availability though.
