Kapiolani CC ADN selection - page 8

Hi All, I am curious as to what a competitive applicant has for an ATI TEAS score, GPA, prereqs. I understand the minimum TEAS was 78, but it has been temporarily lowered to 65. Obviously, the... Read More

    Lol. Almost half way through September. I saw someone on here say they received something around mid-October. So one more month. Sooo long!

    Yeah, I saw that too. It was for the Spring 2012 cohort. I'm rooting for a late September surprise!

    Sorry for the late response, but I didn't get an alert that you had responded. I would say around Sep 11th, I got another letter saying that the nursing department had received everything that was required, so that is a good sign. I, too, hope the results come out sooner rather than later.

    Do you have a Bachelors, yet? If so, have you looked into the MEPN program at UHM?

    Yes I have a bachelors but looking at the MEPN its very intense and fast. I am not currently in health care so I kinda want to take it slower to learn and practice. It would be nice to pop out of there in two years with a Masters but I was also looking at the investment in time with a young one its not something I think would be best for me now.

    Second thing that turned me off of the MEPN is that the NP is going to a Doctor of Nursing requirement before I would graduate basically putting me on the hook to go another two years more even if the cohort got grandfathered which I havent heard happening. So we'll see.

    I hadn't heard that NP was going to doctor of nursing- good thing to know.
    I find it a little odd that out of 3 programs I am considering (1. KCC ADN 2. UH BSN and 3. UH MEPN) the one with the most requirements for me is the ADN (they do not accept accept any of my upper level writing classes or language classes), followed by the BSN, and the easiest prereqs are for the MEPN.

    WOW! this tread really picked up! I love reading through everything.. im not the only one going crazy waiting for the letters to arrive. Any day now.. kinda.. no close enough! Rockinitfreshawaii- did you apply to UH too? And do you have experience in the medical field?

    That would be nice if they published the results early.

    Lol I have been reading here and saw that your status changes on star so I have been checking that regularly. As for late sept. Looks like the girl was wrong! It's already ending of sept and nada and yesterday I was told mid oct but it could be delayed cuz they will be going through accreditation so blah!!!! I give up asking lol. I'm just gonna TRY and wait patiently. As soon as oct comes my mailman will get to know me. Hahaha

    Roz26: I did apply to UH as well. I'm not too confident about the UH school of nursing application because of my GPA. My pre-req GPA is pretty good but my cumulative GPA isn't the greatest. My entrance exam scores are just average as well. I took a nurse assistant/aide class but didn't get my state certification. I don't think UH takes medical experience into consideration, which is too bad.

    Ellers: Awww I was really hoping for a September surprise haha. More waiting it is then...

    I could not agree more. It is a little silly how they keep all the students waiting in the dark for months. After all letting us in on the application process will not change anything other then all the hype! I also wish KCC and UH required acceptance letters, what a difference that would make, but that require a lot more 'work' on their end!

    Rockinitfreshawaii: fingers crossed for ya! Having the CNA cert. should help a lot with KCC. When does UH release acceptance letters?
