Kapiolani Community College - page 6

Hi, I am just trying to get some clarity on Kapiolani's RN program. I am a military spouse and am new to the island, so I called this college and was told that they do not take non-residents. ... Read More

    a request from me, to everyone who plans to write a post:

    would everyone please stop the yelling, the screaming! please stop insulting other people, stop calling them names, stop criticizing them, stop writing about how screwed up they are! please!

    can you say that you're angry, and ****** off, and frustrated...
    because you want respect, and consideration, help, support, opportunity, equality, etc.

    no matter who you are... can you say it without insults?

    mahalo!

    I am sorry to see this thread turn from a good source of information and encouragement to a sounding board of negative messages. Cm'on folks, let's stop the inflammatory comments and try to stay positive...

    Sending good thoughts,

    This thread gives us an outlet to relate some of our stresses and it is also a nice common ground to show/give support to others.

    #1 In regards to military. sigh.. Hawaii is limited in space just a Makoa said. Sorry. We are just an island. Really no comparison to North Carolina. Although, both sides made great points. Not long ago we had a nursing shortage and the vocational school ( KCC) gives priority to the needs of the community. Unlike UH that doesn't have too. This is why we have an lpn program again. Although, we are not in a nursing shortage today we may be tomorrow. The military folk can be very nice but feel so badly but are just "not" getting the whole community thing. It's not about the taxes folks, its about servicing the people and future people of Hawaii.

    #2 Has anyone recieved their letter ? I know it's only the 15th but if I don't get in for spring, I need to go to plan B very quickly. I thought I could just forget about it but I can't. sigh. This is the first time I have applied and it's nerveracking. Although, Lan Vo said I would get in. lol......

    #3 Wes said they are attempting to get them out earlier this year. Before November. Who knows. If you get your letter please state it.

    Good luck everyone !

    No letter yet. But my mail carrier has gotten to know me quite well these past few weeks. I too have to open up plan B soon. It'll be okay for me if I don't get in since I know that I didn't finish all the classes yet. But having a glimmer of hope still brings on the anxiety of waiting like everyone else.

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!

    Nothing yet for me either...it is hard to 'hurry up and wait.' I really hope we all get accepted! I'll let you guys know when I am notified (either way).

    Well I'm bummed, I didn't get in but I was expecting not to anyways. I still haven't completed all the classes, I am taking those 2 classes now this semester and should be able to get in for Fall 2010. I got alt listed, can anyone tell me your experiences from what you know about the alt list? Supposedly it's 10 additional students they keep on the side in case anyone decides to take other options--like UH if they get in.

    Anyone applied for both? How about you Lalalia?

    I'm a litte annoyed but they are making me attend that 5 hour orientation, get my immunizations, TB, uniform fittings and CPR class, just to stay on the alt list. And I didn't even get in~! I read on one of the threads that someone was chosen as an alt, went through everything and didn't get in. Oh well, hopefully anyways I am high on the list and will still get a shot at this upcoming semester.

    Congratulations to all who got in. And for those who didn't, don't give up!!! It's a lot of hard work but I know many of you can do it!

    sometimes people end having to withdraw very last minute. at that point, if the alternates aren't already up to date with their health clearance/cpr/etc. there's no way they can start and it'll be a wasted seat for the entire semester. so yea. it's a pita but just keep your fingers crossed. if nothing else, you'll have everything already out of the way for when you get accepted next semester =)

    hi all!

    new to the forums here. i just had a question for all of ya. i'm intending to apply to kcc's nursing program for fall '10. i have all pre-req and co-req courses completed except pharmacology. currently have a 3.7gpr and a 151 NLN score. Problem is i'm not doing so well in pharmacology, i really think i'll end up with a B or a C for the course. i really dislike how the course is structured! :<

    Anywho, based on what i read earlier on everyone's discussion, i wanted to ask if I should apply to the program before my pharm grade is posted on my transcript (since it'll drop my gpr to a 3.6 or worst case 3.5), or should i just wait to turn in my application after i get my pharm grade (regardless what it is) so that way I'll have all co-requisite courses completed despite having my gpr lowered some. what would seem to be better in terms of strengthening my application?

    thanks for all replies

    edit: if it makes any difference, i also have some health care work experience

    you don't have a choice. fall 09 grades will be posted long before they start reviewing fall '10 apps. the only way for them to not see the grade would be if you took it outside and left it off your app. of course then you wouldn't get the points for taking the co-req course either so it'd hurt you more.

    true.

    So just to clarify: even if i turned in my app say for example december 1st(w/o listing pharm on my app since the class isn't finished at that point), when they start reviewing apps, they will note and include my pharm grade despite the fact that the class wasn't completed prior to the day my app was submitted?

    Either way, you think it best to get the points for completing my last coreq course?

    They will review your transcript and include your points and see your grades even if you don't include it since they wait until after the semester and view the grades themselves. You still have a strong app. You should have applied for January 2010 admission, I think you would have gotten in. I have a 4.0, 141 NLN and I am missing 2 classes and I got alt listed. That means I came in next after the 40 they admitted. You're only missing one class and you have health care experience so that would have given you extra points.

    you know, i actually really wanted to apply to the program for spring of 2010, the only problem was i felt inadequately prepared to take the NLN prior to the application deadline. So I spent alot of free time preparing for the NLN, and I didn't wanna have to worry about having to take it again or anything. Thanks for the words of encouragement though....would be cool if we both get in for the FALL
