    @cha12m

    prereq-3.76 (I had all A's except two B's in anatomy and physiology)
    overall gpa-3.65

    NLN Composite 145

    I applied to the MEPN program for Fall 2011 because I already have my bachelor's but I was wait listed.

    Cha12m, Did you apply to Spring 2012 or are you applying for upcoming semesters?

    Also, does anyone know if it is possible to work while attending UHM? If so, what are the normal hours of those students? I currently work at a doctor's office M-F.

    I had similar prereq and overall gpa as you, except my NLN wasn't so high :/
    I applied for Spring 2012 but didn't get in. I know it's my NLN scores that messed up my chances...
    I'm trying to study for the NLN so i can retake it, but the Science and Verbal section is killing me. I studied the science portion by reading/taking the tests from the red/orange book, but to me it's like that didn't help...Idk what i can do to study for those. There's so many chemistry and physics -.-

    Wow that's better than how I did ...I need someone to help me study for the Science and Verbal section. I got the same score for you on the math section, but verbal (61), science (57). I won't be able to retake the NLN until next year, so I'll have to apply with the same stats for Fall 2012...It seems like the science kills me even though I read/took the tests from the red/orange book.

    2cha12m I will be applying to both UHM and KCC for fall 2012. You can take the NLN at KCC. I took my NLN at KCC in july and took my nln again today at UH (no 6 months waiting period). You don't have to wait 6mos. to register. Call KCC and register for it. Brian Akiyama, the admission specialist, said UHM doesn't care about 6 months gap.

    Hey gocards, I'm pretty sure we're not going to be able to work a M-F kind of job. I looked at the list of classes and it looks like its Monday-Thursday with a 8:30-11:30 class and a 1-5:30 class. It varies but that looks like our schedule for the most part. I talked to a few of the nurses at my job and they said resigning is the best option especially if you have kids and I do, but for me not working is going to be difficult on my family, financially I mean. Well hopefully all of our questions get answered at the orientation... I know I've got a bunch of questions to ask. Stress already and it's only the beginning.
