Hey everyone, I just took the NLN exam this past Friday and I'm really nervous whether my scores are good enough. My composite score is a 136, composite percentile: DI-97, AD-94, ALL-95. I haven't prepared at all for the NLN... Read More

    Thanks But I lived in HI for my whole life, so UH is most convenient. & they changed the pre-reqs beginning Fall 2010, so they no longer consider anything other than GPA and NLN scores. I spoke with an advisor and was told that recommendations and experience will not be looked at...I actually work at Queen's Hospital and used to work for the vice chancellor at UHM, thinking those could "buff up" my application, unfortunately it wont. So I'm really stressing it right now, especially because my pre-req GPA will probably not be a 4.0

    The only things that changed were more flexibility in which courses you could use as your pre-reqs (besides A&P and Micro) and the NLN now being the only accepted entrance exam. UHM has never looked at work experiences or recommendations. The admission score has always been based on three things: pre-req GPA, cumulative GPA, & NLN/NET/etc. test score. (with a few extra points for HI residency, SAT verbal scores, etc..)

    it's a point based system, so if you're lacking in one category but do well in the others you'll be fine. i barely met the minimum cumulative gpa (2.5) but still got in b/c my pre-req grades and NLN were excellent.

    I have about a 3.01 cum. GPA, I have taken all of my classes in California and now in Alaska where I am living. I REALLY want to move back to Hawaii, I have not taken the NLN test. I know that there is an orientation the beginning of April. I have about 70 credits done, I have been a CNA for about 5 years (obviously that does not help me though). It seems like the school is tough. I want to get my BSN, and heard awful things about HPU. Do you have any recommendations as to improving my chances of getting into UHM? Do you know how long it will take to get an acceptance letter back? I got accepted into a school in Anchorage, Alaska for Spring of 2011, I would need to know before then.

    Thanks in advance!

    what is your pre-requisite gpa like?

    www.nursing.hawaii.edu

    the nursing app and stuff is on there. you may have to do a little research into which of your courses transfer over to UHM.

    Fall 2010 apps are due March 1st so if you haven't taken the NLN yet, you're not eligible. If your applying for Spring 2011, deadline is Oct 1st IIRC and you should hear back early to mid November.

    I think the deadline for fall 2010 is feb 1st not march 1st. I am 99% sure. I wonder how many applicants they have for fall 2010...

    ya sorry you're right. UHM used to be a month after KCC but now apps for both are due Feb 1st and Sep 1st.
