    hey you, thanks for the reply, i got the acceptance letter about a week ago. let me know how you're doing-and don't let this school change you're profession. i know any school like to weed people out, so i am not that excited to be 1 of the 95 people. i feel like i didn't really earn to be in the program due to the fact i got 20 indistrict points. my grades are high but my confidence is low because of not getting in last year. i have to regroup and get back into gear because i work, and plan on quitting when i start this program.
    if you did not receive a letter by last week that means you didn't get in, i called last week and they sent the letters out may 4th, and said they will be sending rejection letters out about a week after may 4th.
    i will definitely keep you updated on the program and what to expect and i hope you get in, and if not now, then next year, make sure you keep you're grades up in communication 101, psych 101&, a&p 1&2 micro, eng 101 & 102 and humanities if you take it. dr. nelson is awesome for a&p.
    keep me updated! let me know if you have anymore questions

    I totally agree, a friend called me like May 4th or 5th and was like-I got my acceptance letter certified mail, and I was freaking out. then the next day I got certified mail too. I am still considering other schools like IUN, or even IVY Tech, I went to UIC nursing session and they were saying that If you went to their school, *most likely the (TRANSFER) students will be picked* that made me not want to go there because it's like....ok....for most community colleges they consider their own students, and I come here and you guys dont?lol I might as well just get my ADN at my community college then go to UIC, atleast if I fail the BSN-i'll have something to fall back on-ya know?lol Let know me know what schools you're considering girlie. Keep me updated.

    Sorry so late, I do not think they offered the Hesi workshop this year, bummer, because there was a guy that did it last year and he only focused on the math portion of the Hesi. He focused on Portion problems, and Percentage problems, If you do take the Hesi be sure to know you're measurements, I didn't know a thing about measurements, and I didn't do well on the math, but I was 1 point away from getting 5points added to my score.
    Key is to have a high Hesi score.

    I thought you had to have your bsn to get into trinity hospital, and I heard st. James don't hire RNs Definitely makes me nervous about job hunting after graduating
