Applying for SWIC Nursing Program Fall 2013

  1. Hello! I applied this year after not getting accepted last year. I wanted to see who all has applied, so we can support each other. I took my DET test today. I got 6 points which bring me up to 21 points! I'm so excited. I was on the alternate list last year with 16 points, so I'm Pretty confidant this year. Has anyone else taken their test? All that is left now is to wait for our letters.

    Good luck tomorrow! I was really nervous also. The test was 2 hours and 45 minutes long. I ended up answering all the questions with 40 to spare. I found the math was easier. So I went back to double check my answers. I was able to get all 4 points in math well above the minimum requirement. That section wasn't as hard as I thought.

    Good luck again. Take your time and just breath. Hope you do well!

    Hello chepronie! I don't think you need to worry. If I had scored a 4 instead of a 6, my point total would have been 19. I wasn't worried about it there. I think anything 18 and above you are getting in. With a 17 I would be a little worried. I can't remember when I got my letter last year. Class started beginning of June, I think. I believe it was late April or early may when I received my letter. Hopefully we will all get good news. I'm so happy you both responded! It will be nice to know someone on the first day, if we get in. Good luck guys!

    A little update. I got an email saying that they have received all the necessary documents. And my file is now labeled as "complete". And they would notify me when the evaluation process is done. Ya!
