    hi bella2b...
    I was told cna doesnt have a weight in acceptance.... I also have as well. But yet, the proctor collected our registry, so I'm not quite sure...

    Hi, everyone. Being a CNA doesn't give you "extra points" at all. The reason they collect your registry is because, if you are a CNA, then you don't have to take NURS 140 during the first semester, which is really nice. I'm a fourth semester JJC nursing student and wish you all the best of luck in the program.

    Hi Guys I also took the test on Sept 22nd. That test was brutal. I did 3 practice test and i always heard they were harder then the real thing.......nope the real one was so much harder, esp, science. I studied so hard and I had so many earth questions and I dislike those questions.
    I talked to Luna and she said last time the lowest score THAT GOT IN was 68%or 69% i dont remember which, but the girl had a 4.0 and she wasnt sure about her reading. That gave me hope. She also said with only 300 application this time that really helps to.

    I thought I did great on my test until the results came in. I got a 72% overall and the reading was 79% with a 4.0 in the prereqs and i finished all that they look at in the program.

    I did about the same just a tad better on the teas then the practice ones. I felt they helped but I studied as much as I possibly could and relooked over everything.
    Also for any of us that do get in Luna said if you took NURS 100 {I LOVED THAT CLASS} study that math stuff and it will help in the first semester of nursing. Porportions and dosages.If you have the math confidence book it helps.
    GOOD LUCK EVERYONE I AM GOING NUTTS WAITING
    I am hoping to get in nights SPRING 2013

    hi hopefull....



    I have a question: when we applied they ask if you prefer day nights or either.... depending on what you chose, is that what they automatically give you? How does that work? some say lottery .....?

    Tortiz....agreed. the waiting is making me nuts. ((sigh))

    I was told before whatever u accept is usually what u get but in some cases if what u select is full they will call you and give the option of going to what is available instead of what you selected, that way you font loose out by just picking the wrong time.

    Hi strongfaith:

    You usually get what you pick...but you are more likely to get days only because there are more day spots. If you pick either then depending on how many people asked for nights, you may not get it and get put into days instead. I'm not exactly sure how they choose who gets nights, but, for instance, if you say you can "only" do nights then you will probably get nights or nothing at all. If you say "either" and there are too many requests for nights, you will probably get days. Make sense? lol, hope so!! I put "either" to increase my chances of getting any spot at all. I figured I would work out the logistics once I got accepted, but I realize many people don't have that option! This whole program is somewhat unorganized and in many cases, it is what it is...no options are given.

    I asked for days. I hope it get it! I absolutely can't do nights. I'm pretty much a single mom and my kids are in school all day. They need a parent.

    Thank you for that information. It is so nice discussing this with other students in the same boat as I am!!! I was thinking the same thing when I registered the application, I clicked "either" as well. I decided I will make it work. I too am a single mother, PurplePRN... god bless you for pushing through, I know it is difficult!!! For that matter God bless everyone going through this turmoil. It is so challenging pushing for & dedicating your time and life for something you may not get accepted into. However, I believe whether you think you will or think you wont, it will happen. So with that said, has anyone gotten any idea when we will hear the official word? I understood three weeks give or take. I don't know what the heck to do with my nervous energy LOL....

    WOW--thanks for all of the info!! You and I scored pretty similar and I am sooo nervous. I agree, I completed one ATI book practice test, 3 ATI online practice tests. The last one I scored very well on. I also read how the practice tests are much harder than the real thing, but I agree with you; no way were they easier, the actual test was much harder for me too!

    My preference is the evening program but open to days if that is all they have for me; that is how bad I want in!

    Does anyone happen to know what timeframe is for days and what timeframe for nights? or does it vary? thanks! I am surprised there is not any information on this on the jjc website.

    No, I haven't heard from JJC directly but I did see someone post what their schedule was like at JJC. It is a lottery though so the times vary based on the day/evening. I believe we will be in school 3-4 days a week the first semester and it depends if you are a CNA or not (take NURS 140 or not).

    I just saw my TEAS scores posted in our Test Summary section....I wonder where they are in the deciding process
