Waubonsee Community College

  1. Anybody attending WCC or going to be applying there? I'm on track to apply for the Spring nursing program. First I have to take the PAX on July 6 and keep my fingers crossed that I pass!

    Who is your instructor, I finished with an A just last semester and would be more than happy to help! PAX RN is fairly easy know your chemistry from anatomy, physics formulas and biology there is not really too much micro on the test maybe one or two questions however each test is different! Know your math basic algebra and geometry and you will be fine! I received a composite score of 155 and scored 99%.

    If you get a C in micro they will let you in, the requirements are a C or better.

    The learning center can set students up with an online tutoring program called Plato to help folks study for the PAX-RN. Not sure how helpful it is since I didn't take it, but I don't think it costs anything to give it a shot.

    Thanks a lot . They did hook me up with a Plato log in. The math so far is easy. I'm worried about physics.

    In taking it out of state and I hope it transfers. My grade has came up to a low "B", its almost over and I hope to keep my grade where it is it higher .

    As long as you pass your PAX with them you will get it. If you score low, you might not get in the first semester you try, but if you reapply the next, they will make you a priority. They told me if people scored low that it would not take more then two semesters. I did not end up applying there, but I did take the PAX after studying for only 3 days for it and I got a really decent score. It's pretty much exactly to the book.

    I am so stressed about taking the PAX RN and i don't even have to take it for awhile...
    I am learning disabled in math and Barley passed Algebra/geometry ... and I never went farther than that in Math.
    I'm really concerned and debating changing my major.. I'm already and LPN but when i became an LPN these stupid tests were not necessary.....
    So irritated

    Has anyone done the ASN Transfer from Waubobsee to Aurora University?
  14. by   MADE2B_A_NURSE
    Once I transferred my courses to WCC, they told me I have to retake A&P 1 since there wasn't a cadaver used. Other than that I will have all of the requirements plus a "B: in Micro. I graduate May 2014 in the Nursing transfer program but I am thinking of applying to both WCC and AU. Has anyone had any experience with the application process? Which is more challenging the TEAS-V or the PAX-RN?
