Thought I would start a thread to see how many people were applying to Ivy Tech's Fall 2012 nursing programs. I will be applying to the Fort Wayne campus. Looking to see if they are any others out there who might be joining... Read More

    I know, eventually I'll get one, but I now have to wait the whole holiday weekend before I find out. The wait was bad, but seeing everyone else getting letters seems to make it 100 times worse.

    Maybe I should stop reading the boards until I get mine. lol

    I'm right there with you.... Bloomington and Sellersburg... What are they waiting on? This probably means they have a pool of 700 applicants, and they had 150 score a 95 or above on the TEAS... and it's just taking FOREVER to sort through all the applicants... I'm worrying myself into a frenzy. This long weekend is going to seriously BLOW!!!! and YES, I'm in a bad mood. I can hear Advil PM calling my name, if I want to get any sleep these next few nights... and I'm usually a patient person, I really am...(But congratulations, lilboop, anyway)...

    THanks for the info. It didn't even cross my mind about having to take the NCLEC-PN and then the NCLEX-RN. I am horrible at testing, ugh the test anxiety almost kills me. I've been doing well through my prereqs( 4.0gpa), but I froze during the TEASV, which will probably be why I don't get into ASN. I got a 76;( I felt the science portion was brutal.
    I'll try not to stress about this yet. I should be happy that I made it into the LPN program.
    Yes, test anxiety is not fun... and I heard the TEAS V was much harder than IV, which is the one I took. You should be happy you made it in LPN, that's a coveted spot and you had to work hard to get there!

    I know how hard it is to wait and it's horrible that the campuses haven't sent out stuff yet, but hang in there. There is MUCH more to provoke anxiety once you get in to the program, so start learning/using some of those stress-relief techniques now. Try to enjoy your weekend, because nothing is going to happen til Tuesday. So, you can either be p.o.'d and stressed these next couple of days or you can take some time for yourself because once you get in, there won't be a whole lot of that available!! Good luck, and I hope your letters come asap!

    Thanks for the pep talk. It's not so much the waiting I find that's stressful for me, although that in itself is certainly nerveracking.. it's the lack of coordination between the differing campuses that bumfuzzles me. I realize the number of applicants varies greatly from campus to campus. A pool of 400 possible candidates would take much longer to evaluate than a pool of 75. HOWEVER, with that being a given, I fail to see the reasoning of sending out letters from all the campuses over such a wide span of time, especially knowing that people apply to more than one campus. It is difficult to know if you are going to turn down one campus if you have not received an acceptance letter from your first choice. It seems to me the best option would be to simply tell all campuses to have the letters ready to send out on ______ date. Pick May 30th, if that is what it takes to get them finished, and then we would all not need to go through this longterm anxiety. This is not the first instance of lack of coordination that puzzles me. Some offices provided an official manila business envelope to turn the application in, with the envelopes having a place for the applicant's name and program applying for. Also included was a stamped envelope for the student to address for the department to mail the acceptance/rejection letter in. Other campuses just had a mesh mailbasket, (left unattended, I might add) to place your application in. Did placing my application into an unattended basket make me a bit nervous? Yes, I'm sorry to say that it did. In one office, the staff gladly helped me to doublecheck I had every piece I needed... another office, the staff said, "No way am I going to help you. If you can't read directions yourself, then how on earth are you going to make a good nurse?" and although that was just a wee bit snotty,, she made a valid point.
    I suppose I expect more professionalism and coordination between the campuses, and protocol that all follow.
    Anyway, I'm keeping busy to pass the time. there is always endless cattle work around here that needs to be done, tomorrow being no different.
