Ivy Tech - Fall 2012

  1. 0 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 me.

    Please feel free to post where you are applying, and then once those letter get mailed out at the end of May, let us know if you got in!

    Hi all! I am applying to the Anderson / Muncie campus for the LPN peogram only. I didn't have time to take math 136 yet. I am hoping to transition to RN right after. Now the waiting game begins!

    hello all.....isn't the wait fun? lol

    i have applied for ASN at Sellersburg, Bloomington and Columbus in that order. i applied with all A's and an 83.3 on the Teas. I was shooting for an 87% but the science section was really tough! i really hope i make it in. i turn 40 this summer and i've dreamed of being a nurse for a really long time.....i spent too many years afraid to give up a good job and pursue my dream, so i guess it's now or never.

    goodluck to all who have applied.....i know why there is a 2 month wait, but waiting is not my strongpoint!

    I am super nervous about my application to the Lafayette Ivy Tech Campus. It is the only place that I am applying. I am going for the ASN program. I have all A's in the prerequisites and then an 80 on my TEAS giving me a 170/190 points. I'm hopeful but I am starting to get stressed. May 31st cannot come soon enough.

    I think I finally figured out why they wait until May 30th to mail letters instead of right after the end of Spring semester.

    Spring semester ended Sunday (5/6/12), the current we are in (5/7 thru 5/11) is a week off for faculty. The following week (5/14-5/18) is known as non-instructional week. This is probably when they are finally getting the remaining scores together and they also have to deal with students who want to register for summer semster at the last minute. PLUS they have to prep for their summer classes. Then you have the first week of classes (5/21-5/25), which we all know is crazy as all get out.

    The following week, which is the second week of classes, is a bit more laid back and they can finally get the letters out.

    It could be a stretch or me just trying to rationalize the long wait! LOL Just a thought I had.

    Mama_Cashew, I think you are giving them WAY to much credit. I think they just make us wait so long so that some of us will die from the wait, thus making the pool that much smaller. I have applied to Bloomington and Sellersburg, LBP and ASN. I'm trying my best to keep myself busy. We farm so there is always something to fill my day, but it doesn't matter; I count the days remaining till May 31st every day. I hate to be a downer, but looking at last year's "acceptance letter" posts, some regions didn't get their letters out by May 31st. For some regions, the ASN letters went out during the 1st week of June. Could the wait get any more agonizing? Oh, well... hang in there folks, because there doesn't seem to be much else we can do.

    Good luck, all!

    I wish I would have made a copy of my application packet. The more I think about it the more I think I forgot something. I just wish those letters would get here! I know they send the ASN letters around May 31st...but when do they send the PN letters? PN is the only one I applied to with a total score of 180.2.

    With a score of 180.2, I would say you are pretty much a shoe in for the PN program, you probably would have gotten into the RN program too (if you wanted).

    Based on the talk I had with the Dean of Nursing on my campus, they accepted people last semester into the ASN program that only had a total of 115 pts. They had people with B's and C's. I know each semester is different, but I think on some campuses the pools have gotten smaller because people have heard how hard it is to get in and don't bother to apply.

    I know for some campuses like Indy, the pools are larger than ever because of some study or something that is going on there, and EVERYONE wants to be part of it. I just want to be a RN!
