Anyone gone through the ASN program here? I am currently looking into applying. I am finishing up my pre-req's this semester at IUPUI and plan on taking the TEAS soon. I was just curious as to how hard it is to get accepted. How many times did you have to apply? What were your grades and scores like (if you don't mind me asking)? Do you know how many people applied to the program? I know how many they accept but just wondering what the ratio is like.

Quote from Ceteris Paribus
Keep in mind that with Ivy Tech they have MULTIPLE locations. If you are willing and able to commute you can increase your odds of being accepted by applying to multiple programs. For example someone living in Central Indiana could apply to Ivy Tech's ASN programs in Richmond, Columbus, Muncie, Kokomo, Bloomington and of course Indianapolis all the while staying within about 60 to 75 minutes drive time each way. Also, if you don't make the ASN program you COULD also apply to the LPN programs (which only take 1 year) and then immediately upon graduation apply into the LPN to ASN transition program (with an excellent chance of being accepted since you would only be competing against other transition applicants). I have only recently started the Indianapolis ASN program, but can tell you that the attitude of the faculty is outstanding. Their dedication makes you WANT to work harder as a student.
I do think that it would be helpful if the various Ivy Tech campuses PUBLISHED their the average number of applicants, average GPA's and TEAS scores of each accepted class. This would give prospective students valuable information in deciding if they had a realistic chance of being accepted or if maybe their time would be better spent pursuing other options (or possibly somewhere in between). More information is better for EVERYONE and I was unable to get this data even when I asked during one of the school's information sessions (which you are required to attend before you can apply.).
You don't have to attend the nursing info session until before you apply to the actual nursing program right? So like, while I'm doing pre-reqs I could attend one? Oh-and if you're going to apply to more than one Ivy Tech campus for the Nursing program, do you have to fill out your FAFSA accordingly? Like put down every Ivy Tech campus??
