    I just got accepted into the program at Lawrenceburg, Indiana. I had all A's in my prerequisites and an 83 on the TEAS V which I opted to only take once. Total combined score was 173. I was number 4 out of 19 people accepted at the Lawrenceburg campus out of 30 applicants. Those are some statistics for you. The Lawrenceburg campus is only hard to get into due to the small number of students accepted (19) as opposed to the Madison campus which accepted 70. As for Ivy Tech's reputation as a nursing school, all you need to do is converse with those out in the field to learn that ASN's from Ivy Tech are just as competent as anywhere else as they are all nationally certified by the NCLEX. It is important to note that the health industry is shifting toward BSN's as LPN's are slowly ruled out (especially at magnet hospitals.) So, it is best to pursue a BSN after completing the ASN program and there are a lot of programs out there that make the transition possible. I hope this helps.

    I don't think Madison accepted 70 people into the nursing program. But as far as the original question, it's not that bad to get into the program. Lawrenceburg and Madison are smaller campuses and don't have as many applicants as your bigger campuses so I really think your chances are greater at a smaller campus. Get your a's and study study study for the teas and you will be okay. Good luck.
