Hello, I am due to start the LPN-BSN program at Indiana State University in the fall of 2012 and decided to start a thread for fellow students who may be starting around the same time so that we can connect and support each... Read More

    I am taking my CSMs now for the spring 2013 admissions. I see a lot of you are applying for the fall. Is anyone else here doing it for the spring 2013? I am also going to post youtube videos. Good luck to all of you

    Hey,

    I am in NoVa. I just applied to ISU's LPN-BSN program and a bit nervous as well as excited! I just finished my online application yesterday and am in the waiting process to see if I have be accepted to the University (Phase 1).

    I'm a bit concerned because I still have not taken the CLEP my algebra course, yet ISU told me to go ahead and apply??

    Anyone have any thing like this happen to them?

    Also, just did my TEAs for a different program I applied too. I got the following

    Individual 63.3

    Reading 61
    Math 76
    Science 54
    English 66

    Soooo annoyed the reading and the individual did not meet the benchmark for ISU too. (70 in reading and 65 in individual) Will I have to retake just the reading or all four parts? Ugh! Any feedback is welcomed! Thanks Good luck to you all!

    Did you buy the ATi book and study it? That often helps.

    I had to retake the Science only portion because I didnt meet the benchmark, (got a 50 and passing is a 52). I'm unsure if you will have to take only the reading portion, or the whole thing since the individual score was low as well.I would contact Franci Rubin, she handles all the TEAS stuff.

    Nah, I used the ATI book and the online ATI practice exams. I thought they where very helpful.

    I also used an egg timer when I did the practice exams from the book, that helped with time time part.

    LadyinScrubs-I'm starting to freak out about clinical placement in California. I'm starting to feel that this was a bad decision I made. Will any of the California students get any clinical sites at all? If they dont, will Ca BON reject the ISU online program in the bear future? Who can I contact bc I feel an anxiety attack coming on reading that Ca clinical placement is difficult.

    You have mentioned valid concerns, and you are not alone. Imagine being in the program and having the same concerns. So far, I don't think anyone has discussed their concerns with the CA BON. ISU has failed to address concerns.

    In fact, there was one very aggressive poster, who appears to be an ISU employee, who attacked my posts--although my posts have always been based on fact. I value information I provide and know the definition of lible and slander. Anything I post about ISU is based on solid fact and other evidence--not rumor or hearsay.

    There is another poster--who also attacked me about the information I provided--yet this person has never taken any ISU classes, has never applied to the program, and has never taken any ISU nursing classes, yet posts information about the program. As I stated before, I believe this person is an employee of TCN and/or ISU. If the person is not a student at ISU, why take the time to post?. Why hide? If the posters are employeed by TCN and/or ISU, why not be honest to those who are reading their posts?
