    I am applying for FALL 2012 admission as well. Graduated in December. Taking my Nclex next month. After that, I plan on taking the 4 challenge exams and science portion of the TEAS since I got like a 47% lol

    I have a few questions hopefully someone can help me answer.

    1)To apply for admission, is it competitive based? If I have all preqs done and all are above C, do I still need to worry I won't get in? What about after passing the 4 challenge exams, is it possible still to not get admitted? Do I need to look for back ups?

    2)Did anyone have their transcripts evaluated before submitting your application for university admission? I called the other day and was told by the nursing dept that they do not evaluate transcripts. I will have to apply and they will tell me whether or not I'm in.

    3)How many semesters into the program, will I be able to sit for my nclex-rn exam?

    4)How long will it take me to get that bsn if I go in with about all the gen eds finished except for a few to meet that 124hr minimum for graduation?

    These are all the questions I can think of for right now. Thanks in advance for all you guys' help!!!

    You are dealing with a university. Before anything can be done you must be in the system. That means you must apply to the university and get a student ID. Once that is done you exist and you can have your transcripts sent to ISU. The university evaluates your transcripts and will send you a DARS--a report of the classes you must take to graduate.

What about after passing the 4 challenge exams, is it possible still to not get admitted? Do I need to look for back ups? I don't believe it is competitive based but, quite honestly, I don't know because I never had to worry about comptetition for grades. I believe they are taking eveyrone but now that more people are considering the program, it may start being impacted and may be competitive based.

    2)Did anyone have their transcripts evaluated before submitting your application for university admission? I called the other day and was told by the nursing dept that they do not evaluate transcripts. I will have to apply and they will tell me whether or not I'm in.You have to be accepted to the university first. If you decide to take the challenge tests, they require a university student ID before you can pay for the classes.

    3)How many semesters into the program, will I be able to sit for my nclex-rn exam? Go to the ISU website and look at the classes, the prerequisites, and the gen courses. That will give you an idea.

    4)How long will it take me to get that bsn if I go in with about all the gen eds finished except for a few to meet that 124hr minimum for graduation? You will never have all your gen courses finished, unless you have a prior bachelors degree, because the university will require specific university-required GED courses to graduate.

    Residents from many states can take the LPN-BS track of the baccalaureate program at ISU - see map of states that recognize or accept the program - http://www.indstate.edu/lpn-bs/image...isu-lpn-bs.gif

    Tootie88 Have you decided which hospitals you will use for your clinicals? I live in Va but I'm willing to go to Md if I have to. I will also be starting in the fall.

    2brn09,

    ISU have a site where you can look in certain areas where they have established contracts with clinical sites by former students. I found a mental health clinic here in Athens that has a contract.

    Smashley10,

    keep me posted on how nursing care of adults CSM goes. I'm trying to study for it with the help of college network. So what are you using to study for that exam? Ive passed the mental health CSM which I heard was the easiest and I barely passed.

    Good Evening to all. I am very new to the site and still learning how this works but I was excited to see the variety of comments left about ISU. I just recently started my journey with ISU for my LPN to BSN. I was a little nervous but am very excited and anxious to see how this is going to play out. For those of you who are very Familiar with the program any feed back would be appreciated. I'm just curious to know what the process is/was for you once completed your Gen-eds. I know you have to apply for ISU but were you wait listed at all or was the transition very smooth details please.
