Current (2012) Wait List for Butler Community College

  1. 0
    Hi all, I can only find old posts on what the current wait list time is, but can I have some current feedback on how long you waited to get into the nursing program at either Butler Community College in El Dorado, Wichita State, or Pratt Comm College?

    When you applied for the nursing programs, what was your average wait time until you got accepted into that program?

    I am moving to Wichita area soon, but now I live in S. California and the wait lists are 2-3 years!! It's insane. I do not want to wait that long.

    Application period for Butler's nursing program is ongoing for the Fall (2012) but deadline is coming soon. I'm not sure when you were planning to try and attend; your post doesn't say. They use a point based system to determine acceptance into the program. Grades on A&P, Psychology, and English count for points, as well as TEAS scores. The reading section on TEAS actually counts double. There is also a possible 5 points for CNA certification. They total the points and pick the top 56. You could be on a wait list but that would only last while acceptance letters are awaiting replies. If you are not accepted on the first try you let them know if you want to transfer your application for the Spring.

    I lived in SoCal last year and started my prereqs at El Camino. It's so difficult to get anything done in SoCal! I moved back to KS last summer and the whole process is sooo much easier here!

    I currently have an application submitted for the Fall (fingers crossed). I'd be happy to answer any other questions you may have about Butler's program. I was a student at Butler before -graduated in another field- and am back here for nursing. Their nursing program is top-notch and has a great reputation. They also have a new articulation agreement with KU for an easy transition (ADN-BSN) is that interests you.

    Letters for the Fall (2012) should be going out during the first week of June from what I hear.

    Hello!

    Have you taken the TEAS V ? If so, how was it? I only study the official TEST V by ATI. I wonder if that's enough for the preparation?

    I'm thinking to transfer to Butler CC as well. Do you know what's the average TEAS score to get into the program now ?

    Thank you in advance for your prompt reply!

    Not sure about the wait time, I just took the TEAS V today at the Pratt/Wichita Test Center, applying for Fall '12. I know the deadline is May 20. In answer to the question about the TEAS, I used the ATI study guide, took the online practice tests, and also used McGraw-Hill's 5 Practice TEAS Tests. I don't think my hands stopped shaking the whole time I was taking the test. I scored an 89.3%. I know Butler's program is very competitive, and I am hoping this score with my grades in the prereq's (B in A&P, A's Comp I, Gen Psych), the points I get from the reading section, and the points from healthcare experience are all enough to get in. (***fingers crossed***)

    Those of you who have gotten accepted into the nursing program, what were your grades on the prereqs and score on TEAS? I'm just wondering if it's absolutely necessary to get A's or if a B will lower your chances since it's so competitive. Same with the TEAS. Wondering what the average score is of students who get into the program.

    Still working on my pre-reqs. Have to wait for the May '13 deadline to apply for Fall '13 program.

    I have a B in Eng 101 and A in Eng 102 (even though I know they wont count that into accepting me), but I'm going to retake it for an A just to make sure I'm doing everything I can to get in.

    I just graduated from WSU Nursing School in December 2012. I applied in spring of 2010, if I remember correctly, and interviewed in late summer. I think I received a letter of acceptance in October, or something to that effect. I have to say, I really loved the program!!! Great faculty, friendly classmates and a solid base of knowledge in nursing! I can't remember my TEAS score, I wanna say 87... not sure about that but I earned A's in A and P, Micro, Chem, and had a previous degree in Spanish from KSU. I had horrible grades from my previous degree but had a 5-year gap in school that spared me from having a lower score. You definitely get extra points for A's in the sciences so study up! I heard they don't do interviews anymore just essays. I hope that helps! Stay positive and focused, it's totally worth it!!! I love being an RN!!!

    For Fall 2012 the minimum score taken was 159, and for Spring 2013 the minimum score was 154. A&P max 20 pts. Eng. Comp I, Gen. Psych max 12 pts. each. The overall score on TEAS, and your raw reading score will determine where you stand/would have stood on getting accepted. If you have CNA, Medical Assistant, EMS, etc....Those count as 5 points towards the 190 pt. max.

    Example. I received an A in A&P, an A in Gen Psych and Comp I, so that gave me 44 pts. (20+12+12). I scored 76 on Teas and 35 on the raw reading portion. (20+12+12+76+35=155) With these scores I wouldn't have gotten into the Fall class, but would have gotten into the Spring class. The 5 pts. from CNA which put me at 160, essentially guaranteed me acceptance. But keep in mind it's very competitive as Butler has the most sought after seats for RN's in the Wichita area, so the better your scores the better your chances. If 56 applicants apply and all are about 165-170 (which is possible from time to time), you'd need to good on TEAS to be considered, as all A's in your prereqs wouldn't guarantee you a seat! Hope this helps!
