    Yes, I've mailed in all of the forms and paperwork, except for the one with the shots. I have two more of the hep shots to take. That one's not due until the summer I think...because the series takes six months to complete. I'm in the evening division. I live on the Westbank and hope that I can do clinicals at University or Charity.

    I really want to go to Charity School of Nursing, right now I am taking pre-req's in Baton Rouge. My overall average is a 3.4, I plan on taking the PAX very soon. Is there any good study materials for it. Is it hard to get into Charity, I am hoping to get in either for Spring or Fall 2006. Please help and thank you in advance for advice.

    It all depends on when you took your PAX test. The cutoff date for getting your acceptance letter in Dec was the PAX test givin the first part of June. So everyone after that will hear something by June or July of 2005. I have heard that they are still considering for the Fall 05 class, so you may still be able to start this year. Otherwise, it will be Jan 06 before you can enter. As for the Hep B Vacc, you may need to get that redone, as it only offers protection for a bit over 10 yrs. You may want to call you doc and ask, but I think Charity is going to want to make sure you have a fresh dose. Im not sure though. Hope this helps!!

    Hi! As far as good study materials for PAX, they do offer a book you can buy but in all honesty, it didnt help. You can go to a bookstore and look at some of those "Nursing Entrace Exams" books to get a feel for whats on the test, but no matter how you study, its never what you expect. For math, KNOW FRACTIONS!! That was all my math portion was! And know physics well too, thats on the science part alot.

    As for you doing your prereqs in BR, let me just tell you that first preference does go to those students doing prereqs at Delgado. It is very competitive to get in, and that is one of the things that helps most. The most important things they look at are your GPA of prereqs, total GPA, # of prereqs completed, and PAX scores. I have a 3.8 GPA and made a 128 on Pax and made it in just fine, but I did almost all of my prereqs here at Delgado (Campus in Covington) and some at Southeastern.

    Well I right now taking English 102, Psyc-LifeSpan, A&P II, Sociology. The only classes they require that I haven't taken yet are a fine arts and humanities elective. I do plan on transferring to Delgado either this summer or fall of this year. I wonder if this will help or do they go off the # of pre-req courses taken at Delgado. I have already taken A&P I, General Psyc, Psyc of Adjustment, English 101, Microbiology, Algebra. So it not be a lot of courses that I will be required to take. Do they allocate a certain # of students who can be accepted from other universities? Thank you for the advice.

    I second this statement. Everyone's experience is different and what someone perceives as hard, you may perceive as not so hard (and vice versa).

    48- Im sorry I dont know more.. I was just told that they look more highly on those students who have taken prereqs at Delgado..

    For those in Charity now, I have a question. I read on another post that nurses cant have acrylic nails. Did they make you get rid of yours when starting classes? I havent heard anything about this, but I really hope not!!

    Please let me know if this was mentioned during your orientation/first week of class.

    THANKS!
