    RN2B12,

    I think you should call Charity and very politely speak with the nursing admissions advisor and ask what she recommends that you do to improve your score to get in. For instance, is it just a matter of improving your TEAS score? Was it your GPA? Are you close to being on a waitlist or should you just apply for the LPN program? Good luck. I know you are frustrated for not getting in for the Fall. I hope things start looking better. If you don't mind me asking, was was your TEAS score and GPA? You can IM me if you want.

    My overall GPA is 3.51, and my CSN GPA is 3.41. I got 0 points b/c I dropped two courses in 2007 (Fine Arts and a Micro re-take b/c I got a C and was trying to get a higher grade). I got an 83 on the TEAS, but what really hurt me was that my A&P 2 is from 2004, so I had to retake it. Had my A&P 2 not been too old, I would have had more than enough points to be accepted. I ended up with a profile score of 50 (I only got 5 points in the completed coursework section b/c of the A&P being too old). I was enrolled in the A&P 2 lecture at the time, but I could not get into a lab on the northshore. Just being enrolled in the lab, no matter what grade I received, would have given me the extra 5 points that I needed to be accepted. I was in the first group on the wait list, but the admissions coordinator said that they were not taking anyone off of the wait list this time. It's frustrating, but it really is my fault (it took me a little while to realize that) b/c my score should not have come down to 5 points making or breaking me. I have decided to apply to SELU's BSN program b/c it's based solely on pre-requisite GPA (and I now have a 3.8). Thank you for your concern, it's appreciated, good luck in your program

    RN2812,

    Your GPA is very good and your TEAS score is pretty good too. I am very surprised that you did not get in. I would not give up. Keep periodically calling the school about the waitlist. What about getting in for the spring? Sometime they tell students that they didn't get in for the fall, but they can take them in the spring. Usually that is a smaller class so the competition isn't as crazy as the fall. However, depending on your age and how flexible that you are, a BSN is better than an ADN in todays competitive market place. On the other hand, you can always do an ADN program and then do a bridge RN to BSN program. I only have 1 semester left at Charity, then I'm going to get a job. Then I will start the LSU RN to BSN program which is only 28 hours after any pre-reqs. Also, the BSN programs are going to be very stressful, more than the ADN programs because students take several classes at once. Good luck and keep us updated.

    Su,
    I think that the BSN at SELU may be the better choice for me. The last time I looked into SELU they held all of their clinicals in Baton Rouge, but now there are clinical sections in Hammond, Covington, and Slidell. It will be nice to be able to do my clinicals around the corner from my house instead of having to drive across the lake. I planned on returning to school to complete my BSN as soon as I graduated from the ADN program, but I would love to be able to work as an RN while doing that. I do believe that everything happens for a reason, but it's just hard to accept that sometimes; however, if they called me tomorrow and said that I could start in August I would be a very happy girl
