I am a current LVN applying to Kaplan san diego lvn- rn to start may 2013. I graduated from Kaplan LVN program in February and currently work and volunteer at a local hospital. At first I was very ANTI private school, but I have working at my prereqs since 2007, and after so many years of school and not being accepted into a CC I am happy to go to Kaplan. I really enjoyed the LVN program and feel that I am a very proficient nurse.
ANyways, Im looking for anyone else who is also applying and wants some encouragement! We are all in this together!!!

Have you heard anything yet??? It have you taken your tests? And if so how did they go?
Yes, I have all the prerequisites done i will have to take anatomy through kaplan since its been over 5 years but all my other classes transfer in. So after I'm done with kaplan I can either go to kaplan university or another school for bsn. I am a working mom and kaplan just fits my lifestyle a lot better. Lets all stay in contact!
Haven't heard anything yet. My advisor said we should know by the end of Feb. I took both of my tests. They went well for me. Because I got good scores the advisor told me to apply instead of doing their CNA class, which was nice! I don't remember what was in the wonderlic all that well except that it was a lot of logical reasoning type stuff. If I could give any tips for you, smile 30, I would suggest that for the wonderlic you skip any questions that you don't think you'll figure out quickly and then go back if you have time left. The KTP was longer and more tiring than I expected! Remember that you can use a calculator on the computer so don't worry about long division or anything! haha.
That's great almost all of your prereqs are done! I might have everything done except I took Anatomy at cc but no physio. They said it might transfer in and I could skip A+P 1. It would save money but I don't know, it sounds kind of iffy! I would be worried about trying to transfer anatomy and HALF of physio to a bsn! haha I think I'd almost feel silly asking! Then I am also hoping a "contemporary social problems" class will count so I can skip sociology. I was looking into WGU for when we're done at Kaplan, it looks pretty awesome except that you automatically graduate with a 3.0.
Hey by the way, my advisor did say that all of the alternate students from January cohort got in so there was no one waiting around for May! which is good news for us
