So I know all about the Trimester versus Basic programs and that its a lottery system of who gets in, but I'm unclear on how one goes about doing it...
Is everyone automatically a candidate for the trimester program, or is it only for those who request to be candidates for the lottery for the trimester program?
I just want to consider my options, I might have quite a bit of GE left to do and I might like to do the basic option instead. Is it just luck which one I get into, or would I have the option of not being a candidate for the trimester program?
Thanks for the help
I didn't know that you would hear back from them so soon. The website says that they send notifications the 4th week of November. Thats why I was worried about the CSU deadline, because by the time I knew if i was in or not, if i was not, it'd be past the deadline to reapply to the CSU. Thanks
And the only thing about enrolling in a class is that I live in northern california and I wouldn't move down there unless I knew I was accepted into the nursing program.
Anyways, we'll see how it goes
Good Luck! Did you decide to attend CSULB? Or did you get accepted somewhere else?
Okay I have a question I'm not sure any of you will be able to answer..
So, I figured if i do micro and stats over the summer, I'll be able to apply for Spring 2010 instead of Fall. My question is, if I do not get accepted not the nursing program, I will want to apply again for Fall, but the application deadline for fall admission to the CSU is November 30th, and I'm not sure if I'll have gotten my letter of denial or acceptance for Spring semester to know whether or not to apply again.
So, I'm assuming I'll get accepted into the university either way, but if I don't get accepted to the NS the first time around, by the time I find out I have not been accepted, it will be to late to apply to the university.
So what do I do if this happens. If the first time I apply, and I do get into the CSU and not the NS, will it cross over to the Fall semester? Because it'll be to late to apply again, once i've heard from the nursing program.
Sorry if I repeated myself a lot, I was trying to word it in a way that would make sense, so I don tknow if you got it.
Thanks for the help though.
Also, I saw in another thread that Long Beach Memorial pays their new grad nurses about 28.50. This was about a year ago, so it may have changed some, but its probably in the same ballpark. Its not that great, but its also a REALLY good hospital, everyone seems to love it.
Since I am contracted with LBMMC, I get a 'stipend' for each semester to cover books/tuition/etc.. It is $3500 a semster, WITH taxes taken out. So yeah. But I do owe them two years of my time when I graduate so that is the other part.
Can anyone who got accepted to CSULB tell me what your resume looked like when you were accepted? GPA, Teas Scores, Prereq Scores, etc? I'm planning on applying to the program for Fall 2010 and I will still have Physiology in progress when I apply (but everything else completed). Does it make a huge difference if you have a course in progress? I know they count it as a C. I'm just wondering what my chances are of getting in, i know its really competetive, but then again they let in 90 students per semester which is pretty good for a CSU.
Thanks for the help!!
I am in the program right now, finishing my last semester. I love the program here. There are awesome clinical and lecture teachers, with a few duds, but that's always expected.
The school partners with Long Beach Memorial and other hospitals in the area. If you want, you can sign a contract with Long Beach Memorial so that they pay your tuition/books and you can work for them two years after. It is what I did and I am very happy with my decision, as working there for two years right after graduation will be a good transition.
Let me know if you want any specifics!
I just got accepted to the nursing program at Cal State Univ. Long Beach (Spring 09). I hope i get into the trimester program after the first semester anyway
I start later january...i really worked hard for it...n i feel like the happiest person in the world...
Hi. I have been accepted to nursing school and just received a notice that I will have to take the TEAS Exam in five weeks. It's been a long time since I took chemistry and algebra, so I definately need a review. I just ordered the Secrets of the TEAS exam study guide, but now I'm wondering if this is a good review/study book or if it is mostly about test taking strategies. Does anyone know? Thanks a lot.
i went on that test preview site also and they also give you a book to order from http://www.mo-media.com/teas/ its really not all that. its not an actually book but like a pamplet that you can easily copy at kinkos or something. the only reason why i choose this over ati's is a little cheaper and they offer you a guarantee like if you dont get the score you want they will reimburse you. i didnt know i was going to just get a 200 page pamplet thing. on the upside its pretty neat it really goes over alot of the science and chemistry part as i hear ati does not. also the math and english part they give you all the equations and commonly mis-spelled words on the test. so in that aspect a neat think to have but i wanted a book really. your not suppose to do this but i can scan a couple of pages out of it and send it to you:spin: i was thinking of giving it to the nursing school lol as its sooooo easy to just copy the whole thing lol and have someone else use it. well i hope this helps ty:spin::spin:
eat something for breakfast, even if you feel too nervous to eat! read the questions carefully.... the science portion is not going to be what you expect, i had one anatomy question...i think it had to do with the pancreas. the rest were life science type questions...that i had in 7th & 8th grade...the math part was fairly easy, but a little tricky. if you have this : like 7:4...it is division...i forgot & thought it was ratio...there are a couple of math questions that are time consuming, you read the paragraph...joe is going to sew a shirt, he needs three yards of fabric, 6 buttons blah blah blah....then there is a list of all the things he needs with the prices, you have to calculate it all up
1 yard of fabric...$2.50...joes needs 3 yards...
pkg. of 2 buttons...$1.75...joe needs 6 buttons......that sort of thing.
there will be some tricky spelling words, they all look right. brush up on the periodic table. i had a question on zinc...how many electrons, protons...
good luck, take your time & you will do great!
so i saw this study guide on this below link
has anybody used it or know someone who used it?
is it worth it?
thanks alot guyz....im battling whether i should buy this one or the TEAS official thingy at atitesting.com
if that is the case then you should do an introductory biology course..(leaning more toward the physiology) (if your college offers it)
or just any plain bio
and then do A&P...but medical terminology wont do you anything
its just straight memorization of all the terms and the meanings...
Thank you for the quick responses! On my next trip to the library I'll browse through the medical terminology books and see if just reading the books will help me in lieu of taking the full out course. I don't have a science background at all (except for the one Bio course I took my freshman yr of undergrad...10 yrs ago :chuckle) so I'm pretty much starting this whole adventure from "scratch."
i just randomly saw this post...damn u shud be ecstatic...
i agree with u....gamba just take a book n read thru it
dont stress it...
It is unnecessary. You could always just buy a med term book at the bookstore.
