Has anyone else applied to the accelereated BSN program at IUSB? I heard that they are accepting 16 students this year (May start) and only 40 have applied thus far. Can anyone who has applied in the past (whether accepted or not) give info as to what your GPA was or what they ask in the interview? Anyone actually been through the program with any opinions on it?
Well in a way, you still allotted your spot to another, LPNs who are interested can still move up since its only the first semester. I have been worried about the things required as well. I mean, you know what a nurse does, but you don't see all the "nitty gritty" behind the scenes work. I know I personally won't be bothered but I can see it definitely being an adjustment period for me! Thanks for your input and I appreciate you being honest about your experiences. If I may ask, what campus were you at? I just got into Indy and it would be nice to speak with someone who was accepted there!
I just think they need to go out earlier because we have to respond to campuses by Oct 22nd. I will hope for tomorrow
You have a right to your opinion, as do I. With that being said, its my opinion that its very selfish to accept a limited seat in the program when you aren't sure its what you want. It'd be easier to swallow if you failed out!! I would think you could check into nursing job requirements before you wasted your and your instructors time. You come off as very arrogant but I hope you understand while I give you congrats on doing well, your "very high" score says nothing except you may have good study habits. It does not mean you are a quick on your feet, or have the skills to problem solve in a high stress situation. You may have EARNED your spot fair and square but regardless someone who may be a wonderful nurse isn't in the program. And that's what still ticks me off. Good luck in your future.
If I may ask..why did you drop out?? Was it different then what you thought it was going to be? Good luck with you future endeavors!
Just wondering if anyone else has heard any low applicant/low scores rumors for the muncie campus. While it seems doubtful to me, I'm trying to hold on to any hope I have! I get so ticked to hear of ivy tech nursing students dropping out early on. Its a slap in the face to those who don't get in but would make wonderful nurses!!
anyone still waiting to hear from south bend for lpn program? have they mailed out letters yet? last i heard they were mailing them out last week but no one i know has received them. hmmmmmmmmmmm.....
That is sooooo nice of the few of you that want to ridicule the people that got in to the ASN program in Columbus, which might I add are the same people that feel horrible for the people who didn't get accepted to the ASN, and are posting their scores so that anyone who wants to try to figure out the cutoff can if it helps ease the mind.
I AM one of those people who took ANP 101 and 102 over again to get my A's. I also have a full time job, and two sons that are in sports all year round and constant birthday parties and random other things that I need to take them to constantly. It's not like I just sit around and get B's in classes so that I can take them over again to get A's.
I will tell you what I am going to do for those of you that are wondering what "people like me" are going to do in the program when we can't re-take classes, I WILL ACE THEM!
Seriously, grow up and stop trying to blame the fact that ppl can re-take classes on the reason ya didn't get in. Kind of hard to be nice when I'm so excited to get my acceptance letter, just to get on the "Ivy Tech" topic and share, when all you see is negativity. Might want to think about that b4 you write nasty posts.
LPN letters aren't even out yet and that is just as good as RN.
So that brings me to the question, almost every post ends with "Good Luck", do u really mean that? I don't think so if this is how its gonna b.
What was your score? And does anyone know if they send rejection letters as well???
I'm in, I'm in, I'm in (at South Bend)!!!!!!
I'm so exstatic!!!!
hello everyone - and Congratulations to those that have recieved their letters!! I'm still waiting on the South bend campus letters... I was told they mailed them today - so maybe we'll get them tomorrow? friday?
Its stressing me out -- with all the waiting and the long walk to the mailbox every afternoon!!
OMG!!!! I received my letter today and I made it into the ASN program at Evansville!!!
p.s. I had a 207 w/o region pts
So when people refer to the Indy or Lawrence campus, does it mean it's the same campus??? I'm so confused about this part (being that I'm from the northern part of the state.)
Sorry Janex, but I called today and they said letters won't be mailed out until next week. So it's looking like Wednesday at the earliest ....
Congrats! I've always thought about doing that but I don't have any programs near me...what did you have to do to get in?
