    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 was at the South Bend campus.

    I just think they need to go out earlier because we have to respond to campuses by Oct 22nd. I will hope for tomorrow
    If you think thats bad, some Fall 2010 applicants had to have a response in to some campuses before they even heard back from others!!!

    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.

    Geez oww, you sure are defensive! But I do think labelling me as "arrogant" and "selfish" is a bit presumptuous of you when you don't know me at all. Evidently you did not read my prior post regarding why I dropped out. Honestly, I'm kind of taken aback my your rude, "opinionated" comment. I understand you are under a lot of stress right now waiting for your letter (I was in your shoes as well), but venting towards me while insulting my character is not going to impact whether or not you get in the program. You will be amazed when you get into the program all of the different types of people that are accepted and their individual reasons for pursuing a nursing degree. Even though some people may have different reasons than yourself, it doesn't mean that they are wrong. Nursing school is a huge learning experience (not just academically), and what I learned about myself is that it is not the career path for me. With that being said, I hope you can respect the choices I've made for my life, as I respect yours. I wish you well on your nursing school journey and best of luck for in getting into your local campus program!

    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!
    It was completely different from what I thought it was going to be! I have never worked in a hospital or really known exactly was a nurse does (especially a nursing student), and I didn't have it in me to do all of the "clinical" work that was required. Don't get me wrong, I do care about people, but the job description far exceeds my "comfort level." It seems a lot of my fellow classmates were just as shocked as I was about what they were expected to do in clinicals, but they were much "stronger" individuals than myself. Four people dropped out of the program within the first six weeks (myself being one of them.) There were a select few of my classmates who had a strong, lifelong desire to be nurses, and I respect them more than anyone, because it really does take a lot of compassion and strength to be a truly dedicated nurse. I was in it for a quick degree and decent salary...big mistake on my part. Good luck to all of you on your journies!

    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!!

    I have to disagree. I myself dropped out of the RN program just a week ago and it was my first year. (And trust me, it was NOT because classes were too difficult!) I understand that you may really want to be a nurse, but I discovered it just wasn't for me. That being said, you have no right to get in over me, because my scores were very high, and I EARNED my spot fair and square. I'm sorry if this upsets you, but it is what it is.

    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.

    You really need to calm down. I can completely relate with how those people feel, and I was accepted into the program.
    I'm not saying that there is anything wrong with having to retake a class to earn an A, but IVY TECH should have some way of counting points to reflect that a class was taken twice. For example, if an A is received on the first attempt, then 30 points should be given. If an A was received on the second attempt, then perhaps 25 points should be given.
    Everybody has issues with the system, and as of right now, there is nothing that can be done about it. But seriously, if they want to vent, then let them.

    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?
    It wasn't that different from nursing. The four main prereqs are required along with chem and micro. So six grades are taken into account on the same point system the nurses use (180 total possible). The TEAS is required, but it's only used as a tie breaker. (You also don't have to get a certain score on the TEAS to qualify.) The program is fairly new at the South Bend campus (just been around for two years) so maybe some of the other campuses will see the program pop up before lone.
