Thanks guys. I'm so nervous. And congrats to you 94%, that's awesome!
Is a calculator provided for the entire math section or just certain parts?
How long does it take to get results from Hesi exam?
I have narrowed my choices down to two programs. It becomes very expensive paying for classes to meet requirements for all of these different programs. So, I have plan A (ADN program) which I have already met the requirements for then plan B (LPN-bridge-RN) just in case I don't get accepted. I am still weighing my options. I would be able to work as LPN while in RN program. But has anyone worked as a student nurse or nurse tech while in an ADN program? If so, after how long? I am a certified CNA, will that help me get a student nurse job? I am trying to plan my finances for the next few years. Do student nurses do different work from CNAs?
Oh, and I have yet to work as a CNA because I am still working my day job and I am not sure I want to quit my full time to do CNA work. I also don't want to take a pay cut and quit my job until I know that I am accepted.
I wouldn't give up so fast if I were you. You have the passion and trust me you don't want to walk away from your dream and then later regret it. Find you another job and see if you feel the same way. It may just be that particular job.
I'm sorry but this applies to pretty much any field you go into now. So please don't let that discourage you. I have a Bachelors degree in another field from two years ago and I still hadn't found a job in that field. Thank God I had a decent job already. Needless to say I am still employed there.
I definitely didn't let if discourage me. I have an interview for a job tomorrow that could change everything for me. I am glad that I have that education because if I never had it, I wouldn't even be considered for this job. I will still pursue nursing because of my passion for healthcare.
If you are truly passionate about something, keep pushing forward. Everything will eventually fall into place. There is no nursing shortage in my city!
Did they send an email or letter?
Me too, nothing yet. They have two of my transcripts and I'm waiting on my final grades to post so that they can get my other. They said that they could determines acceptance from those two though. I know of four people who have all gotten acceptance letters. Maybe I was rejected.
I understand your dilemma.
I understand your dilemma.
If you're almost finished with a four year degree, you're going to be hard pressed to raise that gpa up without taking 1.5 million courses. Retaking classes won't help you, I don't think. Schools generally have a minimum cumulative gpa, and that includes all the classes you've ever taken, so there's no benefit over just taking new classes
I have taken classes at 4 different colleges off and on over the past 11 years (a lot of classes). I am just curious, how will the nursing school calculate my GPA?. Classes that I have repeated for a better grade at another college, will they include both attempts? I have 160 hrs of college credits. Will 2 year colleges include my Masters GPA?
I am currently a pre-nursing student who just finished a CNA program. I am currently employed in another field (11 years). I am thinking about trying to get a position as a CNA. I know that I don't want to work in LTC. What other areas hire new CNAs? I am hoping that being comfortable with patient care will be a benefit in nursing school. What areas pay the most? What areas are the best to start in?
I am hoping to attend ASU's ASN program. Has anyone here attended care to share info on admissions, GPA, etc.?
I haven't heard anything yet either. I am so nervous. I heard they don't start clinicals until 2014 though. I will have my pre-reqs completed this summer. What would I do until then if I'm accepted? I already have Bachelors so I have all my generals too.
