Thanks a lot.
I am a LPN (12 yrs exp), I work rehabilitation. I am already registered for Med Term to prepare me for A&P next semester, I hope it won't be a waste of time. I have to retake all my sciences because they are so old. Except for chemistry that I took recently. I am at OU right now but will be starting classes at MCC - to save money.
I am interested in Clinton Township location. Auburn Hill has LPN-RN bridge but I live so close Clinton, like 5 minutes away.
When I finish my prereqs I will be applying to Baker, and MCC.
What do you think of Baker so far? Do you think I need to take medical term.
I took all of my prereqs at Baker (Clinton Twp), I dont know how much you know about their application/ranking process, so I just going to assume you don't know anything (better safe, than sorry). For their ranking of nursing applicants they give you points based on your science gpa (x2), gen ed gpa, transfer credits, and retaking classes.
If I tried to explain it entirely I would probably confuse you...a lot. I hope this link works, go here and click on the "click here" for addition program info and the ranking explanation begins on page 5 ("Criteria I-V")
Our campus used to rank applicants out of 24 pts, but they are switching the enterance exam from the NET to the Kaplan, so I believe it will be out of 27 points. The program is HIGHLY competative, as it is everywhere else.
I really like Baker, however, I just found out I got into their program yesterday, so I am in no position to have any issue with them. As for med terminology, I never took it and I had no issue with A&P; I actually enjoyed both A&P I&II, the hardest classes for me were Micro and Patho I think.
I hope I helped a little bit!
