Nursing acceptance letters?

  1. Hello,

    Does anyone know when the acceptance letters for the nursing program are typically sent out from Baker College in Owosso? I can't seem to get a hold of anyone at the college to find out!

    Thanks so much!

    They usually send them out after summer semester becuase people can still take summer classes and have those grades counted towards there grade point average. I'm in the Nursing proram at Baker-Owosso. Good luck to you.

    Thank you for replying... I guess I should have been a little more patient! I received my acceptance letter the day after I posted this question. Best of luck to you as well!

    I received a few... I was attending HFCC, I finished all my pre-req's and took the Net Test-- waited 1 semester {although they told me 1 and 1/2 year on the wait list I could only expect NOT to wait at ALL how narcissitic of me anywho, When I visited the nursing dept in the fall to demand that I-- in all my superiority be bumped onto the "official list of letters to go out because I'm sure it exists" I was highly insulted to find that my 3.973 GPA was no better than that of a mere peasants 2.5 so... I marched out and went right over to Wayne State University because who wants to be apart of a school who holds NO standards Hmph. Transferred IMMEDIATELY only to have to take a few more classes {3} before I'd be eligible to even apply for their Nursing program but WHATEVER I'd had it with the other school plus there is no waiting list as long as you took all your pre-reqs and you have a great GPA.

    On the same day, I received an acceptance letter to Wayne State University undergrad program AND an acceptance letter to HFCC nursing program for winter 08. TORN I committed to both-- but in the end I walked away from HFCC to pursue my Bachelors at Wayne State. Its been a pretty wild ride and I'm still not in the program but get this: I get another letter from HFCC for fall of 08 {of course because you get to tell them no twice} so I go to orientation blah blah blahand then I'm convinced that I'm soooo going to stay at Wayne State because while its no HAVAD {boston accent} it's much more academically challenging which is what you want right? {I know I'm an ass} Anyhow I'm thinking I'll hang onto them in case I can't for some ridiculous reason get into Wayne States program {letters go out in June} I'd have a fallback. Ok so we're in the present I'm killing myself its the end of the semester, projects, and tests and research notebooks and lab practical, studying for finals etc and I get a letter from Henry Ford Health System offering me an opportunity to enter into an accelerated program beginning like next week-- tuition and books paid for in return for a 3-year work committment.:bowingpurSo Im like OK. I think I can walk away from WSU with an offer like that so I had my interview and I got an acceptance letter soooo Im off. BTW I'm very happy about the way it all worked out. I wouldn't have changed a thing. Oh so I still already applied to WSU they're just waiting on grades from this semester 2 A's:chuckle and a B so I should receive an acceptance letter sometime in June... So that would conclude how I received a few acceptance letters.

    What a great story - when it rains it pours, huh? I enjoyed your story and the way you presented it. Your sense of humore will serve you well in the coming months!

    Will any of that WSU work translate into Bacehlor's degree eventually?

    Good luck downtown!

    Thanks you guys. I don't mean to come off as a jerk-- I mean ALL of this has been a very humbling experience and I am soooo looking forward to getting started. As for the Bachelors Program it all works out because Nursing school will be paid for {considering I don't get fired once I start working} but I will need to return to WSU {or wherever if I change my mind} and because I've taken all of my pre reqs I'd go straight into the RN-BSN program where I'd go straight into the senior year of professional nursing courses taking full advantage of tuition reimbursement of course and finisher her off. And hopefully if I'm still bright eyed and bushy tailed pursue the CRNA program.

    of course, it's humor.

    I am trying to get into the nursing program at Johnston Community College in North Carolina.... I have been waiting for my letter since March 1st. I am getting butterflies in my stomach, (as everyone else i, I'm sure). I have taken all my prereq's, did well on the HOBET, and have a 3.00 GPA. I feel a little uneasy about my GPA, I wish it was higher. I worked alot of hours this semester and got B's instead of A's. I pray to God everyday that I get into the program. I have never wanted anything as much as I want this. I am currently a CNA and have been cross-trained as a medical assistant. I work in an urgent care with a physican's assistant who used to be a critical care nurse. He is my mentor and I am so grateful to him for always taking the time to teach me. I learn something new everyday.
    I wish everyone else who is going through the same thing the best of luck, and may God bless you!

    Good luck Shannon! I like how you are excited to learn, and how you found a role model and have a vision for yourself!

    I'm in a nursing program in Toledo, OH. I sometimes look at the MI region since it's so close to where I live, and I plan to eventually become a nurse practitioner (I'd like relocate to MI for that program). I notice the fierce competition (focused on numbers) for pre-nursing students to be more than usual in MI. It's kind of sad, looking at the bigger picture.

    I need high grades in order to reach my future goals, so I do work hard, and am SO excited to have maintained a 3.9 GPA (As in all of my nursing courses so far). There's a girl in my class who doesn't know of my grades, and she thinks she is with the highest grades. She is SO offensive, and my closer friends of mine and myself (and probably the instructors), quietly chuckle when she goes off after an exam, saying her grade, and thinking she's top of the class. I'm also in clinical with her, and how subjective this is, but she's not at all equipped and thinks she is. She's not interested in learning what matters, thinking her grades mean so much. I'm just sharing this with you because it's been such a lesson for me. Nursing is all about delivery (communicating well with collegues/superiors/patients), and proving that you're deserving of respect while giving quality care. Grades are important, but they're just that. And ONLY part.

    If I were you, I'd look into schools outside Mich if I could. While there are waiting lists here in Toledo, they are nothing like MI. I attend Owens Community right now for my LPN and RN, and am planning to go to University of Toledo following for my BSN. It's amazing tough, but it's so worth it. Good luck to you, and don't lose sight of what you can accomplish even in the midst of the 4.0 GPA requirement kind-of-talk.
