Nursing Program to transfer to from Baker College?

  1. 0
    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me what schools might take Baker College credits? I currently have all of my required pre-req's for their current nursing program. However, preparing for the chance that I do not make it in this year, I want to have another possible option.

    Currently I have completed 59 credits:

    AP I, AP II - 10 credits
    Medical Terminology - 4 credits
    Microbiology - 5 credits
    Intro to Healthcare - 4 credits
    General Psychology - 4 credits
    Human Holistics/Nutrition - 4 credits
    Pathophysiology - 4 credits
    Comp I, Comp II - 8 credits
    Elect Spreadsheets - 2 credits
    Intro to Database Solutions - 2 credits
    Algebra - 4 credits
    Oral Communications - 4 credits
    Workplace Communications - 4 credits

    Their programs are very competitive and you are penalized for re-taking/transferring any classes so if you received a B+ in a SCI class, you are unable to retake it and with their programs being so competitive, a B+ is sometimes a major handicap. Even a program change can hinder your chances of getting into a competitive program. Needless to say, I received a B+ in a core science class.

    If someone has any experience with transferring from Baker College, please let me know how the transfer went and what classes you may have had to retake? Thank you!

    U of M, Ferris State, and Central take all and/or partial credits from Baker. You would have to contact each schools academic office for specifics.

    Which campus? Have you taken the Kaplan exam yet?

    The competition is awful at Baker. It's enough to make someone ill.

    Thanks!

    That's what I keep seeing. Partial credits. I am going to have to contact another school if I don't get in since the program is just going to grow and continue to be more competitive, I hate the worrying and the anxiety of waiting to find out if you got in and so far, I keep hearing that I still have a chance...but even one of my friends with a 4.0 and a decent percentage on the Kaplan is nervous!

    I took the Kaplan. It sounded like everyone's scores were in the 60's-70's with only a couple of people scoring in the low 80's. No one scored higher than 85. I know I scored better than a lot of people but I don't know how many other people scored in the 70's. Bah! It's enough to make anyone go mad!

    The Kaplan test was insanly vague and difficult. Everyone I spoke with felt like they were not prepared even with the hours of studying. It was almost like you either know it or you don't and there was no way to really prepare.

    For sure! I was told the average score on the Kaplan was low-mid 70's, and 80's are rare. If you got more than 75-ish%, you should be in good shape. Also, don't forget that even if you didn't make it in, you will get an extra point for re-applying the next semester (this greatly improves the chances you will get in the next go round, a point can make a HUGE difference!)

    I was worried about getting in, and I don't know what the lowest accepted point score was, but I know someone with a 23 point something got in this semester. I wish I had known that all summer, could have used that energy spent worrying for other things lol.

    P B and J...I also heard that a girl got in with a gpa of 3.6 and points totaling 22 point something. That alot of people lie about there points when it comes to getting in. I talked to girl while waiting to take the kaplan that she was friends with the girl that got in with 22 points...So I am hoping that it is true cause I have 24 points and am nervous about applying.
