Hey..I just got accepted into the Inver Hills nursing program for fall 2013. I have a BA in Psychology (I graduated in Dec. 2006) with a 3.22 gpa. I took the accuplacer placement test at Inver Hills and didn't have to repeat English or math. Summer 2012, I took anatomy & physiology I, lifespan psych, and medical dosages. Fall 2012, I took medical terminology
(not required but helpful), interpersonal communication & I took the nursing assistant course (if you take it at Inver Hills and take it as a "continuing education" course, it's less expensive and it is only a 2 wk, vs 5 wk course. Only thing is, you don't get credit hours for it). It took me two semesters to complete my pre-reqs
. It's super competitive so I'm sure you need all of your pre-reqs done before applying. I think if you have a few liberal arts courses left, that's ok, although they'd like you to have them completed before you begin program. I got A's in all the courses I've taken, so I currently have a 4.0 gpa. By the time I applied, I had 13 months experience working as direct care staff in a group home (I left that job before my NA job) and 1.5 months experience working in a hospital as a nursing assistant. And I got a 136 on my PAX. So, at time of my app, I didn't have microbio or a&p II (which a lot of people told me I really needed to have before applying). This was my first time applying. I only applied to Inver and like I said, I got in for this coming fall semester. I hope this helps and best of luck!
