I just moved to inver grove from ny and I was wondering if any of the newly and recent admitted nursing student from inver hill can talk about their journey into the nursing program ,the prerequisites they applied with and the gpa they were admitted on . Thank you .
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!
