- Feb 10, '09 by scanda123Well, I am not at Inver Hills, but I am at their sister school, Century. I am waiting to see if I get in. I have the experience...but its a couple years old. I have decent grades...but am worried if my gpa is good enough....I hate the wait!!
- Feb 10, '09 by mollysdirtysprocketDo you know if they consider folks that don't have all the sciences? I'm still missing physio and micro but have a good gpa and work experience. Think I have a shot? I know, the waiting is killing me!!!
- Feb 10, '09 by mollysdirtysprocketOh, and I applied to Century, not Inver Hills-- don't know if they have the same acceptance policies
- Feb 10, '09 by MNRN2BEI believe their #1 decision criteria is how much direct patient care you have.
- Feb 10, '09 by scanda123Well it kind of depends.... you get extra points on your application if you have A's or B's in those classes. Last year I applied and I only had biology 1020, chemistry and medical dosages, terminology, and psych done. I had a gpa of 3.57 and I was given a wait list number of 85. Considering they usually place 65 of the people on the wait list, I didn't think that was so bad. Now that I have A & P I, II and micro done I will have 3 more points on my application. I do have over 480hrs of experience, however it is a couple years old. When I met with an advisory, they said as long as it was within 5 years it counted.
So, I think it could be possible that you get in. If you have over a 3.5 gpa that helps. I know someone who had the same classes as me done, however he had a 4.0 gpa and he got into spring session. I wouldn't count on getting into the fall session. Hope this helps! Good luck
- Feb 15, '09 by mncna08i heard you have to have 400 hours of patient care at inver hills. im workin towards the same thing. good luck! hope you get in!
- Feb 26, '09 by JenRN032004-05, I completed all my generals at Inver Hills CC..applied 2 yrs straight, 3.8 gpa, and the last class I took was Nursing Assist, because where I was working I was making more money and didnt want to take the pay cut.. well needless to say, I didnt get into the program..so I I decided to LPN bridge RN, no more waiting around...It hurt me..but it may be different now..I will keep my fingers crossed for ya!
- Mar 19, '09 by kirchnerfamilyThanks everyone! Yeah, I'm nervous about the lack of CNA work time but...hey, I can't take the pay cut either! Still waiting. They said end of Marchish but here it is...and still no letter. I won't hold my breath this week because it is Spring Break but hopefully I will know soon!!!!!!!!
- Apr 1, '09 by scanda123Did you get your letters yet? I got into Century's RN program, and I start this fall. I hope things went well for you!
