Admissions Process at Lutheran School of Nursing and how intense is the program

  1. Hi everybody! I'm new to this site and I'm really excited to be a part of it. I live in St.Louis and I'm applying to Lutheran School of Nursing. If anyone has attended or will be attending I would like to ask you a few questions.
    How did the admissions process go for you?
    How long after applying did you find out if you were accepted or not?
    Is it hard to get accepted?
    Does everyone who applies get accepted on a first come first serve basis?
    When do they review applications for the fall and spring?
    Did you take prerequisites there or somewhere else and did it effect whether you got in or not?
    Do a lot of people stay in the dorms and is it safe?
    Sorry I know this is a lot of questions but I have just one more.
    Is the entrance exam hard and what kind of material is on the math and reading sections?

    I really want to get in to this school because nursing is the only thing I can see myself doing. I know that this is a lot of questions but if you could just tell me what you know I would very grateful. Thanks!

    Hello! I'm an LSN graduate of 2013.

    Admissions was okay, I think I was waitlisted for about a year. In the mean time, I took some extra classes that I believe I needed (bio ethics). So make sure you have your pre-requisite classes in order! Some of my cohorts had to take other classes during nursing school. It was awful for them.

    Is it hard to get accepted? I believe not. It's just the waitlist that can be cumbersome.

    They offer some pre-requisite classes there and some you may have to take elsewhere. They are affiliated with Webster University but their credit hours can be expensive! I took my one class at a community college. Also, they accepted all my prerequisites from my other schools (I had moved from California).

    I had a handfull of my cohorts that stayed in the resident rooms. They were mainly from Illinois or had lived far enough where the commute was unbearable. I haven't heard any negative experiences from the dorm - but it's just not my personal preference. As far as safety, the school itself is safe, the area that it's surrounded by is probably a little sketchy. But as previously stated, I heard nothing negative. They have security from their affiliated hospital that drives around the campus.

    Entrance exams were easy. Math was nothing harder than division/fractions.

    I hope that answered some of your questions and good luck!
