Good morning! Happy New Year to all! I start my NURS 130 for spring this week and I noticed on the calendar on angel it says we have a pre-test on math. YIKES! I wonder if it will count or is it a practice test? I am so scared---did you guys take it already, and if so if you don't mind is it basic math, conversions, or like algebra? Any information is appreciated. Thanks so much.
- 0Mar 23, '12 by JustFiguringItOutHi everyone! I just received my invitation e-mail this afternoon to go in and register for NURE-130 for Summer 2012. I am currently enrolled in my first semester with UCC, taking CHE 105 and PSY 204 (Psych of Lifespan). I thought they accepted applicants based on a point system (GPA with them + credits with them) so I am slightly confused as to how I received an invitation when I do not yet have a GPA established with the school. Oh well, I'm not complaining!! Anyone else starting this summer?

Yes it is by a point system. Just because one is invited doesn't grant them admission. There is still a process that day after they speak about the program to meet with a counselor down the hall which they will line up according to your points. Next that counselor will check your profile and if you qualify you choose your day. Shortly after they send you over to the next building to register. Good luck!

A school in Staten Island had 30 entrants and only 2 pass recently. Trinitas does not interview but accepts you by academic and other criterium so may have more not pass that might have been screened out in an interview. People who post here about failing are often eating sour grapes. Some professors are pretty cold but most were very helpful. The program is very hard and it is compounded by the stress of life, family, deaths and illnesses, pregnancies, weddings and all that is going on. A nursing program will change how you think like a police academy or boot camp. You reason differently, communicate differently. Some adapt quick and pass and some can't handle that and fail. I passed in December, just passed my NCLEX and I think the program was great. I learned a lot. The last semester was really awesome. But very hard. Very very very hard. I would come into exams very well prepared and get a 78 and be amazed at how difficult the exam was. But 78 is a pass. The exams are fair and with no trick questions. All the students that got special awards for being most helpful and best grades etc. were unemployed. Either had a sugar daddy or momma or living with mom and dad or collecting unemployment. Unemployed people do better in this program for obvious reasons. Many others passed. I'm the bread winner, married, worked 30+ h per week the whole time. I got sick once in 4 years and it was during the summer break. No one in the family died, wife didn't get pregnant. It's doable. Hope you do well.
