I am applying to get into CNM's Nursing program straight from UNM, so I am not yet familiar with how they sort applicants. I heard that they accept those who have been on the waiting list longest (if so, then I'm SCREWED!)...if... Read More

    Hopefully they can give you better info. If you petition in August '11, you would most likely start in Summer '12.

    I might as well finish my UNM pre reqs in the fall then and apply there. I was just hoping to start sooner I guess I will find out at the next information session. But they will tell me the same thing they told you. I did call the nursing dept and the lady said I could petition in the fall for spring semester. But maybe she was just an admin assistant though

    Well, I wish you the best luck! I was also a UNM student who transferred. UNM's Nursing program is very, very competitive. They only accept 6-8 (on average) applicants per semester out of 60-90. So 10%. I couldn't deal with the uncertainty of how many semesters I would have to petition to get accepted! Good luck!

    Are you petitioning in the fall now, or are you petitioning in the next few weeks? I heard they did away with summer petitioning! Also, did you take Hesi II yet? How was it?

    I am petitioning this summer. The petition dates for 2011 are Feb. 9-11, June 22-24, and September 28-30. I know the canceled the summer petitioning date last year- I hope they don't do it again!

    And no, I haven't taken the HESI II yet; the HESI A2 is what is req'd before you petition. Good luck to you!!!

    Where are you finding this info? I called yesterday to CNM Main Campus and was told next petitioning date is this month, there will be no summer petitioning, and they have not yet set a date for fall petitioning. Are you in Rio Rancho? Maybe it is different there? I just thought everyone applied ay main campus. Also, what is your GPA? Did you take Microbio at UNM? How was it? I had a tough time with my first exam, but I also was on Cicodin after having my wisdim teeth pulled My next 21st is Monday, so it better be good! Lol

    I am at Main, too...
    I attended to most recent information session, and that's the information they gave us. I emailed the Assistant Director of the Nursing Dept. and asked her, so I'll let you know what she says!

    I have a 3.8, and I am taking Micro right now at CNM. I got a 95% or the first exam, an 83% on the second (yikes!)...I am stressing about the lab midterm, though!
