Anyone for KBCC Spring 2011 program?

  1. I applied for the Spring 2011 program at Kingsborough and took the NLN on January 7th. Anyone else looking to get into that program?

    How is Sci25? Is it a hard class? also, How was the NLN?
  11. by   pumpkinpoptart
    Theres the word definetly again lol. I do hope so, as will you . Ive heard lots of different scores from 98 up...
    I had Professor ******, Sat mornings. Very nice guy.

    Sci 25 was not easy for me. If you have a physics or chemistry background you should be fine. In the end I did well, but it was alot of work! I prefer A&P anytimeeeee!

    The NLN was ok. There doesnt feel like theres enough time for all the questions given.
    Math is math.. I had lots of percent type questions.
    The verbal seemed to kick most of my friends butts.
    I found the science portion to be mostly a review of all biology, physics, and chem.
    The review book for the test helped tremendously for the science section, in my opinion.

    Sci 25 is a hard class but if you work hard you can do well. Prof ********** was an amazing professor. I'd tell you to definitely try to get into his class.

    Hey fellow prospective KBCC nursing students. Any new info on this topic? We are all waiting patiently, just wondering if anybody heard of an exact date or specific time frame for getting a letter. My NLN was a bit of a disappointment, a 121 with an 83 percentile, but I have a 3.8 GPA, so I know I am still in the running. I have a good friend who is on his last semester at KBCC who got a 129, and got into the program last year with no problems. My chances aren't great, but there is still a good reason to believe I will get in. I panicked at the NLN, and bombed the Math part. I got about half right, actually literally half. But I made up for it in the other two. Math was the only one I didn't finish, where I just put "C" for the last 10 questions. Science 25 I got a B+, and A's in BIO 11 and 12. If anyone knows more info, and wants to dash my hopes of getting in, please do. I just want to know either way already! Although getting into the program is pretty dam important to me. I am a guy, so I hope they don't have a small male quota that has already been filled Anyway, good luck to everyone, it would be nice if everyone could get in. Whoever does definitely earned it.

    I believe they're accepting 100 students out of about 130 or so that took the nln. So I believe your chances of getting in are pretty good (especially with that gpa). We're all just sitting tight as of now. I spoke to the nursing dept this morning and they said they're going to make the decisions sometime this week. Hopefully not going to be too much longer of a wait...
