Hello all, I was wondering if anyone else on here applied for the 2013 Hunter generic nursing program. For those of you applying to the traditional generic program how do you feel about the seats being reduced to 50 due to the... Read More

    Hi

    Did anyone take TEAS V, if yes is it much different from NLN?

    Thanks

    Hey bemal.. I didn't taking take the TEAS V, but I'm planning to take it in February since I'm applying to other schools as well. I'd say for the most part the test is similar. You don't need to know any vocabulary words. Instead, you need to know things like punctuation, grammar, spelling, sentence structure,etc...

    Yeah--just the study book. I had taken the coursework already but was rusty on all of it. I had never taken physics so I had to teach myself that--got a physics for dummies book. I also read the McGraw Hill Nursing School Prep book but I don't know if that was as helpful for the NLN (it was helpful for the TEAS). If you're rusty on old topics, the cliff notes science books are excellent review and make sure you take those practice tests!

    I've done both the TEAS and NLN--the NLN is harder, I think. The TEAS has some really annoying parts to it, like spelling and roman numerals. The bio on the TEAS is harder, but the science on the NLN is overall more difficult and requires a deeper understanding. I'm actually retaking the TEAS today because I need at least 75% in math for Downstate and I got 70%, so annoyed but hopefully it'll push my overall score in everything up.

    Thanks Lebron123 and ebinbrooklyn

    I took TEAS in September. I actually had to retake it because I ran out of time on the reading section. I scored overall 90%.
    I'm taking NLN in February and I'm little worried about the vocabulary part. Do you guys know if it's just the vocabulary from the book?

    Yes and no....I had some old GRE flashcards that I went through a few times. Not sure how much they helped. Also took the advice of an old college professor and read the New York Times editorial section every day since that beefs up your vocabulary and puts you in contact with new words. That did seem to help a little bit. If you find that's your weakest area, I'd recommend the GRE flashcards and studying roots, prefixes, etc...

    Okay, so stupid question for you folks here: I am literally out of classes to take at Hunter. I've got all my prerequisites done, all my generals done, I literally have nothing BUT the nursing parts done in order to get a degree. So I'm considering not taking classes this semester--would that mean I can't apply for 2013? Do you have to be a student at the time of application? I don't want to spend a grand on a class I don't need/want just to keep enrollment status there--trying to figure out how to handle this?

    Hi ebinbrooklyn

    I'm not sure, I would think that you need to take a class.
    Why don't you email nursing advisor from hunter,
    She is great, anytime I have a question she responds right away

    I think she must like you more than me--I'm lucky to get replies a week after sending an email

    You are already a matriculated student of Hunter College, and Hunter-Bellevue's website listing details says nothing about being being registered the semester you are applying other than for those taking courses they wish considered in the Spring semester prior to Fall admission.

    If you have truly literally taken all the pre-nursing, gen ed, core, etc.. classes why not apply for either the last of the former generic which starts Fall 2013 or the "new" program which starts the same time?

    All that can happen is you will either be admitted or rejected, no one is going to drag you out onto Lexington or Second Avenue and tie you to a lamp post or something. *LOL* Your GPA is what is is at this point for both pre-nursing and overall, so perhaps the only reason for dithering is to retake the NLN for a *better* score.

    You are not alone. Many, many pre-nursing students have been left cooling their jets haven taken all there is to offer at Hunter except being admitted to the nursing program so they can complete that part of the degree. Some apply again and again until they get in, others move on to nursing programs elsewhere.

    Seek out academic advisement from the nursing department. You never know, maybe so many are applying to the new program that the odds are better for the last class of the old, or vice versa.

    Hi
    I am also applying to Hunter Nursing for Fall 2013. Can anybody help me to clarify the question - do we need to send domestic transcript to the CUNY/UAPC and if yes, is there any application we need to fill up with it ( i mean to the admission office)? Or we just have 1 application on Nursing CASThanks in advance
