    i would call CNET ASAP, if you sent your application in DEC, you should have been given your test date already, we are about to start the month of may and usaully at this point the application process is coming to and end. Call cnet now.
    could luck

    Hi,

    I would like to know if "BLS for Healthcare Providers" is the right CPR class to take as one of the requirements? AHA offers several classes but this one has the credential card based on their course matrix.

    For those who have done the paperwork and interview, please give some insights to the process. Any information or pointers is highly appreciated. Thanks.

    You can ask me any specific questions about the process and i will help if i can

    flip_sugbu Yes the BLS for healthcare providers is the right card. Thats the one i did and they accepted it. As far as the process, get your info in as soon as possible cause you only have 30 days. Be prepared to submit a writtting sample at the actual interview. For me the interview was quick, and i was told i have to wait until june to find out if i was accepted. So how were your cnet and tabes scores if you dont mind me asking. Good luck

    @NURSEGUY1

    Thank you for the quick reply. Just needed to verify if I registered to the right
    CPR class. Below is my test results.

    For CNET:
    AREA PERCENTILE
    Reading / Reasoning Ability 61
    Numerical Ability 79
    Language Ability 93
    Total Score 86

    For TABE A:
    SUBTEST GE
    Math Compu 12.9
    Applied Math 12.9
    Reading 12.9

    Could you please elaborate more on the writing sample. How much time did they allocate for that activity? Were you given a certain topic to write about? Was the writing sample an essay type?

    As for the interview, what kind of questions were they asking? And how long did it take? How many people were there to interview you?

    I know I will have more questions, as I go over the requirements. Again, thank you for the initial response.

    Hi FLIP,

    The writting sample consist of three to five paragraphs about why you chose the field of nursing, why you want to be in this particular program and any experiences that you feel will prepare you for nursing. They was no specific time given to compleete the sample; i was told to just submitt it when i was finished so they can go through the rest of my package. as far as the interview, it was really quick ,about 15 minutes. I was asked if i had any healthcare experience and they went through my package to make sure i had all the requirements. I was told that i was now in the qualified pool of candidates, but will have to wait until all the other candidates take the exams to find out if i will be chosen. The whole process for me took about an hour.

    As i finished my package all the way back in february, i am just waiting for an answer which they say should be about june or july. Feel free to ask any question you have. Good luck with your interview.

    Hi NURSEGUY1,

    I did my test on May 6, and i received my package, I am in the process of getting my package together, my scores were 12.9 for the Math, and 11.3 for the Reading.

    Hi tiffany, good job. Try to fill the package out as soon as possible cause now you are racing against time. If you have any questions you can always ask. I wish this process can be over already so i know if i am going to be accepted or not.

    Hi NurseGuy1,

    Thank You, i am trying my best but unfortunately i didn't attend High School in the US, so i have to get my High School Diploma evaluated so that is going take a little longer, I was told to submit the packet with the evaluation receipt if I'm finish with everything else. Wow so the fact that I passed the test doesn't guarantee me a place in the program?

    Tiffany, all i can say is to try to get everything in on time good luck!
