    I graduated from this program (mid-manhattan) in june2010. I am now an LPN attending an RN program as well. Its a good program but take advantage of what you can. no one will spoon feed you anything if you want it you gotta get it yourself. stay on top of the teachers if you need something done (especially towards graduation time) once youre done with the first half of the year the rest is easy breezy (alternating 2 weeks clinicals/class...but you dont get much done in class). word of advice: stay motivated. keep reading. USE THE STUDY GUIDES PROVIDED FOR YOU (not many schools will hand you all the material you need for the year without you having to look). dont get caught up in the politics/gossip (there is plenty) and SPEAK UP if you want something. also as a new grad jobs are few and far between. aim for 85+ average in order to get recommended for a bridge program lpn/rn. message me for my e-mail if anyone has any questions.

    Thank you for all the advice. I am currently in the process of applying for the program. I passed the c-net, and will be taking the TABE soon. I have many questions I would like to ask you. Can I please have your email?

    Thanks!

    Hey everyone!

    I'm new on here and just wanted to first off say good luck on your career endeavors
    Secondly, i think you should really harass them about your results because I took my C-net exam on January 24th, and I got back my results February 14th or so. My TABE exam is next wk and I'm very very nervous cause from what it seems like its very hard. Does anyone know exactly what the TABE exam covers???

    Thank you so much in advance!

    Since you passed how is it graded ? ... please and thanks is it by section or overall

    The C-net is graded based on how many questions you answered correctly in comparison to the everybody else who took it. So, even if you scored 40/50, it isn't 90%. In order to take the 2nd exam, TABE A, you have to get 50% on all the sections plus at least a 50% overall.

    I'm sure you passed but missed your TABE exam, you can explain it to them. Plus, it isn't your fault that you didn't receive your results, its their fault and therefore out of your hands.

    Hope all of this helped

    I sat for the test last Saturday. I will have to wait 3 weeks to get my score. If someone passed the test, would he/she be so kind as to provide me with his/her score and percentile?

    Thank you

    Hey Girls!

    I passed both the C-net and the TABE exam.

    I took the C-Net in February and got:

    Reading/Reasoning ability: 31 correct, 51%
    Numerical Ability: 47, 84%
    Language Ability: 52, 57%

    Total Score: 130, 73%

    I took the Tabe exam in March and got perfect scores (12.9) on all three sections (reading, math, numerical)

    I also handed in my application already and since I was the first person to hand it in I'm basically just waiting till June to hear back. The director told me that she doesn't see any problems in me getting home so I really hope I do get in.

    Hope this helped, if you have any questions feel free to ask and good luck =)

    Hello Poettree,
    Could you tell me what the tabe test is like... Is it computer based???
  11. by   poettree
    Thank you for your kind words, I hope that we all get accepted!

    The TABE exam is computerized and is made up of reading, math, and numerical analysis. If you pass the C-net exam, the TABE should be easier. There is less time allotted for this exam but I believe the grading for this exam is not based on how well you scored compared to other test takers. The TABE exam is used to see if you perform above a certain grade level. Also, you receive your TABE scores right after you take it so it beats waiting another 3wks for your results. Hope this helped and keep me updated =)

    Hi Poettree. Congrats on your progress so far. Sounds like you are in! I am a male prospective student. Like you I have passed both Cnet and the Tabe recently. I am now preparing the docs to return with the application.

    Was the interview easy sailing? Or a real grilling on why you want to be a nurse? Just curious. Can't wait to return mine and get it off my head.
