    hey congrats to all those that were accepted. i just finished an lpn program and now going to rn. i like st. pauls because they'd accept my college credits which i have a few but even if i don't have them all, their curriculum has everything you'd need and can get started sooner than having to wait for all the pre requisites first.

    my question is, can you please tell me what the application process was like? what was their testing like? what should i brush up on most? what are they really looking for in terms of credentials? do i have to have an a+ high school transcript? i'm wondering if there is a waiting list.

    i have an appt with them in two weeks. they don't offer much over the phone nor on the website. any info would be greatly appreciated! thanks.

    hello i was accepted to st pauls for the fall but declined i am too nervous about them not being accredited and the thread st. pauls 2010 combined scared me away. now that being said i have heard good things about the school mostly bad but i can tell you the hesi is simple i am horrible in math and still scored a 90 percent in math and 95 in reading/grammer and vocabulary section buy the book they offer and you will do fine.

    if you don't mind me asking being that you have your lpn why don't you go to a school thats accredited by nlnac already you can even find some online lpn to rn or lpn to bsn programs. i am not trying to discourage you about st pauls just giving you my opinion on the program i would go there in a heart beat if they were accredited but being an associate degree program and not accredited is a double negative to me i know i am not a nurse but i have been searching jobs and new grad programs and they all want bsn's and a few state you must be a graduate of an nlnac accredited school so i have decided to take my pre req's at a cuny school and then proceed to a school thats accredited if st. pauls is accredited by then i may well reapply.

    now to more answer your question i didn't have an a+ in high school more b and the little bit of college credits i did have were b's so thats that.

    good luck to you

    Hi all -- received official acceptance letter today (7/18). Just a simple letter stating that I'm officially accepted into the school's evening nursing program. Orientation is Aug 29 with first day of classes Aug 30. More information will follow as stated in the letter.

    An issue came up 2 weeks ago when I went in to hand in my medical documentation. They said I would have to take CPR course ASAP in order to be accepted into the program. I didn't hesitate and signed up to take the CPR course they offer (cost $100 - which is higher than other sites that offer same course but those were already filled up for atleast 2 more weeks). I felt a little annoyed because in the pre-admission letter it said we need to be CPR certified before classes start. Anyway, I took the class they offer and the other prospective students also said they found out a week before (via phone calls) that they need to have the CPR course completed by 7/17. Anyone else had this issue?

    Congrats to those accepted. I have had family and friends who attended this school (all within the past 2-3 yrs) who had great things to say about it. They have found jobs in hospitals (3 of them in ER) and other facilities.
