    I am in the process of moving back to NC. I am going to be attending Fayetteville Tech. I want to know how many students are accepted in the program yearly? How long did it take to be accepted in the program? I am also a CNA registered in another state, and I will be taking the Nurse Aide I test. I am wondering if the test was hard. I have been a CNA for almost 2 years and it has been a while since I have taken the test. The job I work as a CNA now is more of an office type job and I only take BP and make beds. I really don't want to have to retake the course so I am going to challenge the test. I just want to know if the skills test was hard.

    Just review the booklet from BON for skills, a lot of the steps are the same- like provide for privacy, lowering bed etc. There are critical steps that are highlighted and if you miss them you are supposed to fail it. The test was not overly hard in my opinion, just have to do them via that (was purple) booklet. Good Luck.

    Thank you. I am a little nervous because I have heard it was strict. I should be fine. Thanks!

    The program is being completely revamped starting this year so I can only speak for my class. I believe there were about 103 accepted. You can only apply once a year - in January for the program which starts in August. There is no "waiting list" like you will hear people say. Acceptance is based the number of quality points you have accumulated from your pre-req coursework like A&P I and II, Micro, English, etc. The people with the highest numbers get accepted so the more coursework you have done the more likely you are to be accepted. I have a BS in another field but still had to complete A&P and Micro so that took 3 semesters (I took one each semester) so it took about a year to be accepted. Hope that helps.

    A&P I n II is that referring to BIO 168 and 169? I thought they only require high school biology as pre requisites for their program? Im also a FTCC student and finishing up my math pre-req's with hopes of being able to apply for admission next year. My advisor is almost impossible to get intouch with, so im still a little unclear as far as some details id like before applying....but i know on their health programs slide show it doesnt say you need bio 168 & 169, which is A&P I n II, its all high school level courses. So thats why im curious now.

    Technically yes, the high school courses are the only pre-reqs required, however the program is so competitive that students are admitted based on the number of courses they completed that are required by the nursing program (bio 168, 169, eng, psy, and so on. I don't think they require micro any longer.) and their grades in those classes. They are then ranked by the number of points they have and the students with the most points are accepted. The better grades in those courses and the more of them you have completed the better chance you have of getting in. Those classes are not technically pre-reqs but its unlikely to get accepted without having completed some of them so most of us refer to them as pre-reqs. Hope that helped.

    O ok, that makes sense then....I've only completed 4 of the classes so far that could be used for quality points, which has me worried that it may take longer than anticipated to get into their program. If you dont mind me asking, do you know how many Qp's you had when you were accepted? And do you know if your TEAS scores account for anything?

    I had 93 points when I was accepted but I think some were accepted that had high 70s. The number of people accepted will be dependent on how many slots they have. If they have 90 then the top 90 will get in so it will depend on who you are competing with, as to what number of points you will need to be accepted.

    I don't know anything about the TEAS. We didn't have to take it. They have revamped the program starting with Fall 2010 so I know there are different requirements, for example, you must be a CNA and they dropped Micro from the program. You should be able to find most of what you need on the website. The cutoff date for application is usually January 30th so everything you've taken through the end of this year will count so I'd just take as much as you can handle and do the best you can so you can get the most points possible. If you don't get accepted this year, you will have a whole year to knock out those other courses and then you'll stand a really, really good chance of getting accepted. I had all of my other coursework completed and it's made the program much more manageable, especially with having a family.

    Hope that helps. If you have any more questions, please ask. I know I had a TON!!
