How "Wake Tech Community College" Nursing Program works.

  1. 0
    First and foremost Wake Tech does not have a waiting list!

    They actually use a point system, which I shall explain to you.

    The most points you can get is 270!

    You get points for the following classes:

    Bio 168: A&P 1
    Bio 169: A&P 2
    Bio 175: Gen. Micro.
    Bio 155: Nutrition
    Bio 271: Patho.
    Psy 150: Gen. Psy.
    Psy 241: Dev. Psy.
    Eng 111: Exp. Writing
    Eng 112: Arg. Based Research
    Humanities Elective

    Bio 168 & 169 classes point system:
    A= 32
    B= 24
    C= 16
    D= -20
    F= -40

    Bio 175, 155, 271, Psy 150 & 241
    classes point system:
    A= 24
    B= 18
    C= 12
    D= -20
    F= -40

    Eng 111, 112 & Humanities Elective classes point system:
    A= 12
    B= 9
    C= 6
    D= -10
    F= -20

    You can get a total of 50 extra points for taking the TEAS (which is mandatory)!
    To get the 50 points, you must score at least 70% on the test.

    It is recommend you take 8 classes, before applying for the Clinical Nursing portion of the program which is 5 terms. 2 fall terms, 2 spring terms, and 1 summer term.

    You must also being registered as a CNA, before applying for the clinical nursing portion, with at least 40 volunteer/working hours as a CNA.

    If you have anything other questions, just ask!
    I will also update if I notice I left anything out.

    At my info session prior to Fall 2012, they are going to stop giving points for patho, I guess it will be included in another class... So check with advising before registering for it- might not need to take it!!!
    I had a few classes transfer over from my previous college in NY- that was kind of nice. After this semester, I have one pre-req left to take. It's going to be a very busy semester!!!

    I have a question for anyone who has been accepted into the Wake Tech RN program....After next semester I will have 211 points, including TEAS points, how likely is it that I will get in? Also, I got a B in ENG112 can I take it over to try for an A or will they only accept the 1st grade? I have been told things have changed since my info session.

    Thanks!
