- 0Mar 2, '13 by gabookwormYes, that's my biggest concern as well. I can't even get a hospital around here to talk to me because the market is so tight, so I'm short on experience. I really want to be accepted for October because I'm just ready to move forward and do this, but I guess May wouldn't be the end of the world if I had to wait... I have really young children who wouldn't mind having me around for a little while longer before the craziness starts. At this point, I could maybe get a long-term care job, but no one wants to hire someone who could very well be quitting in six months, and I'd prefer hospital experience at this stage.
- 0Ugh. I am so annoyed with ATI. I took the TEAS yesterday. It was computer-based, but they gave me a printout saying it will take "48 business hours" for my results to post to my account. Does that mean I have to wait six business days (assuming eight hours in a day)? And really, why even give computer-based exams if they aren't scored immediately? I may as well have done a scantron version. What a waste of perfectly good technology. I've read so many other posts saying their scores were printed immediately... I don't get why ATI doesn't have a standardized process for everyone who takes the same exam. I'm not a very patient person when it comes to this sort of thing, so this long application process may be the end of me. Sorry... just venting.
- 0They finally posted this evening! I did well, actually. I'm pretty pleased, given how long it's been since I've really been in school (other than a couple pre-reqs here and there). I looked at the study guide the night before, but didn't study otherwise. Not that I'm convinced good TEAS scores will make up for my lack of CNA experience... I know that will be a strike against me, so I need all the help I can get in other areas.
- 0Mar 7, '13 by UndsnowOf course! It's just an email interview basically. They send you the questions (at a time of your choice) and you have 30 minutes to reply back via email with your responses.
And that's good about your TEAS results. I've read that they way pretty heavily on that, so that's good for you! My biggest concern (aside from lack of CNA experience) is that I'll be graduating in May with my first BS. Even though I have all the prereqs, I'm afraid that will count against me.
- 0Mar 7, '13 by gabookwormThanks! I'm itching to get it scheduled and behind me, though I know the waiting will be so hard after it's done. I'm starting to stress about how the heck we're going to pay for all of it if I do get accepted. Of course, that applies to any accel program because none of them are cheap! Student loan limits are set with four-year programs in mind, not 2+ years crammed into a year. *painful*
