    I think I might have to take organic chem at sinclair. They are only offering the class on mondays, OF COURSE that is one of the days I work 3-11 LOL.

    I haven't taken my placement test yet. Hopefully the beginning of next week. Things have been crazy around here these past few weeks. I am waiting on wsu to call me back to make sure that the chem I am going to take at sinclair transfers.
    Yeah, i'm surprised its only offered at 4pm, not really a convienent time. Hopefully it would transfer, if not you could always do it in the spring.

    I was wondering if anyone knows what kind of GPA you really need to get into WSU school of nursing? I know you only have to have a 2.5 or something but I have heard you really need over a 3.5. Has anyone else heard that?

    I got in with a 3.7 and was told by one of my advisers that the cut off would be around 3.5. Talk to an adviser to get more info about the cut off GPA.

    When I talked to the adviser last month she said if you have a 3.2 or better your basically 'in'. Also, if your a transfer student if you have more than 30cr/hr at wsu they ONLY look at that GPA. That is what I am banking on to get in. I only have A&P's and all those electives to take then I will apply.

    The classes I need are all full so I am taking some classes at sinclair and hoping spring quarter is easier to get into....

    I am taking organic chem at sinclair for winter and then I'm taking Sociology and a western civ online through sinclair in winter. Hopefully I can get into micro and some other electives that I need in the spring at WSU, if not I'll take micro and some more electives at sinclair in the spring, because I heard more classes are offered in the fall because of all the incoming freshmen coming in.

    Good luck on getting into the program! I'm not applying into spring of 2010!

    Hey, I am also going to WSU. I also plan on applying in the spring of 2010! Although i am a freshman, stright from high school, who has to take everything still. including language. so yea good luck!

    I am working 30 hrs a week right now! and that worked out ok last quarter so I will see how it continues to go.

    I was reading back some past posts and saw u were planning on taking sociology, I'd reccomend not taking it with Jahanbegloo she makes the class harder than it has to be. I was 2 points from havig an A in there . But I know I could have tried harder and done better but i didn't realize how competitive the nursing program was so now I really have to buckle down.

    Also this is to soccer fan the 2 credit hour elective is an HPR class. Rape Defence Yoga ZUMBA weight lifting bowling and things along that line.

    I am going to try to make a chart of what classes and when I am gonna take them from here on out but I sorta winged it for winter. but i want it to be organized i am so happy I have this little break it gives me time to get organized

    When do you you plan to apply to CoNH?

    I am not exactly sure what net working means on this site and how to use it but i would be more than happy to learn if you could help.

    But about Jahanbegloo she is a nice lady.

    1 paper, really easy I got an A+ on it and she gives you a rewrite option- DO IT. she grades it as if its the final one than gives it back to you to re-write. Hints how I didnt miss any points.

    3 exams not comprehensive- Mainly over vocabulary, so try to know all the vocab words and you should do fine.

    I got B's on all my tests . I read the book most the time and attended most classes. I was 2 points from having an A in the class. which is literatly one question on a exam or one more bonus paper!

    4th exam is comprehensive but it is optional. She drops your lowest score and replaces it with whatever you get on the fourth exam.

    I would reccomend doing the extra credit if I were you if i would have I would have gotten an A instead of a B. usually the extra credit is over movies she showed.

    The tests were sorta hard I always did worse than I expected. . She is not as bad as the people on rate my professor say but I think the class could have been easier but hey I guess its college!

    She talks about alot of contraversal subjects and is very pro-obama. and there will be alot of debates (if your class is talkative). The class isnt that bad but I have heard all the other professors are much easier.

    The class wasnt that bad but it just seems that all the other professors were easier, thats what I heard. good luck. sorry so long

    Hey Everyone! I'm a freshman at WSU even though this is my second year. Spring Quarter 09 I basically screwed myself by signing up for 20 credit hrs, taking macro and micro econ at the same time. It was hard and I ended up getting 0 credit for that quarter. But now I'm trying to get my act together and decided I want to go into the nursing program. Does anyone have any advice about what I can do and also what makes you girls/guys keep your motivation up about school. That was one of my big problems...

    Graduated from WSU Nursing in June (2009). Get ready to work hard, learn a lot in a very short amount of time, and start an awesome career that really does "save lives every day." I'd recommend that you think about what it would take for you to get organized (when will you study, how will you keep track of assignments, how will you maintain a school/social life balance) before you get started. A lot of the organization is trial and error as you go, but I found that keeping a regular social life going was vital to my success (and sanity!) throughout school...feel free to PM me if you have questions....
