    I am going to be applying for that class as well, but have never even spoken to anyone that has gone through the class.

    I am applying for the program as well. I've spoken with people who had friends/relatives go through it and say it can be tough, especially if you try to work, but it can be done. I have a friend who did the LPN to RN fast-track and she worked the whole time, but said it wasn't too bad. I'm taking nursing pharmacology this spring, because I heard it would help.

    Anyone have any idea how many applications they have received yet for 2014 or what they received for previous years?

    From last year's forum, it looks like 91 applications were submitted by the deadline and around 72 are
    accepted into the program. I just turned my application in today. The long wait begins!

    Tmassey, when you turned in your application did you get a a contact name for updates on applications? Or a timeframe for when a decision is made?

    From what I can tell from the other threads is that it takes about a month from the application deadline for acceptance emails to go out. I am enrolled in my last prerequisite this Spring and I'm taking my TEAS next week. I know it is a long shot but my GPA is decent and I hope to make at least the minimum on the TEAS.

    Well I hope the follow the same method as last year. Good luck on your TEAS. I am confident you will do well.

    michealjarvis,

    No she didn't give a contact name. She told me I would be getting an e-mail as soon as my application was entered into the system, so maybe that will have some contact information on it?

    therewillbejoel,

    I took the TEAS this past weekend. It is not easy but definitely doable. I only took a few practice tests with answer explanations at the back of the book and I passed. Really brush up on basic algebra, reading comprehension, biology (especially DNA, RNA, meiosis, etc) and sentence structure. I had multiple visions I would fail throughout the test lol but I ended up passing. But yeah, just brush up on those things and take a few practice tests and you will do well! Good luck!

    Hey everyone! I will be applying to this program as well (hopefully, if I pass the teas). I'm taking it next week.....and terrified! I bought the teas v study guide....so we shall see. Does anyone know how many applicants there are so far? Good Luck to everyone!

    Thanks for the tips! It's also my understanding that students are ranked by the GPA solely and the TEAS results aren't included-students just need to meet the minimum to be eligible. This sound right?

    I was told by the advisor ......applicants with all the required pre-reqs completed, min gpa and min teas score have first preference. so pretty much a person who has all completed pre reqs by the time they submit the application and a gpa of 2.5 and a teas score of 70 will get in before a person who is lacking a pre-req with a gpa of 4.0 and a teas score of 100.

    I see. Unless there is a significant drop in applications this cycle I am preparing myself for being wait-listed since I have one last class I'm finishing this spring. At least I can hope for being a high alternate! I read in another thread that most often all students accept the offer but some will drop around orientation time. Fingers crossed.
