    Thanks for all the information and advice. I know for our Kaplan test we ARE NOT allowed to use calculators...strange as it may seem, that at some colleges you can during the test and others you can't...but I am prepared not to use the calculator....thanks again and I will be brushing up on all the systems of the body and the basic biology! Thanks and keep me posted on WHEN you GET ACCEPTED into the program! Positive thinking, see yourself in the program!

    Does anyone know if you get your score immediately after you finish the exam?

    We did, and you get log in information so that you may check out your scores from home, too.

    Do you get your scores right after the Kaplan test? Yes, along with a breakdown of areas of weakness as they apply to the NCLEX test map. It also shows you the test questions you got wrong, and what the correct answer is, along with the rationale for the correct answer. Do you get your score right after the NCLEX test? No, and it is the longest 48 hours you can imagine (48 hours after you finish your NCLEX test you can pay Pearson $7 and see if you passed or not, but they will not tell you what your score is).

    What would be the best thing to use to prepare for the writing section of the test? Is the Kaplan book good for this section?

    I took the test this week and I studied from the Kaplan Nursing Admission Test study book that I got at Barnes and Noble. The reading section was pretty easy. The writing section was annoying.

    Hi I am beginning this fall 2010 the nursing program at baker, I have transfered 8 credits from UofM flint, nothing more, I am wondering what to expect because the school is set up on quarters, and those quarters last 10 weeks as opposed to 15 weeks like a semester at UofM, what I am wondering is just how intense will my science prerequisites be? I am taking Micro, A&P I, and SPK 201 Fall 2010, any info would be greatly appreciated

    Ok im signed up for A&P, Micro, and SPK what should I expect? How intense will these classes be over a 10 week timeframe? 10 weeks is a short amount of time to cram alot of useful info into you, so I would love any suggestions info, I welcome questions anything. I get the impression from Baker Flint, that you get out of the school what you put in, I have been reading alot on this site about other experiences and how so many did not get in and thought it was a waste. I dont want to waste my time, I am college educated I have a BS in Biology from UofM Flint, and I really need a program that will lead to a job. Also, I want to make my application as ready as possible, so Im trying to find where to get my shots, immunizations, I tried thru the health dept, but they charge like 44 bucks for the Hep B vaccine series, and since im broke im on the Genesee County Health Plan. INfo please!!!!!!!!!!

    I am a nursing student at Baker. It is so, so, so competitive. I don't know if you were told this or not, but transferring credits lowers your total score for entrance into the program.

    My advice to you is to strive for perfection! When you do your presentations, do something that nobody else is doing, because I believe those instructors have an influence on who gets into the program, regardless of total score. And that oral communications class is NOT a blow-off class like some people think. At Baker, and I think this is true for any college, you will only get back what you put in.

    The HBVaccines are RECOMMENDED--not needed for program entry or program retainment. If you can't afford those, don't worry about them. Just make sure you have your titers done and get whatever vaccines you need (according to your titer results) and then get those titers re-read about 6 weeks later. KEEP SEVERAL copies of your results. Get your two-step TB test done AFTER you take your Kaplan exam.

    The nursing program at Baker is very tough to get into and I feel terrible for those who do not get in. But once you're in, it's a huge sigh of relief and a great sense of accomplishment.

    If you see a student in an all white uniform, go ahead and stop them to ask them questions about the program, we don't mind, just as long as we're not late for something. Good luck with your endeavors; I'm sure you'll do just fine.
