    I'm 26 and have been out of High School since 2003, so they did not need my GPAs. But my scores on the PSB were all pretty high (high 90s) except for the science. I took the science twice to see if I could get a better score the second time around.

    I mailed my letter requesting my entrance exam date on Jan 7th. I got a confirmation email letting me know I was okay to take my exam on the day I chose (Jan 21st). I downloaded "Barron's Nursing School Entrance Exams" on my kindle and studied for about a week. The exam is EXACTLY like the practice test they have on the PSB website and takes about 1 1/2-2 hours:

    I took my test (PSB) on Jan 21st and found out my results by letter on Feb 1st. I handed out my reference letters in advance and I also requested my transcripts before I got my scores from the PSB back. I was just really anxious about things not getting sent in so I wanted to get a head start on it. I sent in my application the day I got my scores back and I got a phone call regarding my application. I have prior nursing school experience so they wanted to see if I would like to start over again or test out of "Foundations". I opted to take it to take is as a refresher. I got my actual letter in the mail today saying I was accepted and to send in a $200 confirmation fee.


    I am beyond happy to get started. I have a very good feeling about their program.
    If you guys have any more questions, I'd be happy to help !
    Good luck!
