Well peers I've done it; I submitted my application to a nursing program today. I've been a member on this thread for about two years. I've read countless threads about people who have gone down this same road. Oh how I've wanted... Read More

    XFactor, my plan is almost exactly like yours! I'm applying to the ADN program at my community college as well, and if I don't get in, plan to finish up the pre-requisites the 2nd degree BSN program requires for admission. I'd thought about applying for it for Fall 2013, but my GPA isn't high enough to get in. The 2nd degree BSN only takes into account GPA, whereas the ADN program takes into account if you have a bachelor's degree already first, followed by Associates, then (if you don't have a degree) the number of hours you have completed, THEN GPA. They also take into account your pre-req only GPA (3.769) and your NLN PAX-RN score (155 total score, 99th percentile). I'm hoping that my degree, NLN score and pre-req GPA are enough to get me in because the GPA from my bachelor's degree isn't exactly spectacular!!!
    Good luck, and I hope you get into the program you want!

    I have a question. Do nursing schools take into account the number of hours you have already completed??? I have seen more than one person mention this. If that's the case, i am worried because I have 17 hours left that I am taking this semester! Though they are my last classes, it is still 17 hours! What if other applicants have fewer???

    I am taking my TEAS test on Jan 18th and then I submit my application after that. It's so nerve racking! I have all A's thus far and need A's in my A&P 2 and PSYC 101 this semester for a good shot. Our apps are due by April 1st and then they will start sending out letters the last week of May or first week of June after all grades are in from spring semester. I'm happy that I can apply while still doing my pre req's because it will definitely keep my mind off of it as I am busting my buns for the A's I need. We also go on a pointed system. Fingers crossed and good luck to everyone!!!

    Brenay, I think it depends on the program. I know that the ADN program at my school separates applicants by whether they have already earned bachelor's degrees, associates degrees, 30+ hours and then 15+ hours. As long as you've already completed or are working on your pre-requisites when you applied, you should be fine.

    So my schedule finally got sorted out, and I'm no longer taking General Biology and Lab this semester (thank god cause it's not even a pre-req for my program), and I got placed into Microbiology. So my final schedule is now College Algebra, English Comp II, Psych of Development, Biomedical Ethics, A&P I, and Microbiology. Whew. Ready to start this semester and get it over with!

    I take my Teas V on this Tuesaday and will be turning in my app the same day I hope. I won't find out my acceptance until May once I have completed Pharm, which is prereq for my ASN. Once you pass Pharm you are for sure IN! But I wont start the actual program until Fall 2013.

    Wow, X_factor. Me and you both have quite a load. Or as i like to call it....overload. LOL! We can and we will do it though! General Biology isn't a pre req for your program? It is for mine. Micro, Chem, General Bio, A&P 1, and A&P 2 are the requirements. At least we will be busy this semester!
