i'm currently at qcc doing pre-reqs. so far the 4 courses that qcc looks at is sociology, ap1, english and psych. i have a A,B,A-,C respectively making my gpa a 3.2 ish. Do you think thats enough to get in? How was the nln exam? Thanks for the help so far
your welcome. glad i can share
so i'll start with the NLN. its like the sat but also has sciences-basic bio, chem, physics, might of been some earth science too. math, reading comprehension, grammar etc.. i studied from the NLN book, "the review guide for the RN pre-entrance exam". i studied that for 2 months in advance. some places require the TEAS though. taking the nln was stressful because the time for each section is limited. some ppl have suggested getting a book on test strategy skills to help with that. others say take refresher courses or the like if you need help with certain areas. i heard the regent exam books are also good. don't know if that's true; i did not take regents
so all the courses you already took are ones required for BI as co-reqs. some i took at BI through pace, some i transferred in from HS AP classes and others i clepped. some students take every thing elsewhere and just do the nursing in BI (A&P I and II and Micro are all taught by the same prof and is very challenging). your GPA is good but bi doesn't look at only that which is beneficial. they believe in looking at the whole person applying not just the academics.
i hope this is clear. and if you have any more q's, i'll try to anser
