    touro in Brooklyn is another associate degree program. they have about 35 this year in their first level. BI is a good choice but is also competitive. they receive about 900 applicants per year for 150 spots, on average. if you have any q's about BI i might be able to help you.

    All of the cuny colleges and private colleges are competitive. If possible try and take the pre req courses one at a time to better your chances of getting a good grade. You also have to take the nln entrance exam and get a good score. I go to Laguardia and the cut Off for RN program is around 3.8 Our Lpn is around 3.4

    Yes and sometimes even a 3.8 get rejected because some people have a 3.84 or 3.86 you get what I'm saying? Nursing is a very competitive major, seems like everyone is interested in nursing.

    Ouch i dont think ill make the cut then. I didnt realize laguardia took chemistry as a pre req. Most places i looked at, they look at your psych, english, ap1, and sociology. Do you know anything about schools being nationally credited or not?

    i'm actually in my last semester before my capstone course. its in manhattan, chelsea area. its a great school, the faculty are excellent come from many dif areas of nursing. its a adn program affiliated with PACE university. science and liberal art credits come through them. you can actually come in with 0 prior credits to the program. (if thats done they usually recommend the 3 year track-1 year of arts and sciences the 2 years of nursing). for applying, they want NLN scores if i recall correctly above 55th percentile, and gpa above 2.7 i believe. i came in with a 98th percentile NLN and GPA over 3.7 from HS (if not higher). they do have interviews-not all schools do. good news is if you do get an interview, its looking good. when you apply an entire committee looks at your portfolio and personal essay. there are some other requirements-like HS level chem, bio, math or one semester of college level of each. the website is Phillips Beth Israel School of Nursing:.

    this is just a quick over-view of stuff i remember from when i was applying and from open houses i helped host in the past months. if you have specific questions, i'll be glad to answer those too
