    Congratulations to all of you who have been accepted!!!!! I too have been waiting for what seemed like an eternity for THE letter. I'd applied last semester for Fall '06 entry but ended up as an alternate. No one dropped so I had to wait a few more months. Finally got was I was waiting for in the mail a few days ago, I am sooooo glad that I can now start buying my supplies and such, and strangely I am anxiously awaiting to begin my 5 semester journey through bootcamp!!!

    Funny enough, I am also eagerly anticipating the toughest and perhaps most stressful next 2 years of my life too!
    I am going to call my school to get the supplies list and also the nursing book lists to get an early start with my reading over the holidays.

    At my CC, it consists of: overall GPA, required course (core) GPA, NET test scores, In district status, points for A&P 1 & 2, and Micro GPA, current enrollment at the CC. These are all added up to give you your points. Then they compile the list, have a meeting to hashout the ties and whatnot, then send out the letters. Not all schools go by a point system, or the same type so check at your school to see what they include. (the local BSN college point system is slightly different than ours)

    You need to check with the specific program you are interested in b/c they all have different requirements and/or points systems, but here is an example of what my school requires:

    High School Diploma: 3.0 GPA, Chemistry, Biology, Algebra
    OR college level equivalent coursework.

    plus points given for the following:
    -previous college degree
    -community service
    -previous healthcare experience
    -co-req courses completed w/ C+ or better:
    A&P I & II, Micro, ENG comp 1+2, sociology, psychology, dev. psychology
    (with extra points given for higher letter grade earned)

    My class, beginning Jan 2007, was the last class admitted to the program before the point system was implemented. I had met all the above criteria, with the exception of previous health care experience.
    Good Luck Diamond.

    I frequent this board and love the advice and support. I want to get more involved with posting. I got my letter today. I'm in!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not too surprised as I was told in my interview "see you in January" but I have to say, I am a little freaked. I guess it's because I feel like I have finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up (I'm 36) and that dream is now going to become reality. Maybe overwhelmed is a little better emotion. Anyone else have that feeling. Good luck to those still waiting.

    I feel the exact same way. I told my husband that when my letter came I felt really relieved, but now I am terrified. I said the same thing about finally figuring out what I wanted to do when I grew up and now it is starting and it a little overwhelming. Like my life is about to totally change(in a good way) but still change is hard. I am scared about everything: will I be able to get through this, will I(we) survive financially, am I going to be a good nurse? I am also so excited, I feel blessed that I have this opportunity. Last year I turned my life upside down in order to go back to school. I quite my job and took out a ton of student loans in order to help support my family while I was in school. I put all my eggs in one basket and banked on getting into nursing school. So far everything is going as planned(except one little hiccup in the application period that added a semester onto my time in school), and I am so thrilled it is all working out.
