  5. Has anyone took the Kaplan entrance nursing exam?
    I don't specifically remember having much in the way of conversions but there were quite a few fraction style questions and equations if I remember correctly. This was about two years ago though....

  7. Writing multiple times?
    And you don't think telling the students today that they aren't as prepared as you were is irritating. I would never make the comment that people taking boards in the years past had it any easier I...

    Nothing to excuse, you need to take this time to grieve if indeed you didn't pass. You should take some time to yourself to get past this and in a couple of weeks get back after it. You made it this...

  15. Baker College, Owosso
    I am a recent graduate from Baker and I think that if your talking about 10-15 hours per week then you should be fine. There are times it can be extremely rigorous but as long as you don't put things...

  19. What is your school's grading scale like?
    94-100=A 91-93=A- 89-90=B+ 87-88=B 84-86=B- I could keep going on down to an F but anything below an 84% is basically failing. You can have a low grade here and there on assignments and...
