Greetings from West TN! If chatt state is anything like jackson state I'm sure your going against about 300 people for about 90 spots. The good news is if you are picked as an alternate quite a few people fail their drug test and/or background checks. I chose to transfer to Union University where they don't have a application process for the nursing school. Once you complete your pre-reqs you just apply to transition into the clinical program! It is alot less stressful and I will have a BSN instead of an ASN and it will only take me 1 semester longer than Jax state would have. So if you have the ability to move look into union if you aren't accepted into chatt state. Yes it is a private university but they throw money at you so you come to their school.
