    Thank you! One more question what did you use to study for the entrance exam? Also, how are you doing in the program, I pray well you have been so helpful to me during my small journey. oh one more thing before I forget the program that starts in the fall is the day time program correct? I would prefer going in the day, than at night due to me having little ones at home.

    I used Review Guide For RN Pre-Entrance Exam. The ISBN is 978-0763762711. I think I still have that book along with the CD-ROM. I wil have to check. If so, I will be more than happy to give it to you. Make sure to keep an eye out for the exam dates also. The NLN is not offered as frequent as it should be. I think there are a couple of testing dates in September but not sure of any other dates after that. And yes....the Fall program is day time.

    Thanks Nikki! You are an angel. I called testing like an hour ago and she said they will have the test in september and december which has me spooked. I am taking micro and anp2 in the fall, now i freaking out thinking about when I will have study time for this entrance exam. But, if you still have it I will inbox you my phone number.

    Hey guys, I'm new around here and came searching for some info...this is definitely the right place I am applying in October for Spring admission into the program. I have completed Micro (got an A) and both A&Ps (got an A and a B), as well as Psych and Eng Comp 1. My overall GPA is a 3.7 and I'm taking the NLN next month. I'm REALLY hoping I have what it takes to get in this coming semester but I'm a little worried!

    Here is my biggest concern. I was planning on taking out student loans so that I can quit my full time job and focus solely on Nursing school. I just found out today the SWTCC doesn't accept ANY form of student loans, federal or private. That pretty much means I will have to continue working full time. I gotta pay the bills :-/ Is it possible to work full time and maintain a good GPA?? I'm really worried. Or are y'all aware of any other types of financial aid or scholarships available? I'm 28 with a family and a mortgage; it's not like I can just move back in with the parents, you know?!

    Hmmm... What about taking out personal loans? Probably not ideal but I'm pretty sure neither is working full time.. I'm not too sure about financial aid or scholarships but I would start looking into it ASAP!! We have a family & a mortgage too so I know how you feel. Plus my family is over 400 miles away

    When are you taking the NLN? I think I might take it next month. Probably on the 18th.

    I'm applying for Spring of 13 also. Just took the NLN last Sat. Wowzers!! Have most of my prereqs done, except for Micro. I've taken the class, but its past the 5 year currency limit so I have to take it again.

    @ellie sorry it took me so long to reply since I am the one whom started this thread but yes, I am taking both Micro and anp2 this fall and so far Micro has been great. I have not taken a test in anp 2 yet.

    How was the test I had a couple of peopl in my anp 2 class talk about it and it was almost discouraging to here them describe it

    pcarter2324, the test is challenging. The study guide is really helpful, but you will need to brush up on Physics. Practice on timing yourself too. I ran out of time on one of the sections and didn't do so well on that portion. I prayed, took deep breaths before taking the test and chewed on some gum. I find that I test better while chewing gum. Every little bit helps. Although my score wasn't the greatest, I did pass and I thank God for that. Good luck!
