Tn tech covington lpn students how did you get in.

  1. Hi all, I have heard several rumors as to how ppl got in the lpn program. I would like to hear from aybody who has gone to this school I am freaking out about this entrance test. I lot of ppl tell me dont worry this school is very easy to get into. Others tell me being a cna which I am not helped them get in. I am a medical assistant I wonder does it count for anything. Please help I am a ball of nerves I want this so bad.

    I wouldn't call it extremely easy to get in, nor is it easy once you are in, but it certainly can be done - I started in September. Your number one priority should be scoring as high as possible on the COMPASS exam. It appears that most of the admissions weight is given to your COMPASS score. Having medical background could help, but there are plenty of us in the class with no medical experience at all.

    For my class, around 150 people applied (I think...), about 50 were interviewed (the top COMPASS scores), and 24 were admitted. So, study hard for the COMPASS!
