Sentara Nursing School???

  1. Hi Everyone! I am interested in the Sentara RN program. I already have a BS in Marketing, but have decided to switch career paths. The Sentara program seems to have a great reputation...just curious how difficult it is to be accepted. I am working on my last pre-req. now, bio 142 (doing pretty well so far, and the rest of my grades are pretty strong (w/ the exception of bio 141...i got a C). Even better, does anyone have any tips on increasing to possiblity of being accepted on the first try. Thanks!

    Sentara has a great RN program. I will be graduating in Oct of 2008 and I am not sure about how competitive it is now, but when I applied I was accepted within about a month of applying. I did well on the entrance exam and have a 3.85 gpa. The class sizes have grown tremendously so I know that it may be more competitive now. Our RN class started with around 90 RN students and the most recent starting class (August 2007) is full at a little over 100. Good luck to you! Sentara's program is great and you get allot of clinical experience.
