Student Applying to NVCC For Nursing Program Starting in Fall 2013 - page 3

by Tricia328

Hi Everyone! I really wanted to begin a thread about NVCC's Nursing Program due to begin in Fall 2013 (Applications are due May 2013). I am starting my pre-reqs in January, because I have been in school elsewhere. I know it... Read More

    suziechu, Do you mean NCLEX, which is the licensing exam, as you are all done with TEAS once you take it and pass and then are accepted in the program? If you do mean NCLEX, do not worry about it, as the program does a lot to get you ready. I did take Kaplan after graduating and before I took the NCLEX last summer. Kaplan was good, but I did not really need to have bothered with it. I passes NCLEX the first time with tne minimum number of questions, as did a number of my classmates. I hope to go RN - MSN, as I already have a BS in another area, so I am just taking classes at GMU and will later apply to GMU and/or ODU. Congratulations on the baby. I am still single.

    summer03 - I had TEAS on the brain for some reason. Yes, I did mean NCLEX. I have heard that NVCC's program does truly prepare you, so that offers some relief! I am also considering GMU, mostly because it's local, but not tied down to that as I've heard other universities in VA offer online courses and flexibility.

    Thanks for your response! I'm biting my nails over here for another 2 months!

    I think you are a strong candidate and likely to get into NOVA, suzichu. ODU has a lot of its BSN and MSN courses online.

    Hi everyone! Wow I have been a bad OP and didn't know anyone has commented. What a relief to read everyone's kind words of encouragement!

    I just sent off my application yesterday, and I hope everything was included! I checked and rechecked it, but it felt so odd to just send it off. Finger's crossed!

    I took the NAS 161/162 route, and earned A's in both classes, as well as the other pre-reqs. On the TEAS, my three scores were 97%, 80% (in math, barely made it even though I studied! oh well, we all have our struggles ), and then a 93%.

    So, now we just wait I suppose! Yikes! So good to hear from all of you.

    HI everyone!

    My name is Jessica. I'm too a NOVA's Nursing applicant for traditional. I submitted my application on May 8th, and MEC counseling just informed me that my application was processed successfully. Yuppie!! I'm both happy and excited at the same time since I was so worried that I might have missed turning in something on my application. Now I feel much better! I can't wait for June to be here!!! I am just so anxious to receive my letter once and for all. Please, please, please. Hope I get in and become the best nurse

    Good luck everyone. I'll keep you posted !

    Hi Lina 123,
    I’m also an applicant for the traditional program. I called the nursing division yesterday, trying to find out more about our applications and they told me they had received about 200 applications! I asked if they knew how many will get in and they told me they don’t know yet, but I suppose that the same number of applicants as last year’s. They said they rank students on a point system based on GPA, TEAS scores. And, that acceptance letters will be sent out in a week or two from yesterday. I’m just praying that the wait is soon over for all of us.

    Good Luck,
    Jessica

    Jessi_o, THANK YOU for sharing the info you found out. It is nice to know that I am not alone in my suspense...

    Did they specify whether they will email or mail letters? I am just wondering if I should continue to obsessively stalk my mailman or my email

    Oh well, at least we all have each other to get our concerns out!

    Tricia328,
    Judging by what Iíve read about last yearís accepted, they said they send out both e-mail and mail letters, but I supposed they include all the package information in the mail letters such as orientation dates and background checks, etcÖ Itís nice to have someone else to share with you the same experience! And, I donít blame you on the stalking part; I do that every day ever since I sent my application on May.
    Hopefully this wait is over soon, and we all can start our nursing journey together J
    If you have more questions, please feel free to ask. I know some of this information because Iíve read the posts of last yearís applicants, Class 2012.
    Take care,
    Jessica
