Bellevue College 2012 hopefuls - page 7

Hello everyone, I have just applied to Bellevue College for Fall 2012/Winter 2013 and I just want to hear from anyone who has also applied there. What are your TEAS scores? Do you guys know when... Read More

    Oh, ok. Thanks so much Fishgirl, you've been so immensely helpful! At first I was freaking out because I didn't remember them talking about the interviews and E-writes when I went to an information session at the beginning of this year. I thought that they just changed it for 2012 and I was scared of these new changes. Alright, I can stop freaking out now

    let's just keep playing the waiting game :/

    well, i'm kind of freaking out about the E-Write test, there are no practice tests for that........and it has been a long time since I have written an essay

    So, I just got off the phone with Bellevue's assessment office regarding the E-write and they did say that in order to be in the program we must score an 8 out of 12 from the e-write test. However, the person that I spoke with said that we do not/ cannot really prepare for the e-write but that we should not worry because it is not a very hard test (she even said that it's not nearly as hard as the TEAS). She went on to say that they are making people take the E-write test because they have been finding out that people who got into the nursing program do not know how to write essays and presentations well enough and they are hoping to weed out those people from entering the program.

    Hopefully this bit of info helps

    Hi everyone - I'm also playing the waiting game - glad to have found people to commiserate with! I got a 92.7 on my TEAS, but only after spending a TON of time preparing with the study guide and practice tests. I e-mailed the office with questions about the E-write and was assured that qualified applicants would be contacted in the spring to take it. Has anyone on here done their CNA training with Kamanga? I was going to try A-plus in Bellevue, but it looks like they don't have a weekend option anymore. Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts they would like to share about the program?

    Best of luck to everyone - hopefully we get our news soon!!

    Well it's April 1st! Hopefully we won't have to wait much longer. Great job on your TEAS, hereshoping. I need to do the CNA training as well, so I'm interested to know where I should go for that too.

    Last year it wasn't until April 21 or 22nd that the letters went out! That's such a long wait!

    Does anyone know how people will be contacted to schedule the E-Write test? Phone, email, snail mail?
  8. by   Fishgirl1983
    I have no idea how we will be contacted for the E-Write. I am still not sure if that letter will come out before or after the actual acceptance is April and we haven't received anything in regards to that test, or at least I haven't.

    If you look at last years discussion board you see that they didn't hear back until the 21 or 22 of April.

    Hello everyone!

    I hope that everyone's keeping their cool as we all wait for news from Bellevue (although I do have to admit that I am just becoming a nervous wreck day by day as I check my mailbox ).

    I just want to check in regarding taking Intercultural Communications, since it is a class that we have to take before we graduate from the nursing program. Is there anyone who will betaking this class this coming summer? And for those who have taken it before: is it a hard class? Thanks guys

    I took Intercultural Communications online a while back. It was a piece of cake. I put little effort into the class, and still got an A. As long as you turn in the assignments on time, you'll be fine.
  12. by   Fishgirl1983
    Yup, very easy class. I took it years ago and I don't remember putting in a lot of work into it at all. We did have to do presentations in front of the class, but that is the only thing we had to do.
  13. by   downton
    I would definitely take it online. Make sure you buy the textbook though, as everything comes straight from it. I'm sure you could get by without it, as there were powerpoint presentations, but I remember certain test questions coming from the book.
