@JenSande  oh ok thats good to know,  Do you have additional information? Becky mentioned that we would know by sept or so if we are accepted. However, she mentioned this is the first year they’re utilizing the scoring rubric. I want to call and ask more, but I feel at this point I am anxious.

Hi  janelane213 and  JenSande, 

I have been following your posts for this thread. I have also applied to Hutch in July for next years LPN to RN online program. I mailed my application in the last week of July. I had to wait because I did my last prerequisite during the summer semester.  

I haven't been in contact with Becky, since taking the Kaplan. Man was the science part of that hard. I haven't seen the rubric, but would love to if either one of you would mind passing it along to me. 

I live near Atlanta, Georgia so I'm also an out of state applicant. Hoping that doesn't make a difference. My total overall score on the Kaplan was 84%. Which I don't think is that great, but it'll have to do. 

Hoping we all get in. Best of luck. 

My email is    nurse397@aol.com

@nurse397 I honestly thought the writing was the most difficult and the science was one of the easier sections. Apparently I just confused myself because everyone else seems to agree the science was the worst. I wouldn’t stress about an 84 overall. If you’ve got good grades in the prereq courses I think you’re in good shape. I also don’t think it matters if you’re in state or out of state. Points are assigned purely on  prereq grades and Kaplan scores.

Thanks JenSande. My GPA on my prerequisites is 3.45. I took the Kaplan twice, the first time I didn't do very well. Especially on the writing, but studied like crazy then took it again and greatly improved. I watched quite a few things on youtube on reading and the writing. It really helped. The Kaplan prep book was completely useless except for the reading comprehension, but I could've gotten the same information another way without buying the book. 

Thank you for the information. Wish we didn't have to wait so long before we find out if we made it or not.

@nurse397 Prereqs the only prereqs they look at are A & P, Eng Comp I, Psychology, H G & D, Sociology/Nutrition, Public Speaking, Pathophysiology, and Microbiology. If you have a 3.45 in those and an 84 on Kaplan I’d bet your chances are pretty good. Don’t stress the wait. It’s that way for all the Kansas programs. They never admit until the application period is closed.

JenSande,

I got the rubric from Becky today. My total score is 34.5. Now it's just a waiting game. Fingers crossed and prayers said. Good luck to you too.

I emailed Becky at Hutchinson and she was kind enough to let me know that it would take all of September to process the applications, so letters would more than likely be sent out around the first part of October.
