has anyone applied or attended J. Everett Light IN

U.S.A. Indiana


Hi everyone, I could use some help. I have applied to the J. everett light LPN program in Indiana for Jan.2011. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what kind of teas scores they accept, I have already taken it twice and cannot retake again. I was wondering if I dont get accepted what would be the best thing to do while waiting to apply again. I am worried because of student loans, I withdrew from a program to enter nursing so I have to get back in school before April 2011!! I hope they accept me and I should know soon, but I need a back-up plan to continue school, and I want to stay with LPN because it's what I really want. This school doesn't require any pre-req's either just your teas score, which mine wasn't great but it was passing. Please any help or advice.:confused:

Does anyone know how long the application process takes at J. Everett Light? I passed the TEAS and submitted all of my information. They said that the director would contact me for an interview but how long is the wait? I wonder if I should have taken the TEAS again to score higher? (The program starts in January). Any JEL students or graduates out there? Thanks in advance for your help...

Hi, I dont remeber how long it took to get to the interview but I wouldn't worry, I had to take the TEAS twice and still got in, plus they need at least 40 students per class. I'm in second semester and I can tell you it's not an easy program. We started with 32 and we are down to 11 students and still a semester to go. So be prepared to work your but off! And good Luck! I'll be seeing you there!

Moved to IN Nursing Programs forum for better response.

Thanks nicoleray! Congratulations on staying with the program. I wish someone could tell me if my score was too low and I should re-take the TEAS. It was passing...English sections were high (98 and 100), science was avg, math was low bc I ran out of time and left some unanswered. I hope to hear from them in the next week but they don't even give you a timeline. I was told that the first semester is the 'weeding out' period but sounds like that continues throughout the program. Are you driving very far for clinicals? I have heard that the program is strong and they have great placement. I have been in several hospitals lately because of my parents and both ER nurses were LPN grads from JEL as was a surgical nurse who went on to RN. Good luck to you and hang in there...you can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

Hi again- I received my official acceptance into the January program. I am so excited but also nervous. It sounds like this is an EXTREMELY challenging accelerated program. Are you in a study group? Was 1st semester harder than 2nd? What is a typical day for you right now? I have 2 kids and am trying to plan ahead as much as possible. Where do you do your clinicals? I am new to the site so I hope I am not asking anything that is not allowed...just super curious and excited. Thanks

Hi! I'm trying to get into the Jan 2013 class. Can you guys tell me a little more about the your experience and where the clinical"s are? I know some are at St. Vincent and Hooverwood. Also what books are you using? Are they the same as Ivy Techs? Thanks.
