Anyone have any knowledge about NAU nursing? - page 2

I didn't receive any feedback from the main forum, so I thought I'd check here. I just applied to NAU Accelerated BSN program. I have a 3.9 GPA, but scored a 79 on the Kaplan. The testing center... Read More

    I agree with you about the ADN. My wife went that way and had no problem finding work but if she wants to move up she needs to get a BSN first. We also looked into moving out of state and some areas seem very focused on what degree you hold. My plan B is a ADN program that I wouldn't need to move for but I this program is such a great opportunity I will be disappointed if I don't get in.

    It sounds like you have a strong application. I'm sure having two semesters of nursing school already is going to be a great advantage. Thanks for posting and good luck!

    Schershmelchnac, how is Pathophysiology through RIO?

    I'm going to start at the end of feb. I'm hoping there will be a lot of overlap with the pathology in my nursing 2 class now because I'm already feeling pretty swamped!

    schermelchnac, you are insane! I can't believe you are doing all this, while going to nursing school. I am very impressed! I start next week, so I will let you know how it goes. If you are accepted to NAU(which I'm sure you will be), will you drop immediately? Seems like that would be the easiest course of action and then Pathophysiology will be a cakewalk.

    I've been debating whether or not to drop. I think i want to stick it out if possible. At lest I'm not working much at all right now and I don't have kids so that makes it easier. I have an OR and an ICU rotation late in the semester that I want to be able to do. I have financial aid so if i drop before a certain date, i think march 26 I have to pay some back. I guess I'll see how it's going when/if I get in. I'm kinda worried about pathophys... Let me know when you start

    what did you guys use to study for the Kaplan?
  8. by   adbnau
    I used the Kaplan study guide but I don't recommend it. Math was basic fractions and ratios. The science was all A&P, make sure you know the systems and how they work. The other sections were mostly about identifying what's wrong with a sentence and understanding a the structure or meaning of a passage.

    Can someone help out? I am going to take the Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam at NAU next week Tues and I need to study now. All of the books are out at the library and so I am just online trying to get some help.
    I might wait for the following week but I need some material to study.
