bp2244,

I can't recall your history. Have you completed prereq's? did you apply to LICHSON? which program are you applying to? Did you score less than 55% on science? If you did, I wouldn't be to concerned. I believe students who are fresh out of high school were more prepared for the science section of the test. I know I haven't covered earth science or biology in more than 20 years.

Hi everyone,

I am new to this site and I wish you all much success. I too am playing the waiting game and to say the truth it is driving me crazy. I have emailed Ms. Gallo just to find out more or less when I may hear back and nothing. My friend has already had an interview and from what she told me it went really well. I know she got in, she applied to the evening program, which by the way they are revamping. We both took the NLN on the 6th of April and got a composite score of 128 AD 89 All 92. I am realllllllllllllllllllyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy nervous and I would love to get in I applied for the day program but I am flexible. I also applied to Adelphi and I am playing the waiting game there too. ugh!!!!!!!!

I have a bachelor's degree. I did apply to LICHSON, but BI is my top choice for obvious reasons. I'm applying to the 2-yr traditional program. I did score a 46 on science, which puts me in the average range. I'm not too concerned on the science. I have to admit, I didn't study for the NLN. I should have. I regret it, but it just didn't happen. I know I could have done so much better and that sucks. I know what you mean about biology. For me, that was high school, 10 years ago. Aughhhh. my HS reunion is THIS summer. Where does the time go?

Vill0912 - welcome to the waiting pool. LOL.

Annabella,

Welcome to the thread. I also have a friend whom I took the NLN with. An interview was scheduled for her the day after the school received her scores. I'm sure she'll be accepted, I think it would be great to proceed through the program with a friend....I wish you two the best of luck.

Hi Anabella, I second honeycutts and bp2244 in welcoming you to this thread. The waiting is nerve-wracking. You and I have the same nln scores-128, 89%ad, but mine say 90% all. I took my test on april 8th, but just finished handing them all my papers last week. I hope we hear something soon..................:)

On their website, they show the curriculum for two-year students who haven't taken the liberal arts courses so it seems that it is possible. Also, it is about 4 to 5 courses a semester which is about average in a normal college.

I'm collecting up resources and references now to study in the moment so I can get ahead a little. I don't think it should be too bad, especially since I have my mother who went to nursing school and has been a nurse for 26 years now, so she's also a great resource. :)

Nursefor2011,

Of course you must do what you consider right for you. I just want to encourage you to think of the challenges of carrying 17 credits in a nursing program. 17 credits in a normal college setting is difficult. A responsible college advisor would likely advise against a freshman taking 17 credits. As a matter of fact, the college I'm attending at this time doesn't allow freshman students to take more than 13 credits. Keep in mind (which you're probably aware of since your mother is a nurse), nursing school is significantly more demanding than a regular college. I recall the Dean mentioning students who thought they could complete the program with no prereq's within 2 years. She said, the majority of the students either failed or dropped out of the program.

Obviously, there are exceptions to the rule and you could very well be an exception, so good luck to you and your decision.

Nurse2011,

Thinking that taking 17 credits in Nursing school, "shouldn't be too bad," suggests you may be in for a big surprise this fall. Best of luck :specs:.

I think it is possible for Nursefor2011 to do a 2yr traditional. I know a graduate of BI who made it. I think she was 16 when she started the nursing program. Initially she was offered a 3yr program, but she challenged herself to complete the program in 2yrs. She survived and graduated cum laude. She devoted a lot of time and showed a lot of commitment in studying. But then it all depends on the individual. You have to weigh things and know your strength and weaknesses. Also try to see the situation say one or 2 semesters from now. Anyhow goodluck with your decision.

I know that nursing school is a challenge, and will definitely be much harder than high school and traditional college, but I am willing to take the risk because I believe that I might be able to do it.

My mother has a co-worker who recently graduated Phillips Beth Israel, and she had failed one of her nursing courses in the first year of the traditional 2 year program, so she was put in the three-year program by default (She wasn't allowed to take anymore nursing courses until she completed that one, and spent her first year finishing her liberal arts courses). I'm not saying I'm not going to try. Plus, if a two-year program for a student with no liberal arts is not possible, why would they offer it? I'm definitely not taking this lightly.

I applied for the two year program, but the person who interviewed me said that she was going to strongly recommend me for the three year option because I'm young and I don't have any liberal arts courses. :(

So I'm afraid that I'll be accepted, but into a program I don't want.

nursefor2011-

Just a little insight as to the makeup of the incoming classes for the 2- and 3-yr options. I interviewed with PBISON 4 wks ago - and when I asked the interviewer about the makeup and background of the incoming classes, they mentioned that the 2-yr program was comprised of mostly working professionals who are considering a career transition - and that the average age of the incoming student is 27-28... an interesting side note - they had mentioned that there were a lot of MBA's making a transition from business and finance to nursing.

In any case, best of luck to you and everyone else!
