Has anyone had any luck with applying at National University for their nursing program? I applied back in Oct 06 and have been waiting to hear from them. They are supposed to notify in 3 months. I... Read More

    Thanks Twighlight, I just sent my application in today, I spoke to my advisor and he said they should be finished by next week evaluating my transcripts. I hope we both get in too! It would be the highlight of my year!!!

    Oh wow!! How exciting! I am sure you will be prepared for October!! I hope I get pushed up too lol! What did you get on your TEAS exam if you don't mind me asking? I am so excited for you!!
    Don't mind you asking at all, sorry it takes me so long to respond! I got an 87% on the TEAS. Thanks! I am excited too. Petrified, but excited

    Wow! 87%! That is great! Now I know what ballpark I should aim for since our prerequisite GPA is pretty similar. Thank you! You must have so many emotions running through you right now about starting soon! Don't worry, I am sure you will do great!! So excited for you!!

    87%, that's a pretty good score Chesh...

    Twilight, how's you TEAS review coming along?

    Oh it's going... Haven't really studied too much but I plan to do more so in the next week. I am kind of just waiting to see if I passed my ILR credit by exam first because if I didn't, I would have to take to the actual class and won't be able to apply since it is a prerequisite. I am hoping I did though! :icon_roll I think once I find out I passed, I will feel more up to studying for the TEAS. How about you?

    Is it? I didn't really have anything much to compare it to! I Googled it a bunch of times, trying to gauge how well I did. That's actually how I found this website :wink2: I'd really like to know how I did on the essay, though I guess it doesn't matter at this point. I'm just curious.

    Twilight - I know I've said it before, but REALLY study your chemistry and physical/earth science. The Reading section was INCREDIBLY simple. The math was pretty tame (and not because I'm some super math genius either, I promise!) and the English was a little tricky. But the science portion was really unexpected, in my opinion. The chemistry stuff was basic, it just so happens I have always sucked at chemistry! Physical science was also pretty basic, but make sure you know how to figure acceleration, force, velocity and whatnot. But some of the Earth science questions were on things I've never known - like phases of the moon, the Earth's layers, rock types and mountain formations. It sound pretty easy, but I guess those are things I just never managed to pick up along the way!

    Wow cheshcat! Thanks for all the advice!! I really appreciate it! Did you find the ATI study guide helpful at all? I have that and the Kaplan study guide too! I am going to focus on the basic sciences then! Thanks again!!

    They did my evaluation and apparently my Sociology class I took at CSUSM doesn't transfer or waiver. So I have to take it next month meaning I wont make the August 22 deadline! Good Luck to everyone applying. Im hopefully going to apply for the November Deadline. Sooo much waiting .

    Oh Murse, I am so sorry. I know exactly what you are going through. I had a bad adviser at National and she never told me that I could have taken an ILR credit by exam since I already had a full load of classes I was working on at Palomar. Because of that, I missed the deadline for the January cohort. Don't worry, your time will come! I believe everything happens for a reason! You never know, you might get pushed up into the April cohort!!!

    I have applied to the absn program at the LA campus, and I am just waiting for my verdict. I wanted to know what you guys think my chances are of getting in...
    GPA sciences/stats: 3.75
    TEAS: 88.2
    essay: who knows, it was a semi coherent 1.5 pages, but kinda jumbled... :-/

    Any opinions would be greatly appreciated Thanks!

    Hey Michelle! Welcome! All of your scores look top tier to me! I am sure that you will get in!! What was your essay question if you don't mind me asking? Was it something like "Why do you want to go to National and what are your professional goals?" Anyhoo, I wouldn't worry, all you have to do now is wait to get your acceptance email! Good luck to you in Nursing School!

    Thanks for responding! For the essay, the question was:
    "Aside from wanting to 'help people', what is your motivation for entering the nursing profession?"
    and then another girl who was there said it was her second time doing the essay and her first question was
    "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?"
    So basically, exactly what you said: why you want to go to nursing school and your professional goals. Let me know if you have any other questions
