    I was put on alternate for fall 2011. They emailed me a month later saying I got in. This was about 6 weeks before the start of the fall semester btw. I had 24 hours to fax or drop off my intent form, which I did. My teas test was scheduled like 10 days after, at their campus.

    What I was told about the selection process is that there is a "Cut-Off" score for all the applicants. Then they draw randomly from those who made the cut.
    As for the alternates, I dont know how they prioritize that. I just know they add the alternates when the people who got in declines the spot.

    CokeMachine About how many alternates were chosen for your class? I just wanna know if i have a chance of making it in. BTW how is the program going for you?

    I went to take the Teas Test on campus after I heard that I got in from an alternate spot. I was there with the rest of the alternates who made it and there were about 20 of us.

    Currently finishing up 3rd semester. Its probably been the toughest semester so far. A lot of the LVN's who joined up this semester are struggling on the Theory/lecture portion. More than a handful of people dropped already this semester for whatever reason (dosage, theory test)

    I plan on it, but I don't want to do anything thats going to jeopardize my grades. Did u get the packet as well? Is there lots to do?

    I don't want my grades dropping because of work either....the packet includes the health requirements we need to complete (which is quite a few), the website from where to order the uniforms from, we need to purchase professional liability insurance, we also need to order some test or study guides from ati (its pricey). It also includes the list of books we need to purchase. Its quite a handful but we will be able to manage.
