Has anyone taken the entrance exam? What was your score and are you applying for May/June 2020 at the Reno campus?

Yes ma’am! I am anxiously waiting by my phone. I got a 282/300, so a 94% overall. You?

I spoke the school yesterday and they’ll start making calls next week! There have been a few setbacks. So you can breathe a little easier knowing that ?

Actually they called this morning and I’m in! ? I’m guessing that means you are too!

Have anyone heard back from Reno Carrington for financial and registration to start the RN program this year. School starts next month and I haven't received any call?

Are you in night classes? If so, you should be contacted soon! Day class is done now.

Are talking about study books for the entrance exam? If so, the Kaplan Nursing Entrance 2020 book is a great one. The writing portion has the same format as the entrance exam. I also used several different nursing entrance books such as TEAS study guide/books along with grammar books (Barron's grammar).

Math: You just need to know your basic math - word problems, fractions, decimals. Be familiar with it.

0.1 = to what %?

55 divide by 5 = ?

1/4 of 25 = ?

English Reading/writing: Know your grammars, punctuations, commas, misspelled words, and will ask you to define words.

Science: Know how the body system works such as blood, heart, mitosis, etc.

Hi all! For those currently in the program what does the schedule look like? I thought I saw that its Monday-Friday for only a few hours starting out. Is this still the same with all the COVID stuff? I'm an hour and a half drive from the Reno campus so just trying to get all the info I can. I have an information session on Thursday but I'm a little too excited and impatient. Thanks in advance!
