Does anybody know what the next step is for amnesty students in regards to taking the NCLEX?

Im wondering if you took your NCLEX yet or have started the process of taking the NCLEX ? I am an amnesty student from 2006 and just wondering what the next step is

am new here hope someone can answer a some questions i have ill start by saying that am currently attending to daley college taking my pre- reqs for RN . well i only took chemistry, biology 121, and math 118 until february is the deadline to apply to the nursing program. i dont know if i should apply for the LPN first then trasnfer to the RN and that way ill have a jumps start of what nursing really is.

now i want to know if those classes i mention above are the only ones i need to apply or do i still have to take bio 226, 227. Ihave a GPA 3.0 but not sure if that will be good enough to apply. what happens after that? am i getting interview by someone or just by looking at GPA letters of recomdations will be all????

CAN SOMEONE GIVE SO FEEDBACK :)

ConSola26: For amnesty students, My advice is please contact your director of nursing. He/ She should be able to tell you the next step. Also try to get in touch with other amnesty students.

Logitech10: I believe that you can apply for RN with the classes you have already taken. You also need to take Micro biology with the 2 Anatomy classes. I'm not sure if there are any additional requirements. I perfer going straight to the RN program, saves time reapplying again. My suggestion is try to complete all your pre- reqs before you start ANY nursing program. Because nursing is very tough and requires a lot. Another food for thought, Start practicing NCLEX style questions when ever you have time.

does anyone know if they officially got rid of the hesi at daley college.

I just want to say a great big thank you for whoever were the students who did this whole HESI amnesty ! If it werent for you I would not be celebrating passing my NCLEX and going on to work as a nurse that I wanted to do 4 years ago ! Thanks to you I was able to go on and graduate from Daley , take my reviews and go on to take NCLEX and pass ! :bowingpur:yeah:I waited 4 years for something to happen, gave up any hope and went on to start another nursing program to try all over again to achieve becoming a nurse and because of you I was able to not continue on and now become a nurse and finally start my career.

I wish I knew who you were so I could thank you personally. Thank you thank you thank you for fighting and may god bless you and wonderful wonderful kharma come your way !

HI! I just applied at Daley's program, and will be applying to Truman and MXC, and have already applied to Wright. I am not sure if this matters but -I JUST SIGNED THE PETITION :yeah:Every little counts and I'm hoping for a change as well. :p

Hello TrNrsngStdnt, if you read the posts from pages 8 through 10 of this thread, even a few earlier pages than 8, you'll see how the City Colleges of Chicago were misusing the HESI exam to withhold nursing degrees from students that met the requirements of nursing school. And by withholding their degree, they couldn't sit for the NCLEX-RN which meant they couldn't become nurses. You should really read it, because the group that fought to end this did a fantastic job. Her's the link:

Let Us Change the City Colleges of Chicago Academic Policy for the Nursing Program Petition

GRETCH26: Thanks for posting our petition and passing it on. I thank Rico from our group for making that. Well we wont be needing it now!!!!

PRETTYSMART,

Can you tell me who I can contact about this? I am in the Truman class of 2011, and we are experiencing the same thing. I supported you guys in your journey, and helped pass the word about what was happening. I knew that one way or another this would affect me too because I signed the same contract you guys did. Truman is now incorporating HESI to account for a percentage of our grade. Meaning that is you pass all the exams that your professor gives you, and you are a borderline student, scoring low on your HESI would bring your average down, and as a result, you do not get to move on in the program. Where can I find the research that you guys obtained? I could really use the help to help my class that is slowly dwindling down to scarce numbers!! thank you

Anyone here that goes to DAILEY or TRUMAN or MALCOLM X that is against the policy and all the changes that are being made in the middle of our program?!?!? I find this ludicrous!!! I would hope the Chancellor does not want a repeat of what happened last year. So any one interested in voicing their opinions and concerns on the inconsistencies within the program? We need to band together so we could come up with a plan/proposal, and be organized about what we think should be happening with in our schools.... I think somewhere along the line these people forgot they all have jobs because of us. We are paying for these services. And I for one am an unsatisfied customer

Go to the website or google reinventing CCC. You will be surprised at the changes the chancellor is trying to make for THE STUDENT!!! The ones that really matter in this program. Let's help our fellow classmates who were left behind. Those who failed the HESI and are no longer to move on in the program.... This is not right!!! You still have a couple of weeks to fight this. You have my support! I hope others will join and support to help the people who deserve to be in school, get back in and get their degrees. I lost a lot of friends this semester. If theres anything I can do to help, you can count on me

what kind of changes are coming for Nursing program?

According to studies, out of all the students that enroll in a program, only 7% actually graduate!!! ***!?!? 7%? After all that tine and money invested, less than half those students complete a program. The Chancellor is investigating to figure out what is going on?? Is it the students? Is it the teachers? Is it a combination of the two things? Whatever it is, it needs to be fixed. And who better to help resolve these issues than the students who are enrolled in these programs

so the chancellor is on the side of the students?

Yup!!! Pretty sweet huh?? Google "reinventing ccc" and check out what she's trying to do. You'll be pleasantly surprised. =)

i tried reading it. there is no info about on reinventing nursing program. could you give me a link ? thanks

It's not directly speaking of the NURSING program. It's in regards to ALL the programs. It's about all CCC's. The changes she is trying to make will affect us too.

ah ok thanks. i sure hope that HESI thing is fixed. I am applying this year and hopefully everything is sorted out by next year. I have been reading horror stories about HESI test.

Good luck to you, and hopefully this hesi thing does get sorted out. But it's not gonna happen if we all just sit and wait for it to happen :scrying: We need to band together.... But I guess no one will take action until the end of this year, and students start dropping like flies.... Spread the word! It's only way to make a change. I'm trying my best. But I'm only 1 person

thanks. I have one more question. I have been hearing rumors about dividing ccc students based on where they live. Like north side students -> truman. South side -> Daley college. Do you know when it is going to be implemented? do you have any info about it ?

thanks
