Just joining this thread.
I was also recently accepted into the Spring 2018 Nursing Program at Collin, and I'm excited to meet everyone.
For those that got on the wait list...a friend of mine who started the program this fall said that A LOT of people got into the program that were waitlisted. I hope this applies to all of you. I know of 2 people that were accepted into the Spring program, but are going to attend a different nursing school.
I was also told (by Cathleen) that our application group was the largest they've had since they started opening up multiple start dates. They had around 250 applicants for the fall program, and we had 300+ for the spring program.
I also heard (not 100% sure if it's true) that if you're waitlisted and don't get in you're basically guaranteed a spot the following semester.
Best of luck to everyone.
Well the school is def veteran friendly From my experience. Stay positive Moore, and dont burn any bridges.
I was accepted in the past, I don't know my psb stats off the top of my head but I have a 4.0 with over 80ish credits, majority of them At collin. No prior degree, I think I remember seeing your stats a while back but idk but there's gotta be a reason for everything.
I know this will be frustrating to hear, but I do have a prior degree in Business.
I have a 4.0 in my prereqs
Micro is in progress this fall
And I pretty much got 94th percentile across the board on the PSB.
Cathleen said that only a handful of people got accepted without having Micro completed. She said you had to have high grades and a really high PSB.
I also took Honors A/P II, and I'm taking Honors Microbiology.
Although, she told me last spring that Honors didn't matter. It did with their old point system but not anymore. I still decided to take it because I figured it couldn't hurt my chances.
I know it's so frustrating because this is our future. A friend of mine was waitlisted, and she was really mad because she's worked in a doctor's office for the past 10 years.
I completely understand. We have 4 kids, and the cost to raise them is no joke.
I would definitely talk to Cathleen and find out what went wrong. She claims to not have a say in who gets accepted, but I'm not 100% convinced that's true.
Don't give up! You should get in somewhere with those stats!
Have you looked into Grayson as a back-up? I heard they have a pretty good program also.
I completely get it. I would feel the same way. I honestly didn't think they gave priority to people with Bachelor Degrees, but now I'm starting to rethink that based on this thread.
You are doing AMAZING, and I definitely wouldn't give up. This is just a little set back that probably just means you're going to start one semester later than you originally thought.
Best of Luck to you!!!!
I would also try Collin again for Summer 2018 because you will have Micro finished by then. Cathleen said only a handful of people got in this Spring without Micro completed.
Yeah, you two are definitely more qualified than I am; I don't know why y'all didnt get accepted. My PSB stats are all in the 90s but I have B's in all my pre-reqs. I also do not have a previous bachelor's degree. I think I only got accepted because this was my second time applying? The only thing that changed in my stats the second time around was my AA score on the PSB. Turned a 78 into a 90
Does anyone know when do clinical rotations start? We have to finish our immunizations by then, right? With positive blood titers?
I actually was accepted for the Spring 2018 program, so it sounds like I'll see you there. :-)
From my understanding, we start clinicals in March/April, and yes, titers have to be done by then. If you haven't done a titer yet I would recommend that you go ahead and do it because if you need Hep B it's a series of 3 shots spread out over 6 months.
Can I pick your brain? I did terribly on the AA portion first time around. Taking it again on Monday and I'm super nervous. I do great on my practice tests when I have time but the test timed me out so quickly last time. Any advice? Did you guestimate on the math questions? Did you answer all 90 questions in the 15 min time limit? Help!
I started a Collin College ADN Summer 2018 thread if anyone is interested.
