Hello everyone,

Anyone applying for CSI nursing program? Does anyone know what admission looked like during Spring semester NLN score wise?
I am applying for Fall , I have decent GPA and A in all classes, but my NLN score is not the best.
Would appreciate any info on CSI nursing program.

Hi im applying! I applied last semester with a 3.2 GPA and only a 106 (51 percentile) on the nln and didn't get in :(. This semester I have a 3.5 and a 136 (92 percentile). My pre req grade is alright, 2 B's and 2 A's. Im keeping my fingers crossed, Good luck!

Thank you, I hope so! Studying the sets you can buy from the website is what helps the most, there was a lot of the same questions.

That's what I did exactly. My problem was that I had no idea the the timing is going to be tough. I didn't have time to finish. The contents of the test is very basic.

Yea the timing for the English section is terrible, I ran out of time the first time I took the nln. The second time I tried to pace myself better and still was in a rush

I mean it is insane to read 8 texts and 30 multiple choice in just 40 mins.

Cant wait until next Wednesday to know if I made it.

I know a girl that got in with 103 last semester, I don't know her GPA though. But since you didn't make it last semester with 106, I am a little confused as to how they make their selection, unless that girl had a very high GPA.

Yea it confuses me too. I heard about someone with a 3.7 who didn't get in and tried 3 times IDK what the nln grade was. I also heard some people couldn't take the nln because nln didn't send them the proctoring info

One thing is clear when it comes to admissions there is nothing solid. And yes this semester was a disaster . I did the NLN online ant it was horrible. I was scheduled at 10am , could hardly start at 11am because my proctor was I don't know where.

And while changing from one reading to another I would have some 20 seconds of blank page until it loaded, although my connection was excellent.

Same I never got a zoom link and customer service didn't answer the phone so I was emailing them for an hour before I could start the test. Before that I was told the night before my originally scheduled exam it had to be rescheduled. I had the problem too with the blank pages but mine lasted longer than 20 seconds. Did you receive a comfirmation when you sent your scores in? I didn't I want to make sure I sent it to the right email.

No they didn't confirm the receipt. I was concerned about that too. I ended up sending my score again )))) but no answer. I think They are not going to confirm.

And did you notice they changed the physical form too? I did it last month, and now I have to redo it, because it is slightly different.
