I think I read it was 30 applicants to the online program. I really haven't been able to find much information on the program. I'm about 2 hours away from the campus. So really hoping this online option works out, especially since I work monday-friday. 

Hi.  I'm considering Davidson also.  Do you know how the clinical portion works?  I can't find anything on their website.  Thanks!

It states in the admission packet that you do X amount of unpaid hours at a acute site in the state of NC. • Each of the two LPN to ADN courses requires 144 hours of clinical practice, UNPAID. Clinical
may be with a preceptor or in an assigned clinical group. If with a RN preceptor, this may be arranged in the student’s area of residence and possibly within the current place of work, but may not be within the same unit of employment. Acute care inpatient settings are the only acceptable sites. All clinical experiences must be within North Carolina and the nursing faculty will make final approval of facilities and preceptor(s). Students are expected to initiate locating an approved preceptor and clinical site. Students will then work with the clinical coordinator to finalize clinical arrangements.

However, I’m not sure on how many days and stuff it is a week. Or if it’s only in the second semester etc, that’s all I could find and the other forums didn’t say much either.

Do y’all think it’s possible for emails to come out sooner?

I think they could come out a day or so Sooner. That happened at my last college anyway! 

 

Another question, does anyone see where math is a required pre-req for this program? The letter I just got in the mail from the campus and what’s listed online on their website are two different things and are a bit contraindicating.... help? Lol

I didn't get a letter in the mail. I don't know anything about a math requirement. I have college algebra though, and got a 91 on my math portion of my teas, So I don't think I have anything to worry about. What was the letter??

Yeah the letter said the pre-req was math 70 or higher... I only have math 60, but made a 90 in math on my teas. Nothing online states you needed math 70 or above like the letter said.

I just found the letter this morning. If its coming from a different school look at stormtrac and see what they transferred it in as. Mine is college algebra and they transferred it in as 161.

It was just the letter then sent you when you applied to the school. It's just the requirements letter for your given major.

It is spread out over two semesters. You can identify your own preceptor, from what I have gathered.
