    So, waht is the point system-I keep hearing about it?

    My school picks those for the program based on who gets the highest points. Points are based on-
    completed pre-reqs- up to 36 pts,
    healthcare experience- up to 8 pts
    GPA- up to 40 pts
    the scores on the school's entrance exam- up to 60 pts.

    I have 108 points, same as last semester's cut off. I'm wondering if they had a few people with the same amount of points at their cut off, how do they choose who gets in and who doesn't. Hopefully I'll get in.

    I am right there with you all, I am waiting. I am in the summer term now finishing up a couple of class to to have all of my Pre and Co req. done except Micro. I have heard that they had almost tripled number of applicants for the Fall term. I am on pins and needles until the end of May or the First week of June depending on the mail. Anyway good luck to us all.

    Well, talked to the nursing dept yesterday and they havent reviewed my file yet-so looks like I am in for a wait. She did say there was still lots of room in the fall class, and I still need to finish my pre req of Biology in the next few weeks-so who knows. Either way I have a plan-but I would soooooo love to get into the fall class!

    We will be waiting here until about the last week in May or the first week in June. It's a killer waiting and not knowing for sure. My calendar is marked and I will be stalking the mailbox the whole time..

    Our point system is a little different. You get points based on the general ed courses that you have already completed and the grades that you received. For instance a C is 2 points, a B is 3, and an A is 4. Multiply that by credit hour. If Eng is 3 credit hours and you have a B you will receive 9 points. The only other points awarded are 1 for CNA2, 1 for diploma (not healthcare related, 2 for diploma that is in the healthcare field (LPN, Surg tech), 4 for a BSN or associates in non healthcare field and then 6 for Associates or BSN in healthcare. So the most points awarded is somewhere in the neighborhood of 118. The highest last year was like 89 and the lowest was 56. I have 56. So its a wait and see thing. Good Luck! I have to wait till June for my first choice, the second is July.
