    just got some crappy news . i was told last year from the nursing counselor that i would start for sure next fall, (you know, actual nursing school). i have 23 pts, and was told that would get me in.

    now i am told that the lowest accepted this semester was 24 ! . so, i guess, now there is no sure thing. there are too many straight a students applying (dang those over-acheivers!), and sadly, i got some c's.

    sooooooooooo, i don't know when i'll start now. i can only hope that a lot more mediocre or down right dumb students apply!:chuckle

    i can do nothing but w a i t ! i'm all done with pre-req's. i'm taking pharm and math med just to help me once i'm in. though now i wonder if i should hold off? anyone else in my boat? heather

    Sorry to hear that Dublin, what a bummer!

    Is there another school in your area that you could apply to as well?

    I'm starting to get nervous waiting on acceptance letters here. Turns out they're going to be mailed later than expected, somewhere around mid-March. I want to know now! *whine*

    Yeah they are about 2yrs for a ADN program and around 5 for the BSN.. ughhhhhhhhh

    I will just have to do the RN to BSN thing later.

    Congrats Tara, great news! I'm very impatiently waiting... but wish me luck, I'm applying for several scholarships and I go to interview for one on Feb 21st (I'm uncertain as to whether I'm going to be able to afford school this fall, so a scholarship would SURE help!)

    Hey, that's my birthday! So, good luck!

    Congrats on the acceptance... are you taking the entrance exam as a condition for enrolling in that school, or are you applying somewhere else also?

    Hey Rocky Mountain EMT,

    Boy, that's a long time to wait for school! I am doing my Associates first also, then I'll just go right into the BS online. Why wait twice as long to make the same amount and build experience??

    (You probably already know this) CU Denver has a completely online RN to BSN program, and you can pretty much tailor it to your needs as far as completion time. Buena Suerte! SG

    The NLN entrance exam is for the school im currently attending. The have limited admission to their nursing program.

    NIU is where I will get the RN to BSN. I plan to try to take some courses ahead of time to expidite the process

    Oh great, well good luck on the exam then. I'm sure you'll do great. I get test anxiety something awful, so I'm glad that the school I'm applying to doesn't use an exam as part of the admissions process.

    Rocky - WOW! Those waitlists are unreal! How long have you been on the waitlist (or are you just now applying)?

    Yep, that's me too -- I'm starting my bachelor of Nursing on Feb 23. Maybe we need an online study group? From the sound of all these threads, we'll be needing all the study-buddies we can get! lol
