    I still need to take General education for CLC and I was wondering how hard they were. CMM 127 or ANT 221 or ANT 228.

    I also need a humanity course. Were they more of report writing or doing exam?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Everyone,

    I took the NLN for the 2nd time and I did better. The first time I got in the 78 percentile, this time I got in the 89 percentile. Also my first composite score was 112, this time I got 127.

    Any CLC Students: Do you think my new scores are good enough to get into CLC's program?

    keekeedt- congrats on your 89! =) i think everyone does better the 2nd time around.. also, i personally think 89 is a good score. i called the nursing ed office to see what the NLN cut off was for the past semester and they said the first time around the lowest they accepted was 87. then they went around a second time and called ppl from the waiting list all the way down to 70something. but then again, it always depends on the applicant pool and what other applicants score on the NLN.

    are you applying for spring 2010? if you are.. maybe we'll be classmates =) good luck with everything!

    To my understanding you will have to take the NLN. I have a friend who is a LPN, she contacted CLC to see if they would accept her as a 3rd semester student. They refused - if she wanted to go to CLC she would have to start from scratch. In addition to that, some of her science classes were older so she would have to take some additional science classes. I don't know what she ended up doing, but she didn't go to CLC. I hope this helps...good luck!
    When you go to the info session they give you a whole page on LPN/LVN to RN. They call it the Career Mobility System. LPN/LVNs can get their RN in just 1 semester. Hope that helps

    I hate being a bubble burster, but I think that may still be low. Although your score is really good,for the spring class of 09 the lowest score on the NLN was like a 93-96 percentile or something. It is so insane! My instructor said this was one of the highest cut offs for entry. Of course things could've changed and would go ahead and try again.

    Thanks for all the feedback. No you are not a bubble buster, you are just giving me info. I know it is challenging getting in already. I wish I could apply for the Spring 2010 semester, but I still need the CNA class. I underestimated myself and didn't sign up for a CNA class this fall So now I have to wait and take it in the Spring which means I've made myself have to wait until the Spring 2011 semester. That is okay cause I still need a few classes (PSY220, SOC121, CMM127, and BIO 125). Micro is full, so I am going to do the SOC and CMM class this fall 2009. I will get there though:wink2:

    I am starting the program this fall, actually in one week - YIKES! I got in with an 87. And I know they went as low as 80 percentile. So, don't be discouraged. I know some students that didn't even apply because they were in the 80's, and now they are probably kicking themselves. I think the CNA class discouraged some people from applying, which worked in my favor. So make sure you have your CNA and don't miss the deadline!!

    Hey guys! I got my test results today and I'm not sure which composite percentile score is the one I should be looking at. Mine result sheet has composites for DI, AD and ALL? Anyone know?????

    If I remember right, it's the AD score that you need to look at. I could be wrong though. Not much help am I?

    I called the Nursing Dept and she said the composite percentile score under AD is what they look for. I'm super nervous and anxious to find out if I got in. I got a 93% but it's my understanding that it is super competitive. Anyone know how long it takes for them to decide?

    You have to apply to the program once you have your NLN score complete and all your pre-reqs met. I took the NLN in the summer of 2007, applied to the nursing program by the early September 2007 deadline, and then heard from them in early November 2007. I began the program in January of 2008. Good luck to you!!!!
