Worried about oral and essay for nursing school

  1. Hello everyone!

    Just became a member of Allnurse today. I was perusing the Internet in search of information on questions I will be asked if I get into a LVN nursing program. Took the entrance test on Saturday for sixty positions. There are about 500 applicants for those positions. Around 120 people will be selected for oral and written interviews. Would anyone know about the essay questions that are asked.

    I did find another forum in which oral interview questions were listed, and it was very informative.

    Currently I am working as a PCA, (Personal Care Assistant). I am wondering if that would be considered a plus in trying to get into a nursing program?

    This is a late in life career change and I am also wondering if that will be Held against me.

    With all that aside, I am very excited about taking the first steps to what may be my future career, and feel positive about my test scores.

    Wish me luck!!!
