Wendysu - If I remember correctly it depends on whether you are a recent high school graduate or if you have had college courses. If you have had college you get points for Microbiology, A&P 1 and A&P2. I didn't pay attention to the point system for recent hs grads, but I think it is Algebra, Chemistry and one more. Sorry not to helpful there. You get 30 pts each for an A, 20 for a B, 10 for a C. So the max you can get from the classes is 90. Hope that is helpful.

Thanks, I have taken A & P I & II. Not micro however. I have taken all the social sciences like socialogy & human growth & development, also nutrition. Currently LPN student at PJC in Pensacola, hoping to get into JD bridge program. I scored a 95 on the compass, but if they want like a 180 for points, I may not make it :(

However my GPA for my LPN program is a 3.97 so far :D, averaging summer & fall semester.

That should count for something.

Good luck to all of you.

Unfortunatly without the micro it will be tough. Maybe not so much for the bridge program. I don't know anything about that but the rn program is pretty competitive. Good luck and try anyway.

Yeah, I agree with Sniper1. The bridge program may be different. If you read the previous threads in this discussion, we have all applied for at least one program (standard RN program) and haven't gotten in. I have applied twice - had both A&P's and had a 98 on Compass the last semester. Next time around I will have all the courses and I am still not sure if I will get in. It could be that the mobility program is different. I know a couple people who decided to go for their LPN because the RN programs are so competitive and they could do the mobility after the fact...at least they didn't lose time waiting to get in a program.

Good luck to you!

Hi to everyone who has been so supportive during my time of trying to get into nursing school.

I have an update -- I have truly been studying myself and what I can handle and what makes me happy. Unfortunately, I haven't been at peace with my decision to be a nurse even though I LOVE the medical field and love to help others...I don't do well with stress. I thrive on the peaceful feeling that I get when all is done, organized, caught up, etc. I am naturally an organized person and put 110% effort into everything that I do. I was trying to get over the stress that comes with nursing and tell myself that I could handle it and overcome it. That may be so but I have decided I am not willing to take that chance. I will not be returning to JD next semester and am searching for a job at a hospital instead (office/administration). I have previous experience in that field and was always good at it.

So...good luck to you all!

Presnall - Good luck to you. I can totally identify with what you are saying and have been going back and forth myself. I wish you very much success in whatever you decide to do! The medical field is a great market no matter what the position. People always need healthcare and the supporting roles are just as important.

Happy New Year!

Tabacque -- you know how you said you have gone back and forth -- I was back and now I am forth :) ...I start this semester Tuesday -- my determination disappeared over the holidays and I got lazy!

I am still scared and not totally certain because of not knowing all the answers (which scares me) BUT I am signed up and ready to go. I don't want to regret that I didn't do this when I had an opportunity to.

I have micro and A&P II and PSY210 this semester. Those are my last 3 pre-req's. If I make A's in micro and A&P I will surely get in with a point total of 188.

You guys keep in touch and let me know how you're doing.

Ca anyone tell me about high the points need to be at Jeff Davis? Is the compass test hard? I went to the book store but they did not have a book for it. I want to get in at Jeff Davis (although I live in P-cola and have a family) because I might be able to start earlier. I will have all my pre-req's this summer and could apply for the spring. PJC is already full til next FALL! The good thing about PJC is they have loans, it's close, and I heard the lab is really neat. I am also told though that Jeff Davis is a better school. Also, how hard is the hesi test for PJC? If I study hard is nursing school do-able? Lastly, any nurses in Pensacola area..will there still be job opennings in the next year? How much is the pay? Sorry for all the questions...just reallly want to pursue my dream and I am sooo confused about all this!
