    So I guess you guys haven't heard anything yet? I dont know why you would have. I guess I'm just anxious! I went to the first conference so it's been so long since I heard anything at all from the nursing department. I'm so sick of waiting, I've been doing pre-reqs for 1 1/2 years and still have another semester to go...If i'm lucky!! I was going to apply to LPN also just to double my chances, but I decided against it. I want to be an RN, then get my MSN and no offense to LPNs but it seems like it adds more time on. well i'll stop posting useless stuff!LOL. Can't wait to find out!!

    No nothing yet. I understand being tired of waiting. I've been doing gen eds for a year and got the fall semester left ( if I'm lucky to! LOL). I'm just so ready to be a nurse! I'm so glad the wait is almost over. It seems like at the end of every semester I get worried thinking "Am I going to get all A's, to keep my GPA up for nursing?" It would keep me up at night. I have absolutlry devoted myself to school and tried my hardest to excell in every class (didn't make me popular with some of my class mates!) but that's okay because I have a 4.0 to show for it.

    I'll definatley post if I hear anything!

    The letter I recieved stated that students with 60 pts or higher were accepted in to the program....did you receive a letter stating you did not get in? If they bumped you back up to 61 you may need to look for your acceptance letter....

    wife told me over the phone may have misunderstood her. i got 56 points though. i am probably much better off waiting till fall since i can take 5 or 6 additional classes in the spring and summer, leaving only a handful other than the nursing classes!

    That's true. I was in the same boat last semester. I actually applied then 2 days before the deadline (for this fall) I called and dropped my application on the advice of my Advisor. Not only did I have 5 classes left to take, but like i said on another post, my GPA wouldn't have counted (didn't have 12 non-developmental hours) so it was just better to wait a semester.

    I called WIA to see whenI should get an appoinment. She said all Spring students should get appoinments in October. She does think I can squeak by the income requirment, so that's awesome.
