Hi Ohniec,

oh okay. I heard that you haven't took the teas test yet? I plan on taking mines in Jan. I am in Biology class now and about to finish with it this semester.

Do you think it is a bad Ideal to start in the summer?

Hi Ohniec,

I think it all depends on the person. If I get aceepted I plan on doing it. I work full time and have two kids so I would have to find a part time job working 2 days a week. My advisor also encourage nursing students to stay away from summer classes if you are taking Biology classes. But again it depends on how you think you will do. But a lot of people say to start in the Fall. I also looked into it like this. I may not get another chance this year to apply and get accepted if I dont apply this time around.

Does anyone know how many days per week? or does anyone know whats the average number of points accepted. Im also applying to summer Lawson state 2016

Hi shunrn

Looking at the older posts I assume that they dont have a set number when it comes to the points. I always heard that they go with the highest and go from there. I dont know if you have taken the teas test yet so try to aim high on it to get your points up. Having good grades in biology helps too. And as far as the days for the program its really busy. The schedule is at least going toclass at least 3 out of 4 days. They also encourge nursing students not to work unless they have to. I would have to find a part time job working two days for a few hours.

I am applying for the fall program at Lawson. I don't see as many people talking on the site about Lawson but I'll be keeping my eye on the forum. Hopefully people start posting their points and any information they know (since the program is going through changes now.) Good luck!

Hi, I'm applying as well. I didn't know the program is going through changes.

Yes they are changing the program after this Fall. You should see new info on the website when they change over. I went to the info session and they said they will accept around 100 but cant remember if they said 130 or 140.

Did you apply? Im worried about my points and if thats enough to get in... What are your total points so far?

I am already in the program for RN (going to 3rd semester this summer). If you all have questions, I will be more than happy to try to answer them

I turned in my application for RN and will be turning in my LPN soon. But my scores were very low. I think 112 for RN and 125 for LPN. I have good grades and a good GPA.

How is the Program Lstratman? If I dont get accepted this Fall I will apply using my ACT. I felt like the teas test was a problem in my application. But hope I get in

Its challenging for sure! But doable. If you get in I would HIGHLY suggest the Saunders Nclex Review book, do as many NCLEX style questions as you can when it comes to test time, and get the HESI RN review book. This has saved me on the HESI Exams you have to take each semester. Stay focused. You can do it! I heard they are letting more in this year than last year since the curriculum is changing. So don't give up hope/faith

Thank you! I will make sure I get it. But yes they said that they were. Just praying I get in. Ill keep the faith because nursing has always been my passion

So nervous...I am applying to lawson for the fall. I cant stop thinking about getting my letter.

It would be nice if there was a way to find out sooner. I kinda regret not applying to both programs. Hopefully I get some good news. When should we find out? Maybe the middle of July?

Both programs as in Lpn an RN or the bham an bessemer campus ? There is only one program now. No lpn and RN. U have the choice to stop after 3 semesters an get ur lpn or go the rest of the 2 semesters an get your RN. The lady on the Bham campus said July maybe .. middle of July but she said they are going to try to get them out sooner.
