Hi there, I wanted to know if there are any students who statrting the LVN program on May 14th? Are u guys nervous about the school? Do you anyone who graduated from there?
I start May 14th at Stanbridge college, in Irvine CA
I took the TEAS last week.. I've been out of school for a little while so it was kind of fun to brush up on the math and science. One resource I used for practice questions that I didn't see on your list was:
Test Prep Review
I also used a library copy of McGraw Hill's Nursing School Entrance Exams by Thomas A. Evangelist. BEWARE IF YOU USE THE FIRST EDITION! There are a number of errors in the questions. I emailed the publisher and got them to send me a list of corrections. I can't upload files (I don't know if I can even use the PM as this is my first post), so reply if you need the list and I can email you (Excel file).
Have to say, I was surprised at the number and specificity of human body science questions I got.. 11/48 in the science section; the rest were 15/48 life science, 14/48 earth & physical science, 8/48 science reasoning. Maybe I should have realized the body focus.. this is a pre-nursing test, after all. Not everyone gets the same questions of course, so YMMV.
Best of luck!
Have u checked National University? I'm taking the rest of my prerequisites there (san diego), and I will be able to apply in 6 months. It's a program for a BSN, which saves you a lot of time. It costs about $40,000, there's no waiting list. They accept people based on grades, teas test score and essay. I know they have a campus in L.A, but I'm not sure if they have nursing program there.
I don't know much about these schools, but since they are "career" schools you should check if you would be able to transfer to a community college after getting your LVN. Since most of them don't accept it, then you would have to end up getting your RN from another private school and spending more $$.
I went to National University yesterday, and I already registered for classes. I only need to take 5 classes there
I'm gonna start in July and finish next March, then apply for the October cohort. Hopefully I will get in Were you accepted on your first try?
I still need to talk to the financial aid advisor though, and figure out the money situation.
Anyway just wanted to let you know
That's good that you were able to pay for it through the military. A lot of things are getting cut, hopefully I will find somehow to pay for it.
And I hope the counselor can help me too
Which part of SD do u live ? If u don't mind me asking.
I'm in Rancho Penasquitos.
Thanks!! I'm gonna try to figure out what I can apply for as well. I'm gonna go there next week. Have a great weekend too!!
So you're in the military?
It's true, I think my chances would be better graduating from National.
Is it easy to get financial aid? Because I couldn't possibly pay $2,000 for each class.
Sorry If I'm asking too many questions
I'm glad to hear that it's a good program!! I'm not about to spend 4,000 for a cna though. I'm thinking about doing the CNA course in San Francisco. It's 4 weeks long and only $900, after that I will apply there.
The RN program is only offered at the San Diego campus. I'm currently in my second semester there. The admissions process is based on a point system so you do not necessarily need 6 months medical experience, but the admissions reps will definitely tell you that or try to make you take some other medical class they offer (PCAT, MA, or CNA) since being an alumni there gives you points as well. Having a bachelors in another field also helps you get in (no medical experience required) and they also look at your teas score (must be in the mid-high 80s).
No, I don't have a bachelor's yet. I wasn't very serious about school until I got married hehe. That's good to know that they only count those classes for the GPA, it seems like a really good school!
The only down side is that the only available class for me is next April, June, and August. That means I would only be able to apply at the end of next year
I know about Kaplan's credits not being able to transfer, but I heard University of Phoenix will accept it and people go there for their bachelor's.
Thanks for all the info!!
It's about 50k, if you are not transferring any classes.. I'm not a student there though. But I did visit the San Diego campus and got some information. You also need at least 6 months of medical experience before applying to the program.
No I didn't see it, they deleted it before I had a chance to read it.
I had no idea we couldn't post in another language..
