Thanks for the update! So we will know with in the next two weeks. That's light at the end of the tunnel. Fingers, eyes & toes crossed until then! Lol
I just called the Nursing department. The committee hasn't met yet and it hasn't been scheduled. We should expect to receive information somethime during the month of April. Soooo... It could be as much as 5 more weeks or as little as 1. A lot of help. Huh?
The wait is awful! I'm trying not to think about it.
Good job scoring a 108 on the NLN but what is your index score? (used for selection) @harvey38
What is your index score?
Hi there! There are a couple of in here waiting for word. I started a thread to get in contact as well
Hi there! I haven't taken it but found this link online. I'm not sure if it's just that institutions interpretation of the scores or the true rating. I hope this helps.
Take AP2 in the Summer but I recommend Micro for Fall. My Micro class covered A LOT of material for the regular semester and Summer is only for weeks. For example, the first two exams covered 5 chapters and the last two exams "eased up" & covered 4 chapters each. I can't imagine 5 chapters being covered and tested in only a week. My professor felt it really needed to be split into two courses.
I hand delivered my application to the Union campus today. So the wait now begins. I was looking at a previous board. It looks like a decision may not be made until April. I'm going to try and forget about it until after Spring Break. I sure hope I have better luck this time. We shall see.
Hi there! I've started a thread for the Fall. (Southwest TN CC Fall 2015) I applied for Spring with all B's in the prereqs and a 132 on NLN. I missed it by less than 2 index points. Each term, your chances depend on the applicant pool.
It was professional. The hypothetical comments are most likely realistic as the professor has probably seen it happen before.
Now that the selection has been made for the Spring 2015 class, I thought we might as well start looking to the future. I applied for the the first time for the Spring but wasn't accepted. I wasn't all that optimistic after reading some of the index scores but was hoping. I sure do hope that there is a lot of truth to the idea that it's a lot more competitive for the Spring than the Fall.
Let's see where you stand...
1) Have you applied before? If so, how many times?
2) what is your index score as of now?
I used this book & got 94:
ISBN 9780763762711 - RN Pre-Entrance Exam with CD 3rd Edition Direct Textbook
It definitely depends on the school. The one I'm trying to get into requires a successful score on the NLN. I "think" I even heard of one that has no entrance exam requirement.
No problem @StephanieRNStudent! I just figured you would like an "instant" response if you're getting ready for finals. I SURE WOULD! Luckily you got it. That's why I love this site. People are soooo helpful and reassuring. 😊
