    I was accepted into the traditional. Didn't apply for the accelerated. I don't have enough time on my hands to compress my courses.

    Oh well, I didn't get accepted. I kind of anticipated this based on the information session- applicants with healthcare experience received additional points, as well as applicants who had taken coursework at EMU. I had a 4.0 pre-req gpa, and I'd also already taken pharmacology and patho with "A's," but based on the point system ---- discussed, I maxed out at 145 points because of lack of healthcare experience- my hospital volunteer hours didn't count. So basically to have a shot for this cohort, you need healthcare experience and/or pre-reqs taken at EMU. This isn't the case for all schools though.

    I was accepted into the accelerated 2nd bachelor's program. I had a 4.0 overall, all of my pre-requisite classes were taken at EMU, and I passed the TEAS. I feel very fortunate given the high competition this year! I am sorry for those who didn't get it. Don't let it deter you from going for your dreams. Just keep taking the classes you can apply to a nursing degree and apply again next year, or to other schools.

    Hi Everyone,
    I went to a nursing information several years ago and I heard there is now a point system. I found a pdf file on EMU's web site, but it was for 2007 and I was curious do you get points for pre-req GPA or is it just points for the chemistry & A&P classes taken? On the PDF file it didn't say anything about pre-req GPA for the admission criteria.

    how do you provide proof of healthcare experience?
  6. by   DrivenToDream
    I think you had to provide a statement of working at ABC Nursing Home or whatever. Had to be on their letterhead. Things change so I would make an appointment with an adviser to see what is current. I know they are always evaluating the programs and admission process and I'm sure the website is most current.

    Has anyone turned in their application for the Fall 2012 Nursing School Traditional Program yet? I did and waiting for that letter in June!!

    Yes, I applied for the fall traditional program. I'm going crazy and running to the mailbox everyday. I called the nursing department today and was told that the decision letters have begun going out and I should hear something by the first week in July. My fingers, toes and anything else I can cross are crossed!!!

    Hello everyone!

    I'm a transfer student from WCC to eastern (starting this fall) I've taken a lot of the program pre-recs at WCC but I'm retaking all but A&P and English over the course of this year. I'm transferring with a 3.6 GPA with 2 years of healthcare work under my belt. I'm super worried about the point system and I know EMU favors their students. Do you think I'll have a decent chance of getting in!?! I'm so worried!! THanks for any help and advice!
