Waiting to hear from Inver Hills on acceptance

  1. Lord I HATE this wait. I have the credits and the gpa but only a month of CNA expirience so....I'm doubtful but hopeful. Who else is waiting on Inver? Is it March yet?????

    Well, I am not at Inver Hills, but I am at their sister school, Century. I am waiting to see if I get in. I have the experience...but its a couple years old. I have decent grades...but am worried if my gpa is good enough....I hate the wait!!

    Do you know if they consider folks that don't have all the sciences? I'm still missing physio and micro but have a good gpa and work experience. Think I have a shot? I know, the waiting is killing me!!!

    Oh, and I applied to Century, not Inver Hills-- don't know if they have the same acceptance policies

    I believe their #1 decision criteria is how much direct patient care you have.

    Well it kind of depends.... you get extra points on your application if you have A's or B's in those classes. Last year I applied and I only had biology 1020, chemistry and medical dosages, terminology, and psych done. I had a gpa of 3.57 and I was given a wait list number of 85. Considering they usually place 65 of the people on the wait list, I didn't think that was so bad. Now that I have A & P I, II and micro done I will have 3 more points on my application. I do have over 480hrs of experience, however it is a couple years old. When I met with an advisory, they said as long as it was within 5 years it counted.

    So, I think it could be possible that you get in. If you have over a 3.5 gpa that helps. I know someone who had the same classes as me done, however he had a 4.0 gpa and he got into spring session. I wouldn't count on getting into the fall session. Hope this helps! Good luck

    2004-05, I completed all my generals at Inver Hills CC..applied 2 yrs straight, 3.8 gpa, and the last class I took was Nursing Assist, because where I was working I was making more money and didnt want to take the pay cut.. well needless to say, I didnt get into the program..so I I decided to LPN bridge RN, no more waiting around...It hurt me..but it may be different now..I will keep my fingers crossed for ya!

    Thanks everyone! Yeah, I'm nervous about the lack of CNA work time but...hey, I can't take the pay cut either! Still waiting. They said end of Marchish but here it is...and still no letter. I won't hold my breath this week because it is Spring Break but hopefully I will know soon!!!!!!!!

    Did you get your letters yet? I got into Century's RN program, and I start this fall. I hope things went well for you!

    Still haven't heard either way When did you find out? The program has the same application so I'm assuming I must find out soon!

    I checked with NHCC a week or so ago. They said the letters would probably be out the first half of this month. I hope so........stressed waiting.

    Good Luck in the Program at Century. Keep us informed on how it is going.
