They could have changed the policy since...OR it's just a policy that applies to NU classes only. I know it was only applicable to those individuals that would be done with their class in the same month that the applications were due and you couldn't submit your app late.

Good luck with your orientation twilight_saturn!

I'm not sure if they changed it or not, I just know it was possible before.

thanks prettyinpink57! I understand you can put in requests and they are pretty good at accomodating them for clinicals. How many days a week do you have clinicals?

No problem! Clinicals are typically 2 days per week and can be anywhere from 8-12 hour shifts. You have a clinical component for health assessment (i think now the second class) but the hours are much less and are all spent on campus. For fundamentals you spend the first month in the skills lab on campus, and a few days the second month at actual facilities. It really isn't until you get to Med-Surg I and beyond till you start having weekly regular clinicals at the hospitals. Hope that helps! Anymore questions just feel free to ask!

Ps - Tomorrow (February 13th) is the 1 year anniversary since my orientation! I hope you April starters had a good day at orientation.:nurse:

Thank you so much for the information! Very helpful! If I can ask, do you think I will drop dead if I work full-time while in school?

Expharmagirl, you most certainly won't drop dead but you will be EXHAUSTED! One of my good friends in the program works full time and is still going strong 11 months later! (There was a close call once where she BARELY passed one of the classes but hey she did it!) And I think you can do! You just gotta be dedicated and have the motivation and there's nothing you can't do!:rolleyes:

Hi All,

Does anyone know which of the three National campuses are easier to get into....in regards to how many applications received, GPA, TEAS, etc? My overall GPA from my Bachelor's degree (Bio-medical Science) is 3.0 in pre-reqs I had to repeat my A&P I and Microbio. to get a better grade.....However, I do have about 10 W's on my transcript with 3 D's and 2 F's (Biochemistry and Genetics) in three different semesters as I was going thru a terrible time when two of my immediate family members passed away in road accidents within a year's time. I was really depressed for a while and didn't care during my junior and senior year (usually the opposite happens when people don't care in their freshman and sophomore year). Went through separation myself, was only 21 when all this happened....and now three years later, I regret it all but it was all out of my hands :(. So basically, my junior and senior year were bad and my last 60 semester hours' GPA is 2.7 (overall will be 3.0 though).....well enough with my bad grades, I was wondering if anyone can tell me what my chances are? Where do I stand? What can/can't be done? I'm only planning on applying in California as I'm married now and my husband has a great Software Engineering job and I don't want him to move outside California with me (due to the job crisis) and I don't wanna leave him unless it's the last option I have :(. I'm really putting my heart into nursing and want to become a Nurse Practitioner after I've gained some experience as an RN first *fingers crossed* and can't take my mind off of it. Ok, I'll stop...too much for now....but I'll love and really appreciate any replies/suggestions you guys might have. Thanks for reading :) G-luck to everyone! :)

Hi IwannaBNP,

I can only speak to San Diego, and the last cohort, since that is what I applied to. The nursing program is in Rancho Bernardo.

There were 160 applicants for 50 spots. You have to have an overall GPA of 2.75 OR a 3.0 in the last 60 credit hours. What they really look at for acceptance is your grades in A&P 1&2, Micro, and Stats, how many times it took you to take them (that's 50%), your teas score (30%), and the proctored essay (20%). As far as teas, our program average was 77.4%. So getting higher than that would be ideal.

Best of luck to you! I should be hearing in the next 3 weeks.

HI EVERYONE!

So.. i've been on this forum for a while now contemplating whether or not I should get into nursing and i've decided that this is what I really want to do.. I just feel like its impossible because the waitlists are SO LONG at community colleges in san diego as well as CSU's. So with that said, I need some major advice on what are the EXACT pre-req's to get into National University's nursing program, If I can be done by Summer 2010 with my pre-req's, when is the next time I can apply to the nursing program? your answers will be really really REALLY appreciated!!

Right now.. I have a 2.53 gpa overall at a community college.. the reason being so low is because I honestly haven't found what my true passion was.. I felt like I was stagnant at a comm college not getting anywhere.. I'm 20 years old & I realized that I really want to be a nurse. I have no work or hospital experience at all and I just need some guidance.. I hope to hear from anyone soon! Thanks!
