    i didnt post rumors i dont think 3 people would bad mouth their own program... you might view it a little diff because you are already in the program...and its not a reflection of the program but the students...CSN is considered the best in Nevada from what i hear

    apn11 I am an alternate too. ----- told me the same thing. I talked with her this morning about if and when and how many of us there are. She told me they are a week behind and could not answer those questions for me at this point. I hope we get in maybe she will know more Friday.

    Yes, if you are an alternate, go! I know this spring semester they let in like 9 or 10 alternates! People always back out last minute, or find they can't pay or miss the orientation, something!

    does anyone know the cut off score

    some are notified the first orientation. I don't know how they pick them though!

    I think alternates are picked by score. Like if the cutoff was 28 and not all of the 28s got in (hypothetical!), then the remaining 28s would be put in a lotto for position (1,2,3 etc). Then the 27s would be put in a lotto for the remaining spots.

    Also wanted to comment on the "rumors"... Being a hospital employee, I KNOW that the nurse managers PREFER csn students! Even the CNAs do (myself included). Csn students work harder than ANY nursing students I've seen. The fact that csn has cracked down speaks wonders for the program.

    Just a tip to my fellow nursing students: when you are in clinicals, do not be caught sitting down! I constantly see UNLV & Touro students SITTING!! This makes CNAs & nurses not want to help you. Since we are at CSN, I don't think this will be a problem.. But wanted to throw it out there! The other day, I had a student come up to me and tell me to find her when I did a bed bath so that she could do a skin assessment. She was chatting with her friends when I was ready to do it. Do you think I went and told her? **** No!

    Has anyone picked up their packets yet? It sure would be nice to get some good news (as an alternate) but I doubt it.

    I picked mine up around 1 this afternoon. How about you? Do u know how many alternates there are?

    I picked mine up earlier. Based on the sign in sheets I, (and I don't know how many names per sheet). There were 4 pages for full time, and two pages for part time. There were also 2 pages for the alternates, but the second one wasn't full. I know my "assessment" is rather arbitrary. I didn't ask how many were selected for each program. I did over hear ---- saying that they won't know for sure how many alternates they are taking until after next Friday's orientation. Believe it or not, people don't show up for it.

    I picked up my packet but it was about one too, so I can't say about what the outlook is :-(
