I hope you will be able to work and do school but most of us in the nursing program have found that it is almost impossible, as is the case with all nursing schools. The kaplan was based on reading, math, comprehension, and some science. You can buy the book in the school bookstore for $15. They take the top 25 scores on that exam, so you have to be prepared. You will know the minute you finish the exam what your score is, and one of the advisors will tell you where you place based on that score.

I have an appointment on Monday to talk to someone about the program... I am wondering, before hand, are they helpful with getting you aid and loans? and are there any pre-reqs? I am debating where to go.. the appeal of this program is how fast the price tag is higher than what I wanted.. the lady told me on the phone it was 53K for the 21 month program. CCRI is much cheaper, but will take me much longer.. what a differcult decision this is!

You have to do what is right for you. It does not hurt to meet with someone and discuss your concerns. I had a lot of luck/help in finding aid and they are usually pretty good about helping you in whatever ways they can. This was definitely the best option for me and I will be done in 10 more months.Good luck.

Hello all,

I am going to take the kaplan test this week, I only had like 5 days to study so im kinda feeling a little pressure because I want to pass it the first time. I was told by someone not to spend so much time reading all thats in the book because alot of the questions that are on the test only pertains to a small portion. I was just wondering if any one could give me some advice and let me know what the test consist of and if it was not as hard as the accuplacer or just as hard or harder. The book is like 300+ pages to study from and at this point its like im reading a never ending story. Any info would be great. Congrats to everyone that has passed.

Thank You

Advise on the book?! Don't waste your time or money on it.. I feel like nothing that was in the book was actually on the test. The reading was just like the accuplacer.. the math was on the easy side. The writing I felt like was nothing I could prepare for.. and the science was strictly 20 questions on the human body. I got a list of the systems from the academic advising office..

I am currently enrolled in the NEIT ASN program and so far I am very VERY happy with the program. Yes, it is expensive but the college does very well with scholarships and financial aid. It is fast pased and very demanding. Best part is I will be done and out into the workforce in under 2 years. As a returning adult student, it is hard to consider a traditional program-- far too long of a wait list. Yes it is cheaper but you are investing 5 years, or longer, in a degree you could get in 2 at NEIT. All of my professors are fabulous, the student support services are incredible, and the course curriculum is truely demanding-- no shortcuts.

Overall I am THRILLED to be a part of this new and exciting program and I encourage anyone whos is considering enrolled to do so.:nurse:

Yup, financial aid was all set. Not sure why I got waitlisted but it doesn't matter now because I did get in. I just got the packet with all the paperwork...so much to do before October.

Hi, I was wondering how everything is going with this program so far. Looks like those that posted on here started last march and are about 9 months in now. I too am looking at New england tech. Every other program has been accredited there, and if you take a loan out to pay for school and they don't get accredited the program will shut down. This is something the government will forgive a loan for, so you can't lose in that respect. If it follows through then pay 50 dollars amonth for 10 yrs. LOL I think a nurses salary can afford that. I have been applying to state colleges trying to finish a nursing degree. I am academically at the point where I need core nursing courses only and "selectivity" is not become about grades any more. I have had a 3.8 gpa in all courses I have ever taken. 115 credits worth. (those required for nursing and those required for other associates I have) I test in high percentile for tests; and every yr its a canned rejection letter about competitiveness, limited seats.. blah blah.. and it's buloney, it is a total lottery pick over the inundated number of applications.. competitive over what ? the true test of whether you become a stellar nurse is how you do in the actual programs and how you hack it in the real world after NOT whether you passed arithmetic or got an A in psychology , English and anatomy. it is important to know your ass from your elbow, but getting accepted into the program has not "made" anyone a competent nurse. So the fact that you have to jump through hoops of fire just to GET IN at broke state colleges is ridiculous. People are so quick to assume an expensive college is a scam. not really, you get what you pay for. CCRI you get to share one simulated dummy with 20 other students and get taught by a teacher who is resentful of her salary, and could care less about whether you succeed because the colleges know how many more students are desperately waiting to hop in your seat. They don't even follow their own protocol where "you" think you have worked so hard to study to get good grades in classes that have nothing to do with the daily duties of a nurse, but was enough to get in the program; know that the person next to you that got in had C's in classes that required a B-. No thanks I'll take the teacher that was a nurse for 25 yrs., who chose to teach students her knowledge at a campus where I get my own 25k simulated patient that I can practice skills on as much as I need to.. after all I paid for it..
