Well, an update. Im enrolled at St. Joseph's School of Practical Nursing :-) Yaaaaaay. I went yesterday for the information exchange and also met with the financial aid person. I passed the Math test they gave us.......so, I am *in* :-) I still cant believe it. Got the book list, schedule for September and the invoice for payment
I cant believe how quickly this whole process was. I started a while back applying to St. Joes and had all of my things into them except for my Net test. At that point, I decided I was going to go with a different school because it was a shorter program, didnt take the summers off (yes, a nightmare for me also with three kids.....I was hopefully going to switch to the night program during the summer months). Turns out that they werent an accredited school(after being told by the state and the school they were).
I quickly called St. Joes last week...monday. They said that it was too late, the last net test was scheduled for Wednesday and I wouldnt be able to get in.......but I said AHA! I took it already can i send my scores? I would need to hurry. I overnighted them, they got them on Wednesday. They already hade my references, application,etc. On Friday of last week I got my letter saying I met all the requirements. Called Monday to set up an interview and had that on thursday..yesterday. So, its been two weeks. Im in shock
I hope I can make it through.
Oh...also, they do have that arrangement with Riv but its for the night program. Riv reserves seats for St. Joes in the night class which is part time. I dont see why one couldnt try to get into the day program regardless. Actually, I have someone at work who went through St. Joes and is going full time for her RN at Riv. For ADN...RN, going part time it takes 2 years. Good info to tuck away for future reference. One step at a time
Good luck to you at Riv!!! It is so exciting :-)
