    Be sure to know your sciences...again. Be sure to know your sciences, read lots of books and enhance your vocabulary.
    ISBN-13: 978-0763762711 is a must have; it is the NLN Pre-entrance exam study guide. Know, know know your math...amongst other section. "English from the Roots Up Flashcards" might also breaking down words.
    If you know the study guide, you should do very well. Study extensively and thoroughly and take all the tests that are inside of the book. Learn from your mistakes.

    I talked to someone in the red area today and she said there is a waiting list. And I have to do all my prerequisites (Eng 101, Chem 101, Mth 100, Soc 101, Psy 101, and Bio 121) before even thinking about applying to the nursing program. I thought there was only three prerequisites. And MTH 92 was one of them not 100? She told me to wait a year then apply.

    Next semester I'm taking Chem 101, Eng 101, and BIO 121. I thought I'd be able to apply in June or July in hope of getting into the evening program January 2013.

    Go to the Blue Area or the allied health/nursing building. You will get better information from there.

    You absolutely can take your pre-reqs in January, and then test in September for the evening. It is exactly what i did. Pre reqs are Bio 121, Eng 101 amd Chem 101 or 103. I am actually taking Soc 101 right now. I have alreay taken Psy 101 and Math 100 is not a pre req (although i have taken it). If you plan on getting into the program be sure to do exceptionally in you pre reqs as well as on the exam.

    As LapoRtan said, you will get better info from the Nursing Dept or Blue area.

    When is the test if you want to enter the evening program? When is the test if you want to enter the day program? I just finished my pre-requisites and handed in my application.

    Does anyone know where clinicals are being held if you get into the nursing program? I do not drive and rely on public transportation so I'd like to get a rough estimate of where clinicals are so I can plan accordingly.
