    congrats to whoever made the thinking of applying but I took all my prerequisites in Seattle..Do they try to take students who did their prereqs at Kingsborough.

    ALso what is the average GPA they consider and what test do you need to take.I took the HESI and TEAS in Seattle..Thanks for any info.

    They do take accept transfer credits. However you have to take the course Science 25 which is a Kingsborough specific course before you can apply to the clinical portion of the nursing program.

    They also require you to take the NLN exam. The tests you took may help but I'm not sure.

    I would say the avg GPA they consider is around a 3.0. They also accepted a lot of students this year conditionally who had poorer grades.

    Best of luck.

    thanks for your response.They really accepted 3.0??Ive applied to 5 different schools in WA., and have been rejected from all.I have a 3.7 and 90 on the HESI..Its just not good enough to get in anywhere here.

    im originally from NY so thought i would come back,but I would have to become a state resident again..

    They look at your GPA in 2 ways. Your overall GPA and then your GPA in the specific prerequisites for the program: English 1, Psych 1, Anatomy & Physiology 1, and Science 25. You probably want around a 3.0 overall but closer to a 3.5 in the prereqs.

    There is no base NLN score you need to get to be considered. Your score is weighed against all the other applicatns. So say for example if this semester a 130 was a strong score but next semester a lot of people scored in the 140s/150s then that 130 doesn't hold up as well. Or it can swing the opposite way.

    There's a lot of good schools in NY.

    Hey Mikey, Thanks for all the info- you've been a great help on this board.

    I direct transferred to City Tech this semester, but good luck to you all!!!

    I didn't find A&P 1 hard, but I took good notes and didn't text during class like almost everyone that ended up dropping the class did. If you pay attention, you will get an A, even with Professor Ho. There are no surprises on his exams; everything that is on them was covered in class. You'll take the other prereqs- Eng 12 and Psy 11... Sci 25 isn't until next semester after you change curriculums.

    I attend citu tech. I know that in order to be accepted fot Nursing you need to attend Citytech for one semester prior. Also they don't use the nln

    I took a total of 12 credits the semester I took A&P I. I got a really good grade in A&P. It's a hard question to answer. A person has to know their level of endurance and their limits. There is ALOT of memorization in this class.

    Hi Rajacic,

    I took the exam this month. How did you do? Have you heard from anyone who took it with us? I am so nervous, feel like two weeks wait is too torturing.
