Now the waiting begins.....

So, yesterday was the deadline for applying to the Ivy Tech RN program. NOW THE WAITING BEGINS! In my understanding, it will be late may before we hear anything. Yikes! I don't think I'll have any fingernails left by then...I'll bite them all off! (Maybe I'll have to go buy some). I gues now I just have to focus all my energy on maintaining my A in ANP 102 to be sure I get in. Anyone else a bit nervous?

:wtosts:

You guys have a much longer wait then the transitional students. We wait anywhere from 2-5 weeks for our notice.

Thats the hard part......the wait.

Been there, done that.......only advice I can give you is stay busy and focus on your ANP.

You can do it!!!!

I'm here waiting with you. I am finishing up ANP 102 too. I am also doing 3 other classes that are co reqs . You wouldn't think I would have time to obsess about the "Letter" but somehow I do!!

Hurry up June!

I'm in the same boat. I have A's in all the pre-reqs and I'm taking ANP201 and Micro now. After these two, I'm completely finished with all co-reqs and have nothing but Nursing core left.

Tick-tock!!!! My fingernails are already gone, btw. Chewed them all off in the 2 days before I took the TEAS. I'm not good at waiting. I need to know -now- if my scores are good enough to get me in at Indy.:uhoh21:

With all A's and a great TEAS score, I am positive your a shoe-in for the course!

I was accepted to Indy with 3 A's, 1 B, and an 84.2% TEAS.

Of course, everyone can tell you that but if your like I was, you need to see that letter.

Just keep thinking.................yeeeeeeeeeehawwwwwwww, I'm going to school!

Brenda :yeah:

I am waiting too!! I applied to Ivy Tech Bloomington for Fall 08. Luckily Im going to Florida for 2 weeks (may 14-28) so I will have something to keep my mind occupied! I am telling my mom to call me if I get ANYTHING from ivy tech and to open it if i happen to still be there! best of luck to everyone!!! the wait begins.....

Awww.....I miss Florida! I grew up in Tampa and used to drive down once a year for vacation. With gas prices being what they are, I had to give that up =(

My mailman is gonna hate me before this is all over! LOL

Exactly!!!!

I have really been trying to just give it over and not worry about it, but it's taking some work.

Heather, I am envious at least you can't pester the mailman while you are in FL.:lol2:

Good Luck! to all of us!!!!

I am flying cause my car could not make it there haha. My boyfriend is stationed there in the Air Force and he gets out in June..soo excited! We've been doing the long distance thing for 4 years. I try to fly there as much as my bank account will allow, and sometimes he will pay for my ticket.

I think I have an average chance of getting in... I have 3 A's and 1 B and got at 82% on my TEAS. If the rumors are right and they are only taking 10 traditional RN people in Bloomington my chances are slim to none. I applied to the LPN program as well as a potential back up.

Who knows....it just depends on how everyone else did!!!:anbd:

I applied to the LPN program too, Heather.

I really want to get into the RN program because it is a part-time evening class. I will be able to continue at my current job. They are taking 20 for it. Just about everybody in my ANP 102 class has applied.

But, I will be happy if I get into the LPN too. I just want to get in somewhere. LOL! i need a starting point!

It's tough but we have to stay positive!!!

IMAGINE yourself in that room with all those practice dummies, inserting catheters and stuff!...and all the other students oohing and ahhing over your "nursely" talent!!! LOL!!!

WE will get in!!

Heather, you may want to try Indy and Columbus also. I know Indy took 30 last fall but they are supposed to be taking more this Fall. They also do a Spring entry class as well....not sure if B-town does that or not. Only taking 10????? Geez!!!!! That stinks~!

Does anyone know what the clinicals are like? I'm trying to prepare as early as possible for my kids. If I have to be at clinicals at 6:30 in the morning, I will have to find someone to get my kids off to school. Anyone know if we have an option to choose clinical days and times? If I was able to be at clinicals at 8 am or 9, that would be awesome. 6:30 is gonna be really hard for me being a single parent of 4.

I of course don't know but, I'd love to hear how clinicals are at different campuses.

I know that many of the LPN clinicals at Logan start at 6:30 am

I'd really like to find out some info about clinicals also. My son is 12, but he has some medical problems and I can't really just have him get himself off to school. Being able to plan far ahead would be a good thing! Anyone know what it's like in Richmond?

I have three boys that are 10,9 and 6 and my daughter is 3. They go to an Edison school here in Indy. My oldest two catch the bus at 6:45. My Kindy boy's bus comes at 7:50 and I have to drop my little off at school anytime between 7:30 and 8:30. If they all went to school at the same time, my mornings would be sooooo much easier!! My fiance is going to see if he can come in an hour late one day a week once clinicals start. Of course, that will only help me if clinicals are one day a week.

I am pretty sure that you do not get to choose clinical days and times. I have a few friends that are in the ASN program and they did not get to choose when they took the classes and clinicals. You basically have to plan your life around that schedule. Luckily I do not have children. They need to make it more flexible for those who do. I could not imagine balancing kids and nursing school. I look up to those of you who are going to!!!:bow:

THanks for the advice!! Currently I live in Muncie so I couldnt attend all of the information sessions in those areas. I am moving to Bloomington this summer so thats the only one i went to. Hopefully the rumors are false. A couple people said they reserve most spots for transitional students. I guess we will see!! :bugeyes: its going to drive me crazy!!! Its a good thing I found this website!

I've been searching all over the internet for the last couple hours trying to find info on the clinical times. No dice so far. This is really gonna drive me nuts until I find out.

Just got back from orientation at B-town.

Clinicals start at 7am. You have to be on the floor and ready to go at 6:45am.

Unfortunately with clinical times, it's not just the school that decides what times students can be there. Clinical space is very hard to find since it is very competitive, especially in Indianapolis. Clinicals at Ivy Tech Indy may start anywhere from 630a-7am. Start earlier, get out earlier and avoid traffic. Start later, stay later and run into traffic. There are occasional clinicals that start at 12pm or 1pm based on no availability earlier in the morning. Gotta go with what's available. Lots of times no one knows what times clinicals start until the week before since the hospitals don't get back until late. It can be very frustrating for everyone, since we have to plan our lives.
