tbutler5's Latest Activity

  1. Letters for the fall went out. Did you get in?
  2. It's intense but they had a 100% NCLEX pass rate for last semesters graduating class so that's to be expected. I don't know how it compares to anywhere else though.
  3. Hi! I can answer question #1 as I was just admittied for the fall 2018 program. A new points system started for the fall so the previous poster would have had points on the old system so they wouldn't match up to be comparable with now. I had 21 points. I got a 24 on my ACT giving me 9 and A's in AP1, Micro, and General Psych giving me 12 more points. I don't beleive they give anything extra for having a previous bachelor's degree anymore. Since I haven't actually started yet I don't know about how many men are in the program cumulative but there was a man in my A&P class that was accepted for the fall as well so that's one! LOL. As for age range, he was in his mid 40's, I'm early 40's. But based on my peers in class, the age range is broad. Kids as young as 19 to people in their 50's. Hope that helps some. I'm happy to follow up once I get started :) Good luck to you!

    Columbia State CC Fall 2018

    Looking for other individuals that applied for the fall 2018 program at Columbia State. Waiting on my acceptance letter (hopefully) with great anticipation!
  6. I just came across this thread. How are you all doing now? You would be in your second semester now right? My application for the fall 2018 program was submitted yesterday. Since its a new points structure I have no idea what to expect. I have a 23 on my ACT which gives me 9 points, 4 points for an A in A&P1, 3 points for an A in microbiology, and 3 points for an A in General Psych giving me 19 total. My GPA is a 3.79. I wish I had a clue as to where I stand. Hoping some other applicants find this and will chime in!
  7. Have you all submitted your applications yet? I'm working on mine now. It is so stressful not knowing where the cutoff to acceptance will fall! Right now I'm sitting at 19 points and a 3.79 GPA. I took the residual ACT at CState and scored a 23 so I get 9 points for that. I just took the National ACT this past Saturday. If I scored any higher my points will increase but I'm not feeling too good about that happening. I got 4 points for an A in AP1, 3 points for an A in micro, and 3 points for an a in Gen Psych. I'm in the middle of AP2 this semester but that won't count on this application unfortunately. I'll be 40 this year so I am ready to get going with this. I really don't want to have to apply again in the fall. Anyway, how are you all feeling about the process and your points? Good luck everyone!
  8. I'm a little late coming across this post. Did either of you apply for the Spring 2018 or are you planning for Fall of 2018? Curious to know if you were accepted with these points. I will be applying in the Spring for the Fall program.

    Working full-time while going to school

    I am in the same boat. My state passed the same bill allowing adults to return to school to finish their degree if they don't already have one. I am in Tennessee. I'll be taking some pre-reqs this fall/spring and hope to start the nursing program in the fall of 2018. I have a family (husband and four kids) that depend on my income to make ends meet so I'll need to continue working as many hours as possible. I am a medical coder currently and work from home so I do have some flexibility but I know it is going to be extremely tough getting all the hours in. But I feel that if my family can weather the next few years it will be worth it on the backside. I'm a nervous but I'm also determined to succeed.
