  1. Good Morning Nurses, Has anyone completed the nursing program at NU or currently in the program? I got accepted and wanted to know more about it. I'm super excited. Also what are the job outlooks in Vermont and starting pay for a new grad nurse?

    Hawaii Pacific University (HPU) - Spring 2019 Acceptance

    Yeah, this user has been making rude comments on Hawaii Nursing Schools. We do not need that here. This is supposed to be a positive community for nurses/students to come together and build each other. Not brag and break others down due to test scores or for choosing a certain program they wish to desire. Period.

    Carson Newman Spring 2020

    I just got notified that I got into the traditional BSN program for Carson Newman! Has anybody else got accepted into Carson Newmans Nursing program? For current or previous nursing students, what is your input for the program? What Can I prepare for? Any tips or advice?

    Thinking about starting pre-reqs this month.

    Try taking classes through American Public University or University of Phoenix. They are good and transfer but always do your research and make sure you check that they transfer to the school you want to apply for. Portage learning is another good one that lets you work at your own pace. Get into a good study habit and try to work on TEAS or HESI practice test. This will only benefit you. Some programs require this test before getting into the program. You can have a solid GPA and TEAS but if your scores aren’t to the standard then you may not have a chance. I’m working on bringing up my TEAS score as well. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me.

    Any Hawaii Pacific University BSN Graduates

    Do they look at the other area for acceptance? Because I have everything done and have a pretty good GPA and pre-req grades. I just didn’t do as great on the TEAS. I got 58.7%, do I still have a chance?

    Is this for Me?

    It is never to late! When I worked as a CNA there were some new GRAD RN'S that were around there mid 40's. Having another degree is great and you have that diversity and knowledge you can probably share within the hospital/clinic or wherever you go from there. Take the courses you need and apply for nursing programs and in the mean time volunteer or get your CNA license. That will help.

    Maybe Clinicals instructor doesn't like men

    I say try to talk to her and see if things can work out. Bring in someone else so there is an witness for eyes/ear of evidence in case SHE goes back on her word or whatsoever. If that does not work, speak to your other program instructors/faculty personnel and see what they say and how they can fix this situation.

    Do I even have a chance

    I say retake it again. I know exactly how you feel. I did amazing in my pre-reqs and overall GPA is pretty high. However I got a 58.7% on my teas. I plan to retake it, I need a 70% or better. Don't let this discourage you in any way, shape or form.
  11. national guard goes by state, and it VARIES on what openings they have. For my state, they have no openings for nurses to begin with. Your best bet is to go reserves and give it a shot. Reserves is federal government and they have a lot more openings. You can try contact a NG state OSM or reserves you would contact a career counselor/AMEDD recruiter. Sorry not not too much help but I figure pitch in the knowledge I know from being a guardsmen.

    Joining AD after college as a 66T/ER nurse???

    Was there no college rotc at your school? You can join as a DC (direct commission) and go AD or USAR. But for a 66T you would need to have couple years of ER experience. If anything you’ll start off like the rest of us a 66H (med surg nurse).

    Patho online

    Thank you so much for this! I think I’m going to look into this. UOP (university of phoenix) has a course too and it’s somewhat similar. Weighing out the options. Better over prepared then underprepared right?

    Patho online

    I’m basically done with my nursing pre-reqs and finishing some general ed requirements. Have anyone took patho online? Is there any online patho class available? I will have to take it in the nursing program but I want to have a taste of patho before starting the program. i did well on my pre-reqs and have CNA experience. Just want to stay up to date and be fully prepared for nursing school.

    Carson Newman FNP

    I’m also looking for more info about Carson Newman. I plan to transfer as a traditional student and apply for the traditional BSN program. Please let let me know if you find any info about the school. From what I hear they are a great school! The admissions people are super friendly and helpful and they keep in touch with you. Also, spoke to one of the nursing advisors and he was amazing! He walked me through and answered the questions I needed.

    Liberty University

    I wish I saw this earlier! Yes it’s a bummer they changed the requirements again. Now they require the HESI-A2 and the patho. Everything else I have done and complete. I was going to take the summer accelerated. How much students do they usually take in?
