I just joined allnurses because I finally got all my prerequisites done and dropped my application off at MHCC in December! Fingers crossed! I have a Bachelor's from 1996 in an unrelated subject. And started back at school once my kids were established in their schools. I've taken all the nursing prereq's at MHCC.
What are everyone's stats? Where did you apply? Only MHCC so far... But in order of preference, MHCC, OHSU (accelerated, I know, I have to wait a year now), OHSU traditional BSN, and Concordia ABSN.
What is your GPA? I have a 4.0 at MHCC, but I did count a B in writing from U of Portland on my application.
Do you have work experience>? No experience as a provider, just a patient and parent. I used to work for a medical supply company and I'm familiar with equipment like infusion pumps and ventilators (testing and maintaining them).
Did you do any preinterview point calculations? I'm guessing around 53 points. I'm not 100% sure how they calculate the 40 points for your GPA, I know it is your grade and how many the hours the class is in some sort of linear equation. So I guesstimated 35 (I had 1 B and then opted out of the 2nd writing class).
Where would you like to go? #1 choice MHCC because I live nearby and it is my most affordable option :-)
Good luck to everyone!
