    Montefiore School of Nursing spring 2019

    At one of the Montefiore Hospitals. The class will be split up into groups for clínicals and each group will go to a different hospital. It’ll be either Moses, Weiler, Mt. Vernon Hospital, or New Rochelle Hospital.

    Hi guys! Its been a while! Lol I’m seeing all the anxiety in your postings in my inbox and thought it’d be a good time to chime in, plus it gives me a quick break from N2 and having my head explode lol. Everyone is worried about test scores and I understand. We had 40 students accepted to our class and I’ve spoken to many and if I had to guess, I’d say 10-15 scored in the 80s, we’ve heard of one in 90s (still trying to find out who? Lol), but the majority seems like they were in the 70s, and I think 1-2 were in 60s. As others have mentioned, as I have heard, they look at your whole body of work, not just one thing. I know two people who applied before and both got 75s but one had 4 prereqs missing and had grades of Bs/C+s and she was rejected and the other only had one missing prereq plus her grades were mostly A’s and B’s so she was accepted. I know it’s a cliche but seriously, there’s no point in trying to figure out the admission process because it’ll just cause more stress and anxiety. It seems like you guys are close to finding out about admission so just hang tight :). Good luck to everyone!

    Why is there a 7 year limit on prerequisites for nursing?

    I read your post and response and am stunned by your logic and lack of common sense. According to your logic, a nursing school should accept your pre-reqs no matter if you took them a year ago or 20 years ago. So, a microbio book from 1985 has the same information as one from today? So, today we have the same knowledge about viruses (HIV, herpes, etc), bacteria, etc. that we did 10, 20, etc years ago?? To compare this content to engineering is preposterous. Engineering is heavy on math and 2x2=4 today and it will equal 4 a thousand years from now. Medical science on the other hand constantly evolves especially new discoveries of viruses/bacteria, physiology, cancer cells, etc. which happen all the time. When I applied for MBA programs, all the top programs required the GMAT entrance exam and I'm glad I took it because it helped prepare me for the rigorous program. A few smaller programs waived the GMAT and I suspect it was because they have to compete for students (and money) with other more established MBA programs. I suspect the nursing schools that waive these 7/10 year requirements also do it for the same or a similar reason. Instead of whining about "the system," maybe you should focus on how to get accepted and put yourself in the best position to succeed or consider another career choice. So, you're considering legal ramifications against these schools? Good luck with that...

    Just wanted to share this with you guys since it came to mind. I remember a problem that gave you 4 sets of equations like the one below (as an example) and you have to figure out which is correct. I'm sure these types of problems are still showing up but the guys that took the test today would know better. So, if you're asked if the below is correct, how do you know? 688 1376 —— = ——— 898 1796 One of the easiest ways to do this is to take out any number you want and replace it with an X and cross-multiply and then divide to see if it’s correct. So I’m going to take out 688 (randomly chosen) and replace it with an X so my equation will be this: x 1376 ——— = ——— 898 1796 then cross-multiply to get this equation: 1796X = 1,235,648 Once I divide both sides by 1796, X should equal 688, which it does. 688 1376 —— = ——— 898 1796 So, this equation would be correct
