    Free CNA training

    Can I ask what the pay range is for a CNA at Millers? I'd really like to get into it, but if it would mean taking a pay cut from where I am at now, its not worth it.

    Now with NLNAC accreditation, it may be easier for credits to transfer. You may want to look into it again!

    Ivy Tech 'Fall 2010' Applicants

    Well I got my rejection letter(s) last Friday but it was to be expected with a 188 (two Bs and two As, 85 TEAS). But heck after reading these Lawrence cutoffs I am glad I decided to step back from nursing! Congrats to all those who were accepted!!! I was accepted by IUPUI and will officially be starting my BSW this fall!

    I will be ending up with a B in 101. BLECH! Leaving me at 188 points. We will see what the letter says come June, but I know I will not be getting into RN for sure and LPN is kinda distant. I've actually been doing a little soul searching lately and since I won't be getting in RN, I am almost 100% positive I will be transferring to IUPUI to start working on a BSW. It's really taking a toll on me to maybe get into a program and I really cannot take any more time to get something rolling. I know that eventually down the road I can go back for my BSN, and getting a degree in social work still allows me to do what my passion is- helping others and making a difference. I am hoping to eventually hold a masters in both! I'll stick around through letters and see how everything goes, but I would be very surprised to see me stick around much longer.

    It all depends on the applicant pool

    Ugh 39/50 on my lab I didn't realize I missed that many! I have SEVEN points to work with now to keep an A. Meaning I have like 240 points possible remaining in the course and can ONLY miss 7 Blah. I feel this slipping away.

    Ok, Fine... no Ivy Tech... Love of nursing!

    i'm sorry...i really wasn't trying to be rude. i have the tendency to not watch my tone online lol. i'm just being honest with you, to tell the truth. i'm really glad (sincerely) that you have faith. you need it! i'm just saying, that from my experience these past two years, those specific grades don't make it in. however, i did preface that in the other thread by also saying that it is dependent upon the applicant pool. i never said i am in. i'm waiting for my letter just like you, and i applied with what will hopefully be three as and one b. i highly doubt i will get in. i really do wish you luck :redbeathe @is5512- most likely, yes. mainly because of the flexibility i have and the multiple campuses i can attend. i don't have any issues with the school though. with the exception of one prof, i've loved all of my teachers and thoroughly enjoy my classes. itcc also doesn't charge an app fee which was a big deal for me :) can't afford to spend $40 per school!

    Explain myself? I'm a student that's been at Ivy Tech for 2 years now. Its not hard to figure out the average score that is expected for the ASN/LPN program. Most of us on here know what to shoot for and what we need to work on to increase our score. The information is readily available to students...

    Just a rant

    Oh yes, so pointless...

    Umm Ivy Tech is $95 a credit hour and it will be going up for the 2010 school year. I'm not going to throw you a pity party. It sucks that your experience doesn't get you anywhere, but you WANT to be a nurse? Then get the grades to do so. There are PLENTY of other students who are killing themselves to get amazing grades, and getting all As is completely possible. You will not find another program that is going to really expect anything less than maybe a 3.8 GPA wise for pre reqs. Retake the classes. Complaining about "perfect grades" isn't going to do anything for you. You should look into taking the IVY 101 class...gives you resources to control your own destiny rather than sit back and let something else control it.
  16. ^^ that's not true. With three Bs and one A it is probably unlikely that she would get in with a 178 total. OP- any nursing school you find is going to have stringent requirements such as this. Most will require a 4.0 GPA.
