    What you people don't understand? LICH peronel themselves don't know what is going to happen . In this situation what do you want them to answer to you? It is above their control because the control is taken by Downstate institution...If you want answers contact Downstate institution and find out what is going on.

    "miscommunication and confusion" it is a normal state of mind at that particular nursing school... So, better get used to it!

    Fara01, what is that mean? You paid your application fee and submitted documents till the deadline, now they do not accept any new students? They will not have any freshmen groups this fall or what , or they already have formed groups and to not want to look at new candidates, or No RN program this fall in general because of downstate and legal issues? Thanks.

    I took all of the prerequisites at St Francis but they never offered Micro at night! I'm soo scared that I get accepted and don't have Micro!! -- LICH takes people with missing prerequsits with agreement that a person will get it done till graduation. Right now summer time is coming and some colleges offer Micro during the summer. You have to research CUNY system and do it asap. Also, consider CLEP program. Some people did that. LICH basically accepts students on individual bases. Some people are missing more than 1 prerequisit. PS. for some reason LICH has less competition for evening group than for day program. However, not many colleges in the city can offer that option.

    I just finished evening nursing program at LICH and I am very happy! There is a lot of problems in organization, but if your goal is to finish RN program, I think a goal fit for the purpose. Evening progam is more manageable than day program in terms of a workload. Most people still can work and study. The program is intense that is why I preffered evening group , at the end the outcome is the same=> completing the program, the same diploma as any other nursing school would give you... It is not only about money and time but also your health. A lot of stress, but that stress is not even close if you would go to other competitiv RN school. In some other schools they will screw you up over the top without regards and regrets about you. They will make your life like a hell, that is what I herd from other students from other RN programs. LICH is not perfect, but it is managable.

    I got the letter a couple of weeks after the interview last year. However, you have to go to the office and make sure that they got all your paperwork. Many people did not get accepted because the office lost some of their paperwork or did not get it.

    From KBCC to Hunter College or......

    When Nursing Recruiters, Hospitals and or the public hear that you graduated from Kingsborough with a degree in NURSING, they are very impressed!! -- Hahahhaaa...verrry funnny! It just is a myth. My friend had finished in Spring 2008 the nursing program at KCC. Out of 105 students finished less than 30 !!! Nice percentage! Also, when she was looking for a job nobody from requiters cared what institution she gradulated from. What they were interested was wether she had BSN or else.
  8. My comment was about Kingsborough CC at Brooklyn, NY.
  9. Do you want to know chances to finish the program at KCC? I had friends at KCC. Out of 105 people 2 years back, completed the program around 27 people.. Each semester on average 20 people fail. That is a real statistic as you can get. Also, as far as I know KCC Nursing faculty not happy that students do not pass 100% on NCLEX , the number is around 83-86%, so they planning to rise the passing grade to 78%. NICE! AND STUDENTS GET TREATED LIKE A DIRT.

    When I took NET test in April and May I had the same reading material as you, about nacturnal and day people and ear structure... :) I wonder what is the source of those readings?

    You will be a great nurse, Santos! I like people like you. Sometimes, if you think there is nothing unusual , some guy helps out others, but in reality there is not so many caring people. Everyone is consumed in their own world thinking that I already have enough problems, why bother about somebody else!!! The reality is more positive things you give out, more positive things retune to you. :clpty:

    Thanks, Csantos for advise about rent the books. Can you , please, tell me more about that. I never thought about renting textbooks, but if we consider that publishers reprint any other year books just only adding a couple of pages, it is really a bad idea to buy books and spent hundreds of dollars on them. As English is a second language for you , I can advise you to consider Franklin electronic speaking dictionary (Merriam-Webster's collegiate Dictionary) It is just wonderful. I was carrying it throughout my college. You can consider models isbn 9781590744185 or ISBN 1590741749 Also, they have a thesaurus part which I used a lot. I bought them around 40 at ebay. I'm right know in process looking for the books. Therefore, i will be considering to rent some books. I need more information on that.

    Hello, CSantos! How you get ready for your nursing program? Iid you get your vaccines/? Do you have to buy a bunch of books? :) The best advise for test takers--read what CSantos tels you to do. You have to get used to popular scientific literature. That is what you will get on reading part. To RCastro: when I took second time test, the test WAS THE SAME including math and reading section. Now you have an advantage you know what will be on a test. Aknowledge mistakes made and go over your them.

    All About the NET

    Hi, FutureNurse23! I did not have problems with the inference or outcome prediction. I understood all about a paragraph in theory. I used my knowledge on the test, but I did not have time to summarize all the paragraphs in the passage to extract the main idea of the passage, even though I tried to reason looking at the title of the passage and skimming the first paragraph and afterwards a whole text. There was not enough time. However, I'm on the program now because I took NLN and did well. The accumulative score on NLN made a difference . I took NET 2x and did not pass a reading part. Good luck to all you guys!
  16. Why everyone is so quite here? Ho got accepted? Ho got rejected or put on a waiting list?
