    pre-admissions exams, similiarities...

    well... i finished studying my "generic" pre-admissions exam study guide. i was wondering, how similar these pre-entrance tests are? the TEAS, RNET, HESI, KAPLAN, etc... i applied for (approx.) 20 campuses and i have to take (4) different exams prior to admissions. anybody done similar? i purchased (1) for the TEAS, HESI, and my generic book. does each exam focus on a certain aspects/topics than another?
  8. after reading... i still am unsure what exactly approved vs. accreditation is. once i finish this program at Concorde Career institute... will i able able to travel to another state to further my education? BSN, MSN, etc...? also, is this program only recognized in Florida.

LoL... help? what type of questions will be asked... thanks in advance.

    low GPA different major

    Thanks in advance for assistance/advice~! My situation: I currently hold a Bachelors' in Business and completed all science (pre-nursing) prerequisites at a local (California) community college. I received (1) C... while (A's) in other courses. To complicate issues, my Bachelors GPA totally suck (2.0 status). I ultimately want an MSN; but given the situation, a direct route is not possible. Anybody in here transitioning from another major? What was your GPA when accepted?

    difference emt and nurse

    As far as skill sets, are there differences between the knowledge of a nurse vs. an EMT (first responder)? If so, what are they? Is it necessary to obtain a license in both? Basically, can I manage a patient/victim similarly with either/or education? I am in school for nursing, however... I want to be -prepared-. Do/Should i need a EMT certification? Thanks, I appreciate it.
