    Lone Star College 2019 LVN to RN transition

    I got into Kingwood with a 7.74 back in 2016 and into North Harris this year with a 7.71. Top tier is going to be around 7.8 and bottom of the rung is going to be 7-7.1. If you can land somewhere in there, you're golden. Keep in mind though that some schools are more competitive than others. Montgomery, for example, is documented one year as having their transition cutoff at around 7.5, which is pretty crazy.
  2. Again I just want to say thank you for giving me the information regarding the colleges pre-requisites. I will be applying for Spring next year! Good luck on your nursing journey! And I love Houston!

    "Ummmm" was exactly right for me too! That would put me at 3 days a week at work and 4 days a week with school. No spank you. I actually put Northwest down as my first choice because even though it is the furthest drive for me, it is with Dr. Crawford and I have heard from more than one person that she is AMAZING. You lucked out!

    I got 2 emails from Juanita. One regarding enrollment and the other reminding us about orientation tomorrow. Looks like we will be in class on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and they have our assignments down for clinicals as well. I got clinical with Nwankwo at Kingwood on Mondays. Although, it says both days, Monday and Tuesday, I'm pretty sure that is just a clerical thing, as I don't think we actually have clinicals two days a week. Or maybe I'm wrong and.......crap.

    Yah, I just received the same email this morning. Already emailed in my preference. I'm surprised they aren't offering a Saturday option for clinicals for people who work M-F.

    Oh how awesome. Glad you found us on the forum. Looking forward to it as well. How have things been for you guys so far? My cousin graduates next month from NH and she loved the basic track ADN program.

    So did mine. So I downloaded the form provided and uploaded it. It got rejected and said that they also wanted a "Consent to Treat" form as well, which they did not provide. When I spoke to them, they said the campus wants it but did not provide it to them. I contacted the campus and got a less than enthused response. I will attach a screenshot of what my Castle Branch looks like after I submitted and got rejected. Ignore the 1, 2 and 3 labels. I used those when I emailed Juanita at NH to reference what CB had told me.

    This is correct. If you are already an LVN, you have already been through the fingerprinting and background process. Unless you have had something change with your background check since becoming an LVN, you won't have to do anything. They will automatically send the blue card. Same thing happened to me in 2016 at the KW transition, although they said they received my blue card at the campus, I never received my copy from the BoN.

    Just a heads up to everyone who will be uploading documents to Castle Branch in the coming days, you too will encounter this problem with item #13. It requests the Emergency Medical Information form, as well as the Consent to Treat form, but only provides the former. I called Castle Branch yesterday and they said that the college did not provide the Consent to Treat form to them. I called and emailed Juanita at NH to let her know we weren't able to complete the Castle Branch requirements. She emailed me back, exactly this: "Good morning Casey, we will look into this" So..there you go....

    Is anybody else encountering this problem with Castle Branch? On the upload page, where it lists "Emergency Contact and Medical Information Form", I uploaded the form provided by the website. They rejected it stating I have only submitted the medical information form, asking for me to resubmit with the authorization to treat form. I can't see anywhere where the authorization to treat form is provided. I just tried to call Castle Branch and go figure, the only day of the week they are closed is Saturday.

    I wonder if/when they will inform those of us who do and do not need to go through said process?

    Lab practicals? Did someone say, lab practicals? What are those like??? We had nothing like that in the Kingwood transition.
