    GBCC- Fall 2012 Great Bay applicants...

    Has anyone heard from the admissions folks yet for Fall GBCC nursing? From what I've read here on allnurses, letters were being received by this date the last couple years...

    USM ABSN Summer 2012

    I got my letter yesterday(12/7)... And I'm in! I'm really sorry to those who didn't get a favorable response. Good luck with your other applications. To those who were asking about admissions specifics: 3.82 gpa ten yrs ago, lots of real world exp. virtually none of it in health care, good solid essay, A's in A&P 1, Stat's, and Lifespan at time of app & finishing A&P 2 now. Looking forward to hearing from others also accepted for summer 2012! Good luck.

    USM accelerated BSN May 2011

    Hi there USM Accelerated students! I found this thread and was hoping I could ask you about your experience in the program thus far? (Or anyone else who graduated earlier from the accel. program too of course). I was recently accepted for a May 2012 start and I am trying to figure out how I'll do with the really aggressive coarseload and just the program as a whole. Please, any and all insight you feel like sharing would be very much appreciated! Thanks so much!

    GBCC 2011 Hopefuls

    Thanks for the replies everyone!--very much appreciated. :) I've received confirmation that NLN is, in fact, changing the reports they send and there is no longer and "ALL" column. There is just that column I previously mentioned labeled "Relative Performance" which I got the 97, 98, and 91. I'm thinking I'll just feel good about those scores going into the admissions process and save the $70 on another NLN test. Hopefully the 91 won't bite me in the butt. The admissions person said that most people accepted have all three scores in the 90's so I hope I'm not being overconfident in my scores. Thanks again everyone. Cheers.

    --Got an explanation about why my report is different: just talked to someone awesome at GBCC who said that apparently NLN is changing the report they send. They are going to need to figure out which numbers they will use for the selection process.

    I'm trying to figure out whether to take the NLN again but it's a hard decision since I don't really know for sure which numbers Great Bay will be looking at. If they are going by the 90-90-71 then I need to take it again. If it's the 98-97-91 I think I should(?) be good. Plus, I'm told that the February test (the only one I can take before the application deadline) fills fast and I need to book myself into it right away.

    Hi Libby- I'm not sure... I was expecting the detailed report that you are referring to from the example I saw in my NLN study guide and also from everything I've read online, but the report I got from NLN (a month late and only after multiple phone calls and emails) only has three columns of info: - # Items -% Correct Score -Relative Performance In the text above the chart, it says: "Your relative performance on each of these sections as compared to a reference group of applicants to RN nursing programs is provided as a percentile rank, which ranges from 0 to 99 and indicates what proportion of the reference group earned scores lower than yours." Since I was expecting a more detailed report (with an "ALL" category) I called NLN and a not very friendly lady just said "That's the only report you will receive." I asked if the school got the more detailed one and she said yes. Kinda strange, huh?

    Thanks for writing. You're right, it's hard to know what the applicant pool will be like in any given year. I think I'll head to a nursing info session next week and see if it helps me make up my mind about taking the test again and also help me decide about choosing between USM's accel program and GBCC. Have you had a good experience so far at Great Bay? Congratulations on not only being accepted but being half done! Good luck to you too! If anyone else who was accepted feels like letting me know how they did on the NLN it would be greatly appreciated... thanks! cheers.

    Hello there-- new to this thread and really hoping for a bit of help from ya'll. I'm really hoping to be at GBCC for Fall 2012! I'm trying to figure out if I should be taking the NLN again. I've taken it once and achieved what I think is a pretty good score. I don't want to be overconfident and assume that the scores I received on my first NLN are good enough for acceptance. I'll take it again if it would be smart for me to get better scores than I currently have... but I have no idea what you folks who got accepted received for scores... please help! My NLN scores from this past 8/3 are: Composite-146 (98%) Verbal- 90% of q's correct, 98% relative to other RN test takers. Math- 90% of q's correct, 97% relative to other RN test takers. Science- 71% of q's correct, 91% relative to other RN test takers. It is the science that I'm wondering if I should be trying to raise. Also, I will have A&P 1 & 2 complete by application time, and I have a non-nursing BS degree already. Do you folks think I should retake the NLN or are these scores good enough??? Hope to hear from you-- Thanks for your help!!
