  1. Hello! I am currently a nursing student in California and will be graduating next month on December 13th. It is my plan to move to Colorado in early January and take NCLEX there to be licensed in Colorado. I am just really confused in terms of the "State of Primary Residence" section of the application. I will be applying right after I graduate, at which time my state of primary residence will still be California. But once I move to Colorado (around January 5th- 3 weeks later) I will be surrendering my California drivers license and will be obtaining a Colorado drivers license to prove that Colorado is now my state of primary residence (Side note: I need to get a Colorado drivers license and car registration pretty much immediately after I get there considering my California car registration expires on January 8th). So, basically, by the time I take NCLEX I will no longer be a resident of California and will no longer have the California drivers license that will be listed on my Colorado application. Will this pose a problem in testing for and obtaining my nursing license? Is there any way I can update my submitted nursing application after I establish CO residency? I suppose it would be easier to wait and apply to the CO board after I move there but I really want to start this application process as soon as possible because, well, the sooner I apply, the sooner I test, and the sooner I can start searching for a job. Also, the CO application asks for a nursing school transcript to be submitted. Do I only submit the transcript of the school that issued my nursing degree or do I also submit a separate transcript from the school I attended to complete my prerequisites? I have emailed the Colorado board but the responses have been a little vague, at best, so I'm hoping someone here can shed some light on this matter for me. Thank you so much for your help and for taking the time to read all of that. Hopefully it wasn't too confusing, haha. Regards, Ryan

    Mount St Marys ADN for Spring 2013

    Got an 83% on my TEAS. I currently have a 3.1 Science GPA and a 3.5 overall but I have 4 classes in progress (will be done in December). I really hope that's good enough!! *fingers crossed*

    How's everyone coming along with the application process? Just took my TEAS today. I think I did well but won't know for a few days... bummer! Getting closer and closer to "acceptance letter" time... so nervous- I really hope I get in!

    Mount St Marys ADN for Spring 2013

    The community college programs here in Arizona have a two year wait list. But Mt. St. Mary's doesn't- it's competitive admission.

    Mount St Marys ADN for Spring 2013

    I applied for Spring 2013 as well. I currently live in Phoenix, Arizona and am taking my pre-reqs out here. I've finished all but 4 of them which I am taking now and will be finished with in December. When I spoke with the nursing adviser back in February she said that I need to have all pre-reqs done before starting the nursing program. According to her, we're allowed to apply with pre-reqs still in progress, given that they will be completed before January. I hope that was the correct information! Would be disheartening, to say the least, to be denied and have to apply again for the fall semester. My fingers are crossed for all of you as well! Good luck :)
  6. Hi Kendall! So sorry it took so long for me to respond, I've been sooo busy with class. Any who, it's nice to know we're in the same boat! Did you figure out what you're going to do? I've decided to go with Mt. St. Mary's in LA, hoping to get into their ADN program in January 2013 and then switch to their BSN program after I finish. But they require more pre-requisites than Arizona so I've been taking summer school classes and will be taking on a full time course load next semester just to get all of this done in time. Stressful but it will be worth it! Good luck to you as well! :)
