  1. Hutchinson Community College- LPN to RN

    The other score is the rubric score. That’s where you figure out your total points for Kaplan scores and prerequisites.
  2. Kaplan coming up in 2 months

    I found Smart Edition Academy’s online practice tests to be pretty helpful. I also heard the ACT study guide is great for the reading section. Good luck with your test!
  3. Online/Hybrid options

    Someone at your Agency would just have to sign a form stating that you’ve completed the hours through them.
  4. D in Developmental Psychology

    I would definitely retake it since most programs require at *least* a C in all prerequisites to even apply. Aim for an A, though.
  5. Hutchinson Community College- LPN to RN

    It really depends on the cohort but it is a competitive program. It never hurts to try, though. The next application period opens March 1st and goes through July 30th. Good luck!
  6. LPN Pay?

    I’m in northern CA and am currently making $40.65/hr. I have 3.5 years of experience. The pay for LVNs here is anywhere from $26-$45/hr depending on experience and if it’s a contract position or not. The average pay seems to be in the low-mid $30s. ...
  7. Online/Hybrid options

    I just got accepted to the RN bridge program at Hutchinson Community College in Kansas. All the classes are online and you travel to Kansas for clinicals each semester. They let you do them in blocks since most people don’t live in the area. During t...
  8. Hutchinson Community College- LPN to RN

    Crossing my fingers that a spot opens up for you!
  9. Hutchinson Community College- LPN to RN

    Check your emails! I got my acceptance today. SO excited! ☺️
  10. New LVN grad, any advise?

    I hope you find something much better very soon!
  11. Were you a bully in high school?

    Quite the opposite for me. Many people were nasty to me because I was “weird” and quiet (I’m on the spectrum). I learned to tune out most of their words after a while because I was too consumed by the overwhelming feelings of discomfort I was experie...
  12. New LVN grad, any advise?

    I’m sorry you’re going through that. It sounds like they are taking advantage of you because you’re new, while also keeping you from valuable/necessary orientation time that you are entitled to. Is this a place that you want to stay at or are you con...
  13. Chemistry / Microbiology

    Just take it one day at a time. It’s normal to feel overwhelmed at first but then it gets much better.
  14. Chemistry / Microbiology

    I took Chemistry at my local community college. I was really intimidated at first, but as I learned the formulas it became easier. I took micro through Pratt Community College.
  15. Chemistry / Microbiology

    Chemistry has a ton of math, but isn’t too difficult as long as you know the formulas for the equations. It’s very repetitive with all the calculations, though. Micro wasn’t very hard.
  16. Hutchinson Community College- LPN to RN

    That’s great that you were accepted to Fairmont- They’re not accepting applicants from California otherwise I would apply. Still hoping we all get into Hutchinson ☺️
  17. Hutchinson Community College- LPN to RN

    I’m hopeful that all of us will still get in. It’s a bit discouraging to know so many people applied, but you never know. What was your rubric score?
  18. I love dimensional analysis. It came in quite handy when I took Chemistry because I already understood how to use it. It’s one of the simplest forms of math, imo. This is a great resource!
  19. Hutchinson Community College- LPN to RN

    I know how you feel. I wish there were more options out there. It sucks that we don’t have anything local really.
  20. Hutchinson Community College- LPN to RN

    I emailed the program secretary today and she informed me that they received 265 applications this year. I’m trying my best to stay hopeful, but that’s such a large number ?
  21. Hutchinson Community College- LPN to RN

    That’s great! I am also wondering how many people applied and what the average scores are. This waiting game is hard.
  22. Not sure if I’m capable of becoming a nurse

    Don’t give up yet. Prereqs are pretty different from actual nursing classes. In my experience, basic chem and biochem were only briefly touched upon during anatomy and physio, mainly enzymatic processes, proteins, etc. What classes are you takin...
  23. Online Microbiology

    I know a few people who took it online through University of Phoenix and didn’t have any issues with the BON. I heard the class is pretty expensive, though. Also, most of the community colleges in CA are offering sciences online right now due to Covi...
  24. Hutchinson Community College- LPN to RN

    They might be doing it alphabetically or something of the sort. I’m sure it is coming. Have you checked your DragonZone email?
  25. Hutchinson Community College- LPN to RN

    I received an email today stating that they have reviewed my app and that it will be sent to the admissions committee in September/October. I’m assuming we all received this email?
