    Uworld, Mary Ann Hogan or Saunders?

    I took the NCLEX a week and a half ago and I passed in 75 questions. I only used UWorld to prepare. I found their questions and rationales to be through and very comprehensive. I finally was able to figure out the true "rules" about delegation and practiced so many delegation questions that I felt confident in making a decision tree in my head for approaching those questions. If you give yourself a month and make a plan of questions to practice you will be very prepared for the NCLEX. I would suggest doing them all and really studying the rationales as you go. Good Luck!
  2. Hello! I am hoping others who have gone through the new applicant RN licensing process in Illinois can help me with this. I passed the NCLEX on 9/20, my pass results were posted on the CTS site on Monday 9/23. A classmate of mine let us know that she was looking into her license being delayed and when she called IDFPR they stated they had not received her fingerprints- we all got them done electronically via IdentoGO at our school prior to graduation together on campus. I decided to call to check and IDFPR stated that they did not have them and that they would have to be resent. However, according to IdentoGO they are not "physically" sent- they are electronic and IDFPR has to use the tracking number to look them up. I have tried to explain this but the person at the call center at IDFPR did not seem to understand. CTS stated that I had to have proof of fingerprints in order to be able to register. I am at a loss of what to do/ who at IDFPR to contact to try and communicate with someone who understands how to access my fingerprints. Has anyone else gone through something similar/ can anyone give me advice on this process? I have checked the IDFPR website to no avail.

  6. Hello! I am still completing a Nutrition course online and taking a stats class as my local community college( the last time I took stats was in high school for AP credit) so once I have completed the nutrition course I can submit my application! Do you have any idea how competitive the application process is? I am applying to other programs in Chicago as well. I have been working with a woman named Kelly, but she has been great too. I just wish I could talk to some current students!

    Rush University GEM Fall 2016

    Hello All! I am applying to the Rush University GEM Fall 2017 Cohort. I just got my invitation for an interview today, less than 30 minutes after my app was verified by NursingCAS! I was wondering if any of you all could shed some light on interview tips/ your backgrounds. Should I be excited I got the interview? I appreciate all your help! Also, where can I find my prerequisite GPA calculation on the NursingCAS application?

  13. Hello All! I just submitted my supplemental application for Rush University and I was wondering if anyone else had applied? If so, how long after your application was verified by NursingCAS did you get an interview?
