    Congratulation on getting in! Just wondering what ur gpa and NET scores were? I don't know if I should try applying there for spring '10. Where is whitica falls located?

    Wichita Falls in UPPER north Texas. Its about 20 or so minutes from Lawton Oklahoma, so about 2 1/2 hours from Dallas. I applied with a 3.5 on the prereqs and i had a 76 on the reading and 89 on the Math portion on the NET. They do a point system, you get 42 points just for having a C or better in the prerquisites, you get 2 points for have "post high school" on your NET, you get 10 points for have a B or better in your science courses, and you get other points for other stuff, so i think i applied with like 80 or 90 points.

    CONGRATS!!!! I admire everything you said because its all soooo true....Im applying to Midwestern State University right now for the Spring 2010 term. I recently got advised there in April and my points were at 59( I havent taken my NET yet) but she told me that I shouldnt have any problems getting in. All my Prereq's are done, I have 1 C out of ALL my classes(English 1302). i attend UTA and I currently have a 3.33 GPA. Even though she told me that i shouldnt have any problems getting in, im still nervous! Do you happen to know if science is on the NET exam? Any info you can give me about MWSU and the Application process would be helpful!!!!! AGAIN CONGRATS...GOD IS GOOD N HE HEARS YOUR PRAYERS!

    hey futureRN. you need to hurry up and get 15 posts so we can private message. lol. but here is what i can tell you. WTNEC handles all of west texas applications, its free to apply to one of thsoe, but if you also want to apply to tech, it will cost you for one of those. umm. the science on the NET i didnt study for, and it is on there and i literally guessed on ALL of them and missed one. so lol idk its not too bad, but i cant tell you how to study for it. you shouldnt have a problem getting in because when i was up there registering there were people there who havent even taken stats, or some other prereqs. i was so nervous that i retook all of my prereqs i had a C in but dont worry your gpa looks good. if you are core complete, meaning all the basics done, you wont have but 9 hours your first semester which is intro to nursing, patho, and health assessment. you can take patho and intro to nursing before hand, and you will only have health assessment, but i needed to be full time so i didnt take them. clinical times are between 8-5. i got 10-12 on tuesdays, so thats great. patho is online, and tests are on campus. you have the same teacher for health assessment and intro to nursing. they accept 80 people, and then if your 81 and beyond you're on a waitlist. when you apply its okay if your transcripts havent reached their designated places before the deadline approaches. just make sure you submit the application on time the transcripts can come later. i applied in february,and got the letter April 18th. so approx 2 months waiting time. the orientation is mandatory in order to register. its the schools orientation, and if you have more than 30 hours attend the first transfer day orientation if you can because clinical times will fill up verrry quickly... the nursing orientation is the saturday after the first week of classes, i know its wierd, but thats how it is. buy your scrubs somewhere other than the bookstore. they are taxing majorly. and incase you dont know what that means..it meas verrrrrrry expensive. i got mine at JCPenney outlet in grapevine mills mall, idk if you're in the DFW area, but thats where i got mine. but im sure you can find them cheaper elsewhere. also they tax hard on the books too. so go to chegg.com, half.com or amazon and ebay. lets see..i know im jumping ahead, but im confident you will get in. i met 2 reallly great girls, and ive been texting them a lot who are going to msu, so as soon as you find out you're accepted meet some ppl and stay close because like us, we knew nobody, so be we got close before we moved. i met one at spirit days that i met on allnurses and shes a sweetheart. they will definitely help you through the process. so keep posting on here and try to meet as many people as possible. they have an assessment kit in the library for health assessment, and they have a ADscope stethoscope, so its not the most expensive, and im saying this because if you find a stethoscope that you like and its not that expensive its okay. i know some schools require littmann, but its what you like. and they have a BP cuff there too. the package is 80. i got everything plus bandage scissors, penlight etc. for 50 at majors bookstore in dallas, so shop around before you think of that bookstore. umm. any other questions just ask me. i feel like im rambling. so just ask away.

    Good luck I'm sure you will do well. Most nurses that will be good or even better nurses than others are the one's who they don't see or put on the back burner, but i know you will do your best. You go gurl!

    Im working on it LOL...im sure im close. i have th estudy guide for the NET but theres no science in it. The only pre reqs I have left are Stats and Microbiology, and im taking those this fall. I RETOOK All the classes I had c's in too...all except 1 and that was English 1302. I just took Intro to nursing at UTA this spring...I have to be full time too so more than likely im going to have blow off classes. Thats sounds like the best clinical time not too early and not too late. Catherine told me that they take the number down to atleast 100 because some of the students accepted drop out. She told me for the spring term we should know by mid November. I have like 60 something credit hours so I NEED to be at the first one if accepted. There are plenty places in Dallas to get scrubs at I run into them all the time. I buy most of my books online anyway...I plan on meeting more MWSU nursing students, i actually didnt know that it would be this much info on here lol.I got a blood pressure cuff and stethoscope when I was in High School. And NO u are not rambling I really appreciate all the info. Do you happen to know anybody applying to the DCCCD Nursing programs? And did you submit essays, letters of recomendation etc. on the WTNEC online nursing app...because i didnt.

    I just want to tell everyone not to give up in your fight to someday be an RN. I'm living proof. I attended an Ivy-League nursing school and was told by one of the faculty to quit and that I was not "RN" material. Medicine has always been a struggle for me to understand quickly and that is why I enjoy it. The challenge is what I wanted. I failed my NCLEX 3 times! Yes, I said 3 times! I currently work in an ICU and am a ******* awesome RN both emotionally and clinically! I am waiting to hear back from a grad school I interviewed at for CRNA school. Moral: Screw everyone else! Your career is what you make it. You will be the RN you want to be! And the faculty, they're just a bunch of menopausal ******* who are too scared to practice on the front line. If anyone ever tells you NO, tell them to come talk to you when your the awesome RN of the future saving lives and families thanking God for you.

    If you want it bad enough, there is NOTHING you can't achieve.

    The Lord has his plans for you, and has begun a work that He will see to completion.

    wow that was so inspiration for me! I mean I am having it rough being in micro and hearing the stories coming from students that r in the program scares the beegeezees out of me but I didnt get this far to let those who dont want the future RNs to succeed. Got a long way to go but I am prepared for the ups and downs. So thanks RocketMan for keeping it REAL
