Weatherford College LVN Spring 2016

Hello everyone! So I have decided in my nursing program pursuit that I am going to go ahead and apply to the weatherford college lvn program and then bridge. Does anyone know what kind of schedules we will have? Trying to get an idea of work schedule vs school schedule. I am also going to take the compass help class to get a feel for it but im wondering if I should go on and try to take I it this week also just to get an idea what its like?? Anywho, if theres anyone else out there that will be applying with me come say hi! Oh also I will be commuting from masfield let me know if I have any close buddies for study groups if we get in!

I am also going to take the compass this week for the LVN program and I also live in Mansfield. :) Weird I haven't seen too many posts on this website about the upcoming semester!

Oh my gosh yay!!!! I am going to take the compass seminar class on the 18th before I take the test so I have some practice and know what to expect. I'm so excited! If we get in we can make study sessions :)

The compass was a lot easier that I thought it was going to be. I mean way easier, I almost had over 90's in both. If you study the practice Compass test they provide you will be very well prepared! I was so nervous. I hardly studied and did well on the test. Good luck to you. :)

Well that makes me feel a lot better! :)

Hi ladies! I am taking my compass exam tomorrow! Any pointers or suggestions? Im super nervous, I haven't had too much time to really review much because I was hoping I got into the nursing program at TCC but I received my letter today and didn't get in :( any information would be greatly appreciated!

I went to the compass workshop today and it's not difficult math but you need to make sure you remember order of operations, fractions and really read the word problems. Good luck I'm taking mine Monday

Awesome thanks for the heads up! I apologize ahead of time if I ask too many questions lol I can't find any information online.

Did they state if there is algebra, geometry and trig on there too? Or is it just pre-algebra stuff? I printed their compass test info sheet and it stated pre algebra only but they have a whole section on algebra so I wanted to double check. Here is the link. https://www.wc.edu/public/upload/files/academics/Compass-Test.pdf

Also, did they say how many questions there is?

Thanks again!

No such thing as too many questions lol. As far as the number of questions the test is computer generated and adds questions as you go if you're doing well one of the girls there said the first time she took it and did poorly the test ended after only thirty minutes but then someone else who did well on it said it gave her enough questions to take about an hour. Most of the problems are 8th grade level math, arithmetic, percentages, fractions and a little bit of pre algebra but one of the teachers said that she has had a few students come back and tell them that after doing well on the test there were a couple algebra type questions but if it's giving you those you're probably doing well lol cuz the test generated problems based on how you're doing

Also do those practice questions on WC website they will help

Thanks again! I will check in tomorrow and let you know how it goes!

Awesome yea let m me know

So I took my exam today and my whole entire math section was math problems! I didn't get an 90+ which was what I was hoping for so I'm going to retake the math portion again. The reading portion was a breeze! Just make sure to read the questions and answers carefully.

I'm hoping to get between the 80-89 at least on the math section but I also have myself enough time to be able to take it again if I don't like my scores thanks for the update!

Good Luck! If you have any questions feel free to let me know :) By the way I didn't get any algebra questions mostly ratio fraction and percentage word problems.

How many points do you think they are looking for this semester and how many applicants do they take for spring? I know it is different then fall since it's only offer at the main campus during spring. I've been reading the other posts today and it sounds like the points they have accepted previously have been super low especially for alternatives.

Yea and I heard they have a lower amount of applicants for spring yea I'm kinda mad because I didn't read well enough when I was looking over the points for the LVN program and thought I was going to get the extra point for A&P one but I'm not because I got a C+ in that class and I'm currently taking A&P two so it won't count :/ meh lol I'm going to just go on and get all my ducks in a row in case I get alt listed because I know I've seen that they may call as late as the day before classes start

Are you taking any classes right now?

Oh bummer, I just saw on the sheet it has to be a "B" or better for the extra point. From the other posts WC have taken almost all the alternatives and super low points so thats promising! I think I am going to go ahead and do everything else as well just in case i get accepted or get alternative. I don't want to wait until the last minute. I find it interesting that not too many people have posted on here for the LVN program. ADN has become so competitive to get into I figured others would do LVN as a backup.

I am currently taking 3 classes at TCC Trinity River. Hist 2, Fed Govt and Kinesiology

I noticed that too that there's not as much buzz about it but hey if that gives me a better chance of getting in I'm all for it lol
