Today I completed my application for the AD Nursing Program. I did not realize how competitive it was to get in. My rubric score ended up being a 69, can anyone tell me if that is a score that would give me a chance at getting in? I have a 4.0 at EKU right now, but I did not receive any points for my ACT score because I did not have a 20 in all areas. Can someone please give me some info on this?

I was actually worried about getting into EKU's Nursing Program period, not about getting a job, but thank you.

These comments show the level of stupidty you have. I worked at PAC for a long time as well as St Joe and later Central Baptist. I can tell you the problem at PAC was never the nursing staff. It was the low performing physicians. What you apparently never realized was that the nurses working 3 twelve hour shifts at PAC many in fact most were also doing 3 12's in Lexington. The issue with this hospital is doctors that care little, perform poorly and are not held accountable. There is little a nurse can do for you if she is working under those conditions. That is why the turn over is high at PAC.

All nurses have to pass the same state boards state wide. If you don't pass you don't get a license.

I am sorry you did not realize your issues were with doctors and not nursing staff.

You won't get an answer because as has been said in other threads this program is based on who they believe will make a strong nurse. It is the hardest program in the state, not because they cover different or more material, or produce higher boards pass rates but because the department feels they have something to prove.
Just my opinio.

I had a friend who was in EKUs RN program. We could not get her to go out with her group of friends for [four years] because she was was constantly studying, afraid of her grades dipping and getting kicked out. She made it through (and is now making bank) but they were apparently dropping students just weeks before graduation who were celebrating a little early. It all depends on what you want for yourself.

EKU's nursing program entry is based upon how many students apply and if they have a higher point than you do. They let in the max amount of people with the highest points. It all depends on who has applied and if you have higher number of points than they do whether you get accepted or not. There is no way to know if you will get in or not.
