1 APPLYING FOR THE Part-Time Winchester PRACTICAL NURSING PROGRAM SEPTEMBER Madison Street, Shelbyville, TN (931) phone (931) fax

2 Tennessee College of Applied Technology/Shelbyville School of Practical Nursing 2015 Application Procedures Part-Time Winchester Class NOTE: All applications are handled through the main campus in Shelbyville by contacting the Student Services Department only. Failure to do so may result in your getting the incorrect information and could ultimately prevent you from entering the program (i.e. missed deadlines, etc.) Applications for one TCAT are not transferrable to another. Classes meet Monday through Thursday from 4:00 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. until clinicals begin. Once clinical practice has begun, the schedule will be two nights 4:00 7:00 p.m. and two nights 3:00-10:30 p.m. Regardless of where you live, travel is required to different sites for both clinicals and labs. Also, a computer with internet access is needed at home or access to one is needed. Step #1 Complete all Pre-Requisites. There are three pre-requisites for entrance into the Practical Nursing program in Winchester. There is no required order for completion. Failure to complete all three will result in you NOT starting the program. Pre-requisite #1 Schedule and take the COMPASS exam. You must come in person, complete a COMPASS Application and pay the $15 testing fee. A minimum score of 50 in Pre-Algebra and 80 in Reading is required. These are the only accepted components of the COMPASS test. The COMPASS exam is used at the Tennessee College of Applied Technology as an entrance exam. We do realize that it is given at other institutions and used as a placement test, but that is not our purpose. Everyone (regardless of your education level) must take this exam. The only exception would be if you are under age 20 and have taken the ACT with no individual score below 19 and the composite score must be 19 or higher. An official copy of the scores must be submitted to us. Remember that higher COMPASS or higher ACT scores will be rewarded with higher point value in the application process. Studying for the exam is recommended. The first time the test is taken, you must take both the Math and Reading portion ($15 cash only). If a higher score is desired in a single area, you may take only one portion of the test. ($8 cash only) You must wait 30 days before retesting. Scores are good for two years. The COMPASS is a computer based test. It is not timed. If you need special accommodations and desire to take the test pencil and paper, you must have a doctor s documentation requesting such special accommodations. Check your schedule against the testing schedule before making your appointment. Once you ve made the appointment, if you have to change, you will be charged again. When you arrive to take the test, a valid picture ID is required before beginning the test. There will be no exceptions. Pre-requisite #2 Anatomy & Physiology (A & P) is required of all students entering the program. This must be completed prior to entering the program. If you have already taken A & P, your credits may transfer. We will accept an official transcript (only) from any Tennessee college or university that is SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools) or COE (Commission on Occupational Education) accredited. It must indicate that a grade of B or above was achieved and that A & P 1 and 2 were completed no earlier than Spring of Students will be allowed to test out by successfully completing the HESI A & P test for the course. Applicants will only be allowed to take the test out exam one time. Cost will be $50 and a minimum score of 750 is required. Appointments must be made at least three weeks in advance. Applicants who take the test and do not pass will be required to take the class before continuing the application process. The Tennessee College of Applied Technology - Shelbyville will be offering Anatomy and Physiology as a night program in January, May and September. Check with Student Services for the current schedule. Pre-requisite #3 Math for Meds is required of all students entering the program. This must be completed prior to entering the program. The Tennessee College of Applied Technology - Shelbyville will be offering Math for Meds as a night program. Classes will meet one night per week for 3 hours for 13 weeks. Students will be allowed to test out by successfully completing the 100 question final for the course. Applicants will only be allowed to take the test out exam one time. Cost will be $50 and a minimum score of 80% is required. Applicants who take the test and do not pass will be required to take the class before continuing the application process. It is the responsibility of the applicant to make sure they have completed all prerequisites. TCAT Shelbyville will not notify you of schedules or impending deadlines. PLEASE NOTE: Completion of all three pre-requisites does not guarantee entrance! Step #2 Apply to the Practical Nursing Program (this is the second required application) Part-Time Winchester Classes begin September 2015 Students will be notified to attend an information session only if they have completed all three pre-requisites (see Step #1 above). There may be more than one session, but is imperative that you attend on the date assigned. Seating will be limited. Failure to attend the information session will prevent you from completing the application process and prevent you from beginning the program. The information sessions will take place during the month of June. Step #3 Acceptance Standards Each applicant will be evaluated according to the COMPASS scores, educational history, work history and reference questionnaires. Not everyone who applies will be accepted into the program. Persons not accepted into the program will have to re-apply to be considered for future programs.

Allied Health (Compass) Test Information There are two sections of the Compass test that you will be tested on: Pre-Algebra and Reading.

Doug French s Verbal Prep for the COMPASS Exam (ISBN 13: ) Bob Miller s Math prep for the COMPASS Exam (ISBN 13: ) Numerical Skills/Pre-Algebra Placement Test Questions in the Numerical Skills/Pre-Algebra Test range in content from basic arithmetic concepts and skills to the knowledge and skills considered prerequisites for a first algebra course. Please note that the Pre-Algebra test is application based, not knowledge based. This means that you will not be asked to solve general math problems, but to apply math concepts to solve real life thought problems. This test includes items from more than a dozen content areas; however, a majority of the questions come from the following categories: Operations with Integers This is the basic math part, and includes addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of whole numbers, and using these concepts to solve thought problems. Operations with Fractions This is basic operations with fractions, including addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, and solving thought problems with fractions. Operations with Decimals - This is basic operations with decimals, including addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, and solving thought problems with decimals. Positive Integer Exponents, Square Roots, and Scientific Notation -This portion of the test deals with addition, subtraction, multiplication an division of exponents, square root concepts, and the basis of scientific notation. Also included in this section are concepts that apply to using formulas to solve thought problems. Ratios and Proportions This section of the test deals with ratios and proportions as they are used to solve a variety of real life thought problems. Percentages This section of the test deals with percents as they are used to solve a variety of real life thought problems. Averages (Means, Medians, and Modes) this section of the test involves using mean, median and modes in a variety or real life thought problems. Reading The reading comprehension items are of two general categories: referring and reasoning. Within each of these two general categories are several content categories that further specify the skills and knowledge assessed by each item. Referring items pose questions about material explicitly stated in a passage. Reasoning items assess proficiency at making appropriate inferences, developing a critical understanding of the text, and determining the specific meanings of difficult, unfamiliar, or ambiguous words based on the surrounding context.
