    Nursing to Medicine

    Advertisements



    Hello,
    I am currently a Registered Nurse in USA. I have reached the point where I am done with nursing and will be pursing medical school this year. Tomorrow I will be sending all my required docs to Jag for admissions. I have a couple questions regarding entrance exam and the possibility of nursing it up during the summer. My question about the entrance exam, is there any Organic Chem? I stopped after Gen Chem 2 since it wasn't required for the ADN, Associates Degree in Nursing, program that I did. Also, I have done the Gen Bio I & II along with Microbiology and Genetics so the BIO portion I could ace while sleeping. My last question about the entrance exam, is it required for everyone regardless of academic standing? The main reason I am wondering is whether or not I should do some reviewing or not.
    Lastly, I don't want to hear any of you individuals telling me to stay in the USA and finish my 4 year. That is not the question I asked and if that it the only answer you can give me then keep it to yourself, I don't want to read about it. I am 30 and Veteran of my beloved United States Marine Corps. I know what I want and what I want to do.
    Thank you for any and all answer that could be of help.
    Tony

    Tony82 hi

    There are some guys here, well versed and experienced about Jagiellonian with their either research or direct study in Jag, but I still will tell whatever I know:

    First of all, if you have associates degree, it may be a good idea to get in contact directly with the head of the med program in English, Prof.Piotr Laidler (I PM his e-mail address), and ask whether is it possible to get in 4-year program track. If you provide all of your assets, especially that Bio I-II and Microbiology&Genetics part, also your nursing experiences, also your work in Marine, if you give him all the data about you, it may be interesting for him. I dont know, but its a point you may benefit by digging more.

    If 4-year program track is not open, then:
    1) Entrance exam has organic chem questions as well, but if you can answer SAT-subject based questions, then you will do well in Jag entrance exam too.
    2) The quality of the entrance exam was demanding to be over 70% until now. But regarding that Hungarian schools are somewhat lagging and falling behind, also regarding Jagiellonian developed agreements Malasia after its agreement with Norway, it may get harder in time. This is only my own speculation, not a data.
    3) Yes, for 6-year program, it is required for everybody. It is the criterion they look for in entrance. This is a line written in capitla letters in their relevant web page (http://www.medschool.cm-uj.krakow.pl...l/md_school/):
    "ADMISSIONS TO THE PROGRAM ARE BASED SOLELY ON THE ENTRANCE EXAM RESULTS"

    This is the part of Jagiellonian website relevant for foreign students (in other words, about the 4 and 6-year med programs in English):

    Ah, by the way, this is the entrance exam biology sample test from Jag's website:
    http://www.medschool.cm-uj.krakow.pl...iology2008.pdf

    and this is chem sample:
    http://www.medschool.cm-uj.krakow.pl..._questions.pdf

    Actually they take place in the web page I have placed in my previous post, but just to draw your attention I wanted to mention here again.

    I hope the best for you

    Thank you very much. I noticed the admission requirements to the program on their website, I wasn't sure about whether they made exceptions on a case by case basis for those in situations where they obviously meet and exceed the min requirements for the 6 year but not quite the minimum requirements for the 4 year. Your response has been greatly appreciated, thank you.

    I also wanted to let you know I received your PM. Since I have "rookie" status I am unable to reply in a normal fashion. Stupid rules.

    Should you be admitted, they do look at past credits on a case-by-case basis, so you might be able to get out of repeating some courses you have previously completed.
