Gadsden State Community College RN Hopeful - Fall 2011

  1. Hi all,

    New to the forum & just curious:

    Anyone else out here applying to GSCC for the Fall 2011 ADN program? Or recent grads from GSCC that can give some "general" pointers?

    I am applying for fall 2011 RN program. Have you taken the TEAS test yet? I'm wondering if my score was good or not. I do have it scheduled to retake it though just in case it wasn't good enough. Are you in school already at Gadsden State?

    Yep....took it & hope that my score was high enough. I took it on March 4th, and considering that you have to wait 6 weeks to retake it....I cant. The last date to test is April 8th & that put me at 5 weeks.

    I'm taking classes now. Are you?

    yes i'm taking classes now. I'm retaking the TEAS next friday the 25th. My first score was a 69. If you don't mind telling me what did you score on it? If you don't want to share I understand. I am just curious what my chances are about getting in. I will have all my pre-requisites finished by the fall semester.

    I made a 75. The science section SERIOUSLY hurt my score. I aced the other sections.

    I will have my pre-reqs finished this summer. All I have left are A&P II & Micro.

    I have to take micro and my humanities this summer. Well maybe my 69 isn't as terrible as I thought. are you taking day classes or night classes?

    Day class. My A&P is on T & TH. I'm taking Human Growth/Development & Speech online.

    The 69 isnt bad at all....from what they've been saying about the scores. Hey, at least you have A&P II out of the way. That's extra points added to your composite! I wanted at LEAST an 80 on the TEAS.

    i'm taking those classes online too now...who are you taking them from? I'm currently taking A&P II now in class.

    PSY with Guffey & Speech is with Groben....or whatever his name is.

    What did you use to study for the TEAS?
  11. by   gina197880
    im taking guffey for psy too..we probably have same class. I bought the study manual but after taking the test the first time without it. The science is very over my head considering I haven't had life science since 9th grade, which was nearly 18 years

    Oh girl, you arent kidding about that science!! I truly think it's rigged because the ATI study manual may MENTION "something", but doesnt even TOUCH on half of the "somethings" that are on the test....or should I say, doesnt go in-depth about those "somethings" which makes answering correctly almost impossible. I used that manual & the McGraw-Hill Nursing Entrance Exams study guide (which I found to be of more help). I also feel that alot of the Science is just....crap. I mean, 70% of what's in the Science portion we should know...WHY? LOL! I did ALOT of research online regarding the Science portion of the TEAS & it seems that only a very small percentage actually score well on it. Oh well, it is what it is. I just pray that I get in!

    Just logged onto Blackboard & if your last name is Wesson, then yep...we're in there together!

    Also, I talked to Pam Mayo. She mentioned that they're taking 120 students into the program.

    yep that's me..what's your name? I "overheard" someone in my A&P II saying they made a 101 on the TEAS but i'm seriously doubting it. She has not been making A's in A&P II so i'm thinking it was a lie about what she made on the TEAS. I just can't see anyone making that high unless they are a genius. I bombed on the math also but that was expected i've never been good in Math. The science was if you were wanting to become a chemist or scientist not a nurse. It was ridiculous. I am soo hoping to get in. I'm just so worried because I want to know what am I suppose to do for a whole year if I don't get in this fall? Just sit and wait ...i'll go bananas plus that's a waste of time. I considered applying for LPN also but I so want to just go straight into RN. I hate to say it but time needs to hurry up so I can put my mind at ease and stop worrying about getting in or not. I've heard some say its hard to get in and some says no its not. I have no idea who is right and who is wrong. I added up my points with my current TEAS test and it just didn't seem like a high enough score considering the most you can have is 251 (I think if I remember correctly).
