    Yeah no word county oh well. If I get accepted to county I'm definitely going. For now though I'm happy that at least I have been accepted somewhere Congrats on getting into Rio Hondo I didn't know they had a nursing program. How is Rio Hondos program?

    Does anyone know if you have taken TEAS elsewhere, would you just send in that score OR would you be required to take it at the school and that would be counted as your first try? I'm from the SD region, scored a 68% first try in March/13. Thanks! And what do you think of an overall score of 79/93 in the case that they do take my 68% score-definitely not competitive, but hopeful?

    I'm not sure about teas, but you would have to reside in LA County for a year before applying. Also, I believe the cut off for points was around 84 for the last semester. On the county's website it says that points required for acceptance has been between 80 and 82. Hopefully you can retake the teas, so you can get more points. If you plan on residing in LA County before applying.

    From what I've seen on here, the county is slow at sending out acceptance letters. County takes patience and they are worth the wait

    You can send your results via the TEAS website just choose LACCAN (I don't remember the exact name call the school for the exact initials) and tell the school you are sending them your score. County is pretty competitive so you would need good grades in order to offset your TEAS score but I believe they would give you 10 or 15 pts for your score (check their website for the exact score) well hope you get in take care

    smyleeRN, can you direct me to where it says you have to be a resident of LA for a year before applying? That's crazy! Also do you know when this school will allow you to retake the TEAS and be exempt from all your other tries so you can still get the 20 points?

    I'm not sure about taking the teas for sure. This is what I found on their website:
    TEAS V may be repeated once during the next application period and the higher overall score will be used for the selection process. Calculators may NOT be used for the test.
    Students who completed TEAS V at another location must request the exam results be sent to this nursing program by ATI.

    I would call them and ask. They also have information sessions that you can go to and they will explain everything and answer any questions you may have.

    From what I hear, they are. They have really good pass rates for NCLEX, that's for sure. I know that County employees have good benefits.

    Thank you for this information songiecookie. I was going to call them on the 15th of this month if I had not heard anything from them. As Willowita said they are on County time. LOL well I guess it is just more waiting for us .
