    The essay questions are all along the same line. They usually ask why you want to be a nurse. You can't really prepare for the essay. It's 1-2 pages and a basic 5 paragraph essay. Study up for the TEAS. I would suggest taking the TEAS at a testing site near you to see where you stand.

    You can takes the TEAS at SDSU Tues-Sat at either 9am or 1pm. They charge $60 per test and they only accept cash unless you're a student there. You can take the test as many times as you want, there's no wait period at SDSU. NU lets you take it as many times as you want. Be aware that if you apply to other schools they usually only let students take it 3 times total. My friend said that the TEAS at SDSU is easier than NU. Did you buy the ATI book?

    Sweet! No I have not bought the book yet. I'm just finishing up with A&P 2 and I want to focus on micro and biomed before I wrap my brain around that Do you know if volunteer work gives you extra points towards being accepted? Congrats on making it!! I hope I'm in your shoes this time next year!!!

    NU does not give you points for volunteer work. There for 4 sections that you get points for: number of attempts to pass a class, science base, TEAS, and essay. I would get the book and read a little at a time. I rented the book for $20. I do not suggest buying the online practice test that ATI offers. The book has two practice test at the end. The science part is pretty demanding I suggest skimming through it, but I think the science portion on the TEAS is much harder. The test is more on stuff that you learned in high school. I suggest that you take the TEAS at SDSU until you get a score of 80+.

    It said the same thing when I tried to PM you. I think you have to have at least 20 post before you can PM anyone.

    Need 15 substantial posts before the PM (Private Message) feature will be activated.
    Most people have no trouble reaching 15.
