I've applied to the LVN to BSN cohort at National University in SD that begins in January 2013. Anyone else there apply, too? I'm currently waiting for an email so I can take the TEAS....
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.
