FAU BSN 2013-Traditional or Accelerated

  1. Anyone out there that is applying to start the FAU Nursing program in May 2013? I have submitted my application for the accelerated program. It is the only program I am applying for so I am really hoping to receive an acceptance letter! I realize it will be quite some time until we know either way and thought we could get some conversation going among applicants.

    I'm in the process of finishing my application. I just need to get my transcripts sent to NursingCAS. FAU is also the only program I'm applying to. My TEAS V went well, but my GPA is just under a 3.6 so I'm pretty nervous about it. Good luck!

    Good luck to you as well! I have all As in my prerequisite gpa except stats which I am taking now and it's looking like I will have a B TEAS went well 93. something. I can retake but am nervous I will do worse and I think that's a pretty good score. I'm antsy as hell. Did you take the teas more than once? If so did you do better the second time?

    I only took it once and I got an 89% and that was 99th percentile national. With those grades and a 93, you sound like a shoe in. Did you do the optional personal statement/references/resume?

    I did not do any of the optional sections.

    I have a question, did u guys send in your transcript both to FAU and NursingCAS?

    I did send my transcripts to both NursingCAS and FAU though I recently re-read the procedures on the FAU website and it states that it is not necessary to send transcripts to the college itself.

    Hi! I applied as well. I have a 3.6 GPA, but only a 3.2 in the prereqs (worked full time while taking them, unfortunately). I took the TEAS once and was in the 87% percentile, but my grade was brought down heaps because I ran out of time on the math section (scored about 90% in all of the other sections) so I'm retaking it in two weeks.

    I submitted letters/personal statement and I feel mine are strong, plus I have some experience in the healthcare field, so I'm hoping that'll help me out. I did apply to a bunch of other schools, but would love to attend school in Florida (I am from New York).

    Good luck to everyone!

    Can you link me to where you read that. I emailed the them, but I haven't heard back.

    I just checked the website and it does say you have to apply to FAU in general. It was at the info session where the lady stated we didn't have to apply to the school first. I had already done it. I would call and verify just to be safe.

    Mindylane! Good luck on your second round with TEAS. I too ran out of time on the math section. Working full time myself as well. It is great you have other school options. All my eggs are in one basket. You are bound to get into the program you were meant too

    Hi All! Just want to join the discussion as I am in the process of applying to FAU as well. What study guides did you use for the Teas?
