Hello everyone. I'm new to allnurses.com and I just wanted to say congrats to those who got into the 2012 UCF nursing program this summer. I am a prenursing student at UCF as I am still working on a few prerequisites before I... Read More

    Thank you, Zeus&Lincoln, for sharing your perspective; it is very reassuring. And Gradius, I love your spirit of teamwork and your drive to persevere. Just like Nursowiczka2b said, we need to stay positive! This profession comes with many challenges, and this program will be foundational in preparing us for what's ahead. I'm sure there will be many obstacles along the way, but in the end, they will probably make us stronger and more proficient at what we do.

    Thank you zeus&lincoln for offering your help. My husband just volunteered to help out as well if any of the IT problems surface. He's is an engineer and loves that stuff. Lol

    Well, looks like all we have left for now is to wait those longs weeks they want us to and find out if we're given a shot at this!
    I am optimistic! You should be too!! We will succeed!

    Hey Guys,

    Thanks for all the wonderful help! I was wondering how I should study for the TEAS exam? How long did you study? Should I buy the ATI book and online exams?

    Personally, I didn't spend a lot of time studying for it, but my background is in education and I recently took all of my science prerequisite courses. I bought McGraw-Hill's book of 5 TEAS practice tests at Barnes & Noble for about $12, and I worked through all of the problems so I would be familiar with the format. I timed myself at first, but after a while, I just took my time going through it, reading the explanations for any that I missed. All said and done, I spent no more than 3 days studying for it. The book was very helpful to me, though, and I would recommend it. Good luck to you!

    I have a question about the background check. It's showing that my background check is complete (except for the last part under fingerprinting that the school has to fill in). When I look at the actual background check document, it shows that an attempt was made to contact my previous employer. Do you know if this gets updated when contact has been made with the employer?

    So glad to have my application in

    On my document, it looks like it took them three tries to verify my employment. Under "contact history", it shows that there was "no answer" the first two attempts, but next to the third attempt, it states, "entered results". Beneath the "contact history" is a section called "additional questions" where it shows that they asked if I was eligible for rehire, and my employer's response was that I am "current". Inititally, I was concerned that they were unable to make contact, but the day I was going to follow up with a call, I saw that it had been updated. If you're worried about it, you might want to call CP just to make sure it's as it should be. I hope this helps!

    Thanks so much! I'll give my previous employer and CP a call tomorrow morning. At the bottom of mine it lists that VOE must be completed by fax, so I'm guessing they're just waiting on that. I'll have to get on my old HR person to get it sent in ASAP

    Hi guys,

    I've been thinking about about one thing now that we're approaching the deadline for submitting our applications.
    If the TEAS was taken at UCF testing center that means that one does NOT have to submit the official score from ATI testing to CON, right?
    From what I understand they send it to CON automatically?

    I think I'm just getting a lil nervous and I just want to make sure that everything Is done correctly.

    Thanks.

    Yes, when you take the Teas at ucf they send the scores directly to con.

    I was worried about the same thing. I called the CON and the guy thought they sent them but told me to call the testing center just in case. The testing center said that it automatically goes to whatever school you put on your ATI account. If you look at your test results it should say UCF as the institution.
