UCF 2013 Accelerated BSN - page 8
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... Read More
Jan 19, '13Thank 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!
Jan 22, '13Hey 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?
Jan 24, '13Personally, 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!
Jan 26, '13I 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
Jan 27, '13On 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!
Jan 27, '13Thanks 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

Jan 29, '13Hi 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.
Jan 29, '13I 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.
Jan 30, '13Application away! (tonight, that is). Finally. I had to wait because I took the TEAS for the second time this past Monday at UCF, and my score went up 5% from my December attempt... woot.
Feels so good to get it submitted.
I also learned today I have been offered an Interview spot at UNF in March, but UCF of course is my first choice before them because I live here now.
Nonetheless, the waiting now begins!
Jan 31, '13I've gotten mixed messages from the UCF CON - do we need the immunization form (university form not CON one) in by the app deadline?
Feb 8, '13Hello everyone!!!! I am new to this discussion board as I just found it this morning. I am in the same boat as the rest of you. I have recently applied to both the accelerated and the basic BSN programs at UCF. I am really nervous about getting in because there are so many applicants with really great stats and my overall GPA is not so hot (3.2). I am also very nervous about the interview (if I am so lucky to get one). My academic advisor said that career services has some mach interview questions and that they can help you prepare so I hope that will help some of you! Best of luck to all of you!!!
overall GPA: 3.2
prereq GPA: 4.0
TEAS score: 93.3
Feb 11, '13Woah! My background check said it was complete but when I looked at the details it said that employment was complete but not verified because additional funds were not authorized?? Is this normal? Or should I try to call to authorize more funds.. App due in 4 days!
