    Hey HEBgator, yeah a 92 on the teas is definitely competitive and will make up for the lower GPA, what did you use to study for teas??? I gonna hit the books and try the teas again. I do not know if gender factors into the selection process but in general they are definitely trying to get more men interested in this field, but we still have to "reach the bar" like any other nursing student. I'd hate to be selected and put ahead of a girl who has better scores just because of my gender...its not fair to me, nor them.

    Wow a 92 on the TEAS is awesome! I'll be happy in the 80s, I'm sure your score will get you in!
    Thanks! You'll do great I'm sure .

    I couldn't agree more man-nurse2b. If I were offered admissions into their nursing program, I'd like it to be based on my work and dedication not gender. But for study material I used the McGraw 5 TEAS test. Helped me brush up on the Reading/English sections. Math and sciences have always been my forte, lol and it definitely showed in the breakdown. Biggest thing was just getting a feel for the time and being relaxed. Good luck man!

    I have the McGraw 5 teas practice test since May, maybe I should actually read it and practice lol I just took the teas as soon as a got my AA just to see what it was like.

    The score that pulled me down was Language i got a 76. Its a bit more challenging for me because I am an immigrant from the caribbean, english is my first language but we learned things the British way, so silly stuff like nite, I spent all my life learning it as night...or where we spell colour, here they spell it color, I got the same issue with medical words that have slight variations in spelling...and we call soccer , football lol . Thank goodness math language is always the same.

    Another post had something about UCF degree audit. Since I have my AA when I click on transfer credit report, it just shows AA degree from FSCJ, and there is no break down of my courses, am I suppose to see like a list of all my transferred courses? and do I have to wait for this before applying?

    Hey y'all! I'll be applying to both the Daytona and Cocoa Beach campus. All of your scores look amazing! I hate playing the waiting game but it'll give us a chance to mingle among ourselves . Anyways my stats are a 3.2 gpa overall and a 3.3 pre-req gpa..I guess you could say I had some pretty extenuating circumstances. I scored a 92% on the TEAS V so hopefully that makes me a little more competitive. Lol i'm also a male, so maybe they'll throw some points my way

    WOW 92% on the TEAS! That's AWESOME! I plan to take the TEAS again in August. How did you study?

    Thanks Rachie002! I just studied the McGraw 5 Teas practice book. I took the first 4 practice exams and felt ready for the real deal. Good luck in August!!

    Just to let you guys know I have decided to go a different direction (PA school) so I am now working towards that. Ergo, I will not be applying so one less person to view as competition. Good luck everyone (:

    This is off topic but did you get a chance to shadow the PA already? what are the main differences in responsibilities as opposed to nursing and doctors? I know people call PA's, " doctor", but they still work under the physician, so its a bit confusing what exactly they do.
    What school are you going to try to get in? The only PA schools, I know of in central florida is NOVA, further north its UF and they have the best PA program in the state then a couple other like Barry and keiser.

    UF is my top choice. & I just shadowed one in the ER. They go in the room and everything just like doctors but if they need a second opinion then they ask the dr to take a look. Also, they just kinda run by the dr what they are going to do to the pt and the dr just signs off on it. However, the dr does trauma alerts, not the pa in the ER I shadowed at. But there are trauma PAs at some hospitals. Nursing and PA is very different. The PAs kinda give orders to the nurses from what I saw such as "go give the patient this med, ect" The nursing/PA relationship seemed kinda similar to a nurse and dr

    I dropped off my TEAs scores at the CON today and the woman at the desk says that they are definitely doing an interview this year, so it should be interesting to see how it plays into the acceptance process...
