UCF Cocoa Beach/Daytona Spring 2013

  1. 0 I am a prenursing student attending UCF Orlando Campus. I am applying this summer to Cocoa Beach and Daytona Campuses to start Spring 2013! Eeek! I know there have been other forums regarding previous admissions to the program that have helped me to figure where I stand. I thought it would be nice to have a chance to meet each other, talk about our scores, and answer or ask questions regarding the application process!

    Nice to meet you,
    UCF is one of the many nursing schools I plan to apply to. I just have to get my TEAS up to competitive standards. I am confident I will get my scores up. I feel comfortable with a 3.75 science GPA and 3.54 overall GPA.

    What other schools do you plan to apply to? I have one more chance to take my TEAS which I plan on taking after I finish A&P 2 this summer! Hopefully I can get my TEAS score a few points higher and the pool of applicant scores isn't too high!!

    Nice to meet you! Does anyone know how many students are accepted for each nursing program per year and how many students apply?

    I plan on applying to Daytona as my first choice & Cocoa as my 2nd. I really want to go to Daytona though. My overal GPA is a 3.88 and my pre req GPA is a 4.0. My highest TEAS is an 80 percent which is not as good as I want but I am hoping it is enough to get me in. I hope it is an easy application pool since they only accept 36 people. So what are the TEAS scores that you guys have that you want to raise up?

    I'm applying for the Cocoa and Daytona campuses for Spring 2013, Daytona being my first choice. My gpa is only a 3.48, but I scored an 88 on the TEAS test so I'm hoping that will help. I'm beyond nervous for the whole process. Last week I received an email that they may request interviews from applicants, so it will be interesting to see if/how that factors in.

    to CNicole6: The GPA is kinda low but the TEAS is rlly good so you have a pretty good shot because the TEAS may make up for your GPA. What is your pre-req GPA because that is important? Also, I got that email too & that makes me nervous because you will be walking into the interview knowing your future depends on it. Have you applied yet? I am waiting for my final grades to be put into the system which should be in one to two weeks before I apply

    MC99: Unfortunately my pre req GPA is only a 3.25, so that doesn't help very much either. I intitally started college with no idea that I wanted to become a nurse, so at the time grades weren't as crucial! I'm kicking myself over it now. It's frustrating because I got very high B's in the science classes, but as far as GPA goes an 80 is the same thing as an 88. With a 4.0 you shouldn't even worry at all! Your TEAS test score is competative as well. I'm applying this weekend- I just need to send it all in and get it over with! If I don't get into the UCF BSN program, I going to try for the concurrent program at SCC. Fingers crossed!

    I am also going to apply to the concurrent program and Daytona State College's AA nursing program because it is 4 semesters and then I could do UCF's online RN-BSN program while I work as an RN. It's a good option for me because I want to be a nurse anesthetist so I need a minimum of 1 yr ICU experience so if I go to Daytona State College I could start working faster and reach a year in the ICU quicker. Your scores make you have a really good shot as DSC nursing program if it is something you are interested in. The application to the school is easy and there is no application fee. Also, going to DSC & then doing the RN-BSN is cheaper.

    I attended a Daytona info session recently. There they will accept 36 persons in Spring 2013 and about 150 persons apply...that was one of the questions I asked them. My current stats overall and prereq GPA is 3.57. TEAS is 84% I was advised to retake the teas if I want to be competitive and apply early so mistakes, if any, can be correct before the deadline expires.. Hope this helps. they look at overall GPA, prereq GPA and TEAS scores to make their selections.

    DSC is also my backup plan if I dont get into UCF. The way I see it, while it may be cheaper, the UCF program is only 5 semesters. but doing the DSC AS and then RN to BSN will take 4 DSC semesters then minimum 3 parttime UCF semesters(up it 5 max). Seminole concurrent program also takes 7 semesters. Its a good plan if one can actually get hired with a AS degree. I hope to get the bachelors out of the way so when I start working I wont have another school inturruption in my life holding me back from my career...I already know Ill have to quit my current job to do this, and I dont want to start over twice. I spoke to a girl who recently completed DSC program she said its really intense, thought it was going to be easy and work at the same time but she had to quit or risk failing. I guess its up to the person. I also know persons who can do both. I am yet to meet someone who has gone to UCF doing the generic BSN and working at the same time.

    Yeah I am kinda starting to reconsider the whole DSC thing because of the time. I am actually starting to look into being a PA possibly and if I decide to do that then the time I would save doing UCF's prgram could help me graduate PA school faster.My big reason to do DSC was I thought it would be a little easier to help me maintain a good GPA but now it sounds like it might be just as hard as UCF's program. From what you have gathered, does UCF and DSC seem to be about the same when it comes to difficulty level
