Is anyone applying to GSW? What is your GPA and TEAS scores? Have you been accepted or are you a current student? How are the instructors?... Read More
- 0Jun 3, '13 by oliverohmerCongratulations on your acceptance! I hope I receive the same great news next Fall!
My fiance just got a job in the Americus/Albany area, and I am so pleased to learn that there will be an accelerated BSN program near by! I am currently a rising senior majoring in psychology at UNC Chapel Hill and have had my sights set on attending nursing school post-graduation. Could any of you lucky, newly accepted GSW nursing students offer some stats and/or experience you feel helped you in the admissions process?
- 0Jun 30, '13 by antiqua21@oliverohmer Thank you! I am transferring to GSW from a Georgia Military college in Augusta.I will be starting the nursing program in Fall. My TEAS score was low to me but I am not sure what score they favor. I would say to make sure to keep in contact with student services coordinator for any questions that you may have for the program. Everyone you may come in contact with during this process will make sure that you have everything you need. And to send application packet to SON as soon as you can.
My TEAS score: Adjusted Individual Total Score: 62.0%ATI Academic
Mean - National: 64.3%
Mean - Program: 70.6%
Percentile Rank - National: 43
Percentile Rank - Program: 24
- 0Mar 18 by Notorious9Hi I just got into GSW's Accelerated BSN program for Fall 2014 so now I have to look for an apartment since I will be relocating to the area (and really don't want to live on campus but might have to) and I was wondering if someone could give me some insight on nice places to live in Americus or maybe Albany. I have friends from Albany who are encouraging me to move to Albany instead of Americus because they dont think I would like the small town...but I really would like to hear from someone who has attended GSW.
- 0May 23 by azaldivaHello! I am currently a senior in the gsw nursing program! I'm from Atlanta so moving to americus was quite a culture shock! However, I did end up getting use to it this past year and have found it very nice because you really have nothing to distract you from your studies. I wouldn't reccommend you living in albany even though you can may have some of your clinicals there. You will be spending a majority of time on campus. Especially your first semester with the skills lab. Having to commute every day to go spend a long day at the skills lab can get annoying. It is a very small town but honestly its quite relaxing and a great place to go to nursing school because you have NOTHING to distract. There is only 1 bar and many restaurants. A lot of people live in turton properties but those are overrated and expensive. Rented houses is much cheaper and a better deal for your buck!
