Ivy Tech - Terre Haute ASN program

  1. Hi, just wondering if anybody out there will be applying for or have completed the ASN program in Terre Haute. I'm applying this month for the fall semester and I am sooooo nervous I won't make it in. I have an A in all my pre-reqs, but I haven't been able to take Advanced A&P yet because I ran out of semesters before the applicaiton deadline Oh well. I scored in the 99th percentile on my TEAS test and all my other grades are A's but I'm terrified not having that class done will screw me on my points. Does anybody know the average amount of points needed to make it into the program? Thanks!

    Hi, I'm applying for the same program but at Ivy Tech Lafayette. I was told the points to get in last year were between 179-242. Like you, I have A's in all my pre-reqs (assuming I earn A's in A&P and Micro this semester) but I still have Developmental Psych and Interpersonal Com to take next semester. I'm very worried that not having those 2 classes will break it for me. I believe I scored in 98 percentile on the TEAS. I will be along wait until March!

    Good Luck to You!!

    Good morning! Let's hear it for Ivy Tech I'm applying to the Bloomington program! I have completed all my pre-reqs as of this semester, with A's in all. You two have me beat because I still have to take the TEAS. I am studying for that now. I was told that the 'class points' average for last year's students was 148 out of 176 possible. That didn't include TEAS points. Since you did so well (both of you) on the TEAS you should be fine - even with a couple of pre-reqs left to take. Let's keep in touch during the next few months, because we all will be a nervous wreck! I will pm you both with my email.

    As for the TEAS - I need some encouragement there...is it as bad as the study guide portrays? I mean our pre-reqs do not require electricity or physics, yet I feel like some of those questions are over my head! I am going to do fine with the reading/english parts. Even the human body section wasn't too bad. It is the geometry portion of the math and the life science that I'm struggling with. Any suggestions??

    Good luck - and like I said, please keep in touch. We can help each other through this

    Hi, I just wanted to join in-I am applying to the Ivy Tech South Bend program. I have A's in all of my pre-reqs except Developmental Psych which I am taking this coming semester. I took the TEAS in November and scored in the 98th percentile. I really have my fingers crossed because I would love to get in there. I am currently living in Lansing, MI but am from the South Bend area and would like to move back. I am applying to Ivy Tech and am an alternate at a school here in Lansing.

    Stdy2BaNurse- I did not think that the actual TEAS test was as hard as the study guide made it out to be. I think if you have been going over the study guide and are brushed up on your math skills you will do fine. I do not remember having any of the electricity or physics questions on my test. I freaked out all day before the test but when I actually got going on it I was just fine. Actually I was able to focus so much that I finished in about a hour! Needless to say I got some surprised looks when I raised my hand to indicate I was done with the test.

    Thanks guys for all your replies. I've been stressing myself out over this whole thing for over a year. I'll just be glad to KNOW one way or the other so I can finally relax. My fiance will be glad too. I'm sure he is tired of having to hear me gripping and obsessing about every B+ I get.
    Studty2beanurse, I wouldn't worry too much about the TEAS. Refresh your self with geometry, there was a lot more of that than I thought there would be, thank god I studied it beforehand. Knowing the formulas for diameter and area of the various shapes will be helpful. There was hardly any anatomy or biology or any life sciece on the test, which I was disappointed about since that is the kind of science I am comfortable with. There was, on the other hand, tons of physics and quite a few questions about the scientific method, of all the crazy things. I personally didn't find the study guide I bought to be much help, I got the Cliff Notes version. Hopefully yours will be much more helpful. Good luck on your test. ~Crystle~

    I have taken the LPN program at the Terre Haute Ivy Tech, then the RN at ISU. That was before Ivy Tech had the RN program. The clinicals were thorough. The program is not easy. You pretty much have to dedicate that two years to nursing school only. I did it with a family and it was very difficult. You have to decide in your mind that you are not going to give up. You have to read, study and have excellent attendence. I was not very disciplined when I started the program, but came out quite the opposite. It was worth all the hard work. Good luck and don't give up! Run your race with endurance!
