    No TEAS required......for the accelerated B.S.N. program. I applied to the program for May entrance. We just moved to the state on the 23rd of December. VCU was the only school I applied to before even coming here bcos I was SO sure of being accepted.

    Now that we are here I'm in the process of applying to the JSargeant Associate program, John Tyler associate program and maybe at Virginia State. I need all my bases covered.

    I will tell you though, Virginia is the strangest state I've ever lived inlol! And I've lived as far west as Alaska! The tuition here is CRAZY and to apply for domesticity is even crazier! We are a military family and have had it so easy when we move to get into schools, driver's licenses, our kids registered in school....but not here!

    good luck in your choice! I am still waiting a few more weeks to hear back from VCU............I have never endured anything so nervewracking in my life

    You and me both! Two more months lol! Before applying to VCU I had no idea how competitive it was.......so that's what's making me so anxious!

    Best of luck..............hopefully we'll both find out soon. I'll post my reply :-)

    I can really only apply to areas around Richmond, VA or to Chapel Hill. Myh usband is deploying to Iraq and I need to be around family to help with our 3 kids....yes 3 lol!

    congrats on getting into USM!! That's got to be an awesme feeling! Are you going there or is your heart set on another school? I've heard of good things of Medical University of SC...don't they have a chiropractor college?

    The only program I"m gonna apply to are the Bachelor's and Master's, not sure which schools, will see in about a week when we get there :-)

    hi all,

    i've been lurking for a bit on the boards and have gotten some pretty good advice on writing an essay for my nursing application. so now that it's been written i'm wondering if the opening paragraph is too bland or if it should be switched to more of a personal narrative.


    here is it how i'ts written so far for my 4 page "traditional essay"


    the excitement i holdin the thought of saying "i am going to nursing school" is beyond measure. nursing is such an esteemed health careprofession thati know with an education from virginia commonwealth university i will excel in greatly. my decision to attend virginia commonwealth university relies heavily on the school's dedication to community programs, its position on research and imparting knowledge to its students. coupled with my compassion, strength and resiliency, a bachelors degree in nursing from vcu will solidify the beginning of a remarkable journey throughout my nursing career.


    here it is from my personal narrative that's in my application packet:

    "keep pedaling!" is what i yell sundays while cheering on my son, as he races around the bmx track. when i am not cheering, i am on a 20" cruiser myself riding the track. my love of bmx happened on a whim a few years ago. within minutes of watching i was hooked! the physical intensity of using my body to race over bumps and through the turns is like no other. just as exciting as riding is seeing my son working hard and crossing the finish line first, because he did not give up. as a bmx mom i use that as a motto "never give up," to provide constant reinforcement for our love of life-long learning, whether on track sundays or throughout the week when i put our bikes away and become a homeschool mom.

    so i'm tryin to have my app of course stand out, but i don't want to come across as not too serious, and lackign personality, but also nott too much personality and not serious enough. any advice will be ever so greatly appreciated!
