    After all that is what separates a BSN degree versus an ADN degree, we are trained to use our critical thinking knowledge and research the best clinical evidenced based practice.
    Honestly, after that, I stopped reading. What do you think of LVNs then?! Goodness!

    Congratulations! All that hard work paying off.

    I'd lay off the BSN is better than ADN though. I know a number of ADNs who are great nurses. I know a number of ADNs who plan on getting graduate degrees. I know plenty who are perfectly happy to stay ADNs. In the end, they're all RNs who had training in evidence based practice.

    "After all that is what separates a BSN degree versus an ADN degree, we are trained to use our critical thinking knowledge and research the best clinical evidenced based practice. "

    I hate to take the wind out of your sails....but:

    1) Don't be so proud of being the bottom grading scale.
    2) I really hope that auto-correct is responsible for replacing the word "baccalaureate" with "bachelorette" (the latter is a tv reality show about unmarried women trying to become engaged).
    3) "After all that is what separates a BSN degree versus an ADN degree, we are trained to use our critical thinking knowledge and research the best clinical evidenced based practice." - Oh, come on!
    4) "However, there is always one that is “most correct”. Those pesky priority questions and select all that apply will always be the death of me. In this particular course there were three exam questions that I knew were reasonably debatable and I was going to find the evidence." - And you want to be a nursing instructor?

    "And that’s exactly what I did, as a Bachelorette nursing student we have been taught that the best practice is evidenced based. After all that is what separates a BSN degree versus an ADN degree, we are trained to use our critical thinking knowledge and research the best clinical evidenced based practice."

    A) What the dickens is a "Bachelorette" nursing student??

    B) Do you really believe that nonsense about "critical thinking" being the difference between BSN grads and ADN grads? Do you really think that ADN-prepared RNs are just mindless automatons repeating rote tasks?

    i dont understand how this is even an issue... use an incorrect expiration date. card declined? it is likely you failed (yet spent $0). Unable to reregister? It's likely you passed.

    That's not true. People have reported getting charged when they've passed. It doesn't happen every time, but it has happened. That's an expensive risk to take just because you're anxious to know.
    You're right, there may be a very, very select few where the trick doesn't work. That's why it's wise to use a card with less than $200 on it. If it results in a false result, you're not out any money.

    Agree with previous posters - if this test was difficult for you, then you might want to reconsider nursing altogether.
    How very supportive. I don't think one's anxiety over an entrance exam is an indicator that they won't be able to cut nursing school. The time limits and pressure to get a competitive score can really throw you off your game. For most people, the TEAS is the final step after several semesters of hard work that can make or break your chance to get into the program you've worked your ass off for. No pressure there! lol

    I'm not saying that nursing school is going to be easy by any stretch- but it's a step by step process and for applicants, the one focus is the one in front of you- getting accepted. You revamp your game once that happens and begin preparing for the fun of nursing school exams.
