    Hi everyone,
    I was wonderinf if it would be at all possible for you guys to kinda give me a roundabout of what the GPA and the TEAS scores were for those accepted? Like what was the lowest scores accepted? I'm trying to see if I will even have a chance for Fall 2011. Thanks!
    GPA: 4.0
    TEAS IV: 82.4

    I really think they weight the essay and references significantly, maybe more so than GPA.

    they definitely use a point system. you get a certain number of points for your full GPA, your math and science GPA, your TEAS, your essay, each recommendation, and the number of prerequisites that you already have out of the way. So I know a couple students who had GPAs in the 3.5 range and a middle of the road TEAS and made it. Plus, another friend had a 4.0 GPA and a lower TEAS and didn't make it. So it DEFINITELY is more than just the GPA and TEAS.

    Having said that, i had a GPA of 4.0 at DU, and a math and science GPA around 3.7
    Then my TEAS was 86.4

    Thanks guys for replying! I had a meeting with the admissions department earlier this week and I did leave feeling a bit more confident! After looking at my transcripts she said that she thinks I am definitely in a good place to apply for the fall 2011 program. I have a few more classes that I need to complete and I am going to do a few of them in the fall. I am hoping to get into the BSN program but will also be applying for the LPN program in May as well. That way I do have some back up. I asked what was the lowest GPA accepted this year and she said a 3.2. The essays and the reccomendations certainly weigh heavier than the GPA and the TEAS score if thats the case! She also said that I could use my ACT score if it was really good as opposed to the TEAS. I need to locate my scores though to see if its worth applying with them or not. Well wish me luck!!

    Hi everyone! Just wanted to check back in and see if you all have started the program yet? If so how do you like it so far??

    we started on August 31st. It's definitely a time consuming program! But it is doable! I can't speak for everybody but i am loving it! We had our first exam this week and that was an experience in itself! Nursing is a completely different way of thinking....so it was a bit of a shock to say the least!

    We managed though...and now we know what to expect. So to keep it short....it's going well! Have some crazy studying lined up for the next week though....all 4 classes have an exam as well as a few projects that need to be finished to get them out of the way. So there will be a LOT of time management/prioritizing going on.

    Can anyone tell me more about the accelerated program at DU? Do you have to complete all the "Foundations of Excellence" and "Foundations of Health Professions" by the time you apply to be accepted into the accelerated track? Or can you apply and then finish up what you need in the summer semester? My schedule for this fall and winter leaves me needing medical ethics, pathophysiology, and their Diversity in Society class. I could easily take those in the summer if they'd consider me in the winter.


    Does anyone know if you can apply to multiple campuses at once, or both the LPN and BSN programs? If you can, can you use your two letters of recommendation for the applications or do you need new ones for each app?


    I emailed them these questions and they never responded to me. Next step is to call, but any info I receive in the meantime is great

    I would practice the for the TEAS test. You need over 80-82% I believe to get in because it is competitive. The test has 5th grade science questions that really brought my grade down, but as long as your overall score is high enough your good.

    A GPA over 3.5, your own essay (not paid for), professional recommendations, and the TEAS test...and you are in. Good Luck
