I graduated high school last year with a 3.5 GPA and attended college for 2 semesters ( I got a 3.87 GPA in college so far). Also, I've had straight A's through all my science classes I've taken so far. I wanted to transfer into Middlesex County College's nursing program. One of the requirements to get into the program is to take the TEAS test which you're only allowed to take once. The College states that there is no required score to receive on the test; it's just another factor that goes into their decision making process. Anyways, I have a bit of standardized test taking anxiety and I didn't do as well as I thought I would on the TEAS exam (I got a 66% it said proficient, the national & program averages are both 64%). I'm extremely anxious about getting into the college, I really, really, really want to go there. I need advise, based on my credentials what are my chances of getting in? I'm a smart hardworking student and I just want the college to see me as that, I don't want them to define me over one exam. I'm soooo anxious I just need advise.

Looks to me that they will consider you as potential candidate for their nursing program. I am a MCC nursing school alumni. I had about the same TEAS score as you (def not above). Your GPA is very good, that might actually improve your chances.
BTW, I loved their nursing program.

Hi I'm an Mcc student also. I'm currently studying for my teas but trying to get into a nursing program at a different school. It seems that you have a great gpa so I don't see why you should not get into the program. I have bad test anxiety also. I do better in classroom exams than state exams as most people
