    If one is accepted for admissions, but performs poorly on the TEAS, will they be dropped from admissions? I am working on my math skills, I HATE math tests, and I would hate to gain admissions and be denied due to TEAS performance.

    I am going to attend an info setting, but I am curious.

    Since it's part of the final admissions requirements, I would say that yes, you would be denied admission. You don't have to score very high to pass and you can take it more than once. I have a study book that I skimmed through; maybe it would help for your math skills? If you're local, we could see about meeting up and you can borrow the book. As long as your other subjects are strong, your overall score should be fine.

    RunnerRN2b2014[/URL], I have to take the nursing classes as well as A&P 1&2, Micro, and Med Term. I am concerned that my course load will be too much. I am also working on the weekends for CHS. Do you have any suggestions on which classes to take together? I will try to order my uniforms by next week. I'm still waiting for my advisor to return my call so we can meet and she can remove the hold. I don't know if I will be able to register in time on the 12th. I'm glad the TEAS wasn't too much of a big deal for you. I will just study for a bit and hope for the best!
    You'll take A&P 1 and Med Term with NUR 101, A&P 2 with your second semester intermediate, and micro with your 3rd semester intermediate. Med Term is pure memorization! There is no class time involved other than the first class meeting so you can study those whenever you have time. You're guaranteed a spot in NUR 101 and I don't think gen ed and pre-nursing students register until the 19th so you should be fine as long as you speak with your advisor on Monday and have her unlock your hold. Good luck with the TEAS!

    So it seems as though you really don't have much control over your schedule. I have a feeling this program will be one of the hardest I have ever done. I am prepared to do what it takes though. I am even considering on campus housing so that I can be away from distractions at home. Thanks for all of the advice!!!

    You really don't have any control over your schedule. All NUR 101 students (not sure how many for spring--I think around 64?) will have the same schedule for that class (class M/Th/F and clinicals T/W) and most end up in the same A&P lecture/lab since you can only choose the one that doesn't conflict with nursing class. Classes are hard and the instructors expect a lot; however, you should never feel like you're not going to make it through. The support from classmates, instructors, and the Support Center are always there to help you be successful.

    I have a 3.8 GPA, I made a B in Math. It was not a higher level Math though, just algebra.

    Well shoot, if there is not a specific cut off then I feel better. I did do fairly well on my ACT, and I have heard the TEAS is not as bad as the ACT. Did you take the ACT/SAT as part of their requirements? Did you find the TEAS math easier than the ACT math.

    Sorry for the bombardment.

    The ACT didn't exist in 1985 when I graduated high school. LOL The English sections of TEAS were really easy for me. I scored 100 on those sections. The math wasn't horrible; luckily I had taken math/dosage calculations recently. I reviewed the science portion and I had just finished A&P 2 and am in micro now so that helped a lot!
