    I am sending my app for UCO tomorrow. I am also taking the TEAS test the beginning of next month. How did you all study, and what should I prepare for most? Also, I saw that one had a 3.3 gpa. I have a 3.36 gpa, but my science is 3.75 gpa. I was a pre-med student until recently, so I have chem 1 through ochem 2 with a's and b's in them. I hoping this might show I can handle nursing classes? Just looking for some help!! Thanks!

    I just got accepted into nursing program at UCO. The reading part of the TEAS test is mostly common sense, and there is nothing you can really prepare, but if you want, I think you should order a book called "Study Manual for the Test of Essential Academic Skills version V" and be sure to learn how to convert from one measurement scale to another. You also need to know how to convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius, and vice versa. I think UCO looks more into your science GPA and overall GPA than the TEAS test score. I only got 75% for the test. My friend's score was also 75% and got accepted so I was confident enough to apply with that score (Her GPA is very high). My science GPA is 4.0, and my overall GPA is 3.97 at the time I applied. My three recommendation letters were all from science classes. My other friend have very low overall GPA (below 3.0), but with a good science GPA and TEAS test score (about 90%), he also got in. I hope all of this info. helpful to you. Good luck!

    I don't know if ethnicity plays any role, but I think being able to speak fluently another language is a plus (not everyone in America can speak English, so it would be great if we have nurses that can translate, take care, and make patients feel comfortable ^^)

    Congrats browneyes!!! I just took my TEAS today, didn't do as well as I had hoped. Adjusted individual total score was 74.7%
    Mean- National: 63.3%
    Mean - Program: 68.9%
    Percentile Rank - National:81
    Percentile Rank- Program: 66.

    I have an overall GPA of 3.66 and a 4.0 science GPA. I am applying to UCO at the end of this month. Do you think I should re-take the teas test?

    If you think you can make better score on the TEAS test => take it again. Anyway, I think you will be fine, don't worry. Good luck to you!

    I'm sure I can do better, it was life science that I did horrible in. Now that I know what to expect I know I can do better! Thanks!!!

    Thanks for the reply jo'lee! Good luck to you!

    I was hoping for a spring break answer, as usual. I guess the Ice Storms set them back a bit.
