Hello, fellow nurses and nursing students!
I've recently finished my pre-requisites for the Nursing Programs
at CSUEB and I'm scared I won't become a nurse because of how impacted it is to become a nurse in California.
I have a GPA of 3.77 (CSUEB preq. classes), however I have a score a 64% from the ATI TEAS exam (I plan to retake it in a week from now but I am scared I'll won't score as high as the competitive which is 80%). I also gained experience from home cares by working for elderly with no certifications but I've been working with patients while going to CSUEB for approximately 400 + hours. Ive gotten all As & Bs but never a C.
I've applied to CSULA, CSUEB, & CSUB. I am trying to apply for CSULA but the deadline is before my retake of TEAS, should I still apply with the 64% TEAS score?
I feel like all hope is lost for me because of my TEAS score.. Is there any suggestions/hope/ guidance or recommendations you guys can give me as a pre-nursing student striving to become a nurse?
Am I worthy of becoming a nurse...?
