OshKosh Accelerated Bsn 2018

  1. I am applying for Oshkosh Accelerated BSN May/October 2018 cohort. I am really nervous. I took the teas V once and did very poorly. Has anyone taken the new verson?What is the expected score to get in? How is the interview process. After submitting the application and finishing teas test how soon do we find out if we got in? I live in Oregon. Is there anyone apply live in Oregon
    too?Any answer would be really helpful.

    I was told that the Teas wasn't the biggest factor in your acceptance decision; that it just needed to be at or above the average for the school on the site. which is 65.6 I believe. I was told the major factor was grades, and your experience in a medical stetting. If you have those set, than you might not have to worry about the TEAS. The interview was pretty simple, just read the info online, have a set plan for financial aid, study habits, time commitment etc. you will have to tell them this in the interview. They send out an email interview/essay before the phone interview as well so make sure to check your email. Where in Oregon are you? I am in Oregon and got into the February cohort of '18. They gave me a response 4 days after the interview, but I hear it takes longer, up to a few weeks. Good Luck!

    I live in Bend. Thank you for your reply.I am hoping to get into the one that starts in May but it seems like the cohort fills up very fast. I am still studying for the teas. Where in Oregon do you live?

    okay, Bend will be a good location! They do seem to fill up fast. I was originally trying to go for October but that didn't happen ha. Either way, once you get in it is just a year! I live in Portland! I was told I might have to travel to other locations for clinicals though, so we will see.

    Hi! I'm also in Oregon, in Corvallis. I got my acceptance letter for the May cohort today! You asked about how long it all takes - I submitted my complete application in mid-July. My interview was scheduled for 7 weeks later (early September). And I got my acceptance letter 7 weeks after that (today). It was a painfully long wait, but now I feel so relieved to know what my future will hold. I can't wait to get more information.

    You also asked about the TEAS. I don't know what the old version looked like, but I found the new version fairly straightforward. I did a lot better than expected on it. Hopefully you will too! I got the sense that it's really the whole package that they look at when making admission decisions. I did not have a lot of healthcare experience (CNA for 3 months and birth doula for a while but that was a long time ago). My undergrad GPA also wasn't good - just a 3.003. But that was 20 years ago. My more recent prereq GPA was 3.9 and I did great on the TEAS. I also have a PhD. I think my more recent academic performance and general life experience outweighed my lack of healthcare experience and low undergrad grades. I can't wait to meet the others in my cohort and see what the other students are like.

    Good luck on everything! You've gotten some good advice on this and other threads.

    I just got my acceptance letter for the October 2018 cohort! I'm graduating this spring with my bachelors so it was the earliest one I was eligible for. Has anyone else applied or got accepted?
