I am finally writing a thread on here and hope that I can take any advice that can be given! I dont really know what to write on here but I'll just put out the basic problem as of now.
Im 22, live in Washington and though I started college at an early age (I did a program called Running Start) I didnt do so well with school in the past and have had MANY retakes, my gpa now is a 3.2. Since nursing programs are now getting REALLY competitive, I am very limited as to where I can apply. I've been done with my pre-reqs for about 3 quarters now and applicatoin deadlines are coming up. I am taking the TEAS exam again this Friday (I scored a 75 the first time I took it) and my goal is to get over a 85. I need this in hopes as to getting into the Bellevue CC program. Does anyone know any other nursing schools that are not so tough as to class retakes and gpa? I dont mind going out of state. ANYTHING will help. I want to get my life together. Become a travel nurse and help kids!
Also any tips as to how to kick ass on the TEAS would help. I do well on the online practice exams but when it comes to taking the real test, I have anxiety!
Also, I noticed the first time I took the test, some random science questions seemed to be thrown out...it was nothing like in the manual or practice exams.
Thank you for your time!
