    Hey everyone! I applied to the Dallas Traditional BSN program.

    Here are my stats based on the worksheet:

    Nursing Core GPA: 3.536
    Pre-req GPA: 3.484
    TEAS Overall Score: 96.7
    Prior bachelors bump

    My total points came out to 62.85 on the worksheet.

    My GPAs are definitely below average, but i know my TEAS score was above average. Is anyone else in the same boat or know if this will balance out and hopefully result in admittance? Hoping for the best for all of you!
    Girl, you're good. Great score on the TEAs. My total is 60.5, and the advisor told me it was competitive. Anxious! Good luck

    So while we wait for mid March to get here, lets pass the time. What are your career goals with nursing. Ill start off, after I finish my BSN at TWU I plan of working in critical care for 2 years then look into a advance nursing degree. I plan on getting my DNP in CRNA. I want to both work in a hospital setting and possibly teach. I have wrote out a 10 year plan. What are some of you all goals?
    Wow, great plan! CRNA is a great field. For me, I hope to get my BSN and work with it for some time (still deciding the specialization). Then I plan to get my MSN and work as a family nurse practitioner. My ultimate goal is to become a nurse educator, either for diabetes or stroke.

    Those are great goals! I have a much shorter plan than you because I am not really sure how everything will work out. When I graduate with my BSN I want to work in the NICU, then I will probably switch to the ER, or something with lots of blood, lol I love trauma stuff. And then after I work a few years, I might go back to school to become either a NP or PA. Im not sure yet if I would like to go back to school again, but who knows I am only 23 years old. I also plan to have more children, I already have a 5 year old daughter so im not sure how things will turn out with work and family!

    I'm 32 I will be making a career move from banking to nursing. I have over 10 years of experience as a Mortgage Loan Officer. The nights and weekend options work best for me. Ill be able to work and go to school.
    I have a previous Bachelor's in Psychology and worked as a case worker for a mental health clinic for a little over 2 years after I graduated from UT in 2013. For the last couple of years I have been working for a title company. I too applied to the night and weekend program hoping to be able keep my job while I complete the program. Can't wait to get out of this cubicle! Desk jobs aren't for me! Though, I am thankful to have the job to pay the bills while I am in school! Good luck everyone! Hope to see you'll in the fall!

    I've thought about going that route as well, but I am not set on it yet. I was able to shadow a surgical nurse this past summer and was able to observe the CRNA's in the OR. I definitely can see myself working as a CRNA. When I graduate, I am hoping to land an internship/residency in critical care and then go from there. I want to keep my options open, but still get the experience I need just in case I do decide on anesthesia.

    I have a similar plan to those looking into becoming a CRNA. I definitely want to work in critical care for a couple of years. Then I would either go back to school for an advanced degree to become a CRNA or maybe go another route and do care flight. A girl I went to high school with is now a NICU care flight nurse and I just think that would be the coolest job ever. I've never flown in a helicopter before, but I love to fly in planes. I would prefer to do something that is high intensity. I view anesthesiology as being on that level too. You're literally holding their life in your hands while monitoring every little thing. I'm currently a licensed property and casualty insurance agent and I'm 26 and cannot imagine doing this for the rest of my life; sitting in an office, quoting people's insurance; its the most boring job ever. I want to do something exciting, and difficult, and something that makes a difference.

    Totally understand!! I used to work at an insurance place but only ONE month. Then I decided to go back to school for nursing. I can't sit in one place and call customers 50 times a day . Your plan sounds great!! Wish you best luck!!!
