I want to hear from those accepted to their Nursing Program - page 2

Hey everyone! I know that there is a lot on this site about preparing for the TEAS. I want to hear from the people that have recently been accepted to the nursing program. I took my TEAS today, and... Read More

    I realize this thread is a month old but thought I'd try. I'm also waiting to hear from NCCC. I just took the Teas yesterday (the last time it was offered). I had to study my rear off for it over the past several weeks. I scored a 94 and about died of a heart attack. My GPA is around a 3.6 I think. I'm enrolled in a CPA course this summer and I'll have to take Micro at some point. Who's micro class should i take? The advisor I spoke to said they hoped to have letters out by the middle to end of June but they said July to be safe so maybe we won't have to wait too long. Anyway, good luck fellow students!

    [font=times]got accepted into my bsn program after being an alternate. teas adjusted individual score was 83% (my lowest score was the science section since it has been a while since i took my pre reqs and only used the online practice tests to study), all bs in my nursing pre-reqs except for my c in micro (which made my life so much harder), you are better off than i was. i got points by doing well on the teas having a 3.4 cumulative gpa, health care work and volunteer experience, and being spanish proficient. i'm sure you'll be fine, just keep working hard!

    Hello there!

    Yes, I am taking classes at the Ottawa campus. I was thinking about taking Micro this summer but I had to take CNA to be eligible to apply for the program. I don't want to bite off more than I can chew...but it would be nice to get it out of the way. Last time I checked there was still two spots open in Row's class. I need to make up my mind! Good luck this summer! Maybe we will bump into each other sometime. My name is Duane. I'll be one of the older non-traditional students there. This is a second career move for me...hope it will also be the final one! Anyway, say hello to a baseball cap wearin', slow walkin' old man if you see him!

    I don't know about other schools but I know about the University of Central Florida BSN program.

    I was accepted with a 3.90 pre-requisite course GPA, a 3.32 overall GPA, 83 TEAs score.

    My friend was put on the waitlist with a 3.5 pre-requisite GPA, 3.38 overall GPA, and a 90 on the TEAs.

    So I think, for us atleast, the TEAs score helps a little but the pre-reqs GPA is most important.

    Got into the program, to start in January 2012. GPA: 4.00, TEAS: 84% (I was also disappointed, BUT I have not even cracked the book for the TEAS, so I accepted this result, given that I didn't study at all)

    Your GPA of 3.639, is this your cumulative undergrad GPA or the GPA from your pre-requisites?

    Quote from CarolesChoice
    Just yesterday, I was accepted into TWU's nursing program. (Thank the Lord!) To my knowledge there was roughly 900 applicants for a total of 235 spots. Three programs shared the 235 applicants.

    My TEAS V score was 68 (64 was the minimum to qualify) and my GPA was 3.639.

    In disclosing this information, I am hoping to encourage those who work hard, not to give up, even when you feel like you don't have a prayer. Look at me...I just barely qualified on my TEAS V, but still, I qualified and was somehow selected out of the 900 applicants to attend the program.

    Be sure you apply for your Associate in Arts Degree once your basics are done, and have it BEFORE you are scheduled to start nursing school. If you don't prove to be "core complete" (by literally having your Associate in Arts Degree), the nursing school can require you to take additional classes. Believe me, it almost happened to me.

    Keep the faith...and good luck!

    Just like Hibbzem, my math and science skills were lacking when I took TEAS. I had never had chemistry, had completed Anatomy and Physiology I, and had just started A&P II when I was invited to take TEAS. I passed and was accepted in the program. Let your strengths guide you, absolutely. I had to study very hard to get an 'A' in Anatomy and Physiology II (I had a 'B' in the first A&P), but I did it. One word of advice, work on those math and science skills if they are not your forte. Don't give up, listen to the instructors and follow their directions carefully. Study whenever possible. Learn and try to enjoy despite the inevitable stress.

    Yup, I basically guessed through a lot of it. But if you excel at one topic, I mean really ace it, it can make up for the other topics you may have not done well on.

    Here's the story of how I found out I was accepted:
    I submitted my app in February. Everything was complete with the exception of having a TEAS score submitted. The application deadline was listed as march 1 on the website, so I initially signed up to take it Feb 22. Well, the admissions counselor that I had been talking to encouraged me to wait until I felt I was prepared to take the test. I rescheduled for March 7th. I arrived and I was literally THE ONLY STUDENT in t he room taking the test. yikes. I felt like I had missed the boat or something lol. But, alas I was able to concentrate on the test because there were no distractions. I whizzed though, trying not to take too long on each section. ( I ran out of time in the math section and had to guess on the last 8 answers before time ran out!!)
    When I got my score printed, I headed straight to the admission counselor's office. She told me to come see her when I finished with my score. It felt good to pass, but I felt like I should have scored a lot higher on the test in general. She had my folder in front of her with all of my transcripts, letters of recc. etc. She pulled it out and kind of skimmed it for a moment, and then said "We'd like to offer you acceptance."

    OH MY GOD.

    I could have died! Accepted on the same day as taking the TEAS!! I guess she had everything in order and was planning on offering acceptance as soon as I took and passed the TEAS. I'm still waiting for 3 other colleges to send letters, but I'm definitely excited. I never thought it would go down that way!
