    Hello rumwynnieRN,
    Thank you for you advise, why you did not like TWU? and yes I suck in math, but I am good in conversions. What do you recommend me to study for the drug cal test? I am so nervous about this nursing degree because I heard so many people saying many things about it, that I am not even know what to think. I am going to apply to TWU and PV because I want to have two options, but many people said that the teas is hard to pass. I know the program is hard because you are going to deal with people life's and that is really serious. I really want to do nursing because I do not see myself doing something else. However, I am afraid because I do not want get in the program and then realize that it is hard for me. Please tell me what to begin studying and maybe that will help me to begin a little bit strong in the nursing program.
    I didn't go to TWU -- I just knew people who went there or interacted with TWU students. I went to another school in Texas, way outside of Houston, like in the Big Country area.

    I didn't take TEAS so I don't know what to tell you there. There isn't really anything you can begin to study, other than brush up on math. I don't know if TWU has drug cal (I heard UT did, and they were more stringent that PV, but they stopped giving it because too many people were failing). The issue a lot of people have is figuring out how to study for nursing school because the tests are different.

    Hey lalacb123,
    I hope you doing well, I have a question for you. Do you know anything about the classes that HCC offers to prepare you for the TEAS test? I know the class is for 3 days consecutive, and it costs $75, however somebody told me that is not good. If you know something about this let me know? please. I do not want to waist my time and money. Thank you.

    Hey lalacb123,
    It's ok. Did you get the acceptance letter from PV? I am going to reapply. I spoke with Dr. Smith and she told me,that now that I finished with all my classes; I have a better opportunity to get in. I applied for TWU, however my GPA is 4.6 and they said is not highly competitive so I have to go back and retake one class to raise my GPA . Also I have to pass the TEAS with a 80% if I want to get in. So tell me about you? What are you going to do?

    I actually just received a scholarship to Houston Baptist University and they also have a nursing program. I have to meet with the advisor to accept my scholarship. I will still apply to PV as a back-up but I'm hoping to get accepted to HBU.
