    They do as far as sciences. They told me initially it wasn't required and then after I already payed for everything I found out they were wrong... I was upset
    That would be annoying. What are you still needing?

    Congratulations on your TEAS, Ladybug3!! That's a great score. Yes, I started about 3 weeks ago, finished bootcamp and now taking pharmacology and health assessment, preparing for clinicals.

    You'll find the program to be well organized. The faculty is professional, yet approachable. They will be your biggest cheerleaders. Things are fast paced the first few weeks, but things calm down after that. It definately requires that you have a flexible personal schedule. Clinicals start about 6 weeks into the program, but your clinical schedule is something you work out with your coach. You just have to put in a minimum number of hours each semester, roughly 18-20 twelve hour shifts per semester.

    Good luck with the application!

    Yeah that was my fault for trying to get in as many options as possible. I listened to what the person on the phone told me thinking they would be knowledgeable about a basic question

    Hey guys! Just an update. I made an 85 on the Teas which correlates to 96% nationally. I hope that helps with my low GPA. I still need to send in my resume, but I've completed everything else. Good luck to everyone! I've began my countdown as well!

    Hi aldrummond. Yes it went well, thanks. The questions were pretty much what you would expect. Why nursing? Why Texas Tech and this hectic, intense, one year program? How do you handle stress? On a scale of 1-10, how do you rate your computer skills? Tell us about a crisis or conflict in your life and how you dealt with it. Do you have any questions of us? The interview lasted about 15-20 minutes. The panel consisted of one man and two women. They were extremely nice and seemed to make an effort to make the applicant feel comfortable and at ease. Some of the applicants got different questions. I sense that the panel has a list of questions from which to choose, and they can taylor the choice of questions to individual applicants. Outside the interview room they had current students assembled in another room to answer questions you might have for them.

    I received the acceptance about 5 business days later. The program coordinators are highly organized. Soon after confirming my intent, I received an email instructing me on Raider student web access and student email. From there a checklist was recieved and instructions on beginning all the other aspects for matriculation. It has been an impressive, fast moving process.

    Have as many prerequisites completed as possible, including the CNA, before the interview. It's not mandatory, but I think it makes a difference. Be very thorough in the application process. I think about 1/3 of the applicants for my cohort didn't even get invited to the interview because of application or qualification issues.

    Good luck and let me know if I can give you any other information.
    Hi Mr. Sensitivity, congrats on getting in! Thank you for the awesome information. I submitted all of my stuff this past Friday and I have everything completed, so hopefully that will help. Good luck to you!
