    hey all I'm also looking into applying to TWU, but the one in Houston...


    the campus is BEAUTIFUL and ive been really impressed by the NCLEX exam scores for all the TWU campuses combined(as the NCLEX is the MOST IMPORTANT thing for a nursing school in my opinion) and it's annually around 95%

    The deadline is Feb. 1st correct???

    And since i am not coming from Dallas/Houston area, correct me if i am wrong but:
    1. We need to apply to the TWU in Denton on applytexas FIRST, wait 2 weeks for acceptance
    2. SECOND, create a profile on Pioneer Portal
    3. Go to "My tools" and apply for the College of Nursing
    4. Take the TEAS V or send in our TEAS V score...

    Sounds right to me. Just make sure you apply to the school in time - they say on the CON website that it can take up to 6 weeks to process your application to TWU. College of Nursing Home - TWU College of Nursing - Texas Woman's University

    Hello - I saw that your question had already been answered on the other forum you posted in. I believe you have to have 46 hours completed before you can apply to the CON. Your GPA sounds fantastic though. College of Nursing Home - TWU College of Nursing - Texas Woman's University has all the prerequisite requirements before applying. Good luck!

    Hi! I'm planning on applying for the Evening/Weekend program at the Dallas campus Fall 2013. I've got all my prereqs done - took them all at DCCCD, and my GPA is a 3.9 and I've scheduled my TEAS for December 29. I've already been accepted to TWU, and I'll be applying to CON as soon as I take the TEAS.

    I'm a returning student - I already have BA in Sociology, and an MBA. After having my daughter, I decided I wanted to become a lactation consultant. Nursing seemed like the best pathway to it, and after more than 10 years in the corporate world I'm ready for a career that will allow me to help people on a one to one basis. I started out thinking I'd get an ADN, but the DCCCD schools and their classes weren't suited for my needs. My husband is a SAHD to our two kids, and I need to work. The evening/weekend program will be perfect!

    I took my HESI a couple of years ago (and a couple of days before I decided that I couldn't try to work with the DCCCD schedules, lol), and my scores were over 90 in each subject. I'm a little nervous about the TEAS. I just got my study guide in the mail this week, and took the first practice test cold. My composite score was an 82. So, I know where my weak areas are now, and plan to hit them hard. Good luck to all of us in the coming months!!!

    Hello!!! Traditional program for me. That is very cool how you got started onto the path of nursing through having your daughter - that really sealed the deal for me too after I had her I knew it was what I wanted to do (the nurses were fantastic to me). Your composite score in the study guide is pretty darn good! I still am trying to get a score like that on the practice tests. Still unsure if I am retaking the TEAS or not, I'm seeking a second advisor's opinion on that, but I did pay for the practice tests haha. Good luck!! Your GPA is great!

    Thanks! My mom always told me to be a nurse - flexible hours, decent pay, etc. I always thought I didn't want to be responsible for the health and welfare of another person. Then my daughter came along and I thought - what was I so afraid of?

    Hi guys, is anyone here applying with 1/4 A's on first attempt science classes? Which are, just to be sure, microbiology, a&p I and II and statistics, correct?

    I've seen 1/4 A's and 2/4 A's and 3/4 A's with the words "first attempt" next to them, and at the risk of sounding dumb, I have no idea what that means. I'd be happy to answer your question if you can explain that!

    First attempt A's are a preference towards you getting into the program. If you get 4/4 first attempt A's on A&P 1&2, Micro, and Statistics then you get like preference points or however they calculate. Either way, it's a preference like having a previous Bachelor's degree, or taking a certain number of prerequisite classes at TWU.

    It's not like you can't get in without preference points for first attempt A's. It all depends on your GPA and TEAS V scores. So if you have like 1/4 A's and a really high GPA like a 3.9 and a 90 on TEAS V well then...

    I like to read through the past couple years worth of threads that previous TWU nursing students have done. It answers a lot of questions you might have.

    I just have read a lot of students that get accepted usually have 3/4 or 4/4 first attempts and supposably that weighs more on whether you get in or not and well I only have 1/4 so I just want to know If its web possible to get accepted with 1/4, If not then y even apply
