    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 started hunting through previous threads when I didn't see an answer right away - thanks! I get it now. Hm. Based on that, I don't know. I don't remember what I got in either my undergraduate or my graduate stats classes. For A&P 1&2, and Micro, I do have first attempt A's.

    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
    @CinthiaD92 - I'd try anyway, if it were me. You never know unless you try.

    Why don't you just see an advisor? It's not worth it to stress over your question when you could have it answered by an advisor who will tell you where you stand based on this past semester's applicant pool.

    Or email. They were super responsive when I asked about the classes that I needed to count towards my prereqs from my previous degrees.

    Yep, either/or, but I find it easier to see them in person they can look at all of your information in front of them on the computer and make sure that you have everything done so you are 100% good to apply!

    Worth the try and they can get you in pretty quickly too.

    Thanks guys, I will do that, it's just not the same when an advisor tells you than someone who went through that experience.

    I believe it's only micro, statistics, a &p I and II. Chem would only count towards ur gpa.

    Hi all!

    I just took TEAS today. I'm so glad that it's over now, but I'm also so nervous about the score.... I was told to wait for 48 hours to get the result, so that means I will be spending my weekend just waiting! How frustrating it is!

    Okay, so I don't know why I did this... but I just registered for Pathophysiology in Dallas for the Spring! EEEEEEEK!!! I'd rather take it in Denton, because I live so much closer, but Monday (one day a week) would work better because of my 11 month old.

    I'm also taking online quantitative literacy in the Spring (blehhh???).

    And I'm also looking for a job as a CNA so if any of you future students know of ANYWHERE that is hiring PART-TIME (if it's a nursing home) or FULL-TIME (in a hospital), please let me know!!

    Back to studying for the micro final... Good luck this last week to everybody!

    If you don't mind me asking, how long did it take you to prepare for the TEAS?

    I got the result back. I got 87%! I'm happy with my score, but I'm not sure if it's competitive enough. But I think I will stick with this score. I wonder how others are doing on their TEAS... Not many people are applying to TWU? or just not posting?

    I think I studied for about 2 weeks. As what others said, you'll do fine as long as you go through the ATI book. That's all what I did for TEAS. Good luck on your TEAS and let us know how it goes!
