Hello everyone!:wavey: I am starting this thread... a year early. That is how much I want to be accepted into the Fall 2013 BSN program at TWU in Dallas. I am taking my TEAS on August 30 so that if I have to, I can take it... Read More

    Hey Broonie717 - way to go! That is excellent. I got an 84.5% - I know I could have done better, but only studied for 3 days. I'm in a bind whether to take it again or not knowing that I might psych myself out and be so nervous I do worse.

    carlajeanx3 - I believe it opens in December. It says it somewhere on the twu.edu/nursing which answers most questions that people tend to ask on these forums.

    Alright thanks! I guess I must have just skipped over that or something. Congrats to everyone on their TEAS score! (: I took mine this past saturday and made an 88.7% no idea how! I hate that you can't use time from other sections! It was horrible trying to finnish math in that little amount of time I had 30 seconds to go on the last few questions! haha

    That would be soooo much better if you could use the time from previous sections!

    How are everyone's last pre-req classes going? I'm in Microbiology right now and can't wait for it to be done. I want January to be here now so I can apply!

    Hey all! I took the TEAS in August as a practice as well. I got a 78.7% and I'm going to definitely take it again. I studied with the study guide they sell in the TWU book store and highly discourage it for anyone else. There were so many typos, especially in chemistry!! I am going to study with the ATI study guide this time. I was also thrown off by the weird plant and atmosphere questions on the TEAS. Did anyone else get questions like these?

    Currently I am retaking government, history, and financial and quantitative literacy - and then also pathophysiology. I think most of the people in the patho class applied for Spring 2013.

    If I get A's on the classes I'm retaking this semester I'll have a 3.621 GPA and a 4.021 with the bump. I have A's in all the preferences except for A&P2 (shouldn't have taken both A&Ps in the summer!)

    Does anyone know if I should apply after I take the TEAS late January? Does it matter if you apply early? I'm sooo nervous even now.

    I'm glad there's a forum with people in similar situations. I bet we'll all have stress ulcers by April. Good luck!

    We're using the TEAS 5 as an entrance exam, and I have found little correlation of teas score to success in the program. Waste of time & money I think.

    Yea, I think it is a good idea to take the test beforehand as a test run before the actual deadline. Trust me, I applied to another nursing program last year and was not worried about the test, but of course, things came up that day and my mind wasnt right and I ended up not doing as well as I would have liked.
    The advisors at TWU said that an 80 is a competitive score, so I think as long as your GPA is solid and you are close to an 80, you should be good. 78 is not a bad score at all!
    As far as studying, I would recommend the ATI Study Manual all by itself. Don't waste your money on any others. It gives you great reviews and practice tests that are VERY similar to the actual exam. Read it front to back and do EVERY practice test and especially the ones at the very end that are over all the sections. I timed myself and everything just like the real thing and my scores on that were pretty much the same as I got on the actual test.
    You can apply whenever you want, just be sure you can send in the results before the Feb 1 deadline. Good luck to everyone!

    Broonie - did you take the test prior? I know that you posted your recent score and it was awesome. I got an 84.5 and now looking at the SPRING 2013 forum - the TEAS V scores are all over the place for those accepted. I am wondering if I should retake it. On the one hand I think that if I take it again I would definitely do better but on the other hand the nerves from knowing I MUST do better might get to me and make me do worse...

    Such a dilemna.

    Stats again: 3.596 GPA (4.0 science 4/4 First Attempt A's) and 84.5 on TEAS V.

    Hey nanerz, I did not take this test prior, it was a different one completely that was called the PSB. This was my first time taking the TEAS V, but i wanted to take it early enough so I could retake it before my Feb 1 deadline if I needed to improve my score. In my opinion, I think your score is great. I told myself if I scored anything over an 80, I would not retake it. Soooo, I actually think you are good, but you know, I am not the one picking, haha. But based on all the posts i have read on here over the past few semesters, I think you have a pretty good shot!

    Hi all,

    I'm also applying to TWU fall 2013. I hope everyone who is applying for Fall will pass! I'm planning to take TEAS V sometime in November, but I haven't got an acceptance letter as a transfer student. I thought I would register TEAS after getting the letter from TWU... I applied as transfer student about 3 weeks ago. Can anyone tell me how long it takes to get it from TWU? Good luck to you all!
