    Hi! I will be applying at TWU for my BSN. I hope to start Fall of 2013 and I am both excited and scared! At the moment I am at HCC and will be finishing up the last of my classes, which are:

    Fall 2012
    A&P 1
    Chem
    Humanities (which I will be a Philosophy course)

    Spring 2013
    A&P 2
    Micro
    Speech (I will be taking just to receive an Associates degree)

    That's what I have left at HCC and I will be done in Spring 2013. As you can see, I saved ALL my science courses for last. I did that because I really want to Ace them. My calculated GPA when I transfer will be a 3.7+ and I have yet to take the entrance exam. I'm coming towards the end of my 'HCC journey' and I am absolutely freaked out about not being accepted into the Nursing program. Eeeek!

    I have heard stories of people not being accepted even though they have good GPA's, but I try not to freak out so much. I was wondering how many applicants are accepted per year. I tried looking for it in the FAQ's section on TWU's website, but I don't see any talk about it.

    Well, good luck to all the future nurses!

    Good luck to you! Make sure you ace those science classes. They accept 110 students each term. But don't stress out. There are many different factors they look at.

    Hi, for the 110 students, which TWU campus are you referring to?

    Sandra, I don't think you can apply to the nursing program until you have completed the courses which means you won't be eligible to apply for Fall 2013 since the application deadline will be Jan/Feb. Someone correct me if I an wrong. I am taking A&P2 this Fall and will be taking Micro next Spring but I was told I cannot apply until July for the Spring 2014 class start.

    Welcome to the thread, Sandra! I'm pretty sure though that you won't be able to apply to begin the nursing program in Fall 2013 because you won't have COMPLETED your Spring 2013 semester by the time you apply in February (which is the cut-off date to apply). You will have to wait to apply, and hopefully start the nursing program in Spring 2014...unless you can finish A&P 2 and Micro before the Spring 2013 semester?

    Hope that helps! I would advise talking to an advisor on the TWU Denton or Dallas campus; they can let you know the exact process of applying and making sure everything is in order!

    Good luck with your remaining classes!!

    Darn, you're right. I will not be able to apply for Fall 2013. Well, I suppose I can try to take pharmacology at Coleman during Fall 2013 to get it out of the way. Bummer.

    Hi everyone! I am also applying for spring 2013. I just wanted to let you know that I waited the last minute last semester to sign up for patho online at TWU and I was able to register. Basically they will not allow y'all to register for the online course until everyone who is a transfer RN-BSN is in the course. I think it was worth taking online. Although I spent a lot of time studying for the class, my grade was a high A.

    I admire your perseverance! Study study study for the TEAS - the prep book on the ATI website does wonders to prepare you. Do you mind if I ask how many of the first attempt bumps you have?

    Hello all!

    I haven't posted in a while because I have been busy taking a summer chemistry class to boost my GPA. So this will be my 3rd and HOPEFULLY last time applying to TWU. My old GPA was a 3.73 I believe and I had a 72 on my TEAS, and I did not get in. My new GPA is 3.84 and I will be taking the TEAS again because I was told that getting above an 80 is competitive, unless your GPA is a darn 4.0 which mines isn't. SO here I go again. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask because I have been through this quite a few times. I wish everyone the best of luck guys!

    Yes, it is a bummer. Sorry I hope to take Patho in Fall 2013 after I apply for Spring admission. Good luck to you.

    Yeah I got to keep at it! I have that book and I studied for it last time but I think I just get nervous before the test and I changed alot of my answers. They always say go with the first one you choose. I always overthink things. And first attempt bumps meaning retaken classes? Only chemistry and I believe a history class.
