    You can only take the TEAS once per application period. So you can't take it again. This will be my 3rd time applying to their program, both other times NO LUCK. EVeryone just heard back of who made it last week and I received nothing. So here I am again.


    Good luck to everyone.

    Hey guys, just chiming in. I just got accepted for Fall 2012. As far as the teas goes, J (advisor) told me that the average that they accept is about a 74, but if you want to be competitive, get an 83 or better. I have a friend who got in with a 74. I got a 93 and you know, I didn't do anything crazy. I bought the book that's on ATI's website (I got it on Amazon), read through the short reviews and did the practice questions and one timed test (while having a few martini's). Only studied for a day and a half with a friend, we made a slumber party of it.

    In short: Take your teas test seriously, but don't take it too seriously. Get that book and just do it. It's not hard.

    GOOD LUCK! I have a few friends applying for Spring 2013, too, so I wish you all the best and I'm here for questions if you have them.

    I'm applying to the Dallas campus for Spring 2013. I'm a second degree student and I have taken most of my nursing prereqs at DCCCD. I am currently taking Microbiology and will take Chemistry and Nutrition during summer school. I want to take the TEAS V as soon as I'm done with Chemistry this summer so that it's fresh in my mind. My acceptance to TWU general undergrad college was confirmed this week and I have a telephone advisement scheduled so that I can be cleared to take pathophysiology this fall. I'm numb now from the process. I also applied to the El Centro College ADN program, but after attending the TWU info session a couple of weeks ago, I want the B.S.N.
    fingers crossed!

    I'm so grateful for this forum because no one else can really comprehend what it is we're going through.

    @thelma

    Your score 79 is pretty close to 80. So thats good. They say to get above 80 to be competitive but I think you will be fine. What is your GPA?

    @ambrekai

    Thank you. Its hard seeing people who have TEAS scores 1 or 2 points above mine who got in and my GPA. But hopefully this time will be it. I just need to study and take that TEAS again. Good luck to you!!

    I'm a second degree student as well applying to TWU for the spring 2013. I've also been taking my prereqs from DCCCD and TVCC. Do you know if they have anymore of the informational meetings? I'm finishing up my general app to TWU this week, so hopefully I can take patho in the fall as well. How long did it take to be accepted into TWU generally once they received your transcripts?
