Hello!:yeah: I know it's pretty early to be starting this forum, but I just wanted to put my voice out there and see if there is anyone else out there hoping to join TWU's nursing program in the spring of 2013? What are you... Read More

    I applied in November through the Texas Online application process. TWU sent me several reminders to send in my transcripts, but I was still undecided. They also assigned me a student number and provided me with access to the Pioneer Portal before receiving my transcripts. When I finally did send my transcripts to Denton last week, I only had to check Pioneer Portal to see that one day later the transcripts were under review and two days later the status was "accepted." Then I called the nursing department to schedule my advisement with Dr. Stankus.

    @ kmlnielsen regarding other info sessions; check the TWU nursing page. Go to the actual location such as Dallas, Houston, etc. and it will tell you when the next session is scheduled. The one I went to was scheduled during TWU's Spring break so that we could tour the facilities. The next may not be until there's another break between semesters. Hope this helps.

    I'm hoping to apply for Spr '13 Dallas. my spring schedule now is a&p I, chemistry, nutrition, and stats. for summer I need to finish up with micro, and a&p II and gov. For the fall I'm planning on taking pathophys on campus. and the remainder two classes I need. I plan to take the Teas V in August before the Sept. 1 deadline after my summerload. We can only take the exam once per application period right? does anyone know how long it takes to process results for the TEAS?
    Im doing good in my spring classes mostly A's, but can come someone tell me if im steering in the wrongdirection or is anyone else doing a crazy class load and is surviving!
    thanks.

    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?
    They actually have an informational meeting coming up in May - I believe it's May 18th. I don't know what time, but last time it was 10am-12pm so I'm guessing it'll probably be the same. When I find out more I'll let you know
    Also, I was accepted to TWU-Denton about 3 weeks after I sent them my application and transcripts. It may have even been slightly sooner than that, but I remember it didn't take long at all!

    Hi! Your class load sounds pretty spot on...I know several people who are taking micro and their 2nd A&P in the summer, and most of them will be taking the TEAS in August as well. And yeah, we can only take the exam once per application period. My advisor told me that it takes a couple of days to receive/process the TEAS score. You sound like you know what you're doing I wouldn't worry, just concentrate on schoolwork. Good luck!

    You are steering in the right direction, but be careful with those summer classes, at my school they don't offer Micro in the Summer only Anatomy. So you might want to check that out before applying to TWU and wasting your money on the TEAS quite yet.

    And yes, you may only take the TEAS once per application period. Make sure you STUDY for th TEAS! The science part is the most challenging, because you never know what will be on there. The TEAS only takes a few days to process.

    Good luck again.

    hey guys, i am applying to the twu nursing program in houston for spring 2013. have any of you applied to the nursing program for spring 2013 yet? i have tried to apply but when i went to pioneer portal to apply it said "applications for the college of nursing classes are no longer being accepted. please check back later". i have already applied to twu main campus and have been accepted. is it still too early to apply to the spring 2013?
    -thanks!

    @htellegen,

    My guess would be that it's just too early to be applying for the Spring 2013 semester. They probably won't open the application until the end of this semester, which is in 4 weeks. Try again then!

    Hi everyone! I'm also planning on applying for SP2013 nursing program at TWU Dallas. I'm so glad I came across this forum. I'm so excited yet scared and nervous and anxious all at the same time. Especially with this semester coming to an end. I'm currently taking A&PII, Comp II, and American Literature. I'm doing great in the classes with A's. For the summer I plan on taking Women's Studies, Hist II, Medical Terminology, and retaking Comp I. I made a B the first time so I wanted to try and make than an A this time around. I'm hoping to take the entrance exam mid-summer or towards the end. I want to have ample time to study. I wish they gave us an exact study guide. =) Wouldn't that make our lives much easier? I heard the TEAS is so random. Especially the science portion. I hope everyone is doing well this semester and those who are taking the TEAS soon...GOODLUCK!!!

    Hi! Have you heard about the ATI TEAS-V manual? I bought that to study for the TEAS with. I haven't started studying yet but I bought the book because I heard it was a superb way to study. I got it off of Amazon! Just thought maybe that would help you out a bit
    Good luck for the rest of this semester! It's almost over, YAY!
