    Hmmm I took the TEAS while back. I have all my transcripts. What else would I need to do?

    You need to have transcripts evaluated, submit FAFSA, get pre-approval for any private loans needed for the program, submit three letters recommendation, turn in your essay, and I think that's all to meet the 18th deadline. After that you're interviewed by the DON.

    I'm pretty sure everyone feels the same way

    I didn't study prior to the TEAS because I was told I didn't have to take it the first meeting (I ended up taking it anyway)- my adviser said they like to know where you're at before you have time to cram, so I'm not sure how they factor in the significance of your TEAS scores.
    Someone who passes every section can not re take the test, however, a person who fails a section can study and retake those sections. I would assume they place some significance on scores where the student didn't need to retake? (at least I'm REALLY hoping for this- I know a few people who retested after the pre-req's and killed it). I have my fingers crossed, regardless I want into this program more than anything.

    My advice is not to stress and maybe invest in both study guides? Good luck!
    Hey there,
    So....I keep hearing some weird things about this school, someone told me that you cannot even enroll in the PREREQs until you've passed all the sections of the TEAS....so how were those people you take to able to 're-test' and 'kill' the TEAS sections they failed?

    Here's the thing- you can't listen to what people say. There are so many rumors about MCI that are untrue. You really need to talk to the adviser you are with- they are wonderful at guiding potential nursing students.

    To answer your question:

    From my understanding, if a student fails a portion of the TEAS that could mean they haven't had the pre-req courses at a college level (Math, Chem, etc..) so they automatically are asked if they would like to enroll in the courses. Again, this is my understanding- an adviser could give you a real answer.

    The other scenario is a person who fails part of the TEAS goes home and studies on their own. I understand many MCI students have some college level education under their belt- after you take the test you sort of know what the material is on making it a lot easier to study.

    From the threads I've read it sounds like you can take the pre-req's before passing all sections of the TEAS. But, I'll say this for a third time: Talk to your adviser. Good luck!

    Hi, I've already spoke to an advisor. That is my source of information about not being able to enroll until sucessfully taking TEAS, so maybe they 'changed their policy'....since the example scenario of taking the needed prereq before part of the teas would be ideal for someone who has never taken college course work yet etc.
    Good luck, and I hope you find out soon for the August start date.

    If your adviser said that I would assume that's the way it is. I always feel stupid when I try to justify what I think happens and then am shut down with the real information

    Hi! I start my prerequisites Aug 29th. I'm pretty sure you have to pass the TEAS before you can take the prereqs. They really wouldn't discuss anything to do with the school until after you took the TEAS. The only part of the TEAS I did not do well on was the science, it was like a foreign language to me. Only thing I'm concerned about was the financial aid, I am a single parent, but hopefully the tuition will be covered by grants and student loans....hopefully. My work fortunately helps with that. But good luck to everyone![/B]

    Good luck to you I'm guessing you're going for the November start date? ...make sure to do your best in the prereqs because my advisor told me that they factor those grades into their selection

    I'm not sure which term I'll apply for because of the tuition, I'm applying for grants now. I had heard the same thing with doing well in prereqs since they mirror the actual pace of the program. Hope you do great! Have fun at RN orientation AUG starters!!!!!

    Yes I am going for the November start date, so far I'm taking the Math and Computers Pre-reqs, 99 in Comps, and 95.7 in Math so, so far so good, I'm pretty sure those are really good grades, in my eyes anyway lol I'm not sure that there are a lot of people that have applied for the November '11 start date, a few people have already been dropped. I'm still crossing my fingers, my TEAS scores weren't all that great, but Chem is what i'm worried about the most.....ugh I hated Chem from the beginning.

    Yea the prereqs are all pretty easy I think the lowest score I got was a 98 and I never even had to study. Wait till you get to A&P though a real wake up call I have to study a minimum of 4 hours a day just to get through it. its tough stuff I hear half of the students for nights are failing it and I believe two students from my class will most likely fail
