    Hello All - I am new to this site and have found a lot of your posts helpful! I will be applying to the nursing program at the end of this coming spring semester (2011) and have a few questions about the program.

    1) Can you submit applications to the traditional and hybrid online program, or can you only apply to one program at a time?

    2) Have you heard anything about the first come first serve basis for reviewing applications? I am extremely nervous about how late I will be applying. I will have one last pre-req to take next spring (BIO 142), I won't be able to apply until grades are in...which does not leave me much time.

    3) Besides BIO 142 I don't have many classes to take for the spring. Are there nursing courses anyone would recommend that would count towards the program?

    4) I keep seeing references to the traditional or accelerated program. Is the accelerated program the same as the online hybrid program? Or is it different?


    I would appreciate any information and advice!!!!

    Thank you!

    Hi Qtpiecal,

    1) Not sure if this will change in the future, but you ARE allowed to apply to more than one nursing program at a time. If you are admitted to more than one program, the nursing department requests that you notify them of any offers you will not be accepting so that those "slots" can be offered to another student.

    2) As of now, admission is to the NVCC nursing program is no longer on a first-come, first-served basis; it's entirely merit-based (with preference given to Virginia in-state students) and competitive, since only a certain number of slots are available each year. As long as you submit your application requirements before the deadline, you will be evaluated equally among all candidates.

    3) Only admitted nursing students can take nursing courses. However, I highly recommend completing any or all nursing co-requisites before beginning the program. These include non-nursing courses like PSY 202, HLT 141, etc. Seriously--having any of these done beforehand will make your life so much easier.

    4) That depends. Sometimes the nursing department offers an accelerated in-person nursing program, which includes a full-time summer semester. The other one is the (accelerated) online-hybrid program, which also includes a full-time summer semester. It may be that the poster is using the term interchangeably, or that he/she is specifically referencing one of the programs.

    Hope this helps, and good luck with your application!

    For the TEAS I would definitely practice the math section - seemed like I had plenty of time for the reading and English section, but I was very rushed to finish the Math. You are given no calculator so definitely know how to do the practice problems in the teas study guide (add, subtract, multiply, divide) all long-hand.

    Know conversions well also (1kg = 2.2lbs) etc.


    I personally found the reading section and math sections easy - especially if you prepare.

    I would study up on the English section (grammar, punctuation, spelling) - I didn't do as well as in the other sections, but this has always been my weaker area. There are a few questions where you have to choose the correctly spelled word and there are vocab questions as well.

    I felt like the TEAS study guide is a good prep-guide for the test.

    Wow! I'm so glad I checked this thread! Most of the study guides are putting the conversions in the SCIENCE section, not math, so I thought we didn't have to worry about it! That could have ended badly!
