BonSecours Fall 2012??

  1. I am applying to Bonsecours Memorial School of Nursing for Fall of 2012. I take the TEAS V on Jan 11 and I am really really nervous. Especially with the science section. What is the minimum score requirement for BSMCON on the TEAS? I have submitted all parts of the application except one transcript but I am nervous because I took Chemistry in freshman/sophomore year of college (graduated in 2009) and got an F but I am back in school and retook it and got an A. Hopefully they will consider the better grade... YIKES!
    Anyone else applying for Fall 2012??

    I am planning on applying for the Fall 2012 semester! I have all the requirements and a GPA right now of 3.7 the only thing I am nervous about is the TEAS test! I am so nervous for the science & math part because I heard you cannot use a calculator? How hard was it? Could you please respond and let me know? Thanks so much!

    Hey! The TEAS wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. The worst part for me was the science section I got a 75 adjusted score on it. For the math, I would recommend practicing working fast because there are a lot of problems that you have to work out and some have multiple steps to get to the final answer. It is not hard but it is time consuming. They provide pencils and scratch paper at the testing site. I would recommend also the ATI practice book if you haven't gotten it already. When are you scheduled to take it??

    I am also applying for Fall 2012! I am scheduled to take the TEAS Monday evening at Bon Secours. I have been studying the ATI study guide but after reading other comments, I heard that book doesn't really prepare you that well for the science section. Do you have any tips on studying for the science portion?

    Thanks!

    Hii! it usually takes about 4 weeks. For me it took longer becasue I was on waiting list. Yes, I had a degree already in Psychology. Right now I am taking gen ed classes at j sargeant reynolds. I dont actually start the nursing courses until next fall and its not fast paced which is very good

    I've applied for Spring 2013 too! I am anxiously waiting on a decision. The admissions adviser told me that the decisions will be emailed out by the end of this month so that's 6 more days of waiting!
