    I only know about the NOVA traditional program. For the TEAS, you have to get 80 or better and you have 3 tries and your out. You also have to get at least a C in 2 semesters of anatomy and physiology. This year was the toughest with people who passed the TEAS and met the prerequsites still not getting in if their scores/GPA were too low. Priority also goes to local residents and if you have a bachelors degree beyond passing TEAS scores and GPA. Good luck

    Does anyone know if NVCC has a point system or something available to students showing how they weigh TEAS/GPA? Also if you get over the required 78% are you allowed to retake the TEAS to improve your score, or once you pass your stuck with your score?

    I tried to talk to an advisor earlier this week, but got turned away because they're in "registration mode" which is fine, because I'm looking at 2011 so I can wait, but any information students/grads can offer in the meantime will be truly appreciated.
    Thanks

    I don't think they have a point system. I think it is just based on the TEAS first, then on GPA. If you pass a section on the TEAS w/ the minimum 78% score you cannot retake it. You are stuck with it.

    Yuck, but it's good to know that once you pass you can't retake the test. I feel like there would be an advantage to having sat through the test and then to go back and retake it (I plan to take the practice test from the ati website--but still having the option to retake the actual test would be nice)
    Thank you for the info
