Hello Nursing World!
I am currently enrolled in a bachelors program (in biology), and I am about a semester + 2 summer sessions away from graduating, but I want to switch and enroll in a nursing program. I have had several people look at me like I am crazy to stop now, but I want to get my pre-reqs done so that I can apply in time to be considered for a program starting Fall 2013 or January 2014. I don't want to wait anymore to get this started!
I am looking to apply at J Sargeant Reynolds and NVCC. Anyone have tips/experience on either of these programs? I would be moving to either area, so if anyone has tips about the local atmosphere, that would be great, too! I know a high GPA in pre-reqs is a MUST and that some sort of Kaplan test is involved.
Does anyone have a book they recommend to study for that? Also, what is the TEAS test or whatever it is called? I get so nervous thinking about this, and it sort of consumes me if I think too much about it. This would be a big change for me, and I want to be happy with it! I know it will require hard work but I am willing to do it! Any advice or insight is GREATLY appreciated!
