    wow, i can't believe that they were so rude to you!! i'm still amazed that they haven't responded to any of us. if they don't intend on letting us in then they should let us know!!! i applied to thomas nelson as well and i took the teas test a week ago. i met the ladies that ran the rn program at thomas nelson (since they administered the test) and they were so nice!!!!! they told everyone that they will be taking the whole month of april to decide who they were letting in the program and that they will be sending out acceptance/denial letters. they even told us to call them if we do not receive anything by may 1st. funny how they don't mind us calling them but the people at tcc act like you are giving them the plague if you step foot in their office. whatever, i no longer want to attend tcc's program, i can see nothing but negativity coming from the people in charge and that is not where i want to learn. good luck to you ladies and please consider thomas nelson. they have the same accreditation as tcc and they seem more organized and professional. i will be writing a letter to the dean of tcc as well to complain, enough letters should make an impact i hope.

    im glad to hear tncc is much better. i didn't think i could apply because i hadn't taken the teas yet. i heard about the program in time to apply but not enough time to take the test. (im new to the area, so im not familiar with all the schools) the deadline has passed,right? i guess i'll just wait until next year. it's ok. i've waited this long, what is another year. can you tell me if it is true that they look at the gpa of your pre-reqs? how was the teas? its the first i have ever heard of the test and im not sure what to expect and what score they are looking for?

    I went to the counselor office about the acceptance letters and was told that this is what most people experience. I drove from VA Beach to ask about the courses and semesters. The female who spoke with me told me since I attended the nursing information session then I shouldn't have any other questions. I applied in Nov 2010, I have a 4.0 GPA. I was considering going to ODU, but they have additional requirements for applying and the coursework would take another year for me to complete. I talked to ODU admin assistant in the nursing office, she said while the program cutoff GPA is 3.5 they have enough applicants that 3.8 was the lowest GPA admitted. The acceptance letter required that if you were accepting their provisional admittance that you respond in writing before March 18. My acceptance letter included the information for Cohort 1 & 2, I was told they were already filled and they would keep those early apps who didn't get in these cohorts until the May deadline and you could possibly get into cohort 3&4. Good luck

    Hi mcolliver,
    Yes, the deadline has passed for the program at the Hampton campus but not the Williamsburg campus. The TEAS test is pretty easy, just buy the study book online www.atitesting.com and really read through it and you should do fine. The program looks for your GPA based on pre-req's and they are looking for a passing score above the 45 percentile for the TEAS test. The national average for the test is in the 65 percentile. Let me know if you have any other questions

    Hi Ambular127! Thanks for the info and sorry for taking so long to reply. Im glad the TEAS is easy. From what I could find online it seemed a bit intimidating as I havent seen some of the material since high school. Do you take the test at TNCC or do you have to go to a testing center?

    I am now a student Registered Nurse!!!!! I got my acceptance call on May 19 for the LPN to RN Bridge program. My overall GPA is a 3.35 and my GPA for this last semester was a 4.0 ( I was taking A&P II and Eng 112). I want to post this for all of those TCC nursing hopefuls who are worried that they will not get accepted into the nursing program. I am looking forward to hearing from others and if anyone has any question feel free to PM me!

    Congrats on your letter. Does any know if we need to send in an updated copy of our transcripts? i.e. turning another set of transcripts in with spring semester grades on them?

    I don't think so. They would be able to pull your grades up on the computer.

    Hey Ambular127! Have you heard from TNCC? I'll be applying there for next year if TCC doesn't work out. I have started taking some of the pre-regs they require that TCC doesnt, i.e. public speaking.
