    I took the TEAS yesterday and got a 93.3%! I bought the ATI study manual and online practice tests over the summer and I think they really helped. Anyone else take it yet?

    I'm just going to chime in and say, the ATI study guide was VERY valuable to me, and I wouldn't have gotten in without it (at least for fall). I'm just about finished first quarter at BC, and am loving the program. I scored a 92.7 on my TEAS, and from what I understand, was about right in the middle of the field for fall cohort. It's getting more and more competitive each year. Study hard!!

    Thanks, ccchristine5! The questions on the test are very similar to the practice tests and ATI study manual. The reading section is pretty straightforward; it gives you a short passage or paragraph and you answer questions about it. The math section is mostly arithmetic with some very simple algebra thrown in, but be careful not to spend too much time obsessing over your answers and reworking the problems you have already done...I almost ran out of time on this section because I couldn't stop myself from doing that! I finished the other sections with plenty of time to spare though, so with those you probably don't have to worry as much about time. Oh, aslo, you should know that you can't use a calculator on the test, so don't use one when you are studying. The science section contains a lot of chemistry and biology with some reasonably simple anatomy. As for the english and language usage section, I definitely wouldn't have passed this if I hadn't studied the ATI manual, as english is not my best subject. It has questions on subject-verb agreement, vocabulary, parts of speech, etc. Hope that helps a little!

    Ccchristine5, if you're asking me, my cumulative GPA was 3.76; however, BC does not use GPA as a deciding factor. Unless it is changing this year, your TEAS score is the deciding factor. If there is a tie, then they start looking at GPA.

    Do all of you have your applications and documents submitted? I just finished getting all of mine together and I plan on bringing them in on Tuesday. I can't stop worrying that I made a mistake on my application or that my immunization records are not adequate or something. It would be so awful to not get in because of a mistake like that. Do any of you know if they will go over your file and tell you if anything is lacking?

    I applied online and took in all of my documents last week. I think I saw comments from last years' students that said Chi would call if there is something missing or wrong with your documents. I'm going to assume that my papers are fine if I don't get a call or email. I submitted the same documents for the CNA program at BC last qtr, so I'm pretty confident they're are fine. Actually, Chi did send me an email last summer regarding a question about my CNA paperwork. I would assume it's all fine if you don't hear anything.

    Just to let everyone know the sad news - Bellevue College will only be accepting 56 full-time and 24 part-time nursing students this year. We have been accepting 74 full-time nursing students for quite a few years now. That means the lowest TEAS score will probably be considerably higher than in past years. I am an advisor, not a student. I'm so sorry about this. I understand it was because they could not get as many clinical sites as they needed. Good luck everyone.
