Anyone applying for Bellevue College nursing 2013-2014 program?!

  1. Hello!
    I am applying this February for the Bellevue College RN program for 2013-2014, I just wanted to see if there is anyone else out there that is applying for that time period as well?!
    Where else is everyone applying?! Anyone taken the TEAS yet?

    I am! I plan on applying to BC and Everett CC for Fall 2013. I might apply at Lake WA Tech. also. I have not taken the TEAS yet. I plan on taking it as soon as it's scheduled at BC in October.

    okkkay! yeah i did my prereqs at lake WA, i thought about applying there but their program isn't accredited. I don't know what kind of effect if any that has on anything but I didn't want to risk it. I am going to apply to Seattle Central and Bellevue and both of their applications are due in February. I am going to buy a TEAS study book and start studying probably in a few weeks and take it whenever I feel confident, lol. Where do you go to school now?

    I'm thinking if I don't get into BC or Everett, I'll apply at Lk WA. I don't know how important the accredidation is either, but that's why it's not my top choice. I'm not going to bother applying for Shorline because I don't have any medical work experience which puts me at less than 100 points.
    I have the TEAS V Study Guide and have started working through it, but have a long ways to go till I'm ready! I am finished with my pre-reqs now, but had been going to BC part time the last two years. I am going to do the CNA program at BC this fall.

    Yeah I don't have any medical work experience either. How is the TEAS V study guide?

    The study guide is good. I went through the reading section and now I'm working my way through the math, very slowly It doesn't go into a lot of detail, but I think it covers all the stuff that you need to know how to do. I plan on just going through the guide and then referring to my texts or online for more help if needed. I bought the ATI practice tests also and I think I might buy the McGraw Hill book with like 5 more practice tests, just to make sure I'm ready!

    I will be applying this year too! I bought the ATI study manual and the online practice tests. I took one of the online tests today and scored pretty well on everything but the science section. There was a lot of chemistry on it, and I haven't taken that yet (chem and stats are my last prerequisites; i'm taking them this fall at BC). The anatomy/physiology questions were very simple though. I'm definitely going to wait until after fall quarter to take the test so I can learn all of this chemistry!
    Have any of you taken the Compass e-write test yet?

    I took the e-write a couple of months ago for application to the CNA program. Luckily I don't have to do it again! It's not hard if you can write a decent essay. It was wierd for me to write without having spellcheck and grammer corrections by word. I'm guessing that's why I got a 10.

    Where did you buy the ATI testing book? Was it on their website?! I looked on there to buy the manual and practice tests and it's pretty spendy!

    I took the TEAS v recently and most of the sections are fairly easy. The science section, though...STUDY! The content on there is mostly basic stuff, but if you haven't taken chemistry or intro biology in a while, I suggest you study that. Knowing what I know now, I am gonna retest once the fall quarter is over.

    what did you score on the TEAS if you don't mind me asking!?
  13. by   dragonfly.
    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?
  14. by   ccchristine5
    i havent taken it yet, i plan to within the next month or two. thats a really good score! good job, do you mind telling me more about the test itself!?
