Congratulations!! How do you like the program overall? Also how competitive is acceptance ?

Thank you. Overall, I thought the program was pretty unorganized and you have to be flexible and a self-teacher to make it through. I do not believe it was very competitive when I applied in March of 2018. Latest cohort was around 40 I believe, mine is 27. IDK if COVID would affect these numbers or not...

really appreciate it ! my biggest thing is scoring high on this TEAS next week LOL but the school website doesn't have much info on it so this site helps a lot

Hi everyone, 
 

I’m also going to complete the application but have receive minimal communication from the school. I hope that changes once I finish my last prerequisite and take the TEAS. Their having an open house event on the 26th I believe. Hopefully that’s helpful

Hey, 

 

I'll be logged into the open house event as well.. I was able to get in contact with someone by calling the office and she was able to send me more in depth information.. apparently the person who oversees new admissions left abruptly so that's the reason for lack of communication.

I hope we get more information from them. I spoke briefly to Erin, is that the person that helped you? This isn’t the first school that seems to change staff frequently but it just hurts us getting our questions answered. I need to finish a Nutrition class and take the TEAS. Are you done with everything for your application? 

Yep, same person.. I already took my TEAS and am finishing up my Microbiology lab. Thats really the only thing besides the 3 letters of recommendation that are pending. Remember that the TEAS has to be overall 75% as well as each section.

She was helpful. That’s great you got the testing out the way. I’m going to focus on that come October. I bought two books to review. Any tips on how you made sure you passed? 

honestly I had to take it twice, science was a weak spot for me. Theres a TEAS app that was very helpful and free.. its called "TEAS test " and orange. Youtube also helped a lot , Science with Suzanna, Math review with Brendon Craft  and Understanding the different types of sentences for the English.. reading is kind just read the passages and answer the best choice based on facts and not opinions if that makes sense. Are you taking the proctored exam?

Thank you for all the info, I’ll look into them. I’m not very excited to start studying but I know it has to get done. I still need to register so I believe there is a way I can take it at home if not I’ll go into CDU to take it. Hopefully everything goes good and I’ll see you in the Spring. I saw a bunch of the new students at PIH since I’m volunteering there and a lot of them say it’s not organized and we have to be flexible with the school. So I just hope making some study buddies is going to help get me through the program, 2 years is not bad.
