I had a a question regarding the nursing GPA. Is Bio 101 counted towards that? It is not on the nursing pre reqs list but is a pre req to AP I. With BIO 101 by GPA is 3.4, without it is 3.6. 3.6 sounds better to me :). Bio 101 just happens to be my worst grade of a B-.

Hello, I think it does not count but i'm not 100% sure. I'm going to an info session on 11/01 and will ask. To which college are you applying to? I'm applying to NVCC.

Hey guys. I've been lurking for a while and finally ready to apply to NVCC. I'm a little dissapointed at my TEAS today here's my stats

Nursing GPA 3.77 [3.8?]

Ap1-A

Teas-74%

What do you think...should I retake my teas or another class to boost up my gpa??

Is it too late to get another A&P 1 class in? maybe at another college? If it is too late for A&P1 retake, I'd retake the TEAS. Then I'd retake sociology/lifespan/eng 101/communications requirement or any other class that's offered during winter if you got anything less than an A. By the way I have no clue if your stats are good or not, but better safe than sorry. Just for comparison, my Nursing GPA is 3.85, A&P1 A, Teas 87.3%, and we dont know how good/bad all other candidates are.

I went to the info session at NVCC danbury campus. It was not useful as far as the application process goes, not actual information about the details of the process/grades/pre reqs because the person running it was one of the nursing instructors on the program. It was great that we got to ask a few program specific questions regarding after acceptance but for people that were just starting to learn about the program it was definitely not useful. I also went to an info session a few months ago at Gateway and it was very detailed on the application part of the process.

why would pmedina1216 have to retake A&P I if she got an A??? that's the highest grade you could possibly get. I think her stats are very good. if you check the old threads, its right in line. Of course retake the Teas regardless because you never know if you'll do a lot better.

I thought I read - A as in "A minus". not as a dash and the letter grade A. If it is not A minus then I agree no need to retake it.

Retaking the TEAS is very low risk and low time commitment. My understanding is they take your highest grade, so if you do better, you're more competitive, but if you do worse, you've not harmed your chances of getting in.

Your GPA looks competitive. I don't know that retaking a class would do much to improve it. If you have all As and one lower grade that's pulling it way down, and your GPA would go up to a 3.9 or better if you got an A this time, it might be worth it. Is there even one available you can take between now and the deadline?

But, really, taking a whole course is a lot of time and money for a small potential boost compared to the advantage you could gain by studying for and retaking TEAS. If you get a prep book, and spend even half the time prepping for the TEAS that you would on a course, you can probably raise that score quite a bit.

Bringing a 74% up to, say 80% on the TEAS is going to make you much more competitive than bringing a nursing GPA of 3.77 up to a 3.9.

I am applying

My wife and I were having a discussion

So last year she got a rejection letter for the CCNP and so did I.

Her advisor stated that her computer class expired and was the reason she was rejected. Now my computer class is expired over the 10 year mark. Applied 3 times and they never mention anything to me about the class wondering if that's one reason I keep getting rejected.

Anyone accepted without a computer science class?
