GGC Nursing Fall 2021

Posted

Hello,

Currently I am a student at GGC and planning on applying to the nursing program for Fall 2021. I just wanted to see who else is planning to apply and we can share our stats.

Hi there!

I am also currently a student at GGC planning to apply this November for Fall 2021. I have four classes left. Taking two this Summer and two in the fall. Currently my GPA is a 3.4. I am currently working to try and get that up to at least a 3.8..praying LOL ...I plan to take my TEAS between December-January so I plan to studying in October. How exciting to see someone on the same path/year/school :)

That’s awesome that you’re almost done with all of your prerequisites. I am taking A&P1 this Summer and planning to take A&P2 during the fall semester. I also plan to take the TEAS in December as well. But I am not sure how long should I study before taking it LOL.

Right! I actually got some advice from the ladies currently starting Nursing at GGC this fall. They told me to take at least 3 months so I can learn my strong and weak areas. I can tell you now, Math is my weakness...LOL May I ask who are you taking for A & P 1 this Summer? You never know, we may have the same professor!

I guess I will start studying in October too. I heard Reading is hard and it’s my weakness.
You’re taking A&P1 too? I feel much better that I am not the only one😁. I was kind of afraid because many ppl said it’s really hard and not to take during the Summer. I have ----------------------.

Yay, that’s great!! Study Buddies!😁

Have you buy the book?

Yes I ordered online from the bookstore earlier this week. I haven't receive anything yet.

I haven’t ordered mine. Do you know what is MHID number? I was kind of confused.

I was confused too! LOL so I contacted the bookstore and professor. It's the connect online 8th edition. Not a hardback book. --------------------- ISBN number listed on the bottom of her email was incorrect but you will look up that same title but for the connect.

Right. I found “Anatomy+ Physiology- Connect Access” in GGC bookstore. Is this is the one you purchased? I am afraid that I might order the wrong one since it’s pretty pricey😁. Thank you for telling me though. I appreciate it.

Right it is very pricey! Like $181 or something. LOL Yes it's correct. And No problem at all. Feel free to PM me with any questions. : )

I tried to PM you but it didn’t work. Have you get your Connect Code? And have you tried to Access the code ?

I haven't received my connect yet!! I ordered it but its showing its still processing so I'm confused.

I'm not applying for Fall, but ---------------------------- is amazing! Best of luck to you two.

Thank you!!
Btw, I just read your comment on the other thread and I saw your TEAS score. You did really good. Would you mind sharing us how long did you prepare and the materials you used to study? I would really appreciate it.

Thanks. So I took some years out of school and when I returned I took three math courses:

Statistics, College Algebra and beginners math course. I honestly believe that initial remedial math set me up for success. With that said, I scored 100's in math, usage and science.

The reading is a lot of interpretation. So you'll read and it'll basically ask how you interpreted the passage. I overthink meanings so I screwed myself there.

The usage was hands down the hardest. We live in a world where we communicate via text with horrible grammar so to have to correct punctuation that I haven't seen examples of daily was rough. I did use the ATI TEAS book (the black and yellow one) and the ATI TEAS app daily (in between classes just practice a few rounds) but I also read books. Like a lot of books ... it gave me a better sense of word placement, punctuation etc. rather than just studying the usage section in the book.

My section scores were 91/100/100/100 and I ranked in the top 1% with only 3 questions wrong (all in reading LOL)

HTH

Oh and point and case why I missed those reading questions LOL

... to answer your second part of your question I studied for 5 weeks with the majority of the serious studying being during Christmas break.
