I wanted to start a thread for all who are planning on applying to the Fall 2015 nursing program. I feel it will be very helpful in the process. I just moved to Alabama in May of last year & was originally going for Physical Therapy (not assistant, actual therapist). Well that has fallen through & I feel led to go the nursing route. I already have a bachelors degree from another college so all my prerequisites are done (just wished I would have done a little better -hince my PT problem). I have signed up for my TEAS test for February 5th so hopefully if I don't get what I want I can retake it in time for the application. I emailed one of the advisors at the Shelby campus & she said the average applicant is at 60% /90pts. When I calculate that up it doesn't seem like much. So my goal is to make around 85% or more, but we shall see. I just know I need to do VERY,VERY well on the TEAS to make up for my grades not being all A's.

How about anyone else, where do you all stand with applying this fall? Are you doing full time, night-weekend? Which campus are you all applying to?

I'm currently trying to decide between summer and fall. Fall is probably the best choice but I am ready to get started!

Tara1986- I made an 87% on the Teas V. It can be done!

Thanks afriqueen88, I will try that! I have a few different study books to brush up on some topics like grammar & math. Good luck to you too!

I hear you MominAL, I would like to get started ASAP! I feel fall is better for me because of the night/weekend program. That way I can still work! 87% is awesome! Did you study a lot or just take it to see how it was and you ended up doing great??

I studied a ton. I don't think anyone could walk in to the Teas without preparing and score high. Get the study guide and take the official ATI practice tests. Even more important than learning the content is learning how the questions will be asked and what they are looking for in each section.

I think you should concentrate on science it goes back to elementary science.. grammar know the rules of punctuation and spellings math is easy algebra.. I studied the mcgraw hill book and it didn't help. I cant wait till fall I wish they had night/weekend program in the summer

Good to know, I have the McGraw Hill book as well.....I will definitely concentrate on the science part! Yeah I wish they had it all year round...I would have applied for the Spring...but they just started only doing it in Fall on the Shelby-Hoover campus :(
