National University San Diego Cohort 66

Hello Pre-Nursing Students! I thought I'd start a new thread since the application deadline for Cohort 66 is only few months away. 

I plan on applying for November 2020 deadline. I recently transferred from a community college and will be taking BST 322 and ILR 260 with NU. I will also be taking the TEAS by October. Please feel free to share your stats: GPA, TEAS, work experience, second degree (if any).

For those who have taken/will be taking the TEAS. What study materials do you recommend and how long did you prepare for the exam?

I have emailed the National U's Nursing Department and they said "there aren't any particular score that is required but the average score of those getting accepted into the program range anywhere from 83% to 89%". IDK what that means but the averages for the latest cohort are:

TEAS: 85.38 for cohort 62

TEAS: 85 for cohort 63

TEAS: 87.5 for cohort 64

does anybody know how they calculate the science/math GPA, TEAS and interview score?

Hey everyone!

I'm planning on for the Nov. 2020 deadline as well. My GPA is alright with a non-competitive TEAS, so I'm PRAYING I score higher on the TEAS to boost my stats. Currently, this is where I stand:

  • BS in Kinesiology
  • GPA (math&science) - 3.5
  • TEAS - 79.8%
  • Experience - 4yrs as CNA & 5m as an ED Tech (my work cross-trained some CNA's to be able to work as ED Techs in the ED)

Planning on beginning to study for the TEAS here and there. Down to do study sessions closer to Oct. if anyone ever wants to btw 🙂

Hello ABN, you’ve got a competitive GPA. Here’s my stats at the moment:

Cumulative GPA: 3.6

Math and science GPA: 3.0 (got B’s in all science classes. Hoping to get an A in Biostat to increase to at least 3.3) 

TEAS: To be determined 

work experience: Lead pharmacy technician for 9 years  

I just got my TEAS manual study guide from ATI. I really need to do well on the TEAS, or I wouldn’t have a chance. I’m also planning to take it in September. That way I could retake it in October if I’m not satisfied with my scores.

Well if we're going to include our cumulative GPA, I'm not sure just how competitive my stats are anymore hahah. I'm pretty much the opposite with mine sitting at ~3.3? I'm not sure what my cumulative GPA is anymore since I retook A&P at a cc after I finished my undergrad (where I took all other pre-reqs).

But your stats look pretty good imo. You have extensive experience in the medical field and a great cumulative GPA. Although getting an A would be a plus so hoping you get it too; you got this!

As far as the TEAS, I'm planning to take it in September as well to give myself time to retake it should I need to. Seems like we're both betting on it to have our stats become "competitive." So good luck to us both, as all of us here know the struggles and stress of getting into any nursing school 😭

Hi there!

I have only completed A&P 1&2 and am currently enrolled in Micro. I take bio stats next month. So far I have As in A&P.

I am planning on taking the TEAS is October as well. I purchased the Mometrix study book. I might take the TEAS next month some time, it’ll just depend on how busy I feel with Biostats. 

You both are much better off as far as experience goes. I don’t have work directly in the medical field. I am an EMT, but that has just been a part of other jobs (I used to be a Park Ranger) and not an integral part of the job. I was supposed to start volunteering at a hospital in March, but that’s obviously not an option anymore. I am working currently in COVID case investigations, which isn’t actually medical work, but it is public health related. 

I am hoping to do really well on my TEAS and finish out the math and science pre-reqs strong to make up for the lack on medical work. Hopefully the other parts of the interview boost my score!

Hey hardworkingandhopeful! I take biostatistics next month as well. I hope I get to meet you in one of our discussions. I'm new to National U, so I'm still getting used to the blackboard. 

Im not too sure if they consider work experience in their decision-making. From what I have read so far, they only consider Math & science GPA, and TEAS score to be eligible for the interview. But work experience might help during the interview. 

I have read that work experience can factor in when it comes to the interview portion, but that is all anecdotal!
