Hello everyone! I wanted to start a thread for National University students who are applying for the SD cohort 52 that begins in October 2017. I'm very excited about the future and wanted to share this experience with others that have applied as well. Please feel free to post questions, concerns, and accomplishments.

Has anyone received an e-mail for the TEAS 6 test date?

Admin, can this be moved to student forum ?

Hello! I just got the email today and I will be taking it on May 18!

Hi everyone! I also applied for cohort 52! I have not received an email yet....should I be worried?

Yes, I took the TEAS 6 and did ok (78%). I need to do better! I have a month to study, so many prayers are being said! Have you taken it?

Hi everyone! I am applying to corhort 52 as well. My testing date is May 16th. I took the TEAS 6 a month ago and got a 78%, but will be retaking it to get a higher score. What is everyone's GPAs? If you don't mind me asking. Hoping I get a higher Teas score and do well on the essay.

My GPA is 3.94. What is your GPA?

does anyone know how to calculate all your points?

I'm not sure how to calculate the points, but I know that GPA is worth 40%, TEAS is worth 40%, and the essay is worth 20%.

when you calculate your GPA do you include your grades from lab? or is it just lecture?

The forum included lab.

Hi everyone! I was wondering how everyone is preparing for the essay portion? I'm nervous about it, seeing as I'm not a strong writer at all. Any suggestions that you all are doing would be greatly appreciated. Also how do I calculate my GPA on the four classes that are weighed?

does anyone have an idea of what the essay prompts will be?

I was told the essay is a typical 5 paragraph essay and to make sure you answer the prompt. From what I have been hearing, the prompt is generally about why you want to do nursing or why you would be a good nurse. So more or less make the essay personal. I did a google search and found a website that calculates it and input my grades and units they were worth. Don't forget the labs are included.

okay thanks! I also saw from a previous forum that they had the prompt "Some say nursing is an art and a science. Discuss what this means to you."
