Hi, 

I started this thread for those that want to chat, brainstorm and encourage each other through the application cycle.

Thanks. How did you pinpoint where you fell short? I really thought I would get through. My scores aren't too bad but I know there is room for improvement. I think I am going to do ap2 in the meantime

Because I got a 74.5 on the reading instead of a 76. So my application didnt even make in pass the weeding process. Even the MEC counselors felt bad for me when I met with them, I even have a 4.0 GPA. But from what I gather the only people that are getting in for definite are ones that have scores in the 80s and above. So I dont even know why they have low threshold scores for the TEAS anyway. So Im starting with a tutor soon. I have test anxiety. I would get high scores on ATI practice test A and B but low on the actual test. 

 

I struggle on the reading and english sections.

I have all the requires classes. I am taking micro in the fall because my old micro class has aged out this summer at NVCC's 10 year mark. I just finished AP2.

Oh ok. My weak areas are reading and math too. I cant use my previous Teas because my English score was low. Even though my math and science were high. How was AP2? Did you find it harder then AP1?

Hi, 

I started this thread for those that want to chat, brainstorm and encourage each other through the application cycle. 

So, I only decided to pursue Bursing this past week. I am behind on my planning unfortunately.

I already have a bachelor in public health. I am hoping that most or all of the prereqs will count from my bachelor classses. I confirmed with mec counselors that I dont need to take the SDV course.

the issues is, I cannot go through the evaluation request form until I have a degree program selected. Since I need to apply for my degree program, how else can I get my transcript evaluated, anyone has gone through this?

I signed up for 1 class for the June 8 weeks session so that I am enrolled in 1 credit and hoping to take the microbio course bio250 in fall. But i also cannot sign up for bio250 without having the English prerequisite in the system :(

 

I am going to start studying for the TEAS tomorrow and hopefully can take it by end of July, anyone has any recommended sites for study materials and/or practice questions?

Hello all,

Would any of y'all be interested in my ATI TEAS study manual and flash cards? Those are the only 2 things I studied and I got a 90.7 on the teas test and am starting in the nursing program this fall. I was going to just toss the flash cards and try to sell the book online but would anyone on here want it free before I do that? My hand writing is not super pretty (I thought I would be the only one reading them haha) and the book has not been written in so it is still pretty new. Let me know! I live maybe 12 minutes from the Annandale campus you can come by and grab them and if you have any questions about the application process I can try to help/ answer whatever I can. Email me if you have interest in the book and flash cards nicole.squiggs@gmail.com. Good luck with Spring applications!! Keep pushing hard you guys got this!

I never heard of waiting for an evaluation request. Nevertheless you should be fine. I would submit your eval request at your 7 week mark into your class. Also go to campus and meet with an advisor. They can look at your unofficial transcript and override the system to register you for BIO 250( I think you meal 150, microbiology). That's what I did last year for one of my classes. But still submit an official transcript anyway. I think you can still submit the transcript once admitted in the school because submitting a transcript and requesting an eval are two different processes. When they get your transcript they will just keep it on file under your name.
