    Oh that's awesome! Do you mind sharing them? (:

    Or if not was it your academic advisor or the nursing advisor that shared them with you?

    I don't mind sharing them, it was the writing tutor that emailed them to me.

    * Compare and contrast nursing as a science and as an art.
    *Describe a time you had to use interpersonal communication to work through a difficult work situation.
    *What are your strengths and weaknesses?
    *The nursing program is very rigorous, what would you do to ensure your success?
    *Why do you want to be a nurse?
    *What skills or attributes set you apart from the rest, and how will these help you while in nursing school or in your nursing career.

    You are welcome. I am working on one essay question a week and reviewing it with a writing tutor to see what else I need to work on to improve my writing.

    I have 3.7 GPA, hoping to get at least an 85 on the TEAS.

    One week after the application deadline, they send out teas/essay dates. The teas/essay test dates are typically one month after the application deadline.

    Wow, thanks for that info. I thought the essay stuff was coming in April. I think that month was rattling around in my head from going to the September forum in South Bay. I'll check the Cohort 54 forum to see the date everyone showed up.

    Edit: yep, 54 deadline was Oct 13, they were testing about 5 weeks after. Time to get cracking!

    You're welcome. After you take the teas and essay, the turn around is about 5-8 weeks to find out if you are accepted denied. That will be around April for C55

    Just talked to Elizabeth, last week of February is the when the TEAS/essay will be scheduled (as in the week of the 26th). Hard date won't be available until Feb 4th it looks like.

    Is the essay given via computer or am I going to have to clean up my chicken scratch?

    Hey,
    Quick question for you guys and anyone else who can answer this. When you calculate your GPA do you count each lab as its own grade or A&P I and the accompanying lab as one single grade for example?

    It's computerized using the word app. You are given the prompt, have one hour, then get an hour break before teas.

    They are separate:
    Ap lecture (both levels)
    Ap lab (both levels)
