Hey everyone, I'm starting this thread for Polk State College Spring 2020 hopefuls. Right now, my total score is 111.15. I'm retaking my TEAS Wednesday (right now my TEAS score is 76) and I'm retaking Algebra summer II for a higher grade. We shall see how it goes...

Hello,

Im reapplying for the Spring too. My total score is 107.5 with a TEAS score of 74. I work for BayCare and they have a program that saves 8 spots for team members that work at  the hospital (Winter Haven). They take the top 8, considering both GPA and TEAS, along with other qualifications.

I feel hopeful this time around!! 😉

I retook my TEAS and it only went up to a 76.7, lol. Hopefully my algebra grade stays an A. If so, I think I'll have around a 114 final points. 

Any idea what the cut off is usually around for the spring term??

Hello! 

I’m also applying for Spring 2020. I read the post for the Fall 2019 hopefuls and was surprised to see some people with pretty high scores were accepted as alternates. Anyway, I scored an 82.7 on the TEAS and thought about retaking it but feel like maybe I should be ok with this score. I have a 3.5 prerequisite GPA and a 3.5 overall... with my previous degree I believe my points are at about 119. Good luck everyone!

Hello :)

I will be applying for the program next month too. Currently studying to take my teas in a few weeks. I completed my Bachelor’s in health science at UCF in 2017, started applying to PA school but then reconsidered my options and decided to go with nursing and eventually NP instead! 

 

Does anyone one know if they count AP scores in the gpa calculation for the prerequisites? Also, when calculating my prereq gpa will they use ALL the courses I’ve taken already (the must-have’s plus A&PII, comp II, developmental psych, etc) or just the basic minimal ones needed for admission?

 

thanks!

Hello. I'm not sure about the GPA for AP classes. The GPA is calculated 5x your overall GPA plus 5x prerequisites (all of them, not jist the required before admission ones) GPA. Add that score to your TEAS score and 2 points for each degree (AA, BA, MA, etc). Best of luck!! Here's hoping for round 2!!

Thank you! Also do you know how they calculate gpa? Do they use plus or minus? And how do they treat any repeat courses?

Sorry, I don't know any of that information. You can email the nursing department. They've been good about answering my questions.
