    Kennesaw State University BSN Fall 2017

    It seems as though last year notices started appearing around March 24 in previous threads. I'm hoping it won't be much later than that. Best of luck to you!

    Please don't be discouraged by all of the numbers on the board, though, because none of us really know what their criteria is for admission. I suspect that there is more to it than just scores. They probably do look at how far along we are in our undergraduate work. Hopefully, now that won't be an issue for you. Honestly, admission is kind of like playing the lottery. We really do not know what we are up against. I did wondered about the prerequisites. I have been sending a transcript at the end of every semester that I took at GSU. I am finishing up my last two classes there this semester.

    World Literature really isn't as bad as I thought it would be. I am not much for the "deep-thinker" classes and I am glad that this is my last semester of undergraduate coursework. I like knowing about history, but I do not like dissecting it. The jumping from one subject to another is what makes college work so hard!

    For me, I gauge the school based on their NCLEX pass rate. In my mind, the higher the pass rate, the better the school. Of course, it could be reasoned also the more competitive the school, the higher the pass rate as well. KSU has a consistently high NCLEX pass rate. North Georgia I like because it is much smaller. I actually began my school career in Knoxville at a real small school. The class size at KSU was a bit of an adjustment; however, since they took all of my credits and with their average four year pass rate of 94.41%, I decided to stay on their schedule. Here is the website if you are interested in taking a look at Georgia nursing college stats. http://sos.ga.gov/PLB/acrobat/Forms/38%20Reference%20-%20Nursing%20Education%20Program%20Results%20(NCLEX).pdf Honestly, your competitive is really high so I do not think that getting into any nursing school is going to be an issue for you at all. You should be proud of your scores!

    No. I am a nontraditional student with three children. Kennesaw is the closest to my home so I have been following their track. My second choice would be North Georgia though. I hear they have a really good program as well. Is Kennesaw your first choice, or are you applying elsewhere? I am finishing up my last two prerequisite classes this semester (world lit and art) and then I am taking the summer off! I have been pecking away at classes since 2012 and I need a breather! I suspect that we should know by April. The email I got was exciting though. When I had orientation at KSU the adviser told our group that the average TEAS score was between 85 -87% and that they accept 80 students per semester.

    Hi! I have also applied for the Fall 2017 BSN program at Kennesaw. Overall GPA: 4.00 TEAS Score 93.3 I am very excited to have finally reached the point where I am eligible to apply. Are you a transfer student? I am a KSU student; however, I have picked up several classes at GSU. I know that nursing admissions is beginning to pull applications together. I was contacted on the day I took the TEAS regarding the whereabouts of my TEAS results. (I did not take the TEAS until January 12.) Best of luck to you!
