  1. @PoweRNursing Hey. MGA's nursing applications went live today! 

    1. PoweRNursing

      Yes I applied today! Have you submitted your TEAS yet?

      Yes!!! I submitted my TEAS back in December!

      Awesome! I submitted mine last week. Can you believe we pay nearly 100$ for the TEAS and another $27 to request them? I wonder if I should check in with them to make sure that they got them. Are you going yo be living on campus or commuting?

    Wow! That makes me nervous, but that is not enough to stop me. My biggest worry is that I will not study the right things. When I read, I always feel that everything is important. My notes get so long and take so much time that by the time I am done taking them, I sometimes don't even have enough time to study them! Do your teachers give you study guides or anything to help guide your learning. By the way, MGA uses ATI for their NCLEX study. I have heard people complain about it, but it prepares them. I am also going to buy the Saunders NCLEX review day one so I can have a comprehensive review. Any other study tips?

    Thanks for the advice! Was there a lot of reading? I am used to reading 50+ pages of material a week, but nursing school is so much harder than the classes I have taken (from what I have heard).

    I am glad I was able to help. As I said earlier, let me know if you need any additional help! Make sure that you explain to Lisa Kelly that you were previously enrolled in a nursing program so that she can walk you through what you will need to submit. I have some questions for you though. How did you study for nursing school? I am the type of person that takes too many notes and this will not work in nursing school. Any tips would be helpful!

    Both of these scores are higher than the average acceptance scores, so try your best not to stress over getting in because I think you will have a great chance at getting in. The professors are the selection committee. Did you ever get to finish any nursing courses? If you did, then the professors would see this as a benefit and you would be a more competitive applicant. However, if you failed nursing courses then this would not be good. Talk to Kelly Lisa and she will helo you with the ENTIRE process. Just explain your situation and she will explain. I will be starting a thread the day the application opens so be on the look out for it P.S you find out acceptance around April. Let me know if you have any additional questions!

    Here are some contacts you might want to reach out to for additional info! lisa.kelly1@mga.edu ( 478-934-3520) Mrs. Kelly is SOOOOOOOOOO helpful and kind. She takes her time to explain the requirements of the program. When you reach out to her she may request to skype with you. She did this for me, and we went over all of the required classes I need to take and really just answered all of my questions (even ones that were not in her department). I highly recommend her. carla.higgs@mga.edu (phone: 478.275.6808) Higgs, WONDERFUL. She is helpful and will answer your questions about the costs of the program as well as additional requirements.

    You can see on pg 3 that I asked some people questions about the program. She had a lot of positive things to say about MGA. On the one with 3 replies might help some too. If you want even more info google search "Middle Georgia State University allnurses" and you will get like 5 different threads. This is how I found them

    Hey! I am so sorry about your mom's death! I know that must have been hard. Just know you have a family here on the allnurses blog! To answer your questions, MGA is not that difficult to get into. Their average TEAS score for the ASN program Fall 2018 was a 71. Their average GPA was a 3.0. For the BSN, the average was 75 TEAS and a 3.45 GPA. From what I have heard, the instructors are all VERY nice! This is reflected in their NCLEX pass rates, which have climbed close to Emory's pass rates. The advisor, Lisa Kelly, is the best. She is helpful and can answer any of your questions. I will include some great contacts if you have additional questions about the program. When I asked my adviser about how competitive the program was, she said it really wasn't. I believe that she said, "BSN program accepts 100 and has about 160 applicants". This is not competitive (she aid so herself). If you do not mind me asking, what are your GPA/TEAS? My GPA is 4.0 and TEAS is 83. My advisor told me there was not really a chance that I would not get accepted. The following links will help answer your questions (look at page three of the Second one). Do not hesitate to keep asking questions I may have missed!

    Hey! I have not applied yet, but am applying to the ASN Fall entry program in January. Do you have any particular questions about the program? I have talked to an advisor on multiple occasions and am fairly familiar about what the admissions is looking for. Additionally, I have asked question on older forums too. Check those out if you need!
  10. Hello everyone! Has anyone applied to ABAC for the generic nursing program track? If so what were your HESI and GPA scores? I have a 3.9 GPA right now, but I have not take HESI yet. I have heard that the program is super competitive since it has highest NCLEX pass rates in Georgia. Anyone who wants to share please comment

    So, how do you like your job now in 2019?

    I am sorry you did not get in! If you want to increase your chances of getting in I would do one or both of two things. Increase your GPA by retaking or taking extra classes and/or study and retake the TEAS. I am really sorry you did not get in, but keep on hoping because I really think that you should be abele to get in. There have been people with your grades and scores that have gotten in. Are you doing BSN or ASN? The ASN GPA is 3.0 average with TEAS 70. BUT the BSN grades lean towards 3.5 and 75 TEAS.

    Your very welcome! I believe that you will get in. I am very excited to apply for the Fall term. You should really read other posts for MGA to get more familiar with what to expect. They can be very helpful.

    Hello I am applying for Fall 2020, however, I have read other post and you should have a fair shot at getting in the program. Their average acceptance score is like a 3.15 and their TEAS is like a 70 (for ASN). BSN GPA is more like a 3.4-3.5 with a TEAS of 75. The way they do admissions is by first collecting your data (Carla Higgs does this) and then the professors review it if you meet the minimum requirements. Usually an admissions decision comes within 3 months of the application deadline (most of the time it is earlier). You may have already received your decisions, but I am not sure when you applied. Hope this helps.

    Middle Georgia State University Fall 2018 ASN

    I will be going to the Cochran campus for the Fall 2020. I would graduate high school early in Dec. and do the Spring 2020 in Dublin, but I will still be 17 years old and I think I have to be 18. I also don't want to rush this. People have been telling me to enjoy high school while I am here, but this is my second year of college, so I keep like wanting to finally graduate. However, my classes are paid for so that us a plus of being in high school. I would do BSN, but I have to work to afford school. ER sounds sooooo cool! I have heard many great things about PEDS! It is definitely a good fit if you like children. I feel like I would not be able to do PEDS. I would just hate to see children suffering at such a young age. I know that seeing suffering as an RN is a daily part of their jobs, but seeing someone so young would be tough. However, the children need RN's, and saving them to give them a chance of life would be the best satisfaction. That is another thing that I would like about nurisng. It gives you a personal and moral satisfaction like no other job. I feel so weird being a guy and feeling so much sympathy for people, but hey, it takes all kinds of people to run the world right. I am expecting to having to study all the time. That brings me to ask the question. Do you use any other resources to study? Like maybe a review book or certain website? Do you take notes from the book? Something that I have hated in my online college classes is having to take notes from 40 pages because I did not have face to face lectures. It was so hard! I think you will make a GREAT PEDS nurse! You seem like you have it together and can prioritize your priorities. Thanks again!
