  1. Hey! How is your cohort going so far? I was supposed to be there but a few technical glitches set me back. ☹ I'm hoping to enter Spring 2021. Sorry for writing you so late!

      Hey! I am so sorry to hear that! I am getting ready to start in the fall and am getting really nervous. I am so terribly sorry that you have to wait, know that I am always here if you need me for anything!

    Hi guys! I got accepted to the Fall ASN 2020! So excited!

    Hey guys! The program accepts 50 for fall and 50 for Spring. In the past, the letters have gone out in the first to the second week of April. Just Google search "middle Georgia state university allnurses" and you will get about 7 different links. Go through them and see what GPA the people who got accepted had as well as when they received their letters. It will help you get a better idea of what you are looking for. I am nervous too and have been checking the mail religiously! I hope ya'll are in my cohort! I am so nervous. I hope we even have a fall semester with all of this cornovirus. I have been thinking about how that would affect everyone! However, with the nursing shortage that people are talking about, maybe there will be exceptions. IDK, but I am praying that things get better soon. I live right outside of Athens and have had confirmed cases in Oconee (where I live) and numerous in Athens. I am not worried about getting sick, rather the impact this has had on so many people! God bless you all and keep each other posted! Thank the Lord! Nervous and excited and hope we all get in!

    I inquired about this after this coronavirus outbreak and was told that letters will be sent towards the beginning of April. If something changes they will let us know. Good luck to everyone! I am growing nervous as the time approaches!

    Sorry for some of the quotation mistakes I have made on this forum! Do you guys know anyone else applying to this program?

    Wow! Those are both nice combinations. I live right here in Athens as well...small world! Too bad UGA doesn't have a nursing program. It is kind of ridiculous actually because they could easily round up very passionate professors and students and have one of the best programs in Georgia! The BSN and ASN deadlines are the same.

    For anyone applying to BSN, the average acceptance GPA for BSN Fall 2018 was a 3.47 and the average TEAS was a 75. Keep in mind that I was told that year by year the GPA is slightly increasing as the program becomes more well known, but this won't be a major change for this year. In addition, it is important to realize that the averages change every year and depend on how many people apply and their academics. Because MGA is not really a 4-year school people dream of going to for nursing, it is less competitive. However, the program has excellent NCLEX pass rates. The 2019 first time NCLEX pass rate was a 94.83. To put that into perspective, Emory's NCLEX pass rate for 2019 was only 96.26%. So while the program accepts students with worse grades, it knows how to teach students how to pass the NCLEX. And as a bonus instead of ending with 150K in debt, you can end up with only around 15-25K in debt if you get a loan for all of it! It does not matter how "good" the school is, all that matters is how the school prepares students to take the NCLEX.

    I don't mind! My GPA is 4.0 (so far) and my TEAS is an 82.7. They will also look at your subsection scores so don't worry if you did bad on the English portion (because I made like a 50 on that section!). They used to have the average GPA and TEAS on the degree planning sheet, however, they stopped adding it this year, but I still had a copy from previous years. For the ASN program (Fall 2018) the average TEAS was a 71% and the average GPA was a 3.05. Hopefully this helps you see where you stand. It changes from year to year, but my advisor told me herself that the program is not as competitive as other programs where you have to make like a 90 on the TEAS to even me considered.

    Hey! I applied to ASN! I hope we all get in as well. We should find out first week of April. Once the deadline is here, Carla Higgs (nursing school administrator) reviews the applications as a first round of selection. She considers TEAS, GPA, withdraw patterns, and any other factors that apply. She then sends the list of students that qualify to the admissions committee (the professors) who sift through those applications and come up with a narrower list of applicants. Finally, the list is then reviewed for accuracy by either the department head or the dean of nursing. Let me know if you have any other questions, I may or may not be able to answer them. Keep your fingers crossed 😀

    Hey I just applied! We talked earlier about MGA, but hopefully more people can share their stats with us!

      What type of GPA/TEAS scores are you applying with? Thinking of applying for fall 2021 ASN program after my first year of pre-reqs.  Did anyone do their first year prereqs at MGA Cochran?  I have visited campus once but it seems so remote.  Please let me know your experiences. tyia

      Hello nurse_2b! I have 4.0 GPA and 83 TEAS. The ASN program admits fall students on Cochran and Spring students on Dublin. The program average GPA is around 3.1 and average TEAS is around 72. The program admits around 50 for ASN per cohort (Spring and fall). They also have a BSN program with the fall at the Macon campus and Spring ar Warner Robins. The BSN accepts 100 per cohort and the GPA is close to 3.5 and TEAS closer to 75. As the program becomes more well known it becomes more competitive, so keep that in mind when looking at these averages. You can go to 

       for more info. You can visit all pages and find out a little more about the program, teachers, and GPA/TEAS. I hope this helps!

      @PoweRNursing I will be commuting. I applied to both the ASN & BSN programs. Praying to get into one or the other. @nurse_2b my GPA is a 3.3 & my TEAS score is a 77. I haven't taken any classes at MGA. I have a prior Bachelor's Degree from another university so I've taken all of my pre-reqs

    Nurses Furious As Dentist to Lead Nursing Research Institute

    Yeah, this is pretty dumb. How can someone make decisions on where grants and funds should be allocated if they don't even know the importance of nursing functions? I would be gravely disappointed if this person stayed in this position. Nursing research is essential to improving healthcare, and understanding basic nursing principles is necessary in discerning where research funding should go to. In this case, business would not help as much because the problem at hand deals with understanding nursing. Therefore, they should be hiring someone with BOTH a nursing and accounting/business background. There are plenty of nurses out their who have gone through dual MSN/administration programs.

    This is awesome, and so many people do not realize this. This is what sets apart a compassionate RN at heart from people just trying to get through. You are going to be an awesome nurse!

    Thanks for the info! It is very encouraging! I hope we are in the same cohort so we can study together. I promise I will not bring you down, I am one of those people that stays in track and on topic. I have always struggled to find good study groups because the people use me. I take a lot of notes, read all of the assignments and ask the teachers questions. I like helping people, but I can tell if someone is just being my friend to get good grades. You seem like you are the total opposite of this, so maybe we can arrange something one we find out we got in (I believe we will!) the program! Did you read the other forums? Let me know if you have anymore Q's! My name is Michael by btw!

    Should I Work In ICU?

    Thanks for your comments lopezjeff! I definitely think that really immersing myself in all of the different units and rotations in nursing school will help me understand what I am comfortable with in terms of environment. I think that one thing that is really hard about ICU is that sometimes rules have to be broken to save your patient (getting medication even if it is not yet prescribed).

    Should I Work In ICU?

    Thank you for your comment Hoosier_RN! Sounds like great advice. I am actually not even in nursing school yet, so maybe I will get a better idea once I get there in the Fall. Thanks again!
