    @CountMeIn209 congrats! Guess we can count you in those of you that received your dove shipment, when did you order? I haven’t gotten any emails or anything from them

    You’re right! I only missed points from those categories you mentioned and not being proficient in a foreign language. I took the TEAS only once. I was determined to do well the first time cause it’s like $150! Atitesting.com has the official products. They’ve got multiple packages but I just went with the the practice exams- they are exactly the same format and style as the actual exam and being able to see it beforehand is invaluable. the mometrix guide was from amazon and also has practice tests inside, they’re useful- but can’t replace the ones from ATI. I studied for about 6 hours over 2 weeks. My practice scores were high 80’s/low 90’s and I didn’t feel that studying any longer would improve my score by much. When I got the the 95- I was pretty surprised. I expected to be high 80’s. Your score populates on the screen as soon as you’re done taking the exam.

    I had 4.0 across the science pre reqs and a 95 TEAS. I used the official online ATI practice tests (huge help, they’re just like the actual exam) and a study guide by Mometrix. I definitely lucked out on the English portion because I gave up reasoning and went with my gut on nearly the whole section. If you’re still working on your pre-reqs, give them everything you’ve got so you not only get full points for the GPA but are also that much more prepared for the TEAS!

    You heard right, micro and physio were both difficult at delta. Their rigor prepared me well for the TEAS though- i got a 98 on the science portion.

    While 76 might’ve been the cutoff for the top 40 people we won’t actually know the true cutoff until the final alternate is chosen. I wouldn’t be surprised if it ends up settling somewhere in the high 60’s or low 70’s. If you’re still doing your pre reqs, knowing that 76 was the lowest score among the top 40 is still valuable information though.

    4pm 5/31, so you won't have to wait too long to hear if you're in. Even at 22, anything can happen. Delta might not be the top of the list for everyone and if they had high scores they may have got in elsewhere too. How many points did you app with?

    Made it! Applied with 85 or 85.5, don't remember. Shots!!! If you didn't make it, don't give up! Work on what you can improve and stay persistent!

    Here’s the course description Course Description: An introductory course designed to enhance study skills for nursing or psychiatric technician students who have been admitted to either program. Topics will include an overview and orientation to both programs, discussions on professionalism, time management, and student expectations which are delineated in the Student Handbooks. An orientation to technological platforms utilized in the health care curriculum, program-specific assignments, critical thinking, and effective learning as well as test-taking strategies geared to optimize student performance will be explored.

    I don’t really know too many specifics, but I have a friend who graduated may 2018 who said while it was difficult she was still able to maintain her social life and work part time. While she was in the program you had to maintain a 75% or higher, and the semesters were split in half. So essentially a quarter system without officially being so. Side note, nosing around the summer catalog there’s a “Healthcare Study Skills” course specifically for psych tech and RN students. No course code available yet (so no one can add it). I want to be as prepared as possible but this class is 8 weeks long, from 8am-12pm Tuesday-Friday!! No idea what they could possibly be going over for 16 hours/week for 8 weeks. I think my time would be better spent working as much as I’d like to take it.

    @jbelle Oh I see what you mean. Congrats on graduation!

    I don’t think it’s this same exact class, just that pharmacology is part of the general curriculum (for any RN program) and from what people tell me it’s a very challenging part. For those of you waiting on transcript eval’s you could always see if your home CC offers the course. Should be just as good as taking it at Delta!

    Yeah that’s what I was figuring- no email about transcripts if all pre-reqs were done at delta. Anyone taking summer courses? I was browsing through the class listings and saw a pharmacology class online for health science majors (non-ADN). Multiple people have told me how difficult that portion of the ADN program is (though I don’t know what semester we see it), so I went ahead and enrolled in the course in the hopes it’ll make things easier when we get to it in the program. Also waitlisted for Yoga 1 - figure I’m going to need some new de-stressing mechanisms... haha.

    Congrats! Did you do your pre reqs at delta or elsewhere? has anyone who did their pre reqs only at delta received that email? thanks

    I turned my docs in in person the first or second day of the window and haven’t had any correspondence. All of my courses were taken at Delta though and it may be that that email is only sent if transcripts from another school are being evaluated.
