    Amen, staying positive is crucial. Does he want to be a nurse?

    Yeah, of course! Here is detailed info. on the package/scholarship for the navy: https://www.med.navy.mil/Pages/InfoViewPage.aspx?ItemID=24 This should answer all your questions. But please, don't go into the military just to have some slack on getting into nursing school. The. military. sucks. You have to genuinely enjoy being uncomfortable 24/7.

    I see why not many people are applying to USF: their average GPA last year was a 3.9, and they don't consider TEAS scores. They got strictly by grades.

    UCF 2021 Traditional BSN

    I apologize this is a long answer to your simple question, but I wanted to put some info about applying to other schools that may be helpful to others! 🙂 I applied to UWF and UNF for the fall. I didn't apply to FGCU because my first TEAS was barely an 80% too (FGCU only takes the first attempt), and I didn't apply to FSU because my family are gators LOL. HOWEVER, my first HESI score with UF was 89.6 which was awesome and looks more promising (UF only accepts the first HESI attempt). UF seemed to care about you more as a person because UF asked for resumes, awards, experience, etc. UWF literally had the exact same application too through NUrsingCAS except they wanted a Hep. B exam (which was kinda odd). So, if you want to apply to UWF, make an appointment ASAP with your local clinic/doctor to get a Hep. B titer test (they will have to draw blood). My test took a very long time. Either way, I was most impressed by UF and UWF's applications. I looked into FIU too, but they required some weird ethics prereq. course that was completely out of the blue. So I couldn't apply there. Did anyone else have that issue? UNF (my current school) has their own TEAS scoring system that is very different from all the other schools in FL. Respond to this comment if you want me to explain how they do it, as it may change how you study! I am not sure if you and/or anyone else is considering the military, but if you are like me, PLEASE read the info. below: If you have any military scholarship and/or are getting one, UNF will offer you early admission because of it! All you need is a 3.5 Undergrad GPA and a 350 TEAS. I am currently going through the process of putting together a NCP (nurse candidate program) package and I will need to take the TEAS one more time to get to that 350 score.

    You are very welcome. You are very smart for not putting all your eggs in one basket! Over the Summer is when a lot more application decisions will come out. What other places did you apply to? I applied to UWF, UNF (fall), UF, and am applying to Valencia ASN/BSN. I also applied to (private) JU but I don't think that is on anyone else's radar on this forum.

    #same We all need to be strong and remember that we are not the problem, nursing school is. They don't care about your resume nor what the world needs: which is more nurses! They just want more money which is an absolute shame and a disgrace. You are so much better. Don't let a rejection that was based on a whole separate agenda that ironically defeats the purpose of nursing decide your fate. Thanks for coming to my TED talk 🙂

    I am a student at UNF, and I can vouch they are probably the most competitive in the state. They were very quick to reject me for the Summer and I am their own student. In this last application cycle for the Summer there were 600 applicants (this means 600 applications with no incomplete items, so in reality, it was more than 600). Only 35 were taken. That's between a 5 to 7 percent acceptance rate.

    Did you hear back from Daytona too?

    UCF just sent me an email with my decision. I was rejected. I think I may get in at UF, as I scored a 90.5 on the HESI with my first try and I will have a 3.8 GPA including my Spring grades. Best of luck to y'all!

    Thread for University of Florida traditional BSN applicants.🐊 Posted early so we can get our questions asked before the March 1st application deadline. With corona this year, applications are even more interesting and unpredictable! My stats are on the lower side, but are still up there. I have a 89.6 HESI (w/ a 920 in critical thinking) and a 3.75 GPA. What's helping those lower stats are lots of volunteer hours in my community, an amazing part-time CNA position at a hospital in downtown Jacksonville, club leadership positions, involvement with local sport clubs, and more. I am currently at UNF. Looking forward to everyone's collaboration 🙂

    Navy NCP Scholarship

    Starting a thread here for anyone who A. is considering/applying to or B. has gone through the Nurse Candidate Program (NCP) with the Navy. Please share everything and anything. A little about me: I have applied to three traditional BSN programs in FL and will be hearing back from all of them in 1-3 months. If these schools reject me, I will get my RN with an ASN and retry the scholarship again by applying to RN-BSN programs.

    You have perfect GPA all across the board, you will definitely get in.

    Apply for two different semesters? I thought the traditional program only started in the fall. Could you clarify what you mean by that?

    Edit: I am a transfer from UNF (yes I totally did spell a word wrong, my B).

    Thread for UCF ‘21 Traditional BSN ❤️ I sent my application in literally at 12:00 am on February 1st... is this application wholistic or first come first serve? Also... does UCF look at your transcript with grades from this semester? Aside from that, lmk what your GPA’s and TEAS scores look like. I am way too insecure to post mine and am not sure where I am at. First choice is Daytona, then Orlando, then Cocoa.
