    Barely passed Teas for Texas Woman's Univ -- is there still hope?

    Hi Anthonyx! I've been at TWU in Houston for the last 2 days doing orientation. I ran across several folks there that were transfers from the Denton campus. I asked them why they chose to move to Houston to attend the nursing program when the same program was offered at home, in Denton. From their feedback--it seems that TWU students automatically get a "bump up" on their scores (TEASV?) if they're already a TWU student. That makes more students qualify for the nursing program. The more students that qualify increase the number of applicants. Therefore, in reality, it makes it much tougher to actually get accepted into the program because there are just sooooooooo many applicants for so few postions. Does that make sense? Also, in Houston, there are so many nursing schools, some of them within blocks from each other. The competition is literally right around the corner. Sooooo, basically, what the kids are saying--their "bump up" scores wouldn't cut it in Denton. In Houston, however, it was a different matter. Today, there were at least 5 or 6 Denton students starting the nursing program in my class. I hope this information helps you. Wishing you the best of luck!

    Nursing school at age 50

    I'm starting nursing school at the end of this month. I'll be 50 myself in November. For the most part, the young kids that have been my classmates have been very accepting. You will be their favorite study partner, but definitely not their favorite hangout partner (lol). Go get 'em girl! I plan to! :)

    Hi 1luvofnursing! I haven't seen the fireworks yet. So, is it safe to assume you haven't heard anything yet? I think all my stuff had to be in by February 1st. They let me know March 29th via email through my student TWU email that I had been accepted. Have you checked your TWU email lately??

    Good morning, AnthonyX. How are you doing today? Have you thought about contacting the application department. The lady I talked to was over-the-top helpful and supportive! Hang in there. As to your TEAS, I wouldn't really give it another thought. The bottom line is that you qualified, period. That's the way I look at it. I'm not proud. I would have been happy to qualify by a fraction of a point, just as long as I qualified. Your GPA is also very good! If you pray, why not pray for Divine Intervention? Leave no stone unturned!

    Yes, I was a transfer to TWU from the local community college.

    Honestly, Anthonyx, I haven't ask anyone about their scores. The only scores I've seen are those posted on this website and ALL TeasV scores have been wa'ay better than mine. Somehow, though, I was accepted. I basically posted my real scores to encourage others to 'hang in there.' You don't have to have all high scores to get accepted. I'm obviously living proof of that. After applying, I emailed the application department and (I guess) was assigned an academic advisor. She was EXCELLENT in letting me know stuff like how many applicants I was competing against, how my chances were based on the current applicant pool and what she'd seen, etc., etc., etc. Maybe you can do this. I would think you'd be able to get even better information because you're actually attenting TWU already. Good luck, Anthonyx! :)

    Hi Anthonyx! Your TEAS score is the same than mine. Your GPA is also good. What does "2/4 preferences" mean? FYI - TWU was the only nursing school I applied to.
  8. I'm having to sell my beautiful red Avalanche to pay for the first semester or two of tuition. Right now, I need the money more than I need my beautiful truck. When I get done with school, though, I'm gonna be on the hunt for a beautiful red convertible that will seat all four of my dogs and my husband! :)

    Hi. I think you'll be fine. I was accepted by TWU and will start classes in the Fall 2012. The minimum TEAS score accepted by TWU is 64; my score was 68. Your GPA is actually quite a bit higher than mine; mine was 3.639. If I remember right, the GPA was higher up on the list that TWU looks at when considering you; GPA came first. Say a prayer that you don't bite all your fingernails off while waiting for acceptance. Good luck! I hope to see you at TWU soon!

    New TEAS V Science Section

    I took the TEAS V at the end of January 2012 and just received my Letter of Acceptance last week. For my review, I just used the study guide put out by ATI. For the science section, the study guide focused more on A&P, but the actual test focused more on chemistry--I was not good at chemistry at all. I wonder if others share my view? In addition to going over the review material you've chosen, during the actual test, be sure to read each question and answer--don't be too rushed. Just do your best and keep the faith! You'll be fine. Good luck!

    Yup, that's what I've heard Eric. My older sister and younger brother have both been through it. They said it's all you can do to just study. Forget about life as we known it, at least until we get done with nursing school! I do read and hear everywhere, though, that you don't have to be super smart to make it successfully through the program. Instead you must be a "hard worker." I say, "Good," that means I have a chance! (lol) Best of luck to you, Eric. :)

    Enter your TEAS V Scores here!!

    Just yesterday, I was accepted into TWU's nursing program in Houston. (Thank the Lord!) To my knowledge there was roughly 900 applicants for a total of 235 spots. Three programs shared the 235 applicants. My TEAS V score was 68 (64 was the minimum to qualify) and my GPA was 3.639. Program Type: BSN Adjusted Individual Total Score: 68.0 ATI Academic Preparedness Level: Proficient Mean - National: 64.3% Mean - Program: 70.6% Percentile Rank - National - 60 Percentile Rank - Program - 40 Reading Adjusted Individual Score 59.5% Mathematics A.I.S. 80.0% Science A.I.S. 56.3% English and Language Usage A.I.S. 90.0% In disclosing this information, I am hoping to encourage those who work hard, not to give up, even when you feel like you don't have a prayer. Look at me...I just barely qualified on my TEAS V, but still, I qualified and was somehow selected out of the 900 applicants to attend the program. **IMPORTANT** Be sure you apply for your Associate in Arts Degree once your basics are done, and have it BEFORE you are scheduled to start nursing school. If you don't prove to be "core complete" (by literally having your Associate in Arts Degree), the nursing school can require you to take additional classes. Believe me, it almost happened to me. Also, be sure that ALLapplications fees and TEAS V scores are submitted on time or you will be disqualified. Keep the faith...and good luck!
