    How old were you

    I was 39 when I took my first prerequisite course, and completed my BSN 6 months before my 44th birthday and I was not the oldest in my cohort.

    USF Nursing Applicants 2017

    I went to USF spring of 2015 and all I had to do was write a 2 page page single spaced essay on 3 scenario type questions. The only interview I did was for their graduate program and I do not believe they would ask the same type of question. My advise for any essay or interview, paint a picture with your words and try to use examples to help capture what your are attempting to convey so it sounds less scripted; remember these people do not know you and are interviewing many candidates, so shine above the others. You worked hard to get this far and you are almost there, you can do it.

    USF Nursing Applicants 2017

    I am a USF graduate and I can tell you that I have seen perspective students come in with perfect 4.0 GPA's and not get accepted due to not performing well on the interview, I have also witnessed students with 3.5 GPA's be accepted, me being one of them. You have a lot to offer, and let them know that in a clear concise voice, be confident and thoroughly explain your responses with examples, and try not to sound scripted. Good luck, you can do it.

    Another "Am I good enough" Post!

    FYI, USF does not require the TEAS or any test for their program. However, they do have an intense interview process. I have seen potential students with perfect 4.0 GPA's get denied, and I have witnessed students with GPA's as low as 3.5 get accepted. It all comes down to how well you interview.

    Rasmussen college,here I come

    I see the point you are making, however, I live in the NPR region and all the state and community colleges in the area offer nursing degrees in less than 2 years once you have the pre-reqs. In addition, there is no 3 year wait list for any school in the area, I know many who went right into PHSC, HCC or USF and obtained nursing degrees without having to wait other than the following semester.

    Last question sata

    I just took the Nclex last week and passed with 76 questions with my last being a SATA.

    Passed NCLEX

    I answered all the questions on the Nclex mastery app, and supplemented it with ATI.

    NCLEX Advice/Help Needed

    Similar to you, I finished and graduated my program on May 5, this past Monday I purchased the Nclex Rn Mastery app and it took me 2 days to answer approximately 1700+ questions along with using ATI. On Wednesday I went over only the 350+ questions I got wrong. On Thursday at 8am I took the Nclex and it stopped at 76 questions and as of this morning I found out I passed.

    Passed NCLEX

    Just received my results and I passed with 76 questions and it feels surreal to be all done.

    South University April 2016 cohort

    For patho I had Dr. Suescun, I cannot remember who I had for English but he was a tall relatively young guy. My overall GPA was 3.57 and TEAS of 75, however, if you get an A in patho it pretty much guarantees one a seat.

    South University April 2016 cohort

    Other than the cost South University is not a bad school; I was accepted into their nursing program this past April, however, I declined the seat in favor of USF. When I took Patho at South, I had to write a 30 page research paper on 5 joint / skeletal conditions and in Eng 3 a short 5 page paper and in class a 2 page timed persuasive writing assignment on the appeals of Ethos, Logos, and Pathos. They give students more than enough time to get the assignments done and offer a lot of help if needed.

    USF Accelerated BSN Fall 2015!

    The Unbound Medicine (Nursing Central) has to be purchased through the college book store otherwise if you go through the website you will be missing some of the additional programs that are given to only USF students. SafeMedicate & Project Nurse can be purchased at a later date; those 2 programs have assignments that need to be completed 3 weeks prior to the semester ending. Just remember that when you purchase the programs make sure you put in that it is for USF if required. As far as the school is concerned, the ATI is the program that is really important, the better you do on ATI, the higher the extra credit you will receive on cumulative Fundamentals final and that made a difference for many students.

    B in A & P II , Uni South Fl, Opinions?

    Welcome to Allnurses. If you maintain your 3.86 and write a good essay you should have no problem being excepted into USF. I know of other student including myself who had lower GPA's and wrote good essays and were accepted, and I know of students who had exceptional GPA's but lousy essays who were denied.
