Hi All: I am applying for Spring 2017 as well. I will have 60 points. In order for me to get more points I will need to take the new TEAS 6 to use the better of the two scores before the Fall application period (if I do not get in this time). I have a 2 year old and a 5 year old so I am really nervous but my husband and his family are really supportive so it helps me a lot. I hope we all get in and it will be an exciting journey for all of us. :)
that is awesome karlita12! I am pretty sure you will get a spot for Fall. I will be applying in September with anywhere between 60-70 points. I was curious what the lowest amount of points were. The office told me the scores were high so I have to boost my points. Thanks for your reply Karlita! :)
lis_18 I took the TEAS V in November 2015, so they will use that score and the new TEAS 6 score to see which is higher for September's application period. The only problem is that I will need to see what school is offering the TEAS 6 September 1st that way I can take it before the end of the application period.
msnnine, Saddleback said if I take the new version TEAS 6 at another school/ATI testing location that offers it September 1st, I can try to score higher on that test and they will use that score over the one I got in November on the TEAS 5.
Thank you lis_18. I hope I get accepted for Spring 2017. Does anyone want to share the amount of points they have? I am trying to earn as many as possible but it is difficult since I do not work in direct patient care.
Hi Everyone! I got my letter today. Unfortunately I was not accepted due to the amount of points I have. I sort of expected that and I will be working hard to increase my points for the next application period. Take care and I wish all of you the best and I hope each and every one of you get accepted. :)
Hello lis_18 :). My daughter will finish preschool this June. She will begin kindergarten in August. My mother-in-law watches my son right now. My husband and I plan on asking her to drop off/pick up my daughter from school if possible. They are all aware of my plans for nursing school and they are all very supportive so they will be my helping hand through school. Are you able to have a relative watch your kids while you are in school? It is tough to prepare yourself for such a drastic change with children. My husband and I decided to move in with my in laws to make it easier on our finances/child care.
Hi All-I got a 70% on my TEAS. I think I was way too stressed out about it. I thought I was going to fail and had high expectations and it got to me. . If I do not get accepted this time around, I will take the new version before the next application period to see if I score better on that one. If I get accepted it will be amazing. I am rooting for all of us.
Awwww, that's awesome! You have two kids too. Now I will not feel worried about being the only mommy . I am super excited as well. I just cant wait for the letters to be mailed out. It will be a dream come true to be accepted.
