    It all depends how fresh the study guide is for you. If you go through the study guide and find alot of it difficult you may need to spend a couple weeks. Expand deeper into subjects in the study guide. The science portion on the test is mainly physical science, periodic table, punnet squares, kinetic energy, balancing electrons, animal kingdom, understanding bonds etc. This test is a huge factor in you getting into the nursing program. Focus and put in 100 percent. Watch YouTube videos on things you need a refresher on.

    And I had a total gpa of 3.6 but had a 4.0 on my prerequisites with an 85 TEAS.

    The TEAS is much more difficult than the previous version. A good study tip that I used was youtube. Watch videos of people describing what was on the test then watch videos on the subjects you are rusty on a long with the teas studyguide. I did this and got an 85. The toughest section in my opinion was the science portion. I had a lot of physical science and earth science questions. Only had a few anatomy questions. Oh and take the online teas practice test too and study up on sections that you do poorly on.

    Just have to register for the CPR course and I'm done. Yay! I would like to know the cost of the program. The packet makes it seem that tuition is due the day of orientation but dues have to be paid by 8/12. Just an FYI.

    On our drug an alcohol screening do they check the urine or do they draw blood to test for alcohol. Reason being I just did the drug test and was worried they missed the test for alcohol. You would assume that testing urine for alcohol would be unreliable.

    PHSC always has to make things more complicated than they need to be like we are applying to Harvard or something lol. Oh well we will grind it out.

    So I don't have a student loan or a pell. I wonder how and when I need to pay for the background check and fingerprints? Do we have to upload all of our documents to this site? I wonder why they have to make this so complicated.

    It's madness. Lol. I got my titers done at quest on Monday. Got the results today. They do their own labs so they are done much faster. It's expensive though. I paid 400 bucks to get it done but at least I don't have to wait around to see if I have to have more shots. Now I just have to make time to drive down to the West Campus and pick up the lap slip for the drug test. I really wish that they would have mailed it to us.

    I spoke to the nursing department today. If you get your titers done and find that you need more immunizations you can document the first and document the appointment you have set for the next and it will be sufficient to reserve your seat. I would recommend you avoid the health department for titers. I went there and was told results can take up to 3 weeks to come back which could result in an incomplete packet entry. I went to quest diagnostics and was told results would be ready in 7 days. Of course you need a script from a physician to get the test.

    It's absolutely insane how much junk we have to do to reserve a seat. I got my packet Monday. Just got my titers done. Hopefully I don't need any more vaccines.

    Great Krispy! I'm hoping to be at the North Campus in Brooksville but I don't really care where I have to go. I'm just relieved to get into the program. I'm eagerly awaiting my packet so I can figure out what books I'm going to need and to see what I need to do prior to orientation.

    Congrats Angel!! @whoami I don't think it really matters as long as they look the same as the plain white ones offered at the phsc store, but I'm not really sure.

    PHSC Books 2014?

    Hello everyone! Congratulations to all that have been accepted to the PHSC RN program. I have been accepted to the transition program and was wondering if anyone has received the list of books required for the program. I know a few people selling books from the previous graduating class and want to jump on them as soon as possible but I don't want to buy them blindly without knowing the specifics. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Hope to meet some of you soon!

    Has anyone got the list of books for the RN transition program? I found someone that just graduated a few months back and wants to sell her books for 300 bucks but I have no idea which editions will be used for the upcoming term. I can't even view them yet on the phsc store site. Still waiting on my packet. Any help would be appreciated. I see on the program costs books are 1700 dollars 300 seems a little too good to be true.
