I am still waiting to hear back from National.
My GPA was roughly a 3.5 and my TEAS was an 86. My essay score is unknown.
National looks at your math & science GPA, TEAS score, and essay score. The number of attempts is no longer factored in. National will issue a proctored essay exam upon your nursing application completion. The number of attempts on the TEAS is not a factor, so your best score will count. But keep in mind that other programs may factor that in.
The number of people getting accepted depends on which campus your submit your application to. San Diego is the largest so they accept 4 cohorts a year with 50 seats in each cohort. LA has 2 cohorts a year with 20 seats in each cohort. Fresno has 2 cohorts a year with 20 seats in each. There is 1 LVN cohort a year in San Diego with 20 seats.
Currently, National only lets student apply to one campus at a time.
I hope this helps!
