    UA MEPN 2017

    Thanks. Any idea how many people apply all together?

    Have they said how many are going to Phoenix vs. Tucson this year? Or last year?

    I filled out a FAFSA yesterday. Does anyone know if it is too late?

    I don't have a lot of debt but I have some and yeah, some in collections. Not tens of thousands though.

    Congrats. I got mine too. I don't know how I will pay for tuition and living though. Someone on the waiting list might be happy. Any suggestions on how to make this work... anyone?

    UA MEPN 2017

    I was very pleased with the interview! Just a waiting game now! Does anyone know how long before decisions are made?
  7. I am going to interview for the MEPN program at the University of Arizona. I do not have much to show for savings and you obviously can't work during this program. Question: How do I pay for all of this? Student loans are one concern. After that? How do I pay for a place to sleep and pay my bills? I hope to find lots of good advice here! Thanks!

    Opinion: Do bad TEAS scores = Bad nursing students?

    That is precisely why I asked the question. I wanted to perhaps hear from someone that either got a lousy score and is now a great nurse after passing the NCLEX or someone who took the test, did well, but can say that it wasn't "that" factor that made them a successful student. This post is categorized in TEAS Help now, not success stories so we probably won't get that answer.

    OU Nursing: OKC vs Tulsa

    Hello everyone. I don't know much about Oklahoma apart from what I have seen while driving through. I would like to know your thoughts on which one you would choose if you were accepted into the 14 month BSN program and had the choice. I am not too concerned about nightlife and stuff to do. I will be too busy studying to enjoy anything that doesn't concern nursing school. I can tell you that I am a single apartment-dweller that prefers to ride a bike to school/work. Please let me know your opinions on the campuses and the areas if you are actually familiar with them. Thanks!
  10. Hello! For those of you that know both the Phoenix and Tucson campuses, I would like to know why you would lean towards one over the other. About me, I am a single apartment dweller who likes to bike to work and school, even in extreme heat. Which one would I prefer to bike to? Other reasons? Let's not worry too much about what both cities have to offer. I will be way too busy studying to enjoy much of the city. I am look forward to hearing about your experiences. Thanks! PS - Let's not forget about the actual schools! I would like to know about those too!
  11. So Arizona is the only school with an MEPN program that leads to an MS-RN title/license. Let's face it... MS-RN is a very silly way to name this. It has already caused all kinds of confusion for me when it comes to talking with others. If they just official called it an MSN-RN, life would be easier for everyone. I am sure that there is some legal/technical reason as to why they can't do that but that doesn't make it any better! Questions: ** What are they telling you to do when you are applying for another program that requires a BSN? I ask because one place already told me that I needed a BSN and an MS-RN won't work. That could be a part of confusion but it is still the decision. ** Are they still saying that you can't claim to have an MSN, meaning a Master's of Science in Nursing, even though you do? Is it really that bad (or illegal) to call this thing an MSN-RN on a resume? (You could just call it a typo if they ask right? ) ** Are grads getting jobs? Any AZ MEPN STUDENTS OR ALUMNI please give your two cents! Thanks!!

    Thank you. I am aware of that but my topic was in the wrong category. I wanted a discussion among grads about their experiences, not TEAS help.

    Well with good GPA(s), you will be competitive when it comes to admissions at any school. I wish you the best! I am 20 years out of high school and I wasn't good at math and science back then. Scoring in the 90's for me is not a reasonable hope. I would do my first backflip if I could take it tomorrow and score even an 82. I am looking forward to hearing from the grads!

    Opinion: Do bad TEAS scores = Bad nursing students?

    Hello everyone. First of all, I am not looking for TEAS help! I am currently focusing on schools/accelerated BSN programs that don't require a TEAS score. There are enough out there so this isn't the worst thing. However, there is a school right down the road from me that costs two-thirds less than others. This school requires the TEAS and IT IS WORTH 60 PERCENT YOUR ADMISSION SCORE!!! I have been looking at my guide book, taken a few excerpt quizzes and read tons of forum posts. I know that this test is going to give me plenty of trouble. I will take it but I know what I am facing. Again, my question here is not how to study for this test. I have read all of the tips and I have nine months to study before I have to apply anywhere (most accelerated BSN programs start in the summer). My actual question is: Do you agree with the idea that a good TEAS score represents the ability to earn a BSN? Did you score poorly on the TEAS and earn your BSN? Did you get a great score but disagree with the idea that the TEAS is a solid indicator of success? Do you agree that the TEAS means everything? I would love to read lots of replies from lots of different people! Thank you!

    About to start my online Stats course. Any advice?

    Hi there. Thanks for sharing. The bad news is that I can't take a traditional course. That isn't an option. The good news is that Stats is my final course. I have a 4.0 in prereqs and I can afford the C.

    Opinion: Do bad TEAS scores = Bad nursing students?

    Thanks for your reply! I know you are right but my problem is that I haven't been to high school for 20 years. On top of that, I wasn't the scientific nor mathematical type in high school. I was more interested in writing stories and public speaking. I am currently involved in a profession that little to do with the content of the TEAS. So while it isn't rocket-scientific, I still don't have an advantage over a kid out of high school with no adult life experience. Am I able to learn what I am taught? The answer is yes. I am just trying to find out what the TEAS really means to people who have taken it and are either nursing now or perhaps someone that was kicked out of nursing school.
