  1. Just signed up for the BLS class! I'm so excited that our orientation is only a week away. I wonder if we're assigned our clinical sites at the orientation as well since we'll be getting our schedules.
  2. Has anyone gotten their physical done and the BLS card/insurance/CPR certification yet?! I'm nervous about getting all of this done in time

    Hi Baker93! I just submitted my application. Don't feel bad though, that's just the average accepted score, meaning there had to be some scores lower than 85 and some higher :) be positive! You have a better chance than me! I have a 3.7 GPA and got an 82.7 on the TEAS. I did horribly on the math section as well, but I hate math. I actually ran out of time on that section!

    Congratulations FutureRN! I created a thread for cohort 1 but it doesn't seem like there's too many of us on this website, which surprises me! https://allnurses.com/general-nursing-discussion/tidewater-community-college-1048093.html#post9006978 Ssathia1, if I were you, I would call tomorrow if you don't get one by then! I read a few people have done that in a past thread.
  7. Hi everyone! My name is Samantha. I created a thread for Cohort 1 students for the August 2016 start at Tidewater Community College's nursing program. Hope we can all get through this long summer and get ready to start the semester together :) I am so excited!

    I live in Suffolk as well. Northern part. It's strange that the letters are spaced far apart because they weren't like this last year. I hope you guys get your letters tomorrow!! & thank you so much everyone for the congratulations :)

    Mindy, I'm not 100% sure but from what I've seen in the past threads, some people get upset because someone can wait until last minute to drop out of the program and then you'd replace them, which is why they want you to have everything done. I've heard someone was notified they got in a few days before the classes started.

    My last name starts with a C and I didn't get a letter yet so maybe it's something different! So nervous! Good luck to everyone :)

    I'm applying to Sentara this semester as well. I absolutely love their program and that you get a bachelor's instead of an associates. i have looked at other programs but they usually require a first level biology (like Bon Secours program). I looked at Paul D Camp but I don't remember why I said I didn't want to apply. It was something about the classes as well. Riverside just remodeled their program but I believe it's only a night/weekend program.

    I haven't re-taken the TEAS yet! I'm going to re-take it after I finish my classes this semester. That is funny how we both got 76's! I'm definitely hoping to go up about 15 points which is incredibly do-able! Sentara is within our reach:) good luck studying for the second round!

    I was missing ENG 112 and BIO 150 but had the other ones done. But don't be nervous! You have an extremely strong HESI score. I just wish I would've taken the time to study for mine!

    Hi! I also applied for the fall start. This is my second time applying, by the way I just finished 3 more classes last semester and got A's in them so hopefully that improves my chances a bit. My pre-reqs are all done now. I didn't re-take the HESI though, which I only got an 82 on. I wanted to let you know that the letters will all be sent out all together. It also took the WHOLE time for them to deliver the letters. I believe it even took a few days over the two months mark. We kept calling them around the dead line and they'd beat around the bush saying "letters will be sent out soon." over and over so there's not much hope in squeezing that info out of them;) good luck to everyone!!

    I tested at the Norfolk location because that was closest for me. It was kind of hard to find because my GPS didn't bring me directly there. I don't believe there is a time period to take the test a second time. One thing I'll tell you is that there's no calculator to use for the math section, which I was surprised by because another nursing entrance exam, HESI, allows you to use a simple calculator. I'm rusty on math, so I need to look back at long division and simple things. Certainly not hard math, but I've always hated it. I hear a lot about people running out of time on math. Math was my lowest scoring section! Reading and Grammar were both easy. The passages aren't long so you should have enough time. Science seemed fairly "easy". Scientific Reasoning section hurt me but I had high scores on the other sections in science. But great job on doing so well on your 6 classes! If I get A's this semester, I'll have 4 A's and 2 B's. Sentara counselor just told me to re-take the 'C' classes....I hope he was right! Last year, the average TEAS score was 85.5+ on admitted students. Good luck on taking yours! You got this!! Did you finish all of the courses that are not pre-reqs as well?
