    hey i did get in and i did accept it..did you already finish the nursing program there or are you just getting in as well..i pray that they have new teachers that care and are willing to help..

    Congrats! I too had 23 points and was accepted. But I was also accepted to the program at Augusta Tech and it ends about 5 months quicker, is more affordable, and is closer to home for me, so I am going that route. I hope we both have nice teachers who would rather help than criticize!

    that is great..i hope you do great..what all did u have for augusta tech in order for them to have accepted you..i was thinking about augusta tech but i know that i am missing 3 classes, so that is why i did not apply there..but could you tell me your GPA if you do not mind and also did you have all the classes done that is on there list to do before you can apply..also how was the test you have to take before you can apply to the program..i took the TEAS and got 2 Bs..but do you think that the Augusta Tech test, is harder and what does it all cover in it..I know the TEAS was just reading and math..I wish I would have tried to do what i have to do to go to Augusta Tech since it is closer to me and also it would be quicker..that is so much better..I will try out Aiken Tech and hope everything goes good and if not then I will do what I have to do to go to Augusta Tech..Let me know how you do in the nursing program and how are the teachers and I will let u know about Aiken tech..dont lose touch and my email is

    We had to have completed A&P I&II, Micro, English I&II, Humanities, College Algebra, Psych, Sociology, and Computers. But decisions were made based 70% on grades from A&P I&II, Micro, Psych, College Algebra, and English 1101 (I had As in all of these, but in algebra I made a C then retook for an A) and 30% on the PAX-RN. Even though we had to do all parts of the PAX (math, verbal, and science), I actually did better on the PAX (97th percentile overall) than the TEAS (88.9 and 97.5).

    Augusta Tech is a good deal cheaper, and that is one reason I chose it. Our entire semester's tuition is only about $1,000.00 and my Pell grant will cover it.

    how long did it take you to finish all the pre-requisites for the augusta tech program and how much do all these courses approx. cost? can they be taken online as well?

    thank you,
