I just got denied to my second nursing school because of this TEAS test. I have 2 Bachelor of Science degrees, that were not science related. I just finished taking my A&P 1 and 2 and Micro at a community college. I now have everything needed to get into nursing school and my GPA is a 3.3. I was not denied based on my GPA, but on my TEAS score which is a 56%. I bought the McGraw study book and did not find it helpful at all. I feel like my whole life is up in the air because I have no clue what I am going to do if I don't get in. I just feel like I wasted a year and a half of taking sciences for nothing. I dont' know which avenue to take, as all colleges require this. I am willing to study and retake the TEAS, but I am so nervous and my whole nursing acceptance being based ont his, not even my classes is just nuts to me. Any recommendations? thanks for any help!

Every school has its own criteria for selection. If I were you, I would retake the teas. No offense, but you have 2 BS degrees the teas should be a breeze for you! Study the ATI book because the format and information is identical to the info on the exam in the reading and english sections. Math, just know very basic algebraic applications and PEMDAS and parameters. Science however is a bit tricky but follow the book and perhaps google chemical equations and balancing to get more detail. Do your schools only accept the first teas score for so many years?
