Thinking of Texas Woman’s University?

So I think I’ve decided to skip over getting an ADN and go straight for the BSN. I was considering time and money, but here in Houston it just seems everywhere prefers a BSN. And I was going to bridge over anyway so I figured to just go ahead with BSN straight away. I’m really interested in TWU and I’ve been researching them a lot! I’ve still got some core curriculum and pre-nursing courses I need. This Summer I’ll be taking A&P I&II and lifespan. I saw that you get extra points for having at least 16 credits from TWU? (Or something similar) I obviously can’t just move to Denton to take those so I was wondering if any of these core courses and pre-nursing classes were taken online by anybody?? I have a “prospective transfer phone advising appt” for May 28 to discuss this with an advisor. I’ve taken the TEAS once before and made around 67. Definitely needs work but I didn’t study much at all for it. I also currently have around a 3.4 total GPA. I am planning to do my very BEST on my classes in the future (hopefully all A’s) So any tips on TWU online, TEAS help, and what would make me a good applicant? Thanks everyone. 🙂

I'm also considering TWU as someone in the DFW area. I will share some of the common things I've seen said around here and other sites. Don't put all your eggs in one basket. Yes, BSN is the plan but sometimes the plan doesn't work out. Apply to multiply schools both ADN and BSN programs. Something to think about, if you apply only to TWU, don't get in, then that's another year of lost nursing income and schooling time. Hypothetically speaking let's say you do the ADN instead. One year in to the ADN, you theoretically get accepted to TWU on your second try, you're already in your last year of ADN, then you can bridge and you'd still get your BSN at the same time as you would have on a second attempt of applying BSN. Of course none of this matters if you're accepted BSN on the first try but point is, it doesn't work out that way for most applicants.

 

You've already said it yourself, TEAS needs work. Your GPA is either ballpark average or slightly low depending on schools but generally speaking you got a good shot still if your anatomy and psych grades come back good. Have you ever done something as rigorous as ap1, 2, and psych on one Summer. I'd tailor your expectations on that one. It's still a marathon not a race and schools aren't gonna care if you tanked your grades whether it's Summer or fall. If I were you I'd be careful and really think about what you're about to do to yourself by taking two AP classes in Summer AND Psych. Right now when it really matters for prereqs IS NOT the time to find out if you can handle it because that's a costly mistake if you gamble and lose.
