I apologize this is a long answer to your simple question, but I wanted to put some info about applying to other schools that may be helpful to others! ?

I applied to UWF and UNF for the fall. I didn't apply to FGCU because my first TEAS was barely an 80% too (FGCU only takes the first attempt), and I didn't apply to FSU because my family are gators LOL. HOWEVER, my first HESI score with UF was 89.6 which was awesome and looks more promising (UF only accepts the first HESI attempt). UF seemed to care about you more as a person because UF asked for resumes, awards, experience, etc. UWF literally had the exact same application too through NUrsingCAS except they wanted a Hep. B exam (which was kinda odd). So, if you want to apply to UWF, make an appointment ASAP with your local clinic/doctor to get a Hep. B titer test (they will have to draw blood). My test took a very long time. Either way, I was most impressed by UF and UWF's applications. 

I looked into FIU too, but they required some weird ethics prereq. course that was completely out of the blue. So I couldn't apply there. Did anyone else have that issue?

UNF (my current school) has their own TEAS scoring system that is very different from all the other schools in FL. Respond to this comment if you want me to explain how they do it, as it may change how you study!

I am not sure if you and/or anyone else is considering the military, but if you are like me, PLEASE read the info. below:

If you have any military scholarship and/or are getting one, UNF will offer you early admission because of it! All you need is a 3.5 Undergrad GPA and a 350 TEAS. I am currently going through the process of putting together a NCP (nurse candidate program) package and I will need to take the TEAS one more time to get to that 350 score. 

Can you elaborate more on the nurse candidate package and the military scholarship? What does is mean if you get one/how do you get one? And does that mean you have any requirements after nursing school?

I’m applying to UNF, VC/UCF, SCC/UCF, and USF for fall ABSN at st petersburg. I haven’t seen many people saying they are applying to USF, I wonder why. I’m so anxious. I just wanna get in somewhere. After all these rejections it gets more and more stressful.

I was going to apply to JU but it is just expensive. I’m applying to VC/UCF and SCC/UCD concurrent as well as UNF for fall too. I wonder why I don’t see many people applying to USF. 

I see why not many people are applying to USF: their average GPA last year was a 3.9, and they don't consider TEAS scores. They got strictly by grades.

I applied to USF's Summer ABSN (Tampa) and just found out that I got in!! I too was anxious and worried, but keep your head up and try to stay positive!  ?

Yeah, of course! Here is detailed info. on the package/scholarship for the navy: https://www.med.navy.mil/Pages/InfoViewPage.aspx?ItemID=24 

This should answer all your questions. But please, don't go into the military just to have some slack on getting into nursing school. The. military. sucks. You have to genuinely enjoy being uncomfortable 24/7

Amen, staying positive is crucial.

Is anyone still waiting on any decisions? I haven’t gotten decisions from Cocoa or Daytona yet. Kind of nerve wracking considering everyone else has gotten decisions already. My applications are still just eligible. ?

That’s odd, I would email. Maybe it’s because they added the other campuses for you super recently?

Yeah that’s what I was thinking. The other campuses just got added to my application around 4 I believe. Just no decisions yet at all. I’m just really stressed about it because I hope they didn’t forget about me.

I always thought UCF was so odd in the way they did things. They should have told you to put the other campuses on your application beforehand.. I feel like they make things so complicated. It’s weird how you didn’t get your decision yet... but I’m sure that doesn’t mean they forgot about you. They just love to make things hard
