I applied to UTHSC and University of Memphis for Fall 2017.

Awesome! What is your GPA and TEAS score if you don't mind me asking? I'm taking the TEAS for the first time next week because I was only going to apply to Memphis but then decided to apply at UT. I'm nervous!

My GPA is currently 3.12, but I hope it will go up a bit once I finish my pre-reqs. I don't have to take the TEAS since I have a bachelors degree in another field (such a relief to find that out!)

Have you already finished your pre-reqs?

I haven't finished all my pre-reqs yet.. I still have A&P 2 and Micro in the Spring. I'm really nervous that I won't get accepted because of that. I have to take the TEAS next week, also nervous about that..

I applied to both as well! GPA overall is 3.35 and I took the TEAS although I already have a Bachelor's and got an 87 I think. Good luck to all!

Have you been contacted for an interview at UT? Supposedly the last date for those is Friday the 17th.

I had my interview on February 8th and was contacted on the 1st. What about you??

I had my interview on Feb 7th. They said they would send out around the end of February right? Has anyone heard from them yet?

I applied to UT and I had my interview on the 6th. Hopefully we hear from them this week!

Hi everyone! I checked to see if there was a Facebook group and I didn't see one for us. I'll make one and call it UTHSC Nursing - Class of Fall 2018. I'll let you guys know when it's ready and see if I can share the link here.

I can help give advice on housing if you have any questions. I have lived all over Memphis since I moved here so I'm pretty familiar with the livability and price range of different areas. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone!!

Hey guys! I know this thread is old, but could anyone tell me about the interview process there? Did 1 person or multiple people interview you? What type of questions did they ask? Also, how are you liking the program?! Thank you!

Multiple people interviewed me. They asked what made me want to pursue nursing, what motivates me, what my strengths and weaknesses are. I can't remember what else.

So far I am enjoying the program. The semesters are broken into 10 week blocks. The first 10 weeks for the first semester were very test heavy and there was a lot of material to learn. During the second 10 weeks, we started clinicals. I just started the second semester on 1/2 so we'll see how this semester goes.
