Prior to acceptance, the applicant must:
- have completed all prep-reqs
- have three professional recommendations
- taken the TEAS test and scored above the National Average
- have a current CPR card
- be current in all immunizations
- write a Plan of Success
For me, I didn't have an immunization record since A&M had long since destroyed all those from back in the day. So I had to go get blood work to determine immunity, and then had to go get 6 more shots that didn't show up on the blood work. Be aware, this might happen to you!
I took my TEAS and scored an 85. This will be discussed in another post as I know it is a tedious test that many people have tons of questions about.
I retook CPR since my certification expired in 2010.
My Plan of Success was a page long and addressed all the concerns the school posted: budget, transportation, child care, family obligations, study time, illnesses, etc.
All of it was packaged in a single manila envelope with my name on the outside and was delivered, in person, to the school on February 5th.
And then I waited....March, April, May....and May 12th, I received my answer!
