BSN Traditional Track Frequently Asked Questions
What if my GPA is less than 3.0?
You are not eligible for admission for the Traditional BSN track.
What does the track cost?
Are there scholarships?
Do I have to take my prerequisites at FAU?
When will you decide who gets in the program?
Do you have dorms on campus?
Will I need to send immunization records for FAU Student Health?
What is pre-nursing?
Once admitted to FAU, you will be a pre-nursing major. This does not mean that you have been admitted to the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing’s BSN Traditional track.
Can I repeat courses?
Yes. The Admissions Committee reviews the highest of either the first attempt grade or the first attempt repeat grade in any Nursing Common Prerequisite course. Grades of "W" are not included in this consideration; they are neutral.
How often can I take the TEAS?
The TEAS can be taken every 30 days. The highest National Percentile Rank Score will be considered in admissions decisions. TEAS scores are valid for admissions applications for up to 5 years.
How do I report my TEAS scores?
Scan your TEAS results sheet into your Nursing CAS file.
What are the hours of the program?
You will spend between 24 and 32 hours per week in classes and clinical nursing practice; that does not include study time. In general, nursing practice courses are from 7am to 3pm and are scheduled 1 to 2 days per week. However, clinical experiences may be scheduled for evenings or weekends. Students are scheduled for clinical sites closest to their home. The Traditional BSN track is an appropriate track for those who need to or choose to work.
