NOTICE: COVID-19 MEASURES

Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, Albany State University's Department of Nursing's main office will be physically closed to the public until further notice. As this will affect our programs' admission processes, please be aware of the following updates to our policies and procedures:

The "default" nursing program application deadline listed on each program's page have been established in coordination with the Office of Admissions established application deadlines for each semester. Therefore, if the Office of Admissions extends their deadlines, we will adjust ours appropriately. Modifications to these deadlines are as follows:

  • Summer 2020 Applications: Effective April 1, 2020, Albany State University has extended its Summer application deadline to Friday, May 1, 2020. Consequently, our Summer program applications have been updated accordingly.
  • Fall 2020 Applications: Effective May 11, 2020, the Department of Nursing has elected to extend its Fall program application deadline to Wednesday, July 1, 2020.

Please be aware that extensions to program application deadlines may result in dealys in decision letter delivery, as program application considerations do not typically begin until after the conclusion of the applicaiton phase.

For those submitting a program application during this time period, please submit all documentation via mail to the following address in lieu of physically coming to campus:

Albany State University
Department of Nursing
2400 Gillionville Road
Albany, GA 31707

Additionally, ensure you scan a copy of your applications directly to the following individuals:

In consideration of testing site closures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Nursing has elected to accept applications without TEAS scores and potentially offer provisional acceptance to these applicants (further explained below). Please be aware that the TEAS is still a requirement for full program acceptance and continued progression within the program, and only the deadline by which these scores must be achieved and submitted has changed. This deadline extension will offer our applicants more time to prepare for this exam while simultaneously allowing testing sites more time to reopen and/or offer alternate test-taking modalities.

As noted previously, individuals submitting an application without TEAS scores may only potentially be granted, at most, provisional acceptance into the program prior to score achievement/submission. Provisional acceptance does not guarantee full acceptance or eligibility for continuation within the program, and failure to achieve and submit the program-specific score (within no more than two [2] attempts within a 12-month period) prior to the established deadline will result in the immediate revocation of acceptance status and prevent further progression through the program.

For applicants who receive provisional acceptance based on missing TEAS scores, please be aware of the following deadlines:

  • Summer 2020 Applicants: Applicants must have taken and passed the TEAS exam at or above the required program-specific score within no more than two (2) attempts within the past 12-month period by no later than Wednesday, July 1, 2020.
  • Fall 2020 Applicants: Applicants must have taken and passed the TEAS exam at or above the required program-specific score within no more than two (2) attempts within the past 12-month period by no later than Friday, July 31, 2020.

NOTE: Modifications to these deadlines may be made at a later date as more information becomes available.

 

Due to the campus closure, acceptance and denial letters/packets (otherwise known as "decision letters") may be sent via physically via postal mail and/or electronically via email. Please refer to the listing below as reference for how you will be notified of this decision:

  • For Summer 2020 ASN/HCP-to-RN Bridge applicants, decision letters will be sent via physical mail only.
  • For Fall 2020 ASN applicants, decision letters will be sent via physical mail only.
  • For Fall 2020 BSN applicants, decision letters will be sent electronically via email to your student account and the email indicated on your application (if different). A physical copy of these letters will be mailed once the campus reopens to the public.
  • For Fall 2020 RN-to-BSN applicants, decision packets will be sent electronically via email to your student account and the email indicated on your application (if different). A physical copy of this packet will be mailed once the campus reopens to the public.

Per our Client Executive for ATI in Georgia, please utilize the below guide as an option for students to take TEAS remotely via Sylvan Learning Centers:

  • The first step in preparing to take the TEAS assessment is to create an ATI account. Go to www.atitesting.com and follow the on-screen instructions to create your account.
  • Once you have finished creating your account, please navigate to the online store at the top of the screen.
  • On the left hand side of the screen, please click on "TEAS" under the "Register for..." menu.
  • Pick the program type (TEAS for NURSING STUDENTS), country (United States), state (Georgia), and city (Cartersville), then click "Next"
  • Click "Learn More" to find out if it is a Remote Session (can be taken anywhere) or an Onsite session (must be physically at the location).
  • Find a time slot for a Remote Session and click "Register."

Please contact ATI's Support Center if you have further questions or concerns regarding this process. The Department of Nursing does not coordinate these testing dates and times..

Please contact Albany State University's West Campus Testing Center at asutesting@asurams.edu or (229) 500-2921 if you are inquiring about taking the TEAS exam while Albany State University's campuses are closed. The Department of Nursing does not coordinate these testing dates and times or make decisions about cancellations.
