Danielle Baril
41:38
I am a caregiver as well, but I work for a non-medical company. I have my CNA certificate though
Alexis S.
42:05
Does being a med tech count for a volunteer face to face hours at a assisted living?
Diana Ramos
43:19
Caregiving has to be done through an agency, care of family member will not count. But if you are licensed as a CNA you will earn points for that.
Stacy Anderson
43:31
Care givers need to be licensed as a home health aid / EMT/ C N A to count as work experience. All volunteer work needs to be documented by a supervisor/ manager.
Danielle Baril
44:02
If we are not working as a CNA, but have the CNA certificate, that still counts?
Stacy Anderson
44:39
Danielle, yes it counts for 5 points
Amanda Hernandez
45:03
Is Psych 1 - intro to psych ?

I`m high school student (Tesoro HS) how can I complete prerequisite courses before admission?
Ai My Tran
48:48
I took. my teas remotely from the website but did not pass. how would I remediate if I didn’t take it from the school? would I have to self remediate?
Stacy Anderson
50:08

Stacy Anderson
50:30
Jose EMT and C N A license are both 5 point
Megan McMillan
50:36
sorry I didn’t mean to make that a direct message; would a monitor tech certification be considered for telemetry staff?
Jose Aguilar-Picciuto
51:43
I noticed that being an ER tech is different points from an EMT license. I am an er tech but in order to be an ER tech I have to have my Emt license so I am confused as to which points I would receive in this case.
Grace Kim
52:16
Can you get more than 2 points for language proficiency if there are more than 1 other language?
Josue Martinez
52:37

Earlier, you referenced the ATI website for studying tools. From research, there are a lot of other study guides/practice tests. Do you have any suggestions for the best study aid for the ATI TEAS? Which study platform best represents the actual test?
Stacy Anderson
56:24
If you had direct patient care within the last 5 years with your license still active yes it would count. If it just recently expired it would still count.
Amy Green
56:28
Do you expect the point cutoff to rise higher than 85 points for future cohorts
Josue Martinez
57:30
yes, I got 1000 hours as a licensed CNA within a 2 year time frame, but my license will expire August. I don’t want to renew it but it ifs required for the points then I will
Elham Bagheripiry

I have used over 100 units and I got my AA degree finally, am I still qualified for grants and scholarships within the program?
Josue Martinez

Cassidy Tran
01:15:12
For the last cohort admitted, the cut off was 85 points. It changes every cohort
