    Hi everyone! Sorry to impede on your post, but I am about to apply to the CEP program next month and I have been following your threads for the past couple of months in preparation. Union-Jack (well, I guess your name is Apple-core now!!) I've ready many, many posts on here with your thoughts! I read on another forum that you got in with a 3.7 GPA is that correct? I have a 3.78 GPA with a 96% on the Math portion of HESI and a 98% on the English portion, as well as an associates degree. Obviously there is no guarantee but there is something slightly comforting knowing people with similar points as you were successful at getting in!
    Wow.....what a perfect scores you have. Don't worry. I have read one post in which the student had 3.50 gpa, but his hesi score was great like you.....and he got placed. He wrote in his post that only the hesi score plays a role, gpa doesn't matter much.
    I have also heard from my advisors that only a few student have a 98%-100% hesi score. So, you are good.

    Hi there -

    You are welcome to join in here - everyone is welcome! Yes, my GPA was about 3.7 .... or something like that. I honestly don't recall the exact figure, and because I'm now a semester in (I started in August with the University - online portion) my GPA has changed now because it has added on my grades for the 4 classes I took this semester. I can't recall my HESI scores either (sorry - I'm not much help here!) but they were in the high 90s, yes.

    I think your scores look excellent - you certainly stand a good chance of getting in with them. I know it seems like a tough grading system, but then again the course is rigorous and academically challenging, so they need to be assured that the students are up to the challenge. In some states they dropped the standards for admission so that it became "fairer", and then the retention rate dropped dramatically as students fell out of the course due to the pressures.

    Hi There Sayla -

    Well, your GPA is stellar, and if you improve your HESI (don't know what it was before - I'm just going off what you said above) then you are in with a very good chance of getting into the CEP. I have a friend going to Phoenix Community College and she loves it there!

    Block 1 (for me) starts January 16th 2018, so about 3-4 weeks away from today! Yikes! Each University has a slightly different schedule. The one I am with started in August this year, so I just finished semester 1 with them last week! I now have 2 more years with the University and 2 years with the Community College, and I hope to graduate both in December 2019. However, I know that the Universities are flexible if you find yourself getting overwhelmed with the work, and if you need to take a semester off from the BSN (online) part, they will work with you. You can't take time off from the ADN at community college though!

    From my understanding, you wear scrubs only for Lab and any time you are at a clinical site off campus. For lecture you can wear regular clothes; there is a dress-code...although its very reasonable and pretty "standard". Having said that, I am thinking I might wear scrubs every single day I am in school. That way I don't have to think about what I'm going to wear. LOL!

    Hi Apple-Core,
    That's a wise decision. Wearing uniforms will save your time, energy, and money. I wear my cultural dress each day (which is kind of uniform). That's help me a lot. I don't like spend my energy for choosing my clothes every single day, which saves me tons of money too..
    It's great to know that student can take break from BSN in their difficult situation. Since my childs are like baby-baby, I go to hospitals a lot. I have completed this semester through a very bad time. My 7 months old had a surgery during my final exams week. God saved me, and I just handled them.

    Yikes!!! Soon you are going to start your block 1. I know that you are very excited. Good luck!!!
    My hesi score for math is 100%, but my English score is terrible. I am studying hard and hoping to improve my English score.
    Thank you Apple-Core. Have happy holidays.
