NAU Traditional BSN Spring 2011 - page 2
I sent my application in on Sept 2nd. :) I am applying for Yuma, AZ. I still have to take my HESI. :uhoh3: Just wondering if there's anyone else out there! :D... Read More
0Sep 27, '10 by ChrissyLove123I was told by the nursing advisor (don't know if I'm allowed to say his name on here lol) that I would get my letter approx the week before Thanksgiving. :0/ LONG WAIT!! He said it all about GPA, HESI scores, & classs still IP.
I'm applying for Yuma only.
0Sep 28, '10 by SteveNAUHey! im glad im not the only one freaking out i just handed in my application to NAU (U of A is 2nd choice) and took the HESI. it would be cool to see how everyone is coming along with prereq gpa and HESI scores to get a feel for the averages this semester. i finished all the prerequisites with a 3.75 and got a 93% on both the science and english sections of the hesi. ive heard only the science sections matter but i doubt thats entirely true. i guess it doesnt matter in my case but its still interesting.
and my advisers told me (For NAU at least) that last semester the average applicant gpa was a 3.7 and hesi score was 86%, with > 91.6% on hesi being the top tier. hopefully this semester isnt any more competitive
Chrissy: my advisers also say letters come about a week before thanksgiving, and yes that is a long time! ahh!
Good luck everyone!!!!
0Sep 29, '10 by ChrissyLove123Well I have a 3.91 GPA - 92.5 on the HESI - Micro & Nutrition still IP.
0Sep 29, '10 by mpg76Hi all~ I am applying to the NAU (Tucson) campus for Spring 2011. have a 3.65 GPA and am taking the HESI this Saturday. This nursing program is so competitive but I heard it is a good one to be in
0Sep 30, '10 by ChrissyLove123GOOD LUCK mpg76!!! If you have the HESI study book, make sure you look at the vocab. It's identical to the questions. Lots of fractions on the math
study the brain
basics of nerves
I would say do the reading first. It takes the longest to complete.
GOOD LUCK :0)Last edit by dianah on Oct 2, '10 : Reason: Terms of Service
0Oct 1, '10 by mpg76Thanks Chrissylove123!!!!! You are very helpful!!!!! I'll let you know how I did!!!! Are you applying for the Tucson program???
0Oct 3, '10 by mpg76I went to Pima Community College (West) yesterday to take the HESI and I guess NAU (Tucson) sent them the wrong access code so I couldn't take my test. I was there for 2 hours while phone calls were being made to tech people but since it was a Saturday no one was available from NAU. They did get a hold of one tech guy who said it was no longer an active code. So, I am going to take the HESI on October 5th (the last day possible). Ughhh frustrating.................
0Oct 3, '10 by SteveNAUim sorry mpg76 :/ that sounds really frustrating. maybe you can use the extra time you have to study a bit more and get a little more prepared? i was surprised to see on my test some hormones that were not covered in the study book. thankfully ive already taken a/pII, but i know some people havent yet and wouldnt be exposed to some hormones. for the test you should know:
insulin, glucagon, parathyroid hormone, calcitonin, oxytocin, antidiuretic hormone and the tropic hormones of the anterior pituitary. those are some of the most important ones to know for the test. if you have any questions let me know and ill try to help the best i can. i know were all competing for seats here but it shouldnt stop us from helping each other. good luck!! and take your time on the test, im a very slow test taker and i finished with 2 hours left
0Oct 3, '10 by ChrissyLove123Be careful how much detail you give Steve. Allnurses edited my post because it was "too much specific information" from the HESI.
I always think everything happens for a reason so I would think this means you have more time to study. I know that doesn't make it "feel" any betterfor you, mpg76. :0/
I thought Oct 1st was the deadline for everything to be done ???
0Oct 4, '10 by mpg76Thanks Steve and Chrissylove123 I really appreciate all the advice The application was due on October 1st but they opened up 2 more HESI dates which was October 2nd and October 5th. This will still be good for the Spring 2011 deadline. I'll let you know how I did....I did ask the advisor here in Tucson how many people applied and she said around 100-120 applicants.
0Oct 7, '10 by ChrissyLove123Well, I got the accpetance letter today to AWC's (my community college's) Nursing Program. I would like to have the one from NAU just so I KNOW already!!! I hate waiting so very much!
How did you do on the HESI mpg??? Was it easier/harder/the same as you expected it would be????
0Oct 7, '10 by ChrissyLove123I would ALSO like to know if anyone got a hint about what their chances are that they will get in???
