    wow, there was so many questions. mostly about how you would handle the challenges of being in the program. Especially if your married with kids. They want to see that you won't leave half way through the program. make them feel sure you won't. Giving them examples how you have followed through in other areas of your life. point out that you have a big cheering squad behind you. Good luck everyone. and a BIG YES on getting a study group when we finally make it.

    Congrats and good luck to all you guys. I called in today and hoping a response back within the week.

    Jmira - did she say that there's already been 200 tested for interviews, or is that the amount of students who got to the interview level?

    Helloooo =)

    Had my interview today--went well, I think. Precisely what Dexandmon said--lots of questions on how you'll handle outside stresses with the demands of school (they won't let you forget it's an intense program). They also asked how you'd handle the family and friends of a loved one who just suffered major physical trauma, how you do around the sight of blood, and your typical interview questions (strengths, weaknesses, etc)....really all stuff you can handle on the spot. My essay topic was, yes, why I wanted to be an RN. She gave me 20 mins and a minimum of 150 words. They were both very kind.

    Good luck to everyone! I live right up the street from the school--I see a lot of study groups at my place in our future!

    Quote from dexandmon
    I live 50 miles away and will be doing the commute (hopefully) everyday. If anyone who lives in the Glendale area wants to commute (when we get it let me know.
    I live in Ontario and work in Burbank...it's quite a commute, but the 210 and 57 have been great to me =)

    hi everyone... im new at this but find this site is so helpful... i was wondering if i can get some insite on questions i have about Everest College... id really appreciate it!

    i was considering going to Westcoast University but honestly it is too expensive.. i tried looking at it in all angles but paying back a loan for over 150k just seems ridiculos... now im looking into Everest College for the ADN RN program...

    can someone please tell me what kind of entrance exam i would need to take and what subjects for covered in the test?

    is there a practice exam?

    Hello everyone I was wondering if someone who has taken the HESI could clarify what is necesscary to pass the Hesi and please break it into sections....I know for West Coast University where I also was going to go you have a 80% pass rate but it just for Math and English.......also I want to know if there is anybody on here who is actually attending Everest and if your in the Nursing Program already and I have a question regarding the program.....I was wondering if once you start taking Nursing courses do they make take a HESI exam for example when your done with Pharmacology do they make you take a HESI exam for pharmacology because I know for fact that West Coast University makes you take an HESI and what I learned from a student that goes there is that it is super hard to pass the HESI which is given by the school and that it doesn't matter how good you do in the actual class , what matters is whether or not you pass the HESI exam at the end of that class. So just curious as to how Everest nursing program works?

    Thank you
