ITT Tech Nursing- Rancho Cordova - page 4

Is anyone familiar with this new program, or know anyone who is currently in the first class? I'm finding mixed reviews about it online, and I just took their HESI exam today. I got a 91 overall, so... Read More

    Anyone here that has gone to the information session tell me as far as transfer or pre-reqs how that works.

    I spoke with a rep today on the phone and she says she belives they only accept grades of "B" or better? I have completed almost all of my prereqs however in my early years I was not the best student so I have my share of C's. The idea of starting over is not appealing.

    That's is correct! They only accept Bs and all classes must be passed with a grade of B as well.

    Anyone have any updates on the March class? I just re-took the Hesi, and I scored a 93.67 this time, compared to my 91 from last time. I hope that means I get in this time!!! How is everyone else doing?

    Hi Marykdarling, As far as I know there are no updates for the March class, other than they are still testing for it. I go to take the HESI on the 16th. I hope I can score high enough to possibly join you in March. How many others tested with you? Other than the HESI study guide, did you use any other methods to study?

    Hi LAD22! Good luck on taking your HESI. Are you re-taking, or is it your first time? The people that I was testing with were all re-testers. There were about 30 on the list for that day, but only about 15 who showed up. The average score for my testing date was an 84, but that can be a little off because ITT manipulates the calculation a little bit. I just used the HESI guide to study because every one I talked to said it really helped them, but honestly, it didn't really help me that much. In sections especially related to vocabulary, you either know it or don't, so it makes it really difficult for that kind of thing! As long as you remember basic algebra, and go over the reading comp. guidelines, you should be fine! Let's keep each other updated!

    Hi Marykdarling, thank you for the info. I will be taking the HESI for the first time, I'm nervous but I just need to keep my confidence. We should def keep each other updated. Talk to you soon.

    That's great that you're taking it for the first time, because maybe you can take it again before the March class is decided so you can get an even higher grade than before! The second time was much easier for me, and I finished about thirty minutes faster; I knew exactly what to work on. Oh, and bring a sweater. That room is freaking COLD.

    Assuming a person has no prereqs fine, or only some, how much does the program at ITT tech cost?

    How long is the program, assuming no prereqs are already done?

    Do they offer an lvn to RN bridge?

    Thanks!

    Hi Vintagemother. Without any of the pre-reqs finished, the program costs 52; it is 497 dollars a unit. For someone like me who has completed all of the pre-reqs, it's a little less than 30k. Honestly, I probably wouldn't have even considered the program for the full price, especially when you can take the classes for 47 dollars a unit at a junior college, but that's just me!

    The program is 27 months.

    They do not offer an LVN to RN program.

    Thank you for that information! I agree that 52k I'd quite a bit, while 30k is quite reasonable.

    Maybe give it some time to develop and get a track record before going there.

    Hey LAD22! How did your HESI exam go today? Were there a lot of other students?

    Hi Marykdarling, my internet was down and I was just able to get back on. I did my HESI and scored an 88, so I am retaking it in Nov. I did well in the math portion but my vocab and grammar brought my scores down. I am confident that I can score higher next time around. There were about 13 people there, which was a lot less than the number of people at the presentation. When you retake the HESI is it the exact same as the first time? I am trying to remember some of the vocab words but I did that portion first and am having a hard time remembering what words were on it. Also- when the evolve website shows your score, was is different that what ITT said?
