    Pamski,

    Still no word yet?? I just took the HESI yesterday....if you don't mind me asking, what is your GPA? I'm trying to decide if I want to retake or not.

    THANKS! Best of luck!

    Peanutbutter, no you do not. You don't need your cna certificate to do clinicals in a bachelors program.

    I was wondering if anyone was told when the acceptance letters for the Spring 2012 semester will be sent out? I have not yet applied, I will do so Saturday and also take the HESI exam that day. I have a 3.1 gpa. At my current college where I completed many science courses I have a 3.4, but my gpa was brought down by my first attempt at college a few years ago at a different school. I was just wondering if anyone else has a similar gpa and feels like they have a good chance at getting in.

    5m0wen,

    my GPA is a 3.2. I actually just got my phone call today that I was accepted for spring!! Woot! I actually got a letter first before they even called me. How did you do on your HESI?

    I got a 92 on my HESI - still waiting to hear from Chamberlain as to whether I got in or not. How many days before you got the call did you get your letter?

    CONGRATS ON BEING ACCEPTED!!!! :O)

    Thank you! Psh, I don't think you should re take it at all! That is a great score. I got an email sent from some e mail dress with a subject of, "pre-enrollment eligibility". With a tracking number. I got my letter, then two days after I got a phone call.

    For those of you that go here, how was the HESI exam? What is on it? How well do you have to do in order to be accepted into the program? How high of a GPA do you need to be admitted?

    What are the pre-req's for getting into this school? I currently have a BA already and I am looking into the Second BSN degree. Have completed Biology, and Chemistry Spring semester going to take Anatomy I and Microbiology

    How many days are you in classroom, and how many days are you in clinical? Are clinicals during the week or on the weekend as well? Where are clinicals located? Do you get to choose your schedule? Also, do they have an evening program or just during the day? I am asking because I would like to work a few days a week, but need to find out what would be better for me.

    When is the next enrollment? How long does it take to hear if you have been accepted or not?

    Thank you for your response.

    Hello!
    So, I just got accepted into their program, I got an 86.8% on my Hesi and have a 3.2 GPA. Honestly, I don't think the Hesi was bad at all... Pretty simple. Enrollment ended yesterday for spring, but if you contact them today maybe you could try and apply within the next few days, But i am not an advisor, your best bet would be to contact someone.

    I applied really early for spring semester, actually in August. I didn't hear back from my advisor until the first week in November. I am going to take my drug test and everything on December 2nd.

    The Hesi..

    Reading comprehension: really isn't that bad, simple actually. Nothing harder than what is in their study guide.

    Vocabulary: was the hardest part for me, this is the section I did the worst in, so know every vocab word in the study guide, literally!!

    Grammar: Again, simple, study the guide. Know when is the proper place to put a common, period, ect. In the study guide they go into words that you should know the difference between (ie, there, their, they're)

    Math: also, exactly what is in the study guide, simple adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fraction. Conversions, I wouldn't say mostly a specific conversion, just know all of them. Word problems as well, but again nothing harder than what is in their study guide.

    Biology: I thought that this was going to be the hardest part because, Bio, not my thing! But, if I past it with a 90, you'll be fine! So, it is basic stuff, know the study guide, but also know a little more. Know the microscope, for example, if the microscope is at 10x what power is that? Also, know a little bit of the hierachy, like, what is the name of some type of wild animal.

    Chemistry: again know the study guide, I did the best on this section and I hardly studied for it. I figured it would be my worst section, but I got a 98%!!! really just study the guide for this part..

    Anatomy and Physiology: I would say deffinately take at least one semester of anatomy before taking the hesi, because I felt like there was a lot of stuff on there from my first semester that I learned. But, don't just rely on one smester of anatomy deffinately also study the guide and know a little bit of everything. it was pretty intense now that I think about it, not super detailed just a lot of info covered in only 25 questions. Let's face it, you can only miss so many in order to pass this section, so again, my suggestion is take the first semester of A&P and then the rest study the guide..

    *Most important is to just not freak yourself out, because I left there and was not made at my score, but mad at the fact that I lost sleep over a test that wasn't even that bad.. Just know your Vocabulary and Anatomy and you will be great.

    *feel free to PM me and I can help you with more.
