    Dang I wish I knew you could have taken patho elsewhere -- I would have done that! I start DSN in April. Even though I am not in school yet I have still recommended it to peers. I just got done with the hesi entrance exam and the interview and filling out information for student loans and everything has gone smoothly. They gave me enough time to get all of the paperwork done in time even though I work a full time job! Pretty excited to call DSN my school soon!

    How was the interview process and the entrance exam? I am flying to Colorado to do my interview and test in three weeks and just curious about what to expect.

    I'm curious for those who have/are in the process of taking the HESI, what edition is the book you are studying from? Does it make a difference between the 2nd and 3rd? I'm out of state, and even though I am just now sending my application, I would like to start preparing, just in case.

    The current edition that they are using for study material is the 3rd edition.The HESI was fun, study the book and you should be fine. Pay particular attention to the vocabulary. I received a 93+ something percentile on my test cumulatively. I received my acceptance letter today and I start in July! Good Luck!

    I used the 3rd Edition as well. Read my notes over on the other DSN thread if you want more details on the test and application process.

    Was patho difficult to take online? I read that the new patho professor at DSON has a 100% pass rate. Debating if it is worth the money.

    I am taking patho this summer. It will save time and money come fall. I figure if I can pass french online and then stats and algebra online, I can take on patho. I know it will be some work, but any money I can save will help.

    Hi everyone, I'm from CA and will be coming to DSN for an interview in January. If I do well on my interview and pass the entrance exam, I will have to move to Denver for the BSN april start date. Since I have never been to Denver before and have no clue about this state, I was wondering if anyone could give me info regarding how the city is like, the weather, etc. Also, how the school itself is like and what to expect during the first term of nursing school. Also, since I'll be moving from CA, does anyone know where I can find a decent, yet affordable apt. in Denver (possibly near DSN)?? I am also looking for a roommate(s). Any kind of info. would be grrreat! Thank you!
