Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,
I'm starting this thread for students looking to start(ing), and (or) finishing there pre's by spring of 2013 at Broward College. Also for those who are entering (or) looking to enter the Nursing Program in Fall 2013.
We are exactly one year away from this program. So tell me what classes are you taking or have left?
I have Fall Math Intermediate, A&P II lab only, and Computers (need 6 credits to get loans.) Winter College Algebra or Statistics and Chem 1032& Chem lab
Summer Microbiology and Micro Lab.
Yesterday I visted advisement at South, and when I was leaving I got a wake up call that now I will only live, eat, breath nursing school. I never felt this way before. Once me and my advisor went over my Education Plan I started to feel that school going to get harder.
Hey I can do this and so can you.
** Let me know your thoughts guys. Until....
I'm getting ready to study the HESI Entrance exam. Broward College has changed how many times we can take the test. It use to be as many times as we wanted. Now as of July 2012 we can only take it twice. The first time we take it and do not pass it or a section. You have to wait 6 months in order to take the next one.
Therefore, do your very best to pass it the first time. I'm not strong in math, however I have no other choice but to be strong because Math is everywhere in this journey.
I plan on using these sites
read thoroughly and did the self-tests to know exactly what I was lacking and
how to do it, math fractions/percentages, even includes Reading Comprehension, Vocabulary, and more! I thank God for Anneliese Garrison, RN at caring4you.net for the West Coast University HESI Study Guide!!
~ [COLOR=#003366]HESI A2 vocab flashcards | Quizlet
Vocabulary - took the "test" multiple times and found that this along with others at quizlet (just type HESI A2 in the search box) was beneficial... such as [COLOR=#003366]Measurement conversions flashcards | Quizlet
for conversions, etc. See another: [COLOR=#003366]Testing Endocrine System - HESI | Quizlet
~ [COLOR=#003366]"+(dtit.length>0?decodeURIComponent(dtit.charA t(0) .toUpperCase()+dtit.substr(1)):"Practice Test")+"
helped with metric conversion and it is timed (good practice for quick thinking during test)
~ [COLOR=#003366]Solving Percent Problems - YouTube
Percentages were a bit tricky for me so I absolutely adored this guy's method for learning it BxR=P. Then .... [COLOR=#003366]Percent and Ratio Practice Questions
Practiced with these! Answers are at the bottom of the page
As well as my Hesi book and a Barrons Nursing Entrance Exam Book. It's August now and I originally planned to take the HESI in December until I realized the new requirements for HESI, so... by October I should have taking it. I have A&P 2 to retake Lab, Math1033, and HUN1202 (Nutrition) this semester.
What are you using???

I am in the same boat as you...I have the hesi book as well and I take it everywhere I go. I'm using the book as well as quizlet which is very helpful. One issue for me is that I recently moved to Melbourne, FL which is like a 1 hour and 40 min drive, but I am determine to do what I got to do. Good Luck to all of us!
