    Hey Lina - I set an appointment for the week after orientation - this way I dont have to wait longer that necessary and will bring all the paperwork they give. Some people are using a walkin clinic but my insurance is cheaper than the clinic.

    Question to everyone/anyone: which hospitals are affiliated with which campuses? I know I saw this somewhere but cant seem to find it.

    We're only a few days away from our orientation session. When I RSVPed, I confirmed that there is no required dress code. I strongly suggest bringing a notebook and a few things to write with in case you misplace one. Who's excited? ;D

    I have yet to take it as well...I'm still preparing myself since they have changed their hesi requirement along with the option to only take it twice within a 6 month period.

    Congratulation. I just submitted my application for May 2013 and I'm very scared because my GPA is a 3.1. However, I scored high on the HESI. If you don't mind, what was you GPA and HESI scores??

    Congrats. I just submitted my application. I have 8 points with a HESI score of 90%, so hopefully I'm selected.

    HESI: 87.2% overall
    Congrats and Good Luck!

    Also, you can improve your GPA by taking a math you didnt take yet (as I did), or taking Micrbiology, or taking Chem, or Chem II, and give it all you got!!!
    You CAN do it. And keep applying

    And I heard that May is for the LPN to RN program. But I heard that that is not true as well. IDK?
    I applied for the August start, but got rejected and was told that August is Hyper super competative, and the GPA's accepted were 3.7 and higher. I was told that I could probably get in the January program as the GPA's are less competative. But I took a math that I didnt take before, studied all day and night, didnt have a life for 8 weeks (summer class) and pulled an A. Hence, I am now accepted. So keep applying!
