FSCJ Fall 2015 Hopefuls

  1. I know it is a little early for this but I just didnt want to wait. I want to see where everyone stands on their classes and when they will be or have taken the HESI. I am enrolled in my last two prerequisites and I will be starting them in January which are my A&P2 and Micro. I am hoping to take the HESI either in February or March after I have had most of my classes finished.

    I also received the packet from Cheryl and started calculating my points as I go. Ready to get this next semester finished and the HESI completed.

    Hi Shirley, I'm completing my last prereq college algebra this semester also and applying in March. I took the HESI last month but plan to re-take it in Feb. to hopefully up my score. Took my BLS last week, so glad things are progressing and finally getting closer

    Sounds like things are progressing nicely for you. Good luck with your second go on the Hesi.

    I'm planning to do my BLS right after the new year. As for the Hesi, I'm going to take it in March so that I have had enough time to study. I'm still going to be taking A&Physiology II so i want to have a couple months of that class under my belt.

    That sounds like a good plan! My lowest score on the HESI was on the A&P section so I need to study up more, it's been a few years since I took the classes. Don't know if you have a place in mind already for your BLS but St. Vincent's has it for $20 for students

    I actually did not have a place in mind but if St Vincents only has it for $20 then that sounds like the place to go. Thank you.

    I am going to purchase my HESI Study guide hopefully within the next couple days so that I have a couple months to study up before I take the test.

    So after looking over the packet I received from Cheryl and reading some of the posts from the Summer 2015 forum I see that we can not apply to the program until we COMPLETE micro and obtain a grade. Ugh... I am taking that and A&P II this spring semester. So I guess my hopes of applying to get into the program for the Fall semester is out. Guess that will just leave me more time to study for the HESI.

    Awww that's disappointing! Yeah I believe Spring/2015 is the first semester that started. I decided to take a 8 week college algebra class to be done prior to the April 1 application deadline for fall. At least you'll have time to take the HESI twice if need be since you'll have a few extra months.

    Very true. Guess this also gives me a chance to get a jump start on my prereqs for my Bachlors since I will continue on after I get my associates. Got to look at the silver lining.
