Tallahassee Community College Nursing Program - Fall 2012

  1. 0 I am starting a new thread to see how many hopefuls there are out there who are trying to get into TCC's nursing program. I want to get into the fall program and I have completed all of my prerequisite courses, but I still have to take the HESI. Is there anyone who has taken the entrance exam already? How did you do? For those of you who are studying to take it by May, good luck!

    I'm hoping for Fall 2012 admission and just took the HESI today. I scored a 96% overall, with each section over 90%, so with the bonus points believe I got 116/120. It took me about 2 hours.I was really stressed about taking it and am just so relieved it's over. I came straight home and submitted the nursing "application", so it's going to be a long wait! Good luck!

    Campo that's an excellent score, well done! I hope to score in the 90's as well, with all the competition to get into the program I need as high of a score as i can get. Future2012 the HESI is a four section test of skills which include: Reading, Grammar, Vocabulary, and Mathematics.

    Well the deadline for the admission is May 9th i believe and they ask to allow 6 to 8 weeks before they announce who made it so late June to early July.

    Thanks all, I spent a lot of time preparing for the HESI because I am a returning adult student and was really out of practice in math. I hadn't taken a math course since 1996! I would advise getting the Evolve study guide for the HESI. It was a great resource and it really helped a lot. I was a literature major in my previous school "life" so the vocab, grammar and RC sections were pretty easy for me. If you feel you are weak in those sections the study guide gives a lot of help in those areas as well. There were several vocab words on my test straight from that guide. Good luck!

    I just finished all my pre-req's. I go this coming week to take the HESI. I have the evolove Study Guide, and so far, I feel pretty good about it. There are definitely some things I need to brush up on, but I feel pretty good about it all-in-all. My GPA is just a 3.3, so I am going to have to bust a$$ on the HESI in order to get in. Only 40 spots, you know.

    I went to the information session last month, and Diane Douglas said they already had near 300 applicants. THAT is what scares me! A perfect score is 160, so the most I can possibly get is 153 points, and that is with a PERFECT HESI score, which is NOT likely, lol. It's okay, though. I made it though Dr. Beregowitz for A&P 1 & 2, so the HESI should be a peice of cake, LOL!!!

    P.S. Good luck to everyone trying to get in!!

    Good luck Girlsotson! The HESI wasn't too bad...if you feel good after going over the study guide you should do great.
    I had no idea there was an information session, is there anything else you heard there that might be useful for those of us who didn't make it? 300 already, wow!

    Ms. Douglas just went over that was on the website. Basically stuff about acceptance, like how it only matters about your gpa and HESI scores combined, the average score was in the 150's, and that there generally aren't any ties. She said there were a lot of applicants already, but many have applied to multiple schools, so just bcause they get accepted into TCC doesn't mean that is wher they will attend. Also, that there is an alternates list, but it doesn't carry over to the next semester, you have to reapply. You can only take the HESI twice...EVER. The HESI score is about 50x more important than your gpa, as it is worth more points.

    Most of the stuff she went over you can find on the website, www.tcc.fl.edu/nursing .

    It wass exciting, but also discouraging (knowing how many applicants vs. how many openings). Have you been to th eGhadsvini Center? WOW! It is huge! Very impressive!

    The center really is impressive!
    These numbers do sound intimidating...but reading over some past posts from other semesters, it sounds like people with around 145 got in last fall, and I think I saw a 138 from this spring? I know it changes every semester though. If I have everything right, I think I'm coming in with 152 so I have hope.
    Best of luck to you on your HESI. You'll have plenty of time so don't rush yourself and double check everything. I did each math problem three times and still had over 2 hours after I was finished with everything. ; )
