    Can anybody tell me what the lowest total points were to get in when you were accepted to the Brookhaven nursing program? I am really having a tough time obtaining this information. I just want to know how many points would be relatively "safe".

    (By points I mean GPA+support courses+HESI score)

    The admission process has changed so the number of points for our class may not really help you but I believe it was 14 points. The top 60 students were selected for interviews then the faculty selected 40 students based on those interviews.

    I believe this time there will be no interviews just the top 40 students will be selected based on their points.

    Good luck.

    Thanks, I appreciate the info. We don't have interviews this semester. It's just kind of hard to know where you stand when you don't know how many points everyone else has! So basically I just have to play the waiting game until November.

    Hi everyone. I am sure that everyone is as happy as l am that we do not have to pick up Patents on Sunday. I am planing on riding the Dart down on Monday to the trial. How is every one else going down.

    Sorry I can't make it to the mock trial this time. I have an interview at Childrens for my internships! Shucks, it means I am missing out on community service hours... ah well. I will be going to skills lab a lot more in the future to help you guys out on Mondays. Have Fun!

    I am taking the dart also, but from the garland station. Do we need to bring anything?

    I might take dart also, from the Spring valley station. I haven't heard about bringing anything, so I guess not, unless you want to take notes or something.
    Josh, you get community service hours for the mock trial? That's nice. It counts as a clinical day for us. Well, hope your interview goes well!

    Yea!!! Last day of Clinical for Med/Surg. I am so Happy that part is over. Now only two more tests and the semester is over and then a whole 12 hours until next semester.
    Hope every one is doing great.

    Howdy neighbors!

    I'm starting at mountainview next semester and was wondering if anyone was graduating, or knew of anyone that was graduating that wanted to sell their books (from Brookhaven)? That first semester cost is going to be painful enough as it is.

    Yep I am graduating in less than a month. I would love to sell you my books, but I know for a fact that both the Fundamentals and Med Surg books are an edition to old. Of course, I have others if you are interested. Let me know.

    I don't know if anyone as mentioned Barnes and Noble before, however, if you have a discount card with them (25.00 a year). They have up to 40% off on new hardbacks, this includes text books. I bought two of my nursing books for January there and have saved nearly $50.00 off the two. If you have your ISBN number you can make sure they are the exact book you need. I plan to buy all my text books there. I know I won't want used, because these are books I will be keeping forever.

    I am in second semester and used the old edition books and did not have a problem. Page numbers are different and a some different information not much. You can also look at Half Price Books ( the one in McKinney and on Northwest Highway) I also got a large Majority of my books on line I would just Google the ISBN number. I also found some on ebay. Good luck

    I've contacted both the bookstore and the nursing folk, to find out if an old edition is fine. I think they will be.
