Anyone taking the hesi for fall nursing program w/Darton

  1. I'm scheduled to take it June 1. I just want to see is someone scheduled for that day or any other day in june. I know that is the only test month that Darton is doing for the fall. Anyway if you want to share your date or experience like is this your first time or second or so on? By the way this will be my second the first time I scored a 68 on the anatomy is what got me rejected.

    Hi, I wanted to ask you since you have take the A& P part before. What are the questions like and should I just study the guide or go back over some of my old A & P notes also?

    The book didn't help me at all on this part. It was mainly hormone questions when I took it Like stuff about T-cell and B- Cell and so on. I'm trying to decide if I'm going to take that part first again because you see your score right after you finish each section. If you don't do so good and you see your score afterwards It might distract you when you take the other parts. I know it varies with each person. I thought I would warn you. Its not like middle ga test when you get home you see it. No way you see darton's score after each section. Anyway just don't panic and worry because I think I was so worried about anatomy that I was trying to study everything there was to study. It cause me to second guess. Also I'm not sure if it will give me the same questions but we will see.

    I just took the HESI at Darton on the 26 of May. I did a heck of a lot better than I thought I would, and I didn't buy the study guide. I just made up my own flashcards based on what previous test takers said was on the exam. I scored a 90% overall, with AP being the lowest (80%, but still passing). It's all very straight-forward:

    Know this: For AP, study the hormones, B cells, T cells, and the functions of cell bodies (ribosomes, endoplasmic reticulum, the membranes), functions of thyroid, thymus, pituitary. Then there are the basic physical anatomy questions like 'where is the calcaneous located?' and 'between what two structures is the mitral valve located?' (actual test question for me).

    For Math: conversions - know how many milliliters in a gallon, how many ounces in a cup, etc. I found some good online sites and just made some flash cards for those. Also know how to convert pounds to kiligrams and vice-versa. Ratios and proportions! Add and subtract fractions! Change percentages into decimals into fractions, etc. You can use the basic calculator on the computer to help.

    The vocab and reading parts were easy for me, scoring 100% in both. Just know how to spell and take your time reading so you can comprehend whats being asked.

    Good luck!

    Thanks Limitless-Visions I am so nervous right now. I'm just ready for next Saturday to come so I can get it over with. I live in Macon so I will have about a 2 hour drive. Will let you know what I make. Did you apply to the Albany Campus or Cordele Campus? I applied to the Cordele, I am think maybe I should have applied for the Main Campus but oh well to late now :icon_roll. I wish you the best.

    I applied to the main campus. I wanted to apply to the cordele campus but they said if I were to start at cordele I would still have to do my last two semesters on the main campus. so I decided it would be best to use the main campus. I live three hours away so I'm moving there if I get in.

    Hay Bdycky I'm praying for you to do well on this test today. I hope everything works in your favor. I'm sure your still testing. Anyway, have a safe trip back home and let me know what happen when you get time to reset your mind. I remember when I took it I lost my appetite and I got a headache.

    Hey limitless I finished my test around 12.30. I did okay not as well as I would have liked to. I made an overall score of 84 percent. I also scored a 84 on the a&p part wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Math-90,grammar and Vocb-80,reading 84. So we would see what happens wish you the best.

    What was your class average? and how many were in your testing today? Was it alot of People? By the way you did excellent! Atleast you didn't score lower than an eighty on any of them. Now the waiting game again, how fun huh.

    The class average was a 79. I am not sure how many were there but I was number 50. I know I hope we get in if not then I will be reapplying again for Albany Spring admissions.

    Wow it seems like we had the same class avg which was good! We both made it over the class avg so that gives me some hope and you had seat number 50 so I would guess it may have been fifty something. Anyway I'm glad that part is over for me and you. I'm hoping we get our letters early because I have to move if I'm in. With three kids thats not easy. I have to be moved by the end of july because albany school systems for the kids start back August 6th so I don't have a lot of time. I'm trying to go somewhere next week to kill some time and get away from my mail box. Just let me know as soon as you get something from darton cause they move fast. I'm expecting the letters in two weeks since next friday(15th) is the last day they give the hesi for the fall applications. When I was rejected for the summer swainsboro location they said the letter would go out by April 16th and I got my rejection on March 31st on a saturday. So don't be surprised.
