HESI A2 for both FIU and BC?
- 0Nov 5, '11 by Yellow23I am applying to both FIU and Broward College for nursing. I have to take the HESI A2 pre-entrance exam for both schools and they both require for the same topics in the test math,reading etc.. However, if i take the test in Broward College do i have to take it again at FIU?
Thanks in Advance
- 0Nov 21, '11 by DaughterofEve084I'm in the same boat.
If I had to guess, we can just take it at one place and send the scores to the other college(s).
I'm planning on taking it next month at FIU and sending the scores to BC and MDC as well (hope to get into FIU, but sending it to the other colleges JUST in case).
If you ever find out for sure, let me (us) know!
- 0Nov 21, '11 by leandritohey friends... welcome to the boat.. lol i am in the same plane and i want to take it next month or maybe january... .The HESI A2 is not accept it at mdc.. so be aware of that.. also i called fiu today and they dont get the phone.. i want to know the areas that are gonna be cover in the test.. Please if any of you know let me know.. .. i really want to get into fiu..
- 0Nov 21, '11 by DaughterofEve084Oh yeah! I forgot MDC takes the TEAS. Ugh...another exam to take :P
About FIU right now: last week, I went, paid for the HESI exam, and was on my way to reserve my seat. The Assistant Director then had me sit down and was explaining that there's some confusion between FIU and the HESI people about not having the updated version of the HESI exam or something to that effect.
He said they couldn't save me a save till this is all resolved. So, he said to continue calling to try to find out when they can reserve me the seat (with my already paid receipt).
So, if you get to talk to them, they'll probably tell you about it.
If they fixed everything and everything's ready to go, let me know so I can go!!!!!
Also, I spoke with an academic counselor at the Modesto campus about 2 weeks ago. I can't say for sure, so don't take my word on it, but he made it sound like they test you on everything in the HESI, but just your math and reading scores count as far as FIU's concerned. If you find out definitively, let me know about that as well!!!!
- 0daughterofeve084 i just called fiu and they told me the same thing... they lady said that nusing school does not want the testing department to take the test yet until they release the new test version.she said that you we should call by the middle of december to see whats the final answer or if not we should wait until january. the areas that are covered in the test are math,reading,vocabulary,grammar,chemistry,anatomy and physiology and learning and professional life or something like that ...
- 0Nov 22, '11 by DaughterofEve084the problem is, I'm planning on taking the COM and NUR pre-req at FIU in the spring. I want to take the HESI on Dec. 12th. That way, I don't throw away over $2000 on classes if I don't pass the HESI. So I can't "wait till January." This is really ridiculous from FIU. So, they want us to call mid-December, but in the mean-time, they got my $50 to take the test? Nice......... Why are they letting people pay for the test, if they're just going to say "oh, there's a problem. Try back in a month." I really hope they figure this out (SOON)
- 0yeah i am in the same situation... i hope to do that test and if you take it let me know how was it... !!!! good luck... i was planning to take those classes online during spring but then is going to be too much... so if you take them please if you dont mind to keep all the material of the class and then send it to by email or another way.. it would be very nice
- 0Nov 23, '11 by DaughterofEve084I thought about not taking them, but I'd rather just get it over with and have the entire summer off. So....... I'll be taking 21 credits at Miami Dade and those 6 credits for the online FIU classes during the spring. Let's see how it goes! and sure thing, I'll try =)
