    Good luck getting in!
    I have an 88 average as well, but my program requires 93+ to get in since other applicants in that bracket are going to get into one of the 36 slots. So my chances of getting in are slim.
    Thank you!
    Wow a 93+ ? If you dont mind, may I ask what school it is you're taking the entrance exam for? Must be a really prestigious school if they require 93+

    Also, is this for a LPN program or a RN program?

    Carrington College Reno NV. Its RN program, and there's around 300 applicants this time. They assume you'll need a 92-95 or higher to get in.

    :X Could you perhaps retake it and study to improve your scores?

    I'm a bit worried about the HESI, as it hasn't been required before now for the local college's nursing program, but it will be required starting Fall 2013, and of course that is when I finish my pre-requisites and will be applying to begin. Thanks very much for this information!

    I already took it again. Unfortunately I did better where I needed to but worse in the areas I was once really good at.

    Eek! I hate the hesi pretest crap. I wish we didn't need it. But it's SO competitive that they need some way to wean out applicants.

    Are you studying from the Evolve study guide? I studied from the quizlet.com and I also studied the GED book (Math and English) not sure if you want to buy those books as well.

    thank you for the link! I sent you a message, but for some reason I am not allowed to reply back? (I'm new to this site). Any advice for the a&P? I have been studying off quizlet and the Mosby book. I reviewed all the Hesi Hints ( from the 2nd/3rd ed)

    for the vocab portion..Are there any medical terms? i also been studying from a pdf of the Hesi A2 secrets for terminology?
