    I'm in A&P 2 this semester and I'm planning on taking micro this summer as well (if there is an evening class). Only one girl told me, I think she made a 92,93, 94? She did very well. (I think she has all A's besides A&P. She has a C in that class. I cant remember what her grade in Math was). You will get 3 hours to complete all 4 sections. The math and reading took me the longest. I finished 15 minutes before time was up. Honestly, I felt like I was rushed through the entire thing. Plus, you don't get a break in between the sections. (Or at least no one in my testing class did). Also, I've heard BRCC will release the statistical GPA and HESI scores of those who got in from the previous year. Not sure how true that is, but I'm too afraid to call and ask. lol Probably 70% of my A&P2 class is applying this year! I think there may be a big pool this year.
    Ok, one more question... Calculator, did they let you use one? I am going to call and ask lol. I don't want to but they can either say yes or no! Right, when I took anp1 last semester almost EVERYone was applying for nursing. They should definitely find a way to get more funds to accept more people! 60 people is not by far a huge amount. Let's just hope that we get in! I know this is definitely my calling, so if this year doesn't permit my acceptance I am definitely going to continue taking classes toward my bachelors and maybe apply a few other places as well! Since my gpa will be like 3.4 I'm really going to need a 90++ on the hesi. We shall see! I go Monday! ( I did call and ask about the lowest gpa accepted last year, it was a 3.1! I didn't think to ask about hesi score. )

    You can only use the computer's calculator. But be careful with it...sometimes when you click a number, it doesn't show up so you have to check everything.

    I really hope we get in too! Can you e-mail me when you call? I'm anxious to know! haha!

    I started the program this past fall, and I know a lot of you that are applying have tons of questions that seem to never get answered (at least I felt that way leading up to getting the acceptance letter last year!), so hope this helps you out!

    1. No, they won't show you statistics on who they accept (GPA, HESI, etc.) I asked!

    2. Be prepared for a long summer! We had multiple deadlines to meet throughout the summer (Medical stuff, various applications, etc.- it's not difficult, just time consuming. Especially if you're working full time) Also, getting into Nursing school isn't cheap. . . I think books were $300ish (don't buy from the bookstore!), immunizations/labs $200ish w/o ins. (some insurances cover), uniforms/supplies $150ish

    3. Try and take AP2 over the summer if you haven't taken it already- taking it with Fundamentals will be tough!

    4. Fundamentals itself is not hard. . . just different. There's a lot of information to cover and well, let's just say Nursing exams SUCK! (Here's the question and here are the answer's. . . and btw, ALL the answers are correct, but please give me the BEST correct answer. . . Ugh!)

    5. Clinical and lecture schedules change each semester, so I can't say what yours will be like. But our in-hospital clinicals were only 6 weeks out of the semester, one day a week. Before that, you spend a lot of time in the lab learning skills. Lecture for us was 2 days a week, 2 hrs each day.

    Hope that helps!

    Can anyone tell me anything about Roberts for clinicals? Maybe the site location and how the teacher is?
