    Hi Guys,

    Just took the HESI and I'm actually more scared now than before taking the exam...I have a 3.5 pre-req gpa & a 70.57% on the HESI..I did really well on the non science parts but I bombed the a&p part, the chem and bio wasnt the best not to bad. I nervous as H-E- double hockey stick... can anyone give me some insight on whether I should retake or keep the score. I want to apply for the Spring 2013 intake and the app deadline is aug 15..so I would have to take the exam mid July..

    How long does it take for LSU to recieve our results????
    LSU receives the results immediately. Your GPA is awesome so I wouldn't worry about that. I would however try to retake the HESI if possible. You can always apply with that score and write an awesome statement paper and then see what happens. I have asked in the past what was the minimum HESI score they accept and LSU had told me there is so minimum. I once heard that the class average for the HESI is somewhere in the 70's but I'm not sure where I heard it from (maybe here?) and if it is true. Good luck and keep us posted!

    Important question for all current LSUHSC nursing students! I am so confused about the scheduling. Is their anyway anyone can give me their exact schedule for their SOPH I semester? I dont know if we have to attend Physiology for both days on Tuesday and Friday and for Anatomy do I have to attend each day on Monday, Wedensday and Friday? And for the labs we only need to attend once a week right? And for intro to nursing since its only 2 credits a week we only need to attend one of the times? Please help

    As far as I can remember you will need to attend all of the classes posted on the schedule; you especially don't want to miss any physiology classes. Good luck!

    Hi Everyone!

    So I am applying for Spring 2013 and am beyond nervous about getting in! I applied last semester to charity for the fall semester and didnt get in. So for the Spring I am applying to Charity and LSU however, I am dying to go to LSU! My pre-req gpa is 3.45 and I have not taken the HESI for LSU I will take it at the beginning of Aug. I took it for Charity and received 73%. How are my chances of getting in and is there any advice anyone can give me about the HESI? I have the book that they recommend and have been studying but want to try to do the best possible to try to better my chances of getting in. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

    @ysanchez0216, you sound like me. I applied to Charity a while ago and didn't get in. I'm applying for LSU and Charity Spring 2013 but amd DYING to go to LSU. I took the HESI three times. Once for Charity in which I got an 82% and twice for LSU in which I scored 84% on both. I didn't study for them since I was breaking my back trying to get good grades in my Microbiology class. So I think if I had studied I would have done better, I'm a little upset about my grade. My pre-req GPA is a 3.5 and overall GPA of 3.1. My overall GPA frightens me, but what can I do? The book they give you for the HESI pretty much goes over it all. The vocabulary is taken STRAIGHT from the book. Also, if you go to the Elsevier website and sign in to your account you can look at your previous scores and they will tell you what areas you missed (like in Math it might say you got one question wrong concerning ratios and then they have study material to go over it). Also the LSU HESI will score on Critical Thinking. That was the hardest for me because it will be real life nursing questions. I don't know how to go over that except to get Fundamentals of Critical Thinking book. Good luck though! Also I heard that they will also grade you on your essay so make sure you have a kick a** essay!

    @KristenNola I know exactly what you mean, I originally had a C in Micro but retook it this summer and just got my grade today with an A! Im so glad to have that over with, so now Im trying to focus on the HESI and my essay. Hopefully, Ill do well! Ill definitely have that book next to me til the day of the exam. Good luck to you too! Hopefully we'll both get accepted to LSU!

    Well, whoever said you can't get in with a C lied. My friend got in with 1 C and her GPA was a 3.0. So you can do it!!! Good Luck
