    This forum is pretty awesome. I just have a few questions if anyone wouldn't mind answering them. I'm applying for Fall 2014

    1. Say you did rather poorly in a pre-req class and took it over does LSU take the higher grade instead or do they average both grades?
    2. Just to clarify they only look at your pre-req courses in regards to GPA or overall? I did poorly in English I but I'm retaking it this semester so I was really worried about that. Then I also have like a C in Algebra...but all the other courses are As.
    3. HESI test do you take it at the LSUHSC facility or somewhere else?
    4. Anyone know the average age range of people applying?

    I believe they go for the higher score. I also think that they look at the complete package. If there is any focus spent on specific grades it will probably be your sciences since nursing is a science based field. HESI is taken somewhere else. Go to the prospective student page of LSUHSC's website for nursing and there is a link that will explain how to register for the test and the code to use for LSU. Also the stats on how many people have applied and been accepted for the previous years can be found on their website as well. Good luck!

    Side bar... they cashed my check. I hate that I'm doing this yet again. Trying not to get too worked up about anything and go with the flow. If I remember correctly they should be doing calls for interviews by the end of this week, early next week.

    Ahh they didn't cash mine yet I got a call from them a week ago because UNO messed up my transcript, so I had to bring them another one. Hopefully that didn't mess anything up with my app

    Hello FutureRNAsh,

    1. They will take the higher grade between the two. Say if you took Bio 1201 and got a C the first time and then retook it and made an A. They will take the A to calculate your GPA.

    2. They only look at your pre-reqs when calculating your GPA.

    3. You take the HESI test at a Prometric facility. The facility is not at LSUHSC. If you live in Baton Rouge, the facility I took the HESI exam was on Sherwood Forrest.

    4. The average age varies year to year. Whenever I applied, the age ranged from 18 to 40ish. Age really doesn't matter, especially in the nursing profession. The only thing the admission committee looks at if you are applying to the traditional bsn program: GPA, HESI score, interview, and personal statement.

    Hi all I applied for the Spring 2014 semester and I am getting nervous because I haven't yet gotten a call about an interview. Does anyone know how long it takes for them to call? I have a 3.9 GPA and I got a 92 on my HESI so I think I am in pretty good shape but i have heard nothing from LSUHSC. Has anyone who applied for Spring 2014 heard anything?

    Thanks,
    cvitaliano
