- May 10, '12 by mgsmgsmgsKristenNola--I'd say you definitely have a great shot at getting in! Make sure to write a very strong written statement and do awesome in your interview! GPA isn't the entire factor in getting in! And plus, you have above the minimum requirements, so there is no doubt in my mind that you will get in!
- May 10, '12 by amber92292KristenNola, I think you should be fine! my pre-req GPA was a 3.6 and my HESI score was an 86! Good luck
- May 14, '12 by jord_marieCongrats to all the new Soph 1's for Fall of 2012! Like someone said before, buckle up and get ready for Physiology (...and pretty much everything else, especially Pharmacology). That class nearly killed me haha. Come August, the reality of nursing school will set in very, very fast. Good luck!
- May 14, '12 by lsutigermmmDo any students know what we do at the advising session? Anyone that's taken physiology, do you think it would be a good idea to buy the textbook and start reading over the summer?
- May 17, '12 by stellanoellaCan anyone private message me if they currently use LSU's health insurance and/or planning to get it. I have made several inquires by phone and have read the website a few times and I am still stumped. I am wondering if I am to get insurance through school and have it paid for by my student loans, is it possible to sign up NOW, and use it to pay for the physical, immunizations, and such? That would be much cheaper. Just trying to figure out how much each visit would cost is making my head spin. Thanks!!
- May 17, '12 by stellanoellaNever mind about the about post. There will be an open enrollment kind of thing around July 1st.
- May 18, '12 by perkinsflowerlsutigermmm, yes. it is a very good idea to get the book and start reading over the summer. Also, always look at the questions in the back of the chapter - a lot of clicker questions come from there. Find some good sources for MCQs, because those are also a good way to figure out whether or not you really understand the material.
As far as getting your titers cheap, there's a place on Canal Boulevard, I think it's called Innovative Risk Management. It's in the Liberty Bank building. If you tell them you are getting titers done for nursing school, it's $100 for four titers. My job paid for my TB test and my Hep B vaccine (PM me if you want the scoop on that).
- May 29, '12 by BrennManWhat is the name/author of the Physio book?
On an unrelated topic, what is the word on the housing options. Dorm vs apartment? Cleanliness, newness, etc.
- May 31, '12 by amber92292BrennMan, it's Vander's Human Physiology: The Mechanisms of Body Function, Twelfth Edition
I got the book from a friend and she also gave me Board Review Series Physiology, Fifth Edition by Linda S. Costanzo (not sure if this one is required or just recommended)
