I passed the HESI/Entrance exam!!!!!!!!

  1. Hi everyone. I took the entrance exam for the LPN course- at the school that I am applying at they make you take the HESI. You had to get a 70% on each part to pass. I got a 78% on Math (this is my weakest subject), 92% on Grammar, 90% on Vocabulary and an 82.98% on the Reading section. They gave me a conditional acceptance letter today. I have to get a background check, CPR health card, my high school transcript and a physical. You also need four recommendation letters. I have two personal but need to work on two professional ones. I can get one from my current boss and an ex co-worker. It will be such of a relief when I get everything together. I am very excited to enter the nursing program! It has been a happy day for me!

    Congratulations!!!

    This is a major accomplishment, since not everyone has been fortunate enough to do well on the HESI. Congratulations are definitely in order for you!

    Good job! It feels great doesn't it? I passed my HESI last month and passed with an over all score of 90.9% I was pumped.

    Thanks for your support! My overall score was almost an 86%. I was pleased seeing as I have been out of school for 12 years lol! I have some college credit hours but they are back from 97/98. I am so relieved to have the test out of the way. It was really weighing on me .

    Congratulations!

    I have to take the pre-entrance exam soon and I'm really nervous. When do you start school?

    I start on December 3rd. I still have to get all of my ducks in a row but I am working on it. My physical is scheduled for October 15th. I am excited but nervous at the same time. I know that it will take a lot of devotion and commitment to get through the program. I have a six year old boy and a two year old little girl. I have support though and should be fine! I plan on going through to the RN program once I am finished with the LPN one. You have to take the NCLEX exam and another entrance exam for the RN but I will take it one step at a time. Take care.
