I used the Evolve study guide ( the Admission Assesment) 3rd edition..also I used the GED math book ( trust me it's worth the money). Well the science portion of the Hesi guide leaves something to be desired..so I would study off of your class notes..
Great story and thanks for sharing it with us!
.....They always STINK when tjey come back in. It's just plain nasty.
LOL, discrimination applies to sex, race, etc. ie: PROTECTED class. CHOOSING to smoke doesn't give someone that
It's people like you, who share experiences like this, that made me want to become a nurse to begin with.....and I thank you. I've bookmarked this so I can share it with my wife and family, but more importantly, so I can go back and read this again when I need it.
Thanks for the heads up!
I have never heard of nursing students getting experience with a veterinarian, but it makes sense to me now that you brought it up. You will be able to do IVs, draw blood, give medications, bathe animals, etc. That experience should give you a level of confidence most of us lack when starting clinicals. I think you should go for it! It won't hurt and can only help you!
I just got a call from my friends wife who is a veterinarian. She just found out I was a nursing student and said that at any given time at her practice, 1/3 to 1/2 of her tech staff are nursing students who are trying to build a basic skill set before they start their clinicals. Has anyone else done this or know of anyone else who's gained some level of experience working as a vet tech?
My degree is in Communications. I had worked my way from a cubicle to an office (no windows, white walls). I just got to a point where I was miserable going to work and sitting all day, not really benefiting anyone. As I got older, I wanted to do something with more meaning and more action. I am halfway through pre-reqs and will start nursing school summer 2013. It is an accelerated program so on top of not working, I will incur quite a bit of debt. I go back and forth every day on whether this is a good decision. I feel very guilty about incurring this debt when I already have a degree and I should be saving for my kid's college, not mine.
I believe a score of 85% with an A will put you in a decent position for acceptance. Of course, it will all depend on the applicant pool that you apply with.
I read through (but did not study) the HESI study guide and scored very well on the test. I would gauge how much you need to study by how well you remember each of the subject matter as you go through them. I think it is wise to take the test as early as possible so you can repeat it as needed.
Check back in with your scores when you get them!
Good for you! Congratulations and good luck!
As a New Grad RN, I find it incredibly encouraging that you talked about your mistake. Talking about mistakes isn't just a learning experience for you, but I'm finding it really educational for myself. So thank you for your honesty!
Good for you! Congratulations!
A very big congratulations to you! Every single time I read a "passing" post, it gives me such an overwhelming sense of pride and can't wait until I can post my own. Thanks for sharing your experience and study resources!
I took my HESI for a college in FL, however, I was told you need to score above 80% to secure a spot. The areas are: math, grammar, reading, critical thinking, A & P, and vocab. Some schools also test on chemistry ( mine did not). I would focus on all of these subjects
