    The math. I used the study guide ed. 4 just to refresh and it was exactly like the test. I scored a 89 in the math section. Addition, subtraction, ratios and fractions. Lots of fractions so I focused heavy on those and the ruses of fraction. Reading comp. It was simple, if you can read a paragraph and understand what it's saying anD answer questions on what you read you'll be fine. I didn't even study this section and I got a 90 in it. Grammar, verbs, noins, pro-nouns, sentence structure, again, it's all in the study guide. I took additional quizzes to help with it and also read them aloud to see if they made any sense ! 89 there. A&P, I used the study guide again as well as a few quizlet tools and I passed it as well. I could of put more effort In to but I was so worried about biology (which I failed) I neglected the rest but still did fairly well! I hope this helps. Oh and because I'm not much of a book learner , I went to pintrest and looked up hesi- and whichever subject you are having the most issue with. I found diagramsome and illustrations much more help find for myself ! Again good luck to you !!

    I need Help!! Lol I'm bugging all the way out, I was conditionally accepted into a lon-rn program on the grounds that I pass my biology hesi this time.. every other subject is a 83 or above for me but biology is a 64 (roughly 3 questions off). So my question, how'd you do on that subject ? What other resources did you use ? I'm using hesi exam book, youtube, matrix, quiz let. ! I know exactly where I'm weak at . Function and use of microscope(steps), cell structure flagellum, respiration (assuming cellular), Kerbs cycle, exocytosis, competitive inhibitors!! I know there were some thingd I second guessed myself on but any help would be totally loved and appreciateD

    Pull the renewal app offline, fill it out, pay the 110 and send it to them priority mall. If you cafe are really inpatient like me. Take it up to the bored of nursing and get finger printed there as well so they get it instantly!

    First off congrats on the job I screamed when I got mine! ! I float and do ltc and also sub acute I love the sub acute side because I'm learning! But I have 22 patients and I wanna cry!! 5 g-tubes, 8 wounds, 10 diabetics that are on finger sticks before every meal, everybody on blood pressure meds and poly pharmacy! I'm a new grad (sept 2013) started oct2013 and I'm still somewhat overwhelmed! Some days more then others. . Make sure to make nice with your CNAs, they have your back like nobody else will. I've been told over and over "if you can do this, you can do anything". And I feel like superwoman! !
