I'm taking the HESI at MCC on January 7th. Just curious about the scores (please post them) of everyone that has already taken it. Please let me know what I should focus studying on. Thanks!!!!!... Read More
- 0LauJen don't feel too discouraged. Right now, all the HESI / GPA scores are up in the air and there is no good indication as of yet how this year will come out because of the new requirements. Plus, there is a small percentage of the people who are in the running for this year on this website. So, again, who knows?
I am currently in the Nursing program at MCC. The acceptance letters were received around April 20th? I think last year. The wait is going to seem excrutiating! Good Luck to you!
- 0Jan 21, '10 by LauJenThank you for letting me know when they go out. Baker's should be here by February 1st, and I've got 23.27 points out of 24, so I think I have a decent chance there....if not, I'll re-apply for the fall, and have 24.27 points out of 24, so hopefully that would be good enough!
How do you like the nursing program at MCC?
- 0Quote from LauJenI am not sure on how Baker's program works, but it seems like the points you have out of a possible 24 are a good chance!Thank you for letting me know when they go out.

Macomb's program... I am defiantly loving. I am in my second set of classes and have just started being at a hospital for my clinical classes. Not going to sugar coat things, but the classes are intense. So far the first set of classes seem like a walk in the park compared to the second set I am on. But our instructors told us that these classes we are in now were the most intense in the program because of the body of knowledge they expect us to know and apply within the next 8 weeks. So far, the instructors and fellow students have been wonderful. The instructors I have, have tremendous backgrounds in nursing and they share with you everything they know. Can't complain much!
I am assuming that Baker's program will follow the same type of classes and clincials and work that goes with it!
- 0Jan 21, '10 by LauJenI'm hoping!! I've heard that the fall 2009 students have been crying like, every week and are beyond stressed out, which makes me worry, and wonder if we weren't properly prepared for this in our pre-reqs? But I think people also have this impression that getting into the program is harder than what actually goes on within it.... and I think it's the other way around! Getting into the program is one thing.... surviving it is another!
Are you into your clinicals yet? If so, where are you doing them?
- 0Jan 21, '10 by gemberlyI am in the 1700's at MCC (as Michelle knows!!). I am really happy it worked out that I am there. I was very disappointment to not get into Baker, but with Baker's program, there are less clinical rotations and less time on the floor. I need that time. I can do the book work fairly easily... but practical use of the information, is a little harder for me, not hard in the traditional sense, but in a I am scared out of my mind to make a mistake kind of way. LOL
I am liking the 1700's a bit easier. Although the clinicals are vastly different.
- 0Hi Gemberly!!!
JenLau I would agree with Gemberly.
I think that the pre-reqs were beneficial and did provide the proper framework I needed to do the book work. Like with Gemberly, it is the application of those interventions and assessments and the fear of hurting someone that stresses you out. Plus, Gem told me once that "The cure for the overachiever is Nursing School" LOL..
With that said... I can say yes we are stressed out, but I honestly think it is the overachiever in all of us in the program. During the first set of classes I thought that I had to know everything! That is not the case. The classes build on each other. If you are not successfull in A&P, Chemistry, Nutrition, etc, you will definatly have a hard time being a nurse or a nurse student. As a nurse you not only have to understand the right interventions, but the whole disease process and your patient as a holistic being. I am not from a medical background, so I definatly also need to time on the clincial floor. It is one thing being book smart, but as I have already seen the patient doesn't always follow what you have found in your book smart skills!
