Hey Future RN's!! :-)
I'll be applying to the program next spring. I must say I can't wait. I have 2 prereqs left to take (A&P II and Microbiology) and also need to take the HESI...
I know these two classes are tough, however, I'm considering taking both this Summer and HESI in the fall or winter. Has anyone taken these two together?
Thank you for any feedback ;-)

Welcome to AN! I'm sure you will get lots of feedback concerning programs, but I wanted to offer this bit of advice: please, PLEASE change your avatar. People have often been faced with disciplinary measures (up to and including termination from school programs and employment) because of remarks placed on message boards such as this. Details such as where you go to school, what your pre-nursing occupation is, etc can be fodder for a nut to find you, too. It is STRONGLY suggested that you keep your face and name, etc as anonymous as possible....you just never know when a co-worker, teacher, nurse manager, or whatever will find something objectionable enough in something you've posted to take it up the chain of command....and leave you very unhappy.
That said, I wish you the best in your pursuit of a nursing degree

I took Micro and A & P II in the same semester and got an A in both, however, I do caution you that it is a lot of work and do not recommend it if you do not have ample time to dedicate to both classes, as it is very important to receive an A in those classes in order to get into the nursing program. It is doable though

What was your gPA? I'm nervous I have a 3.5 I'm afraid that it is to low

I had a 4.0 when I applied, but you minght be ok with a 3.5. they base your acceptance on a 100 pt system. You can get extra points by having a job in the healthcare field or by taking all of your pre reqs at WCCCD. It's competitive and every point counts do as much as you can to earn extra points

Hey everyone! I haven't been on in awhile, just touching bases...I took the HESI and failed. I was discouraged and no longer motivated. I'm having my momentum back and plan to re take it in April or May.
How are you guys?!
