Macomb Community College - 2012 HESI - page 2

Well, another year means another time for more score updates. I am getting ready to take my HESI in a couple weeks to apply for the 2012 Nursing Program and I must say I am really beginning to get... Read More

    They added the Intro to Nursing course so that people would have a better idea of what kind of career nursing really is, before spending all the time and money of starting the program. Believe it or not, prior to adding the course, there were people that got through all the pre-reqs, got into the program, started their courses, only to *then* realize that they are going to have to actually physically touch people, help clean up after them when they are incontinent, etc... Macomb really has done a number of people a favor by adding that course.

    I'm in favor of programs changing/evolving as often as necessary to keep things competitive so that only the people that have the strongest desire to be a nurse and have the brains to do it well, will be admitted.
    I'm not in favor of it at all. It decreases your options when you're applying to RN schools; and I am certainly not going to take an additional class for a particular college that may or may not even accept me. It's just more time and more money

    Hi Jeberger.. When are you taking the HESI?

    here's what I got for ya

    ME:::
    August 2011 start
    GPA: 4.0
    HESI: 94
    Rank: tied for 8th.

    All I used to review for the HESI was the Evolve HESI book, and I thought it was plenty. However, I had finished A&P just 2 weeks before the exam, and am kind of a math rockstar.

    Although the outcome couldn't have been any better, my worst enemy was my nerves! I'm sure I could have scored another point or two if I would have stayed a little more chill during the exam. Try not to let that happen to you!! They give you plenty of time to take the exam. IMO, way more than needed. Take your time. Take breaks as allowed. You'll be fine. 3.925 GPA is a great place to be going into the HESI. I have no doubt you'll make it in.
    That is great! I take it the 10th! It has been a year since a and p, but I had micro path in the winter. I am just curious do you think it is more beneficial to review the body systems as a whole or to review like exam notes? I am trying to do the notes and I feel like it might be too in depth, because I have done the HESI practice book. Any minor hint would be greatly appreciated. I am so very excited but so nervous Lol. Trying to make sure my nerves don't get the best of me.

    Find a balance between reviewing/studying as in depth as you can, without sacrificing your sanity. Finding that balance will be your key to nursing school success.

    For me, I just knew I wanted to become a nurse. I did my research and found that Macomb was the best way for me to do that. It's a competitive, accredited, well-respected, low-cost program that doesn't put people on waiting lists. I couldn't have asked for a better program to fit my needs. I truly hope you are able to find the program that fits yours.

    Well I tool mine today I will be applying with a 93.6 on the HESI and 3.92 (assuming finals go good this week.) I will break it down better when I have the papers in front of me. I couldn't be happier though! Good luck!

    Okay so here is the update, I can't figure out how to edit my previous post.

    My Score: 93.6
    Reading: 98
    Grammar: 90
    Vocabulary: 92
    AnP: 92
    Math: 96

    Class Average was an 84.

    To those of you getting ready to take it, and if you are as crazy as I am, take a breather. It really isn't as bad as you will think it to be. The math was dead on, know conversions and household measurements. English, the questions in the book weren't to far off from what you will see as far as type of problems. The vocab is hit or miss on if you know the terms so I would say just try using extended vocabulary in everyday context. Reading was easy all you have to do is answer the question being asked, the paragraph will stay above the question so when in doubt refer back to the paragraphs. And my biggest worry was AnP; well all I can say is go through almost everything. The questions were not super in-depth or anything ridiculous. Anyway best of luck.

    Does anyone know how to check their placement for program? Maybe like a seat or anything like that? Thanks.

    Good job

    If everything is the same as last year, you wont know anything really until they send out acceptance letters.

    The deadline for applications isn't until Feb 15, then it takes up to 3 months for the selective admissions dept to do the rankings. Then they can send out acceptance letters.

    They sent ours out around mid-April. Once we had our letters, we could take the letter into the admissions office and they would give you your rank there, if you want it.

    According to last year, the last five that got in had a Hesi score of 83.8 and a GPA of 3.89..
    however this year the student MUST have the intro to nursing done before they can apply.
    further more each person I spoke with that took the Hesi already
    has said that barely any people showed up to take the Hesi exam.
    only about 400 registered for the exam I heard.. I know in my section we had only 10 students, plus they
    even cancelled a section.. hopefully this year will be easier to get in then last year..

    There were maybe 10 people in my Hesi group as well.

    If you think about it, only a certain # of sections of Intro to Nursing courses were offered which could be completed in time for the Feb. 2015 deadline, so pretty much only the people who were able to get into that class or took it before can apply this round.

    I'm hoping that it will work out to my advantage this admissions round.

    Hi Everyone,

    I am reapplying to MCC's program this year as well as a few other programs. I retook the Hesi and scored a 91. I am not sure about my GPA yet, everything depends on how finals goes. As for finding your HESI section average that is available on the Evolve website. It doesn't mean much though, all that matters is your place in the rank. I took my final today in HHSC and there was a student who was accepted into the program for March who did not pass the class. Was anyone else's HHSC course somewhat challenging? I definitely think there will be less students ranked this year due to the addition of that course. Good Luck Everyone!

    I take my hhsc final tonight. I did think there was a lot more info in the class than I anticipated. My professor was very good at explaining it all though. Also Orsa there were only like ten in my hesi group also. I wonder if other sections were fuller? I am excited and nervous to see where I fall when they rank students.
