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 nervous! Thanks to their recent... Read More

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

    The into to nursing class was a lot more than I expected too. Was not happy about the grading scale when I found out an A was 96%I'm applying this year with a 3.72 GPA. I have an 87% on the hesi from last year, retaking it this week...

    Just an FYI for you all, the grading scale in the actual nursing program is pretty tough. I was an August start and all the lecture classes so far have used this grading scale:

    A 94-100%
    A- 92-93%
    B+ 90-91%
    B 86-89%
    B- 84-85%
    C+ 82-84%
    C 78-81%

    Anything below 78% is considered a failing score. You must have a C or better to pass and move forward with your class.

    3.7 and a 90
    So far my class average is showing as an 86 but I am sure people are still taking it, if not I am still content with my 90, and I do not care when I start I just want to get in!

    Also, there are multiple sessions each day so for all those thinking that only ten people are showing up it is because they have them separated to different classrooms
