Macomb Community College - 2012 HESI

  1. 0 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 addition of HHSC-1040 (right before I was apply ) I am just curious how everyone did, and what was it like this year? I have no clue what to expect and I have been searching forever. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am really not worried about the Math or Grammar sections. I'm more worried about the Vocabulary, Reading, and A&P section that they added. Any advice would be great. I already have the Evolve HESI book that I have been reviewing from for the past couple of months. I'm still just really nervous.

    I don't have a HESI score yet, but my GPA to apply for the program is: 3.925.

    Again, any advice would be grand!

    My best advice to you is this: don't stress about this test. You have a great gpa so you're prepared. Review the HESI book front to back -- make sure you know the math and ROS for the anatomy portion. (The review will come in handy anyway when you start nursing school.) I reviewed for about a week before I took the test and got a 94 and you can, too! Start with a section that you're strong in so that you get off to a good start. Most importantly, believe in yourself!

    Review the Evolve study guide, everything you need is in that book. I was freaking out prior to taking the test because I was afraid there wasn't enough review in that book, there is. If you know that stuff you will do great. Good luck, and take your time you get 4 hours.

    Hi I was looking through for HESI advice, by ROS what do you mean? I keep going through the study guide, but am wondering if I should be studying other materials as well. I noticed the practive exams in the book have a lot of conversions did the real one?

    To SU85: ROS means review of systems. Know your systems for the A&P portion of the HESI exam. If you start with A&P and do well on it, it's a huge boost for the rest of the exam. My unsolicited advice to anyone about to take the HESI is this: everyone I know regrets doing the reading comprehension last. You're tired, you're hungry and the last thing you want to do is read and answer questions. You may want to do this first or even in the middle. And, yes, there are lots of conversions. Know your metric, apothecary and household conversions and you'll do great! Good luck!!!

    Thanks so much for the heads up and the advice. I still have like 9 days too, so I will spend it by just reviewing body systems and measurements. Good thing HHSC requires you to know those as well. Btw Good Luck Su85

    Why did Maccomb add on the additional course? I wanted to apply but now I can't..they're making it harder and harder on pre nursing students to try to get into more than one school

    I think they added another course to try and cut down on the number of applicants. And just another thing to discourage people from going that route. Lol

    Well, they certainly lost me I guess the heatlh profession doesn't really needed nurses that much because a lot of schools have added on additional courses that can only be taken at their college..which narrows the options I have down quite a bit

    Unfortunately it is quit the opposite. The demand for nurses are extremely high, the problem is not enough nursing educators out there for the amount of people that are going into nursing. It's all about getting the people who really know what they want and what they are after.

    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.

    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.
