    Hey everyone,

    I'm also applying to NJCU for the Fall Fast Track program. I'm really nervous about getting in and have found this page to be really helpful so thank you! I took the HESI already and did pretty well. I was wondering how long everyones admission essay was....I saw 2 pages somewhere but does anyone know if you can go over that?

    I am soo nervous too about getting in... my essay was a little over 2 pages but it was too the point.

    I am online hesi page looking at my score report. i can see the averages for each section but how did u find the average for the entire hesi exam? did u just calculate it urself? So I did above average in english and math and about average on the sciences...in the critical thinking i got in the high 700s

    At the end of the test i saw my overall average but if u take the average of what is posted on the site u will have it.

    hey aspiring_nursing,
    yes, jersey city is closer to me, but the way i figured it is that i have to leave my job anyway, so i could do the commute down to wall and i'd rather start in may than september. really just eager to get the degree, i haven't heard any differences in the program between the 2 locations.

    dear loving care and everyone else that has taken HESI,

    It seems that online you can see the grades for hesi and also the percentage of everyone's average. it looks like I did above avarage for math and english and comperable to everyone else in the sciences, which was close to 70.. Did you guys get 70s in the sciences? or was this just hesi globally averaged. I am thinking and (hoping) those percentages are for individuals applying to the program njcu. So LOVING CARE, since u have been accepted would u share ur hesi scores for individual sections AND EVERYONE ELSE ACCEPTED TOO... u dont have to be exact if u dont want but at least an approximate. I am just worried i performed poorly in the sciences... thank u!

    Hi Everyone,

    I am new here, I am happy to be a part of this group. I find the info here has been very interesting and informative. I am also applying to NJCU ABSN for Fall. Took the HESI on Wed but had difficulties at the testing site which I believe affected my ability to perform at my best. I received my scores today which showed above average on all areas except BIO--totally Flunked it! My overall percentage was still above 80 so I called and spoke with Nursing Coordinator and was told that I have certainly met the requirement (80%) however to stay competitive they would suggest a retake because they do look at the individual scores. So I have decided to retake next week since I wont have to pay again. So I guess I will really study my BIO and at the same time make sure I maintain or improve the other areas. Good Luck to all of you!

    Aspiring, I live in CT so took it in Norwalk, CT. I would like to do the retake somewhere else though....maybe Whaite Plains NY or other in NY.

    All my grades were above average too aspiring....i got 80's and 90's in every section except bio which i got like a 78 or something but that was still above average. Im not sure what those averages are based on, I was thinking the same thing yesterday.
