Bergen CC evening nursing 2013
- 0Oct 26, '12 by A_Rose83Just wondering if there is anyone on here applying?? I took my HESI today and my cumulative score was 87%. I pray that is high enough to get me accepted. Just have to wait till the end of November to find out. I would love to chat with some people that are in the same predicament as me!
- 0I'm trying to attend the Spring 2013 Evening Nursing program. I had just taken my Hesi test today in New York (the only one that I could book that gave me at least a few days to study since the other testing sites were completely booked!). I received an overall percentile of 93.67%. That vocab section was more of a pain that I had anticipated. It was my lowest grade at an 84%. Everything else was between 90%-100%.
I ended up having to take Math, Grammar, Reading and Comprehension, Vocabulary and General Knowledge, Chemistry, Personality Profile, and Learning Style.
I'm in county.
Also, I have a question for you guys. I've read that the overall percent that we get at the end of the test isn't our final grade? Will the "conversion score" mean anything? If so, what does it mean and what's its significance? Finally, is the "class average" of 79 the class average in BCC? Does that mean we're pretty well off as long as the class average doesn't raise above our score?
It's such a pain trying to find out info. Just getting to talk to the nursing dept heads is like trying to get an audience with the President of the US. Their secretary tries to answer everything for them. I have not once been able to talk to them directly, nor do they ever pick up the phone or respond to emails. I know they're busy but come on.
Hopefully we see each other come the beginning of next semester!
PS: A_Rose83, I noticed in another thread that you're also taking Intro to Chem this semester (FA2012). I'm taking it at 8AM with *******. I'm just wondering if you're in my class.Last edit by MrMan on Nov 10, '12 : Reason: ToS--do not post names of school personnel/professors
- 0Hello MrMan, That's a fantastic score! I thought the cumulative percentage was our final grade, I've never heard of the conversion grade. I do believe that the 79% is specifically for bergen students, and I think it's just for our class. Usually it's a combo of all students applying for the health professions(X-ray, dental, etc.) but since nursing is the only evening program, we would be the only ones testing now. Does that make sense?! I am taking intro to chem mon & wed nights with *****. I was reading previous posts from students applying for last years program and someone got in with an 84, so I am hoping that pattern continues, since I have a lower score than both of you! lolLast edit by JustBeachyNurse on Nov 10, '12 : Reason: Per Site ToS--do not post names of school personnell/professors
- 0Nice! I have Intro to Chem on Mon and Wed at 8AM, and lab Fri at 730AM. I walk into class like a zombie because it's so early. And thank you for the compliment about my score! Even though it's fairly high, you can never be too secure with what you have.
And wow, people really got in with a score of 84? That's really encouraging. I'm assuming that person was from BCC right? What's scary is that the testing doesn't end for at least another week and a half and that leaves so much more time for the people who are taking the test at a later date to study and kick us down the list! But I have high hopes.
And what you said about the conversion score does make sense. Also, how many seats are there available for the Evening Nursing program? I went to one of the meetings a couple months ago and if I remember correctly, it was around maybe 50 seats (my cousin who graduated a year before that says it's 80), I'm not entirely certain, however. Then there are those people who are retaking the courses again that failed it last semester taking up seats. Geez, it's so nerve-wracking having to wait for that letter!
EDIT: Where do you check the admission status in WebAdvisor?Last edit by MrMan on Nov 10, '12
- 0I went to an Information session and I believe they said 80 seats also. But they do have the students from the previous semesters who failed and retake, like you said.. I get so nervous thinking about this! A girl said she went to the most recent session and the director told her if you score over an 80 that you have a good chance of getting in. Waiting until the end of November is going to do me in! lol
