    hi..go to bergen.edu and you will find the links for all the info you need...if not call admissions and they will send you an application. I thought the hesi book was of no help..the accuplacer tests online helped me a lot more..know your biology and basic math, you are not required to take the a&p part of the hesi test. I started in the fall ( for the day program ) and the cut off date was march 15 but there is a waiting list and after that you have to be in the top 90 out of all who take the test. there were 1,189 students who took the test and only 90 seats available. then you have level 2 and the number of students starts to drop. some didn't think it was for them, some failed 1 class and now have to wait another year before they can start again. I wish a lot of luck. It's a fun program and you get out only what you put in....if you need any help, just ask and there are people to help you in every way..especially on allnurses.com

    so you really don't have to take the a&p portion of the HESI?? i really thought it was math, english, a&p, physics and chem portions we had to take. i'm not exactly sure, but it would be great to find out. i'm currently finishing up my pre reqs and will be applying in the fall for the Spring 2011 evening program.

    when you get your letter on when to take your hesi's, it will say what subjects to take on your hesi...A&P is not 1 of them. When you go to take the hesi , it will give you a list of all topics and A&P is on it, so I asked the proctor and he said only take whats in the letter...I did and I'm in.....

    there are no practice hesi exams for students, only for teachers. There is a hesi book available in any library , DO NOT BUY IT..I don't think it was of any help.The 1 thing that helped me was taking the accuplacer tests online

    Yeah, i made the mistake of buying the HESI book. Haven't opened it since the first day i got it. Does anyone know how long does it take from the time you apply to the program to the time you have to take the test? I'm kind of torn between applying now and applying closer to the deadline (October 1st) because I'm not too sure on what to study and how long to study for.

    apply as soon as possible. I was on the waiting list to take the test for a while. it's been a while since i started the process, but you might have to jump thru some hoops, so get it done ASAP...you have to know basic math, common english & comprehension..and you MUST know biology..if you have the book..OPEN IT UP AND READ IT..get going

    Hi, i enjoyed reading your post. I am taking my hesi exam this coming Wednesday and I am either excited or nervous. I want to pass the exam because I know BCC is very competitive. Yes, in my letter from BCC, they told me A&P is not included in the exam. Should I still review on it? Is there a lot of Chemistry and Biology questions? Is the vocabulary similar to medical vocabulary or english dictionary words? The reading comprehension, are they related to medical issues. How about Metric conversions? Are you allowed to bring your own calculator or scrap paper? Please advice?
