    The entrance HESI is not difficult, but it all depends on how well you know your stuff. I have a very strong math and science background so I did well on it. I would suggest using the HESI book as a resource (http://www.us.elsevierhealth.com/pro...=9781416056355)

    I think as long as you meet all the requirements, they will consider you. But from what I have been reading, there are about 350 of you fighting for 50ish seats...so it is competitive to get in. I would say get your application submitted ASAP if you haven't, have ALL of your prereq's completed, and have a good HESI score. Besides that, there isn't much that any one of you can do. If this is the only school you are applying to, make sure you sell yourself. If you want to feel secure, I would apply to other programs as well..umdnj, ru, shu, nyu.

    Thanks you are so right.. I hope Next year I will be in the same position you are in right now giving other input. lol. How is the program? What is the clinical schedules like? Are you going to be graduating soon?

    I am glad to hear...are they letting people know if they got accepted or not? How was the HESI?

    The program is good....it is QUICK! As far as clinical, you can't choose your placement but they will try to accommodate you (in the sense, try to find the closest hospital to where you live etc etc)

    all i can say is if you get accepted to this program, stick to it... personally i chose this program because it was dirt cheap compared to other MORE prestigious nursing programs that I got accepted to... for a BSN, i must say that it doesn't matter where you go... if someone else thinks other, good for them.. but honestly it doesn't.... for those of you who plan on going for your MSN...then it matters

    Besides being cheap, its SMALL- 45ish students...and its only 12 months...all the other programs that i looked into were 15+ months...

    best of luck
