    Hey guys! I am currently looking to apply to apply for the AAS program and I am scheduled for an info session for 2018. I wanted to apply because regardless of being so competitive, the program still seems doable. With most CUNY nursing programs I feel like I'm jumping through a bunch of hoops, which is why I like this program because I feel it is more straightforward. My only concern is the cost. My goal is to receive my BSN, but I first have to do the AAS program because I'm not a nurse, and this would also be my first degree. But with doing this program I would be $90,000 or more in debt. Does anyone have any tips or advice, it would be helpful thank you. (I'm currently taking pre-requisites at BMCC)

    Hi! I want to enroll ASS program at PSON . What should i do? I took my pre-reqs at QCC and i have an overall 3.53. What do you think about my GPA? I know its very compitive to get in the program, but still i hope i can make it. Can you give me any advice how can i prepare for HESI A2 exam?

    @Kulsuma123 you should apply through nursingcas because its a long process the deadline is April 1 I'm schedule to take the HESI exam by the end of this month I hope I get in. As far as the hesi you need to focus on reading compreshension, math and biology. you should buy the hesi admission assessment book. The school takes everything into consideration not just your GPA and hesi score your entire portfolio.

    Hi! I'm applying for Fall too and the NursingCAS app is super long, but I didn't see it listed anywhere that we are required to take the HESI exam? I probably just missed it, but do you recall whee you saw that it's required? have to take it anyway for another school application, but had no idea PSON required it as well.

    @tinyspoons you can go to the program material section on the nursing cas where it states that you must take the HESI and score 80 reading comprehension, math and biology, Or you can just go to the school website it also it stated there. They look at everything not just the hesi score and gpa. The nursingcas is very long it's because they ask for a lot it best to start on it early than later you have until April 1 to apply.

    Thanks! I️ just looked through it and realized it it's a requirement for the AAS degree only it seems. I'm applying for the BS program so don't think I️ need to submit my HESI scores. Are you going to the Feb. 15th info session? I'll be there, I️ feel like I️ have a million questions

    @tinyspoons I already went to the one back in October of last year. They will basically breakdown the program from AAS program to Accelerated program and Bsn program . They will take you on a tour and show you around. I already submitted my application I'm just waiting to take the hesi by the end of this month. I hope I get accepted to AAS program.

    Hey @tinyspoons! I have been wondering the same thing - whether they require this HESI/Math requirement for the ABSN program. On the website under "ABSN Admissions" I see "Math for Medications" as a requirement... I wonder what course would fulfill this.

    Does anyone know who I would be able to confirm this with or a contact email address?

    @sancha74 which program did you apply to the accelerated or the BSN I don't think you have to take the HESI for the BSN or the accelerated program just the AAS program . You can contact Ms Gallio

    I'm going to ask that when I get to the info session. I saw someone earlier on this thread mentioned Cayuga College's math for medications course, I'll ask if they recommend anywhere else, too. I️'m waiting to see if I️ get in before I️ sign up for anything, though, because that's the only school that requires that course. I'll double check with them about the HESI too but I️ think @louismimi is right, it's only for the AAS.
