    Cool, I took the HESI last week and did well. Got a call back today to come in to discuss financial aid. I guess that's a good sign? They said I was supposed to wait around after the test, but nobody informed me of that.

    Hi, I took the hesi last Friday (staten island) and I passed. I got a call on Monday from my admissions rep, all she told me was that I passed and now my file is going to be reviewed and i should get a letter in the mail next month. She never discussed any financials with me. I did ask her if i have a good shot of getting in and she said yes. Any thoughts? Thanks!!

    I took the hesi the first week of July, I was #15 on the waiting list for September. Unfortunately, I didn't get in for September but I do have my spot for January. My advisor told me the acceptance letters go out the end of October. To get a head start, go get a physical done at the doctors office, make sure your up to date on your immunizations. Your going to need $500 for a deposit, which the want ASAP. It's exciting! Are you going for day or night classes?

    HI! I'm from SI.
    I was thinking of applying to St Paul's School of Nursing if I don't get into the nursing program at CSI since it's soo competitive there. I have a pretty good GPA, but I'm pretty sure it's not good enough...
    How was the application process for St Paul's? Did you get in right away? If you were put on a wait list, did you still get a spot in the school? My dream is to become an RN and I'm not letting anything stop me! I've had a tough year at CSI, I really don't like the environment there and all. I think St. Paul's is the school for me because I want to become an RN the fastest way I can. I hate that I may be wasting my time with my pre-reqs here because I might not even get into the CSI nursing program.
    Also did anyone take out loans to pay for tuition? Because the tuition is pretty high...

    Julezrules,Your best bet is to apply now for September because I am pretty sure with classes starting in less than a month that they are all filled up. This school fills there seats quickly. RN program is 2 years, and there is no option to finish earlier. You can take summer classes, which will lesson your course load but that's it. The process is like this:Call, schedule when you can go in and take the pre-entrance exam (extremely easy), then they will tell you to schedule the Hesi, which I think came to $100 with the book. After taking that exam (you find out immediately), your admission advisor will call you and let you know they are sending out the application package. It is background check, medical forms, drug test. They will tell you to call immediately to leave a $500 deposit to hold your seat. After submitting all paperwork, they send your paperwork to the review board. Once your officially accepted you will go in and meet with financial aid. I applied in July, I was out on waiting list for September, but I am starting January. Even though I submitted everything in July, my official acceptance letter did not come until the end of October. Good luck with everything!

    I got in for fall 2013. This school should not be bad. I work at a hospital in Mineola, NY (yes, the only hospital in mineola), and I know nurses who went to this school. All of them obviously turned out more than alright, they have jobs. Some of them are now charge nurses or assistant nurse managers or they teach clinicals in other schools like Molloy College or Adelphi University after getting their bsn and master's degree. I found out about this school from them. They said that it will not be easy because of the work load, but it is doable, they are the living proofs. They said not to take it lightly because it is hard just like other nursing programs offered by other schools. I have co-workers who are also in nursing programs in other schools/universities and it is also a struggle for them. They tell me stories of their classmates withdrawing classes/dropping out because of failed exams. They take off from work and study for days just for one test. Whatever school you go to if it is the nursing program you are in then it will be hard, that is already given. Most of my co-workers are in school for nursing and they do not have a social life. You cannot hang out every weekends, you need to constantly be reading. I would see them bring their books or notes and they read it on their breaks. The program is not a joke, if you do not put time to study then expect to fail.
