Just an update to any others looking for Hocking info:
What I've learned so far is there is a wait list of about 18 months for both LPN and RN programs. 75% on all sections of the HESI gets you in the RN program. Otherwise, you are placed on the LPN track. The HESI must be taken during the first semester pre-clinical courses. Once all pre-clinical work is completed, you are placed on the waiting list. My advice, if you are willing to make the drive, would be to apply at Columbus State Community College or work on their prerequisites. They will transfer to Hocking if your heart is set on that school, but it will give you an additional option. Also, CSCC requires CHEM, which will be necessary if you want to apply to more schools and/or get your BSN. Hocking does not require CHEM. There is also a program at Washington State Community College in Marietta where you are either in or out. They admit in the fall. Their LPN program admits in the summer and fall. The summer is a one year program, and the fall start is a two-year part time program. It is first come, first served rolling admission for LPN. ADN program is selective admission. Just some helpful FYI for those looking at options other than Hocking.
