Can the Hesi A2
test vary by school, or is the math section that one student takes the same that every other student at every school takes different?
I took CHEM 113. I actually enjoyed the class as much as you can enjoy a class. I did very well in it. I took in on campus in the evening and received an A. I don't think I could have done that well without my professor to explain things so kudos to you.
Don't worry about anatomy. I didn't have any troubles with it. However, the lab book CSCC gives you BLOWS. I bought the spiral bound anatomy book that OSU students in ANAT 200 use and it is the reason I did so well in that class. The pictures and diagrams make SO much more sense.
The cadavers also suck and the lab practicals move very fast. You'll be fine in the rest of the lab but don't let yourself stress out over the cadavers. Each station has 3 things to identify and you only have a minute. Skip the ones you don't know right away and answer the ones you do know. They give you 5 minutes at the end to go back and relook at things you were unsure about.
Also, they give you a wordbank but it isn't much use. They expect you to identify the item, find it on the 3 page wordbank, look at what letter is next to it, and then write that letter on your answer sheet (scantron) three times in a minute. You REALLY have to know your stuff. I started ignoring the scantron and just finding the item on the wordbank and writing #32 (or whatever it was) next to it. At the 3 break stations I would then copy that information over onto the scantron because it gave me more time at the identifying stations.
The only other nursing prerequisite I have left is NURC 102. I tried to get out of it but they won't let me. I work as a MST at Mt Carmel so I do foleys (in and out), phlebotomy, wound dressing changes, apply all ortho devices, help with ortho treatments, cast, etc. And I obviously got really good at sterile technique. Oh well - at least it will be an easy A! NURC 101 was a joke. YAWN. I sat in the back and studied for other courses and still got a 100% in the class. Then I got my first job in the hospital and realized nursing homes may do it like the class taught, but hospital life doesn't relate at all.
Any idea why CSCC makes you get really good at the nursing home basics plus nursing basics before starting if they still make you do your first rotation in a nursing home?! Seems like they should start out on a med/surg floor. I know most other nursing schools don't require STNA stuff beforehand and they still skip the nursing home clinical.
I can apply for the traditional track in July. I can apply for online in Sept/Oct. Both are for the same start date. Can I apply for them both? If I get rejected to the online then just keep my traditional track admission? I'd rather do online, but at least I'd only have nursing classes by the time I started to being in class wouldn't be terrible.
Advisors told me you cannot register for the online classes when you are in traditional. Is that only the nursing classes? I don't have transfer credit for COMM 200/202. Will I be able to take that online? Oh and I don't have credit for any SSCI coursework (despite having 170 semester hours and a bachelors degree). For the traditional program, those aren't waived and I'd much rather take them online...
