Can I get into nursing school with one low hesi subtext?

  1. Wondering if there's a college out there that I can get into for nursing with one low subtest on the hesi? my scores are

    vocab: 88%
    grammar: 82%
    reading comp: 76%
    math:66%

    i know for most colleges you need a 75% in each subtest to be concerned... but is there a college with maybe a lower standard for this testing? I have a decent gpa (3.7) and I have A's and B's with the exception of microbiology in my prerequisites. I currently go to fscj and applied for their nursing program just don't know if I'll get in due to the 66% in math on the hesi... even though I got an A in my math class.. any advice? I would greatly appreciate it!

    You need to check with the school(s) you're actually interested in attending. Mine didn't require a HESI entrance exam, at all ...only an exit exam.

    I have.. most required that 75% in each subtest unfortunately:/ and that was the second time I took the test this year. If you don't mind me asking where did you go for nursing??

    I went to school in Texas. It would make more sense for you to branch out gradually from your own location, though.

    True, I have family in Texas though. What kind of college was it?

    You may have a since, I've witnessed many schools ask for an overall score and normally a specific score in reading. Are you able to take the test again for the next cycle?
