  1. 0 Hello, I Just Got out of high school But i know that i really want to do nursing, I see that you have to take the HESI test which i had planed to take at rets but i recently was intoduced to this school I see on the nursing guide they need your high school diploma and my gpa was not all that great only because my mother got sick and i really was the only one taking care of here while in high school so do they have a gpa requirement and do you offically get into the school after you pass the HESI test? Am really worried if not i will prob have to stick with rets

    Erased.

    What's the point? Communicating in a professional manner is no longer a necessity. Spelling, punctuation, and sentence structure are for squares.

    People care because it is difficult to read posts that are just one giant run on sentence.

    To answer your question, the best way to find out information on any school's admissions requirements is to call the school directly. That being said, if a school is just asking for a copy of your diploma and not your transcript, they probably just want verification that you have graduated high school. Your diploma does not have your GPA stamped on it.

    Do you need a cookie? You seem on edge. How about a margarita?

    Please go to Hondros, I just finished at Rets (now Fortis) and they surprised us w/ the hesi in the middle of finals with the review after it!!!!!!! A bunch of us failed either the Hesi or the exams. There was no way to pass both for most of us. As long as you pass their entrance exam they wont care what your gpa was in high school!

    I got accepted at hondros recently like a week ago for the october class, and so far everything seems to be going smoothly. I didnt really have the best gpa in high school it was close to a 2.1 cuz i had alot of family issues, but i did my research and finally found hondros. As i've heard, its a candidate for the NLNAC accreditation, which is pretty sweet cuz i kno alot of community colleges and other schools are not. Hondros, from the way it seems keeps improving in the small area's that they used to lack in. I havnt attended a information session, if anyone has can you give me some more info on the school. Also if someone is in their RN program at hondros, or in their lpn currently, can you let me know how it is? thankk you!!

    I had a girl friend do her lpn there and now she is in the rn program there. At least they didnt give her the hesi exam in the week of finals like rets did us. I failed ob trying to make sure i passed the hesi, i am going to check into hopefully doing the last term there! I pray they will let me do this! Good luck to you!!!

    I'm a Hondros student.

    Look, this is just my opinion. But Rets/Bohecker/Fortis lost their accreditation last year and is currently on probation. The students of theirs Ive met in clinical were rude, and they push students to attend medical assisting before nursing, which is just a ploy to get more money.

    I won't lie - Hondros is hard - but they have an NCLEX pass rate of 91%, which is the best in the area by far. By the time I graduated from LPN, nearly 40% of the people who started with me had been held back a term for failing a class. If you can't put in the time to learn the material from the ground up, Hondros isn't a good fit for you. The grading scale is rough - 93 percent is an A, 85 percent is a B, less than 78 percent is failing.

    As for the HESI, you are accepted if your scores are good enough (generally, above 75%). They didn't ask for my GPA from high school, only that I had proof of graduation. You get an interview with admissions, so just explain your situation and tell them how passionate you are about being a nurse. Go get 'em!
