    I just took my Hesi with a total score of 81.6 and CT 880. I made a C in A&P1 and a A in English I'm not sure how to calculate my points but I think I may be in the 6 range. I'm very nervous because I don't think that will be good enough to get in the program or if they even accept scores in the 6 range. I want to apply to lonestar Montgomery and North Harris. Does anyone know if my scores will be good enough?

    I believe you have around a 6.1 if I calculated it correctly. Unfortunately from what I've read on here, I don't think you'd be accepted into the nursing program with that score. My suggestion is to take A&P 2 and try to shoot for an A. If you get your A, then you'll be around a 7.2 which you will have a good chance of being accepted into the ADN or LVN programs.

    agreed accion- the cut off was 7.4 something last round for ADN I believe.

    Me? yes and no. I was conditionally accepted but I was not able to finish my check list before the deadline so my spot was forfeited.

    Do anyone knows if the Critical Thinking sections on the test helps with the ranking points?

    Yes, Express has 2 locations, Spring and Conroe. I went there for the fast track Hep B back in feb. And you're right, you get #1, one week later you get #2 and then I believe 2 weeks later, the last shot. I did ask if it was basically redoing the series and I believe it was. LOL. I hope my body responds this time! I go for my third on 9/11. You may want to email/call and confirm that they'd want you to redo the series. For this round of shots, I've been going to Walgreens only. When I applied in person, I made an appt with my advisor and we applied together, the director saw my negative titers and the first recorded shot of this round and said that was fine.
    How long did it take for you to get your titer after your last shot?

    It does not factor into your score, but it does help break a tie - I believe!

    From what the clinic in Spring told me, you can get your Titer again 4-6 weeks after your final Hep B shot.

    When I asked an adviser at North Harris Nursing Department, she said that as long as you got the initial Titer(even if it show you're not immune), the original 3 Hep B shot record(assuming this isn't the first time you are getting Hep B vaccination), and the first shot of the current series, you can use these three documents to submit the application. This info also shows on the school website in the requirement section.

    I am trying to retake Anatomy and Physiology both 1 & 2 at Lone Star (any campus) to get A's in both classes. Can anyone recommend professors that were easy and had the class structured well? Thanks so much!!
