Austin Community College - ACC - Spring '12 Hopefuls - page 2

    Thanks annbananz!I actually have updated information about the HESI content via an email from the nursing office. Below is a copy of the email I received in regards to the HESI changes. Also, you will be fine taking those classes at once. Just stay focused, organized, and motivated. Dear Student, There have been some changes in the testing timeframe for the HESI beginning in January. The sections have been revised to only encompass what is required for the ACC program therefore the time has also been adjusted. The time will be 3 hours to complete the test as of 1/14/11.This is still sufficient time to complete the test. Sincerely, ACC Nursing

    Hey guys! I'm not quite as far along as you guys.......I'll be doing micro this semester and was wondering if any of you have had Rodney Rohde? I was wondering what I could expect.

    Thanks and GOOD LUCK to you all!!!

    I am in my last semester of pre-req courses so does anyone know when I should take the HESI? Also, do I go ahead and get my immunizations taken care of? I am just confussed on what time frame everything has to fall into. Thanks!

    the way i view the nursing application process is like waiting in line for checkout at a grocery store. we'll all get our chance if we stay patient. lol. meaning it's not a matter of if you will get in, but more a matter of when you will start the program. has anyone already taken the hesi? i know they had an early testing date of november for fall 2011 applicants.
    [font=franklin gothic medium]i totally agree with your logic. i used to panic when i realized how long it would take me to finally be an rn, and worried so much about when i'd get in. i've lived with the 'rents now for almost a year after i had a change of heart about what i wanted to do with my life, and i wanted so badly to be able to afford even a crappy little apartment, and i dreamed of my future rn salary... but i just got my cna (certified nurse aide) training finished and will be able to support myself soon, and get my own place! hooray! now i realize it really isn't a race, and one really shouldn't be too worried if they don't get in the first time they apply. the fact that everyone gets in eventually is pretty cool! (why is this little dude smoking? hah)

    love , claire

    [font=franklin gothic medium]hey lacy!

    if you want to see what your prof is like, go to
    http://www.ratemyprofessor.com.
    [font=franklin gothic medium]enter your professor's last name, and find them from the list! i also like to read through all the reviews and take notes on how the person grades, how they lecture, attendance policy, etc.

    [font=franklin gothic medium]i always plan my class schedule based on this website, and i've had nothing but really awesome profs

    [font=franklin gothic medium]hey there, it's recommended you start the process of getting your immunizations 6 months before you plan on applying, and you can take the hesi within the last six weeks of the semester, i believe.

    You can take the HESI 6 weeks before the semester ends. Also, you need to go ahead and start your immunization NOW. Hep B takes 6 months to complete. Hope this helps.

    Thank you so much! I will go ahead and get started on the immunizations since the Hep B takes 6 months. Once we apply for the nursing program, I hope they have people to help us through the next steps so we know what to expect.

    Yup...Hep B takes a while. I started last Nov so my last set should be in May...just in time for the application window.

    ratemyprofessor.com is an AWESOME website. I too use that when planning my classes. So far it seems to work out. I'm loving my profs this semester...they make the course seem so easy...but then again we are in the 2nd week of the semester so I guess I'll see how it goes.

    Does anyone know if we can register for the HESI now?...I know you can take it 6 weeks before the semester ends when completing your pre-reqs. I just didn't want the date and location that I wanted to be full.

    Wishing everyone the best of luck this semester!

    You can email and ask. That is what I did. I was taking my last pre-req, physiology, in fall 2009 and the last HESI date of that year was December 18th. I emailed in October and stated my situation and that I was in my last pre-req and wanted to turn in my nursing app as soon as the app period opened and they let me sign up for it.

    Thanks RADIATIONRN2BE!

    I will definitely ask the nursing department.

    How's nursing school so far? I'm considering doing the hybrid program as well but I still have lots of time to decide.

    I'm wishing you the Best of Luck this semester...and all of the semesters in nursing school!

    It's going good. Definitely stressful. Like it has been said on here before, it isn't super hard material, it is just A LOT of it. We had our first clinical day today which was just an orientation to the hospital so it went quickly. Hybrid is awesome!! The instructors are excellent and really are there to help you succeed. Since beginning classes last week I have spent about 4 hours a night studying and reviewing the material and watching the videos on the ADN website. We have our first mastery checkoff over physical assessment tomorrow afternoon. It is hard to believe I am finally a nursing student after spending the last two years doing pre and co-reqs. I never thought this day would come. If ya'll have any questions I can do my best to help out. I remember turning to this forum when I was starting pre-reqs and I always appreciated any info from someone who actually went through the program.

    Here is the link to all the HESI dates and locations:

    http://www.austincc.edu/health/rnsg/HESI.php


    I am also down to my last year of co's and pre's. I never thought this day would come that I could say, "At the end of this year I will apply to nursing school." It been a long road. This year will definitely be the toughest. I am taking Microbiology with my elective this term and in the fall will take Pharmacology and Physiology. I got my CNA last summer and have an interview at St. David's next friday for a CNA position. I really hope I get it. I hear the best nurses are those who started from the bottom up. I want ever advantage I can get before entering nursing school.

    I wish everyone the best..... Keep moving forward and never give up
