    Thank you so much!I actually followed the thread you were in when you guys were waiting for your acceptance letters! I was emotional with all of you guys during that time! I am so thrilled that you made it through! If you could give me the best advice, what would it be?

    Best advice about the program?

    Know that it does get better/easier! Your 1st semester, you will feel so overwhelmed, especially if you don't have a medical background. The instructors do a great job at easing you into the world of nursing but it's a totally new way of thinking. You will probably cry when you get your first test grade and concepts will not fully click in your brain until you are half way through the program. I am just now feeling confident and comfortable when taking the exams and am just now seeing the 'big picture' when it comes to the disease process and how it can affect multiple body systems, etc. I wish I could go back and retake 1st semester over again! lol

    Hello! I have been trying to get into the TWU nursing program and it is looking as though that will be nearly impossible. Their point system is structured by 'first attempt A's' in four classes (A/P 1&2, Micro, and Statistics). I only have 2/4 of those points and the likelihood of me being accepted with that is slim. I live close to Brookhaven and want to apply there as well. Is the HESI difficult? TWU requires the TEAS, which is extremely hard. I made a 79% on that test. I hope there are still spots available for me to take the HESI this semester! Suggestions for signing up and/or studying? Also, I have not taken Patho or End of Life Issues...will this hinder me much? I just want to get a gauge on my chances for Brookhaven. Thank you so much ahead of time and good luck to those applying!

    Briterz: May I ask what you stats were? Just curious as to what semester you applied, how many applicants, what your GPA was and how many points you had? Thank you!

    I eventually would like to go to UTA to do their bridge program for RN-BSN program. I am not sure about TWA but I heard it is very difficult to get in. You nearly have to have a 4.0 GPA to get accepted. As fas as Brookhaven is concerned, the prerequisites are Chemistry, English I, A&P I, and Psychology. You do not have to have any of the support courses done when you apply, but it does help to give you more points. I am not sure if the HESI is difficult or not. That is what I am studying for now. I plan on taking it in September at Brookhaven. There are still slots available to take it. On the DCCCD website for Brookhaven, on the Nursing Program page, there is a link about the HESI and all of the information you need is there. I am using a Nursing Entrance study guide that I purchased on my Nook for now. I will eventually try to get an official study guide. THe first day to take it is September 3rd. Also El Centro offers a Nursing program and their prerequisites are A&P I, English I, and Psychology. THey require no math for prerequisites!

    How many points do you have before HESI? I am hoping for 30 points when I apply....seems to be what's needed for acceptance :/

    Right now I have 13.71 points before the HESI. I also would like to have over 30 points when I apply. So that means I have to get a 95 or higher on the HESI. I am studying for that now! How many points do you have?
