    From what I understand you have to pass RNSG 1301 and score 90% or above THEN start the program Spring 2012. So the letter is pretty much conditional admissions depending on how you do in RNSG 1301 Exam.

    Hi! I just received my invitation to take pharmacology at HCC this fall and I have a question regarding some of the registration prequisites.
    -Where do I have to go for the background check and drug test?
    -HCC says your cpr certification must be from a "healthcare provider" cpr course. Which cpr course do I need to take? Do they accept regular cpr, or am I supposed to take ACLS before I stat pharmacology?

    Any help you can offer would be DEEPLY appreciated!

    To reply to others' posts:
    -It is also my understanding that if we do well this Fall in pharmacology we will be admitted in Sping 2012
    -I took the HESI at a prometric testing center 3 weeks ago and received my invitation to the course just two days ago, so they are still accepting HESI scores for now
    -My best advice for the HESI is pray and study the HESI study guide you can buy from Amazon. I saw several test questions during my actual HESI exam that matched the practice questions in the study guide verbatim.
    -I did not get to use a calculator, but I have heard that some testing centers allow this)

    Also, a tip for anyone needing the immunizations: google "department of health Houston" because these locations offer the required immunizations for just $10 each if you have a student ID and do not have health insurance.

    Good luck everyone! I am very excited!

    All our questions will be answered at the orientation. Yea there are probably a ton of folks who got selected for RSNG 1301, but there will be a selected few who actually score 90% or above on the Math exam. I've applied to several other schools just in case HCC doesn't work out.

    I believe the drug test, physical, and immunizations must be completed PRIOR to the first day of RNSG 1301. You can't wait for orientation.

    I don't see anywhere on the letter that states that the background check, immunizations, physical exam, drug screening, or CPR have to be completed by the first day of RNSG 1301. Hep B takes as long as 6 months to complete so its pretty much no brainer were going to be told at the HCC student orientation what is expected of us. Plus, orientation is the "first day of class."

    That makes sense, especially as the RNSG 1301 invitation letter states that we will "accept immunizations" at orientation. A guidance counselor told me it must be completed by the first day of class, but perhaps she meant the first day of the RN program rather than the first day of RNSG 1301 orientation. I did receive a handout from the HCC during the Essential Requirements meeting about getting immunizations though, and I am not sure why they would give it out so early if it were not required early on. They gave it to me well before I took the HESI. I wish someone from the department would return my emails or calls.

    Sorry, just saw the previous posts that u have already taken Hesi. They now require the teas v? I don't even know what that is! It seems everytime I get a piece of info from an advisor, I find out later something has changed. This whole process is really frustrating

    Yup, I took the HESI last month. So you're going for a Fall 2012 intake to HCC & WCJC? When I found out that HCC was transitioning to the TEAS V I made sure HCC was still going to accept the HESI. I registered for the HESI as quick as possible because the TEAS V was much harder for me. Luckily HCC still accepted the HESI up until Aug 1, 2011. Anything after that students have to turn in a TEAS score.
