    I have no idea how many seats there are for the quest program, sorry. Have you been to a nursing information session? You could probably find out that information there.

    Quest app period is the same as the basic track...one more week until it opens! Can you tell I'm excited? Lol

    For HESI, yes you must pass all 5 sections with a 75 or higher. The 3 Eng scores are used in the scoring and the math & a&p portions are used in case any tie breakers are needed. The Eng scores are added up and divided by 25 to figure out your points (Eng GPA) in that section. If you fail one portion then you have to retake the entire test, you cannot retake just that section.

    Hope that helps!

    Hey everyone!
    I want to apply at this period for Basic track which starts Jan 2013, but my scores are very....very low Psych-B, Eng 1301-B, A&P I and II- A in both, HESI-84. I am retaking Hesi on the 25th of this month, and I am also retaking Psych this summer. I will try to apply this time and if I do not get in I'll try again next year...Good luck to you all!!

    Hi everyone! I am also applying for the Kingwood Basic Track program that starts in Jan 2013. Right now I have an 11.73 and overall GPA of 3.8. I'm still trying to decide if I should retake the Hesi one more time and try for a higher score. I attended an information session a couple of months ago and the director said that the cut off for the last 6 years was an 11.3. My husband works with a woman who is in her second year at Kingwood and she said her class was an 11.6 or higher. Has anyone else heard anything like this?

    I want to wish everyone best wishes!

    Hey! I'm applying to Kingwood also with an 11.7! I was told by the advisor at Kwood that last year's cutoff was an 11.4. I also worried about needing to retake the HESI but she advised me not to and she felt really good about my 11.7. I hope that helps! Have you put your app in yet?

    Thank you sapadgett, that does make me feel better! I put my application in on July 9th, but my HESI scores are not showing on the score sheet. I completed Medical Microbiology the day after I applied and that grade has already been updated on my score sheet, but for some reason my HESI is missing. I took the HESI on June 14th. Have you already applied? I am planning on calling Valerie on Monday to see what might be going on. I wish you the best and hope to meet you if we both get accepted. It's going to be a LONG 2 months waiting for letters to go out!

    @ emahewa....I just completed Medical Microbiology with a woman who was accepted into the nursing program at Tomball with a 10.8. I had to retake my english and psych courses last summer and I was able to make A's in both. I took them online and I the structure of the courses was great. My instructors were Racquel Henry for psych and Ginger Fray for english. Good luck with the HESI. Do you have the HESI study guide?

    I am having the same issues with HESI scores!! I took mine way back in Feb and they aren't showing up. That makes me feel better that I'm not the only one having issues...I've had a huge knot in my stomach about it. :/ Lol I am also going to call or go down there Monday..hopefully we can get this figured out!

    Lol, me too! That make me feel a lot better! I thought it might be just me and that somehow my HESI scores got lost. I know we have plenty of time to get it figured out, but I still just fret over things. I keep telling myself that no matter the outcome, I should still let this be an exciting time and not let it stress me out. Until Monday....hope you have a good weekend!
